“Great service at a great price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013

We were picked up at our condo, taken to the rental property, given locks and lights (to help us save money, they said three locks would be enough for five bikes), and sent on our way. This is definitely the way to travel in Key West. Our bikes probably weren't the prettiest on the island, but they got us where we were going. Definitely recommend.

We can’t thank you enough for taking the time to write a review. We’d also like to thank you for recommending SunShine Scooters to others. We thought about ordering colored bikes, but opted for the all black instead. No matter what the color, biking in Key west is a blast! We’re glad you had such a great time. Please come back and see us on your next trip to Key West! Take Care, Jon & Sherry

“Great Service and Value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

This was a reasonably priced scooter/bike rental company. Also, this is the second time we dealt with Mashayla who was very friendly and always making sure our scooter or bicycle needs are met.

“For my buck this is my way to get around”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

About ten days before we left for N.O. I read in a blog where someone was renting an electric car for the day. A little surfing made it clear that there were plenty of opportunities for the running dog running capitalist pigs at Southern Most. I found the rates at Sunshine Scooters to be about $20 more than the Conch Train yet we could choose where and where we went. Not only that but the reviews on Trip Advisor were positive. .

They picked us up at the cruise ship and we were behind the wheel in twenty minutes. The mobility let us pass up Hemingway''s time and time again until the line went down. We were able to go to two beaches, Fort Taylor and Hemingway's on our time.

The Charming Bride and I were glad we did this. The only comment I have is that I asked Flipper, the shuttle driver to stop in a gas station so I could pick up a twelve pack of pop before we got on the ship. No problem he said, but he dropped us off at a carryout where we had to buy the pop by the bottle at three times the price. Next time we will just stop for pop instead of relying on Flipper.

Thank you so much for your review. You are so right….Electric Cars and Scooters definitely give you the freedom to go at your own pace in Key West. We love the photo of your Charming Bride…thank you for posting it. We’re sorry Flipper couldn’t get you to a lower priced vendor for your pop….it gets so busy when we’re returning folks to the Ships that it doesn’t leave him much time to make special stops. I’m so glad Flipper was able to stop somewhere for you…he always does as much as he can for customers like you. Please come back and see us on your next visit. We’re looking forward to it! Take Care, Jon & Sherry

“Sunshine Scooters Rocks!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

Our family spent a week in Key West, renting 6 bicycles and a scooter, from a company committed to customer service (a rarity these days). Jon and the Boston brothers go above and beyond to make your stay easy and convenient. Getting around Key West on bikes was a great way to experience the island and Bostonians shuttling us around made the trip a blast. Thanks guys!

Thank you so much. Jon and the “Boston Brothers” (Flipper & Tommy) think you Rock too! Jon and I are so fortunate that Flipper & Tommy are part of our team. They are awesome brothers that know this Island inside and out. They always go above and beyond and we’re couldn’t be happier that you got to enjoy them as well. Please come back as soon as you can….we miss you already! All our best, Jon & Sherry

“Excellent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

We initially rented two scooters for a day from the Roosevelt location. The very nice girl who took care of us showed us how everything worked on the scooters, had us do a quick demo ride in the parking lots and had us on our way in short order. The following morning we stopped by to extend the rental for another 24 hours, and the same lovely girl took care of us. We got a different scooter for my husband, as the one from the first day kept trying to stall. Riding home from watching the sunset, we found out that the lights on his new scooter weren't working. Since we were headed straight to the hotel and leaving the following morning, it wasn't that big a deal for us. They apologized for the lights when we told them the next morning. Even got a quick ride back to our hotel!

Thank you so much for your review. We’re so happy you enjoyed working with Mashayla…..she’s a treasured employee and we think the world of her. It’s wonderful that you had such an enjoyable vacation and you took the time to share your experience with others. We’re so sorry that there were a few issues with your Scooter; but, we’re very fortunate to have one of the best Mechanics, Mike, working with us. When there is an issue he takes care of it right away. We look forward to seeing you on your next trip to Key West. All our best, Jon & Sherry
