We loved everything about this rental. The car is great and the host Katia is amazing. She went above and beyond to make our little vacation even more pleasant and stressful. She comes highly recommended and anyone would be lucky to have her as their host when renting a car on Turo. Thanks for everything Katia, you are the best!

I used the Turo shared vehicle service for the first time and have been super impressed by the concept and power of the app. Most importantly, I had an awesome experience before and during the car sharing period with the host Mahikenani Tripp-Gouveia. She arranged for delivering the car to the location and pick up from a location and made the handover takeover process very seamless. She was very prompt in accommodating my requests and did the best possible arrangements to help us enjoy our vacation. I would highly recommend car sharing with Mahikenani.

This was my first TURO experience and I couldn't be happier. This was a great family to work with and, with no commercial rental options, we felt absolutely spoiled to have access to this vehicle. I would rent through TURO again... especially if it is with these same wonderful owners. Awesome experience!!!

My husband and I had a wonderful experience driving around Hawaii in this Jeep! Way better than going through a rental company. Donald was super helpful and easy to contact. Having a Jeep made our trip way more fun and adventurous and this one was very nice. 10/10 would recommend.

Really enjoyed exploring the Big Island in Anna's brand new Jeep. The pickup and dropoff were effortless. The Jeep was handed to us clean and with beach gears loaded. Anna was very responsive to all my questions and requests throughout the trip and also gave me great tips on where to go. The Jeep drove great with its new A/T tires (not the regular road tires you'll find on the Jeeps from rental companies). We were able to summit Mauna Kea, go down to Waipio Valley and visit green sand beach without any issues (We did ask for Anna's prior permission for driving the 4x4 only roads).

Ruby is your absolutely perfect car for the Island. Clean and well kept with comfy leather seats, tons of cargo room, great A/C (a must!), a sun roof and all the gadgets you need. Plus you can find her in any parking lot due to her nice red paint. And maybe best of all, you can pass for a local and laugh at all the tourists in their brand new Jeep Wrangler rentals. Plus Ed was very helpful and responsive. We will definitely be renting Ruby again the next time we’re on the Big Island.

Our trip was great. We have used Turo for several vacations and Stacey has been the BEST we have experienced. Very communicative, great recommendations.. very easy pick up and drop off. Couldn’t be happier with our experience. The Jeep was just what we needed. Easy to drive. Fit right in and made getting around easy. Makes me want a Jeep again.

Fantastic Race's Jeep was fantastic! This was our first TURO rental and with the rental car situation in hawaii right now being bad this was a life saver of an app! Pick up/drop off was easy and having a 4WD for our trip in the big island of Hawai'i was great! We drove all over the island and were able to access roads you needed a 4WD for. The owner was SUPER amazing and nice too. We talked to her for a bit when we returned our car and will 100% book with her again when we come back to Kona! I'd give this 1000000 stars if I could.

I got a brand new car with only 460 miles on the odometer. This is the best car rental experience I have ever had. I had a great time driving this brand new car. The host is very nice. She gave me choices of either picking up/dropping off the care from her residence or the airport. She is very prompt in answering all my questions. She made this my rental experience easy and smooth.

Ryan has been super super helpful throughout our trip! Picking up the car is super convenient and the car is in great condition. It can bring you to most of the destination you would like to go in the big island including Maura Kea and Wapio valley. Ryan even gave us a ride to the airport after we dropped off the car. I strongly recommend renting Jeep’s with Ryan!
