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.

Kona Nightingales

Donkey's aren't the first thing that come to mind when thinking about Hawaii, or a Kohala Coast vacation. They are here though, and on the highway sometimes, so drive with caution. Our 'Kona Nightingales' were originally domestic draft animals but decendants today are wild. Local Kohala vet, Dr. Bergen, spearheaded a rescue program to capture and relocate these lovely animals from the barren surroundings of Waikoloa Village where they daily wandered into my yard looking for water. Many were adopted by mainland residents, and some locally.

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.

Christmas Holidays Hawaiian Style

It's not about tinsle and snow - make it about toes in the sand! Why not grab a last minute deal and come to the sun for the holidays. Cheap airfares are available, last minute rentals are deals, and if you just want to chill on the beach you don't even need a car (though it would help).
