The Oahu Alternative Lodging Association (OALA) is a properly organized non-profit civic organization formed by concerned residents of the City & County of Honolulu, island of Oahu, Hawaii for the purpose of organizing discussions about maintaining a viable alternative lodging industry. We view alternative lodging as a sustainable small business model that fosters & promotes economic diversity among our communities. OALA encourages & supports the implementation of reasonable & civically responsible permitting of bed & breakfasts & transient vacation units (alternative lodging) throughout Oahu. OALA encourages the development of a strong & well-regulated alternative lodging industry that will attract visitors & generally promote the economic welfare of our communities.


We’re Involved

We are citizens united for a shared economy and encourage commerce and industry on Oahu, attracting visitors, and generally promoting the economic welfare of our communities.


Membership & Support
