About Andrew Potts

I moved to Kauai in early 2023 from San Diego after visiting the island for just a few days in 2022. Since then, it has been an amazing home and I'm still not done exploring everything there is to offer. I love sharing my van with first-time visitors and island regulars/residents. Please let me know if you'd like help deciding what to do and places to see!

Bed was little short for anyone 6 foot+ might need a bigger bed. Overall great camper and easy to drive.

It was amazing - wish it was 4 wheel drive for certain occasions but all in all Andrew was amazing and so was his van 🙌🏽 would recommend for adventurous people!

Andrew was a great host, very helpful and responsive and made everything easy for us with delivering and returning the van.
The van worked well for our purpose of wanting to see a lot of the island without being tethered down. It is in good shape and comes with some nice amenities. The bed is most suitable for a solo person or a couple with both parties under 5’8’’.

Thanks for the review Shannon! I just ordered a custom pad to extend the bed out a bit further. I’ll include pictures when the van is updated, glad you enjoyed your trip to Kauai!

We really enjoyed the 3 nights trip with Snowball and made a very special birthday experience in Kauai:)
We were amazed at how the space can be used very efficiently. We were a group of three people but Snowball could easily fit 4 people, including our 4 suitcases and 2 backpacks. Also, I liked the stove + sink area. All kitchen stuff was very well equipped and we could feel the host's consideration of our trip!
Sleeping was good. It has a nice vented system upper and down the floor. very cozy and spacious.
Andrew the host was so easy to reach out to, good communication, and we appreciated his flexibility and recommendations of Google Maps Spot.
Of course, snowball is a delicate old car, and the engine is not the most powerful for going uphill, but it has a unique character and all of us fall in love with Snowball.
Thank you snowball. You are amazing❤️

Wonderful Van, awesome stay! Andrew was always very quick to communicate and met us at the airport the morning of our flight home for easy drop off.

No issues at all with Andrew or his van. He was very quick to reply with any questions we had during our rental. His van was great and made our Hawaiian vacation a memorable one!

Andrew was a great host. He was gracious and generous with his time prior to us leaving, and gave us very good advice for things to do on the island. The van itself was easy to drive, very clean and has all the amenities you could want. Loved having the mobility it offered and it’s truly the best way to see Kauai! Thank you Andrew!

We had a great time using this van on Kauai. Andrew was very accommodating. Before, during and after the trip. We had some concerns about the van being too warm, and he ensured us about the fans and mosquito net (so we could the back door open during the night. Since Kauai is not that big, it was also easy to stop by his place for a quick fix.
We definitely had to get used to the van life, but it definitely grew on us. We visited several campsites around Kauai: Kumu, Anini and Salt Pond. Kumu is the only private campground, but it's location is further from the best spots. Its great you can stay at the state beach parks, but you will have to be okay with a more parking lot experience and no private showers (showers are also cold, but to be honest with Hawaii's weather you don't really realize it).
Thanks to the provided gas and the coolbox, we were able to make our own breakfast every morning. The battery of the van seems to last forever, we could comfortably keep everything running during the day or night without worrying about power.
Due to my length as tall dutch guy (6ft3) I opted for the extra sleeping pad in the center aisle. We also made a lot of use of beach umbrella as add-on extra.
