Alison and her partner went beyond expectations in regards to this trip. They make pick up and drop off run smooth with their clear and detailed instructions. They are also easy to communicate with. Even if it’s a way for me to come out to Palo Alto it’s worth taking three different types of transportations just to reach them.

Always enjoy renting from Alison because she’s such a great host! Car is always clean and she’s quick with communication and very accommodating when I request trip changes. Thanks!

Alison is probably the best host I’ve had the pleasure of renting from on Turo. That’s not to say the other hosts aren’t also all-stars, but Alison takes it to the next level. She communicated clearly, promptly, and with sufficient detail to leave me without many questions. The car was in great shape for a 13 year old car. I will definitely rent from Alison again.

Don't hesitate to rent this car. It is small but sturdy and powerful. The car comes clean as can be, with a nice leather interior, heated seats, and sunroof. My phone easily connected to the bluetooth audio, and the sound quality was excellent. My main reason for getting this car in particular was the AWD, which functioned extremely well in the light snow environment I was in. Above and beyond this excellent car, Alison is awesome. She communicates quickly and effectively, gives you all the information you could ever need upfront, and is genuinely a nice and understanding person. She has many different cars to choose from, so the next time I need to rent, I am definitely going to her first!

Alison’s Audi station wagon worked wonderfully for a multi-wk trip. Everything from pickup to return was clearly laid out by her, making the entire process painless. Inside the car, there’s a phone holder + iPhone charger, both of which proved helpful and convenient during my trip. On return of the car, I left a personal belonging behind. Before I had even realized I was missing the item, she reached out about the best way to get it back to me. Greatly appreciated that. In sum, she went out of her way to make sure my time with the car was great, and it was. Thank you, Alison!

I needed a car for a few weeks to bridge the gap between returning my lease and purchasing a new car. Those few weeks happened to be the month of March2020. When the pandemic hit, Alison was thoughtful enough to offer a steep discount to extend the rental an additional month. This turned out to be a great and much appreciated help in the covid-19 pandemic times. Also during the rental, the battery died. Alison had her mechanic drive out to my house and change the battery. It got done smoothly, quickly, and almost without me noticing.

Renting Peter’s Porsche 911 convertible was a great experience. She’s got some miles on her, but for a 20 year old car still drives well. Porsche really builds their cars to last. If you’re looking to experience a classic 996 model you won’t be disappointed. This car is raw and mechanical, a true sports car and some believe the last pure 911. Peter is a great host. Pickup and drop off were easy and he was extremely responsive. Overall a wonderful experience!
