Description

This adorable green grasshopper Mini Cooper is super speedy along the scenic views of Hawaii and powerful up The Big Island's crazy steep volcanic roads especially thanks to her manual transmission! Her emerald green paint job matches the tropical fauna that abounds here with plenty of room for four and a sky and a moonroof to let in plenty of tropical Hawaii air as you adventure! Oddly small looking with plenty of room inside gives you the ability to lay down back seats and pack in boogie boards, luggage and snorkel gear if needed. Great surround sound speaker system with aux cord & CD for prime tunes! Non-smoking owner so she's a non-smelly car. Leather/ cloth interior that's in in excellent condition with no tears, scratches or scrapes makes her close to new looking. Best of all this quick little road racer gets 36 to 41 miles per gallon! Speaking of fuel, this car has a BMW engine & requires premium fuel ONLY! Thank you! A few things to know, our island is a very extreme one and so can driving be on cars. #1: Please do not take my mini up to Mauna Kea. The Observatory is fine, but then catch a shuttle from there. This is too hard on a car to go through every week. #2: Please do not take her down into Waipio Valley. It is restricted for only four wheel drive vehicles and is not only very steep but also dangerous. The towing alone is $1,000. #3: No Maks (Makleowena Beach). End of story. Thank you!

Parking details

Please always put emergency brake on when parking as we are quite a mountainous terrain. Please make sure to disengage while driving!

Guidelines

Please no smoking at all in car or even with hand hanging outside window. Please don't sit in car with wet suits on. Use a dry towel or change first. No dogs please. No coffee in car without lids on please. I've learned this one in the past the hard way a few times with other cars of mine!

We loved the car and Chantal was great! Good communication and flexibility. The Mini was mechanically in great shape and such fun to drive. Economy was a plus with Hawaii gas prices! 500+ mile on a tank means we only had to fill up once. We are hoping to get a month rate for the next visit!

the mini cooper is a nifty little car...fun to drive with the sunroof wide open. lots of "shakas" from the locals....never get those with a traditional rental car.

Thanks so much for letting us rent your car.

Chantel picked us up from the airport and we went to an awesome organic grocery store for supplies where we also dropped her off. We had a great discussion about the big island, her yoga studio, learned about her life here on the island and where to spend our days on the big island for our 1st anniversary. The “grosshopper” Mini Cooper performed great. It has a nice sunroof we often open for the nice breeze; the a/c works wonderfully too. We would definitely look for Chantel when we return next time. Perhaps a van next time :)

Chantel is fantastic with communication and her Mini ‘Grasshopper’ served as a rock solid Big Island commuter. Amazing gas-mileage for driving all the way around the Island. Pick-up was a snap, and drop-off worked well, too, very near the airport. Highly recommended!
