The Ballard ohana rents out a variety of baby equipment any traveling family may need

Traveling with an infant or toddler can be tough, not to mention the added luggage and baggage fees. As parents, North Shore residents Cara and Bill Ballard saw a business opportunity, and thus was born Paradise Baby Co. earlier this year. It’s an islandwide service that rents out baby equipment along with other items a traveling family may need.

“We work out of our home, and our goal is to make traveling with kids or having them visit easy and enjoyable,” says Carla. “We rent top-of-the-line cribs, strollers, toys, high-chairs, beach gear and lots of other gear to families visiting the island.

“As a parent myself, I know that traveling with children is not always easy,” she adds, noting that by renting from Paradise Baby Co., traveling families eliminate the hassle of bringing everything with them as well as dealing with baggage fees.

All equipment is maintained in excellent condition and sanitized prior to delivery. The Ballards upgrade and add to their line of baby equipment constantly to provide the best for their customers.

“The majority of our business is from tourists and traveling families visiting the island,” Cara states. “Depending on where they’re staying, what they rent changes. If a family is staying on the North Shore, they might get bikes with child carriers for the bike path. Kahala vacation rentals always want a hiking backpack to hike Diamond Head. BOB jogging strollers are big in Waikiki to run the parks.

“And we work with many of the real estate agents and rental companies on the island servicing their customers,” she says. “Weddings have been good as well, with lots of families visiting Oahu for them. We have been really happy to assist locals when they have grandchildren, relatives and friends visiting them.”

Paradise Baby Co. rentals range from $15 to $200. A minimum order of $100 is required for all rental items to be delivered, set up and picked up free of charge.

“Our No. 1 priority at Paradise Baby Co. is to provide great service to our customers. Everything about our service is first class, and we intend to only get better at what we do!”
