OCEANFRONT, MAGNIFICENT 3RD-FLOOR CORNER PENTHOUSE. 4000 MILE, 180 DEGREE VIEW

Keauhou Condo Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedroom, 2 Bath, With Panoramic Ocean Views, Gourmet Kitchen and a Huge Lanai.

*** For more details and more pictures, go to our website at Bigwavehawaii com***

The Big Wave Penthouse is arguably in the best location on the Big Island. Consider this:

• Facing west, you're guaranteed a front-row seat every evening to a spectacular and colorful sunset. You'll think you're on a (very stable) cruise ship.

• You're literally feet from the ocean. Construction setback rules now preclude this for new developments.

• There are only 12 condo units per building and there are acres of greenbelt between and around them.

• You're well removed from Alii Drive, the busy main access road to all Kailua-Kona ocean-front properties.

• You'll be away from other developments. The Keauhou Surf and Racket Club is bordered on the north by Kahalu'u Beach and on the south by a golf course. Because of this low density, traffic within and around the complex is very light. And it's quiet.

• You'll be on the top floor, in a corner unit. Only the top floor units have soaring, 20-foot vaulted ceilings, very large lanais and sweeping ocean views.

• You're within walking distance of the Keauhou Shopping Center where you can find a grocery store, several fine restaurants and shops of many kinds

About John and Linda McCluskey

We've been frequent travelers to the Big Island, our favorite destination, and we've stayed in many houses and condos, but when we saw the Big Wave Penthouse we knew we would never see a better, more lovely place and knew we had to buy it. We hope you'll share this beautiful home with us and enjoy a bit of true Hawaii aloha spirit.

John and Linda McCluskey purchased this condo in 2012

Why John and Linda McCluskey chose Keauhou

The oceanfront view is incredible and we were impressed by the condo's location, in a gorgeous, impeccably landscaped, 14 acre sanctuary. Hawaiian royalty used to live on the grounds; they knew where the best location on the Big Island was.

It's close to everything but the property is tranquil, quiet and peaceful.

What makes this condo unique

This a very large home. Including the lanai, there's nearly 1500 sq. ft. of living space. The wide-open floor plan and soaring, 20' ceilings makes it seem even larger.

Original Hawaiian art is displayed and 50's period furniture from well-know designers such as Paul Frankl, Paul McCobb and Heywood Wakefield is both beautiful and comfortable.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for sharing your beautiful condo with us. It was everything we wanted and more. Beautiful sunsets and such a joy to hear the ocean waves, birds singing and seeing the whales!!! Mahalo!

We miss the view!

  • 5 of 5
My husband, our daughter, and I just returned from a wonderful week in the Big Wave Penthouse, and we highly recommend it. LOCATION: There's that splendid view of the always-interesting ocean and the each-one-unique sunsets, but the location of the complex is also great. It's near enough to tourist destinations without being in the middle of the action. COMFORT: Not only is it lovely, but the condo contained pretty much anything we needed. We made good use of the beach gear (coolers, boogie boards, towels, umbrella) and were grateful for the computer, printer and paper. We frequently referred to the recent edition of the Big Island Revealed guidebook. The kitchen was well-stocked, everything was clean, and we happily did some laundry during the week. CUSTOMER SERVICE: The owner, John, was responsive and friendly and genuinely interested in making sure we were comfortable and enjoying his beautiful place. Top-notch!

Outstanding Views and Everything Immaculate For Your Stay.

  • 4 of 5
Views from this Condo were outstanding. The condo was beautifully clean upon arrival and everything possible had been thought of for our stay.
The Owner was superb from start to finish in providing advice and ensuring our stay would be memorable.
We had one slight issue in which the outside of the unit was painted during our stay and the painters were not friendly and invaded your privacy. Understanding the Owner did not have much say on this, he made every endeavour to ensure we were left with a feeling of satisfaction.

