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!
Lara Robinson purchased this House in 2009
Why Lara Robinson chose Eastern Honolulu
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.
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.

Needs thorough clean, updating and fix stuff. Great view, great location, great car.
View, location, car = 5 stars. Manager Glen responded & apologized for uncleanness and said on Feb 3, 2020, he would give us a credit for the cleaning fee. When he did not give it by Feb 16, I asked. He then texted me Feb 16 to leave a 5 star review in order to get that credit!
Thank you Lynn for give our HOUSE and FREE VAN FIVE stars.
I apologize for the stained towel and the delay in getting half your cleaning refund back to you. To make for the delay and the misunderstanding regarding the "five star review" I will double your refund to include 100% of the cleaning cost. Customer satisfaction is paramount to us, and has been since we started this business a decade ago! We hope your daughter is feeling better and look forward to your return trip with us.
Perfect! Thank you for the convince through the whole process of renting your beautiful clean home!! The nighttime view of the city...WOW!! Everything was more then expected!! Spacious and filled with helpful little items and info! We Enjoyed the large kitchen, large bedrooms and the hot tub! Thank you!!
You are so welcome - please come back and stay with us again! We love the morning and night view too !
We loved this house if we stay in Oahu again hopefully we can stay here
We would love to have you back!
The house was in a great location. Super close to freeway access for getting around the island. Seemed like a safe neighborhood and quiet too. Great view. Accommodated our family very comfortably. Only negative was that we could have had better supplies on paper goods for kitchen and bathroom. Refrigerator for some reason was extremely cold and our produce froze solid. Otherwise air conditioning and fans kept the house very comfortable.
Yes, our home is very convieient and out of the busy areas of Waikiki. I wish you would have asked for more supplies - there is a stockpile under the house :) Come back soon!
A Place for Family with a View
This property is in a quiet area, away from the bustle of Waikiki, but the inclusion of the rental car made getting around easy. The views were to die for, and evenings in the hot tub, looking at Honolulu and Diamond Head were amazing and enjoyed by all our family. Breakfast on the Lanai were a relaxing way to start the day, and we were treated to a couple of perfect rainbows.
The property easily accommodated our family group of 7, including 2 newly weds. The hosts had thought of everything a family may need, from an excellently equipped kitchen, to a great barbecue, copious beach towels and beach equipment.
The hosts were helpful when booking and check in and out was easy. We requested an extension to accommodate our afternoon flights and this was no problem for them. The car rental was very easy and 7 adults fitted in easily.
Given the opportunity we will go back to this place, or one of Glen’s other rentals.
Thank you so much.
Yes, I agree that the house is perfect for families and the van can seat up to eight people! We are happy you enjoyed yourselves - congratulations to the newlyweds too!!
One Week Stay
The house was very nice. The AC didn't work as well as it should have, but Glen says it is being fixed this week. Also, the photos in the listing are outdated. And the road up to the house is very steep and it is challenging to maneuver the van around the circle drive. We managed to make it each day without incident. We learned to go up past the house, turn around and approach the driveway from above. That worked much better. Also, all of us were senior citizens and had difficulty going up the 20 or so steps in the front. We learned to walk up the steep drive to the back door and then only had four steps to ascend. That was much better.
We were surprised to see another VRBO rental by the Robinson's so close to us (the rear house). The renters took a smoking break in the patio between houses almost every night and the smoke wafted into the back bedroom. Also, they were a little loud on the patio and those in the back bedroom could hear the conversation clearly.
The beds were very comfortable. We slept 7 without problems. The views were very good to the southwest and the northwest. We had rain and clouds most days, but we were able to see the sunset once. We were there for the record-setting rainfall that fell on Honolulu. No problems at the house, though.
The fireworks on Friday night were so far away and down low that they were not impressive. Glen was quick to address the problems we had (plugged toilet).
All in all, we had a great time. We really enjoyed the large, well-stocked kitchen and the oversized diningroom table. WIth all the rain, we only used the hot tub once, but it was nice.
Thanks for the constructive feed back, Hal. As discussed, we have addressed those items that you brought up- we pride ourselves in constantly making our rental better and better for future travelers. I'm glad that we were able to help you better navigate around the driveway and stairs - it seems like the solutions we found were great for your group! Yes, we have two rentals on property, and we really cater to large groups that rent both homes together - boy can you imagine having TWO vans, TWO BBQ's and TWO hot tubs for your vacation to the islands? Thanks again, and we hope to host you in the future!
