About the property

Contemporary Home With 3 Bedrooms & Incredible Kitchen. Feels Like a Cruise Ship

When we sold our family home down the street we moved our karma and love for the 'aina (land) here. Hopefully you will get the same feeling we have: peace, serenity and the knowledge that Pele and Kanaloa watch over the Big Island and the special piece of it we mind for them.

We bought this property six years ago and completely remodeled it from the ground up. It has state of the art finishes throughout and is meant to provide a tranquil respite for Lisha and I after we complete our work with the Foreign Service. It's a place for families to gather together and celebrate what's important.

When you walk in through the custom designed front door, you will start to see the fabulous design features and art immediately. Large spaces and endless light fill the main area which include the living room, kitchen, dining area and lanais. There are two bedrooms, one with a queen and one with two twins, on the same level.

Take the staircase downstairs and you enter the realm of the sixty by twenty foot wide Family Suite. It has a queen bed, a king size bed and a beautiful bathroom with a free standing tub. The WC is in a separate room and there is my favorite, a double shower which is also a steam room. There is a second, fully covered lanai on this level as well. I can't live without it so just outside the bedroom's side door there is a second shower looking over the ocean.

OCCUPANCY-In consideration of our neighbors and because of liability issues, OCCUPANCY AND USE OF THE HOUSE IS STRICTLY LIMITED TO THE NUMBER OF GUESTS WE HAVE AGREED TO IN YOUR RESERVATION. Other persons are not allowed on the property and there can be no loud parties at any time. Our neighbors closely monitor the neighborhood and record and report disruptive events as soon as they happen. IF WE RECEIVE A COMPLAINT REGARDING EXCESSIVE TRAFFIC, NOISE OR PARTIES OF ANY KIND YOU WILL FORFEIT YOUR SECURITY DEPOSIT. We understand that many wish to have events and parties and in fact love a good time ourselves. If that is your need then our home is not the place for you.

Why Brian Crawford chose Hilo District

This is our Hawaii homes and is complimented by a place in Hermanus, just outside of Cape Town, South Africa. Incidentally they are nearly perfect antipodean points....

What makes this house unique

Fabulous ocean vistas, sounds of the sea, and the Big Island to explore...

Guestbook comments from the owner

We arrived on the 16th and left on Christmas Day just as we planned over a year ago. So much changed in a year but all conspired to bring us to this wonderful home on the best part of the Big Island. This home is very welcoming and perfectly located to enjoy the view, the sounds of the waves and the frogs. The lanai is wonderful... We spent much of our time out there. The showers and the big tub downstairs are great treats. Easy access to the Farmers Market to buy fresh fruits, vegetables, coffee, and locally made breads. The market was also a great source for wonderful presents to take back to the Mainland. Come and enjoy this place. This house is in great harmony with the essence of Hilo. Mahalo!

Fantastic house in Hilo

  • 5 of 5

This house was just the house I thought abt from the pictures posted.

We love this house. It's close to the town yet no cars pass by and only what you can hear is the waves are breaking.

We are moving to Kona today but I will miss this house.

Thanks Brian and be my guest when you come to Korea.

All the best,

K J

Everything and More!

  • 5 of 5

This home is everything claimed and more! We stayed for 10 days and left wishing for 10 more. Sleeping every night with the sound of the surf seemingly at the foot of the bed was so relaxing. I slept better than I have in years. The homes amenities were above and beyond our expectations. We never felt crowded even though we had six adults in our group. There was always a place to find your very own quiet time. The home is wonderfully located. We were able to do everything we planned to do and more. We went to the beautiful botanical gardens in Pepeekeo twice! They were spectacular. I have so many gorgeous photos from the gardens alone. We drove out to Hawai'i Volcanoes National Park and were treated to a showing of lava spurts in the crater. The ranger said we were very lucky as it doesn't happen all the time. We walked to the great surfer beach just a short way from house. The surfer vibe was a lot of fun.

We took in Rainbow Falls and climbed into a crazy huge banyon tree. We went to Akaka Falls State Part and Waipi 'o Valley Lookout. If you have a four wheel drive vehicle, you must take the road down into the valley. It is a crazy drive. You can find details on Wikipedia about the road and the history of the valley. It was a magical place. Black sand beaches and views that are just breathtaking. We had brought a picnic with us and while eating a couple of small horses just roamed through our spot and then wandered back off into the jungle. Surreal. There are many great places to eat, but among our favorites were "Just Shakin" and "Jackie Rey's". "Jackie Rey's had only recently opened a second location in Hilo, but their Kailua-Kona location has received culinary accolades for years. We saved this for our last night all together and it was wonderful. We had a reservation for 6:30 and we left the house to go to the restaurant about 20 minutes ahead of time. (As I said, everything is convenient to this home.) What we didn't know was that the Christmas parade was taking place and the route literally blocked us from the restaurant. We tried so many directions and streets to get there is was crazy. We called the restaurant to explain that we would be late and to please hold our table. The folks at Jackie Rey's, in true Hawaiian fashion, simply said, "Enjoy the parade. We'll see you when you get here." And so we did. It was a great parade. So much fun. All I can say now is Mahalo, Mahalo, Mahalo Brian and Lisha. Amazing!!!!!!

Outstanding Ocean Views, Amazing House & Location

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely stunning place. Brian was a fantastic host. We had 5 people stay at this location, and it had room for a few more. Loved every part of it, it's been completely remodeled and you just can't beat the ocean view and sounds. We appreciated the fast internet connection. I would highly recommend this rental for anyone visiting Hilo, who wants to stay at an amazing location that is still just a short drive to everything. This spot made our trip to the east side of the island so much fun, thanks for being a great host!

Six stars!

  • 5 of 5

This is a big house with an unforgettable ocean view. The house itself is great too! Owners used top quality materials to build this house. The huge kitchen equipped with pots, cookware, spices and anything you need for cooking a meal. It has a breathtaking sunrise view with so many colors in the sky! Upstairs has two bed rooms. Each room can sleep two people. Downstairs has a huge room with two queen size beds and setting areas. It is a perfect vacation home for a party of eight people. We will be back again with our family and friends.

A fabulous house in a convenient location.

  • 5 of 5

There were ten of us but the house easily accommodated us . The kitchen was well stocked and huge. The views were wonderful and the deck overlooking the ocean was fabulous. Everything was well stocked from laundry essentials to plenty of linens and towels for everyone. Would definitely recommend this house to everyone.
