Hey, I'm Laura!
Honolulu, Hawaii, United States · Member since November 2012

We have been hosting both U.S. and international students & guests in our home for over 10 years and love it! I am a joyful, warm and welcoming host. I grew up in Newton, Massachusetts near Boston. I am a retired Navy Commander, College Administrator & Yoga Teacher. I have lived in Honolulu since 1999 and love the Hawaiian culture, music and way of life. I am an excellent resource for touring Oahu and all the islands. There are lots of guide and resource books in the cottage to help you find your way around and enjoy the island. I enjoy walking, yoga, tennis, theater, singing, reading, weaving scarves and writing. I am happy to share any and all of these activities with you. We live in a large house next to the Kalanikai cottage. We often have music and hula evenings in our garden with our friends who we are happy to introduce you to. My favorite travel destinations in the U.S. include the Boston area & Cape Cod, Northern California and New York City and overseas I enjoy the Scottish islands, any where in France, Tuscany, Italy, Greek Islands, & Turkey. I speak French pretty fluently and can speak a little Italian. My husband, Tim, is also a retired Naval officer and now works for Hawaiian Electric Company. We have a 25 year old daughter who lives in upstate New York and a 17 year old daughter who is a high school senior bound for anew York Univeristy in the fall of 2014.
My motto is Live, Love and Laugh every day!
