My host is a real life concierge. He provided extra amenities to make sure you are ready for Big Island's weather and any outdoor activities you are ready to accomplish on your vacation trip to the Big Island. He is a great communicator and trustworthy host through TURO. I highly recommend his services and vehicle if you need a rental on the Big Island. His vehicle made me and family feel safe at all times and was tough & big enough to handle any weather condition the Big Island of Hawaii was ready to present itself. Thanks, James.

Gustavo is the easiest host to work with. He represents the Aloha spirit and is so friendly. He is very flexible and punctual. My girlfriend and I rented from him and when we first met him, he had a giant smile and gave us snorkel gear to go along with our trip. He's located right near the airport so it was super convenient. It was a $6 Uber ride from the airport to his house where the car is located. When we returned the car, he even gave us a lift to the airport. I highly recommend renting from Gustavo. The experience was way better than any rental car agency we've used. We rented his Range Rover which worked so well for us. The all wheel drive felt great all over the island. For an SUV with all wheel drive, it still gets great gas mileage.

Wow! Easily the best car rental experience I have ever had and I travel a lot. Kristin's communication was terrific. She told us exactly were the car was located in the lot. You walk right out to the car, no waiting, no paper work. We needed to extend before the trip and she was easy to communicate with about that as well. I will definitely use her for our next visit and have already passed her name on to my daughter for her future visitors.
