DIRECT-OCEANFRONT, MAGNIFICENT CORNER PENTHOUSE WITH SPECTACULAR 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: www.BigWaveHawaii.com

or click the link at the bottom of the listing***

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'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

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

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.

This a very large home. Including the lanai, there's nearly 1700 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.

Perfect Big Island location

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Mar 16, 2014
  • Stayed: Mar 2014
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

  • Submitted: Feb 14, 2014

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.

Gorgeous ocean view and sound

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jan 4, 2014

This unit had everything advertised and more. Fantastic location to walk 10 minutes to a snorkeling beach or for groceries. Pool was great when the beach was closed and tennis was great in the evening. You'll need a car for the rest of the island, but it was nice to have walking options. Beautiful attention to detail, gorgeous location, and great air flow through the unit, made it quite a vacation even for one of us that had to stay in the unit all day for a couple days. (Keauhou Urgent care only a 2 minute drive, near the grocery and great service.) John's attentiveness was prompt and personable. With the two bedrooms and bathrooms attached, I'd say it's best for 1-2 couples, or parents with one older child or two younger children. Our favorite food option: "Da Poke Shack."

Owner's Response: Mahalo for your 5-star review. It's unfortunate someone in your party had to sample the Keauho Urgent Care but I can't think of a better place to recover than in the BigWave Penthouse. I hope your Christmas celebration wasn't dampened by illness. May all your travels be safe and enjoyable and, hopefully, will include another stay with us.

Awesome!

BigWave Penthouse is an unbelievably beautiful and comfortable condo. Our family of 6, 4 kids 10-18 had plenty of room and the Wi-Fi and laptop were a plus. John was a great host and made sure everything was in order. The location is very centrally located, no congestion or noise and shopping is right around the corner. The view is quintessential “Big Island”. It was easy to fall asleep every night to the sound of the waves crashing on the cliff; a few times right on the lanai…morning coffee was a great way to start the day. There are so many things to do on Hawaii; it was great to come “home” to this beautiful place after a tiring day. We really didn't want to leave!!!!

It couldn't be any better than last year. But it was!

We stayed in the BigWave Penthouse about a year ago and loved the place. I really didn't think it could get better but there have been many upgrades since we were here last. A big, comfy king bed is now in the master bedroom and a queen replace the two twins in the second bedroom (a much better arrangement in my opinion.) There are also a new front-load washer and dryer that replaced what I thought was a pretty nice apartment style stacked unit but the new ones are soooo much better. The condo was spotless and everything worked perfectly. What delightful place.

We got front row seats to some spectacular waves just before we left. What an excellent way to see them. I would guess 20-footers were crashing on the lava while we relaxed on the lanai and watched the show (not even any wind that day.)

We see that the calender books pretty far in advance so we're setting up for next year right now. Don't take our spot!

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..
