Im planning a trip with the SO in August. We will be meeting halfway, which happens to be Hawaii. We have about 7 days total, but it is important to get a decent hotel/apartment. Having never been to Hawaii, what would you recommend, and should we just stay on one island? I have read that it would be a good idea to stay in Waikiki, but I fear it will be too much like our Surfer's paradise and have no privacy. The SO is from NYC so doesn't get the beaches we do here. We may even just get an apartment/condo for cgeaper than the price of a nice 4 star hotel.
