Loved this property! Great location and amenities! Would 100% stay again when in Kona.
The balcony provided a view of the ocean as we sipped our morning coffee and access to the pool and ocean are a very easy walk. While we did not have young children with us, we found boogie boards, sand buckets, fins, and a mask in the closet, so we can see how this condo would be ideal for a family, too. Everything was clean and, when we walked in, music was playing on the TV while the AC was running. Very nice touches! Grocery and other shopping is close by, but it is at resort pricing, so if you have a car, the drive to Waikoloa Village, 15 minutes inland, to the local KTA market is worth it. We would stay here again!
Loved the condo and the complex it was in. The accommodations were perfect for our family of 4 (2 adults and 2 kids). The location was perfect - walking distance to shops and restaurants and easy to get around to other areas of the island.
While the condo and complex were great we had a couple issues. The worst being that they shampooed the carpeting right before we got there and it was still terribly wet when we arrived, making the whole place smell like a wet dog. Unfortunately, there was no prior notice of this, nor did the management company acknowledge or help to deal with it and it smelled that way for days. The gas grill was also out of propane when we arrived and while they did replace the tank after we reached out, they never notified us that it was happening or when it would happen, so we had to follow up multiple times.
We would definitely stay here again but we were disappointed with the lack of communication by Grand Welcome.
Love Kolea .. but
2 dresser drawers fell out hit foot (no injury) when opened ... in master', 3rd was stuck ( took drawers out and left in closet). Evident this was not recently broken furniture but was never repaired, the runners were čompletely worn. Icemaker did make ice but broken. Evident it was broken when we got there and not repaired. And towels and sheets .. we wash? What if residents prior to us only used rinse cycle? Will stay at Kolea again, but will not book thru same company.

Great location. Convenient access to beach. Close to restaurants and shops. The unit is located on the 3rd floor but there is an elevator. It is very clean and spacious. It had a nice terrace with a view where we ate breakfast everyday. Beds were comfy. Kitchen had most of the things we needed. Overall, a great place to stay for a family with kids.
Really nice property in a great location. We will definitely be returning.
We love the layout of the condo, the location, and the amenities provided. There's accessibility to the beach and a pool within a block's walking distance. It's extremely peaceful and clean. The grounds are kept immaculately groomed. Other guests are respectful.
Couldn't get a much better location and amenities. Accommodations and location are wonderful just hanging out at the beach and relaxing.
We had five people and found this to be an excellent place to stay. The walk to the pool area (also excellent) is about a block and the beach is about a block beyond that. The condo is large and comfortable. Our fifth person had the couch hide-a-bed; no complaints, but the couch itself looked comfier. Be aware of 3 things: 1) It’s hard to find the right building if you arrive in the dark. There’s good signage around, but it’s not lit well at night. 2) The covered parking for this unit runs parallel to the building. There’s another area that runs kind of perpendicular to the building, but that’s for building 15, not 14. 3) Some rentals have a lot of staples (oil, salt, etc.) in the kitchen, but this one did not when we were there.
Overall, this was an amazing and convenient place to stay that provided us with a week of luxury.
Clean, well furnished. We appreciated the beach chairs and umbrella. Easy place to take a weeks vacation. We’ll definitely be back.
We love staying in Kolea! It is a beautiful property! Unit 14F is actually very well appointed: everything we needed in kitchen, all appliances provided (nice blender & coffee maker) even little items like: seran wrap, foil, baggies, some spices and coffee filters. However when I asked Property Manager (prior to departure) what beach items the condo had available for our use (beach chairs, beach towels, umbrella, cooler etc) they replied to my email, “no, owner does not provide anything other than bath towels and a basic welcome kit of toilet paper, soap. If you require more you will need to bring your own.” This was quite disappointing as we’d never stayed in a Kolea condo that did not have such items full stocked and available for our use. So I rented items in advance and checked a bag with beach towels. . However, upon arrival ALL of those items were found right there in the condo closet/cupboard: 2 beach chairs, 1 umbrella, 2 boogie boards and 6 beach towels.So for those renting 14F, the owner HAS INDEED gone out of their way to make your stay comfortable both while in the condo and while enjoying the beautiful beaches. I recommend Property Manager make a quick visit to ALL their properties so they may provide accurate information to renters. We would definitely renter this unit again.
Enjoyed our stay and staff was super responsive. Not everything is checked to be working 100% but the things we contacted them about we're fixed quickly.
