Property description

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.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: Camp Crawford is a moveable feast. Having spent over twenty years in Hawaii, we joined the Foreign Service in 2010 and spent nearly four years in Frankfurt. Now in Washington, D.C. for a tour of duty, we are enjoying seeing Randall and Winston complete their High School education and Clarissa start University in Rotterdam.

Why the Owner Chose Hilo:
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....

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Fabulous ocean vistas, sounds of the sea, and the Big Island to explore...
