My wife and I decided last minute to go on a trip to Kona to see family and decided on the earliest flight (5:30 am) Michael was able to accommodate us the best way possible. Michael was able to have the Subaru at the location we wanted at 5:30 am! The Subaru ran very well, the AC was cold, and the gas lasted a while!!! We truly recommend the Subaru to anyone who is looking to have fun on the Big Island while having lots of car space and spend very little on gas. Thank you Michael and Ohana for accommodating us!

Please take care of Emilia's car. My wife and I spent three days touring the Big Island in Emilia's spotless and well cared for car. It was the perfect choice for our trip. The car runs and drives better than new. She has a little notebook with info on operation of the cars standard features and the ones she has added (like bluetooth connectivity). Communication was great and the pickup and dropoff at the airport was very convenient. All to gether the best Turo experience I've had. Mahalo Emilia!

John quite honestly it’s just a phenomenal human being, this was our first time using turo and first time taking a big vacation, everything that could go wrong for us did, major flight delays, landing on the wrong island... John was overwhelming accommodating changing his own personal plans several times, he took at least the worry of our car rental off our plate, his car is exactly as stated, Ice cold air... John was simply amazing, thank you John!

Jeff's car was perfect. The whole trip, we only gassed up once! A/c was cold and pick up/ drop off was super easy. I would reccomend a hybrid instead of any Jeep on Big Island as you can't take the rental Jeeps off road anyways so you might as well save some gas money!

The rental car was in perfect condition and worked awesome for our family of 4! The owners were so friendly, helpful and accommodating! They even gave us tips on traveling around the island. Easiest pick-up from the airport ever!

We rented a jeep from Patricio to explore the Big Island. Pick-up and drop off was so easy at KOA. Everything was fine until we went up to Mauna Kea. There was a mechanical issue with the car - the shifting cable broke and I was unable to get the car in gear. Cell phone communication is very spotty in this area. We were able to reach Patricio and figured out what the problem was. A Ranger stopped by to assist and thankfully he was mechanically inclined. He was was able to set the cars gears to 4wd L and D1, so we could get off the mountain without riding the brakes. We made it all the down without incident. We tried contacting Turo many times and got through to a recording saying estimated wait time under a minute and they never picked up. So in our moment of need, Turo was totally absent. VERY DISAPPOINTING. Thankfully, Patricio was on top of things. He drove one hour to meet us at the bottom of the mountain. He was able to replace the cable and we were on our way. Patricio provided great customer service above and beyond. He could have said deal with Turo but he didn't. I highly recommend renting from Patricio. You'll be in good hands.

Kaleo was very flexible and responsive which makes him great to work with. The car worked great for the purpose for which we needed and Kaleo met up with us mid trip when we got a little paranoid. We had never driven a jeep before and weren’t expecting to shift manually the all wheel drive - thinking all of it was automatic. I got the car to show my family around where I used to live and knew I’d need 4wd to get any of the places I needed to go safely. He also gave my husband tips on places to go because he can’t help but ask for advice, and was very pleased with the food recommendations Kaleo provided. Kaleo was also understanding when the airline lost my luggage and caused us to be delayed at pickup with airline paperwork. The one downfall for me specifically was that this vehicle has dark tinted rear windows making visibility at night difficult for reversing. If you have poor night vision, you may want to consider a different vehicle from Kaleo. Otherwise (no issues with night vision), this is an awesome vehicle to rent, especially if you are looking for something that you are able to take off top and drive around. I highly recommend renting a vehicle from Kaleo!

My experience with Mark was first class in every aspect. Everything exceeded my expectations and that's a rare thing to find. I'm well traveled and I was very impressed from the moment I first contacted him about the logistics of picking the car up to dropping the car off. The car was super nice and Mark gave me great island tips including a gorgeous Bay to visit that I'd never heard of in prior trips. If you want a hassle free experience that includes a nice car from a very kind and competent person then choose this listing with Mark. Everything will be top notch and you'll be sooo glad you did!

First, the Jeep was beautiful and it made it possible to see anything on the island. Second, they included a whole list of things that wouldn't come with any other car (Yeti cooler, beach chairs/towels, guide book..) Third, she met us at the airport as our plane was landing and made the drop off extremely easy. She was very nice and accommodating during the whole process. Could not have been happier with this experience. Thanks Ashley.

Great island car to get us around. Very very convenient pick up and drop off for us at KONA airport. Good on gas! The only downside was that since the island is so big and everything is spread out I think we exceeded 400 miles so our wallets will feel that extra charge. Thank you Anthony!
