First time booking with VRBO. The condo was well appointed and exactly as advertised and pictured. We had a one-bedroom unit, clean, lots of kitchen appliances and utensils,etc. No problem cooking up a few meals in the unit. Had to kill a few bugs, but we were in the tropics, so I think to be expected.

View from our balcony

The weather was nearly perfect; only hit rain on the last day and it was warm; like walking through a fine mist. The condo had a nice balcony where I could sit in the shade and a rooftop pool, bbq and seating area, which we checked out but didn’t use. Lots of walking, including hikes up Diamond Head and to the Punchbowl cemetery. And lots of beach/boardwalk walks.

Loved the 5 days here.
Along the canal
As Amsterdam has for bikes, Honolulu has for surfboards; parking places everywhere

Magic Island, which is a lovely enclosed bay

Views around town

On the way to Diamond Head. I took the stairs!
And from the top

And walking up to Punchbowl, aka the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific, in the misty rain

Staying in Long Beach for couple of nights before embarking on the Carnival cruise tomorrow. The Best a western is comfortable with a good breakfast included, but there’s not a lot in the area. Walked to a couple of parks.
We tried to have dinner at Denny’s because it’s next door, but couldn’t get service after 20 minutes, so we walked down to Jack-in-the-Box for grilled chicken sandwiches and curly fries. First time at a Jack’s. Not bad.
