About Roger Lane

I was born in Honolulu, my family has been in Hawaii for 129 years. My Grandmother was the first telephone operator at the Royal Hawaiian Hotel in 1927.I have family on all the islands.What I love most about Hawaii is the local people,they are so caring.And when people come here on vacation, they are in a relaxed mood, so we all enjoy our selves in one of the most beautiful places on earth.

Roger Lane purchased this apartment in 2004

Why Roger Lane chose Honolulu

I bought this apartment for my parents and rent it out when they are not here, so my guests are like family, most come back every year.

I like it because it is in the perfect location, on the beach, and a short walk to Waikiki.

The Colony Surf is the best managed building I have ever seen,24 hour staffing and it has one of Hawaii's best dining locations 'Michele's' on the ground floor, ocean view.

I have an apartment just like this for my self in The Colony Surf also.

What makes this apartment unique

I personally like the private beach for swimming and Kapiolani Park across the street for walking and running.It is soooo great to wake up to birds singing and the sound of waves.

I also love walking barefoot along the beach into Waikiki, where I can eat any kind of food in a casual style.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Rogers Apartment. The suite was well appointed and very comfortable, and the owner's Oahu tips were very helpful. While staying here you are no more than a quick walk to Waikiki Beach, the zoo and the aquarium. And it only takes ten to fifteen minutes by bus to reach Diamond Head or Ala Moana Shopping Center. It is an ideal location at a reasonable price and we highly recommend it.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

The ocean view studio at the colony surf is the best location in the Waikiki area. The unite is nicely furnished to accommodate your needs,laundry in the basement. Your at the quiet cool end of Waikiki under diamond head so you feel like a local not a tourist. Beach is great and the park is right there. A great place to vacation

Just the perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with At Roger's place for just under 6weeks. Wonderfully located, extra jumbo studio. Nicely decorated and well equipped kitchen. Parking spot provided was ideal. Beautiful views of Diamond Head and the ocean. Breezes blowing thru the apartment most of the time. Quiet. Large park area of Kapiolani Park just accross the road with music at least one night each weekend somewhere in the park. Great wail king, jogging, yoga, Tai chi, each morning. Waikiki close easy walk but far enough away that the din is absent.Beach in front of the Colony Surf was vacant most mornings, except weekends? Can't go wrong with this place for an ideal getaway on Oahu.

True Paradise Found

  • 5 of 5

I wanted to stay in a part of Waikiki that felt like the old Waikiki I grew up with. This is the perfect apartment to stay in for many reasons. First, its location. It is away from the "jungle" of shops, crowds and noise, yet an easy walk to them. Secondly, the double views of Diamond Head and the ocean are breathtaking! I loved checking out the scenery, sky, and stars at night. Finally, the apartment was so well stocked that it was apparent that a lot of thought went into making sure we had EVERYTHING we needed to enjoy our stay.

This was the best vacation apartment we've ever stayed in. You will love it too!

Best Value on the Beach

  • 5 of 5

Private beach and private parking stall, immaculately furnished apartment, and all within 10 minute of the frenzy of Waikiki, yet super quiet location.

I booked this for my parents during their recent stay. It’s great for seniors who like a safe and easy place to get around. It was nice to see the smile on their faces when we came to see them. They had a wonderful time. I sure will book this again for their next visit.

Thank you

Amazing Apartment on the Beach

  • 5 of 5

This is one of the best apartments I have ever rented and I have rented many. The views of the ocean and Diamond Head are to die for. Roger was great to deal with and the front desk staff in the building were so friendly and helpful.

The apartment is very quiet and peaceful and spacious . There was a wonderful cross breeze so it was never hot. It was very clean, tropical and thoughtfully designed.

The unit is well stocked and included beach chairs and beach towels, even a coffee grinder.

I would highly recommend staying here to my family and friends and will definitely stay in this unit next time I am in Oahu. Very enjoyable and relaxing place to stay!!
