Unique, Quiet, Secluded, Scenic, Comfortable Vacation Rental
This is not your typical Hawaiian setting. But, if you are up for a unique and interesting place to stay, this is for you. After a 2-hour drive from Kona, we arrived in Ocean View and stopped at the Malama Mkt. for food and other supplies. We were pleasantly surprised that this market had everything we needed for our 5-night stay. We drove about 4 miles down towards the ocean through the rocky lava landscape and found our rental. This one-bedroom unit is on the ground level below the main house. Besides the bedroom, there is a small kitchen, bathroom and comfortable living area. It was nice to have a pool to ourselves. The people of Ocean View are friendly, and everyone we encountered warmly welcomed us to the area. Our activities included: a hike down to the ocean (hot, no shade, pack water), a bike ride out to the lave flow, a fun time at Uncle Roberts, an interesting visit to a local coffee farm, and a delightful experience at the free community Christmas celebration in the park. If you are looking for a different Hawaii experience, we suggest you give this a try.
