My husband, son & I are headed to Oahu next July (2014) for a week. We want to stay on the North Shore & want a condo or house for around $1500 for the week. I've been reading Hawaii books & researching on the Internet for months now & could use your help.
We will rent a car. We want to swim, snorkel, do some easy hikes, & explore a bit. We'll also visit Pearl Harbor, Honolulu, Waikiki, &try to hike Diamond Head.
We'd like to be in a condo or small house (I've been on VRBO a lot!) so that we can eat meals in, have more space than a hotel room, & have a washer & dryer. I'd really love A/C if possible & maybe use of a pool. My son will be 8 so we'll need a bed for him but are ok with a 1 bedroom place. We have visited Kauai in the past & loved it! That's why we're going with the North Shore of Oahu--for a similar feel--but we're going with Oahu to stay on 1 island & finally see Pearl Harbor.
If you can send some suggestions my way of where to stay, I'd appreciate it so much. Thank you!
