My second time renting from Somsanith, and I must say, a fantastic person to deal with. Cars are always in tip top shape, and I would recommend my mother to Somsanith. That's how much trust I have! Thank you again and Aloha.

Justin is super nice and helped us in a complicated situation although it was late and had nothing to do with the car rental. Thanks for everything! The car was a bit rickety but has everything you need to get from A to B.

Car comfortably fit four. Car was in great shape. Picking up and dropping off was way more convenient than a standard car rental. We also saved a lot on gas with the electric/hybrid.

This was our first time using Turo and I would definitely use them again. While our fellow passengers on our flight had to get on a shuttle to get to their car rental agencies where they would get in yet another line, we just walked a few steps to the parking lot where our car was left for us. After uploading a few pictures of the vehicle to the Turo app we were on our way, missing rush hour traffic, and making it to our condo and enjoying snorkeling and our holiday in Kauai 40 to 60 minutes sooner than those who were renting with traditional car rental companies. The drop off was easy as well. Using Turo not only saved us time but saved us money. It was more than $100 less to use Turo than using a traditional rental company. We were also able to rent an electric vehicle thereby saving more money by not having to buy gas at high Hawaiian prices.

Easy and convenient. Lam was very prompt and thorough with instructions and response to inquiries. Vehicle is perfect size and has a terrific AC! One element of concern was the visibility of the lockbox. Having it so visible makes it a potential target as a tourist/rental vehicle. Comments from locals were made throughout the trip stating that it is a sure target concern as well.

This was my first time renting through Turo and it was a great experience! At first, I was a little worried about renting from a private party (though the concept made sense) but the process of pick up and return was very smooth and Nathan was a very good communicator throughout the trip! It was so easy and enjoyable to walk by the long lines at the car rental booths at the airport on my say to Nathan's Mustang that was just waiting for me in the parking lot. I can't picture ever renting from the normal companies where you never know what car you'll end up with and have to fight the crowds at the airport. The car itself was great, clean and well maintained for a four year old car. Overall, this was the best car rental experiences I've ever had!

BMW i3 2016
Justin’s BMW i3 is a fun and comfortable car. The AC works immediately and quickly cools down the cabin. The car handled rain storms no problem. The electric range was enough for us and we never had to use the range extender, although we came close once, so it was nice to have the peace of mind that we could still go another 80 miles if necessary. We drove 270 miles during our week stay all on free electricity. When booking your trip, be sure to look into available charging stations. We had a nearby station at each of our hotels, making the overnight charging a breeze. Justin had great communication and his car met or exceeded every expectation.

If there was a 10 star option for service, I would give it. Robert has “GREAT” communication throughout the entire booking. I had a very last minute (in 7 hours) business travel. My office was unable to book the rental so I had to find a rental that was quick fast and didn’t cost a fortune. I had contacted Robert around Midnight. Lucky for me he was up. Once he confirmed my order, he dropped off the vehicle at the airport and left money to cover the parking fee and a full tank of gas. He had done everything to make sure I had no problems when I landed. It all happened so fast that I didn’t think it would have been possible. He was a true life saver!

My girlfriend and I loved using this beautiful Kia Rio (aka the "Pineapple Express" 🙃) on our recent trip to Kauai! As others reviewers have stated, Kimberly's car is super easy to find in parking lots--which came in handy since this was our first time visiting the island. More importantly, the vehicle was clean and well-serviced. The pick-up point is a quick trip from the airport and minutes away from several beaches East Shore beaches. Thank you so much, Kimberly, for letting us use your car to explore this beautiful island!

Half the cost from renting from one of the major car rental places. The car was clean, well taken care of and just a pleasure to drive. The 1000 miles that we were allotted were far enough to see the whole island. Awesome price! Great on gas mileage!

BMW i3 2015
Justin was awesome to work with and really helped me out when another Turo user cancelled my trip the day before our arrival into Lihue; let's be clear, Justin is a friendly, accommodating rockstar. The car itself was a blast to drive and quite an experience, I would highly recommend the BMW i3! The car was clean, fun to drive, and easy to park anywhere/ everywhere. The only issues we had were with the charging stations around the island and the actual navigation interface of the vehicle. There were not nearly as many charging stations as I was led to believe by multiple sources (not on Justin at all) so please keep that in mind when you decide to rent an EV - plus, the charging stations we could find required payment which kind of stinks when you think you won't have to pay for "fuel." Also, the interface of the navigation of the car is the most tedious process I have ever dealt with (again, not on Justin - this is a BMW issue). We ended up using our phones for navigation for 90% of the trip because the built-in navigation is not intuitive and a lengthy process to enter information into. The car and service was an excellent experience and I highly recommend it. Personally, I would rent this car again if I return to Lihue and just wanted others to be aware of the EV charging stations and frustrating navigation, but those things are not worth picking a different car because once again - this thing was FUN.

