Tekla is a lovely and gracious host in a very beautiful place. She made us feel very welcome and even stocked several food items for us before we arrived. Although a couple of lights/fans need attention, the home is very beautiful, has a very good layout, and was clean and comfortable. The kitchen is large and has all the basic needs -- new ovens, new garbage disposal, gas stove, etc. The breakfast nook is downright charming, with hugs windows! Tekla provided beach towels and chairs for our use, and even let us use some bicycles in her garage. Tekla lives in another home on the property and so is easily reachable. The street (the "Loop") features a lot of walkers, runners, joggers, moms with strollers, and bicyclists -- not to mention people arriving to swim, surf or canoe. The town of Kailua, with many fun shops and restaurants (both local and chains, including a Whole Foods), is nearby (short car or bike ride). The beautiful Lanikai and Kailua beaches are also very close -- just a walk or a bike ride away. Honolulu/Waikiki is 30 minutes by car. It is a fairly idyllic place for a vacation. Thank you Tekla!
Tekla was a very caring host, bringing free gifts to the house, ordering Taxi-Services and she even made some small grocery shopping for us - always doing more than she had to. She has always a friendly smile. That makes you feel almost at home.
The house is spacious and has everything you need.
The whole environment Lanikai is a top neighborhood.
We enjoyed our stay very much! Thanks Tekla!
We had a great time in Kailua. The house is just a short ten minute walk to one of the most beautiful beaches on Oahu. The house is not entirely private as there is a small cottage and another house on the property. As we were the first renters of the property there were still a few kinks that needed to be worked out- drapes on windows, real beds instead of airbeds, etc. However, we were fully aware of these issues going in and I am sure Tekla will amend before she rents again. Overall, a great experience!
Tekla and her daughter were a joy to have visit. She host on Airbnb so she was very aware. The perfect guests. Welcome back anytime! Highly recommend.
Tekla W is trustworthy and a straight shooter. What she says is what's she means. No pretenses, no BS, just pure aloha. I would rent from her, allow her to pick me up from a crowded airport and go to any restaurant she recommends.
Each and every time I am in her company my heart fills with joy and laughter. We've been through many a benchmark together and I am happy to be part of her ohana.
Tekla's rental in Lanikai is amazing. It's a beautiful spot on a beautiful island and she will welcome any visitor like a member of the family.
Tekla has been such a wonderful trusting and caring friend for as long as I have known her. Hard to imagine that I have known her for about 6 years now as it seems like yesterday when we met on Maui working the same project with our wonderful designer friend Jill. Time flies when you have great people to share a good or bottle of wine or just catching up when you cross paths on your travels in life. She will always be the kind of person whom I will call my friend in this life and hopefully my next. Probably the most fun easy going host one could want and especially here in Hawaii. Mahalo and Aloha, Kurt
