Great property with pool and amenities nearby. We had a great trip! Good launching spot to explore the island. Very comfortable condo. Only thing we’d have different is the flooring in the unit. Many cracked and broken floor tiles and fortunate no one cut their toes.

We made this reservations shortly before we arrived on island. Kind of had to take what was available. The property cleanliness was less than acceptable. The master bed comfort was terrible. Kitchen appointments and such were minimal. Overall, the unit was somewhat outdated, And in need of some thorough cleaning.

Perfect location close to the pool, tennis courts, shops, and golf course. The house is very comfortable and outfitted with all the amenities needed for a comfortable vacation. We will definitely rent this property again.

The condo was very clean. The complex is very nice and beautiful. The location can be loud outside the front bedroom because the tennis courts are so close and open at 7am. A few mornings our alarm clock was the sound of people yelling and grunting while playing tennis at 7am! The back bedroom is much quieter. The condo is spacious and clean but not one of the updated ones. The sofa needs to be replaced. It’s very uncomfortable and the beds as well. We have stayed in many vacation rentals and this one was very basic and average. Not horrible, but nothing I would go back to.

I loved our rental. It has everything that a family needs for a vacation. Clean, beautiful house, pool, hot tub in a short walk, snorkeling gear. We enjoyed our stay here and recommend it to everyone who wants to rent,

Our first trip to Hawai'i was comfortable and easy staying at the Colony Villas. The nearest pool to the villa is not toddler friendly, but there is another one in the complex that works well. We understood from the VRBO listing that renting a car was necessary to get to and enjoy the beaches. We also made the couple hour drive two days to see waterfalls and Volcano National Park on the other side of the island and were glad we did. The townhome is a good place to hang out between outings - comfortable bedrooms, easy for cooking meals, space to lounge and watch a movie - but not so much for spending a lot of time. The patio is not very large and is in shade most of the time. We were very happy with our vacation rental.

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: Our 16-day stay at Colony Villas 1804 was absolutely wonderful. This is a beautifully decorated, comfortable, and extremely well-equipped unit. It is a home, and we felt so welcome the moment we walked in. It has everything! Appealing and thoughtful decor, comfy bedding, plush linens, great kitchen equipment (good knives! And everything else you could want!), strong wifi, private outdoor space with nicely furnished lanais, quality beach equipment, new large appliances, and plenty of essentials (soaps, paper goods, etc.) provided for our full stay. The entire unit was sparkling clean. The manager, Mike, is extremely responsive and helpful. The area is lovely and very quiet; the two pools in the complex (one nearby, but not too close) are so enjoyable. We have already booked for next year and we can't wait to get back to this fantastic villa. Mahalo to the owners for putting so much into their place for visitors to love. We give this property an unqualified positive recommendation.

I booked this place for part of my husband’s family to stay nearby, and they said it was lovely and they were happy there. I didn’t actually see the place, but also didn’t hear any complaints.

Condo 1802 was perfect for our family. My daughter and her family are all athletic. The children could go to the pool, hot tub, fitness center and tennis courts on their own and we would know they were nearby. The condo was clean and comfortable. It had everything we needed in the kitchen. Also plenty of linens. Everyone packed light so the washer and dryer got used a lot too! Thanks for everything.
Cynthia K.
March 2024

Great space and location! Perfect for our needs. Parking can get tricky in the evening as there are very few spots that are not marked reserved and when you finally do find one it can be a bit of a walk back. But other than that everything was perfect!

We had a great stay at this Colony Villas condo. The unit is in a great location within the complex—close to the main pool but not too close. Colony villas is a little further from Queens Market and Kings’ Shops (slightly more than a mile if you wanted to walk) but it’s quieter. The kitchen was well equipped and there were plenty of beach supplies that we unfortunately didn’t get to use. Check in was easy, but a map of the complex with our check in instructions would have been really helpful as we arrived late at night and as typical for the area, there are very few outside lights so it was hard to find the building. Check out was simple which was much appreciated. We visited the pool every day. The main pool is closest to the unit and is also where the bbq grills are. The second pool is a bit further away but it gets very little use. We went there one day because all the chaise lounges were being used at the main pool and no one was at the other pool (which has a kiddie pool but no hot tub). I definitely recommend this condo!

Not only was the home fully stocked with everything you need but it also had everything for our beach days for us and the kids! The community has a great pool and the home itself is tucked back and private. This is our favorite place to stay by far!

We enjoyed our stay at this property. It was very clean and comfortable, and the kitchen/beach supplies are well stocked. The living room furniture has been updated since the photos were taken, too. The only thing that proved to be a bit of a pain for us was having two cars and only one parking spot. The listing doesn’t explain that there are other spots to park within the resort area but they fill up every day, so it became a daily stress for us trying to search for limited parking whenever we used our second vehicle, and sometimes wouldn’t find any. Otherwise, we really enjoyed our stay and would come back.

We have to say we appreciated the management’s responses to our concerns, they sent out a carpet cleaning company to have the carpets and furniture cleaned and the baseboards wiped down and the slider washed right away. This unit is tired and could use an update.

Thank you so much for a very comfortable stay at your beautiful condo. We had everything we needed for the week and really appreciated the full kitchen, laundry, beach towels and chairs. The location is great and the condo neighborhood was quiet and family friendly. Nice pool and hot tub. Close to shopping, beaches, grocery stores.

Well they spent two whole days working on the back gate but still never got the entry gate to open. Still blocked off with pylons. Also the downstairs toilet is a bit wobbly. If the next occupants could pick up some pepper that would be great. The place has salt but no pepper. The beach chairs are a bit worn but still functional. Other then these things it is a great place to stay and we would definitely come back again.

