1 Bedroom Studio on water with amazing views
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 am respectful of your vacation and your privacy so I try to leave you alone. However, I am here if you need me for anything!!
Lori purchased this Studio in 1991
Why Lori 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 enjoy the opportunity to meet people from all over the world and they subsidize my income .It is so expensive to live in Hawaii ,especially if you are single!! 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 1.5 miles away is Kailua beach and Lanikai. My property has all the peace and quiet but alot going on just down the street.Please be respectful of my neighbors and our street and our beautiful island.
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.
I have 2 dogs on the property
Children not allowed
Minimum age of primary renter:25
Please see the rental agreement for house rules. To summarize: the studio is for no more than 2 people. Noise should be kept at a minimum. I live in a very quiet neighborhood and we want to keep it that way. Please be respectful of the property and the studio.

Great property and Location
As described and Lori was a great host
We had such a great time at Lori’s property. She was very understanding with a series of delayed and canceled flights. We used the AC while we were there and it was certainly worth the extra money since it was unseasonably hot. I’d definitely recommend staying here!
Just the right space. Just the right location. The property is lovely and everything you need is there.
Had a wonderful weeklong stay with my 17-year old daughter! Accommodations were clean and comfortable. Not having AC was not as bad as I thought it would be as Lori provided several fans. In addition, the weather in Kailua seems to be more cloudy/rainy than the west side but that didn’t bother us that much!
The location was perfect for us because we knew we weren’t planning on doing a lot of site-seeing. We just wanted to be close to the beach (me) and also have a private space to relax away from tourists! It’s still very close to Waimanalo Beach which is one of our favorites!
The pool was lovely and refreshing, and there are loungers and an umbrella. However, it was a little disappointing to find out once we arrived that it was only useable between 9am-5pm. The hot tub was not available for use at all.
Lori is extremely warm and made us feel very welcome - as well as her pups! Sweet dogs that kept us company as we left our two dogs at home and were missing them terribly!
Overall, our stay was fabulous! I would definitely recommend Lori’s place!
Home away from home
The studio was very nice, well appointed and very peaceful. A few steps away is the pool and a few more steps away is the dock where you can sit and enjoy the view of the lake. The private entrance on the side of the house and the bamboo wall separating the Lana’i with the studio’s little sitting area make you feel secluded even though the studio is attached to the main house. The dogs are great greeters and are super friendly. Walk out of the studio and they come up and greet you. All in all the studio was very peaceful and was a home away from home. Mahalo for sharing your studio with my wife and I.
Thank you so much!
Very Quiet, Clean & Cozy. Good Location & Wonderful Owner !
I really enjoyed my laid-back stay in Kailua.
The studio is quiet & nice and located conveniently.
Lori is really nice and kind.
Dogs and a cat are also calm and friendly.
Everything is perfect for my relaxing stay.
Kailua is a fun small beach town. It has grown over the years and has become very popular. There are lots of fun shopping places and many great cafes and eating spots. The beach is very close and you must go there and take a walk in the morning or evening.
