We live on the island of Oahu just 8 miles from the property. I am a teacher on the North Shore. I was raised in Kaaawa and love it that you can just go to the beach whenever you want. I have 3 sisters that were also raised there. Of our 11 children only 5 live on the island and all on the North Shore. The others live in the mainland. All but one are married with families and our special girl lives at home with us. Our boys played football, our daughter teaches hula and plays the piano and our hobbies are working, working, and then working.