What a great rental experience! The car was perfect for our vacation on Kauai, got exceptional gas mileage saving us money for other expenses. Ashley left the car at the airport for super easy pickup and then had us leave it in the parking lot for quick return. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience! The car is comfortable, loaded with amenities, and even fun to drive. A great choice if you’re vacationing on Kauai.

This car was perfect for our family of 4 during our two week trip to KAUAI! Great on gas, Robert was flexible about pick up and drop off making our lives easier and, though it was compact, it still fit all of our suitcases, backpacks, two car seats and one double stroller! I recommend paying the little bit extra to have the cleaning done for you after as it was so nice not to stress about sand or worry about cleaning it ourselves after. So happy we went with this car rather than a traditional rental! Thanks Robert!

Renting from Somsanith was easy and convenient. He left the car in the Lihue parking lot and I returned it to the same location. It saved me the time and hassle of having to take a ride share to pick up the car. The Carolla was clean and easy to drive. No problems. I would rent again from Somsanith.

Awesome trip and experience through Turo and Justin!!!

Justin was great! Really enjoyed exploring Kauai in a quiet, capable EV— no pollution and no paying for gas. On the last day of our vacation, Justin made the cleaning & drop-off simple and easy, so we had nothing to worry about on our way to the airport. If we make it back to Kauai, we’d love to get a vehicle from Justin again.

Justin was great to rent a car from. He was on top of communicating with us and made pick up and drop off easy. I should have did some research on electric cars before I rented it tho. I give the electric car itself a 3 star. I didn’t realize it would take 5 hours to get a full charge in a public port and 20 hours on a home cord. That part was a little inconvenient for our trip as there were limited public ports and we didn’t want to waste our day waiting for it to charge instead of exploring.

Justin will be the first to tell you that I was skeptical about driving an EV as I have never driven one before. He reassured me that EV’s are great for the island and he couldn’t have been more correct. My wife and I used the car to wander around the south side of the island while staying on the south and we saw the north side while staying north with no issues. Our AirBnB allowed us to charge the car over night so we had a full charge each night (~135mi range) we never once came close to running out of a charge. One day we went to west coast to do some hiking which involved a lot of uphill driving. This did use up a decent bit of the charge, but you get to enjoy the ride down the mountain where the car charges the entire time down as you slightly brake. Public charging is available in Lihue and a few other places on the island. Download a charging app to see where they are or ask Justin. We used these a few times but never had to wait for another car that was charging. Justin was very punctual, friendly and good to get along with. The car was clean, fun to drive and a good size for a couple and day trips. The car is also a super fun color. I always thought everyone would drive fun colored cars on a tropical island but I was shocked by how many grey cars I saw on the island so it was cool feeling unique.

Clean, great AC, very roomy trunk for our luggage. Somsanith’s Corolla was the perfect car for our family of four’s vacation on Kauai. Pick up and drop off were easy and convenient at the airport—you will need to pay the parking ticket to get out of the airport parking lot but we are familiar with the airport parking in HI so we knew this would be a factor. Just FYI for those who might not know! Would definitely rent this car again.

As a first time Turo user I was beyond nervous. The app is easy enough but Koa is the one that eased my mind. He made sure all bases were covered and that the whole experience was worry free. I loved that it was ready and waiting at the airport! I knew that if I had any issues he would respond quickly. His car ensured that our family was able to get the most out of our trip to Kauai. I highly recommend renting through Koa! Thank you!

Justin also was able to refer us to an uber driver that picked us up at airport and transported us to the location for car pickup, same on return of vehicle we had same uber to pick us up at Justin's location, back to airport. Loved the electric car, especially with Kauai gas prices. Thanks again Justin. Look forward to doing business again, Mahalo Debra

She travels a lot so can offer it to us! It’s CLEAN and runs perfectly, not a beater like other Turo cars I’ve gotten. They will accommodate you and help out in any way possible! I HIGHLY recommend you rent this car!

Lam was an amazing host. He took the time to set me up with a car that was going to best suit my needs so that I could fully explore the island. He made it very easy to pick up and return the car. He even went out of his way to show me some cool places around Lihue, and took me out for breakfast before driving me all the way back to my hotel in Kapa’a. Would rent from him again in a heartbeat.

