The last US model of the Volkswagen Westfalias is here and is great for tooling around the Big Island. This is the weekender addition which does not have the built in sink, stove, and closet and because of this, the back seat now folds down to a large queen size bed and it has a more open feeling compared to the full camper Westfalias. It's easy to drive, looks like a local car, and has all of the nostalgic VW camping experiences with the pop-top that has a small full sized bed, a fold out kitchen table, and a swiveling front seat.We have taken the stock Westfalia and have done the following:
- 3" memory foam mattress topper for lower bed
- Added a swivel seat base to the passenger front seat.
- Added a lockable metal safe below the front passenger seat
- Added an 8' x 8' retractable Fiamma awning
- Added a 35 quart Dometic refrigerator.
- Added a pressurized 7 gallon hot shower system
- Removed the rear facing seats for more room and effective use of the swiveling passenger seat
- Upgraded stereo with Bluetooth and Aux/USB inputs
- Tinted the windows for cooler vehicle and great privacy
- Super comfy floor mats in the front and back makes cleaning sand out a cinch
- 12V and 120V AC electrical system including:
- 200w solar panel
- 100AH Lithium Iron Phosphate house battery
- 2000W pure sine wave inverter
- 12V Vent fan to extract warmer air from inside the van
- 2 small 12V fans to keep you cool when you sleep at night
- 8 high power USB outlets throughout the van
These electrical upgrades will allow you to charge your phones, tablets, computers all night long as well as providing lighting and air circulation in the van for some comfortable sleeping at night. This is a huge thing. Sleeping in a van with no moving air gets very stagnant and makes for a bad night sleep. The 2000w inverter provides enough power to power a blender, blow drier, or any appliance you can throw at it and it produces a pure sine wave which will not damage sensitive electronics.We also have everything you might need to go camping.
- Bath towel for each person
- Beach towel for each person

- Lantern and flashlight
- Pots, pans and miscellaneous cooking utensils
- Bed linens and pillows

Our location, 4 miles south of the airport at 73-4195 Hukiloa Drive, is a short taxi or rideshare ride away. There both taxis Uber/Lyft are readily available when you arrive. From there, we will go over the campervan with you and teach you how to use it as well as noting any previous damage prior to you taking off. We'll then sign some paperwork and you're off. This process will take around 20 minutes or so.
If you require to pick-up or drop-off the campervan somewhere other than our parking lot, we will charge you $7 per mile from that location.Some things to note since you are renting out a vehicle:
- All drivers must be 25 years of age or older.
- All drivers will need to sign Campervan Hawaii's Standard Vehicle Rental Agreement.
- We will need a copy of driver'(s) licenses for every driver.
- If you come from outside the US, then we will need a copy of all passports for every driver.
- We include pretty much everything you need to campervan in Maui but do offer some extra items you might be interested in renting.
- $25 per trip - Children's car seat
- $25 per trip - Waterproof bluetooth speaker
- $25 per trip - Extra bed linen set
- $25 per trip - 4 person tent
- $15 per trip - Extra camp chair
Insurance:***** You are 100% responsible for damage done to the exterior and interior of the vehicle. Because of this, we require this vehicle to be insured by you during the rental. There are two options for this:
1) If your personal vehicle has full coverage insurance (and you are from the US or Canada) then most likely, this rental is covered under your own insurance. In this case, you must provide us with a declaration page from your insurance company showing your coverages and proof that your insurance covers this rental vehicle.
2) If you do not have full coverage, live outside the US and Canada, or just want to purchase insurance so you do not have to use your own personal insurance, then we can provide full coverage insurance on the campervan with a $700 deductible. There are three insurance packages to choose during the checkout process.
You can pretty much take this campervan anywhere the roads go. The six spots mentioned above are the campsites where you can reserve but there are numerous other spots where you can find a private place to camp and are off the beaten path. We'll tell you more about this after you reserve.

"We started renting campervans out of our love for being on the road and sleeping in a different spot every night and are excited to share our favorite way to travel with other outdoor and van life enthusiasts. We’ve been exploring the mainland by van for over 20 years and love the freedom it provides. After our last extended vacation in our mainland home-on-wheels we realized it would be a great way to explore these island gems of Hawai'i! When home is where you park it, there are more hours to play the day away!"

Everything was awesome!

We had a great two weeks in Braddah Iz. All the camping gear is first class and we lacked for nothing. Make sure to check all the pockets and containers before deciding you need something. There is even a clothes line and pins. The van is easy to drive and good on gas. We were fortunate to have mostly good weather other than at Volcano National Park. When it did rain we were snug inside on a comfortable bed. We’re truly grateful we chose Braddah Iz.

Our host, Matt was super kind snd helpful throughout the trip. The van itself went above and beyond our expectations. We slept well (2 people on their honeymoon), and were able to utilize its capabilities in a 5 day trip. It was dependable and beautiful and was a truly special experience. Check out Hipcamp for private camp sites. Also Beth-Ann was very helpful and gave us great recommendations for the big island. Couldn't recommend this enough.
