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!

Paradise found

  • 5 of 5

The house and furnishings are gorgeous and the views are breathtaking. The house has a perfect location to all the attractions: The botanical gardens, Hilo, Valcano National Park , beaches and restaurants. We witnessed sunrises, swam with sea turtles, saw bananas, coconuts, avocados, and so many amazing tropical flowers and plants. We truly had a magical time.

Perfect Hilo Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

What a fabulous, warm and comfortable home! It is exactly as pictured, and our family of 6 could not have found a more perfect home for our Hilo vacation June 29-July6. We even got to watch the July 4th fireworks display over the bay as we ate dinner on the ocean front lanai!!

Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home, we hope to return again soon.
