Hawaii housing for 5 near Honolulu?
« on: March 05, 2019, 04:19:46 PM »
Hello everyone,
I used some SWA miles to book 5 r/t tix to Honolulu for next month!
Great deal & perfect timing!
Now to find housing for 5 nights.
Any tips on reasonable hotels, Air B&B's, etc?
Also need rent-a-car.
Thank you so much for everyone's help!
Anyone need passes to Hollywood Magic Castle, let me know!
Thanks!

Are you set on staying in Oahu and not going to another island?
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

Why would you stay on Oahu at all?
Complete waste of money and precious time in Hawaii.

Thank you for your considerate post.
The kids have never been to Hawai'i so we can hit another island next time.
On Oahu we can see North Shore, Hanauma Bay, climb Diamon Head, Arizona Memorial, etc.
4 full days, 5 nights.  I don't think enough to hit 2 islands.

I think Dan and Co are suggesting you visit a different island for the ENTIRE trip.

Is the Arizona memorial open yet?
If you see something that is 50% off but don't need it, walk away and save yourself 100%

Understood but our SWA flight already booked to Honolulu & most likely most people have visited Oahu once in addition to other islands.

I'm sure. Was just pointing that out. Enjoy! Don't let the naysayers get you down

And I regret it to this day. The first thing everyone does when they get to Oahu is get on a plane to a different Island. Skip it. Maui, Kauai, The Big Island. It is just another 45 minutes.

Waikiki is nasty. Miami Beach is much nicer.

Don't listen to the naysayers if you've already made plans.  Waikiki is extremely touristy, less relaxing than the other islands, but there is loads to do.  You will not be bored.
