Our family of four greatly enjoyed our stay here. The location was great, the unit was well-maintained, and whenever we had questions, the owner was very responsive. We hope to return again soon.
Beautiful condo on second floor with access via stairs and elevator. Everything we needed was available. We really appreciated the posted notices and property binder with excellent explanations and island information. The inclusion of beach chairs, towels, coolers, etc. was appreciated. Our granddaughter enjoyed the kid's table.
Kolea never disappoints, and this unit is great. Comfortable with enough room for us and our boys, the condo was perfect, and the complex is great. Thanks, Cora!
Kolea luxury, absolutely perfect accommodations! Everything we needed to make our stay perfect! Cora was unbelievably accommodating and communication was superb! We have stayed in many vacation rentals, Cora’s place is up there with the best!!!
The pictures do not do this place justice. Beautiful unit and property. 10/10 would stay here again.
Very clean, comfortable space. However the single pool and jacuzzi were too small to accommodate the number of residents in Kolea and always very crowded. We also wished there were tennis or pickleball courts nearby.
We enjoyed our stay at Kolea 15L so much! We can't wait to go back to visit the island and hope it includes staying here.
The condo was wonderfully equipped especially the kitchen. We were able to put together a wonderful Christmas dinner with the well-eqipped kitchen and the built-in grill on the lanai. I loved sitting out on the lanai in the mornings enjoying my coffee and the views of the ocean to the right.
Cora was very pro-active in reaching out and communicating before, during and at the end of our visit during the check-out process.
This is the perfect condo for a family visit to the Big Island! The unit is large, well-equipped and spotless, with great outdoor space. Just steps away from the beach and a plush pool club. Walk to shopping and restaurants and the amazing ocean path. Communication with Cora and her property manager was instant, and check-in process could not have been easier. Highly Recommend!
We had to communicate with Cora multiple times because our trip was originally delayed by covid a year ago. Cora was very accommodating about rescheduling, our only complaint is that their condo is in high demand so it was hard to find a good date to do so! Then we requested an early check in since we were staying elsewhere for our first week on the island but wanted to move our groceries in, and Cora worked with us on that since there wasn’t anyone checking out that day which we very much appreciated.
Communication is very easy, via email before check in and then by group text with Cora and her island representative once checked in.
The condo (like all Kolea condos) is lovely and in the best location on the big island. This is a larger end unit 2 bedroom unit with two master baths. There are child friendly amenities like a plastic picnic table for little kids, lots of toys and floaties, and waterproof mattress pads.
We enjoyed our stay and would book this unit again.
Best equipped Vrbo we have ever stayed at. So comfortable! Second stay and we hope to return. Thank you Cora and Roger..
The owner was great to communicate with, answer questions, etc. very detailed with instructions.
I can’t say enough about Cora’s place, the location, cleanliness and overall perfection! My family enjoyed every minute of our time and found the proximity to the Queens and Kings shops perfect to grab food or do some shopping. We ate many of our meals in the unit as the kitchen is stocked so well that cooking was a breeze. Just a perfect trip at a perfect place!
Our family loved staying here. The highlights were the lanai, pool area, stocked beach fun closet, and proximity to ‘A’ beach. We’ll be back!
The condo was amazing! It was clean, inviting and wonderful. We will definitely be back! It was our first time to the Big Island and thoroughly enjoyed it. Cora was very engaging and proactive with checking in on us throughout the week to make sure we were having a great time! Mahalo!!!
Our stay here was amazing! The condo was very large and comfortable! The amenities were perfect, and we had everything we needed here for a wonderful stay. Both bathrooms and bedrooms were very spacious. We traveled here with two young children-4 and 6, and they loved and can’t wait to come back. Very nice kitchen setup, equipped with everything we needed. The access to the pool and beach was so convenient, and both spots were so great to visit. The hosts were easy to reach and helpful with anything we needed.
My family and I had a lovely visit in this beautiful, spotless, wonderfully located condo. The communication from the owner and the local contact was fantastic, they made sure we had everything we needed and check in was super easy. We really appreciated all the thought and care that was put into the little touches (like boogie boards and beach towels), and the kitchen was also very well appointed. Would love to visit again sometime!
Wonderful property....the beach is only a 5 min walk and it is an awesome beach. We snorkeled with sea turtles! The owner and property manager were great to work with! We had a fantastic experience all around!!!
Beautifully appointed condo, steps from the beach club and beach.
Kolea is a wonderful location and absolutely beautiful. The condo was fantastic. We loved it. The process was easy and the owner took good care of us and made sure that we were comfortable!
Absolutely beautiful! It is exactly as described and much, much more. The unit was CLEAN, well-stocked and organized. The resort is also beautifully maintained. Cora, the was a dream to work with and helped to keep our family vacation surprise! Thank you for sharing your piece of paradise and helping to make our family vacation even more memorable.
This was our second time staying at Cora's wonderful condo.
The condo is fully equipped with anything you could need, extremely organized and Cora pays attention to detail. There are written explanations to answer any questions that might arise.
There is a great energy in Kolea 15L and we find it very relaxing.
We would not hesitate to recommend this condo.
Very well kept
If you are looking for an immaculate condo in a perfect location, look no further. Cora understands what renters are looking for in a premier Hawaii vacation. The cleanliness of the condo is better than we’ve ever seen…and my family travels a lot. Her communication was timely and considerate. The Kolea community is in a league of its own with a beach club and pool that’s hard to leave. Arguably the best spa on planet earth looking A Bay.
