Fun Outing on the Big Island
Jan 2021 • Family
We had a blast cruising around the island in this dune buggy! The owner provided different places to check out so you don’t even have to think. The company include complimentary things for the beach if you need them.

We chose an automatic since we haven’t used manual in awhile, but if you know how to, absolutely do it! The buggy is comfortable to sit in and easy to drive. People will be checking you, which was super fun to see their reactions.

We highly recommend using this company. The owner cares a lot to ensure you have fun, which you will!

It was really a great ride and memories.
Nov 2020 • Couples
We were on vacation for one month on the big island, so what better than to rent a sand/ street Buggy from Big Island Buggy. We had it for the day and it was Great! We asked for the yellow Buggy “Tang” and yes it caught a lot of attention to say the least. I had just sold my VW sand rail and it felt good to drive “Tang” as I was having withdrawal from selling mine.
Needles to say we had a lot of fun and took memories home to Arizona that will last forever.
Aloha, Steve & Ellie

Unexpected Last Minute Good Time!
Feb 2020
Husband and I were on our Norwegian Cruise Line Hawaiian cruise docked in Kona for the afternoon with no plans. While walking the streets near the dock, husband mentioned how much he'd like to check out the view from the top of the island and see something outside the local town. I pulled up car rentals on Yelp. Lucky for us, Big Island Buggy was on that list - we bit - they were just blocks away! Left a phone message then Aaron text me that he may have a buggy available within the next hour or two and would let us know - he stayed in touch via text and within the hour, we were on our way up the mountain! A couple of things we were concerned about - my husband had lost his drivers license on our flight over and although I had my license, I cannot drive a manual (stick shift). No hay problema! Showed Aaron and Debi husbands passport - and we were on our way! They made it SO easy to get our fun on! Aaron even mapped out a great plan to fit our "Where should we go for our 2 hour rental time?" We had a ball! If you are considering a car rental, why not rent a Big Island Buggy and increase your fun factor exponentially?! SO much fun!! Debi and Aaron it was a sincere pleasure doing business with y'all!

Had a blast!
Mar 2020
What could be more fun! These buggies are a blast to drive up and down the Kona Coast. Aaron was accommodating and prompt. Vehicle was delivered and picked up as scheduled. He also took the time to point out some locations worth a visit. All this added up to a really great experience and made a great trip even better. Try one of these buggies out, you won't regret it!

Fun driving!
Mar 2020 • Family
Really cool buggies! Had a blast navigating the Kona area roads. The owners were super friendly and very helpful with directions and places to check out. Highly recommend doing this instead of a big company rental, way more fun.

Fun transportation to the beaches & sighteeing
Oct 2019
Aron & Debi were so friendly & helpful orientating us how to drive the dune buggy (Our 1st time driving one!) We rented for 4 hours to drive to the beach as there was no rental cars available in town & we didn't want to go to the airport to get a car.Convenient location for pick up near big banyon tree by the cruise tender drop off we rented this ahead of time & so glad we did as transportation to the beaches is almost none unless you are doing a tour What a great time we had and would definitely do it when we return

Amazing People to Deal With
Feb 2020
We booked this several months in advance, and were looking forward to doing this since we have enjoyed similar experiences in the past. I had a few questions prior to booking because we were coming in aboard a cruise ship, and I wasn't sure about timing, meeting location, etc. Aaron, one of the owners of the company, was very responsive to my inquiries, and helped me immensely. He sent out his list of favorite things to do on the island as well as other suggestions.

To make a very long story short, there was a mix-up with where the ship docked and we were unfortunately unable to make the excursion. I cancelled the reservation the morning of the excursion, and per Tripadvisor policy, was due 0% refund. I reached out to Aaron, and he contacted Tripadvisor to explain the circumstances. He was able to get me 100% refund.

If we are able to get back to Hawaii, I will make a point of booking with Unique Buggy Rentals. The owners are definitely good people, and I have no doubt based on my experience and others who have given them 5-star ratings, that we would have an amazing time.

Mahalo to Aaron for going above and beyond!!

Adventure for any level of adventure seeker!
Nov 2019
Aaron and Debbie were so nice and we loved getting to chat with them about their journey to owning this adorable business! We had a great time driving the buggy around Kona and it was the perfect vehicle to get us to the perfect snorkeling spot! We felt so adventurous in this open-air buggy and enjoyed feeling the wind in our hair and the sun on our skin as we drove. This is a great experience for anyone wanting to feel like a great adventurer without ever leaving a paved road!

Can't wait to do it again.
Jan 2020
We were given a 4 hour rental by my kids for Christmas and right from the get-go you get the sense of how accomadating and helpful Aaron and Debi are.meeting them in persononly reinforces that feeling. They were extremely helpful in explaining the island and suggesting different routes to take. A fantastic couple and a truly memorable experience.A bona-fide 5 star rating for sure.
