Jeffrey was a great host. Quick replies and very easy to deal with. Pick up and drop off were so easy. Love his Prius. We also ended up renting a jeep for one day (to visit the volcano). 9 hours of jeep rental cost more in gas than 1 week of Prius!!! Highly recommend Jeffrey's Prius

The car was great and a must when traveling the island. Jeffery was quick to respond to any questions and very accommodating. The pick up/drop off at the airport is convenient and the entire rental process smooth.

Kaleo met us at the airport & picked us up. We went to a gas station down the road to start the trip. The car was very clean & gets pretty good gas mileage. Afterwards, we met Kaleo at the same gas station by the airport where we finished up the trip & he dropped us off at the airport. Overall, very easy & excellent turo experience.

You can definitelysee the pride and effort he puts in his property. Also, he was very professional and easy to reach/communicate with throughout the whole process. I highly recommend renting from Eric.

We had an awesome time touring the Big Island in Andy's car. He was able to come and pick us up at the airport when we first got there, and at the time of departure, we left the car at the airport parking lot. The car itself was clean and in great conditions. Also super fuel efficient (~35 for a full tank)! It had a rearview camera.

ハワイ島を満喫する為に借りました! 決め手はコナ空港まで無料で持ってきてくれることと、朝の早い時間帯でも対応してくれる事! 借りるときは空港の駐車場に置いといてくれたのですが、空港の駐車場に置くのを人に頼んでいて、その人が写真を撮るのを忘れて場所がわから無いというトラブル笑 オーナーのClystalがわざわざ来てくれました^_^ まあ、来る前に比較的早く見つけられたんですがね笑 Clystal美人だったので会えて良かったです笑 マスタングは快調で、まあ多少の傷凹みはあるものの、気にならない程度で綺麗でした 電動オープンなので開閉が楽で、走りも楽しいですよー

Car was exactly as advertised. Amber had car at airport for easy pickup and return was also very easy drop off at the airport, so much easier then traditional rental with pickup and off site rental facilities. Car ran great and Amber was also quite helpful with helpful recommendations for activities and dining on the island. All things considered, I will use Turo again and Amber again if we return to Hawaii
