Sixth straight year.
Must be nice.
HONOLULU – The White House hasn’t officially announced their plans yet, but Hawaii News Now has learned the Obama’s will vacation here over the holidays. This will be the First Family’s sixth Christmas in Hawaii since he was elected president, and keeping with tradition they are expected to spend it in Kailua.
Every year the Obama’s have rented a few houses on Kailuana Place – creating quite the buzz in the beach side community.
“It’s exciting. It’s really an honor to have him here, and when he’s around – actually the place is super safe because we have all this security around,” said Lanette Hayashi, who lives in the neighborhood where the Obama’s are expected to stay again this year.
“We go through two security points and so the second one, we have to get out of our car. We have to be searched ourselves, plus our car has to be completely searched,” described Madeline, who has lived on the same street where the Obama’s have been renting for more than four decades.
