Meet your host, Andrew

Member since 2021

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!

Andrew made everything super easy from an airport delivery, he was easily contactable and provided some great insight and advice for the trip ahead. No fuss check in and out. The van is kitted out so well, my partner and I both being chefs by trade enjoyed the kitchen setup with utensils galore. Our only concern was that we couldn't stay longer!

Andrea’s van was a great way to explore Kauai! My husband and I rented it for our 8-day trip to celebrate our anniversary and had our best vacation in a long, long time. Wish that we were still there. The van was a nice upgrade to our Volkswagen Eurovan that we have at home and gave us lots of flexibility. We used the van as our base camp for our Nāpali Coast backpacking trip and camped Kumu Resort, Kokee State Park, and Salt Pond Beach Park. Kumu was our favorite camp with nice neighbors, hot shower, and a beautiful beach. Andrew was a responsive and wonderful hosting giving us great recommendations for hiking., food, beaches, and more. Pickup and dropoff of the van at Andrew’s house was an easy Uber ride from the airport. Definitely recommend Andrew and his van for your next trip to Kauai:)

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!

Q.How does using the bathroom work in this camper?
A.
A portable toilet is available as an add-on for $30. Most renters find the public restrooms and showers at the campgrounds and beaches work for their trip, but if you'd like one for peace of mind please do so! Emptying the portable toilet will be the renter's responsibility.

Q.Are there any campgrounds where we shouldn't stay?
A.
Lydgate Beach Park and Ahukini State Park are both areas I would avoid camping for the night. Even during the day there have been thefts reported. Anini and Salt Pond are two of my favorites to camp!

Q.What flexibility is available for picking up and dropping off the RV?
A.
We can accomodate check-in/out in the hours between 11am and 4pm. If your travel plans have you arriving outside of this timeframe, please select Early Check In: 7am-11am or Late Checkout: 4pm-830pm as applicable in the "Add-Ons" section of when you book your trip. For any arrivals/departures outside of 7am - 830pm please send us a message so we can figure out what works best for everyone!
