The property is in a nice quiet part of the island. We really enjoyed our time on the big island and the condo was very comfortable. We would stay here again.
Quiet, comfortable place to stay. Useful kitchen, laundry and beach amenities. A convenient location to great beaches. Two stories allow for early risers and late sleepers to coexist comfortably.
One of the best stays in the 40 years I’ve been going to the Kohala Coast. Very relaxing super host and just a great feeling of aloha.
Thanks Lionel and Michelle
We loved our stay. Location is perfect and it was lots of space. Owner was great to deal with. Highly recommend.
After a little confusion getting in we never stopped enjoying this home. I did wish for a Swiffer as we stayed three weeks and I had to use paper towels to clean the kitchen area.
There could be one more chair on the upstairs patio.
All of the beach items were very useful.
We had a wonderful stay. The place had everything we needed to enjoy hawaii. Also, any questions were quickly answered from the Host.
Our stay here, was first made easy by Lionel. He was very quick to answer and help out. The house is exactly as described and has all you need for your visit to Hawaii. It is in a great, very quiet neighborhood. His home is steps from the pool. His supplies for the beach and pool are more than enough. We had four adults, a toddler and an infant stay and we all had comfortable space. I would highly recommend this house to stay in.
We had a wonderful time here! Condo has everything we needed from kitchen appliances, dishes, utensils to beach equipment, towels, boogie boards and more! Great communication and would highly recommend this place. Thanks for everything and for helping make a fabulous vacation!
Check in was quick and easy. The provided information was very thorough. Communication with Lionel was fantastic. He was very responsive and helpful with any questions/needs from the time of booking through checkout. The home was clean and very well furnished. We did not need anything. There was plenty of beach gear and pool toys. A high chair and pack and play provided for an infant. Even 2 bikes! Kitchen had plenty of cooking supplies and even came with a good assortment of spices/dry goods. We really appreciated the provided laundry detergent so we could stay on top of laundry. We would definitely stay here again!
The place was nicely appointed, very clean, exactly as described on the listing. We will stay here again for sure when we bring our family with us to the island. Would likely stay somewhere a little closer to the action if we went without the kids =).
We had a great time at this property. Unit had everything we needed (missing a couple very minor things), beds were very comfortable, and Lionel was very helpful and prompt with the few questions we had. Like almost all locations on the Big Island, you'll need to drive to beaches, but this complex is very quite and has a great pool area.
The condo was beautifully furnished, clean and very comfortable for our stay. Had everything we needed. The owner answered our phone call immediately when we had a question. Great location. Close to many areas to visit, dine or shop.

The property was roomy and comfortable for my adult family of 5. The fans & air conditioning was great. The pool is small, but nicely close by. We enjoyed the Tommy Bahama chairs and 3 boogie boards provided. Found some nice beaches and a few good snorkeling spots.
The condo carpeting was Very dirty. They need a good cleaning. It also would of been nice if a mop was provided, besides a broom. We Stayed 2 weeks and would of used some cleaning supplies. Also we had to buy paper towels and TP, not a big deal, but annoying.
Property owner very accommodating and worked with us for early check-in. Centrally located property made it easy for us to travel easily around the island. We had a wonderful trip and will be back again.
Our family enjoyed staying at this house for our visit to the Kona side of the island. We were given the wrong code for check-in, but Lionel immediately called me when he noticed (via Ring camera outside the door) that we were having problems. The house is spacious and my husband was happy to find that the a/c worked very well. The beds were comfortable. The kitchen could have been a little better stocked (no black pepper, ziploc bags, foil or plastic wrap). The washer and dryer worked well. We enjoyed use of the main pool and spa which were nice, as well as the beach equipment (boogie boards, chairs, cooler, towels). The Waikoloa Colony Villas property is super clean and nice and we'd definitely come back. Thanks Lionel for a great stay!
We were unable to return the front door key to the lock box as it would not open for us to put it in.
We left the door key inside the condo as I was unable to contact the property manager before we departed at 6am.
I am congruent that I will not be charged
My family left this property having taken great care of it. We stay at the Villas every year and this was by far the worst experience we've had, anywhere. There were so many things that we needed (in the kitchen, cleaning supplies, etc) that weren't there. The owner has accused us of completely false claims. We weren't able to fully move in until 6pm on the day of check in due to it still being cleaned. We did everything that was asked of us upon check out (and more) and are still being asked to pay an additional $500. We emailed a very respectful rebuttal to his claims and he threatened us to call the police because of bullying. If I were you, I would NOT give this condo a second look.
We had a great stay! Loved how close the home was to the community pool. Super convenient to King and Queen’s shop, and beach access. The owner was superb! Great response time and communication.
Will definitely book again when we come back to Kona.
Good experience from first contact through actual arrival communications excellent
This property was awesome! Loved the location the unit was clean and well equipped with beach needs. The owner has been very kind and worked with us on having to reschedule. You can tell that they take pride in renting out a nice place! THANK YOU!
Beautiful property owner was nice. Love everything about it will stay again.
