When I first visited the Big Island in 1977, I fell in love with it. The snorkeling, diving, surfing, etc. were fabulous. Also, I loved the fact that the old Hawaiian culture was still prevalent here unlike in other more developed parts of the islands. In 1979 I bought a coffee farm in Honaunau on the lush slopes of Mauna Loa overlooking City of Refuge. After living over 20 years in the lovely mauka area of Kona, in 2008 I purchased my beach house in White Sands.
I chose to buy a vacation rental in White Sands Beach, because it is one of the loveliest beach areas on the Big Island. The homes in this neighborhood are one-of-a-kind, well maintained and present a lovely Hawaiian feeling. White Sands is conveniently located (within walking distance) to swimming, snorkeling, boogie boarding, surfing as well as shopping, dining, and cinemas. The weather in this area is always beautiful, sunny and warm.
I enjoy seeing, hearing, and smelling the ocean from my house. I love the fact that the beach is just a hop, skip, and a jump away. I love to have barbecues in my beautiful and serene Aian Pacific backyard garden/patio.
