Plantation Estate is a single-story, wood-frame, 5,000-square-foot (460 m2) Pacific Ocean-front house at 57 Kailuana Place in Kailua, Honolulu County, Hawaii, which President Barack Obama rented for use as a Winter White House during his Christmas vacations from 2008 to 2011.

The house is less than a mile south of the Marine Corps Base Hawaii. Obama worked out at the Semper Fit Center at the base and attended dinners there during his visits. He also swam in the ocean at the base of Pyramid Rock.[1]

Obama visits[edit]

Obama meets in Kailua on December 29, 2009, with National Security Council chief of staff Denis McDonough concerning the attempted terrorist attack of an airliner on Christmas Day.