Location was good. This unit was not spotless in terms of cleanliness, but not terrible. At the price per night, my expectations were higher. The kitchen is not well equipped (dull knives, not enough dishwasher detergent, only 2 kitchen towels provided, about 1 tsp of salt/pepper, and only 3 bowls!). Technically can sleep 8; felt full with 2 couples and 3 kids. Three bedrooms upstairs, 2 with queen beds, 1 w two twins. One rollaway cot with an awful mattress and a sofa bed which we did not use. Main bathtub drain very slow. There are only 6 dining chairs (yet sleeps 8?!) Zero beach equipment included with the property. Also wouldn't hurt to add some hooks or someplace to hang wet towels and such as there were none and the rules forbid hanging things outside. We loved the pools at Waikoloa Colony Villas, and the fact we were in Hawaii on a vacation!

This unit is well-situated in the Waikoloa Colony Villas. It is quiet and peaceful but a short distance to shopping and beach. As noted by previous reviews, the unit is very well equipped in the kitchen. The beds are very comfortable. Our family group included a 7 month old, and the Pack and Play was a great plus. The owner is so helpful and easy to contact and communicate with. We would definitely stay here again!

There were several items about this Waikoloa Colonies condo that we found undesirable. The cleanliness of the condo was not very good. We found that the coffee maker still contained coffee grounds in it as did the coffee pot. The upstairs shower flow is so low making it very difficult to rinse off and could use a hand held shower head instead. The upstairs shower pan looks as if it has not been cleaned in very long time and was stained with dirt. The upstairs toilet would move around and the TP dispenser was so low that the TP would get knocked to the floor most times the toilet was used. Several of the vertical curtains were missing on the downstairs sliding door. At least one of the dining table chairs was taped and glued back together. The condo could use a major remodel. We enjoyed the pool area which was very clean and well maintained.

Paul's unit was beautifully appointed. It had everything. A very well stocked kitchen and perfectly located. Only complaint was the blinds in the kitchen...very difficult to use to get out onto the lanai. Paul was easy to deal with and very accommodating. Would highly recommend this unit to anyone.

February 2024

This is a very nice place to stay. I was a bit concerned about the check-in ahead of time, but it worked out perfectly. The unit is beautiful and very upscale. There was an abundance of beach towels which was very much appreciated. The grounds and facilities available in this complex are very well kept up. It was too bad that the back entrance gate was not working as this unit is located very near that back gate. Hopefully the complex can get it up to speed in the near future. I would definitely recommend this unit and hopefully we can stay here when return to the Big Island.

I always try to leave a detailed review about any property that I stay at.... so here it goes: This is a larger complex but the directions that were given were very accurate from the airport. If you follow them you will arrive without complications. There are two gates but you can only come IN the front gate. The back gate is only for exit as there are cones in front of the entrance. There are two pools. The closest one is colder and quieter. The other is warmer and also has a hot tub and barbeque area. Your key works for both. There is a pretty strict noise ordinance. We were there with another group who stayed in a different home and they had 2 children. There was an immediate noise ordinance complaint on their door in the afternoon due to excess noise from the kids at the pool at 8AM. There was a generous amount of shampoo, conditioner and body wash. There is a small bottle of dishwashing soap and a new scrubber. There was an ample amount of washing machine detergent. There are NO condiments other than salt and pepper. The furniture is very nice and comfortable. The beds were nice. The mattresses are FIRM. I liked that, but my friends did not care for hard mattresses. The parking spaces are small so be prepared if you have a larger vehicle. We had an Expedition so it was a bit of a challenge. You CAN walk to the Queens and Kings Shoppe and to the beach...but it is a hike! The golf course is nice and close. All in all a great location and property.

We loved this comfortable, quiet house on beautiful grounds! Lionel was a great host. He answered questions quickly, and communicated well. Our favorites about the house; super-comfortable beds, the spacious, light-filled living room with comfortable seating, and close location to the pool, but still a private setting with very little outside noise. The view out the living room windows, across the golf course was lovely, and the lanai was also private, with nice planting around it. The house was very clean, and having ceiling fans in all the bedrooms really helped with keeping the temperature comfortable. It is also a short 10 minute walk to the beautiful Hilton complex, where you can walk around for free. Our least favorite things: we didn’t use the lanai as much as we wanted to because the furniture was very uncomfortable and awkwardly placed. Investing in a couple of arm chairs and a small side table for drinks, and moving them from the uneven steps to the other side of the dining table would help a lot! The kitchen was, overall, very good for a rental. But there was no Kuerig, and the coffee maker is definitely on its last legs. We could have used more plates. With 6 of us, we had to wash plates after every meal, and didn’t have any extras for serving food. Also, not a big deal for us, but the soaking tub in the master bedroom is only effective for a small child to soak in! 😉 Overall, we would definitely choose to stay there again and highly recommend it!

Totally enjoyed our stay. Well equipped kitchen, games, beach toys, beach towels, chairs, snorkel gear, baby crib. Very clean condo.(Could leave cleaning supplies for daily cleaning: ie: windex, disinfect wipes, ant spray, etc) Mattresses on beds were too soft for our liking...need new pillows for beds... Easy access to pools, shops and beaches! Great location...quiet surroundings. Simple check in and out. Property management on top of everything! Texted us several times to make sure everything was good! Would highly recommend. We are saving $ for a return trip. Thank you for sharing your wonderful condo!

Property was plenty big for the 4 of us. Kitchen well stocked with cooking tools, etc. Property proximity to community pool, tennis court, etc. is good. Property is not well cleaned. Rugs are not sized for the room and is a safety issue. Multiple members of my party tripped by the rug and hit leg on the bed frame (with bruised leg!). Patio furniture is dirty. Suggest changing outdoor furniture that can be cleaned.

Thank you for opening up your home to us. We enjoyed our stay. Everything was very clean, as seen in the photos.
