We are planning a family vacation at a beach cottage here in this Summer. The cottages are available to military, active and retired, as well as DOD. The advantages include cost, ocean front, washer dryer, and A/C (at least in the unit available for our dates). The disadvantage as far as I can tell is the location about 25 miles west of Honolulu. Am I missing anything else? My understanding is the cottages have all been recently renovated.
Any thoughts from folks who have been in the area with family would be most appreciated. We are looking for a beach vacation with decent surf and snorkel time. Shopping and night life are not important to us.
Thanks so much.
