We are trying to decide between staying in Waimanalo / Kailua. We will be with our little boy (3 year old) and we would like to be in a place close to some shops, eating places as well as close to beach. While I dont like the crowded beaches of Waikiki, I am not too keen on something completely secluded as well- something in between would be great. So any suggestions would be welcome.
the two properties that we are narrowing down on are the follwing, so any personal recommendations
The cottage in Waimanalo is VRBO Listing 72184- its just a few steps to the beach
The cottage in Kailua is called Hualani Cottage: VRBO listing 202201 (this is 3 blocks from the beach)
Also, if you have any idea about any of those two properties, that may help make the decision as well
