I would recommend this car rental!!! The convenience of pick up and return at the airport was easy and much quicker than a rental car agency. Patricia was quick to respond to communication and nice to deal with. The car even had beach chairs in the trunk...added perk! Thanks Patricia for your car rental service and communication.

Anwar was a pleasure to rent from. He is a great communicator, nice person and very easy to work with. It was great not having to wait in a line to rent a car at Lihue airport and being able to pick it up and return it directly saving easliy over an hour of time. Anwar's Jeep is clean, spacious and fun to drive . I would highly recommend renting Anwar's Jeep to everyone visitng beuatiful Kauai!

Jennifer was wonderful and her car fit our family perfectly. She picked us up curbside at the airport and had us drop her off at her office building, which is just 2 or 3 minutes from the airport, and then we were on our way! This was my first experience with Turo, so I didn't know what to expect, but it was affordable, convenient, and NO LINES at a rental car location; so easy! Jennifer was available for any questions we had, either about the car or about what to do on the island. She was prompt and responsive. When we returned the car, we met her at her work and she dropped us at the airport. I highly recommend using Jennifer and her Rogue if you're considering Turo for your car rental on Kauai! I can't say enough about what a great experience it was for us. 5 stars!

Wonderful to have an alternative way to get a car rental! Everything was perfect 😊 Much easier than a rental agency since there were no lines or anyone trying to up-sell you. Paula was great with communication too!

Anwar helped make our trip to Kauai an amazing one. Great communicator. Easy pickup and drop off (soooo much easier than rental car). He was flexible with times, and quick to accommodate. I lost he gas cap and had the strap on the door break, but he took it in stride, was super kind and understanding, and wouldn't even let me pay for it. I could go on. Using a car from Anwar was about as good as it gets!

Though the PT cruiser broke down on our second day, Nathan was on hand and able to help us out by dealing with the towing company and giving us a ride to the airport to rent another car. It wasn’t the most ideal situation but it was made a lot easier and went smoothly thanks to Nathan. I appreciate his help in all of this and would gladly rent (another car) from him again.

This was the absolute slickest car rental ever! Melvin keeps his car spotless and in excellent working condition. This couldn’t have been a better experience.

Rob was great! He gave very clear instructions on pick up and return and was extremely easy to communicate with. I would definitely recommend anyone who needs to rent a vehicle to rent if from Rob in Kauai!

If you ever get the chance to visit Kauai, definitely do it! If you get the chance to rent a car from leeda... DO IT! She was the best person to rent from, made the trip super easy with adjusting to our changing time schedules and everything. Can’t say enough, trip of a lifetime.

Wow. Melvin was an awesome host. He was super accommodating with high level of communication. He was always there to answer any question that i had about the rental and showed extreme professionalism. The truck was impeccably clean and very well maintained. This trip wouldn’t have been the same without this awesome vehicle and the support of our host Melvin. In the spirit of aloha he even went out of his way to give me a ride back to my gate. In conclusion i highly recommended using Melvin and I plan to rent his F150 truck again when i return to the beautiful island of Kauai. P.S. When traveling in Kauai, there is no better vehicle than a truck, especially renting one from a local. It felt good giving my money to a local person rather than some corporate company like enterprise, budget, dollar, etc. Our friend who was on the trip with us rented from a budget and all he got was red tape, extra charges, fees, etc. I highly recommend using Turo when traveling to Kauai. Especially if you can score an awesome host like Melvin. Mahalo!!!!

Nice classic Jeep for exploring Kaua’i that sets you apart from the rental car white Wrangler. Awesome host and great communication
Shane S. - February 4, 2018
Chrysler PT Cruiser 2006
Nathan made everything easy for us. With Nathan it was more like borrowing a friend's car than the standard rental car hassle. Pickup and return was quick and easy. We felt more like locals than tourists in Nathan's PT Cruiser and even received "shakas" from true locals. We loved the PT Cruiser, but as Nathan states in his description, the car is lower than a Jeep so don't plan on those out of the way beaches or trail heads. Thanks, Nathan!
Dick S. - February 3, 2018
Jeep Wrangler 2014
Perfect Jeep to rent on Kauai. Unique style with the NX trektop. Rooftop is easily foldable. Pickup and return were easy at about 15 minutes from LIH (18$ for a taxi). Nice features (USB input, 4 doors, AWD).

Toyota RAV4 2008
This was the first time renting a vehicle through Turo and we had a five star experience! First, communication with Meagan was GREAT prior, during our stay on Kauai, and after dropping off the Toyota Rav at Lihue Airport. Meagan made it very convenient by driving her car to meet us at the airport on time upon arrival. She greeted us with her lovely smile with her Aloha spirit, showing us around the Rav and making us aware of important points. The car was very clean, perfect for 2 adults and 2 kids. She also lent us a bodyboard. During our stay, she answered my texts for recomendations where the kids may enjoy. The car ran well during our stay. Prior to leaving to the airport, we vacuumed the car and ran it through a car wash, even though she said it wasn't necessary. Meagan also made the drop off process easy and flawless. I highly recommend visitors who are headed to Kauai to rent cars from Meagan. I find her to be very down to earth, honest, & a very good communicator that will make you feel very comfortable to contact her anytime with questions; about her car or finding places on beautiful Kauai. Once again, thank you for all your hospitality Meagan! Aloha, wallyi

The truck was perfect for our weekend trip to Kauai. Our plan to rent a kayak & explore the Na Pali Coast was deferred because of the weather (nothing to do with this Rental). Highly recommend this truck & Melvin for future rentals.