There may be less expensive units in the Waikoloa area but you get what you pay for.
We just returned from a week-long stay at 15L & agree with the past reviews – this is a special place! We have rented at 4 other complexes within WBR and Kolea is our new favorite. One of the unique features to Kolea is that the “wall” from the living room to the lanai opens completely, making a large indoor/outdoor room - we spent each morning and evening on the lanai.
The condo is situated conveniently close to the King’s Shops & Queen’s Marketplace - from the ground floor of building 15, there is a short cut path to the main Kolea entrance road & from there, it’s a quick walk to shopping & dining. We walked every morning to get the paper and coffee and walked many nights to get dinner. In the later afternoon, it was a quick walk to the beach to watch the sunset, bringing with us the beach chairs from the condo. The condo is also equipped with several boogie boards, beach towels, etc. – everything we needed.
Cora is a gracious host & very organized! She set up a group text between her, our family and her on-island representative once we landed, so any questions we had were quickly answered.
Lastly, there are special touches in this condo that you don’t always see in a rental, touches that make you feel like you are visiting a family member or friend’s home, and not just a rental (full sized shampoo/conditioner & body wash in both showers, foil, Ziploc bags & saran wrap, chopsticks, chip clips in the kitchen, etc etc). These are little things, but things that make you feel welcomed and more at “home”.
The first night we were there, my husband was already on Cora’s calendar checking when we can return. We hope it’s soon. We recommend 15L!
My husband and I enjoyed our stay at this well appointed condo while attending a conference nearby. The unit was very clean and comfortable. Walking distance to the Hilton as well as the King/Queen shopping. Beach and pool were also wonderful. Check in process was very smooth however I also got locked out the final morning. This was rectified within 20 minutes. Would stay again if in the area.
Upscale unit, close to the pool & beach. Communication with Cora was quick and efficient. The unit was better than the pictures. Kitchen was well equipped incl. Oil, Vinegar, various spices, coffee, tea, even aluminum foil, and zip lock bags, wine cooler in the freezer etc etc. Pool area was super close to the unit and had comfortable cushions on lounge chairs. We had the whirlpool to ourselves for sundown - amazing!!! Amazing ALL around! Highly recommend!
We had a great stay at unit 15L. It was modern, clean and everything promised on VRBO listing (and more). Very nice lanai with sofas. Large well stocked kitchen. Unit has ceiling fans in bedrooms which is a nice touch. Only glitch was a code based front door lock that seemed to stop working last morning before official checkout so be careful not to get locked out.
Very walkable community with sidewalks, paths and bike lanes. The pool area is very relaxing with nice hot tub, plenty of chairs and easy beach access. (I recommend walking over to the beach area past the rental shack to avoid rocks in water.)
Unit is close enough to walk over to Kings/Queens markets to enjoy restaurants or a morning beverage. I recommend stopping at Costco on your drive up from airport if you are a family and plan to eat meals in the condo.
This condo has everything you need for a wonderful Hawaii vacation. Our family really enjoyed all the beach items they have as we spend a lot of time at the beach. We also love the location as you can easily walk to A'bay, shops and restaurants. Cora was a great host, can't recommend this condo enough.
We had an excellent time here for our honeymoon, and would recommend it to anyone! The condo was clean and beautiful, the beach was close by, restaurants and shops are walking distance. Great place to stay!
We just returned from a wonderful stay at Cora and Roger’s Waikaloa Village / Kolea condo. This place was even better than in the pictures, and perfect in every way. Cora is a great host! From the time we booked until after our stay, she was communicative, informative, and extremely organized.
The condo itself was absolutely immaculate, probably one of the cleanest I’ve seen (and I’m really picky!). The kitchen had every appliance you can imagine, along with several basic supplies (even coffee). The beds were comfortable and had quality bedding. The two full bathrooms had separate showers and tubs, were nice and clean, and had fluffy towels and bath products. There is also an excellent selection of beach items available for guest use, including chairs, towels, umbrellas, boogie boards, sand toys, coolers, snorkel gear, and more. These made our beach trips simple and enjoyable!
As a family of four, there was plenty of room for us to spread out. We enjoyed our morning coffees and dinners on the lovely lanai. After our long and busy days, it was nice to relax and watch movies on one of the three TVs.
We are grateful for the opportunity to have stayed in this beautiful vacation home. The “welcome treats” were a lovely surprise and were much appreciated by us all.
Thank you, Cora and Roger, for a wonderful week in paradise!
We have extensive travel experience as well as experience staying in vacation units all
Over the world. I can say without hesitation that this was the most well equipped unit we have have ever stayed in. Every whim or need was planned for and thought of. We didn’t need a thing as it was all in the unit. Everything had a place and explanations were easily found. I would absolutely stay here again. The pool and beach access was fantastic. The location overall was wonderful. It was a dream. I even forgot my specialized neck pillow there and Cora (the owner) offered to mail it back to me. Everything was perfect. This is a high end luxury experience. I will probably never be able to book this place again after this review😂🌸🌈🌺
Was one of the best condos we’ve ever stayed at and fully equipped with more than you need. The fruit, water, and chocolate were a very pleasant surprise. We were checked in on a couple of times during our stay to make sure we were satisfied and had all we need. This is one place where a swimsuit is all you need, they have everything else. Wonderful would go back again.
