we"re planing to visist our son around the same time. Rob Walker, on the Cutter Jarvis as well. We're prepared to see him here and there. We've booked a one room cottage in Kailua on the East shore. We found it on the Vacation By Owner site. rates are better than hotels, and they come with a kitchenette, and you are in a neighborborhood, walking distance to the beach. sounds more relaxing and less touristy than Waikiki. Rob recommended.
