This is about a Hawaiian resort, born in 1965 and shut down by the tsunami in 2011. It was designed as a throwback to Hawai'i as it had been before statehood began to overwhelm the gentle aloha culture of the islands. Kona Village Resort boasted unusual features--no TV or radio, no air conditioning, no room service, no locks on the doors--that attracted a fiercely loyal client base who returned year after year. They treasured the culture that 'welcomed them home,' especially when they could combine it with extraordinary food, a well appointed bath , and a clean cottage to sleep in.
The Village was unique, and this book describes it in affectionate detail through the eyes of a most unusually devoted fan.
