Simply marvelous. Wanna get away from everything, slow it alll down and just be with your friends and family? Wanna experience the sheer mesmerizing beauty of California? We drove around for 5 glorious days in "Buttercup" - real name "Hale Pua" and we all fell deeply in love with her. My 70 something mom, my husband and I and my two teenage daughters. Such a comfy ride, everyone gets a brilliant v…

We literally had the best time of our lives! This was an adventure that we'd meant to take for many years, and it was very worth the wait! We drove up along the coast to wine country and had an amazing time camping along the way there and back right alongside beaches and animal preserves. It was magical!! We can't wait to take another trip again in the future, and want to make it a tradition now, it was such an amazing experience :)

We had the best time in Hale Pua and would highly recommend renting from Bill. He knows these beautiful machines so well and has put heart and soul into each van. We felt like we were driving a Cadillac up the coast. Hale Pua with the Subaru engine took the hills like it was nothing. We cooked in the van with ease with everything they provided and found lots of adventures along the way. If you're looking for a great experience in a VW Van VW Surfari is the right way to go. Now we are on the hunt for our own Hale Pua to cruise around the country in.

Bill was really cool, and he gave a great tutorial on everything I needed to know prior to my departure up the 101 and into Big Sur. The Vanagon ran perfectly and it definitely gets a lot of looks and will certainly start a lot conversat…
