My wife and I had a GREAT 4 day road trip around Maui. Luis was excellent in guiding us - Gilbert takes great care of this VW. The Westy was in good overall condition for an '88. We camped with the ocean just feet from us, crested Haleakala, and wound down the road to Hana - black sand beach, red sand beach, Pipiwei trail, snorkeled here and there. If you're a hearty soul and love the freedom to explore, this is for you. If you prefer a daily hot shower versus an ocean swim and a beach side rinse, this might not be for you, and that's ok. We had a fantastic reunion with our past Westy travels. Thank you Luis!
We loved our van! We love Paul! We love Maui! It was exactly how we envisioned exploring Maui.
Great experience! These guys are great, pick up and drop off was a breeze, everything onboard that you need. It’s an old vehicle so the little quirks that come with that are to be expected but it runs great and was a steal of a deal. Definitely saved a ton of money doing Maui this way over a normal rental car and didn’t have to get a hotel either. Tons of great free spots to camp all over the island. Will definitely book again.
Paul was so great! This van became our best friend on our journey through Maui and we were sad to have to say goodbye to it on our last day. It ran great and was super comfy for sleeping. It had a great set up for throwing a surfboard in the back as well. Paul is great to work with and he takes really good care of his vans. We would totally recommend renting through him!
Paul is very helpful and easy to deal with! We rented his van and it was a great way to explore the island. Can definitely recommend renting thru Paul!
Paul is a super friendly guy with a lot Aloha spirit. He hooked us up with the van on extremely short notice and even offered to bring us to a coffee shop to wait until the van would be ready for us. Nothing really to complain about the van if you consider its age. It's really comfy and it drives really smoothly. And we got a lot of really good equipment (torch, lantern, cutlery, stove, towels, camping chairs, paper towels, wet wipes, phone holder for windshield and a lot more). Overall we loved it and would definitely book it again.
Renting this camper van is a life changing experience. THE BEST WAY to experience Maui and be enveloped by the wonder of the island. Sorin is a wonderful caretaker of this beautiful chariot. Rent this thing, pack the cooler and explore the whole island with an adventure home on wheels. You'll be very glad you didn't stay at a condo.
We really enjoyed our trip with the camper van and had a great time! Pick-up was easy, quick and really helpful.
Communication with Paul was easy. The van was exactly as advertised and we had a great time experiencing Maui in it. It was reliable, clean, and came with everything you need. Only need to bring your clothes! Definitely recommend this to others.
Paul was very nice to pick us up and drop us off at the airport. The van was in decent shape for it's age. Unfortunately Maui isn't really set up for car camping - campgrounds with amenities like bathrooms, showers and picnic tables are rare and hard to find especially in the Kihei area. It was very nice to have room for all our beach gear and suitcases in the van as we travelled around, but I felt a bit like a homeless person hoping to find a legal and private place to sleep every night. It would be better to have a very specific camping plan, which we did not have. Overall the van was fine, but just found the camping less than ideal.
This is a great van and way to explore the island. Marcy was wonderful too. Super communicative and help.
Excellent experience. Sorin was very responsive via email. The Westy was perfect. We spent several days camping around the Hana Highway. The Westy was in perfect condition and extremely clean. I was hesitant to get a manual but glad I did since it provided a little more mobility and power climbing and turning the windy roads.
If your looking to check out for awhile bummin’ around Maui in this van is the ticket.
This was a fantastic vehicle and a great way to spend time in Maui. The owner was extremely flexible and helpful in arranging pick-up and drop-off times. The vehicle ran smoothly and worked well. There was a small issue with the coolant leaking but it was dealt with. We really enjoyed our 5 days in the vehicle and recommend camping around the island of Maui.
We loved renting Paul's Astro Van! It was clean, ran well, and had plenty of room for two. Paul was friendly, communicative, and easy to work with, and he picked us up and dropped us off at the airport. We loved being able to wake up on a new part of the island each morning, and not be tethered to coming back to one location every night. The freedom of being able to make up our plan as we went made for great adventuring. It is super easy to find pullouts or campgrounds where you can sleep everywhere on the island. We will definitely be coming back and renting with Paul again!!
Paul and Sam really made an effort for us to enjoy our stay on Maui. They answered right away before we arrived, they were incredibly nice to pick us up close to where we stayed over night and delivered us a perfectly suitable car together with amazing information about how to discover Maui the best way. We would highly recommend Paul and Samuel at RV Share when you want to discover Maui in a cheaper and more fun and unorthodox way. We got to see everything we wanted and even more thanks to them! They presented all the secret spots on the island and helped ud find places to spend the nights. The RV comes with a cooler, lamp, guide book, map, madrass, Big blanket, beach chairs and pillows. Don’t be scared by Sam’s anger. He is just from St. Louis :D
Van was great! Came with more then we expected! Van had no issues. Paul was easy to work with, was available if needed. We'll be using him again!
