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...

Amazing, Awesome and Well Worth It

  • 5 of 5
Mahalo Brian for an amazing place. Brian was accomodating and such a pleasure to contact. He answered all my questions, responded quickly and efficiently. I highly recommend anyone to stay here. The pictures don't do this place justice at all. Everything that you need is in the home, we barely wanted to leave because of the beauty of this place. It was very relaxing, everything was clean and oh the amenities were just great. Words can't express how much we loved this place. Definitely would love to return at another time in the future. You won't be disappointed at all.

Amazing Hilo Ocean Front Property

  • 5 of 5
Brian,
We cannot thank you enough for sharing your beautiful home with us.

We celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary here on Friday.
Took your advice went up to Mauna Kea,14000ft spent time at the observatory, the 360 views were absolutely amazing.
Hiked and climbed all over Kilauea volcano, the better part of 3 days hiking there.
We did the Umauma zip line, that was a certainly a fun experience.
Drove to Kona one day, made our lunch at the beach and hung around there for a while.

Just packing up now and getting ready to head to Oahu..

This house is fabulous! Decorated beautifully and truly exactly what you see online but better. We weren't there long before we were sending videos of it to our family and friends.
Wonderful ocean front property with an amazing view. As soon as you enter the house, you immediately see the ocean. Everything is beautiful, it is very open and makes you feel at home. The house was clean, all the necessary amenities were provided.
A lovely place, convenient, peaceful, tranquil, and private. Great place to just sit and inhale the ocean breeze from either of the 2 Lānai’s..
We highly recommend this fantastic property to anyone wanting a true vacation.
Brian was a pleasure to work with and thought of everything. Jack & Jeanne Sept 30, 2014

Owner's Response: Jack and Jeanne
We are always thrilled when our guests choose to celebrate a special event like an anniversary at our home. It was an additional pleasure to help you with information on our favorite adventure hikes around Kilauea and Waipio. The Big Island is an amazing place and will welcome you back as soon as you are ready to return. In the meantime I will search for new paths for you to forge!
With fond Aloha,
Brian and family

pictures are real and place is very good

  • 5 of 5
arrived to the place at night and was able to find the place relatively easily. open the door as described by the owner and found the place to be spacious with fresh linens and towels. the ocean view was breathtaking and the place was very spacious. I couldn't find out how to turn the hot water on so we showered cold but the owner had the water heat fixed the next day while we were out. we have a family of 6, 5 adults and 1 toddler and the place could have easily fit more. nothing negative but we found the tile floor could have use a nice mr.clean mop to make it cleaner. windows didn't have screens but since we came from a city, it took a while to get used to the bugs flying outside the windows and occasionally they come in. just need to be sure to leave the lights on outside if you have the lights on inside the house with open windows. we found that the outside lights would keep the bugs relatively happy. other than what was mentiond above, the place is just breathtaking (excellent view) + great outdoor shower.. bonus if you catch the banana trees on the property at the right time for some free fresh bananas. I gave the banana tree a couple light shook and was able to get on average 4-5 bananas each morning.

Owner's Response: Thanks, Jimmy! Glad you enjoyed our newly relocated family home. We so enjoy the neighborhood and after having to sell our other house down the street (see VRBO listing 116922 and it's 60+ reviews) it was a great relief to be able to make this our home and be able to share it with others. Please come with your family and stay with us again. Aloha, Brian
