The White Sands was exactly what we were hoping to find for our first trip to Hawaii: a clean quiet room with kitchen, lots of space, and our own deck overlooking the pool. We loved the greenery, the koi pond, and the privacy. The ambience...More

From White Sands to Denny's is not really worth it. Denny's is on Lewers Street. Probably at a casual pace, 15 minutes walk. There are plenty of better places to eat on the way.
