Honolulu for 12 days

hi, we are heading to Honolulu for 12 days at the end of August and although we have been to Honolulu before a few times this is the longest we have stayed for. We (husband and toddler) are keen to stay in a one bedroom with a kitchen of some shape or form with fairly close proximatey to waikiki beach... I have been researching but now just don't know - any recommendations?

My first recommendation would be the Aston Waikiki Banyan. It is a nice building, good location and a good value. A bit more upscale, the Aston Waikiki Beach Tower.

The Pacific Monarch is okay too. Look at these websites.

The Banyan gets good reviews for families. We recently enjoyed our stay in a condo at the Ilikai, which is an easy walk to the beach. The one downside is that the pool doesn't have a kiddie pool area, but you are only steps away from the Hilton lagoon, which is like a gigantic beach and kiddie pool all in one.

The only downside to the Ilikai's one bedroom condos is that they are really more like very large studios, with the bedroom area separated from the living room area by a sliding screen door.

All beaches in Hawaii, including Duke Kahanamoku Lagoon (located beach side of the HHV), are public.

With 12 days you should consider splitting your stay and spend a few night on the North Shore. It is a totally different experience, almost like staying on a different island.
