Description from owner

Perched on a ridge high above Waikiki's Gold Coast, our 3-bedroom home presents stunning observatory views of Diamond Head, tropical hills & valleys, the rainforest, Honolulu's dramatic skyline, and the never-ending coastline.

E komo mai [Welcome]!

Our guests tell us these views are even more surreal than the photos can capture, and we have to say we agree! At sunset, step onto the extra-large lanai (balcony), sink into the bubbling hot tub, and wait for a stunning show as the sun sinks, the sky darkens, and the city lights of Honolulu start to sparkle.

This home is on the upper level of a two-floor building, and has its own separate entrance. For larger groups, we offer the option of renting both the top and bottom floor to sleep up to 18 guests - Ocean View Honolulu (upper level, this listing) sleeps 8 and Ocean View Kahala (lower level) sleeps 10. 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.

The goal with our vacation rentals has always been to show our guests the true "aloha spirit" we fell in love with years ago when we decided to make Hawaii our permanent home.

When you arrive, you will be greeted with a welcome basket of Island goodies like chocolate macadamia nuts, Kona coffee, and fresh, local pineapple. Your sparkling clean home is stocked with all the comforts of home so you can spend more time relaxing. The 6 person hot tub will be warm and ready to enjoy. We live in the neighborhood and are happy to help with whatever you need to make your stay comfortable and to share the insider tips we've gathered over the years.

This stylish home is located in a safe, upscale residential neighborhood where you can fully discover the beauty and culture of the island. You'll feel a million miles away from it all, but you're just 2 miles from the heart of Waikiki and the beach. Because we are so close to everything Oahu has to offer, we recommend driving to immerse yourself in the full island experience.

We also took care to make our homes sustainable, to help preserve the natural beauty in place we love so much. We take advantage of Hawaii's plentiful sun and use solar-heated water and solar panels to power the home.

Inside, you will find an open common area that blends living room, kitchen and dining area into one big, relaxing space for spending time together and taking in the views through panoramic insulated windows. A modern, stainless steel kitchen stocked with all the essentials means you can prepare meals in a chef-ready kitchen, in full view of the mountains, valley, city and ocean.

When it's time to eat, an adjacent dining table for 8 is the perfect spot, surrounded on two sides by panes of glass so that everyone has a view while they eat. Or, enjoy your food outside on the lanai's dining table in the warm breeze. There's a top-of-the-line stainless steel Weber grill on the lanai to impress any grill master in your group!

The luxurious bedrooms feature plush bedding, and the spa-like bathrooms are stocked with all the toiletries you could need, including shampoos, lotions and soaps.

Four large flatscreen LCDs (in the living room and each of the bedrooms) are great for movie nights in. We supply the DVD players and on-demand movies. There's also free WiFi and broadband.

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 and snorkeling equipment. For a great snorkeling spot, check out Huanama Bay, just 9 miles away. We're also just 9 miles from the airport and 20 miles from Pearl Harbor.

We hope to host you here in beautiful 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!

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 2014 EX eight seater Honda Odyssey minivan dedicated to OVH. Through a car-sharing service, called Turo, the unlimited use of this van is included in the pricing above.

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