It is everything you imagine and more! We had the most wonderful time.
We stayed 10 days. The first 4 were in Honolulu at the Hilton there. I felt like it was New York City. We moved out to a VRBO in Kailua from Monday to Saturday.
We explored and did a lot of hiking, beaching,reading,eating and going to Open AA meetings. We discovered what a wonderful AA community is there and LOVED the 7 am beach meetings. Jimmy got his 9 year chip there! Kailua was definitely our favorite!
