Hi Catherine and thank you for your reply. Sorry for not getting back sooner but with the current "NOTIFICATION" platform being down I have to go back several pages on my Q/A history and look to see who's replied to my questions.
We're not interested in the Ko Olina area. We are Marriott Vacation Club owners and have stayed at the Ko Olina resort. My problem with that whole area is a) there's no close surf breaks and b) it's just too cookie cutter. It reminds me of Irvine, California with all the tracts, and commercial and industrial centers. There's no feeling of Hawaii.
We really want to be in the Waikiki area for a variety of reasons a) we love the surf there, b) we love walking the beach, c) we love the multitude of dining choices available and d) we just love the charm, ambience and history of the entire area.
We've visited all the islands over the decades that we've been fortunate to visit the Islands and really like all of them for their own charm, history and beauty. However, at this station in our lives we just like the excitement and variety of choices available in the Waikiki area.
