Our trip with Kristi’s Jeep was great! The Jeep was in great condition and super clean when we arrived. The handoff of keys and drop off at the end of our trip were seamless. I’d definitely rent Kristi’s Jeep on future trips to Santa Barbara!

The car was clean and the gas tank full. Elissa met us at the airport and was very friendly and accommodating. We LOVED the Q5! We own 2 Audis, so we were right at home. If you're visiting Santa Barbara... this is your car.

This is our second time using Kristi‘s Jeep. It’s the perfect vehicle for our needs. Kristi was very flexible when our airline changed our flight times, coming and going. The drop off and pick up at the airport was very easy. Kristi even left cash to cover the short term parking fee. We’ll be returning to the area in a few months and plan to rent her Jeep again.

Toyota Highlander 2013

Great car. Better host. Eric is AWESOME!!! On Sunday evening, my girlfriend and I suddenly needed to rent a car for Monday morning. There were limited options, and most were unwilling to book on such short notice. Despite requesting the car barely 12 hours in advance, Eric had the car freshly cleaned and ready to go. When we picked it up, it was in immaculate condition and even had a bottle of hand sanitizer in the cup-holder. After already having booked this trip last minute, our plans shifted again and we had to change the pickup time of the car. Then, our plans shifted AGAIN, and we had to change the drop-off time. Eric had every right to be annoyed with us, but instead was remarkably kind and accommodating. The car itself is in great condition and runs very well. Leather seats, very roomy, the car has all the bells and whistles, including Bluetooth and a sunroof. It is also surprisingly fuel efficient for its size. Despite being what I would describe as an SUV class vehicle, I drove this car from Santa Barbara to LA and back (apprx 200miles) and spent exactly $20.02 in gas, which is more or less the same as when I take my regular car. I have used Turo a lot over the years. Though I have never encountered a bad host, Eric and his vehicle stand out in my mind as an exceptional; experience. Whether you are lugging around a lot of gear or just dropping your girlfriend off in Los Angeles, or anything in between, I highly recommend Eric and his Toyota Highlander.

Loved my experience with both Steven and the car. I felt safe, taken care of from Steven, and enjoyed my trip. I was grateful to be able to travel around in a good and capable car. I appreciated the simple things that made things much easier for me like the door code, pictures of where the car was parked, and prepaid airport parking. Would definitely rent again.

I’m not sure where to begin on how amazing my experience with Kristi and John was , my daughters and I had an incredible Father’s Day weekend . The details inside the Jeep are so cool , they were flexible with every request , the only draw back is you won’t the trip to end and yup!! We extended the rental 😊.... will definitely be renting from them again !!!! Thank you guys -Derek and the girls
