President-elect Barack Obama is enjoying one last vacation in Hawaii, where he grew up, before his inauguration. The Obama family will be staying in a $9 million single-story oceanfront home fronting Kailua Beach. The home sits on a dead-end road with few other homes making it easier for the Secret Service to protect. The home was originally built in 1934 for Harold K.L. Castle, the landowner who developed much of Kailua after World War II and was renovated in 2005. The home is listed on a vacation rental directory, http://www.hawaiisbestrentals.com and given the description it appears to be this one which rents for $2500-$3500 a night. The home is less than a mile from another beach house where the Obama family stayed during August vacation. Given the weather in most of the U.S. it sounds like the best place to stay warm over the holidays.
