We have been staying on this property for many years and multiple times in this unit. It's a great location and Wendee is super helpful.

This unit is a “Diamond in the rough”… extremely beautiful set up, clean & a great panoramic view from the lanai!… located near some wonderful shops and shopping market with groceries which was so convenient, all walking distance… I would HIGHLY recommend, and Wendee the property manager was very helpful when needed… I have already booked for next year with this unit!!! (I am disabled, and with the elevator available to the 3rd floor of this wonderful property, it is very user friendly for those with a handicap, including a nice sitting bench built in master shower)

Beautiful decorated, comfortable, lots of room, loved pool and short walkway to beach. Lush landscaping!

This was a great spot for our family, we had so much to do within walking distance (thanks so much to the property for having a wagon to use to get to the beach), and we loved the toddler pool and big pool at the property. Lots of space, laundry, and a great kitchen with all the basics for cooking some fish or steak on the grill.

Kolea is perfectly located in the Waikoloa area, close to the beach, shopping and dining (all within easy walking distance). We've stayed in several units in Kolea and this particular unit was the best stocked, by far. Every kitchen amenity one would need, beach equipment (beach towels, chairs, umbrella, boogie boards, sand toys) and the beds are comfortable. The property manager, Wendee, was super responsive and addressed questions quickly and thoroughly. Looking forward to a return stay!

Condo was just as advertised. Everything was clean and in good working order. Weather in this area of the island can't be beat. Pool area is beautiful and pool is now heated where as few years ago they didn't heat unless it dropped below 78 degrees. Now only issue with pool is the best loungers are full by 8:00 in the morning. There was always loungers in the back area open at least and ocean is a short walk away. Overall I would definitely stay in this condo again and Kolea is the best condo complex on the island.

We had a great experience at Kolea 15J. The property is great place to relax and enjoy the big Island. I would highly recommend.

We stayed in Unit J15 for five nights with our two daughters for our elopement. It was beautiful, clean, stocked with any amenity you would need and provided us a beautiful place to come back to as newlyweds. The separation of space and outside lanai was lovely. Although Waikoloa is the windy side of the island, we weren’t too affected by it. Many things to do and see nearby. Mahalo, Wendee, for your hospitality with our fruit basket and providing our ohana an amazing stay. We will be back!

We absolutely loved our stay at this incredible property. The kitchen has everything needed and there was more than enough room for our family of four (including two kids, 13 and 9). We especially appreciated the beach gear that is conveniently located in the covered parking closet -- so perfect! The grounds of the property are also beautifully maintained and we loved it's walking distance to the local shops and restaurants. Would definitely stay here again and can't wait to come back!

The property was amazing. The location was perfect, walking distance to A-Bay was a delight. Our contact Wendee was so helpful in so many ways. From booking to on property. She responded immediately when my son stepped on a sea urchin, she was patient with us figuring out the AC system. The pictures of unit were accurately beautiful but the actual unit was better. The garage closet was stocked with beach gear, yes an upgrade of two of the four chairs would be great but it didn’t hinder our walks to the beach at all. The kitchen was well stocked with everything you would need to prepare meals and the cupboards had some extras hat cam in handy like coffee filters. Our family of 4 had an amazing stay and can’t recommend this unit enough. It really was a perfect stay. Thank you Wendee!

Exquisite apartment with top of the range appliances. Beautiful decorations. Good internet. Appreciated the welcome fruit basket. The gardens in the complex are beautifully landscaped and well maintained. Pool area is amazing. Easy access to the beach. Sunsets views from the beach are awesome. Wendee provided all required information upfront and there was no need to meet her. Location to shops and site seeing is ideal. We thoroughly enjoyed our 2 week stay and will surely be back in the future.

We spent 6 nights enjoying this beautiful condo within the Kolea gated complex. The condo is well appointed, beautifully furnished and located a complex with a wonderful pool area. We highly recommend staying at this property.

Having never been to the Big Island, we decided to join friends who’ve been many times. Our friends were staying at the Marriott but with our family of 4, one room at the Marriott wouldn’t work for our small kids who sleep at 8p and the adults who want to spend more time awake after 8. We also love making breakfast and enjoy a little more room to stretch out. This unit was everything we wanted and more. Being exclusively VRBO’ers, we know not all hosts have the same level or clean or preparedness as we hope but this place is cleaner than my house! Amenities, finishes, and overall design is superior to many places we’ve stayed at. Items left for guest use that I’m assuming have been left over time was so helpful, including spices, rice, other basic pantry items, soaps, bandaids, aloe, sunblock, and everything in between. Absolutely will stay here again.

My husband and I along with another couple just finished a 6 night stay at Kolea 15J. The condo was just as beautiful as advertised. The balcony view is fabulous, with a bit of a water view and also a view of the mountains. The furnishings were very upscale and tasteful and the condo had everything we needed for our vacation. It was an easy walk to the beautiful pool and fitness area. We also took advantage of the quick walk to A-Bay Beach and Lava Lava Restaurant. We loved that there were 4 beach chairs, 2 umbrellas, boogie boards, and a large cooler. We loaded up the rental SUV and explored the incredible nearby beaches. The manager, Wendee, was always prompt in getting to back to us when there was a question. We did have a couple of issues...there was a ceiling leak over the guest room toilet one evening. I called Wendee and left a message at 5:00pm. It was taken care of while we were out at dinner. The outdoor grill on the patio was out of propane gas so when we went to grill our fresh fish we found we couldn't use the grill. The beach chairs need to be replaced as a couple of them have broken straps. Other than those minor issues everything was great and I would definitely recommend this condo and the Kolea condo development. It is beautifully designed and landscaped and was a pleasure to walk and drive around the complex. We hope to be back someday!

