On the other hand....

But wait...
Rather stock your local food bank forever and still get your Big Island Hawaii oceanfront home? Don't drop $25m on the home featured on the prior post. Get this one. It's a current listing and it IS oceanfront. It's only $700k. I'd love to show it to you. Go on. You don't need those 10 extra rooms. This Kehena home is a 2/1 with 1000+sf under roof on 8752sf lot. It's a great spot for a vacation retreat.

If you've got it ....

A little weekend shopping anyone? Wanna splurge? This is the highest priced residential listing on Hawaii, Big Island MLS right now. Kukio. 6 bed / 7 bath + 3 half bath, 10 other rooms inc. offices, gyms, massage therapy room, etc. 13,496sf under roof on 1.33ac. Ocean view. Not oceanfront. It's sits back quite a way and looks over lava formations to ocean beyond. $25m

Putting it in Perspective

Putting it in perspective. I like this aerial taken from north of the tip of Big Island looking back south onto Kohala. It shows clearly the topography of the area and why there is no connection of the road between Pololu Valley in Kohala and Waipio Valley in Hamakaua. All the deep valleys and soaring cliffs in between are clear. You can hike from one to the other in both directions but that's for serious and experienced hikers only.

Out with the old - In with the new

I'm a firm proponent of sustainability. Re-purpose, re-use, re-cycle. Where I grew up we never threw anything away. I am often amazed at what is discarded here as worthless. As President of the Association for a large condo complex I am appalled to learn of the contents of our trash dumpsters - often boxed, brand new, unopened and unused; like flat screen TVs, power tools, chain saws, furniture, small case goods, luggage, etc.. The best (worst) had to be a tender - small boat carried on yatchs for safety - still in the box and in perfect condition! We live on an island.
