Overview

Diamond Head - Kapahulu - St. Louis House Rental Photos and Description

The Diamond Head views are best appreciated from the seven-person hot tub on the lanai. At dusk, the hot tub light glows an iridescent purple and the city lights at the base of Diamond Head smolder in the distance like coals in a fire. Tropical foliage all around perfumes the air with a fresh floral scent. It’s truly a remarkable setting!

Ocean View Kahala sleeps 10 people and is located on the lower level of a two-floor townhome, with its own separate entrance and amenities. For larger groups, we offer the option of renting both the top and bottom floor to sleep up to 18 guests. Ocean View Honolulu (the upper level 3 bedroom) sleeps 8.

In addition, our Ocean View Diamond Head (sleeps 8) and Ocean View Waikiki (sleeps 10) estate homes are located less than ½ mile away for supplementary accommodations, allowing a total capacity of 36 people for weddings or reunions.

At all of our rental homes, our top priority is helping you to have an amazing vacation. We have filled the house with all kinds of comforting, home-away-from-home details like crisp white linens, shampoos, lotions, spices and condiments, dishwashing and laundry soaps, and much more.

We cater to outdoor adventurers, too, with toys like snorkeling equipment, surfboards, beach chairs and towels, and golf clubs. And for kids, we provide a baby swing, bouncer, Bumbo, nursing pillow, high chair, booster seat, 2 umbrella strollers, games, and puzzles. All of the goodies we provide are replaced often to keep them new and fresh.

We’ll also welcome the adults with an “aloha starter kit” featuring Hawaiian items like chocolate covered macadamias, Kona coffee, wine, and a fresh pineapple.

Dining options include both a spacious indoor table lit by a contemporary chandelier with seating for 8, and an outdoor table in the breeze with seating for 6 more. Next to the outdoor dining table, find a gleaming gas grill that’ll impress any grill master.

The freshly upgraded kitchen is a chef’s dream with lots of cabinet and counter space and Diamond Head views from a big window above the sink.

One bedroom presents sea views and sliding glass doors leading to the lanai, and another has an attached spa-like bathroom. All 4 bedrooms have queen-sized beds and large screen LCD TVs with DVD players.

The bathooms have been upgraded to include rainshower heads, hand-held showerheads, and Jacuzzi jetted tubs.

Keep plugged in with broadband and WiFi Internet, 5 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 have a commitment to sustainability that includes solar water heating and solar power for Ocean View Kahala. We want to be sure to preserve the natural beauty in our surroundings for years to come!

We hope to be your hosts on your next visit to Honolulu. Please email or call with any questions or to book your stay. We are reserving dates on a first come basis, and our calendar is filling fast!

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

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!

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 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.

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 and bedrooms.

What makes this house unique

Ocean View Kahala creates a modern oasis with a gleaming kitchen, 3 porcelain-tiled bathrooms and hardwood floors. From the lanai (balcony) take in panoramic views of ancient, volcanic Diamond Head, the ocean just beyond, and the surrounding valley.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We had an awesome stay at your house! For two families with children your house was the perfect place. It is very accommodating & the view is priceless! Hopefully our kids won't expect such a great house every time we come to Hawaii... ha ha ha... The breakfast we have out on the deck is one of the many great memories with our friends. Thank you for really enhancing our visit to Hawaii!!

Spacious, HOT TUB, Beautiful Views

  • 5 of 5

Property was very nice and clean with a beautiful view & nice breeze from the wraparound covered lanai. Hot tub was amazing. Glen and Lara were exceptional hosts - they provided a generous welcome basket, were very accommodating to our needs, and even gave us a parting gift. Convenient location. Highly recommend staying here.

Amazing view and great vacation home

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous rental. Unbelievable amenities, not just the usual shampoo, conditioner, lotion, body wash and laundry soap - but beach towels, snorkels, boogie boards- anything you may want for beach and ocean play. Great view - hot tub was "the bomb", very clean and maintained- we used it daily. The deck in General was great. Parking in front of the house was always available for one car - we had two vehicles since we had 8 adults - but we always found a spot for the second car quickly and fairly close by the house. Last but not least Glen and Lara are awesome to work with. We had a couple of minor requests that we're met immediately - they truly care about their renters. - as is evidenced by the wonderful welcome basket that is waiting for you upon arrival. We will for sure be contacting them for our next trip to Hawaii! Thanks for just the best family vacation this Minnesota family has had in a very long time!

The Home,The View, and The Amenities were all great. Enjoyed the jacuzzi on.the back deck. Only negative was the neighbor telling us we were parked in his spot even the we were on the public street. He said it very nicely and he.was older so it wasnt really an issue.

More than we expected!

  • 5 of 5

It was the best vacation we ever had! The house was perfect, everything and more than we expected. The view was awesome! Everything was just minutes away with very easy access but far enough away to enjoy peace and quiet. Lara and Glen went out of their way to make us feel welcome. We wouldn't have changed a thing. WE hope to make this annual vacation but next year stay longer.
