Kaleo and his partner Sam have built a first rate auto rental business on the Big Island. As the airport won’t allow Turo cars to be parked at the airport, they actually come and pick you up in person. We were picked up promptly within minutes after we had our luggage and stood on the curb. Bravo. The car itself was not the most attractive, as it would cost more to repaint than the car is worth. But mechanically, the car was first rate. And the benefits to be had from driving a car with faded and bubbled paint are innumerable, but let me try: * The folks driving around in the flashy red jeeps and convertibles are vandalism bait. You see shattered windshields and glass in remote parking areas for places like Green Sand Beach parking lot and Black Sands Beach, plus many more. I think this car looks more like a local’s than a visitor’s, and while that is no guarantee of safety if you leave expensive items on the seat, I believe it reduces your risk substantially. * A flashy car is police bait. No reason to be stopped unnecessarily for a license check or harassment, as cops on the island are known to do. Best of all, the car had fantastic gas mileage. We circled the entire island with many off the trek visitations on less than a tank and a half of gas, and it’s a small tank. Total gas bill for nine days was under $65. No kidding. Parking in many places is limited. This small Prius could parallel parked in the tiniest of spots without difficulty. It was also nice on the narrow single lane roads when the big trucks had to pull off on the side to pass. Our tires never lost contact with the paved road surface, but not so with many of the folks in the other lane of traffic. I am not one to lavish praise, but in this case, it was deserved. You’ll get a sound and practical car at a bargain price when you rent this Prius from Kaleo. And the drop off at his lot near the airport was first rate, too. We were there in minutes. Both Sam and Kaleo are positive, upbeat ambassadors for the island and were quick to offer ideas and suggestions regarding our itinerary, too, which proved valuable. I’ve had some bad experiences with Turo car owners and some great ones. This experience rates at the top of the list and makes the old days at the car rental counter in Kona a welcome relic of the past.

Good communication, pleasant, professional and reasonable to deal with - car was as listed and easy to drive. Thank you for a good trip.

My wife and I have been visiting the Islands for more than 15 years and have used almost every rental car company working in the Islands. We have used Turo for the last four trips and have saved money and generally been satisfied with our cars and the folks offering them. This time was the best yet. We extended our trip and found Kea and the Turo organization accommodating and helpful even when I messed up on making my call within the time period required. Super nice people and again bes price for their car. We were very satisfied and will be back!
Ben R.- May 5, 2022
Kea was very responsive and detailed in his instructions, which made the pickup and drop off very smooth! The car was comfortable with the latest features to help us get around the island. I would use his car service when I come to Kona again!

Kelsie was easy to work with! Responded to all my inquiries ! For a first time Turo renter - this was a good experience! The car is beautiful, easy to ride and the color was a bonus ! The pickup and return was easy. Do know that when picking up a Turo car it should be closest to where you are staying ( I didn’t know this tidbit)

Julia was the best!! She was extremely accommodating and was always a helping hand. We had to add some days to our trip. We couldn’t get the car the day we had to leave, so she kindly took us to the airport. This vehicle is great! We traveled to the other side of the island and back. Super easy to get around in, tons of space and really comfortable. 100% recommend. Thanks Julia!
