Kolea Villas Reviews


I have been a regular visitor to Hawaii since 1988 but my sisters have not ever been here. The condo was perfect for them. Beautiful home with easy walk to the beach. It was the perfect place to introduce them to Hawaii

This place was perfect for our family of 5: Husband and I, twin 6 yr olds + my mom. So comfortable and spacious, with updated amenities. Kitchen had everything we needed and more. Proximity to the pool with a great view of the sunset by the beach. Husband and I could do our morning workout swims in the bay easily. Pool was nice (though a tad bit warm), having pool towels there was a bonus. The condo itself provided enough beach and bath towels. Huge washing machine which helped for our family. Definitely would recommend this to other families who need all the comforts of a holiday stay in Hawaii!

Cora’s place was roomy, easy to access and within close walking distance to the pool and the beach. We prefer to cook and the kitchen and provided cookware made it super easy. We’d definitely stay again!

If you want to be close to a beach yet have a stunning place to hang out poolside, this is the place for.you. comfortable beds and super clean. The only thing I can fault this unit for is on hot days the air conditioner doesn't quite keep cool enough in the spare bedroom for sleeping, there is a fan which helps. We never opened the lanai doors for that reason. We rented a golf cart and really enjoyed cruizin' all over in it.

Stayed here on a whim as I had some travel plans change lar minute. I was impressed with the cleanliness and condition of the condo. We used the beach and pool daily. Close to walk to shops with many options. We really enjoyed our stay!

We had a very nice stay at this unit. I was worried about previous reviews mentioning questionable cleanliness but that certainly wasn’t the case during our stay. The renting management company assured me that the carpets, etc were thoroughly cleaned and indeed they were. I was really impressed with how soft the carpet was as a matter of fact. Beds were comfortable, unit was spacious, kitchen had everything you need, loved the beach gear and location was great. Happy we picked this place for our stay!

We stayed in 6D for 4 nights. The house was very nice and spacious for 2 couples. The open concept of the kitchen/living room and lanai were very nice. Even though we were on the ground level, we were able to see the water since there was an empty lot across the street. We happened to be there during an Ironman Competition (women only). We were warned on the first day that the road would be closed for the day but it was a great excuse to hang out and snorkel at the beautiful bay. It was awesome to go up to road and see these incredible women go past us on their bikes. We were very happy with our stay and hope to be able to visit again soon.

Beautiful beach side property with perfect pool for kids. Beach is a 2 minute walk from the pool where we saw 2-3 sea turtles every day swimming off the beach. Easy walk to shopping and restaurants in the kings and Queens market place.

This was our 6th time staying in the Kolea Landing condos and in this bock of units. 2F was great and a perfect place to bring new friends to the island. We had some minor issues with the AC but the property manager was on it fast and took care of the issue. Sitting out on the lanai and watching the sun come up is our favorite thing about this floorplan and the walks around A-Bay and the fish ponds is a daily treat.

Property is Amazing , very clean , amenities great , pool area fantastic and proximity to all in waikoloa is as good as it gets. We were able to book there due to off season and price was down to many other properties we have stayed over many years . My wife worked at the Hayatt Waikoloa when it opened in 1989 and the plants and trees weren’t grown up yet . Great place . Hope we can stay next year Mahalo

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.

October 2023

We loved the location of this condo. It was nice to have access to coolers, beach wagon, boogie boards, beach towels and beach chairs since we were traveling as a family. The lanai was really nice and we cooked many meals while staying at this property. There was a used diaper in one of the laundry bins when we arrived, therefore gave it 4 stars for cleanliness, otherwise it was very clean. The dryer did have some difficulty operating due to an error message, but we were able to get it working. Love being able to do laundry while away so that arrival at home is easy, without loads of work to do. The front bedroom doesn’t get as cool using the AC as the back master bedroom, definitely recommend the use of a fan.