Justin was wonderful. He had many ideas as to what we could do and allowed a good bit of flexibility with our early arrival. We got an electric car and this was the first time I had ever had to deal with the charging stations. My first experience was not so great but Justin helped me understand what to do and what not to do. FYI, do not use the charging station at Costco in Lihue. It costs to use it and even when we got it to “work” we came back the next morning and it hadn’t charged at all. All in all we had a wonderful trip and thoroughly enjoyed the island and having this car was a great help! Thank you again Justin for a wonderful car! I look forward to the next time we meet. Aloha and Mahalo!

Driving arround the island in an electric vehicle is amazing. The car was in very good overall condition. The range is about 140mi at full charge: this should be enough for a trip from Princeville to Koke'e State Park and back if you dare. We usually charged in Lihue when we had dinner on our way back. When you consider renting this car you might check want to check the possibility of charging at your accommodation itself. We did not have it, so we had to plan and time the charging on public EV-charging stations. Luckily we stayed just 15min footwalk away from those at the Princeville Shopping Center. Renting from Justin was uncomplicated. It was a very nice experience

This is the best rental car deal on the island. The car is sleek, reliable and great in gas. It’s starts to shake at 60mph, but you’ll almost never get up to that speed around here so it wasn’t an issue. All around fantastic experience and car.

Great communication and flexibility. convenient pick up and drop off. The car was basic but perfect for our trip. The only improvement would be to leave parking money when the car was left for us the day before. Especially since washing the car at the end also costs $15. My daughter rents on Turo and they always leave parking money if they can’t drop off the car the same day. But overall a great rental experience.

Justin was a great host! Great price point compared to rental companies. For a first time Turo user, vehicle pick up and return was a breeze. We rented the Kia Soul EV & the car was very clean, ran smoothly, and had all the essentials - AC, aux/usb port (bring your own cords), storage space, car charger, as well as vacuum and cleaning tools. Was able to hit 150 miles on full charge! Our airbnb up at Princeville did not have an outlet for us to charge the car overnight which would’ve been convenient. This led to us planning around our day to charge the vehicle. We stayed 10 mins away from the Princeville Center and we would charge the car in the evening, walk to the airbnb and then back after two hours. Repeated this process in the morning as well. Most charging stations on island usually have 2 connectors so you best hope you get there before someone else does. AND if it is available, make sure the station actually charges the car before you leave it. During our stay, the chargepoint at Kukui Center appeared to charge for the first minute then froze when we left it - quite frustrating when you take the time to plan around it and it doesn’t go your way but obviously this is out of the hosts’ responsibility. The two charging stations that I was most successful with was at Princeville Center up north (no overnight charging and 2 hr limit) and the Hyatt down south. TIPS? Have the charging apps already downloaded onto your phone so you won’t spend your time figuring it out as you drive around looking for a station. Also, try to find a place to stay that could accommodate an EV so you could charge it overnight as opposed to when you are out and about exploring the island. When trying to conserve battery, use eco mode and enjoy the island breeze by shutting the AC off and rolling the windows down :) Aside from all that, 5 stars to Justin!

We had the opportunity to rent Akon’s Nissan for a week. From start to finish, we’re we extremely happy with the rental. At first, we had to switch our dates for our trip. Not only was Koa responsive, he was flexible and allowed us to change our dates for the rental! We picked up the car, right where he said it was and were able to fit two suit cases and two duffle bags in the back. The car looks small, but it was enough for us. We were able to stow two body boards, two chairs and an umbrella! Don’t be fooled, it is not that small! We hardly used the A/C, but when we did, it was ice cold. We had zero problems with the car, and are super happy we chose KIA’s’ car for the week. Thank you for trusting us with your car!

The Toyota Corolla was exactly as expected! Clean, low gas consumption and the air conditioning was so much appreciated especially after spending long hours hiking and at the beach! Somsanith is very nice and answer to all questions we had. To get the car was easy upon our arrival because the airport is quite small and the parking lot is just in front of the gate where we got our bagages. I recommend renting a car with him! Thank you very much Somsanith. Thanks also Turo.

Justin made this a great experience for me. He was easy to contact, helped me out when I saw a low tire pressure indicator come up, and was flexible with my check in time. Cleaning out the car was easy at the end of the trip since he had a vacuum and dust pan in there, as well as floor liners so you could just dump the sand out after you’re done. Since this is an EV I did have to plan out my schedule in accordance with how many miles I could get and where I could charge the vehicle while killing time, but that’s just one of the slight inconveniences that was minuscule in comparison to the benefits.

Lucy was super helpful throughout our trip and the communication was spot-on. Picking up the car with a lock box made it very convenient for us and the gas mileage was amazing!
