About this RV

Aloha, we’re Haleigh and Cole. We built Holo-Holo Hale in 2020 with the fullest of island life intentions. We’re climbers, hikers, surfers, divers, and mountain bikers – we wanted to build a van that could take us on all those adventures while also providing ultimate comfort. Holo-Holo Hale, translated meaning the cruising home, is a 2003 Volkswagen Eurovan GLS. The van is outfitted as the perfect island tripper, complete with hardwood floors, custom cabinetry, a retractable bed that fits even the tallest of folks, and much more. It's not perfect but it was made with a lot of aloha.

Holo-Holo Hale is ready to take you around the island, where you can pull up in your favorite campsite and enjoy Oahu in a much different way than at a hotel or Airbnb. Just pick a spot and soak in the daily sunset, sunrise, and lush mountains. The van boasts a large Yakima awning and outdoor kitchen. Welcome to luxury camping without needing to worry about rain, wind, or sleeping on uneven surfaces. The surf racks allow you to pile on as many boards as you wish and go find your dream wave.

The van was built with island life in mind and is perfect for your adventure around Oahu. Here’s to you fellow adventurer – come cruise!

What’s included?

We strongly recommend booking camp sites in advance (>2 weeks). Camping in Hawaii is very popular and can book up quickly. We love camping at Malaekahana Beach Campground - but there are many great options around the island, just make sure they are campervan friendly!

Other things to note

**If you're local to the State of Hawaii, we offer a Kama'aina discount! Message us before you book for the discount code!

Please use premium gas when refilling the van to preserve the European engine's life. We have a surf key, it is the metal unbranded key, you should use this when parking the van and swimming, surfing, diving, kayaking, or enjoying water activities.

Not only was the Van perfect and comfortable, but Cole was also super transparent and responsive to all my questions!! If you’re going to vacation in Hawai’i, you need to rent this van! So accommodating, easy to drive, and Cole even helped find a campground to stay at! 10/10!!

We had a really good experience with this car ☺️ It is really easy to drive and the design is so beautiful 😍

Two large people are fitting perfect in the bed and it’s possible to change the bed fast. The kitchen is also easy to use and we found everything’s that we needed for cooking. Thanks again that we could have our little adventure with your van 🌞

Cole and the van were both fantastic. Great communication and recommendations from cole, and the van is cozy and very well thought out. Definitely the best way to experience Oahu!

Everything about this van made our first trip to hawaii, Oahu, Perfect! The owner was very helpful with any questions we had during the trip. The van ran great, parking was a bit of a challenge in Honolulu sometimes due to the smaller entryways. Super comfy sleeping, really fun cooking capabilities, everything you would need was ready to go. I already miss it!
