I was the one who started the question about land in Hawai'i... not a condo in Kailua and you come to this post and poop all over Ka'u. I'm not a realtor, I am just a person who moved here from ugly Arizona who does not agree with your perception of this area. There are drug problems everywhere and again I suggest you look out of your own back door. White sand beaches may be nice, but our black sand beach is just as nice. You seem pretty aware of these escort services, how is that when I look in the yellow pages there are only 2 listed, 2 in Kona and 1 in Hilo? Knowing people in Ka'u does not make you an expert on it so you just stay away from the hearsay and talk about what you KNOW...like the poor quality of the schools in Ka'u... I agree with you there. But your post saying BEWARE OF KAU was just not right and that's why I am steamed about it. I am not trying to sell land, I am just bragging about what I got. By the way, I got a job right here in Ka'u. So, again you are wrong about this area.
