Enjoy a very private apartment in the heart of Waimea, at the base of the Kohala mountains. A separate lanai entrance opens to a lush backyard with avocado trees and views of the volcanoes in the distance. The covered lanai has outdoor seating with a 4 person hot tub, and a large grill for evening meals. Inside is a 46" flat screen HD TV with a surround sound stereo, and wifi. The open style has a comfy full bed for two and a blowup bed for your kids. The kitchenette is fully stocked with a hot plate, toaster oven, frig, and a dishwasher. The bathroom has a nice, large shower.
Hike to waterfalls from your door, or be at gorgeous beaches in 15 minutes. Beach chairs, boogie boards, and beach towels are there for you as well as everything else you will need for ocean fun. Walk, catch the shuttle, or drive from this exclusive neighborhood to Waimea for shopping, restaurants, and farmers markets. Spend your days exploring the island, come home to soak in the hot tub, and head out for dinner at Merrimans, Pau, Red Water cafe, Luna's or the Blue Dragon - all only minutes away! Aloha!

We were thrilled when we checked in to Craig's place in Waimea. It was super clean, had everything we could possibly need and more, and Craig was super nice, friendly, fun and helpful. We felt very safe, welcome and at home. He also left us chocolates and bubbly for our honeymoon which was a sweet touch! We will definitely stay again if we are ever in Waimea, and will recommend to friends and family. Terrific value.

When AirBnB adds a sixth star option, Craig and his place will earn it. The place is absolutely GORGEOUS. Located in a residential setting on a hill close but not too close to the town of Waimea, it is a quiet and tranquil place to enjoy. Its million dollar views of the sunset, Mauna Kea, Waimea, and the ocean can't be beat and this is a must visit spot for us when on the island. There is great hiking to be had near his house so be sure to get to know Craig and you won't be sorry! This guy is a legend. He truly knows how to show hospitality and provide his guests with a rejuvenating space and Big Island experience.

We had a wonderful time staying at Craig's place! The apartment is secluded, romantic, and has beautiful views. We loved hiking in the hills, walking to town, and relaxing in the hot tub. We have stayed in many Airbnbs and never had such a phenomenal host as Craig - he's a pro! We highly recommend this spot as a wonderful home base to explore the island.

Craig is an extremely generous and thoughtful host, and his place is the perfect base camp. Easy access to Mauna Kea, Hapuna and Mauna Kea beaches, as well as the beautiful valleys at the north end of the island. Waimea is also a very charming town! The Fish and the Hog is a great place to eat) The hot tub was a perfect way to end each day!

A great little spot to stay. Craig was an awesome host, leaving us treats and a few extra touches that you don't get at a lot of Air BnBs - soaps, shampoo, robes, drinks... very comfy bed, very cozy in-law style suite. Private deck to yourself with BBQ and hot tub. Had delicious dinner at Redwater nearby. Short 15-20 min drive to beautiful Hapuna Beach. Craig had beach towels, chairs and umbrella to use which was great. Would definitely recommend staying here!

I have lived in Waimea, on the Big Island, for 39 years. As the Director of Tennis at Mauna Kea Beach Hotel, which is rated in the top 10 in the world, I take pride in my job and the life that I have created here. Over that time, I have volunteered in the community, coaching kids in soccer and tennis, and fortunate to have been inducted into the Big Island Sports Hall of Fame in June of 2005. It gives me great pleasure to see people of all ages having fun and gaining confidence through sports!
My daughters were born and raised here, in this beautiful community, on this incredible island. Now that they are grown and have their own lives elsewhere, I would like to share my home with others. I have stocked it with everything you will need, so just come, relax and have a wonderful island experience!
PS - I only have one home (Waimea Big Island) in Hawaii and do all by financial transactions through Airbnb.
