It was wonderful! Although the driving took some time to get used to, giving it is not power steering and all, it was very fun to drive. The bus itself was very cute and has the essentials. Would definitely recommend! Note: Might want to bring your own Bluetooth speaker! There is a pet fee.

Loved the Van. Great way to tour Joshua Tree National Park. I would love to see a sounds system installed to interface with iphones but other than that it was a great experience. Thanks for providing such a great service!

I surprised my husband by renting a 1978, 4 on the floor, bay window bus for his 40th birthday. We took our 3, and 4yo toddlers with us on an epic 5 day road trip through the desert and mountains. The kids smiled and laughed the entire time (no joke, they never complained, and they had NO electronics). My husband looked like a kid on Christmas driving the bus. The memories we made were priceless.

The bus was clean and ran amazing. Bill and his team were more than accommodating. There’s no question, we’d love to do it again! Thanks VSW!!!

There are few experiences that can compare to driving one of these classic vans up the California coast or wherever. "Fritz" was the star of the journey and ran reliably through some steep climes and everything the PCH threw his way. I appreciated the opportunity to get back to the analogue world of the 1980's - although there is a phone jack. Truly the most unique vacation I've had in while as…

I am giving this two stars because of customer service. I would rate the van and the experience of it all five stars. The van was great and I had no issues with it. If you want to get the Westfalia experience, you should definitely rent here. The thing that wasn't great for me was the customer service. When it came time to return Hale Pua, no one was at the shop. I called a few times but did event…

We had a great experience renting the Malibu westfalia pop top van!! The van was amazing and so fun to drive! We were living the CA dream. The owners were very nice and accommodating when we had a misunderstanding about the time to pick up the van. So thankful for this experience and can’t wait to do it again!

I felt so lucky to have had this unique, one of a kind, road trip experience! Everywhere I drove, people waved, smiled, honked, gave me thumbs up and even offered to buy it! It was a real people pleaser! What better way to spread joy to the world during the holiday season than to happily cruise along the streets in a classic vw bus singing your old favorite songs and visiting friends!!!

I will definitely do it again! Ms. Malibu 79’ was the highlight of the entire Covid year! Thanks Bill and Diane!
