Upon arrival, you enter a lush tropical environment surrounded by the elegance of a resort with all the amenities to make your vacation an unforgettable experience. With the splendor of the setting, relaxation at the large infinity pool, play time on the warm sands of Anaehoomalu Beach (A'Bay), shopping in Queens Marketplace, dining at Lava Lava Beach Club, and exploring Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, your stay will leave you filled with warm lifetime memories.

Kolea Villas is in the heart of the Waikoloa Beach Resort in a truly beach front setting on A'Bay. Two open air shopping malls, the Kings Shops and Queens Shops, two championship golf courses, ancient petroglyphs trails, are within walking distance. The Waikoloa Beach Marriott and Hilton Waikoloa Village are on either side of Kolea with A'Bay directly in front.

Our quiet villa is a beautifully decorated, fully air conditioned two-bedroom two-bath unit on the second floor of Building 16 within the Kolea complex. The villa is accessible by stairs or elevator directly from the adjoining covered carport. While located in a quiet secluded area, the villa is a short walk to the pool, beach, or adjoining Marriott Beach Resort complex.

The large tiled lanai is equipped with a stainless-steel barbecue grill, hood and sink, all exquisitely set in teak cabinetry and granite. Outdoor seating for four in a relaxing natural setting provides the perfect venue to grill and enjoy the tropical climate with nearby chilled refreshments in the outdoor fridge.

The master bedroom is furnished with a king bed, television with a built in DVD player, desk and an oversized cushion armchair with ottoman. The paintings in this room tell stories of old Hawai'i, and the wooden drawers of a tall dresser displays beautifully carved out coconut trees. The primary bathroom has a deep soaking tub, double vanities and a walk-in shower all set in golden tones of natural stone.

We absolutely loved our stay at Kolea. The grounds and the property itself were gorgeous and had every amenity you could ask for. The *only* thing we would have liked to see is a bigger fitness center. Other than that, no complaints!! This is our second time booking a Kona coast property via VRBO. I cannot say enough good things about Kona Coast property management. They are super responsive and check in with you periodically to see how things are doing. Love love love!!!

I loved that beach and pool were so close. 2-3 minute walk. Loved that the king and queen shops were a 2-3 minute walk away. Super convenient on so many levels

It was quiet, in a great location for driving around the island, a short walk to a lovely beach. Good restaurants a short walk away but it never felt like we were in a commercial area. I’d go back.

Perfect stay on the big island! Wonderful condo, just as described. Extremely close to the pool, beach, lava lava beach club, and all the shops. I would 100% stay here again. Everything you need in walking distance. Beds were very comfortable

We recently spent a wonderful week in Waikoloa staying in the Kolea 16H condo. With 2 big en-suite bedrooms, it was perfect for me and my wife and her brother. The condo was roomy with a big kitchen, living room and lanai. The clothes dryer was helpful for drying wet bathing suits and towels. We enjoyed the pool and hot tub at the nearby Kolea Beach Club, which provides easy access to Waikoloa beach. Kolea is close to several restaurants and a grocery store, which was handy for stocking up on food and beverages. We also swam with the dolphins at the nearby Hilton. We recommend Kolea for a vacation on the sunny side of the big island of Hawaii.

Everything at this property is exactly as listed with some extras! It was so wonderful to be able to walk to nearby shops and enjoy the amenities at this location! It was a perfect week for all of us.

My family – including two kids ages 12 and 8 – had a wonderful time at this property. It was exactly as described and pictured, and we just loved it. Also, we really appreciated the outstanding & proactive communication from the property manager. They were extremely informative and even helped us book a very cool excursion (night manta ray snorkeling - do NOT miss it!) prior to our arrival on the island. We would absolutely stay here again.