The Jeep is in good condition and has some nice extras: * a smart phone holder on the windshield makes navigation easier * a USB adapter to charge our devices * optional beach chairs, umbrella, and cooler (which we didn't get to use because the weather was not very good on North Kauai (Hanalei) Ilyas is a excellent communicator and let us know and the details we needed in advance I would be happy to rent from him again

Lam is a great guy. His car was super reliable and he was prompt when responding. He drove my wife and me to the airport too. He treated us with great respect and we will absolutely rent another car from him on our next trip to Kauai. The car was perfect for us. We drove it all over the island - always making sure not to use the vehicle on roads made for 4wd. The radio works great and the car is very fuel efficient.
Pablo V. - February 13, 2018

Ashley was great with communicating how to pick up and drop off the car, which was super easy! m She also put extra towels and a jug of water as she knew we would be hiking the often muddy Kauai trails! They turned out to be very useful. I would definitely rent from her again! Mahalo!

I was planning my trip to Kauai And have used Turo On Oahu before when I read Melvin’s reviews he seems very cool and down to earth and had a nice truck. He was very flexible with time and schedule pick up drop off also responded to my text very fast about the trucks availability. The truck ran like a charm ,mileage wasn’t bad at all and the car was very clean in and out. We would definitely rent for Melvin again he made the trip very wonderful and it was super fun to have a truck on the island. Aloha and Mahalo Melvin and Turo Micah P.

It’s quite easy to drop in and out Lihue airport as well. Thanks Addi for making our Hawaii trip a great one!

Nissan Leaf 2012
My second time renting from Justin. This car had a shorter range than the first which had I known that was a thing I would have chosen more appropriately for our trip. I have one gripe about the maintenance of charging stations we visited, Wal-Mart and the one at the mall in lihue were both not working. That put a damper in our first days itinerary given the shorter range on this vehicle and the fact that we were staying in Princeville. Justin was quick to come up with another option. He was very helpful.
Alysia M. - October 27, 2017

Rob provided excellent service that went above and beyond what I would have expected as a first time Turo renter. He provided a ton of helpful information before and during our trip, loaned us perks like a cooler, boogie boards, beach umbrella and guidebook, and his car was clean, well cared for, and easy to pick up and drop off. He even welcomed us with a plumeria lei which made the car smell wonderful. We would highly recommend renting from Rob and borrowing his vehicle for your trip!
Angela K. - April 20, 2018

Look no further if you are planning on being on Kauai. Not only was Adam flexible with our flight times, but the F150 was parked within steps of the terminal, like it was my own truck. He even left a few bucks in the console to take care of the airport parking fee! As we were driving out of the airport to our VRBO rental, we rolled the windows down and heard 'nice truck' from a driver waiting for the was Adam! We all had a laugh...what a fantastic way to start our trip. Adam was an absolute pleasure- he is proactive about communicating (which was good on vacation), very reasonable and responsive. 10/10, 5 star experience, 2 thumbs way up!

Lam was jovial and professional and his car was brand new, clean, and in excellent working condition! As soon as we landed and contacted him, he came to meet us almost immediately at the pre-discussed location. And when we had to cut short our stay in Hawaii he was completely understanding. I was thrilled to do business with him and I encourage anyone visiting Kauai in need of a car to hit him up! Thanks again, Lam!
Akshay B. - April 10, 2018

Great little car for an unpretentious Kauai adventure. Pickup and drop off were easy and stress free. Not the flashiest car in the island, but it does what it does very well. The beach chairs and umbrella were also appreciated.

Gary H. - April 2, 2018
Toyota Yaris 2008
Though this small Yaris had only a basic functions (no power window, no automatic lock system etc.), it was good enough to go around the island. The communication, pick up & return were very smooth. I found that the additional airport pick up fee for the parking lot was much more expensive than I was being mentioned by the owner, so it’s better you clarify with the owner exactly how much you will need for this additional fee. In the Kauai Island, there are many beautiful places that you can reach only by 4WD cars, so for those who wants some adventures to go off road, this small Yaris is not for you, but it’s convenient enough to go around the island.

Roy's Juke was a fun, sporty car. I prefer to drive manual transmissions, which are difficult to find in rental situations. Car appeared well maintained and we had no issues whatsoever. It also got amazing fuel economy for being so peppy. Highly recommended.

Carrie C. - March 25, 2018
Toyota Tacoma 2008
This was my first time using Turo and Melvin made the experience fantastic. He was prompt with both pick up and drop off. I rented the white 2008 Tacoma truck and it was delivered clean inside and out. I’ve rented many cars over the years and have always been nervous about thieves target tourist cars for theft and a general bias from some locals when they know you’re a tourist so having a vehicle that made you blend in with local community actually made me feel much more relaxed. The next time I’m on Kauai, I will gladly use one of Melvin’s vehicles again, Mahaloz Melvin
