Description

Aloha. We realize you have a choice of who you want to rent a car from on our beautiful island of Kauai, and we hope you will consider renting from our family. Our sincere hope is that we are able to make your trip as easy as possible so you have a great vehicle and an easy arrival experience so you can focus on enjoying your vacation on this amazing garden island. We specialize in adventure vehicles- Jeeps and SUVs with three rows of seating so there’s plenty of room for everyone and all of your gear. This way, you can maximize your enjoyment of this beautiful place we call home. Did you know that you can simply put the back row of seats down to create even more storage space in the back of the vehicle if you don’t need the extra seats? That translates to extra room for boogie boards, or perhaps a Yeti cooler full of your favorite ice-cold beverages. There’s even room for the ukelele. Do you need a roof-rack for surfboards or SUP boards? We have options available for you, too! We are a small family with a farm on the island, and we can honestly say that your business means so much to us. We treat our guests like family, and we do our very best to ensure you have a great experience. If there is anything else you need to make your stay more enjoyable, please let us know. We also have a small equipment rental business, so we have Yeti coolers, Tommy Bahama beach chairs & umbrellas, surf & boogie boards, shade canopies, and even large canvas glamping tents available for you! If you need any of these items, we offer them to you at affordable prices so you don’t need to buy them. You can select them when you make your reservation, and we will pre-load them in the vehicle and have everything waiting for you when you arrive. How easy is that? You can just load up your crew in the vehicle, and head to the beach to relax. All of our vehicles are clean and well-maintained, and they have automatic locks and windows, cold A/C for those hot days, and some of them have additional features like sunroofs or convertible soft tops. There’s plenty of room in the trunk for your groceries from Costco. Also, to help enhance your experience even more, we will kindly share a few of our favorite places on the island with you when you rent from us, and we will have a CD from our friend and local musician in the car. You can enjoy the tunes while you’re exploring all that Kauai has to offer. It’s our small way of taking care of our ohana. We pride ourselves in extending our connections with our guests all across the world. So, all you need to do is book your reservation, and we will take care of the rest for you to help ensure you have a soft landing on the island. What are you waiting for? We hope you enjoy our magical island as much as we do. Mahalo!
