Next week, President Barack Obama will arrive in Oahu for his annual Hawaii vacation.  I've had several occassions to be in the vacation home that the President rents, since I had a few interested buyers when it was for sale for $9.5 million. 

This beachfront Kailua property has about half an acre right on the sand, and looks straight down Kailua beach.  The house is only 4 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, and about 5000 square
feet.  Not too big, considering many houses on the mainland are triple that size. The
location on Kailua beach can't be beat.  This will be the 3rd year in a
row that the President has rented this house.  Make sure to read the full post to view all 30 pictures!

This is the great room.  Beautiful beams in the ceiling are not actually supporting the house. They are just for decoration.
