We are wanting to plan a large Christmas (2015) family reunion in Oahu (10 adults, 7 kids). We are hoping to find an affordable but nice rental home for 6-7 nights. What is a good area in Oahu to stay? We would like to be close to a calm beach with lots of soft sand. I'm thinking we would like to be close to Honolulu but not in the heart of all the hustle-bustle. The adults have all been to Hawaii previously as singles but this will be the first time with kids in tow.
