Very accommodating and polite Jenny is an awesome person with a great car. Her new car is a hybrid so it helps with the Hawaii gas prices. I give my experience a true thumbs up.

This car was wonderful - super clean, easy pick up/drop off at the airport, and the hybrid gives you great mileage (helpful with Hawaii’s more expensive gas prices!). I would definitely book this car again!

This was our first time using Turo, and I may never use a rental agency again. It was so easy and Kalena and Jessica were extremely responsive and helpful. The car was just as advertised, very clean and no issues.

We had a fun time in Big Island! Amy and her son were such great hosts! Our car was filled with masks, wipes and sanitizers, very clean interior, we got a pretty new car, so it ran really well, communication was great, no problems, very professional. We definitely will rent a car from her again when we come back. Thank you 😊

Haunani was a stellar host! She was very responsive and the car was clean and drove great! More room than I expected for luggage and it was perfect for our family. I was able to pick up the car off-site about a 5 minute drive from the airport and drop off in the same place. I will definitely rent from Haunani again in the future. Thank you for helping us have a great vacation.

Kalena and partner are true super host! They go above and beyond to make sure we have an enjoyable experience. In the midst of renting, I lost the remote key. Our hotel is half an hour away from where they live. After hearing my contact for help, they drove all the way to my hotel and delivered the key within one hour! We are profoundly grateful. The car is in a perfect condition. It’s convenient to pick up at the Airpot and return to the airport. The whole experience is flawless and I will do it again next time I am at Big Island.

The car was brand new, spotless and a pleasure to drive. Mahikenani was easy to communicate with. My only suggestion would be to provide a bit more details as to the pickup and dropoff location as our Lyft drivers had a lot of trouble finding the location in an industrial park. Overall, a great experience and much better than using a rental car agency.

Everything about this rental went very smoothly. This was our first trip to the Big Island and it was made all the easier by having a clean, reliable vehicle to explore with ready for us the moment we stepped off the plane. They even suggested tons of cool spots for us to check out during our stay. Next time we come through to visit, we’ll definitely hit them up again!

Her car is very cute and comfy with plenty of space also. 100/10 experience!

Car was in excellent shape. It’s a great car to drive around the island with and has good gas mileage. Mahikenani was very accommodating and easy to communicate with. She allowed us to add on the drop off and go at airport last minute (the afternoon the rental ended). I would recommend to anyone visiting Kauai.

Great car and even better owner. We rented this car for a week on the big island and it was awesome. Not only was the car new, easy to drive and maneuver but it came with a super friendly and accommodating owner. He gave us all kinds of recommendations from snorkeling spots to restaurant recommendations. Best part is that we felt we could trust him from the very first minute.

5 stars plus plus plus and beyond! We definitely recommend Kalena and Jessica to everyone and will save their info for our next visit! They are the nicest and kindest host on Turo. They respond quickly and were very helpful with any questions and concerns especially as a first time car renter on Turo, They sent us recommendations of places, restaurants, things to do in the island. They even were so kind enough to let us pickup the car earlier so we could start our vacation right away! And when it was time to drop off the car, Kalena volunteered to pick it up from where we were staying at so we didn’t have to walk or Uber back to our rental place! How awesome and kind was that! The car was clean, reliable, easy to drive around and the gas mileage can’t be beat! We didn’t have a problem driving around the big island at all. They even went above and beyond and had a phone holder and usb car charger hook up in the car, sooo convenient! My 8 and 6 year old we’re very happy and said this is the best vacation ever! We can’t thank you enough Kalena and Jessica!!
