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.

We thoroughly enjoyed our month long stay at Rogers Colony Surf unit in Gold Coast Waikiki. It was HEAVENLY for us away from all the activity in the heart of Waikiki. Colony Surf is located in the Gold Coast which is the quiet part of Waikiki and yet only a fifteen minute walk from all of the beach activity, shopping, dinning, and entertainment that Waikiki offers.

The unit itself has all of the essentials and comforts needed to enjoy pleasant vacation in Hawaii including a great view of both Diamond Head and the vast Pacific Ocean. The kitchen is well stocked and even had a coffee grinder, which was an added bonus. His attentiveness to us was appreciated. The dishwasher was a must for any extended vacation. Michel's, located in the building was an added bonus.

Summer Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were blessed to spend an entire month in this beautiful Colony Surf condo. Everything about it was comfortable and homey. The entire building is maintained around the clock, and the front desk personnel are incredibly accommodating. Our parking space was very convenient and easy to get to. Laundry facilities were inexpensive and easy. We cooked some meals and took easy walks to restaurants close by. The best part about this condo is the location. It's close enough to enjoy the Waikiki lifestyle and just far enough away to avoid the traffic and noise. The beach in front of the Colony Surf is beautiful and not crowded. Our only wish might have been air conditioning, but the windows open to allow a wonderful breeze. We would definitely rent this unit again!

Amazing View!! Great place for Vacation in OAHU!

  • 5 of 5

We have a stayed for a month, me and my partner went to Oahu to Surf with SUPs. The location is perfect for it.

The description and photos of the advertise are accurate, the apartment has a great view, easy to clean, and properly maintained.

We didn't have any issue along the month. The building manager John and his partner gave us all the time a great attention to our needs. I probably go back next year and for sure will recommend this apt to everyone willing to go to Hawaii.

We didn't rent a car, we bought two bicycles in less than 200 usd for both and went everywhere with them, easy to park anywhere. The building is close to everything. Waikiki is just 5 min walk. You have lots of restaurants, groceries stores, shopping, and also the building has a restaurant below (Michels) another in Otani hotel next to it, and if you get a pass, there is also a Canoe Club with a restaurant on the right.

For SURE this offer is much more attractive than any hotel. You feel at home, you can cook what you like. If you don't like cleaning, you can contract a maid service. And for laundry the building has machines that cost 2.50 usd to wash and dry.

The temperature is 26 Celsius degrees all day long.

Paradise! Didn't want to leave...

  • 5 of 5

We spent one unforgettable month at Roger's condo, and could have stayed for several more. During our time there, we enjoyed wonderful evenings with the entire front of the condo open to the ocean breeze and sunsets. On Friday nights, there are sail boat races and fireworks to enjoy. As our time at the unit started to come to an end, we booked an unforgettable dinner at Michele's, which is right in the building. We sincerely cannot wait to come back, and just hope we can stay longer!

Perfect winter vacation

  • 5 of 5

The Colony Surf is in an ideal location. One can easily walk to Waikiki and enjoy its entertainment and restaurant venues, yet you can easily slip into the quieter Kamaaina lifestyle. Kapiolani park is across the street for walks and running, your private beach is immediately downstairs and shares the beach with an exclusive Canoe Club. Walks to the Diamond Head neighborhoods is always pleasant, quiet and full of beautiful homes, plumeria and parrots. A car is not needed. We walked mostly, but took DaBus to Lanikai a couple times. Da Bus is easy to use, cheap and ALWAYS available. It stops right next door and goes everywhere in Oahu.

Roger's condo is clean and amply stocked. The views from your window are remarkable. Whales are frequently seen spouting and breaking the surface during the winter months. The queen bed is comfortable and the sheets luxurious. The laundry is downstairs, the machines work well and are seldom in use.

Roger's pots and pans are from Williams Sonoma and all the cabinets and appliances are new (including a dishwasher). We ate at home mostly. We were there two months and became quite familiar with the nearby safeway. It is 2 miles away; but, that too can be an adventure to conquer! However, there are unique, and inexpensive local restaurants nearby. I recommend the Southside Grill for Fish Tacos on Tuesday. Also, try the Diamond Head Grill and Deli on the road around Diamond Head. Don't miss Kapono at Duke's on Sunday!!! He is legendary. There is an ABC on every corner and a convenience store next to the Colony. I hope you sense how much we enjoyed ourselves. We are return guests like most at the Colony. Openings are hard to find at the Colony in the winter months!

We will return in 2017. I give this property my highest recommendation!

"Dream" Condo

  • 5 of 5

My review is a little different than most; so before I start I will confirm what others have already written – Roger Lane is a very gracious and accommodating host. His condo is exactly like the pictures – only better; as I will explain. There I was, sitting in Rogers’ condo the first morning of our stay there. The windows are slid open the whole width of the unit, letting the warm trade winds softly flow thru-out the room – it’s still dark outside. I’m up early because of the time change. With Kona coffee in hand; I’m curled up on the long bench window seat; watching my beautiful Diamond Head sleep. The stars are still out and the only sound I hear are the waves flowing into shore just off to my right. I sit quietly and watch as the sun slowly awakens my Diamond Head. An overwhelming sense of peace flows over me. The magic of this island, this condo, this view is so healing for my soul. That is why I say it is so much more than the pictures. Thank-you Roger for sharing your little piece of paradise.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for staying with us Sandy, I truly enjoyed having you and Pius as our guests. I wish everyone could enjoy the experience you had, that is why I love providing such beautiful space, making people happy is the Spirit of Aloha. My great grandmother ( who came to Hawaii in 1885) always told me as a kid that "Guests are new friends if you care about them". Aloha my new friends, Roger