The condo is lovely. Plenty of amenities, great variety of water accessories in the carport storage. Easy to get in and out of, either by stairway or elevator. All the appliances worked well and were in good order, plenty of linens, good matteresses. The fruit basket was a wonderful touch that we enjoyed throughout our stay. My only reason for 4 stars is that the description states an ocean view, but there isn't ocean from the lanai, only the fish ponds and mountain. The view is beautiful, just not an ocean view. We thoroughly enjoyed the open air lanai and fresh ocean breezes. The close proximity to the Queens and Kings market place is so nice. We would gladly stay here again.

Really nice condominium. We have stayed in the same development in another unit and this one was definitely nicer. Beautiful view, excellent beach, pool and local restaurant/shopping access. A great place for a lazy vacation or an excellent home base for island adventures. Would definitely stay again.

Our family has stayed at Kolea Kai for several years now. This is the first trip that we've stayed at this particular condo. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The condo had everything we needed in the kitchen as well as for outdoor activities. The unit was extremely clean and the lanai had a dining table as well as chaise lounge for relaxing. The carport closet has beach chairs, body boards, sand toys and a sun umbrella. Pretty much everything you would need for the beach. Our family looks forward to staying here on our next visit. Mahalo!

This condo provides a nice stay for four people in Kolea. The pictures accurately reflect the property. Lots of (warn) beach chairs and other equipment, which was welcome. The condo was cleaned but not well — bathroom rugs, for instance, were vacuumed instead of washed, and the living room rug also had crumbs. There were stains on the comforter. Bedroom rugs should be replaced and with something larger. The picture of the view is not accurate. This unit looks mostly onto the building in front of it and to the hotel next door. But our biggest issue with Kolea is the pool. It is incredibly small and there is little shade. The complex was quite full when we were there and the small pool area could not accommodate. There is also no longer pool towel service, which was a disappointment. Overall Kolea is a good value for the price, but there needs to be another pool.

My family and I enjoyed this location while vacationing in Hawaii. The unit was clean, had kitchen utensil needed for cooking and the washer and dryer were a plus. The view from the lanai was gorgeous! We could walk everywhere; to the beach, shops, pool, other hotels and restaurants, coffee shop, little grocery store, etc. we would stay here again! It would be nice to have a house manual for how to work a few things in the unit. Wendee was quick with her communication though and replied to all my questions timely.

The condo was well furnished and maintained including everything you would need for a day at the beach. The Kolea complex has direct access to A-Bay and is located near shopping and restaurants. This is the third time we have stayed at Kolea and have never been disappointed. I would highly recommend the property.

Wonderful experience. Ideal location, very short walk to pool and beach. First class furnishings, appliances and supplies. Would suggest some sort kind of manual or introduction guide-took us a little time to figure out the TV and lighting system-but this is a minor quibble. Would definitely rent again!

Upscale, loved all the little touches with beach accessories, condiments, beautiful kitchen, washer drier super efficient, water pressure and temps and comfortable beds. Towels even nice and fluffy. We loved the view from super nice balcony with stainless steel bbq and sink. Great parking and loved location. Will come back. Thank you!!

This is an absolutely grand condo with spacious bedrooms and bathrooms, a large beautiful kitchen that has upscale appliances big and small, everything you need in a kitchen! Lanai is large with views of mountains and peek-a-boo of A-Bay. It is a nice easy walk to both Kings and Queens shopping areas, with sidewalks and other areas you may want to stroll to. Easy in/out if driving a car. Everything about this property is exactly as described and shown in pics. I searched long and hard through so many properties and I found the most perfect one possible! Communication of information is thorough and if needed, response was quick. I look forward to returning to only this property for future visits. Thank you Wendee for offering this perfect-in-every-way property!

Beautiful and well appointed. Right near beach access and has a nice pool and jacuzzi. Condo was spacious and had everything that you would ever need! We made quite a few trips to Waimea, and that area, so the condo location was perfect for us. Would definitely recommend and will return again!

This is a great property in a great location. The condo is beautifully decorated and had everything we needed - including beach chairs and an umbrella. The beach and pool are just a short walk away, as are shops and restaurants. Would love to return. Thank you!

This is our second year staying in the Kolea condo's and our first at this property. The condo is beautifully maintained and appointed, was clean and has a great view. One thing you should know is they Vrbo listing says there is a king bed in the guest room, but it only had two twin's. That was a big issue and probably would have altered our decision had we known this up front. If it wasn't for that, I would have given 15J all 5 stars. Hopefully they will update the Vrbo listing with the correct information. The other thing to know is there is a guest storage facility that has all sorts of fun stuff in it. We discovered this about half way through the trip. There is a well marked key on the key ring, but we just never went out there for a look.

This property is exactly as advertised -- extremely tastefully and thoughtfully decorated with high-end touches and facilities. It was clean, spacious and everything is in excellent condition. It is also well-equipped for cooking and/or grilling and the location is extremely convenient. Just a fabulous property.
