My wife Haleigh and I are returned Peace Corps volunteers from the Philippines currently living in Hawaii. We don't live on the ocean so we built a van that could bring our home to the beach. We consider the van the perfect way to escape town and enjoy any of the many activities we cherish - climbing, surfing, biking, kayaking, diving, hiking, or spear fishing.
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.
This vehicle is to remain smoke free. No pets. No climbing on the roof. No driving in the sand or off-roading, keep it on the pavement. Enjoy all of the luxuries of the van but please treat her with respect, she's getting old. The van takes premium gas (>91 octane), it will be rented full so please return it the same way. The van needs about a minute to warm up from a cold start, so give her that time to get warm while you finish packing up and then head on your way! The van's minimum clearance is 7'6", so be mindful of parking garages. Certain areas of the island can be prone to theft, make a plan to secure the vehicle or avoid those areas if possible.

What a wonderful trip we had starting with our host, Cole Hendrickson. We are so delighted to have found Cole and Haleigh and the offer of their fabulous VW bus for our trip to Hawai'i. We immediately felt welcome even before arriving on the island. The accommodations were fantastic with modern upgrades and amenities to make us comfortable in any situation. They communicated often and right away plus gave us a welcoming postcard to start our trip. They even provided guides to the island to make our adventure all the more engaging to explore. We would rent again and again! Thank you Cole & Haleigh!
Everything about this trip was excellent. Cole did an amazing job with the van and thought about every detail (both in terms of functionality as well as small things that give the van a homey feel). Additionally, Cole was quick to respond before and during the trip to make sure everything went smoothly.
The Adventure Van was such a sweet way to get around the island! The van was well equipped with anything & everything one might need on the road. Cole was a great communicator and answered messages promptly whenever needed. Would recommend to friends & come back with family to rent again!!