This condo is very spacious and comfortable. We thoroughly enjoyed it. It is 1/4 mile from the beach and the pool area is a little closer than that. Having stayed at a lot of short term rentals (and we used to own one too), we were surprised at how many rules there are and how much information there is. So much, that it conflicts with itself. For example, the rule book says you must wash all towels before you leave, but then you get another set of rules before checking out that says you must NOT wash towels before you leave. It’s just a bit too many rules and that does add a little stress. Other than that, it was lovely.

The condo is everything you could ask for and more. Beautiful layout, clean, comfortable, well stocked, not even a 5 minute walk to the beach club. The beach club is phenomenal. Close to everything in Waikoloa. The condo is about a 40 minute drive to downtown Kona, very easy drive though. It felt like home instantly and was our favorite place out of 3 we stayed at on the island.

My wife and I have stayed at this property before because we really like the amenities of the complex (e.g., pool, spa, lanai) and its walking distance to the King's Shops and Queen's Marketplace, or a quick walk to the bar at the Marriott or Lava Lava club. The Island Gourmet Market at the Queen's Marketplace is a great place to pickup key groceries, beach essentials or a quick bite from the wide selection offered at the deli.

Both the unit and the host were great. Unit was much more spacious than it appears in the pictures. The booking and check-in experiences were fantastic and really inspired confidence ahead of my stay. The only downsides were the slow Internet and the sliding doors, which were a bit of a pinching hazard when opening them all the way. If you're looking to stay in Waikoloa, Kolea is a great spot.

We enjoyed this condo very much. It was big, quiet and the beds were very comfortable. We loved the location of the pool and beach. The only issue we had was when we booked there was a pull out couch listed. The couch was changed to a small sectional which my son did fine sleeping with on. I would definitely stay here again!

We absolutely loved everything about our stay. Check in process was easy we only needed the code for a door and gate and that was sent in an email. We were never bothered. The only down about the whole thing was that there was Hair in the shower and I sent an email addressing that and received an apology immediately. You cannot ask for a better location. We were in walking distance to the beach and the resort area is absolutely nice, beautifully kept and quiet. There are a lot of rules but in my opinion I would rather have lots of rules and stay in a beautiful kept and quiet environment. The shops in the area were a major plus. Island gourmet was a huge bonus for the area for snacks and quick good food. Starbucks in the area was on point every single time and very fast. having private beach access was amazing. We actually did not visit any other beaches.. having a little baby it made it very easy and convenient. The beds were kind of hard but that is just a personal preference you can’t make everyone happy in that department. The whole wiakoloa area is beautiful and we do not regret booking. You get what you pay for. The concierge service did book a reservation for us and I wish that where he booked and himself would’ve reminded us that we could possibly need Dramamine for our helicopter tour. Very expensive ride and the motion sickness was horrible. We received several emails and info and that was never listed. It’s important.. Over all we loved our stay!

Loved the experience in a very well appointed condo. Maintained and very clean with extra amenities like chairs and umbrella for use. Would love to stay here again!

Wonderful unit, excellent communication with the rental agent. The only thing I would change in their description is that there is no ocean view, it a peaceful patio and you can look at a partial view of the mountains. Wonderful pool area you get access to and a short walk to the beach. The owners have beach items to use also, we didn’t take advantage of this but thought it was a nice idea. Would highly recommend to others!

We are considering retirement locations and have always loved the big island. We decided to spend two months to help make the decision. We spent time in Waimea and Kolea. We have stayed in Kolea before, and find it to be the nicest Waikoloa location. Unit 16H was great!! Loved Kolea again. It is a short walk to A-bay, the pool and hot tub are very nice, and it is a great home base for so many big island activities. We love Kolea and will be back.

