According to the listing description on the Web site:
"Unique to this FLW home, guests are only a short 10 minute drive to beautiful white sand beaches, world class resorts and plentiful golf courses on the Kohala Coast."

Paul, by your calculations, Sims would be 6 minutes from the beach. Seems near enough.

5 night minimum stay @ $950/per.

And, assuming you were to stay 5 nights - with taxes and other fees your total = $6,413.81 .... which works out to $1,282.76/per night.

David, these days that's a trifle. There's a hotel in WeHo with a suite for $63,000/night. I don't know whether or not that includes the macadamia nuts.

It's always possible to find outlier examples that bend the curve---or snap it in two ?

This house was competed (and photographed) in a way that should do the Old Man--and the late John Rattenbury--proud. Very nice . . .
