Our experience was amazing. Our host went above and beyond from initial contact to ensure our stay was as idyllic as possible. The house was a perfect retreat with everything you could ever need: great location with full facilities in calm surroundings with an incredible view across Kona. The host's attention to detail was second to none and he provided a perfectly tailored amount of guidance for things to do and check-ins. We would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending to others and would love to return sometime in the future. Mahalo Craig: you were an integral part of THE perfect vacation.

This was by far the most enjoyable Airbnb experience I have had. Location aside (which was fantastic), Craig was incredibly hospitable and literally went (way) out of his way to make our trip run smoothly. He went beyond simply opening his beautiful home to us. We were lucky enough to stay here for a week and it was the perfect base to explore the big island from. Fantastic views, great location, and a spacious house with great open areas and private areas for quiet every now and then. Would love to comes back every year.

We just stayed in Craig's wonderful home for 4 weeks. We couldn't have chosen a lovelier place, nor a nicer, more generous host. This house, on the dry side of Waimea, overlooks the town with views to the ocean and Mauna Kea. Centrally located, very clean, spacious, great bed, and fully stocked beautiful kitchen. We can't wait to return!

We had a wonderful time in his marvelous house. Our familiy were fully satisfied with his hospitality. This was our second time visit there. We would definitely chose his house next time if available. Thanks a lot with nice memories. Mahalo Kiyoshige

The house was exactly as advertised, and Craig (the owner) was terrific. He met us at the house when we arrived, showed us around with plenty of details, stocked the kitchen with plenty of items, some of which he purchased just so we would have them for the first day before getting to a grocery store. Then he left, and left us to our own devices completely. He texted to ask about our stay and to make weather predictions after a rainy day, answered questions I had, and only came by once to deal with garbage (after first ascertaining that the proposed visit was at a good time for us). His remarkable helpfulness was on full display after we had left his house for the airport in Kona. When we were ready to pass through security, my son realized he had left his wallet with all his IDs at the house. And because of our convoluted traveling plans, the only time during the rest of our trip we could get the wallet was that day. Craig drove the wallet to the airport, my son made a slightly later flight than the rest of us, and all was well. There aren't many people who would have taken 2 hours out of their day to help out a (at that point) former renter. Thank you again, Craig!

Craig is the most generous host we have ever had in over 25 years of renting vacation rentals all over the world. The monthly rental rate of the perfectly located big island luxury home was considerably fair. Craig met us for a tour of the home and provided food and drinks to enable us to stay in the first night. The view from the deck of both Mauna Kea and the ocean sunsets can not be duplicated. We had several couples visit during our stay, with up to 4 couples comfortably staying at one time. Craig checked on us frequently and brought fresh flowers every week. I especially appreciated the daily newspaper, varied reading materials, grocery store discount cards,chefs kitchen, tvs in all bedrooms, the hot tub and the feeling of living like a local on the most authentic Hawaiian island. The north central island location in the well appointed town of Waimea is a great home base for exploring the island. We would definitely enjoy the opportunity to stay at Craigs home again! Mahalo, Craig.

One of the reasons I chose this rental was due to the fabulous reviews not only about the house itself but about Craig. My expectations on all counts were exceeded. Craig welcomed us with champagne, balloons and flowers as it was our wedding anniversary! He made u feel like family coming to visit and stay. The house was stocked with all basics any guest would appreciate (and we did!) such as water, juice, coffee, wine and beer! There was also a big bowl of delicious snacks. We chose to cook a few nights and it was great having the pantry filled with basics and all kitchen gadgets and tableware. The house was spotless and extremely comfortable (we rented the whole house). We got into the Waimea lifestyle pretty quickly (i.e. relax!!). And it was Craig that did it all- -from being available 24/7 but without being intrusive, to recommending local attractions to truly caring about not only our vacation, but us as people. I can't recommend Craig enough. We have rented properties all over, but have never met anyone who was as caring and helpful an owner. We recommend this experience for anyone who wants to get to know the island and "feel like a local" while living on one of the most beautiful spots. You get to wake up literally with the sunrise slowly streaming into your bedroom and the sunset wrapping around you a you make a delicious dinner with local produce and meet and drink yet another Longboard beer!! Maholo Craig!!

I have lived in Waimea, on the Big Island, for 40 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!
Aloha!
