Overview

Hilo House Rental Photos and Description

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.

About Brian Crawford

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.

Brian Crawford purchased this house in 2006

Why Brian Crawford 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....

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!

Merrie Monarch Experience

  • 5 of 5

This house is beautiful! An excellent location, just outside of downtown Hilo. It makes a great base for sightseeing throughout the island. We had the opportunity to attend the 2015 Merrie Monarch Festival and it was awesome experience! We loved the showers! We recommend this rental anytime and hope to come back some day!!

Fantastic Place

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. The home and views were fantastic. Plenty of room for all without feeling like we were on top of each other. We were entertained daily by the whales and would enjoy sitting and watching them for hours. The home is close to downtown Hilo and we enjoyed the shops and restaurants there. We were also close to the many activities to do while in Hilo. We would highly recommend this home for your vacation stay.

Amazing sight!

  • 5 of 5

This places was absolutely amazing! From the view to the steam shower with pebble flooring. I slept in the master bedroom downstairs on the king mattress, waking up to such a beautiful sight looking over the ocean was breath taking! I highly recommend this house for any group or family! Very spacious!

Beautiful house with a beautiful view

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay overlooking Hilo Bay, with the wonderful sound of breaking waves throughout the day and night and the additional sound of the coqui frogs at night. The house was beautiful and very convenient to town and many sights. It is really close to Rainbow Falls, Akaka Falla, and Hawaii Tropical Botanical Gardens at Onomea Bay. It is also not far at all from Umauma Falls, Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, Kapoho Tide pools, and other interesting sights along the southeast coast. And don't forget to visit the farmers market in downtown Hilo on Wednesdays and Saturdays. Eating on the lanai was wonderful, especially with the frequent sightings of whales and dolphins just offshore. Minor maintenance issues were handled promptly by Melanie, the local property manager. She was awesome to work with.

Owner's Response: So glad you managed to find all the amazing sites that are close to our home. Each and every Hawaiian Island is a special treasure but we are totally biased when it comes to the windward side of the Big Island - nothing compares!
