Property was beautiful. Great location. Had a slight problem with the linens. Two of the beds were not made and a pile of bed linens were on the floor by the laundry room waiting to be washed. We contacted the owner and he was very responsive and contacted the cleaners. We dropped off our luggage and left to get groceries. When we returned everything was in order. We enjoyed our stay!!
Bob ( owner) was very responsive and the property was in great condition. The unit has every cooking utensil you need and has plenty of beach equipment. Kolea is in a great location and a short walk to both the Hilton & Marriot properties and also the local King & Queens market. We would definitely stay here again.
What a great way to experience our first trip to the big island! This condo is in the perfect location for a family of all ages. We walked to the grocery store and lots of shopping and restaurants at King’s and Queens. The unit is right across the street from the pool and beach that has rentals for snorkeling, paddle boarding and kayak’s. It’s on the dry side of the island which we all liked. The owner was always immediately responsive with any questions. The unit itself was very clean and perfect for our family of five. I would absolutely stay there again!
Great place, great host. Close to beach and markets and shopping. The pool is great. We will stay here again, highly recommended.
Family had a great time at the condo. Robert was always quick to respond and the condo was in great condition. We hope to be back soon. Thank you.
Great location. Would stay again
really enjoyed our time there. Place was clean and well stocked with everything we needed for a great vacation. will recommend and probably stay again.
Great location, great property
We have been to the Big Island almost 20 times and it never disappoints! This was our first time at Kolea and we really enjoyed it. The complex is very nice and the pool/spa overlooking A-Bay is very special, and the short walk to A-Bay and the Kings and Queens shops is great. Very central to everything. The condo was also really nice - very comfortable for our family of 4 plus in-laws (6 total). There is a large lanai with a table and chairs for 6, with grill, etc. Communication with the owner Robert was also wonderful, and we even borrowed his golf clubs and took advantage of his membership at the golf club to get big golf discounts. We will definitely be back!
This property was very clean, great location to A-Bay. The property itself was very spacious. Has variety of amenities for the beach. Centrally located. Owner was easy to reach. Great place we will definitely book this place again!
Robert was a great host. Thank you!
Beautiful unit, wonderful location. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
Property is holding up very nice being 17-20 years old. My company did all the woodwork and doors on this project, and it still is just beautiful and well maintained.
Pool is great and the beach is just a short walk.
Marriott next door is great for happy hour.
Hilton to the north was a big disappointment,
Overall a must for a bucket list
We had a great stay! Kolea has the perfect location in Waikoloa and Robert was an excellent host.
The property and grounds are gorgeous. Short walk to the beach. The Hilton offers a sunset sail that takes off from this beach so you can drink and no one has to drive!
This was a beautiful place. Gourmet kitchen, cozy furniture, close to good snorkeling and walking distance to entertainment and shopping/dining. The interaction with the owner was excellent. Clear instructions and communicative. The closet with beach accoutrements was terrific! Nice snorkeling equipment, boogie boards, floaties- very convenient to have right there. Thank you!

Nice condo for a family getaway in Puoko.
This rental is luxurious and exceedingly clean. The floorplan is exquisite with tons of light and airflow. Did I mention how clean it is? Everything is in perfect working order and the host is fantastic and responsive. The build and materials are top notch, wonderful smooth operating doors and cabinets and windows… Luxurious bathrooms and so many wonderful lighting options. The swim and beach club is super mellow and easy to use with the keycard. Towels supplied at the club are thick and luxurious. Staff at the club is wonderful. Location is excellent with shopping at restaurants in walking distance, yet no feeling of hustle bustle at the residences, just perfect quiet sweet Hawaiian air. The sand bottom keiki pool it’s fantastic and we all had an amazing time. Oh and the beach is so incredibly sweet, warm water gently lapping tiny little waves, perfect for any level of swimmer. We are already planning our return!
My family and I enjoyed a brief stay in this property at the end of a multi-island trip to Hawaii. We were very happy with the proximity to Kona airport. Well appointed condo with a wonderful outside living area. Walking distance to beach and well appointed with beach equipment. The assigned parking spot was a nice touch, no looking for an empty spot. THe resort is very relaxing and quiet
The condo is beautiful, spacious and clean! The location is ideal. Very close to the beach, pool and nearby shopping. Loved being on the ground floor and using the lanai and grassy lawn for playtime with the kids.
The condo had everything we needed and more!
Property was well represented. Fit our needs perfectly.
The Condo was beautiful and super close to the beach.
Easy access, immaculately clean, professional and timely correspondence from the team ~ Bravo 👏
Our family had a wonderful time here. The property met all our needs while on the island.
Had an awesome time. Love the location! Family friendly and nice that we all had our space. We would stay here again for sure
When we first arrived at this property, we were excited, to say the least. It looked better than the photos on VRBO, which were kind of dark. In person we were pleasantly surprised. For the first few days, we enjoyed the pool, hot tub and beach access the resort comes with. However, after the first few days on a 10 night stay, we were surprised to find that the pool area/beach access had been closed for repairs. For the remaining 6 days of our stay. Our host gave us zero notice, no discount, although he did get us in to the Hilton pool to enjoy: this was lovely, but not what we wanted out of our stay. We picked this place because of the accessibility to the beach and the pool/hot tub for the mornings and evenings. We wanted a place to come to in the evenings to enjoy and unwind from a day of touring the island. Normally, this would have been a good option, but to have this closure happen with no notice, or discount offer was, and still remains, ludicrous. The owner has stopped responding to my texts, even though he asked what it would take to make it right. We simply asked for the same discount other people around us in the complex were offered by the owners of their units. Plus, they were given at least a few days heads up. At this point the thing that makes us most angry is that we weren’t given the opportunity to make the decision to move to get the things we wanted on our trip. There were a few other little things that we would have overlooked (for example, the tub in the 2nd bathroom dripped constantly, and was super loud in the middle of the night. A handyman was supposedly sent to fix it, but we could find nothing changed when we came home that day. We communicated such to the owner, but no response as to what happened there). We assume we were just unlucky renters, but it still doesn’t sit well with our family as this was such a huge expense and part of the trip. I gave the owner several opportunities to respond in the last week to work this out, but it appears he thinks it isn’t worth his time. And no, a free night on some future unplanned visit doesn’t really help.
I don’t like writing negative reviews, but he leaves us no other choice here.
So if you want to roll the dice and hope you won’t have any issues and that the pool will be open or if you don’t care that the owner doesn’t care enough to make sure you’re happy at this price, go for it.
A short stay in a lovely resort location. Well appointed and clean condo. Comfortable beds. The beach and pool areas are lovely. A short walk to the Queens and Kings restaurants and shops as well.
Our ohana enjoyed this condo. Convenient check in process. Condo has all amenities you can think of. Also appreciated the designated covered parking stall which is located right across the unit.
The place is great for a family looking for a very nice place. Very luxurious - it shows that the place is only a couple years old, perfectly clean and very well maintained. All the extra things you want - coolers for bring drinks to the pool or golfing, nice blender for making pina coladas, packnplay, nice highchair, lots of DVDs to watch and games to play, etc.
Pool is great for kids and families - nice walk in sandy kids pool where our girls played in the sand. Lots of lounges and trees for shade. Very nice people working at the pool who handed out sand toys for our girls to play with.
Owner was very nice and accomodating. Highly recommended.
