This was my first Airbnb experience. I really enjoyed my 3nights4days stay at Cigdem's. The apartment is gorgeous, her room is bright, lovely and neat. (I mean "neat" as Japanese, known for having very high standards in cleanliness!) I loved the mountain/lake view...sunset over mountain is another beauty in Kailua.
The location is also great, 30min walk to the Kailua beach, very close to the town. TheBus stop is very close so check the timetable and take #70...Kailua beach is 3min, Lanikai beach is 5 min ride.
She was a great host, very welcoming and willing to help,
her nicely organized welcome package showing basic house rules and helpful tips helped me a lot to make myself comfortable.
Also she provided me Kailua map, towels&soaps, useful information about town. I am so grateful for her kindness. I would highly recommend staying at her place.
I thoroughly enjoyed staying with Cigdem. Her place is beautiful-just as the pictures show-and she was a gracious and friendly host.
Easily the best location in Kailua. One block from "downtown" with excellent food options, one block from the uber-touristy boots and kemos, and a few blocks from the beach pictured in the listing, I got lucky booking it not knowing the area beforehand. Cigdem provided helpful maps of spots nearby, and even drove me to the airport (saving me a ton of time and money)!
I took advantage of the on site pool and hot tub-a great perk. On the 17th floor, the view is excellent. Waking up to the sun rising over the mountains cannot be beat. (Especially since she had a nice little breakfast waiting for me!)
The reservation was canceled 12 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
The apartment is just as it appears in the photos, very roomy and clean - not to mention the gorgeous view! Cigdem was extremely welcoming of my boyfriend and I into her home providing maps, information and fresh beach towels! I loved having the use of a full-sized fridge and a fully equipped kitchen which you often don't get in a vacation rental unit! Also, Kailua and Lanikai are beautiful beaches, a nice getaway from the craziness of Waikiki. :)
Cigdem was a most gracious and delightful hostess. She was thorough and diligent about the details but not overbearing. Her condo is immaculate and comfortable with all of the amenities. The building is equally so. The area was in the center of everything there in Kailua, but the unit was quiet and relaxing.
Anyone looking for a beautiful and serene atmosphere that is close to everything, as well as a great value for the money then you have come to the right place; and, you will not meet an anymore engaging hostess.
We are happy to give our highest recommendation to Cigdem’s wonderful hospitality and home. We stayed in multiple venues during our trip to Oahu and this was by far the best. The flat is beautiful, welcoming and boasts an incredible view. The location is fantastic and Cigdem was wonderful in giving us advice on local attractions. Additionally we felt free to do our own thing and immediately comfortable with coming and going as we pleased. This was our first experience with airbnb and we could not be happier. If you’re looking to get out of the saturated Waikiki area or simply looking for a bit of time away, we highly recommend this accommodation. Enjoy!
Cee is a lovely person. She is incredibly warm, perceptive and loves poetry and literature. Fernando has fun practicing how to make carb-free breakfasts for Cee and we had fun sharing different favorite places in NY with her. We both look forward to taking her up on her offer to visit Hawaii soon.
Chee was a great guest. She was quiet and considerate and treated our home like it was her own, keeping things nice and tidy. She even played with our pets and we had great conversations. We enjoyed having her stay with us. She is weld med back anytime and when we visit Hawaii I hope too see her again.
Chee is a beautiful human being and an awesome guest. She's very respectful and great to talk to.
Chee was an awesome guest. She is very respectful, polite, funny and genuinely thoughtful - She even got me a gift for my bday:) I enjoyed hosting her, and the time we spend visiting the city and chatting together. If you get a chance to host her, do not hesitate!
Cigdem was a great guest! She was thoughtful and friendly! I highly recommend her.
