Matt went above and beyond to make sure we received his car with a VERY late arrival into San Luis Obispo. The Mercedes SUV was super fun (and smooth) to drive, incredibly clean, and very spacious. We will definitely book with Matt for our next visit!

Having been interested in buying an EV but unable to due to the supply chain issues, my daughters and wife decided to press for us to rent a Tesla for our long weekend in San Luis Obispo. Wow am I glad we did. Rory did a superb job of prepping and cleaning the car, met me when I got in, and the car was awesome. He warned me that I wouldn't need to use the brakes much, and he was right. All I can say is it was really fun. We drove all over, spending one day in Paso Robles and another in the Avila Beach area. We were staying in a rental that was near the top of the Irish Hills / Prefumo Road area, so we had 20 minutes of slow narrow roads each way. It was amazing that I almost never had to brake even going down those hills. The rental house even had a Tesla charger, so we were set for the weekend. Nice to not buy any gas! The car was so spotless when I picked it up I felt bad about the misc. bug stains when I turned it in! I highly recommend this car from Rory. Thank you Rory!

This was a perfect experience! Sam was very responsive, friendly and easy to work with during booking, his dropoff/car pickup and return, and was very accommodating and patient with some last-minute changes I had requested. The car was fun to drive and very clean. I would not hesitate to rent from Sam again or to recommend him to others!

Matthew was very communicative and accommodating despite our last minute reservation. His immaculate (freshly detailed) car was perfect for our trip and even included a handy phone mount for navigation in addition to backup chargers (which we didn’t need but were happy to find). It was an exceptional experience from start to finish - would not hesitate for an instant to rent from him again. He deserves more than 5 stars but that’s all I’m allotted on this platform.

Jon is a great host! He was very accommodating re: pickup and drop off. His RAV4 was immaculate. We rented it for 6 weeks and found Jon to be very communicative and helpful throughout the entire time. We had a few issues (tire requiring plugging and patching due to a nail; dinged windshield from a truck launched stone) however Jon was easy going about them and helpful with problem solving (FYI...American Tire fixed the tire for free!). We would highly recommend renting from Jon!

Toyota RAV4 2021

Versatile vehicle for our family of four! Plenty of space for a long Christmas weekend trip. Two car seats in the backseat and presents and luggage in the back. We needed a little more space to travel and Jon’s RAV4 was perfect. Jon was awesome. Coordinating pickup and drop off with ease. He spent time to go over all the bell and whistles of the RAV4 and Yakima accessories on his vehicle. He offers a few extras that we didn’t take advantage of on this trip but will on the next trip. Whether you are renting as a SLO local to take out of town or you are visiting the central coast and need a vehicle to explore our beautiful region, don’t look any further. This is what you need. Jon’s RAV4 will get you there!

Tesla Model Y 2021

This is the second time we've rented from Rory, both times were excellent. Fast response time for anything that comes up. For those who don't know, it's best to keep the battery between 20%-80% for longevity of the battery. In our case Rory charged it to 100% for a long trip which we really appreciated! Then we accidentally left it charging which incurs idle fees (Tesla enforced) so he bumped the limit from 80 to 100% so we would incur less idle fees, really above and beyond!
