Definitely have lots of room for beach and hiking gear. We love this truck! It seats up to 5 people. Smooth to drive. AC works great and stereo works great, too. There is a CD player, but a Bluetooth receiver works great in this vehicle. The sound comes out great through the car speakers.
If you are searching for long-term rental, please message me.
Thank you for your interest. We trust that you will treat our vehicle with aloha.
Pickup and drop-off location is at the Hilo International Airport parking lot. There may be a charge but no more than $15. If, on a rare occasion, the parking fee is more than $15, please leave me the receipt and we will refund the difference to you.

This vehicle is equipped with GPS and an Activity Tracking device. It routinely sends data to owner for tracking. Information is accessible to owner only. Removal and tampering is subject to a $250 charge. Should the device be missing or damaged when the vehicle is returned, there will be a $250 charge.
Please do not smoke inside our XTerra. It is a non-smoking vehicle. I use this vehicle when it is not being rented and I am allergic to tobacco.
Pets are welcome in the vehicle, but please take care that your pets do not damage our vehicle. We do ask that you bring our XTerra back to us in the same state. If you get it dirty, we would greatly appreciate a quick cleanup. We would like to keep the car in excellent condition for others and for you, should you need it again. There will be a cleaning fee should the vehicle be returned to us dirty. If we send it to a detailer to remove stains from food, drink, and/or your pet(s), please know that we will submit a notice to Turo for the detailing fee.
Do you deliver to Kona?
It is possible for us to deliver to Kona, but it depends on our schedule. Please know that Kona is a 2-hour drive from our house to the Kona Airport. That will take up 4 hours of our day. My husband and I both work and we may not always be able to take this time for delivery.
We will also have to drive a second vehicle to deliver the XTerra to you since we will need it to get home.
If we do deliver, please note that there will be a $120 charge for our gas and our time. You will also be responsible for filling the gas tank for your use and returning it to us full.
2005 Nissan XterraCruise the Island XTerra-Style1557
This is a great vehicle! It is comfortable and smooth running. The back seats fold down so we put an air mattress in the back and slept there on nights we wanted to camp and it was raining or the ground was too rocky.
Communication with Ruthie was easy, and she was super flexible when our flight was delayed and we needed a change in pick up time. We didn't get to meet Ruthie, but it was so convenient to get off the plane in Hawaii and simply go pick up the car in the parking lot. We were out of the airport parking lot in 5 minutes. The car was comfortable to ride in and perfect for our week exploring the Big Island.
Ruthie was very friendly and concerned if everything was all right... Thanks a lot. Replies always very soon.
We got the perfect car for out trip at a good price! I'd book the same one again if available.
Perfect truck to tour around Hawaii. We had the Nissan for 10 days and had 4-5 adults in the car and a ton of luggage. Super clean and easy to drive. Ruthie was very responsive to questions before and during the trip. I would highly recommend renting from Ruthie.