This condo is very nice and spacious for a family. We stayed here with my brother, his wife, and 3 year old, plus myself, wife, and 15 year old. Plenty of living space downstairs and 3 nice separated bedrooms upstairs. Large lanai just off the living room for sitting out in the fresh air.
The close proximity to the pool was an added bonus, it was immediately adjacent to the condo, as promised in the listing.
For the Waikoloa area, it is just as central to amenities and beaches as anywhere else, as you have to drive to the surrounding beaches, anyway. The condo is also very close to one of the Colony Villas gates, so coming in and out with a vehicle is very convenient.
Lastly, the host, Lionel, was always very responsive and helpful with our various inquiries.
I can’t say enough good things about this property and our host Lionel. The condo is spacious, super clean and the perfect location to shops, pools, walking trails and the beach. Lionel was great to work with through the whole process. One of our best VRBO experiences to date!
Comfortable beds, nice pillows, well stocked kitchen, outside space on a lovely lanai, just what we were hoping for. Spent several weeks at Lionel's place and got to do so much from this location. 30 minutes to Kailua-Kona, less than 2 hours to Volcano National Park and restaurants/shops in the resort. Pool was just out the door and Anaeho'omalu Beach just a 5 minute drive. This was our favorite beach for swimming and there are lots of beach "toys" to take with. The drying rack in the garage came in handy. The condo area is quiet. The best prices we found for groceries was at Target in Kailua-Kona but Island Gourmet was handy to pick up few things. Wonderful place.
We have stayed in this beautiful property twice now and look forward to staying again! Everything you need, really love the two bikes!
We had a wonderful time taking a break from the NE winter, the property was wonderful and the Condo was clean and perfect for our family. Everything was as advertised and Lionel was wonderful to work with. We would love to return and say here again
We really enjoyed our stay. The home is beautiful, clean, well-appointed, and conveniently located. The host is very responsive and easy to communicate with. My granddaughter enjoyed the pool across the lawn and my husband enjoyed the one near the clubhouse with the hot tub. We'd enjoy staying here again.
Place was perfect size for our family of 5. Pool right outside the front door. The kids loved that. The owner was a delight to deal with. Thank you so much.
Lionel's big island villa was absolutely perfect for our winter getaway with our kids and au pair. The house is spacious, nicely appointed, clean, and has everything a family needs in a home away from home. The master bedroom bed was probably the most comfortable we've ever slept on aside from our own! And the property is close to so many wonderful beaches, local shopping, and an easy drive to town for more affordable groceries. We loved it! Lionel was also wonderful and super responsive. We would highly recommend this vacation house and would definitely go back. Thanks so much for a great vacation, Lionel!
I loved staying at this villa with my family while in Hawaii. It’s located at the resort so it’s close to shops and beaches and it’s open and spacious and clean! Will be staying again for sure!!
This unit is spacious, comfortable and clean. Pantry items were stocked, there were plenty of linens and the beach items were helpful as well. We used the fitness center everyday. Highly recommend.
Lionel was super responsive and a great host. The house was beautiful and situated in a convenient location.
It was my family’s first trip to the Big Island and we are so grateful and happy to have had the opportunity to stay at Lionel’s home. It was beautiful, clean, comfortable and the perfect home away from home. The location was also perfect as it was close to some of the most beautiful beaches the island had to offer and it was close to a marketplace for anything and everything you need! I will definitely be booking Lionel’s place again the next time I visit the Big Island!
We brought 3 generations to Hawaii to celebrate our college graduates and we had a fabulous time. The condo was immaculate, fantastic first floor entrance, accommodating hosts, and a great location. The neighborhood is quiet and well kept and the lanai was the perfect afternoon relaxation point. Would definitely rent here again!
We loved our time at this house. Everything was exactly as described. The bed set up was perfect for a couple, 2 kids and grandma! The pool was literally right outside the door, which made it a great option for the kids to burn off extra energy. Kitchen was well stocked with supplies and basic spices/oils. We would stay again if in the area.
Fantastic 10 days at this property! After trying to check in at 11:30 pm with the wrong code from VRBO Lionel was very helpful getting us in his home so we could settle in. Had plenty of space and everything our family of 5 needed to be comfortable. Having all the necessary beach gear was the golden ticket!
You will NOT be disappointed
Wonderful location for best beach on island and exploring upper and eastern regions. From sea level to 14,000 feet adventure above the clouds on Mauna Kea, it was a delight as pictured.
This was a fantastic property with close access to the pool- the kids went swimming pretty much everyday. Plenty of space for the family and owner was responsive and took great care of us. Really glad we stayed with them through COVID and were able to reschedule.
We really enjoyed our stay at Lionel's beautiful townhome. It's well equipped, decorated in good taste and very clean. It's in a very close location to the pools and golf courses. Also, it's only 5 mins drive to the supermarket, Kings shops, and the beach. Be sure to check out the gorgeous sunsets at the Lava Lava Beach Club. Lionel was very responsive to all my questions during our stay. We hope to book another trip back to Hawaii and will look forward to staying in this beautiful place again.
Wonderful place, close to everything including A-Bay and easy access to all Kohala stuff we enjoy. The Kitchen is well appointed and spacious. The rooms/beds were all perfect and we had a great time there.
