Aloha, My name is Rob and I have a passion for world travel. I have spent a great deal of time exploring this world and have experienced many beautiful places, cultures and people throughout. During my travels I have stayed in hostels, vans, hotels, motels, tents and even hospitable people's homes. Some were very nice and enjoyable... and others not so much. I now live on the Big Island of Hawaii with my beautiful wife and continue to enjoy exploring everything this amazing island has to offer. I want to share that enjoyment with other adventurous spirits who want to explore this island with the freedom and wonder lust that only comes with traveling by camper van!
Aloha, meet Carlos Vantana. This smooth low rider will get you around the beautiful Big Island of Hawaii with class and style. No need to waste money on expensive rooms and rental cars here. You and Carlos can experience all the wonder and lore this island has to offer in one convenient and economical package.
Grilling Utensils Included
About the host, Hawaii Island Campers
Carlos was everything we hoped for and more! Robert was also very responsive and helpful with any questions we had. I highly recommend booking Carlos Vantana!
Rent this van. Do not rent any other van. If you want a true local Hawaiian experience, this is the van for you. This van is your mobile living oasis, as you traverse the entire island. With power points, inverter, fan, tons of storage areas, super comfy mattress, and lots of thoughtful extras, this van is equipped with everything you will need to travel and sleep in comfort during your vacation. And because it has local character, it will not stand out as a tourist vehicle, giving you a more authentic feel and experience. This van is very special and not for everyone. It will get you wherever you are going with Aloha , and it appreciates your love and care in return. If you rent Carlos, please don't abuse him or be rough with him. He is a great friend and gives kindness back, as you treat him well. If you want a new cheap rental car to use and abuse or a pampered resort, then please go elsewhere. But if you want a truly relaxing and amazing set of local wheels, that will give you freedom to explore in privacy, then rent this van. You will not be sorry if you do. Best van ever!

Blanca has some dents and dings, doors that don't work, and will pinch your arm if you rest it on your open drivers side window, but she'll get you wherever you want to go. She has great brakes, a whisper quiet engine that has all the power you need, and a dream of a mattress to sleep on. If you can get past the cosmetic issues, you will have an excellent time! Pic is from the Green Sand Beach trail head. She had no problem getting up and down that slope to the ocean!

We loved our time in the van! Rob was easy to communicate with and very accommodating to our schedule. The van was super comfortable and had great extra amenities (toilet paper, cleaning supplies, etc). Would definitely recommend the van for touring the beautiful big island.
