We just returned from a trip to Waikiki the last week of April and had a great time! Our original trip had been planned for last December, but had to be postponed due to my son's surgery. Some may remember me asking on here about whether to reschedule for December of 2014, or try for a different month sooner. Well, as it worked out, our timeshare (Waikiki Marina at the Ilikai) had a week available in April and airfare was around $700 each so we went for it!
Now, as fate would have it, there is also a timeshare week available the week of Thanksgiving and I see that airfare is around $800! The nice thing with timeshare weeks is that they are pretty much pre-paid every year so we don't have to worry about shopping around for hotel rates, etc.:) We usually take 2 vacations a year anyway and don't have anything else planned for fall/winter at this point.
So I guess my questions are: Will coming back so soon take the "magic" out of visiting Oahu? Do any regular visitors ever get sick of it in large doses? And also, what's it like around Thanksgiving there- is that a good time to visit? I'm kind of curious as to why it's still available! I know it's the end of Hurricane season here on the East Coast.
If we were to hold off on this one, we would probably wait a year or two and save timeshare points to either do a Oahu/Kauai combo trip like we did the first visit, or Maui. Waikiki is basically the "cheapest" for us points-wise.
