Volkswagen Beetle 2018
Angelos offered A++ service when my flight was diverted to San Francisco at 10:20 pm. He allowed me to pick up his VW at 1:30 am still, and met me at the airport for pickup FREE of charge. Add to that I rented a cool VW Beetle convertible with Turbo for two days for $139 (including all fees and tax). It’s the best deal in town! Thank you!

Toyota Prius 2012
We had a great experience renting Jose’s Prius. It was exactly what we were looking for and we were able to drive around and explore the area as much as we wanted! The car was very clean, had a full tank of gas and had really good gas mileage. Both Jose and his wife were very responsive to our messages and were very flexible with any changes that came up. Would definitely recommend renting from Jose if you are in the area! Thanks!

Chevrolet Spark EV 2016
Shang and his wife are so great! They made the rental process easy and pleasant. Car was in great condition, very clean. This car is so fun to drive. It has pickup, even though it's an EV! The biggest thing to be aware of is all the details of charging. I couldn't charge where I was staying, so I had to charge while out and about. It was confusing at first, but here's what you need to know: Different electric cars use different charging ports. This car can't use Tesla charging or the charging ports for Asian cars like Nissan Leaf. It used SAE combo (fast, 60 mi / 15 mins) or J1772 (slower, 14 mi / hr) or a regular plug connected to the converter (very slow, 4 mi / hr). Use the EVGo app to find fast chargers. It's 20 cents a minute when you have the pay as you go plan. Use the ChargePoint app to find slow chargers, particularly when you'll be parked for a long time. Costs vary for ChargePoint, and there are a few free ones (especially when you're already paying for parking, like in a parking garage), but typically they are $1/hr or less. Can you take this car longer distances, like from Monterey to SF? Yes! As long as there are fast EVGo chargers along your route. I made that trip twice, charging in Gilroy and somewhere in the South Bay, like Mountain View. This added about an hour to the trip. But, having a small car really made parking in SF easier! Plus, being able to park in EV charging only spots was a big advantage. There are fewer chargers in Monterey, PG, and Carmel, so make sure to be more careful there. I couldn't figure out a way to take the car to Big Sur. I love the car and would honestly consider owning an EV if I lived in urban CA. Last point-- the car can have blind spots if you don't adjust your mirrors properly, so just be extra careful about that. And people may take pictures of your car because it looks EXACTLY like the car emoji hahaha.

What a pleasure renting Armand’s Porsche!Armand and his wife were incredibly nice, flexible and easy to work with!

John
Toyota Prius 2012
This Toyota Prius was in great condition inside and out. Pick up was a breeze and Jose was very flexible when I ran into trouble with my airline connection to Monterey due to a delay with my outbound flight that caused me to miss my connection from San Francisco to Monterey. The car ran great and gave me no trouble at all. About half way through the rental I noticed that the right headlight was out one night and called Jose to let him know. He fixed it personally that evening by having me drive over to his house, although he had offered to come to my location. The entire experience was great from start to finish and I would not hesitate to rent this vehicle again!

Wesley was fantastic, as was his Nissan Altima. He was super flexible on the pick up even though we came in late the night before and the pick up was supposed to be at the airport, he came to our Airbnb to scoop us up in the morning instead which saved us an Uber trip. His car was super clean, and fantastic on gas mileage. Would love to rent from him again.
