The Plantation Estate at Paradise Point:  2008, 2009, 2010

This is the original "Winter White House" located a few houses down the street from the Hale Reena in the same Kailuana neighborhood. Although President Obama no longer stays here, its website invites you to "Vacation Like a President". View the Photo gallery.






The Oahu Lani - August 2008

The Oahu Lani is a large, 10-bedroom, beachfront house located in the middle of Kailua beach about a mile south of the Kailuana neighborhood. Technically neither a "Winter" nor "White House", then-Senator Obama stayed here in August 2008 while he was running for President. View the Photo gallery.

Obama Hawaii Vacation Map

Believe it or not, this map contains a marker for every single place President Obama has visited since we started keeping track back in 2008. (Except for Bobby Titcomb's house on the North Shore, which we decided to leave off because he's had enough trouble already.)
