Description

2018 Tesla Model 3 with long range (300-mile) battery. Driving a Tesla is a great way to enjoy your visit to the garden island while saving the planet. This car is fast and fun, and Kauai’s power grid is half powered by renewable energy including solar, hydropower, and biomass. The 270-mile range is more than enough to travel the entire island, including trips up Waimea Canyon or to the end of the road on the North Shore. If you are concerned about charging an electric car on Kaua’i, note that we will provide tips for utilizing the charging opportunities throughout the island, and the maximum refueling charge you will pay is $20 as long as the car is returned with at least 54 miles of range. Details in the FAQ. Although you can book this car if staying anywhere on Kaua’i, this is a great rental for visitors who are staying in Poipu, Kauai's largest resort area. Don't bother dealing with a rental car at the airport: Take a shuttle, Lyft/Uber, or taxi between the airport and your lodging on the south side, and rent our car for just the days you need it. When making your reservation, select one of the Poipu area resorts or select "guest's location" and enter your rental house or condo address, anywhere within the Poipu or Koloa area. For a small $25 delivery fee you'll have the car at your doorstep. Alternatively, I can deliver the car to the Lihue Airport for a larger fee (airport delivery will also require you to pay to exit the airport's parking lot, up to $16). We offer a 15% discount for bookings of 3 days or more, and another 15% (30% total) discount for bookings of 7 days or more. The Model 3 is Tesla's smallest car, but has a decent sized trunk, as well as a sub-trunk and frunk. It is a great car for an individual, couple, or family with one child, but would also work for a family of four with carry-on luggage or no more than one large checked bag . Or if you opt to have the car delivered to you at a resort or house in Poipu (or pick it up at my house), you won't have to worry about luggage and can just enjoy the car for your day trips. If you are unfamiliar with driving an electric car, I will gladly give you tips about EVs in general, and our Model 3 specifically. I can also provide tips about things to do and where to go on Kauai. Go to the website below for videos from Tesla about how to use and drive the Tesla. https://www.tesla.com/support/model-3-videos Our Model 3 has premium black interior (with seat covers), Enhanced Autopilot, rear wheel drive, Tesla navigation, streaming audio content, the Tesla Arcade, and more. See charging details in the FAQs. Please treat our car like you would your own; for example, try to avoid parking where it will get door dings.

Parking details

Park in the grassy area in front of our house (anywhere between the two driveways in front of the white fence or small bushes is fine) with the car facing in the direction of travel (toward the ocean). In the unlikely event that all spaces in that area are taken, you can park it across the street in the grass, or as a last resort in our driveway, even parallel parked in front of other vehicles parked in the driveway.

Guidelines

- Please do not take the car off road. - No smoking in or near the vehicle. - Try to avoid parking where the car might get door dings. - No pets. - Do not use spray sunscreen in or near the vehicle.

Faqs

  • Charging basics for our Tesla

    I'll typically deliver the car with approximately 270 miles of range, as the charging will be set to the highest recommended level for daily charging. There are sufficient opportunities for you to charge the car on Kauai. While there are no level 3 (super fast) charging stations on island, some resorts have complementary level 2 charging stations, which will give you about 25 to 30 miles of range per hour of charging. Level 2 charging stations exist at many other locations around the island, and many of them are free of charge. I'd be glad to give you advice on where and how to charge when needed. I will also provide you with the charging cable and an extension cord so you can charge using a normal 110 volt outlet overnight or any other time you are parked at your rental house or condo (about 3 to 5 miles per hour of charging). If you return the car with less than 216 miles of range (80%), I will charge for refueling per Turo's policies. The refueling charge is based on the battery level, as follows (assuming a 270-mile effective range): 0%–20% charge (0 to 54 miles) = $50 21%–50% charge (55 to 135 miles) = $20 51%–80% charge (136 to 216 miles) = $10

We had never used Turo before and it went smoothly. Michael was easy to work with and his short tutorial was perfect for making us comfortable driving a Tesla something we had not done. The car fit our family of four fine for short trips around Kauai. Would highly recommend arranging a car through Michael.

Great host! I had never driven a Tesla and was able to have a short tutorial. The car was immaculate and nice to drive. Charging was very easy at my resort and Michael checked in to make sure that I did not have any issues.
