A trip to Maui generally means you’re doing something right… whether you’re here to get married, celebrate a loved one’s birthday, heighten your skills during a yoga retreat or are simply here to explore the sights and sounds of paradise on a tropical island, a Maui vacation is full of everything you need to ensure well-deserved relaxation, rejuvenation, beauty and bliss.
Luxury isn’t a new concept on Maui – from world class spas to 5 star beachfront resorts to handcrafted meals from some of the best chefs in the world, there are a million ways to treat yourself on the Valley Isle. Something that most people don’t consider, however, is the vehicle they’ll be driving to see the sights. While minivans, SUVs and four door cars are convenient for carting around weeks worth of luggage, beach gear, seventeen kinds of shave ice and the kiddos, our new favorite suggestion for the splurge-inclined visitor is a full day rental from Maui Roadsters, who offer a fleet of gorgeous 1957 Porsche 356 Speedster Convertible reproductions for 4 and 12 hour rentals.
If you’ve always dreamed of channeling your inner James Bond and cruising along postcard-worthy scenic roads, wind in your hair, top down, the Pacific in your rear view mirror, Maui is the perfect opportunity to live the dream. These cars are beautifully maintained and reliable, ideal for driving the winding roads along the Road to Hana, the stretch of highway north of Kapalua and around to Wailuku, and Upcountry areas of Makawao, Kula and Ulupalakua to take in the rolling hills, lush gardens and panoramic views of Maui.
Choose a day of your vacation and plan an adventure that’s equal in beauty to the car you’ll be taking along for the ride. How many times do you have the opportunity to drive a classic Porsche convertible in Hawaii, after all?!
Maui Roadsters is a great way to treat yourself to a unique and thrilling experience that goes above and beyond a fancy dinner and couples massage. All cars seat two people, are manual transmission and include unlimited miles. From personal experience, I can say that I’ve never had so much fun driving a car in my life. Getting back into my Toyota Camry was the most challenging part of the experience, and owners Leah and Chris are extremely helpful, friendly and reliable.
