About Lori Robinson

I am a born and raised Hawaii woman. I grew up on the island of Kauai and went to school here in Hawaii and college in Wisconsin. My family lives on Kauai and here in Kailua. I love the outdoors,my children and grandkids,animals, dancing, traveling, stand up paddling, wine,the beach and working out. I manage a private fitness center in down town Honolulu. I live on the property. I have 2 dogs who are very nice. Rest assured, if you don't care for dogs, they can reside away from your space as long as they can come out occasionally.

Lori Robinson purchased this studio in 1991

Why Lori Robinson chose Enchanted Lake

I bought this property to live in a community that was child friendly with good schools and community. Now kids are grown and have their own homes. I love this property because it's on a cul de sac and the neighborhood is quiet. I know my neighbors. It is on Enchanted Lake, which makes it a wonderful,peaceful,and beautiful piece of property. Just a mile away, Kailua town is a small yet bustling town with lots of fun restaurants and shops. Just 4 miles away is Kailua beach and Lanikai. My property has all the peace and quiet but alot going on just down the street.

What makes this studio unique

This location is on the Enchanted Lakes. Although you cannot swim in the lake, you can kayak or stand up paddle. The view is gorgeous and resort like.

Paradise in paradise

  • 5 of 5

This place is amazing. Lori is wonderful. The studio is spotless and stocked with all you need. We were greeted with fresh flowers, coffee, and other Hawaiian goodies. The grounds are gorgeous and the lake so beautiful and peaceful! The dogs, Snoop and Dezi are sweethearts. The location is perfect. Even though this place is so peaceful it is a very short walk to town with nice restaurants and a Farmers Market. Thank you so much Lori for sharing your home with us. We will be back!

Attractive studio with a peaceful and beautiful view

  • 5 of 5

Loved all aspects of the studio but the bathroom was amazing! Felt it was our private backyard and pool. Lori provided Hawaiian coffee and nuts AND pretty coasters for us to bring some Kailua home with us. We will come back!

Great Stay in Kailua

  • 5 of 5

We just came back from a wonderful stay in Kailua! Lori was kind and responsive to any questions we had and also the property itself was gorgeous. Her dogs were friendly and quiet. Perfect location, close to Kailua town and safeway/target and also the farmer's market on Saturday's. I took a run to Kailua Beach and walked in to town several times (about 10-15 minutes). Thanks again Lori!

Loved this studio!

  • 5 of 5

This studio was the perfect place to stay in Kailua! Lori was a fantastic host. She was so kind and accommodating. Her two dogs, Desi and Snoops were wonderful. They were so friendly and we enjoyed being greeted by them! I highly recommend this studio to anyone looking for a place to stay on Oahu! It was comfortable, quiet, clean, and the views of the lake were unbeatable. The location is so central to everything - beaches, hiking, restaurants, and stores. We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay on our honeymoon. We would stay here again in a heartbeat!! Lori wasn't intrusive, but was so sweet and genuine every time we stumbled into her. She encompasses the true aloha spirit. Mahalo Lori! We hope to be back in the future!!

The Get Away from the Get Away

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I wanted to unwind and relax...away from the usual Waikiki crowds. We wanted a quaint place to call home for a short while, allowing us to visit friends and non-tourist places in and around Oahu. Lori and her babies, Snoops and Desi were great hosts. We felt at home from the second we arrived and found it hard to leave. We will definitely stay here again on future visits to Hawaii. Mahalo.
