Top 7 Affordable Beach Lovers' Homes on Oahu

by Locations LLC 6/27/2012 1:29:00 PM

Hawaii is known for its idyllic golden sand beaches with soft, balmy winds and an inviting azure ocean.  Undoubtedly, many of us (okay, ALL of us) want a piece of this tropical paradise, making beachfront properties somewhat scarce and relatively expensive.  So how can we “regular folk” afford it?  Sometimes, you just have to know where to look…  Here are a few hidden gems that are worthy of consideration.  Sure, some may require a short jaunt across the street to get to the beach, but for great prices like these, it’s worth the walk.
