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!

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 three vehicles, which includes a 2015 Honda Odyssey minivan and a 2002 Lexus RX300 SUV. Through a car-sharing service, called Relay Rides, you can rent one of our vehicles.
Take a taxi from the airport (they’re plentiful!) to the rental house and the minivan or SUV will be waiting for you. No need to stand in yet another line at the rental car kiosk after a long day of travel.
All three of our vehicles are sleek, family-friendly, spacious for loading with beach gear, and equipped with Garmin Nuvi 52LM 5” navigation systems for island excursions. (For inspiration, here is Lonely Planet’s list of the best scenic drives on Oahu.)
The Honda Odysseys are particularly family-friendly, with 8 seats and A-grades for car seat safety and security. Plus, we provide car seats/boosters for you at no extra charge.
What about insurance coverage?
Booking through Relay Rides ensures we’re all covered in the event of an accident. As a driver, you can get the same level of coverage you get with a rental car company. Choose your level of coverage, from the no-protection state minimum, to premium protection with $300,000 in liability.
We hope having a vehicle waiting for you makes planning for and enjoying your vacation in Oahu a little easier!
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.
We fell in love with the gorgeous ocean and Diamond Head views from the grand lanai (balcony), living room, kitchen, dining room and bedrooms.
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.
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
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.
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!
We rented both houses for our families for a reunion/ wedding reception. Everyone could come and go for their various site seeing, beach outings, and hiking events and come back in the evening for our get together. Views were aswesome and houses had everything we needed - one suggestion from our daughter was -" tell people to look in every nook and cranny on their first arrival"- as our 3 yr old granddaughter discovered the little nook and cranny under the staircase filled with toys the day we were leaving!!! Our cousins from North Carolina found the games and puzzles under the kitchen bar the night before. Our relatives and friends that live on Oahu were impressed and glad to find these properties to recommend to family and friends when they visit. thanks so much for many wonderful memories.

Wow is the first thing I said when I arrived! The ocean, the city, the clean air, the hot tub, the grill, the hammock! The bedrooms had comfortable beds and . The air-conditioning worked well and the kitchen was well stocked. Our hosts left a beautiful basket of goodies and wine for us to enjoy on our arrival, as well as plenty of local tourism activity guides for us to make our planning simpler. It was great that we could easily cook some meals to save on restaurant charges for every meal! The view as even more outstanding than the pictures show. I absolutely recommend this place to others, whether they are a family or friend group!
While looking at the great pictures we took while staying here, I realized I never wrote a review. Well, I can't say enough about Glen and Lara's hospitality. This was no doubt the best experience my family and I have ever had traveling. They made us feel like we were at home. Hopefully the next time we travel to Oahu we can stay here again. True Home Away From Home. Thank You.
We stayed in this home for Christmas break 2013 and the house was finishing up some renovations. We had a few glitches in during our stay but Glenn and Lara did everything to help accommodate us. They always returned our emails and calls quickly to make sure our requests were done. When we left, the house was close to being fully renovated. Glenn and Lara did a beautiful job with almost everything new in the house. New appliances, carpet, bathrooms, and deck. The home has fabulous views and it is on a prime location. The house is in a safe and quiet neighborhood and only 15 minutes from Waikiki.
Thank you Glenn and Lara! Aloha
Everything is close by! Waikiki, the beach, Hawaii Convention Center, restaurants and bars are within walking distance to 2 miles away. This home has the most gorgeous panoramic ocean, Waikiki, Diamond Head, mountain and golf course view.
