Ryan and his wife were wonderful to deal with. Brand new (literally) vehicle / ample enough for 3+ hour trips with 2 adults, 15yr old son and 17yr old daughter. Great communication during reservation process (and awesome gas mileage car was also a plus). Definitely recommend and will look up again during next visit.

We loved using Ethan’s jeep! It was the perfect vehicle for our time on the big island. Very functional vehicle, and it came exactly as described. Pick up and drop off were totally seamless. We even asked (very last minute) for an earlier pick up time (5 hours early in fact), and Ethan quickly responded, no problem. This made a huge difference in our first day of vacation and was so greatly appreciated. His response times throughout the trip were extremely timely. 10/10 would recommend. Thank you so much Ethan.

Kelley dropped the car off at my hotel clean and ready to go and let me leave it at the airport visitor parking - which was crazy convenient! I’m not sure this would always be possible if you were staying on the east side of the island but it worked great for me. The car was perfect for a day trip around the island and getting to and from destinations and restaurants during our stay. I definitely recommend!

TK was very responsive and I really enjoyed renting his Kia Soul. It was sooooo much easier than renting a car from the airport and he was very accomodating. I was surprised how much I enjoyed driving the car considering I usually rent higher-end vehicles in Hawaii. It was in great shape, it was clean and reliable. I would definitely rent another of his vehicles again for sure. I even ordered take-out from his restaurant both the day we picked up the vehicle as well as the day we returned it and they have amazing food at TK Noodles. I highly recommend trying their Tempura Green Bean plate. It was delicious. Thanks TK!!!

TK was amazing! We enjoyed the Kia Soul a lot. It was clean and drove nice. When I needed couple extra hours on the day when the car was due, TK allowed me to keep it a little longer. The best part about TK was when we had to go back to the airport and couldn't find an Uber, TK had one of his employees drive us there. This is one of the highest customer services that I have ever seen.

First time users of Turo, so we didn't know what to expect. We rented a lifted Jeep Wrangler for 3 days and had a blast. Ryan was really helpful, flexible, and very responsive. He provided tips for taking the top down. If we're coming back to the big island, we'll be working with him again. Highly recommended.

This jeep was perfect for those wanting to explore the island. It was much more than we expected. It doesn't matter if you're visitng Hawaii for the 1st time, or if you're treating yourself to a little staycation. This jeep easily exceeds any requirements needed to explore the island. On top of it all, Ryan was excellent at communicating all aspects involving our turo trip. I would even say that both the pick-up and drop-off were seamless. I highly recommend going through him over a rental company any day.

I can’t tell what’s best. If Ryan as a turo host or his Jeep. He’s been super accommodating, responsive and kind during the whole process, before - during - after.

I will definitely be renting the same jeep when I return to the big Island!

Hands down the best rental house experience I’ve had, and the coolest ride! Tony and Kate are amazing people, very very helpful and if I’m back on the island I hope to grab a Jeep from them again for our entire trip. The Jeep we had, Rubicon on 35s handled great with perfect offsets for stability on those windy roads to our destination. The vehicle was more than capable of what we asked of it and gave us a measure of security knowing we’d reach our destination with ease. I do have 4 wheeling experience but the capability of this vehicle will help anyone get where they are going on the ‘normal’ tourist sites. It was perfect for our trek to Green Sands. Just a note to anyone getting this vehicle and have no 4x4 experience. Treat it with respect, your not invincible although you may feel like it. Get out of your vehicle to look around the next obstacle on foot if you’re unsure and go slow, and enjoy the ride.

The Jeep was perfect for our family of 4 on vacation. There was plenty of room for our luggage on pick up and drop off as well as having enough room for all of our gear while out on day adventures. Thre ease of pickup was mind blowing. This being our first experience with Turo, I didn't realize anything could be so simple. We are used to spending at least 30 minutes at a rental counter. Thank you for being amazing! Also, the beach chairs, umbrella, and large cold bag were so appreciated. We used them easy more than I had anticipated and made things so convenient. We will definitely do this again.

The Jeep was an awesome choice for the Big Island. So glad I rented it. We drove the 40 mile Mana Rd and had a bumpy blast. Joe was super easy to work with. Answered all my questions and had the Jeep waiting for me at the terminal. So convenient! It was great to skip the rigmarole of the typical rental places. Just jumped in and drove away while the other travelers waited in the hot sun for a shuttle bus. Only notes might be, take their advice and get four-door if you have more than two people. We were a couple, so it wasn’t a big deal, but there definitely isn’t much room inside once you put the back seat down. Also, the gas mileage on the Jeep isn’t great and you are going to be doing a lot of fun driving. So make sure you budget for fuel! But you weren’t shopping for a Prius anyway :-) Thanks Joe. I’d recommend renting your Jeeps to anyone.

Steven was a great host and provided a very fun vehicle for our trip to Hawaii. Great for navigating unpaved roads that would make someone nervous in a typical rental car, these roads are what this jeep lives for! The beach gear was a great bonus; very nice snorkeling gear and Tommy Bahama chairs/umbrella along with boogie boards and a cooler. You cant beat the convenience! Steven is awesome, will definitely look to rent from him again on future trips.