Sunset Dinners...Oceanside

  • 5 of 5
As promised, this condo is literally a stone's throw from the ocean, facing west....every evening we were treated to a stunning sunset from the comfort of our lanai. Close enough to the water to be lulled to sleep by the waves crashing into the rocks, but far enough where we weren't getting sprayed by the water (like some of the units we saw further down the coastline).

While the view was the definite highlight, the rest of the condo was very nice too. Big, clean and tastefully decorated. Huge fridge and an additional wine cooler (great for foodies). Stocked with pretty much everything you would need (even down to spare batteries), and both bedrooms had ensuite bathrooms which was a plus. 2nd bedroom was East facing and would get pretty warm even with the blinds shut and screens open, but it had two fans in there so it wasn't too bad.

Nice resort and our unit was a short walk to the pool. There was also a shopping mall complex just a short walk up the hill, for groceries, pharmacy, restaurants and even a cool farmer's market on Saturdays. A good snorkelling beach (not sandy) was under 1/2 mile down the road, and a couple of minutes further was a nice sandy beach (White Sands). No gym onsite or nearby (had to drive 10-15 minutes into Kailua for that) but not really a big deal compared to the numerous other pluses this condo has going for it.

Last comment is about the owner, John. I've stayed at a few nice condos in Hawaii before, but John has to be one of the most helpful, responsive and generous condo owners that I've had the pleasure of dealing with. From the complimentary wine and greeting card waiting for us when we arrived, to addressing any questions or concerns we had promptly and completely, to a number of other hospitable gestures too numerous to write here, John was fabulous.

Overall, great condo, great location, great owner. Don't think you can go wrong with this one.

Owner's Response: Mahalo for your generous compliments. I can sense you were touched by the Aloha Spirit alive in the BigWave Penthouse and hope you return for more at another time. When you do we'll be ready to make it happen. Aloha.

Perfect Big Island location

  • 5 of 5
Wonderful Big Island location close to excellent snorkeling, boat cruises, grocery store, restaurants, etc., yet quiet, peaceful, and scenic location. Still, just a few minutes drive to busy Kailua Town. The condo was very well and beautifully furnished and had everything needed for a great vacation with an excellent view of the ocean where you may see whales and/or dolphins passing by. The owners have done their level best to ensure that guests had all the materials and information needed for the condo and its contents. They were extremely helpful in helping to prepare for our time in their rental property. There's only one glitch (no doubt out of their hands) -- there's no place to leave baggage before or after the rental period. But, for us, it was worth the hassle in exchange for a few days in the closest thing to paradise. It's hard for us to imagine a better place to stay while on the Big Island -- or any island in Hawaii for that matter. For our twentieth wedding anniversary, it was the perfect location to celebrate with good friends. If you don't feel you've got all you need here for a great Big Island experience, you probably won't be satisfied anywhere else. A standard few rental properties will achieve -- great job and sincere thanks John! Your dedication to creating the perfect island rental made our vacation an unmitigated success.

Big Wave is awesome

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Big Wave for 6 weeks and had a fantastic time. It is very well supplied with everything that you need for a great time on the Big Island. It looks just like the pictures on the website and the location can't be beat. Off the main road in a quiet condo development with a pool, tennis courts, BBQs, and the unit is right on the water. The owners are great and very interested in making your stay memorable. We were celebrating a 50th anniversary and enjoyed everything we did while we were here including swimming, snorkeling, boogie boarding, golfing, hiking, and just enjoying meals on the lanai watching the beautiful sunsets. There is a nice shopping center right up the hill with a good grocery store, CVS, movie theater and several restaurants. The best snorkeling beach on the island is within walking distance. We look forward to returning next year for more incredible experiences.

The Big Wave Penthouse celebrates early Hawaiian style throughout. We've taken care to integrate all the elements of the warm and colorful Hawaiian ethos in every aspect of the layout and design.

Life in Hawaii revolves around the water and the beautiful Pacific Ocean is front and center and visible from nearly all the areas of the penthouse. Soaring 20-foot foot ceilings, massive sliding glass doors and floor-to ceiling windows blur the distinction between inside and outside..
