where to stay

My husband and I are going to Oahu in June 2005. I have search and search on the internet as the best place to stay. Does everyone stay in Waikiki? I thought about staying in a b&b in Kailua, about 30 minutes from the hustle and bustle. I like a clean place but nothing fancy, because we will be out everyday seeing the island. Any suggestions would be great. Thanks.

kailua is fine its probably more than 30minutes from waikiki .. if your into night life and that sort of thing then i would recommend waikiki .. if your into relaxing then kailua would be fine .. you would just have to drive everywhere that you wanted to go.

kailua beach is the nicest beach I have ever been to. Like others said, if you're looking for nightlife, shopping, etc, than you'll probably want Waikiki. If not, Kailua is a great place.

Kailua is a great area for swimming, but I would watch out for the full moon..it can cause man-o-war to be in the area. Winds can also bring them.
