The space

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, micro oven, blender, 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. A solar outside shower to add to the 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, or Luna's all only minutes away! Aloha!

This place is amazing! We went for our honey moon, and Craig's place is the perfect location to see everything you need to see in Waimea. Craig is an incredible host, and loads the house up with goodies.

Craig’s place was by far the best Airbnb experience I’ve had to date! Great communication, spotless paces, thoughtful amenities, beach gear, fresh flowers, and delicious refreshments. The location was perfect for a less touristy part of the island, but still close to good resta…

Craig’s Waimea home is lovely and the lower level is very private and well appointed. The cool weather was a nice change of pace from the Kona area but less rainy than Hilo side of the island. Loved sitting in the hot tub both mornings and evenings. Mahalo! We love our stay. Sar…

We had a fantastic stay at Craig's place on our way from Hilo to Kona! We had to change our travel plans due to the ongoing eruptions from Kīlauea and found Craig's place in the heart of Waimea. It was the perfect place to recharge and relax after driving the Hāmākua coast from H…

We had a wonderful time at Craig's place. Being on a little terrace with hot tub and night sky view from lanai was a lovely way to finish the day at the beach.
