  • HOW CAN I SAVE $25 ON FIRST RENTAL AND Where can I buy camping supplies I will need?
    SAVE $25 BY JOINING TURO VIA THIS LINK Costco is right near the airport. Walmart and Super Target are 1 mile away from the Kahului airport.
  • Do I need reservations and permits for camping?
    Sometimes like if you want to camp at Wiaanapanapa you do so go here for state park camping For National parks at Hosmers and Kipahulu its first come first serve, no permits or reservations. For County parks of which there are many, its first come first serve, Note Kanaha is by the airport and closed For Free beach camping its Olawalu. There is also a private camp ground thats not free but has bathrooms and showers. Must check out this beautiful Boy Scout camping spot for Lulu too:
  • Baby? Car seats? Nannies?
    We take out the back seats to give campers more room. If you have a baby car seat we leave in the seat behind the driver for this purpose. Just let me know ahead of time. Kula has a Maui Nanny service which is good for hotels or if you are going up to the summit and your baby is too young for the altitude and/or you want a romantic time.
  • What if my flight comes in very late at night or we are in hotels the first few nights?
    Let us know what you need, most times we can make arrangements to meet and greet and work it out to fit YOUR schedule. We are very creative and meeting your timing is important to us. Another example is if you rent a week and just need a car for a day or two when you arrive while in hotels, tell us and we will give you half off on hotel day before or after the week of camping begins.
  • Where is the best place to eat when we arrive (or are leaving) not far from the airport?
    Cafe Ole at the Maui Lani Dunes golf course has the best fish special and other breakfast/ lunches/dinners with the best food, views and lowest price drinks anywhere. Officially called Cafe O Lei at the Dunes 1333 Maui Lani Pkwy, Kahului, HI 96732 Enjoy - they also have a driving range and putting greens! Whole Foods has longer hours and a great buffet close to the airport.

Booked Carl’s 2010 Honda Element ECamper three months in advance and confirmed one week prior to my trip... but had my reservation canceled the day before arrival due to an error on his end. Arranged booking with Carl’s 2005 Honda Element ECamper instead since I was without alternative for both rental car and room accommodations. Vehicle has more wear/tear (loose steering wheel cover, one corner of the pop top separating from roof shell, and check engine light on) compared to the ECamper I originally booked. Also of note, no longer has the exterior awning as shown in Turo’s pictures. Still acceptable overall, unique experience that I did not want to pass up. Wish it was as trouble free of a process as other reviewers have had. Make sure you mention how many people will be at the airport pickup point as that will determine what vehicle will be used for transit when you arrive. I had to leave half my group behind to go off site and retrieve the car, then come back for them after.

Carl was great & very accommodating. Reconnected with the aina—what better way then camping, hiking, from the beach to the mana of Haleakalā, & all that Maui has to offer with up close with LuLu. Maui no ka oi!
