    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.

    Best VRBO experience yet! Condo location is perfect and the owners thought of everything to make our stay wonderful. The sunsets from the lanai were stunning and listening to the waves crashing on the rocks was mesmerizing. Could not have been a better experience

    Such a beautiful property. It felt warm and welcoming from the beginning. Every day after being out and about snorkeling, sightseeing, going to the beach or eating out , it felt like coming home at the end of the day. There were also small appliances such as blender, coffee pot and toaster in addition to pots and pans and lots of dishes, glassware and silverware. I would definitely recommend the Big Wave to anyone!

    Our stay on the big island was unplanned as we needed to divert our plans due to the Maui fires. Luckily John’s accommodations in Kona were available for our dates! The Big Wave penthouse was gorgeous, spacious and well stocked. We were travelling as a family of four; with our 2 teenaged daughters. It was perfect for us - I imagine it would be perfect for everyone as well. The condominium complex had a nice pool, tennis courts and numerous bbq’s to use throughout. Thank you!

    Great location especially if you like to snorkel and dive, which we do. Good recommendations from the owner on activities and dining. Short drive South to two great snorkeling spots. Also a short drive to the harbor for Manta Ray Snorkel or dive trips. View is awesome and the large balcony allowed our family of five adults to have plenty of room while lounging and drying gear. As to the comments about not having A/C we were here the last week of July, taking a late shower to cool down from the days activities and running the fans did the trick, very comfortable overnight.

    Absolutely breathtaking views. The condo had everything we needed, coolers, umbrella, boogie boards, towels, etc. Very open and spacious. High end appliances. I could sit on that lanai and watch the sunsets forever!

    Very nice and well appointed condo with a stunning view of the ocean. We stayed with friends and none of us ever got tired of watching the waves and listening to the birds in the morning and watching the sunset at night. Excellent communication with the owners (John and Linda). Everything went very smooth. Walking distance to a nice little snorkel spot, and to a shopping plaza for supplies (groceries, liquor, and drugstore). Would definitely stay again!

    My family and I (Including an 8 month old baby) stayed at The Big Wave for our short vacation in Kona and we fell in love with the house and the view. So many memories were made in this home and we can’t thank you enough for your hospitality and constant communication to ensure our stay was going well. We were a little hesitant about this home not have AC in the humidity but the cross winds with the fans on and all windows open lead to the most peaceful nights sleep with a natural sound machine of waves crashing just outside our window. All in all we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Big Wave and are already planning when to come back for a longer period of time!

    The unit was nicely decorated and well furnished. It was clean and the appliances were very nice. Best of all, it had an excellent ocean view. Having a lanai on two sides of the unit made it feel very outdoorsy. It is in a nice quiet area but not too far of a drive to the downtown area. There is also a shopping center, including a grocery store, within walking distance (but up a bit of a hill). John the owner was a good communicator ahead of time and gave very good information and tips on what to do and where to dine in the area. We would definitely stay in the unit again!
