So we loaded up the truck and we moved to Beverley…..

8 Jan

We rent a Tahoe and it’s off to do a little tour of the east coast of O’ahu, then the Hyatt Regency Waikiki for our first night in Hawaii.

We take off on interstate H1 and head towards the east coast.  O’ahu is the only Hawaiian island with interstates.  There are three.  I’m not sure how many people actually drive here from the mainland on the interestate but it seems like every one of them is heading east on H1 this Friday afternoon.


O’ahu has three interstates, the other islands, zero

After some extreme traffic the interstate turns into the two lane (one in each direction) Kameamea Highway and we’re driving through the rugged, twisty, hilly roads of the east coast.  We stop to see a few scenic overviews.  All I hear from the drivers seat is gasps, oohs and ahhas as we soak in the incredible views and blue blue blue waters smashing into the cliffs.

Then it’s off to the Hyatt Grand Regency Waikiki.  Waikiki is an international rodeo drive on steroids.  Tourists come here from all over the world, and it is dense with high end name retailers, glitzy shops and open air big name shops that spew their air conditioned air conspicuously out onto the sidewalks.  Japanese tourists come here, buy large luggage sets and fill them with American goods to take home.  It’s a scene.

The Hyatt Grand regency has the central location on the beach, and with our 6 person party, AARP discounts and frequent flyer matching status we manage to scrag the presidential suite, on the 40th floor, for less than the price of a couple of rooms on the ground floor facing away from the ocean.

This apartment is over the top.  Two bedrooms, an office, kitchen dining room, living room and my favorite, a separate entrance for “the help”.  The bathrooms not only have bidets, but they have electronic toilet seat bidets on the toilets.  So if you would like to use a bidet, you have a choice in each bathroom of which one!

It also has 6 balconies.  If we like, each of us can sit on our own balcony overlooking the main drag and Waikiki beach.  In fact we all sat on the same balcony and just moved from one to the next!

Your choice of bidets. Traditional or electronic


Electroinic Remote Control for bidet

The electronic bidet has a remote control, with presets for two users! (Just like the seats in a BMW!)
All in all the electronic bidet is superior because it also has a heated seat and a blow dryer capability!
This would be a perfect bundle with the crapper companion we saw in Florence on the Italian infomercial.

We had dinner at uncle Bo’s up the street, took a walk on the beach and so ended our day of travel to the other side of the planet!
