Why the Owner Chose Ocean View: As an on-going vacationer to the Big Island using vacation rental, we were fortunate to find this home during our 2011 visit. It is private, quiet and peaceful. The weather is perfect since it is at a 2,900 ft elevation that is cool at night and warm during the day. It is as well virtually bug free all year. With an expansive deck around the main house and nearly full length deck across the back of the cottage, outdoor grilling and relaxing makes for a most pleasant stay.
The Unique Benefits at this House: What we believe makes the home is the openness of the living area and large kitchen (we love to cook). Of course the deck a major relaxing spot. A bird house (we supply the feed) on the corner of the deck offers endless bird watching entertainment. The large deck provides great outdoor relaxing. Outdoor grilling is great and is complemented with a good supply of fresh fish (from the local convenience store) as well as steaks or barbequed ribs from local grocery stores.
