Hey! we live in Ocean View. Yes, there is crime here. It is a bit wild west out here since the houses are sometimes far apart and such.
Naalehu and Discovery Harbor are very close to each other. discovery harbor seems nice and quiet and much safer than Ocean View.
The wind isnt too bad in OV, but not sure on Disco. It can be windy sometimes when I go down there but never too awful.
There is an awesome clinic in OV, and there is a clinic in Naalehu too, but not sure how good it is.
Personally I think the healthcare is not that great on the Island period, but its a trade off right!
We do get used to driving to Kona or Hilo to see specialists. Its just a fact of life.
And then to Pahala for ER.
I hope this helps a bit.
There is quite a bit down here for how small it is. 8 or more places to eat, several gas stations, bank, ace hardware, vet, thrift store, several grocery stores and health clinics, dentist, swap meet, business center, chiropractic, etc.
