Jay, I live in Discovery Harbour, which is about 20 miles Hilo-side of Ocean View. Regarding commuting to the airport, it takes at least an hour and a quarter to the airport from the highway entrance to OV. However, OV is a huge subdivision, and it can take another 15 minutes to get from your house to the highway. So you'd be looking at probably a three-hour commute every day. Is this really worth it to live in Hawaii?

We love living in the South Point area but we are retired and go to Kona maybe twice a month. The drive is really tedious and could get old really fast if done on a daily basis. Lots of curves and if you get caught behind a slow moving vehicle it can seem like forever!
