    Take a look at the Kahala Hotel & Resort, which has a well-regarded kid's club plus sitter services. Located a little away from the hubbub on Waikiki, but you're just a short cab ride from the Waikiki nightlife. The resort also offers a complimentary shopping shuttle to Ala Moana Shopping Center, Waikiki, and Kahala Mall during the day. You're also close to other attractions like Diamond Head and Hanauma Bay Beach Park (nice beach, good snorkeling). Here's some more info on the resort: http://vacation.away.com/hotels/travel-ld-cid3863-honolulu-hotelid15611-the-kahala-hotel-&-resort-hotel.html

    The North Shore is quite a drive from all the attractions - at least an hour, hour and a half depending on where you stay. Keep in mind that the northeast shore of Oahu is substantially wetter and cooler than the south (Waikiki and Honolulu) by about 10 degrees. If you want beaches and activity, stay in Waikiki otherwise you'll spend most of your day commuting. If you want want quieter but still have access to activities, you may want to consider staying on Maui instead. There are a lot of nice quiet resort areas close to Lahania -- Kahana and Honokowai come to mind - probably a 5 to 10 minute drive to all of the activities in Lahaina. There's a lot to do there, and not as crazy as Oahu.

    HI Kathy, Summertime, when families descend on Hawai‘i, constitutes high season. So does wintertime (from mid-December through March), when a blanket of brrrr covers most of the mainland. Holiday periods like Thanksgiving and Easter also draw throngs. Be careful about coming in late April: There are three simultaneous holidays in Japan at that time, which means the Japanese are traveling in greater numbers than usual. In general, the north and eastward facing coasts tend to get more rain. But even when it's raining on the north or eastern shore, it's often not on the south or westerly shores. And rain showers don't tend to last that long, like they do on the mainland.