The RV was well equipped & comfortable. Sorin swamped us out for a red one with the same specs as this one. He was super accommodating and a pleasure to deal with. The camper did break down at one point, but with free roadside assistance, we had it towed and Sorin had the issue fixed promptly, giving us his truck to visit the crater in the interim. We were very happy with the experience and would rent it again!
We had a blast in our camper van! Josh provided great advice on places to stay overnight and it was easy to visit lots of great places around the island. An adventure we won't soon forget!
Great van! Runs well, water works well, has stove and utencels , it has every little thing in it that you might have forgot to pack. Paul and Sam are really on the level and are easy to deal with.
I had this van "Paia" for 5 Nights and I had a AMAZING time. I camped my first night at Olowalu as recommended, which was the perfect start as they have had the amenities I needed(hot showers!) and gave me a chance to reorganize to to fit my board and gear how I wanted. I ended up taking the van around the entire Island in a figure 8 and went through Kaupo with no problem(don't take it fast, soak in the sights and drive Hawaiian!) Van is wide enough to sleep in comfortable but still fits in all the "1" lane roads, I only had to back up once to let someone through but i was truly a 1 lane road. I didn't offroad but parked it in grass,dirt,mud and never got stuck. Van started Strong and suck gas if you push it hard, so drive like a Hawaiian, cruise and go easy on the brakes(they work but is a heavy van with you and the gear so it wont stop like my Mustang), 55mph is the fast you need to go to save on MPG and take in the sights. Its got shades and little window to let in a breeze, Hang a towel between the front seats and You got good privacy. I never got hot sleeping in it and the seat was super comfortable, no bugs got in unless you leave the door open to long. This is not a 2018 Van, its showing some age but it works! and its easier to let you inner beach bum free when you don't have to stress about messing it up. It was in better shape them my 2003 Stratus when I sold it which i find impressive cause I'm sure a lot of other people had an amazing experience it in. If you still not sold on doing Maui in this Van, here's the best part. You never have to go back to your hotel. I camped in Hana got up super later(8AM) and still beat all the tourist to all the water falls and awesome Spots. And Sam will hook you up, he's been living on the Island long enough to know all the good surf spots, camping spots and was super helpful and answered all my questions. Im hooked! Im going to buy one of these in Cali and never rent again! My plan was to cruise, chill, surf, snorkel, cliff dive, eat da local food, hike and get away from all that lame touristy crap. The locals loved it when you show up in this van and I even ran into another one of Paul's rentals. The Westfalia's have got that vibe but they are small and under powered. If you here to experience Maui this Van is the way to go! Go out there make your Own Maui Adventure!
We had a lot of fun in your RV van. Thanks for all the attention to detail you gave us. It was a blast from the past!
We nicknamed the van Mama Kea since Kea means white, and the van took such good care of us while traveling around the Big Island. She's a bit older, and the shocks could use updating, but for the cost we have no complaints. It would be nice if the selector switch for the A/C worked so you could blow the air somewhere other than defrost, but again, older vehicles do this.
Doing buisness with Paul is great, very helpful and all around good vibes. The car is clean and is a good deal. You'll also discover than being in Maui and having a non-shiny rental car is pretty cool since you blend a little more. Had a blast in this van, hope you have one too. Aloha.
Paul was really nice. Pick up and drop off at the Airport. Super communication. Paul organized Camping Equipment. The Car was really comfortable and well equiped. Two weeks travelling maui with Pauls camper was a wonderful experience. We will come back and rent Pauls Camper.
I can't begin to say how great this experience was. Josh was a great person to work with, nice, polite, patient and knew the ins and outs of the vehicle. Pick up and drop off were flawless and easy. I would recommend renting from Josh and will be to my friends!
We loved cruising the island in this van. Since the van is a little older and not wild colors like other rental vans, we fit right in and were often mistaken for locals. The mattress in the back was very comfortable and we were able to stretch it out the full length so it was like any queen sized bed. Our linens were clean and comfortable, as were the pillows, and we were given 5 towels. Even the tub the linens came in was perfect for putting all of our groceries in - nothing was rolling around. The cooler was a good size for fitting in the van and for the drinks and food we needed. The van ran well and the AC was so pleasant on those hot Maui days. The van also came with an amazing guide book and 2 maps of Maui. Paul was great to do business with and we would love to rent a van from him again. Mahalo!
Paul was an outstanding host, he prepared us ahead of time and provided a great guide to help us navigate the island. Paul was always available at any time and we definitely would hire another van from Paul for glamping on Maui. Glamping on Maui is the way to go!
That was a particularly unique experience to drive all around the island in a genuine 80's surf camper. Lucas is a very nice guy to meet and to deal with. Always available and very sharing and helping. We ran in a couple of problems independently of the van condition during our stay and he was here to help us out. I would definitely recommend renting this van.
