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.
We have one wavestorm surfboard available as an add-on. It is 8ft and foam, great for any kind of surfer.
We have two masks with snorkels available for rent.
The Adventure Van: "Holo-Holo Hale"
About the host, Cole
This van has everything you need to get and amazing adventure in Oahu, I was traveling by myself and this van was more than perfect. My two surfboard fitted under the bed. Cole is a cool dude, getting and returning the van was really easy and fast. I 100% recommend this van if you're traveling by yourself or for couples. THANKS GUYS. Mahalo. :)
Unfortunately some mechanical issues arouse right before our scheduled booking. Cole and his wife were extremely upfront and accommodating with the issues. We had to cancel, which Cole was very apologetic about. He didn't want to take any chances with our safety and I appreciated that. Although we had to cancel, Cole and his wife went above and beyond helping us to find last minute stays. They helped us find another stay and it worked out perfectly. I highly recommend booking with Cole, when I come back to Oahu I am definitely going to rent his van!
My experience with the Adventure Van was AMAZING. Everything from Cole’s quick response time, to the van details, made this stay everything I was looking for. Haleigh and Cole thought of everything! The cute details like the sea glass knobs, “come on in” welcome mat, and interior lights make this van not only inviting, but also home like. After a night of grilling out under the awning I couldn’t wait to crawl into bed to soak in the vibe inside the van!

Cole and haleigh’s camper van was amazing. The inside decor is beautiful and the van drove like a champ. The van has all the amenities needed. The bed is long and confortable to chill by the beach. I can go on and on with the van but I’ll let you experience it and fall in love with the van because it’s even more beautiful in person. Cole and haleigh were super fast to respond to our questions and had no issues. Holo-holo hale is the GOAT. Highly recommend booking this van in your next Oahu trip. Watch the video and you will take advantage of what the camper van has to offer.
