Car was impeccable! Nathaniel was very kind and attentive. Saved our trip! With all the car rental companies having no cars it was great to find a car to drive while on vacation. It is a little expensive, but worth it to have a comfortable car to drive. Thanks to Nathaniel!
Michael was so easy to work with and he reached out to us whenever we texted him. Excellent customer service and communication skills. It was easier than renting from a rental agency!! Will do it again. Thank you for a wonderful experience!!
Great car for a good price. This was my first time using Turo and there were a few fees that were unexpected such as the parking ticket to pick up the vehicle ($15) and cleaning costs of car wash and vacuum ($15). But overall a great experience and would recommend this car for others.
This is an absolutely perfect vehicle to rent when visiting Kauai! It is a top of the line Nissan SUV. Lots of room for luggage and storage. The host communicated with me very well through the whole process. The car will be waiting at the airport when you arrive with the inside and outside cleaned spotless! I thought I was driving a brand new car at times! I really liked the features on the vehicle, specifically the power lift gate that allows you to move your foot under the bumper to open it when your hands are full of luggage or toddlers. The sound system in the vehicle is also great and it has bluetooth capability to sync up your smart phone. The vehicle provided a smooth quite ride with great A/C and the seats are very comfortable. I highly recommend renting this vehicle if you visit the island. When I go back I will definitely be checking on its availability! I also want to say thanks again to the host for being so courteous and quick to respond to any of my concerns. We had a great trip!
If you luck out, you get Jessica’s suv. It’s a 2012 Nissan SUV in fabulous working order. Drove great. Super easy pickup in the airport short term parking. Found it quick and soon found goodies/snacks inside to welcome us. Jessica even left 6 bucks to reimburse our parking fee. Rig came with beach gear. High end beach gear. We would have not pursued beach as much were it not for those Tommy Bahama chairs and boogie boards. What a great idea to add in the package. Plus, gear packed in nicely with one long bungee cord. Way to go Jessica! This was way better than renting the usual rental car. Owner was accessible and helped get the car 3 hours early and 2 hours late on the drop off. Super clean as well. Can’t say enough. 6 stars.
Pasty &Bruce were the best host ever. It was the first time we try Turo since we couldn’t find any car available from regular car rental companies in Kauai. Easy pick up at the hotel and drop off at the airport. The car was in excellent condition and perfect for getting my family around, enjoying the beautiful nature in Hawaii. This host is very friendly, flexible, and professional. I would highly recommend renting from Pasty if you visit Kauai Hawaii. ;D
First time using Turo and Danielle made the rental very easy. Car is nice and well maintained. Great alternative to rental car companies and ability to pick up at airport a huge plus.
Renting a car through Turo was easy. Susana’s Nissan Rogue 2021 was clean and wonderful touring the island of Kauai!
The car was clean and got us where we wanted to go. We had a little issue with the key fob (the battery might have to be replaced) but managed to figure it out by using the manual key that was detachable from the key fob. Tomas did offer to meet and exchange keys but we just didn’t have the time with all of our planned activities. Overall, the price is reasonable, especially when everyone is trying to take advantage of the car shortage during this pandemic, Tomas and his wife are very nice and communicative. No issues with the car except for the key fob that I had mentioned. We would rent from them again.
THIS IS THE ONE! You will not regret it! Ester was amazing. She worked with us through the whole southwest fiasco. (We were so grateful we did not go through a car rental and loose our reservation! ) The car was EMACULATE! Like it just rolled off an assembly line. 100% smoke free. She had cool water and treats waiting for us. It was easy to find at the airport and only cost 3$ to get out. We rented it for a week so we could explore the island. We stayed in Kaapa and went south 3 times and north 2. Drove all the way to Ke'e Beach and past Waimea canyon. We explored! We filled it up about 1 1/2 times. Great gas milage. Easy to use navigation system, which we used a lot. We LOVED the extra large sunroof. Sooo much better than convertible. When we opened it we could see everything around us and enjoy the air. But when a sudden burst of rain came down(which it does often) it was super fast and easy to close. Unlike the convertibles we saw parking on the side of the road desperately trying to get the top up. We loved that we had the option to close the top and still see out and use a/c and it still felt open and we could see all of the beauty. We also liked the option to close the roof and save ourselves from sunburn after hours of snorkeling. We loved all the room in the car which enabled us to pack up any gear we might need for whatever we came across that we wanted to do. Snorkel gear, beach chairs, beach bags, hiking gear, umbrella's, cooler etc.... Really this car was perfect. Ester was perfect. It made our trip perfect. This was our first time using Turo and we are so glad we did. I cannot recommend this enough! Book it! You won't regret it! Aloha!
Danielle’s 2021 Rogue was a fun car to drive. Danielle included a usb cable for my iPhone and so it was easy to use the embedded Apple Car Play app. Danielle was very accommodating when I asked to extend our rental days. I will definitely check with her again the next time we are back on island. Mahalo Danielle!
This was my first time using Turo and it was a blessing to have Trisha be the first host I rented from. She was so easygoing, accommodating and friendly. I’d recommended anyone rent from her. The Xterra worked out perfectly and is a great SUV for getting around the island. I’ll be back !
Great car for going anywhere on Kauai that doesn't require 4 WD! We drove it to Haena, up to the end of the paved road at Waimea Canyon and lots of places in between. Patsy had suggestions for hiking and provided a great guidebook to help us decide what to do. Definitely will rent from Patsy again!
Our first experience with Turo was excellent. Our communication with Chuck was excellent. The pick up and drop off were seamless. The vehicle was in perfect condition and easy to drive. Truly a better experience than a typical rental car. We added a cooler to our rental. Good for cold drinks but didn’t hold ice well so we were reluctant to use for food that could spoil. Chuck provided us with superb recommendations for his favorite places to eat, trails and beaches. Great to have a local’s list of suggestions to add you our favorite spots. We would definitely rent from Charles again for our future trips. Great experience!!
