I'm a Jill-of-all-trades! As a free-lance music teacher and children's musical theatre composer, having lived 5 years in an RV as I homeschool my son, now that he's a teenager, we're settling down a bit more and I'm able to offer my experience in the wild, as well as my crazy campervan, to others who want an adventure!

Hestia was a wonderful host! She was extremely communicative, flexible and warm. She shared a lot of wisdom and was quick to respond with any questions I had. We had a beautiful weekend, camping in an old growth forest out of the van. Everything we needed and more was provided. We slept comfortably and had fun cooking with the little van kitchen. Grateful for Hestia’s generosity and this delightful experience!

It was great renting the Love Van from Hestia! She is super flexible, responsive and helpful. We also rented the screened-in "room" that attaches to the canopy and the cot. This was worked very well for sleeping outside on those 90+ degree days in eastern Washington. The cooking supplies are comprehensive and Hestia goes the extra mile to meet your needs. The bed inside is really large also.

I took the Love Van East towards Cle Elum for three nights after flying in from California. Hestia picked my daughter and I up at the airport and made sure we were set with everything we might need. The van was really comfortable all three nights and we had an amazing time cooking and sleeping in our home away from home. Hestia is a joy to work with and so accommodating. We look forward to our next trip with the Love Van!

This van was everything we needed and more! We did a 10 day trip staying at all tent sites around Washington and Oregon and the van was perfect. Hestia provides everything you can possibly think of and is SO responsive to any questions that pop up along the way. The van comfortably slept 3 (if you’re close with those people) and drives extremely well- we had no issues navigating winding mountain roads. All the jealous stares you get from people is a bonus and great conversation starter!

We rented the Love Van for a quick, no-hassle, weekend camping trip at a state park. It was awesome! Hestia was super communicative and it was clear from the start that she enjoys working with folks to make their trip specialized to their needs. We have a pup and she even left a treat for him! The van is set up with everything you need and Hestia threw in some extra treats for us too. The set up in the back has a camp stove and all accessories needed for cooking, a refrigerator drawer, and a pump sink.

My friend and I rented this van for 3 nights and it was great!! Everything we needed was there. There was more space than I expected for sleeping too. I kept my suitcase in between our feet while sleeping and we felt like we had plenty of room! It was chilly at night but with enough blankets (which were provided) we were fine. There were curtains to cover all angles. It ran well with no mechanical issues which is always a huge win. Hestia was a wonderful host! She mentioned some additions she’ll be making to the van too (unfortunately not quite ready when we went yet but still great)! She offered many suggestions for things to do and places to stay. We could tell she really wanted us to have a fun time! Everything is as she describes. All around great experience for our first time renting from Outdoorsy!
