Hawaii March 2008

Seeking great week of well deserved vacation in March of 2008, we once again visited the island of Oahu, Hawaii.

For the second time in about a year, we took advantage of our timeshare and stayed at the Wyndham Waikiki Beachwalk, conveniently located a block back from the the heart of Waikiki, behind the Halekulani and Imperial hotels. The photo at the left shows the view looking out from our window towards Diamond Head.

This facility is a real gem -- very close to the beach, and in the middle of the newly renovated "Beach Walk" and convenient to many new restaurants and shops. For this stay, we booked a one bedroom deluxe unit. Though smaller than the two bedroom unit we stayed in during our visit in December of 2006, it was comfortable, new, clean, well furnished, and more than adequate for the two of us. The suite included a roomy master bedroom with a king bed and a flat panel TV, a living area with a larger flat panel TV and sleep sofa, two very small lanai (balconies), a kitchen with medium fridge, range/oven, microwave, dishwasher, hotpot, ricecooker, etc, a washer/dryer combo, and of course, a roomy bathroom. The only regret we had was that there is still no outdoor spa -- something that is advertised, and which we were looking forward to.

We used the Wyndham as a base for our various activities on Oahu... I'll cover these in subsequent postings.
