For the past three years, the Obamas have eschewed Chicago snow and opted for Hawaiian breezes. And really, who can blame them? As much as we all may dream of a white Christmas, isn't white sand a better alternative to white snow? In 2008, 2009, and now in 2010, the Obamas have spent their Christmas holiday at the upscale Paradise Point Estates on Kailua Bay. The five bedroom, five and a half bath home features high level security (of course) for its exclusive clients. A center courtyard includes a secluded lagoon-style pool pavilion with tropical waterfalls and an island spa.
