We're thinking of taking a 7-10 day vacation in Hawaii in September...we're torn between staying at the Hilton Hawaiian Village resort in Waikiki or renting a cute beach house in Laie - east side of the island.
We are laid back people who can appreciate the countryside and quietness it brings, but we also like Waikiki. (we have stayed there before) However, this time we'll have a 2 year old and 4 year old. I like the idea of having a home away from home on an uncrowded beach but I think the resort might be more interesting for the kids?
I'd like to know the pros and cons of both...anyone with experience have any suggestions or anything? What would be more fun for us as a family?

Oh thats a tough one. I went to Hawaii with my ex and a whole group of friends and we rented a beach house. On the way back in we stopped in Honolulu for one night. I was so grateful that we had been at that beach house, cause it made the experience so much better. Less touristy. BUT..we did see lots of families in Honolulu playing at the resorts. We had no children with us when we went, it was all adults. Could you divide the time between a beach house and maybe one or two nights at a resort?
