We are looking to help offset the cost of owning this beautiful VW Camper. I have been a car enthusiast my whole life and finally found this bus and completed the dream of owning a “Bay Window” camper. The bus is meticulously maintained and I’m happy to speak at length about the bus! We have had apartments on Airbnb for over a year with “Superhost” status and over 40 5 star ratings, so we take special care to make sure our guests are happy. Know you are renting from a true fan and beloved owner who will take the time to make sure your trip is wonderful!

Brian was a great host. Vehicle was clean and stocked with linen necessities including biodegradable cups and plates.
But, when a last minute change in plans occurred due to Covid, he was completely understanding. (No the renters did NOT test positive)
Sweet Pea was fun to drive for the limited time we had her. We hope to reschedule our trip and bring Sweet Pea along.

I had a blast with Sweet Pea traveling around MA, visiting friends and camping at the beach. Sweet Pea is great fun to drive and a nice smooth ride. It helps to have some muscle to turn the (non-power) steering wheel but you get so many thumbs ups and shout outs from passers-by on the road, you hardly notice. I had a huge smile the whole week.
It's amazing that a vehicle almost 50 years old could be in such great shape, inside and out.

We loved Sweet Pea! Didn’t want to give her back 😂 Brian was an awesome host and the bus is fully stocked for camping. No need to bring anything really! We did have a mosquito net though that we wrapped around the back hatch and side windows to keep bugs out when sleeping. Took it for a few days ourselves and then home to CT for a staycation with the kids! Lap belts are safe with car seats (but not booster seats), so we put our almost 6 year old in her old car seat (she’s still within the weight limits of it) and she was thrilled!! The other lap belt was too short to put through our other car seat, but our toddler was too young for most of our excursions anyhow. We also went to a drive in movie, which was such fun! When the heat wave abated, our daughter slept in it with me and loved it. She’s going to contribute her piggy bank money to buying a bus! 😂 Bottom line, rent this bus to for a great getaway or staycation, with or without your kids!! 🥰

Excellent Cape adventures on Sweet Pea! While we got a ton of smiles and waves while cruising up the seashore, I would caution potential renters that you should understand the van is a bit of commitment. The lack of power steering, it's height, and it being a 4-speed means you're getting a bit of a workout if you plan to do a lot of driving. There's nothing wrong with that and it's ton of fun when you get the hang of it, but patience is a virtue here.

Sweet Pea is amazing! We had the best time camping in this adorable VW! Brian was so easy to communicate with and when we had a small problem he was so quick and kind about helping us get it fixed! The camper van has literally anything you could need and is so spacious! Prepare to be a showstopper as you cruise around in this beauty. Could not recommend this more if you’re looking for a little adventure!

We loved everything about our adventure with Sweet Pea and would rent her again! Brian was extremely responsive and a great communicator. All in all, a great experience!
