Where to stay on Oahu other than Waikiki

My husband and I will be spending 10 days on Oahu in June. He has a conference at the Hilton Hawaiian Village in Waikiki, so we will be staying 5 days there.

We would like to spend the other 5 days on a different part of the island. We don't need night life or fine dining. I have found rentals that I like (and can afford) in Haleiwa, Punaluu, and Makaha.

Does anyone have any suggestions as to which would be best (or suggestion of other places)?

Thanks!

I'd probably choose Haleiwa. Another area that is popular--but I'm not sure how affordable--is Kailua/Lanikai.

I kind of liked Haleiwa when I breezed through there and would definitely consider staying there. It's a pretty basic beach town, I think. It's close to the best North Shore beaches (near the beach where you can swim with the sea turtles, too!).

I'd also look for something near Kailua on the windward (east) side. I liked that area quite a lot.

I highly recommend Kailua. It is a beautiul little community. I stayed at the Coral House and was very pleased. It is right by the beach and there is an awesome little convenience store/deli next door. The website is www.hawaiianbeachvacation.com. I have been there twice.

Just returned from Oahu. Haleiwa and Kailua were my favorite areas. Since you're going in June the snorkeling should be great up north. Haleiwa seemed like a great sleepy town. Plus you'll be close to Ted's Bakery. Think of all the goodies you'll be able to eat!

Kailua has a wonderful beach, not sure how affordable it is though.

Lane's link to the Coral House prop in Kailua looked nice and affordable ($89.- to $150.- a night).

Thanks for the advice. I am making some inquiries at rentals in both Haleiwa and Kailua.
