Great van and great trip to Maui. Even did well on the road to Hana. Rachel was a great host even though I told her the wrong times for our arrival!!

Bessie the beast is beautiful! Had a fantastic time cruising around Maui in her…she’s well loved and has the external war wounds to prove it but fared absolutely fine down the road to Hana. Rachel and Jadon have done a spectacular job of decking her out, beautifully adorned with lots of cool trinkets as well as practical things like loads of lights and plenty of pillows/bedding to keep you comfy at night! The van comes extremely well stocked…you’ll have everything you need for cooking and beach trips! You honestly won’t need to bring/buy anything other than food/drink and your aloha spirit! Jadon even leant us 2 of his surfboards in exchange for a tip! Rachel was very accommodating and let us return the van much later than check out at no extra charge. She also gave us lots of useful local tips. Very thankful to the whole fam for allowing us to experience Maui in Bessie!

Rachel was great! She had the van stocked up with everything we could have possibly needed. The unique character of the van (curated by Jadon) really enhanced our experience and made it feel like a traveling home complete with the island spirit. We had numerous people complement ol' Bessie the Beast during our travels. Highly recommend!
We had so much fun in Rachel's van! "Big Bessie" may be big and imposing but she helped us blend in a little more with the locals. The shower on the side was super handy and we found it indispensable. There were so many useful things like shampoo and towels that it made it easier for us to pack lighter. The chairs and umbrella were great and kept us from burning our butts off under the hot Hawaiian sun. Probably the very best thing is that Rachel lets you take Bessie on the Road to Hana. It is a MUST if you get the opportunity to drive it. If you show respect to the locals like they deserve, it's nothing less than a wonderful experience. The people are so friendly. 100% recommend; go the adventure route and explore the beauty of the island in this awesome, homey camper van! Mahalo, Rachel!
