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 Kailua

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.

Excellent location for a quiet getaway for two. We enjoyed relaxing on the dock as we wound down from the days' activities - and Desi & Snoops were perfect companions!

Mahalo & Aloha!

A Charming Retreat

  • 4 of 5

This very attractive studio is perfect for one or two people. It is attached to the owner's home. It is clean, comfortable, and has a nice big bathroom. The studio opens onto a private back yard that faces a pretty lake. Close to town, a lively Thursday-night marketplace, and good restaurants. The owner is very friendly and helpful.

Wonderful Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

A great vacation getaway!! Beautifully appointed, convenient to nearby grocery stores, drug stores, and restaurants, and just about any other store you might need. Fantastic views of the lake and mountains and easy drives to the Kailua or Bellows Beaches. We recommend this beautiful home to anyone interested in a quiet location to distress from the pace of the everyday work environment. Lori is a wonderful host and was anxious to make our stay enjoyable. This is our 2nd VRBO rental in Kailua and we would come back in a heart-beat! A diamond nestled in the middle of Kailua!

Everything it was said to be.

  • 5 of 5

We spent 10 days and had a lovely experience . Studio was within walking distance to grocery store, several good restaurants, and coffee shops. Landlady was friendly but did not impose. We would definitely recommend this rental.

Perfect vacation!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived Lori was ready to help us. A wonderful basket of Hawaiian specialties was waiting for us and she had even stocked the frig with food for breakfast. Our living area was spic and span clean, the bed was very comfortable, a huge bathroom and a pool that Esther Williams would have enjoyed made the stay in Kailua divine. Beautiful sunrises over the lake every morning . Book early- this space is a gem, Lori is exceptional as a host and the town and beaches of Kailua will keep you happy! P.S. The dogs are an added bonus. They are the official greeters and are so welcoming. Smoke and Mary

Fantastic Place

  • 5 of 5

I had the pleasure of staying here for 4 nts, while on a business trip. Lori is a wonderful host and her (2) dogs are 2 of the best behaved dogs I have met. They were a treat to see everyday. Her place is very nice, quiet and conveniently located in Kailua. This will always be my first option on future business trips back to Hawaii.
