E komo mai [Welcome]!
Step onto our wraparound lanai (balcony) with a Hot Tub, inhale the sweet scent of tropical flowers, wiggle your toes in the grass, and greet an amazing, elevated view of Honolulu’s modern skyline and Diamond Head’s distinctive volcanic silhouette.
(*to comply with City and County of Honolulu zoning requirements, we allow only one rental agreement per 30 day period*)
Keep the view close from coffee on the lanai at dawn, to dinner shared at the outdoor table at sunset, to movie night with the family piled on leather sofas in the living area with the Honolulu skyline glittering in front of you.
Ocean View Diamond Head can host up to 12 guests, with 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, plus two convertible couch beds. 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 Waikiki (sleeps 10), 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. It’s a perfect option for weddings and family reunions!
We’re only 2 miles from Honolulu’s bustle, Waikiki’s gorgeous beach, and Diamond Head. We recommend a car for stress-free transportation around Oahu.
When it’s time to hit the beach or the golf course, we provide all of the gear you need, like golf clubs, beach chairs, beach towels, snorkeling equipment and more. We supply all the indoor necessities, too: from shampoos and lotions to spices and condiments to dish washing and laundry soaps. For little ones, we provide a baby swing, a bouncer, a Bumbo, a high chair, and more. If there’s anything you require, let us know!
The gentle “aloha” spirit of Hawaii captured our hearts, and we strive to pass that feeling on to our guests. We live nearby and want to ensure your stay is exceptional. Most of all, we want to provide a spotless, comfortable place to stay that feels like home—but with perks to remind you you’re on vacation.
When you arrive, a welcome basket will be waiting, brimming with Hawaiian treats like chocolate-covered macadamia nuts, Kona coffee, and fresh, local pineapple to get you started.
Fire up the Hot Tub and Weber Genesis grill on the lanai and sear your pineapple alongside fresh seafood or vegetables (there’s a market just ½ mile away), then enjoy at the outdoor dining table with a view that beats those found at any restaurant.
Stick around for the twice-weekly fireworks show! You don’t even have to leave the lanai to claim front row seats as fireworks pop against the dazzling Honolulu skyline. The kids can stretch out on the grass with a bowl of ice cream while the adults enjoy a glass or wine or a cup of after-dinner Kona coffee on one of a dozen garden lounge chairs.
Each of the 3 bedrooms provides a queen-sized bed and a flat-screen television . One bedroom is located downstairs with a in suite bathroom for additional privacy. Three full bathrooms ensure you don’t have to fight over sink space or shower time!
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.
To make your trip a little easier and more cost efficient, we'd like to offer one of our own cars-via a car-sharing service-as an easy alternative. We love renting homes to our guests, and figured, why not our cars, too?
We have our own Robinson-family fleet of vehicles, which includes a 2016 LX seven seater Honda Odyssey minivan dedicated to OVDH through a car-sharing service, called Turo, the unlimited use of this van is included in your quoted pricing.
Feel free to contact us with questions or booking information using the Email Manager button to the right. We hope to see you 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
Year Purchased: 2009 About the owner: 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!
Lara Robinson purchased this House in 2009
Why Lara Robinson chose St Louis Heights
Why the Owner Chose Honolulu: We chose to buy a vacation rental 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. The Unique Benefits at this House: We fell in love with the gorgeous ocean and Diamond Head views from the grand lanai (balcony), living room, kitchen and bedrooms.a
What makes this House unique
Step onto our wraparound lanai (balcony) with a hot tub, inhale the sweet scent of tropical flowers, wiggle your toes in the grass, and greet an amazing, elevated view of Honolulu’s modern skyline and Diamond Head’s distinctive volcanic silhouette.

A perfect spot in paradise!
Situated in the St. Louis neighborhood overlooking Honolulu from Diamond Head across the entire city, this home is a destination in itself on Oahu. In minutes you can be on Waikiki Beach or hiking through the jungle to a secluded waterfall. It was the perfect place for our family and friends to relax and plan the next day's adventure.
We found the home and its amenities to meet or exceed the online descriptions. The covered outdoor space and views were captivating.
We look forward to our next trip here! Thanks to the owners for making it available!
I agree that our property is one of the best kept secrets that the Waikiki area has to offer. The ability to be so close to the action, yet feel like you're away from the hustle and bustle (to feel truly relaxed - Hawaiiana style) is priceless. We look forward to having you stay again as well! Mahalo nui loa!
Breathtaking views of the Waikiki and Diamond Head
The home was beautiful. Glen and Lara are truly blessed and their commitment in sharing their kindness and home is evident in every interaction. Always quick to respond and true to their word everything we needed was there. Thank you for sharing your wonderful home with us.
We have to say, helping our guests have the experience of a lifetime is a very heart warming thing! Mahalo!
While not luxurious, it was perfect for our family of five adults!
It truly was a home away from home with everything we could possibly need all provided! Even the mini van! That was a great bonus! We loved having our meals on outdoor covered deck relishing the gorgeous view! Glen and Lara are the perfect hosts! Very responsive from beginning to end! Oh! Washer and dryer were also a great help!
Thank you so much for being great guests and taking care of our house and van. We are happy to hear that you found everything you needed - yes, we LOVE the washer and dryer too! Come back soon!
Came here with a group of 8 & we were very happy with the place! The view was the cherry on top of place, so great! We will be back here for sure! Mahalo!
