A wonderful place! Location is the perfect combination of Shibuya pop, Daikanyama classical, and Nakameguro jazz. Interior design is suave but open and relaxed. Thekla is the perfect host and guide to Tokyo many marvels and delights. Highly recommended!!

Thekla's place was a dream. I stayed at a few different Airbnbs during my trip to Japan and this was my favorite by far! Check-in: Thekla sent over detailed directions and key pickup instructions and made sure that we got in okay. Location: Super convenient! About a 10 min walk to Shibuya station so it's close to all the good things (food, shopping, nightlife, etc.) and easy to navigate to other popular neighborhoods (Harajuku, Omotesando, Shinjuku, Ginza, Roppongi, etc.). The apartment is right next to a bunch of great cafes, bars, and restaurants. Apartment: Beautiful, one-of-a-kind apartment. Custom built and designed by and for an architect, the space is a rare find. I loved the space so much I wanted to stay in all day. Very clean, well-furnished, and super spacious for such a central location (full kitchen, dining table, living room, shower/bathroom, toilet room). You'll have everything you need and more. Host: Thekla is awesome! We got along really well and had such a blast staying with her. As a host she was really thoughtful and made sure we felt comfortable during our stay. Thekla also has in-depth knowledge about Japanese architecture/art/culture as a phd student who has lived there for 5 years; we gained a lot of perspective about what it's like to live in Japan. We also got the chance to just hang out with Thekla at the apartment and she is just an overall super cool, intelligent, insightful, and funny person. If I'm ever back in Tokyo I would definitely try to stay at Thekla's place again and I highly recommend it to anyone who is interested.

Thekla is a wonderful host. Very generous and welcoming and sharing her live home with us. We couldn't have asked for anything better and would highly recommend staying here. The apartment is big, beautifully designed and light and modern. A real pleasure to stay here