The 2012 Xterra was in great shape--even better than we had on a current year rental car from a rental company on one of the other islands. Jessica included some very appreciated welcoming extras such as leis, candy snacks, masks, chairs, boogey boards, beach chairs, and an umbrella. We used them all and this made for a very wonderful package that greeted us when we arrived. She was also very responsive to questions we had and even recommended activities that we were interested in. I would recommend Jessica to all who might visit Kauai.
The Nissan SUV was perfect for our visit to Kauai. It was easy to locate it as well as drop it off at the airport parking lot. Jenna communicated with us via texting in a timely manner. The driving was fun even with the potholes in Kauai!
Super smooth delivery & pick up process. The car was really easy to drive and got great gas mileage. It was nice that it was compact since most of the parking spots on the island are small. Would definitely rent again!
My first booking with Turo as all the rental companies were sold out. It was so easy to book, check-in and check-out. Esther was very responsive throughout. The car was parked conveniently for us to pick up. Esther provided clear instructions. The car was in an excellent condition and very well cleaned for us. Esther was kind to leave a couple of water bottles in the car, also a coupon for shaved ice! The car was spacious for our family of 4 to hold all the luggage and an infant stroller. The lane departure assist was very useful when driving along the scenic roads. Overall, we had a great experience with the car!
Patsy’s Nissan Kicks was the answer to our prayers on our honeymoon in Kauai! Every rental car agency was booked, so we were so grateful to find out about Turo last minute. Patsy and her husband Bruce could not have been more accommodating with drop off and pick up, being super flexible with both, and even gave us a bottle of champagne and Pellegrino! This car took us exactly where we wanted to go, was awesome on gas mileage and spotless inside so could not have asked for more. Honestly we would book with Patsy and Bruce before a car agency next time!
I had a great experience renting from Jenna. The vehicle was ready for me as scheduled, freshly cleaned, and in great shape. Jenna was quick to respond to messages and happy to offer help or answer any questions about the island if needed. Highly recommended!
The host was great, gave awesome advice, and was very accommodating. The car was beautiful, every aspect of it was above my expectations. An amazing time with an amazing car, and amazing people. Very happy with my experience and would be happy to recommend to anyone as well as doing it again myself soon.
Tricia was prompt when meeting us to pick up our car. The total experience was wonderful. Car was in excellent condition and clean.
This car was great!! Very comfortable and spacious, clean, and perfect for cruising the island. The audio system has both Bluetooth and Apple CarPlay, which was handy for trips.
Susana was great! The car was new, clean, and in great shape. We had a blast and Susana was exceedingly easy to work with. Highly recommend!
Susana was wonderful! Very clean car exactly as described, and communicating with her was a breeze. She even provided some additional tips about things to do around the island. Hopefully Susana’s car is available next time I’m in Kauai!
Anaha was super friendly! He gave us lots of great pointers on places to visit and how to handle the car for returning (don't forget quarters for the vacuum 😉). The car was clean, comfortable, and ran great. Decent amount of cargo space for our bags. The perfect car for our trip!
Craig was quick in response, thorough and very reliable. I needed a vehicle with a quick turnaround due to an unpleasant experience with another Turo vehicle, and Craig provided earlier than requested. Very clean Rogue and a joy to drive! Great space for individual, couple, or family…has backseat shades, panoramic sunroof, ample storage and legroom. Highly recommend Craig and his 2021 Nissan Rogue!
Good condition, reliable car. We are a family of 7 and it worked out great. Highly recommended.
Car was clean and worked well. Nice inventory to choose from. My first experience with Turo and it was good. Wasn't expecting all the picture process at front and back end, but it worked out. Melvin runs a good shop.
Nate was responsive to all of our calls and txt messages. We would definitely rent from him again when on the island.
Comfortable, clean car. Plenty of space for two people but can easily accommodate 5. Check in check out was a breeze.
David was so great at communicating! The car got to the airport a little bit early (since we landed a bit early) and it was spotless, looked like a brand new car! Keys were in the car that was right across from baggage claim, ready to go! Thanks!
Very easy and convenient. Car is a bit older with expected wear but comfortable, no major issues. Great communication!
Susan thank you for the use of your nice new car. We had a great time exploring the coast of Kauai.
Craig was super friendly and his car was excellent for four friends to enjoy a vacation together. We had a great time!
Casey was great to work with and his car is even better than the photos portray. The car also gets about 35 mpg. We will definitely work with Casey again when we return to Kauai!
We had an amazing experience with both Trisha and her Xterra! We highly recommend renting with her!!
Austin was great! He was there to answer any questions right away and the car worked great for our trip! Thanks!
we really enjoyed our car rental! the car was amazing and charles did also a great job. it was a pleasure for us and we definitely recommend a rental with charles. we‘ll come back!
Easy pickup and return using the airport public parking lot. Yen and Alex are friendly, good and responsive communication. Vehicle in good shape, adaptive cruise control nice for maintaining pace and distance. Thank you both!
Ashlee was outstanding and very accommodating. Elie was great when making the initial reservation. We hope to use Turo again.
Damien is a good host, very responsive. Was flexible with changes we made. Armada is good, can take up to 8 passengers and we had kids in the 3rd row. The vehicle turn radius is bit wide, but it was not a big issue. Overall a great trip in Kauai. MAHALO
This was a really comfortable ride for a larger family. The third row worked great!
Ehsan was prompt, friendly and informative. The vehicle was as expected/pictured. This was my first time using Turo and was a pleasant experience.
