My husband and I will be coming for the first time to Oahu on Aug. 11th, staying for 6 nights before going to Kauai for 5 nights. I want some place that's quiet and centrally located to attractions on both the north and south shores with a kitchen so we can cook our own meals and not far from the beach/snorkeling. Is Kailua the best place to look at? Other areas I should look into? I've checked a few places at Hawaiian Beach Rentals, VRBO and Tripadvisor and it looks like if I want anything more than a studio apartment that has no stove, that I'll have to pay $200+ per night. I'm wondering if there's a way to get a rental cheaper without having to pay all the additional fees through some of these companies? Does more than one company post the same listings and will their fees be similar? Thanks for your suggestions.
