I am sorry that you were disappointed. If you had wanted a house on the ocean, we could have offered you one of our other listings, but the houses on the ocean are almost double in price. Most people choose this house for the view, the luxury and the privacy. I just clocked it and it is 13 minutes (6.5 miles) to 3 great restaurants in Kawaihae, and the fish market for fresh fish off the boat for the grill, as well as, cold beer.
Spencer Beach Park is 15 minutes away.
Most people like the 70 degree temp over 80 degrees down at the hot beach.
The pool is heated, but the heater was out for a few days of your stay. It is fixed now and we appreciated your patience with that.
Was this your first trip to the Big Island? It is BIG and there is a little drive time no matter where you stay, but what a beautiful drive with unbelievable scenery in every. direction. The whales are jumping alongside the highway, mountains in every direction. We appreciate the beauty here. For those who are concerned about stores, restaurants and gyms being walking distance or 5 minutes away, we recommend Honolulu or Kona. This house is not for those wanting the city life. Mahalo!
