This vacation started off as a trip to Australia because that is what we had promised ourselves about 20 years ago. At the time, we were parents to our first baby, whom we loved, but who seriously cut into our vacation schedule. And so, we promised ourselves that on our 25th anniversary, when our baby would be all grown up, we would travel to the …
... its age and the living quarters were much better than I'd imagined, albeit tiny. Listening to the audio guide I was also very surprised at how well the crew said they used to eat. That being said it would obviously be terrifying when you were being depth charged by the enemy. We then moved on and saw the short Pearl Harbour informative documentary/film before being ...
... but my favorite beach was Waimea. Luckily Jen and I (I should really rename this blog "The Adventures of Jen and Jaz") stayed with Jen's friend from high school. He and his cousin are some of the coolest people I have ever met. And I don't use the term coolest lightly. They basically drove us all around the island. We saw Sea turtles, jumped off cliffs, ate moco loco, maladasadas, Filipino food, went out to sing karaoke, took us on a booze catamaran, and a plethora ...
... our way around them and finished in 50 minutes! Hawaii-50!
Next was a quick lunch and off to the famous Waikiki Beach. The water temperature was amazing and the colours were beautiful. We all had lots of fun.
Dad really wanted steak and salad for birthday dinner so we grabbed the necessary items at Malama Market on the way home and the girls made a beautiful salad. We couldn't resist a local cherry pie with some ice cream for a substitute birthday ...
... and quite bit of snorkelling. I've seen many fish and 2 turtles so far, yew! At waimea there is a neat rock located at the opposite end of the bay, about 400m. I've been swimming from my end to the rock jumping off and then swimming back. The jumps a little bigger than lorne pier so it's a decent drop. Very popular amongst tourists, like me! The supermarket is located right nextdoor which is very handy! The prices there aren't however, almost compare able ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsWyndham at Waikiki Beach Walk Honolulu
We arrived in the dark and despite using a GPS, we had trouble finding the parking lot to the Wyndham. That's because it's tucked in behind the hotel off a tiny side street. The Wyndham entrance is also non-descript. The easiest way to identify it is by the pair of folks in color-coordinated shirts standing in front of a podium. I think their official job is to attract attention to the time sharing opportunities at the Wyndham, but luckily for us, they were there to direct us to the valet serviced parking lot. The nightly fee is $35 and really if you stay at the Wyndham, there are no real options because the hotel is smack dab in the middle of a very active area with minimal parking opportunities. For us, that was exactly the draw, its awesome location: close to the beach yet right in the middle of the action.
No complaints about the staff. Everyone we met were very helpful and courteous.
We ended up in a two bedroom unit on the sixth floor facing the street with absolutely no view of the beach. Luckily, the street was lovely and provided lots of fun people watching opportunities. The interior of the unit was spacious and resembled the pictures. We were surprised by the mustiness upon entering the unit. Perhaps it's something to be expected given that we are so close to the ocean. Even with the air conditioning running, the musty smell persisted. It wasn't horrible, just something that we eventually got used to. The unit was a little more tired looking than we had expected. In the pictures, the unit appeared practically brand new, but in reality the furniture was beginning to show its age. Nevertheless, everything in the kitchen functioned very well and it was well stocked with almost everything you would need to cook your own meals. The air conditioning in the master bedroom never quite got going and it always seemed a little warmer in that room. Since we were there for only three nights, we never had the chance to take advantage of the facilities the hotel had to offer. The pool did not appear luxurious, just small and basic. Overall, the hotel suited our needs perfectly as a pied a terre for visiting the sights of Oahu.
