About the owner: The moment I first came to Hawaii I knew I would build my home here. I love the house, the land, and all the things to do and see around the area. There is a primordial energy to the land which has always drawn me. Something about being out in the middle of the Pacific, thousands of miles from any other land mass is exciting. I love to hike the area and can be a valuable asset to you should you want to get around and see things. No shortage of things to do!
Other than that, I have a passion for couples dancing and singing. I have been a part of numerous dance performance teams. My favorites are west coast swing and nightclub two step. Most of the songs I sing are older ballads by Nat King Cole and Johnny Mathis.
Why the Owner Chose Ocean View: When you see it you will know. It is new land trying to get started. It's memories are fresh.
The Unique Benefits at this House: Ideally located between Hilo and Kona. Closer to Kona. It's a big island. 100 miles or so across. More than you could ever see in a month. This is a quiet place. Absolutely silent often at night. Although neighbors are not abundant, there are a few and it is important to respect others at night as sound travels real far here. Great views of South Point. You can easily drive to South Point, Black Sands Beach, Ho'okena Beach Park, Whittington Beach Park, Manuka Forest Preserve and Kahuku Ranch Reserve. Great hike (car in if you want) to Green Sands Beach and Pahue Bay. Of course, there is Volcano National Park about an hour away.
