We loved the campervan and being able to spend a week exploring Maui was amazing. We highly recommend it! The campervan itself was very comfortable and included everything we needed for our trip. Pick up and drop off was very easy and our communication was right on.
The Van is definitely a great way to discover Hawaii.You van enjoy superb locations at a great cost. This said, it is close to camping and you must be prepared to it. The van is superior for activities (Kayaks are #1, SUPs are good) but some amenities are below par (kitchen kit must be improved, freezer...well I don't really understand). Overall it is great however
Really great experience with Josh. Van was a cool few nights away and we are now looking to get something similar at home. Had everything in there we needed to enjoy Oahu including some great touches such as a head lamp and bug spray. If you are looking for an affordable combination of accommodation and transport, this is lots of fun :)
Nice, very comfortable and well equiped van for two adults and two kids. Very friendly and helpful contact. Everything was clean practical. We can absolutely recommend this van.
Amazing experience! The guys from Campervan Hawaii were super and this is THE best van to rent on the island. Punctual airport pickup when we landed in Maui, and even flexible with us on our departure day to help us check in at the airport a little early. Brian and Zach were very helpful to us getting started on our first day, from understanding the van to learning some local tips on where to sightsee, shop and find groceries. The Hymer was a great van for experiencing Maui - it handled the Road to Hana and to the top of Haleakala just fine. It was a bit cozy for our family of 4 (we're used to a Class A back home) but the layout worked well and we got the hang of setting up the beds fairly quickly. Being able to run the A/C off the batteries (and being able to charge using the quiet van engine instead of a noisy generator) was great! This is the way to see the island :)
Ariel and Luis were a pleasure to work with. Very helpful and professional. We had some mechanical problems with the first camper van, but Ariel made a pre-sunrise trip out to provide us with a replacement. I would gladly rent from these guys again. Thanks for the great experience!
My girlfriend and I rented a Campervan and spent the weekend on the North Shore of Oahu. What a fantastic time we had! We live on Oahu, so we are used to tent camping and staying at many different hotels, but we have never experienced anything more fun or romantic than this. The van was perfect in every way and fully equipped with all the necessities we needed to relax and enjoy ourselves during our weekend stay. We slept like babies on the comfortable and roomy bed. Falling asleep to the sound of the ocean was such a treat. Having a bathroom was also another huge plus. It was nice to be able to wash off after the beach with a hot shower, and the convenience of having your own personal bathroom to use when needed was huge. Sean was super friendly and made the pick-up/drop-off quick and easy. It took a little while to show us how everything worked, but Sean was very detailed and answered all the questions we had. By the end of the walk through we felt confident and ready to hit the road. Campervan Hawaii is a great option for a weekend staycation/vacation. Staying in the camper van alowed us the greatest flexabilty. You can fall asleep under the stars next to the ocean, waking up to a different view everyday. You can spend the day lounging on the beach and cook a delicious meal in the fully equipped kitchen. Or you can sip wine while watching the sunset in the evening. Most importantly one can create memories that will last a life time while spending cherished time with your loved ones. Campervan Hawaii gave us the freedom to explore and to be closer to the spectacular nature of the island. I highly recommend trying one out if you haven't before. We are already planning our next trip to Maui and look forward to living the camper van life again:)
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.