The overall Kolea property is beautiful and the location is primo! Wonderful outdoor kitchen on the balcony, and the quietness. No ice maker in the fridge but there is an ice machine on property at the pool. Customer service proved to be a detractor for this particular property, building 14, unit F when we reported the filthy stained master bedroom carpeting, dust build up on the vents and a toilet maintenance issue. None of these issues were addressed after we reported these items to customer service.

If it hadn't been booked, we would have extended our stay!The kitchen has everything you need. We made breakfast here daily and grilled steaks on the lanai for dinner. The beds were very comfortable as well.We loved having the fitness area next to the pool for daily workouts, and the beach down the path was breathtaking. We’ve been all over Hawaii, and this is hands down one of our favorite beaches on any island.We dined at Ulu Ocean Grill at the Four Seasons, where the fresh seafood and views were to die for. Another standout was Binchotan at the Fairmont Orchid.The farmer's market in Waimea is a foodie paradise! Everything from the Mangos to the birria tacos had us wishing we could go every day. For fellow nature lovers, a hike through the rainforest at Kalopa State Park is an absolute must. We’ll be doing more hikes on our next trip!We are already planning our next trip back. Mahalo!

The unit is filthy. The owners or property management are not doing their job of which we paid as part of our stay. Carpeting filthy, lani tile sticky in areas. Dining room chairs filthy. Wondered why bathroom smelled, toilet bowl brush had poop and toilet paper stuck to brush and the liquid in the brush holder was disgusting. AC in main bedroom not working well. Probably clogged vents restricting air flow. The ceiling in the living room near the vent is black with dust. Went to Resortica Hawaii office near complex. When I told them I was staying in unit 16b they asked how was everything. I told them it was filthy. Their response “. Oh thank you for that feedback we need to hear those things. I will let our manager know.” No one called or contacted us, zip, nothing. Walls dirty and need painting. This is not just bad housekeeping. This has been going on for some time for the place to look like this. Yet they charge all these fees and you pay top dollar and don’t get what you pay for. My advice don’t rent this unit. I’ll be requesting reimbursement.

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.

Location of condo is good and short walk to pool and beach. Beach has lounge chairs available for use for free. Pool and jacuzzi are nice. Beds, sheets and pillows are very comfortable. Plenty of towels. Dishwasher was not working but owner warned us in advance and provided disposable dishes and made other accommodations for us like letting us check in early. Kitchen is adequately stocked. Knives are adequate but vegetable peeler is useless. BBQ works great and was clean. Shower knobs a little hard to figure out but shower was good. Wifi great. Two beach chairs provided were nice touch. Overall we’d come back and would have liked to stay longer.

We love staying here when we visit The Big Island. Everything was good in unit. Lots of great beach stuff Including wagon and cooler. Shower in master did not work properly and was hard to get hot water. That is why I gave some four stars. Otherwise Kolea is a 5 star community

Absolutely loved our stay. The home is top floor, beautiful inside and out, close to great shops, beaches. Facilities are top of the line. Spent time at the pool, the beach, walking. Loved the grill on the deck, and listening to birds on the deck in the mornings. AC and ceiling fans worked beautifully. Beds were comfortable too.

We love Kolea, and this comfy unit is located conveniently near the pool. Perfect size for family of four including two teens.

Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was very happy with the location. I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: The condo exceeded our expectations. It was well-equipped with good beach chairs and beach bags to carry our stuff. The bed had a good, comfortable mattress and foam pillows. The kitchen had good quality, sharp knives and plenty of glassware. There was a nice pool with easy beach access to an uncrowded beach. We especially appreciated the reserved, covered parking space. Our only quibble is really more with the development as a whole. There are no street lights and the lava rock pillars that have the building label signs have no lights. So if you will be arriving at night, bring a flashlight as you will need it to identify your building. Likewise, the pillar that holds the keypad to the car entry gate is not lighted. The keypad will light when you touch the first button, but you will need a flashlight to see it initially.I can definitely recommend this unit and would stay here again.

