VIDEO: Inside Obama's Hawaii beachfront house

HawaiiMagazine.com reader Paul Krueger of Baltimore, Md., wrote asking if we could find any Web video of the Kailua home where president-elect Barack Obama and his family are spending the holidays.

The Obamas have been vacationing in Hawaii with a small clutch of friends since Dec. 20. Their home away from home? A multimillion-dollar beachfront compound on a quiet peninsula in the east Oahu bedroom community of Kailua.

Since arriving, Obama has motored daily with wife Michelle to a gym at nearby Marine Corps Base Hawaii for hour-long morning workouts, played a few rounds of golf at Olomana Golf Links and enjoyed an outing with his daughters to Sea Life Park and a shave ice stop in residential suburb Hawaii Kai. He also attended a private memorial service for his late grandmother, later scattering her ashes into the surf at Lanai Lookout.

Other than that, though, the Oahu born-and-raised Obama has barely left his Kailua rental.

We can now see why.
