Default Frugal Hawaii vacation?

We did a frugal Oahu trip in 1999 from Fl with great success.

Got a package from Pleasant Hawaiin Holidays that included car, hotel,
and airfare from San Francisco for 7 nights in July for about $450pp.
We stayed at the Aston Island Colony Hotel about 4 blocks from the
beach, but, on the canal. Had great views of Diamond Head, city, canal,
and the beach. Rooftop pool, laundry, restaurant (didn't use though).
Room was had an efficiency kitchenette with a fridge, stove top,
microwave, bath, bedroom, and balcony. We could walk to everything
easily and had younger kids along. There are a lot of fast food and
cheap food in Waikki and lots of inexpensive things to do (along with
some expensive things if you are so inclined). We really did not need
the car as there was good bus service.

We purchased our own air to San Francisco for $150 pp and enjoyed a week
there prior to leaving on our Hawaiian Package just because we had the
time.

Reseach Oahu and Waikii and be informed of all the free and/or cheap
activities such as the weekly Kodak Hula show, free entertainment in the
Marketplace, hiking Diamond Head, swimming, Pearl Harbor, etc. With
some research you can pull this trip off very nicely for under $2000.

If you do stay in Waikiki and have cooking facilities, DO NOT buy groceries
from the Food Pantry (one is on Kuhio avenue and the other over by the Hale
Kalani, I think) as their prices are about double the supermarkets outside
Waikiki. The Bus goes past Safeway on Beretania where the prices are more
reasonable, especially if you have a Safeway card. KM

However, I'd hate for you to visit Hawaii and only go to Waikiki or even
just Honolulu. Try to get to at least one of the other islands or the less
populated parts of Oahu.

You can get outside the Honolulu-Waikiki area by taking the circle island bus
which takes you to the North Shore where and windward sides of the island for
only $2.00 per person. You can visit beaches like the one at Waimea Bay or
wander around in old Haleiwa town.

You are invited to visit my Oahu webpage where you can click on "The Bus"
link to see all the places the city bus travels and learn about bus passes

Apparently some of the links are not working, most, though are. I will make
corrections as soon as time permits and thank you very much for the tip! KM
