“Great time”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013 via mobile

We were in town on a cruise for a few hours. We rented a four person cart, we had to transfer from Duvall st to their lot on the other side of town... Flipper the driver was a very nice guy, but just inconvenient. Also, there was not an hourly rate that we could use, so we booked four hours and used it for two and a half. The cart was fully charged,and clean.

Thank you so much for your review. We’re so glad you enjoyed the Electric Car; but, we do apologize that we have to take you to our Roosevelt location (which is 1.5 miles from our Duval location) to launch the Electric Cars (City mandate). The last thing you want to do on your vacation is drive longer than you feel is necessary. We’re so pleased you enjoyed Flipper though, not only is he a nice guy, but it always amazes me how he can maneuver around traffic and still keep a smile on his face….he’s awesome! We do have a 4-hour minimum on the Electric Car Rentals. Even if they are out for a couple of hours they are finished for the day as it takes several hours (8-hours if the charge is completely gone) to re-charge them. We hope to see you again on your next trip…..maybe a Scooter would be fun next time….you can rent those from our Duval & Caroline location. All our best, Jon & Sherry

“Nice Folks”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

We rented a scooter for a week from Sunshine scooters back in February. The first one I got was a little slow and hard to start. So I took it back to swap it out. Absolutely no problem at all. The kid that was outside cleaning them hooked me up with a new one. Everything about the rental was very pleasant. Everyone that I encountered from the girl behind the desk to the kid working outside were very outgoing and accommodating. Overall nice folks to deal with. Thank you! See you again in February.

What a great review. Thank you so much! We’re so happy everything worked out so well for you and that you enjoyed everyone. Jaime was the guy outside and he is fabulous, we couldn't be happier with him! AJ was the girl inside and this is her first week with us…we’re so happy we found her…she’s a gem! We can’t wait until February to see you again. Have a wonderful summer and let us know when you’re back in town. See you soon, Jon & Sherry

“Perfect!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

On our trip to visit with my brother the guys at Sunshine Scooters got us on scooters at a great price and without a reservation. My sister had trouble with hers and they exchanged it no problem. Everyone was extremely helpful and very nice! We will certainly rent our scooters from them on our next trip down:)

“Car - Scooter - Car”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

My husband and I just visited Key West for the first time! We reserved a 2 seater car, however, my husband decided he would rather drive a scooter so they gladly exchanged with us and gave us our difference in price back! After one day, with both of us riding a scooter, I was not a happy camper! I took dresses and skirts and that presented a problem each time we rode. I called Sherry and the laughed along with me and gladly exchanged it back for another electric car, which was so much better! We will definitely use Sunshine again when we return in November, they go above and beyond! Tom even picked us us at the airport and took us back for our flight! Wonderful people :)!!!

“Fast and friendly”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013

The guys at the Roosevelt location were fantastic. We had four recent high school graduates (age 18-20) and the guys couldn't have been more patient and informative in teaching them safe riding. Although it was a rainy trip the scooters were one of the best things we could have done. The boys had a blast scooting around the island.

What a great review. Thank you so much! It’s very important to our guys that each Customer is comfortable riding a Scooter and that they understand the rules and safety of the road. You’re group picked up on the Scooters quickly. You were all so much fun and we can’t tell you how much we enjoy knowing that you had so much fun. We look forward to your next trip to Key West and can’t wait to see you again. Take Care, Jon & Sherry
