A few weeks ago, we stayed in a house about 20 feet from the ocean on lava cliffs. (On the Big Island) It was around Hilo/Hawaiian Park or something like that. It rained a lot during our 3 day stay there, and it was very damp inside the house. So damp, that the towels did not dry hanging up. So damp that our socks were wet on the bottoms, and they wouldn't dry hanging up overnight!
My question is: Is this normal for living so close to the ocean, AND would we run into this if we booked a place close to the ocean on Maui?
We are going next Feb., and we'll probably stay in Kapalua again, but we're bringing more family with us, and I dont' want them to encounter the same problem as we did. It was very uncomfortable, and in a word, "Yucky!"
