Obama’s Hawaii Vacation Home And The Luxury Rentals Of Kailua


This Asian-inspired oceanside estate became the Obamas’s holiday home when their first-choice rental (which is only a few houses down) wasn’t available in 2011 and again in 2012. It is widely assumed that the Obamas will be back again this year, their third year in a row. The estate rents for around $3,500 a day, with a seven-day minimum. The Obamas are staying for 16 days (from Dec. 20-Jan.5), which totals $56,000 and which the Obamas pay out of pocket.It may not have been their first choice, but with an open floor plan and a tropical lagoon in the home’s entryway, it’s really hard to feel sorry for them.
