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 was our 3rd time staying at Craig's since 2013, and it's still as wonderful as ever. The space is really cute and comfortable, with incredible views of Mauna Kea and stars from the lanai. Craig is a wonderful host and it was such a pleasure to see him again. Also, Waimea is such a pleasant area of the Big Island to stay in, as the temperature is cool at night while still being easily accessible to many other parts of the island. Can't wait to return soon!

Craig made our stay extra special. He had champagne waiting for us in the fridge, and even called ahead to the restaurant where we were staying to let them know we were on our honeymoon. He is friendly and very thoughtful--and the accommodations were exactly what we were hoping for.

Craig was an excellent host- super attentive and responsive to our requests, but always respectful of privacy and never intrusive. His studio was exactly as advertised- well-maintained and very comfortable, plus he was really generous with drinks and snacks! We loved being in Waimea and would highly recommend Craig's studio.

All the best things about using AirBnb are to be found by staying at Craig's place. Lovely Waimea neighborhood, fantastic views (you can see Mauna Kea, Mauna Loa, and Hualalai... while soaking in the hot tub), and a low-key, generous host. The space is well appointed, comfortable, and quiet. Craig went out of his way to help us out with a few things, including providing a pack and play for our baby boy. We loved walking down the hill to the Waimea Stream Trail and grabbing lunch at Pau's.

Really enjoyed staying at Craig's place. The place is lovely and has everything we needed. Craig has been very helpful and great in answering any questions I had. The welcome basket with goodies and drinks in the fridge was very nice for our weekend stay.

Warm friendly welcome from Craig, easy to find and centrally located. Loved the flowers and special anniversary gifts on arrival. Amazing views of Mauna Kea and stars @ night from the lanai.

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!
PS - I only have one home (Waimea Big Island) in Hawaii and do all by financial transactions through Airbnb.