This rental was perfect for our family vacation. Its proximity to the beach and shopping areas made it incredibly convenient. The cleanliness of the space was impressive, and the central air conditioner kept us cool during our stay. The reclined sofa in the living room was a great touch, providing a comfortable space for relaxation. I highly recommend this place for families looking for a fantastic vacation spot.

Very disappointing. The “Lazy River” was not what one would expect…no tubes or currents. The main kid friendly pool was full of adults spilling their drinks into water. There was very little shade and it was hot! Unless you were prepared to pay $150 for a 2 seated shaded lounger. Never again!

The Kolea condo development was excellent with great access to the beach and an awesome pool area. Shawn was quick to communicate and very helpful. Unfortunately, the condo itself was lacking in several ways. The furniture was older and more worn out than we had anticipated. The whole unit needed some extra cleaning and TLC.

Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: This property was even more beautiful in person. The layout was perfect for 4 adults and one child. We loved that each room had a king sized bed and more than enough space to move around and that the rooms were far apart from each other. The rental had all the items we needed from cutlery, to appliances, and extra bedding and toiletries. We loved the beach club - the pools were amazing! The direct beach access was a definite plus. The view from the lanai was beautiful - a very calming place to drink coffee/tea in the early morning hours. All in all, an amazing place to stay. Can't wait to come back again.The only negative was that the house was not ready at the check-in time. The cleaning staff needed almost a full hour to finish cleaning but we made the most of that time hanging out at the beach club. The cleaning crew did a wonderful job though. The house was immaculate!

Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: First visit to the Big Island. Our little spot in Waikoloa was the perfect location between Mauna Kea and Kona. It is also a nice jump off point for trips to Hilo or Volcanos NP. It is a bit of a drive to the park but worth it tosee the youngest, most active volcano. The Lava Tube was pretty cool as well. The unit was well appointed with most things you will need. The spices could use a refresh and enhancement We only made a couple of meals, so it was bearable. The pool was close and very nice. The on-site staff at the pool was very nice and kept the place tidy. If we were to go back to the big island, we would certainly stay here again.

We had a nice stay at this property, which was conveniently located in the Kolea buildings in Waikoloa. It was spacious, well-furnished and nicely equipped, including a closet with beach gear for all ages. The lockbox check in process was easy. It's a pretty large condo complex and our unit was similar to the one that our friends rented nearby; they have the feel of timeshare units designed for all of the comforts of home. The beach was a fairly calm bay that would be perfect for smaller kids. Primary beach access is through the Kolea pool, and we found ourselves using the pool as much as at the beach. The location was good in it was a reasonable walk to nearby shops (largely upscale clothing and tourist fare). If you cook a lot we'd recommend skipping the nearby grocery in favor of the 10-minute drive to Foodland Farms in Waimea.

The condo is very clean and well maintained, with lots of space for a family. The Kolea swimming pool and hot-tub are excellent; 'Anaeho'omalu Beach, which has amazing sunsets, is just a short three minute walk from the pool area. The Hilton Pool Pass was an added bonus, and we enjoyed their pool and lagoon. We visited Hapuna Beach one day, and enjoyed using the boogie boards which were available in the garage. Close to shopping and restaurants at King's Marketplace. We would certainly stay here again.

Great location and amenities. Top notch appliances and cooking utensils. The carpet and floors are really dirty and had to lay towels down to sit on the floor. The dinning room chairs are also really dirty. The place needs a good scrubbing. All that said we had a good time and other units we have stayed at are normally clean.

This was such a phenomenal place to make our temporary home base for a Hawaiian adventure! So many thoughtful and convenient touches - from a very well stocked kitchen to a cooler you can take to the beach to many, many beach toys to great recommendations for things to do that were appropriate and enjoyable for our whole fam. The pool is lovely and a quick walk from the condo - and we loved watching the sunset at A Bay! Our hosts were communicative and kind. Cannot say enough nice things and hope to stay again!

