About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

E komo mai [Welcome]!

Our goal is to pass on the “aloha spirit” of Hawaii and make our home your home. We provide a full collection of indoor and outdoor items (less to lug during your travels!). This includes outdoor gear like snorkeling equipment, surfboards, beach chairs and towels, golf clubs, and more. Inside, we stock the cabinets and shelves with everything from shampoos and lotions to spices and condiments to dish washing and laundry soaps. And for the keiki [kids], we stow away pack and play cribs, a baby swing, bouncer, Bumbo, nursing pillow, high chair, booster seat, umbrella strollers, jogging stroller, toys, games, and puzzles.

When you arrive, a welcome basket will be waiting. For this “Aloha starter kit” we collect the finest Hawaiian goodies like Kona coffee, dark chocolate-covered macadamia nuts and fresh pineapple. Nothing kicks off a Hawaiian vacation like a cup of Kona coffee and chocolate mac nuts enjoyed out on the lanai (balcony) with all of Honolulu spread out before you!

We live in the same lovely, residential neighborhood as Ocean View Waikiki and are available to answer questions, give suggestions, and take care of anything you need during your stay.

Ocean View Waikiki sleeps up to 10 people in 4 bedrooms and the living room with 1 king, 3 queen and 2 twin beds (that can combine to make another king).

But if you have a larger group, please let us know! We can house up to 36 guests by combining this home with 3 of our nearby rentals, including the estate home next door, called Ocean View Diamond Head (sleeps 8), and a two-level home ½ mile away, with Ocean View Kahala on the lower level, which sleeps 10, and Ocean View Honolulu on the upper level, which sleeps 8. We’ve hosted many a large family reunion or wedding party using varied combinations of our rentals.

Save a bit of money by taking advantage of Ocean View Waikiki’s freshly remodeled kitchen, immaculate Weber grill on the lanai, and adjacent city-view dining table (seats up to 10 with plenty of room to spare). Enjoy each other’s company well into the night, as the city lights illuminate the sky. If you visit during a full moon, the scene will take your breath away! Rainbows stretching over the view are common, and so are fireworks popping over the city twice a week—sink into the seven-person hot tub for the island’s best front row seat!

We didn’t skimp on modern technology, so you can keep plugged in for your vacation if you choose, including broadband and WiFi Internet, 4 big screen LCD TVs with DVD players (in the living room all 4 bedrooms), a wide selection of on-demand movies, telephone with free long distance, and a CD collection that’s yours to browse and use.

We make green living a priority, too, taking advantage of Hawaii’s plentiful sun with solar-heated water and solar panels to power the home.

When it comes time to explore, we are close to many of Oahu’s attractions. We’re 2 miles from Waikiki and Waikiki Beach, 2 miles from Diamond Head for the hikers in your group, 20 minutes from historic Pearl Harbor, and 45 minutes from the famous North Shore surfing beaches.

Feel free to contact us with questions or booking information using the contact information above.

We hope to see you and your loved ones in Hawaii, and we encourage you to book soon—our calendar is quickly filling!

Mahalo nui loa A hui hou kakou [Thank you very much, and until we meet again

About Lara Robinson

Hello! We both were born and raised in California, fell in love with the aloha spirit of the islands and moved to Hawaii to raise our two precious children. We are so happy to open our vacation home to visitors and share our little slice of paradise!

We chose to buy two vacation rentals in St. Louis Heights on Oahu because the views are the best on the island, the tradewinds keep the home comfortably cool and the proximity to town makes the location ideal.

Why Lara Robinson chose Honolulu

We fell in love with the gorgeous ocean and Diamond Head views from the grand lanai (balcony), living room, kitchen, dining room and bedrooms.

What makes this house unique

You’ll feel like you’re living in a big lighthouse at our 4-bedroom 3-bath home, thanks to its high ridgeline location and huge walls of glass overlooking the Honolulu skyline, the ocean, and Diamond Head’s commanding profile.

Guestbook comments from the manager

This has been the most delightful experience of a lifetime. Staying in your home while in this beautiful, breathtaking land of Hawaii was truly a blessing we'll never forget. When we came here for our daughter's wedding we truly arrived in paradise. Your hospitality was so very special. We can't thank you enough. Aloha and God bless you - Brian and Merry Joy and family, Ellsworth, Wisconsin

A perfect home for a large family!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great vacation and this very comfortable, clean home made the entire experience even better! The evening sunsets sitting in the hot tub or in the living area are grand. The home is located close to everything in Waikiki. The van was perfect for our large family. All of the snorkel gear and beach toys were nice as well. We had a few calls to the owner and they were prompt with getting back with us and were more than pleasant to work with.

This was our first stay at a Home Away. We were pleasantly surprised how great the experience was!

Thank you!

Great home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

Glen & Lara are the most responsive owners that we have ever worked with! So refreshing to receive prompt responses to inquiries, regardless of the time. This home was perfect for our family of 10. We would heartily recommend this to anyone who wants to be away from the hubbub of down town, but still have easy access to the beaches, restaurants and shopping. Quyana cakneq for your hospitality. Mahalo!

Everything we wanted !!

  • 5 of 5

Our hosts were very accommodating , The house was perfect for our 8 adults / 2 babies and a toddler. Lots of room and privacy when needed. All the beds were comfortable , and we never ran out of hot water !!We cooked lots and everything we needed was there. 12 days and never got tired of that View !! Watched fireworks from the hot tub .This house definitely was the best choice . And to have the use of the new Honda mini van put it over the top. I have already recommended this rental to friends,

Thanks to Glen & Lara

Loved it! Had an amazing week!! Views were outstanding.

  • 5 of 5

There were nine in my family stay for the week. The home was nice and clean, a very lovely gift basket awaited us, and everyone had space to relax by themselves or we could be all together. My young adult children were impressed with the home - and that's saying quite a bit. We enjoyed the patio and hot tub lots. Beds were very comfy. We even cooked our Thanksgiving meal there - the kitchen was well equipped. As soon as I'd think I needed a dish or serving plate or meat thermometer I'd open a drawer or cabinet and it was there. I communicated with Glenn on several occasions prior to and during our stay and he was always accommodating and easy to reach. It was a wonderful week, and very hard to leave - a big part of that was due to the comfort of the home. We made some great memories there. I can recommend highly. Once again, the view was incredible!

Awesome Holiday for the Whole Family, Young and Ol

  • 5 of 5

This property was exactly as advertised. No unpleasant surprises at all. House was clean and well maintained. Beds were comfortable, and nice bedding. We cooked in a lot and plenty of crockery, pots and utensils. Welcome basket was awesome and much appreciated. Internet was top notch. Hot tub was used daily and fantastic view over Waikiki at night. BBQ was also great. Lara and Glen were extremely responsive throughout the booking process and responded almost immediately despite me being on the other side of the world. I have already recommended this property to friends who are travelling to Oahu next year. Thanks Lara and Glen for a wonderful family holiday.

We had an outstanding stay at Ocean View Oahu!

  • 5 of 5

The property was everything we wanted it to be and more! Where to start: The BBQ Grill was professional grade, the hot tub was PERFECT!, the property's proximity to beaches and restaurants was very convenient, the kitchen was put to intense use as we made many meals and it came through with flying colors!, internet was great and we even used the house printer. The house AC was top notch, sleeping quarters were excellent, the vista from the outdoor deck/hot tub was magnificent and the neighborhood was comfortable and safe. We would stay here again in a heartbeat. We spoke several times with Glen during our stay and he was always easy to reach and helpful to talk with. This was an outstanding property!
