Overview

Oahu Studio Rental Photos and Description

Enjoy the breath taking beach with our fully furnished one-bedroom hideaway.

Enjoy the secluded breath taking beach from our fully furnished VERY LARGE STUDIO, a hideaway for groups from 1-3. Relaxed, casual beach home living, just steps away to Lanikai’s heavenly reef-protected waters and natural stretch of white sand beach, with an amazing sunrise and moonrise of one of the world’s top beaches. Lola’s loft is a quiet relaxing and peaceful place you cant imagine anywhere else you should be., except at Lola’s enjoying paradise. A fifteen-minute stroll along the road gets you to Kailua Beach Park where World-class windsurfing and sail boarding happens. . For coffee lovers, you can take a stroll thru Kailua Beach park to Kalapawai Market where they serve a large variety of great coffees.

Restaurants and shopping are five minutes away in Kailua town. Right from the loft you can snorkel, swim, kayak, surf, 4 man canoe, bike ride, one or tandem or just relax on the beach. Take a guided canoe tour of Flat Island and the Mokolua Islands, from one of the household members. Conveniently located for hiking, and golf vacations, Honolulu, Waikiki, and the airport, just a 30-minute drive.

Ideal for your romantic getaway, honeymoon, or just because. The loft was completely remodeled in 2012. By the owner, who is one of Lanikai’s most amazing contractors. We can accommodate from one to 3 adults or 2 adults with two children. It is a contemporary Hawaiian style with bamboo flooring and a beach house feel to it. The back is for outdoor meals and barbecuing. The one bedroom, one bathroom interior also has a living area with a kitchenette everything you should need. The kitchenette is separated from the rest of the room, a washer dyer for your exclusive use, central air and extremely private.

Short Visit, but fun time.

  • 3 of 5

Lola's Loft was clean and as described. We would recommend this property to others but we would inform them that although the loft was near the beach, there is no view of the water. The beach is only about 1/2 block walk. There is a very pretty view of the mountains.

Although very nice, I thought the property manager wasn't the best at communications. Sometimes I had to resend questions or requests more than once.

We were very busy with events so we weren't in the loft often. Parking is tough, if you leave for a short while, usually the spot where you were parked that was right in front of the Lola's loft gate would be taken by someone going to the beach. We saw in many other locations in Lanikai that other owners/renters used a few traffic cones to secure their parking spots.I am not sure if that is legal or not, but a good solution. The lock to the gate was broken, it looks like someone vandalized it by kicking or pushing it in...this was a bit unsettling. When we arrived, the unit was too hot and it took all afternoon and evening to try to cool the place down. It would have been nice for someone to turn the air conditioning on early when they know renters are arriving for the day. Just leaving some windows open did not cool unit enough. Internet, as others have said, is not great. These things being said, I can't give this unit 5 stars. These are simple fixes for the property manager and/or owners, which would make this unit a strong 4.5 to 5 star unit. The furnishings are very nice, the washer and dryer in the unit are a bonus and it is a good location! I thought Lola's Loft was overall a very, very nice unit.

Owner's Response: Aloha, I want to thank you for the review and extensive input. Lola’s is a great location, with many extra perks. I’m hoping you had a chance to use the kayaks and snorkel gear, in Lanikai’s beautiful waters. It is relaxing and soothing for the soul. We have taken advantage of your recommendations by making sure the internet works and the ac is on before people arrive. I even got the updated phone app for my phone connection with VRBO, so I won’t loose contact and miss anyone. Thank you so much and I hope to see you again! Mahalo Margret P.S. Gate is fixed and like new

Great location - great hosts!!

  • 5 of 5

What can we say but thank you to such an amazing host. The owner's were just awesome and the studio was comfortable and clean. It is small but very nice and there is nothing like being able to walk to Lanika Beach in under 90 seconds.

Lola's Hale

  • 3 of 5

We enjoyed our stay, the listing states one bedroom and this must be clarified that it's a studio and it is located upstairs directly next to the main house. If you are a light sleeper the refrigerator will keep you up, it is extremely loud and you can hear the owners. Check the unit before setting your stuff down, as I found dog feces under the bed.

Owner's Response: Aloha, We take pride in the cleanliness of Lola’s. We were mortified to hear that Lola got in after we cleaned and did her business. The rug under the bed has been replaced. As for the noise level, the owner has added soundproofing around the door to minimize the noise and fixed noise from fridge. We would like to offer you a free night stay for a future stay. Please accept our sincere apologies. Mahalo Margret

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

Lola's Hale was exactly as shown in the pictures. It was very comfortable, clean and attention to detail in every way. I would highly recommend this home to my friends and relatives.

The owner provided beach chairs, and the use of kayaks.

The beach was a 2 minute walk and beautiful. The home has air condition which was much appreciated. We fell in love with Lanikai and will diffentley rent this home again.

Beautiful property!

  • 4 of 5

This is a beautiful property located within walking distance of the beach! The decor is fun and uplifting and the unit is very comfortable!! Bedding was soft, clean and towels were abundant!! We love the fact there was A/C as we visited during a heatwave and it was a must!

The only complaints we had was the parking is difficult at times! Rent a small car! There are a lot of people who will park in your spot as you are located near the beach. Also there was some confusion with the kayaks, the listing indicates they are present however upon our arrival we noticed they were actually available only for an additional charge! $40/day :( we ended up renting paddle boards instead as we prefer those since we were paying anyways (the pictured ones are the owners and not for your use)

Despite the setbacks we really enjoyed our stay and would consider renting this unit again!!