After the first step, we all fell in love with the place. The view is great, the rooms are clean & huge, and there are more stuffs than we need. We should have not brought any things as there is everything we need during the stay. Our favirate was probably the BBQ grill on the terrace. Even our mothers in their 70s enjoyed the dinner outside. Wendy was as helpful as many people wrote on their reviews. She even prepared a coffee beans grinder for us. If you are visiting the Big Island for the first time, this location is probably the best as it's close to everything. There are not too many condos from which you can really walk to the beach and shopping centers. We will surely stay here again when we visit Big Island again.

The condo itself has everything you need for trips to the beach including chairs, a wagon, snorkel gear, umbrellas, and towels.

Our family of 4 and our friend family of 5 stayed at this location for 7 days, 6 nights. Location, place and amenities are all great. Our kids enjoyed the pool a lot, which is short walking distance from the condo. Also the view from the balcony, you can see Hawaiian sunset every evening from there. By far the best Vrbo property we stayed in and we travel a lot. Our host Barry was great, He was very responsive. I went to the wrong building ( the one right next to it ) on one day and he came out quickly to the property to help me get into the property quick. Also our flight was delayed by over 4 hour and Barry allowed us to stayed extra hours so that our kids can enjoy the pool one last time. I would come back and stay here again in the Future! Thank you.

We spent 7 nights at this extremely spacious and luxurious condo. The property was exactly as advertised and very clean. It has everything you could possibly need. The lanai is very big and offers lovely views of the ocean (partial) and the beautifully manicured grounds. We loved the outside grill. The Kolea development was very quiet and pleasant. Its Beach Club offers not only an infinity pool but also an infinity hot tub with prime views of the beach, ocean and the adjacent ancient fish ponds (as well as the stars during night). The beach is beautiful and very close/easy to walk down to. Communication with and information by the owners was excellent and check-in/out a breeze. The codes for the gate and the door made coming and going super easy and the carport was huge. We were extremely satisfied and would happily return in a heartbeat.

We’ve rented Kolea condos for four different family vacations and this condo was by far our favorite. Great furnishings, phenomenal kitchen and wonderfully spacious. We’ll definitely rent this condo again. Honestly, even nicer than the pictures!

My wife's first questions to me: "can we stay a month? or could we buy one like this?" The property really is everything it is advertised to be, and we did not initially realize how close it was to the Kolea Beach Club (it's across the street) and that was also the walking path to the beach. Many properties say "minutes to the beach" and are being very optimistic, but Kolea 10B is not kidding. A great complex and a very well equipped unit.

We loved the top floor. It was quiet and away from the noise and other units. This unit was spacious and had more then enough room for our Ohana. We enjoyed all the provided items including beach chairs and accessories for our convenience. We’d definitely return here as it was very relaxing and nice. The only thing I would say is the beds were a little too hard for us. Other than that, all else was just right.

Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was very happy with the location. I was more than satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: Overall we enjoyed our stay at Kolea 11C. The condo was clean and well stocked. The location was great. The view is even better in person. The welcome basket was a nice touch. There were a few maintenance issue that needed fixing when we checked in and that came up during our stay.

Lovely setting, great 2br/2bath condo quietly situated at the end of a cul-de-sac. All as advertised, with thoughtful appointments of the necessities for a traveling family. Not convenient to the Hilton hotel/resort facilities - our only quibble. But includes access to a very nice private beach club with small pool, hot tub, kiddy splash pond and fitness room. Perfect for families with older kids who don’t “need” a Disney-esque water park. Rate this highly for a nice blend of comfort and convenience!

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.

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)

Property was great! Only issue is that although we were told would have starter packs of dish washer soap and washing detergent there weren’t any. Everything else was great

Overall, wonderful stay in Kolea 15E. The place was immaculate and we really appreciated all of the supplies in the garage to facilitate our stay (chairs, umbrellas, sand toys, cooler, etc.). The view was perfect, there was a short walk to a beautiful beach, and our local contact Dani was really responsive when we needed. Thank you!
