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 and east 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.

• Although the Big Wave is not air-conditioned, none is needed. The cooling trade winds keep the interior delightfully cool during all but the hottest days. For the rare times when the trade winds are still, efficient, high-capacity ceiling fans will keep you comfortable.

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 Kona Coast

The oceanfront view is incredible and we were impressed by the condo's location, in a gorgeous, impeccably landscaped, 17-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 the 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!

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

The Big Wave is even better than it looks in pictures. It was a perfect place for our family to stay while exploring the Big Island. The location and views from the deck can not be beat. The unit is well-appointed, with plenty of comfort and amenities. John and Linda were excellent hosts with quick response times and a genuine interest in providing an enjoyable stay. Overall an excellent experience and we definitely hope to come back! Thank you!!

As Wonderful and Beautiful as advertised

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful condo on the ocean. The setting is gorgeous with all the amenities. It looks just like the pictures only better. All the little thing such as coolers, tennis rackets, swimming noddle, etc are there. The kitchen was well stocked with dishes and cook ware. Loved drinking coffee on the lanai in the morning and cocktails in the evening. The grounds of the gated community were impeccable and we always felt secure. We were two couples and all we really needed was more time. I would recommend it to anyone. I would visit again without hesitation.

Beautiful condo, ideal location

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful, 10-day stay at the Big Wave Penthouse. Very nice decor, upscale, Hawaiian art and decorative touches down to the small details. There are soaring beamed ceilings which the lower floors of these condos do not have. The tall windows all around and wrap-around lanai make you feel like you are outside all the time and the unit is very private due to top floor, big tree between buildings and being a corner unit. Big Wave is an deal location to explore the island--you can be in the village of Kona in minutes, it is close to a supermarket and shave ice place in the shopping center, good local restaurants. We appreciated all the beach equipment which you can't bring with you on the plane such as coolers, beach chairs, beach towels and boogie boards. This was our fifth trip to Hawaii, our second to the Big Island. We have decided that being right next to the ocean is the best way to go. It is peaceful and restorative to listen to the waves as you drop off to sleep and sit and watch the water with your coffee in the morning. We recommend this place and hope to return some day.

Beyond our Expectations!

  • 5 of 5

Really beautiful condo - thoughtfully furnished with every need to make your stay comfortable.

Truly the nicest place we have ever rented. The owner is concerned and helpful, full of tips to make your stay as easy as possible. Totally worth 5 stars . This was our first trip to the Big Island after many trips to Maui & Kauai and we will definitely be going back - just hope we can still rent this fabulous penthouse.

This condo is a class act! Thoughtful touches throughout. Comfortable beds- particularly the 2nd bedroom. Clean. Very well maintained . Beautiful bamboo flooring. Floor to ceiling windows throughout so no view is impeded. Owners are a delight to work with. We will be back!

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..
