The Hale Reena in Kailua, Hawaii, dubbed the other White House is the vacation home of Obama and his family in what will be their eighth consecutive Christmas vacation to Hawaii and at $3500-a-night, it doesnâ€™t come cheap. Amenities include a spa, pool, steam room and excellent out door facilities. See more photos after the cutâ€¦
President Obama will be paying the rent out of his pocket but other expenses such as security and the daily expenses of his security detail will be picked up by the taxpayer. The first family first stayed at the Hale Reena in 2011 when their usual first choice, The Plantation Estate wasnâ€™t available, that can cost between $5000-$10000 a night depending on the season.