Luxury awaits in Kolea 16H. This 2nd floor condo is beautifully decorated with Hawaiian carvings on the dining room chairs & several cabinets throughout. With an assigned parking space, we never had to worry about finding a convenient spot. As soon as we stepped inside, we felt at home. The warm & welcoming furnishings are not only perfectly fitted to the tropical feel but are very comfortable. A large screen TV made my husband happy. The dining room table & chairs seated 6 comfortably. It was nice to have a selection of books to enjoy. The kitchen had every possible item you could want or need. From the blender to the toaster to the muffin tin, cookie sheets, baking dishes, some oils & spices, plenty of pots & pans, 2 complete sets of dishes/bowls & plenty of silverware. There’s even a waffle iron & wooden serving containers. The refrigerator had in-door water. The freezer did make ice but the door ice dispenser did not work, which was not an issue for us. The pillow top king bed in the master was extremely comfortable. The closets were large & had more than enough hangers. The desk in the master made for the perfect place to set up our office,. The chest of drawers allowed lots of space for putting our clothes away. Extremely roomy bathrooms with nice white towels, soap & shampoo, plus plenty of hot water were all wonderful. The front closet contained beach items including towels, toys, chairs & mats. The lanai was small but had comfortable seating. We missed having a sliding screen door from the living room to the lanai as we love to have natural air flowing throughout but with the small tropical critters we didn’t feel comfortable leaving the doors open. Having a sweeper, broom & mop allowed me to keep the condo in tip top condition during our stay. The washer & dryer were wonderful to have & were very quiet. Working with Kona Coast Vacations was easy & they provided fast response to any questions I had. The pool area was a 10 minute walk & during our stay, the number of lounge chairs more than doubled. Chairs are not to be moved which is fine except if that is a rule, they need more umbrellas. The location of 16H is close to the Kolea Kai Circle so it is a quick walk to both the Kings Shops & Queens Marketplace. The grounds are extremely well kept. If you are lucky enough to book 16H, you will not be disappointed.

16H was the perfect home base for our Kohala coast adventures. The condo has everything you need to relax and enjoy your vacation. We began and ended each day on the gorgeous lanai, taking in the warm breeze and lovely sights and sounds. The pool and beach (sections of which we had all to ourselves) are steps away and delightful. Island Gourmet market is walking distance and was a great resource. This is the place!

Condo is well appointed for every need...beach gear, cooking gear, and even a great yoga mat. Condo is within short walking distance from pool, work out room, outdoor lanai, hot tub, and great beach access. It's location is very quiet and the property is very well maintained. Kona Coast Vacations thought of everything and the check in process was well thought out and organized. In other words, you can't go wrong with this condo. Wish we could stay longer!

We had the most wonderful stay. There were great basics that we needed for the beach included - beach towels, beach umbrella, boogie boards, some snorkels, a cooler, beach chairs. There were a few beach toys and we left behind more for future little visitors. We had with us my 3 year old and 6 year old who were huge fans of the pool and also the kids sand pool. I loved the view of the beach from the pool too. We would definitely stay here again.

Love this condo, second time staying here. Great location. We lucked out, they were shutting down the pool they day we left for maintenance. Would not have been happy with that because the pool is one of the major reasons we like to stay here.

We felt like we were in a Tommy Bahama ad :) . We have stayed previous years nearby but really enjoy this particular set up. It’s a great place to go for walks along the coast and walks to view sunsets.

We loved our stay at Kolea 612. Luxury stay with plenty of in-condo amenities. The property was fantastic. Great small pool and pool area. Beaches were great for swimming, snorkeling, and sunsets. We highly recommend this. It has everything you want and need in paradise.

Very nice condo in a beautiful complex. Close to the beach, shopping and restaurants -- although we would have liked to had some better/different restaurant options. Loved the big lanai, very spacious condo, well-equipped kitchen, easy check-in. Plus they had beach chairs, umbrella, boogie boards, a cooler, which was a nice added bonus. All made for a really great trip!

We enjoyed our stay at this beautiful property. The condo was very clean and everything we needed was provided. We appreciated the grill on the lanai for evening cook-outs that saved us lots of money. The condo is walking distance to Queen's Market and King's Shops. We would highly recommend this unit and hope to return.
