Dave is all you need for camping, he has all the equipment. I’ve just explained him my plans in Kauai and together with him we’ve scheduled the whole week. He is quite responsive and very flexible for pick up times, extremely helpful for any kind of questions; you will feel like meeting a friend that you already know. I’d strongly recommend!
Dave was awesome. He has all the equipment that you could possibly need to have a great time hiking to and camping in Kalalau. Just like other reviewers said, he gave us tips and a map with a secret campsite and other things to check out, as well as answered all the questions I had about the hike when we met him to pick up our gear. He genuinely cared about making sure we had a great experience and was very friendly. We would rent camp gear from him again or even try staying with him if we go back to Kauai.
We were happy with the gear and the instructions. Sometimes Chris was difficult to get hold of, but he did his best to make up for it. And a trip he organised for us was a highlight of our stay in Kauai.
Michal you are so funny! The free bottle of wine and the two free activities to the turtle cave and queens bath was compensation for not calling you back right away......you are not supposed to mention that "Chris was difficult to get hold of," SO EVERYONE ON airbnb can read it.....When you come back to Kauai you have to take me on some adventures! LOL
Chris was awesome! We met him and he gave us a brief explanation of where we were going, how to get there and what to pack. Good advices and sent us to the best spot ever!!! He was flexible about us coming back a day later when we had no reception to confirm the date. He was nice patient and good guide!!! I definitely recommend the kalalau experience and listen to his advice!! Thank you so much
We had a great stay in Kauai thanks to Chris' advice and gear. We spent 3 nights backpacking on the Na Pali coast. Chris recommended a place to camp and things to see when we got to Kalalau valley. All of the gear was clean and looked barely used. The waterproof tent kept us dry even though it rained every night. If we ever plan to camp in kauai again, we would definitely plan to Airbnb with Chris again.
Chris was great, we rented our camping equipment from him and he tailored it to our needs after we changed locations. He was helpful with information about which campground to camp at and he was flexible with pick up and drop off times. I'd recommend renting from him.

About the Host, Dave

The best location to Camp on Kauai!. From the beginning of the trail to the beach is approx 13 miles and will take the average hiker 8 hours. It is recommended to stay a minimum of 3 night or longer.HI 96746
Second best location on Kauai. This is very much forest camping, with lots of hiking adventures and things to do. If you do not think you have the ability to hike to Kalalau then this is the place.Hawaii
If the weather takes a turn for the worst at Waimea, then you can come here and get naked. Polihale is the 4th driest spot in the world and is approx 1 hr drive from Waimea.Hawaii
