Overview

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!

REMARKABLY BEAUTIFUL & CLEAN WITH AMAZING LOCATION & VIEW!!!

  • 5 of 5

The owner communicated us with promptness and aloha from our very first inquiry, throughout the trip, and even as we returned home. We were there for Merrie Monarch and in desperate need of ti leaves for a ceremony and he quickly offered his help and followed up by asking how things went. He genuinely cares about the home and the culture of the island.

The home is classy and the accommodations and amenities were luxurious. There is artwork throughout the home and kitchen and bathrooms have state-of-the-art appliances and fixtures. It was fun having a Toto Toilet and rain showerhead with full body shower. Keyless entry for the door made it easy for people on different schedules to go in and out. Being so close to town without being in town was the perfect location and being able to see Hilo Bay was breathtaking. Halfway through the trip, we even got a text from the cleaner asking if we needed anything or had any questions. She was very personable as well. And as a rarity on the island, we enjoyed having trash service. Everywhere else we've been on the island requires us to dump trash at a transfer station. Not sure how this neighborhood is able to swing twice a week trash service!

The hospitality and special touches from the owner sets this property apart from other rentals we have experienced. We hope to make it back there again one day!!!

Need better house keeping

  • 3 of 5

It's a beautiful house sittting by the ocean with nice layout and decoration. However the downstairs carpet is very teared down. The house is not in a mint/clean condition when we checked in, which is disappointing considering how much cleaning fee we paid for just 2 day's stay. Remember to bring your own toiletries because there isn't any in the house. We could not find any dish washer detergent neither, so we have to washing dishes by hands. Overall I think the stay would be so much better if a better house keeping could be provided.

Beautiful home, incredible view!

  • 5 of 5

The home is stunning throughout and the view of the ocean was breathtaking. The house is equipped with everything you need. There was more than enough rooms/beds for our family of five. We saw a few whales at a distance. We truly enjoyed the sounds of the waves crashing against the shore and the various birds to wake us in the morning. The location is great, not too far (about 8 minutes drive) from the main town of Hilo where you can do some shopping and eating. I would definitely recommend this place and would rent this place again.

Fantastic home!

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful home with an even better location. Watch whales from the ocean front deck, close to Hilo and a great place to base yourself on the east coast of the big island. Very helpful owners and very communicative, which makes for a great combination along with the beautiful house. Highly recommended.

INCREDIBLE and TOTALLY AWESOME.

  • 5 of 5

Woke up to full red sun which have NEVER seen. Watched whales breach, enjoyed sounds of crashing waves, birds, chickens and frogs. BBQ grill not available which was understandable and fine. House had everything else. Will definitely go back.

Very relaxing and peaceful.
