Kolea Unit 11C - great unit!

Jul 16th, 2019

We stayed in Unit 11C at Kolea and it was great! It’s a 2BR-2BA unit with lots of space. The beds are great, the rooms are big, as are the bathrooms. The kitchen is well-equipped. We have stayed at other VRBOs where the owners don’t really update kitchen equipment and that’s off-putting. This place was AWESOME. The Lanai has a great view of A-Bay beach. Also the owners have lots of board games, which our family used some of during our stay. We didn’t use the TV much but it looks like they have it set up for easy use. They provide beach chairs and towels, which were very handy! The unit was very clean and it is very well-furnished. The location is great because you can easily get to the Kings’ Mall and the Queens’ Marketplace if you want to do some shopping, buy groceries, or go to the movies. The movie theater has dining, which seemed like a good option. The Island Gourmet store has groceries and prepared foods, which was handy for us. We ate at the Daylight Mind Coffee restaurant and really enjoyed the food and service there. The Hilton is also close by if you want to eat out. The beach on the property is very nice and calm. If you have young kids, it’s great. Also, if you walk past Lava-Lava Beach Club, you are most likely to see turtles sunning themselves on the sand or rocks. The hot tub is nice and big at the club. The one drawback is that the pool is very small at this resort. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

6D was a great find

Jul 15th, 2019

This was my first stay at Kolea. We were in unit 6D: 3bdrm/3 bath ground floor unit directly across from an open lot. We had gorgeous view of A-Bay, and were only a minute from the pool. There were 8 of us in the unit (4 adults, 4 teens (3 girls/1 boy). The 3 girls shared a room with twin beds and a trundle. The teen boy had a very nice foldaway bed in the living room. We managed a full week without tripping over each other! Pros: beach access. Cannot stress that enough. Being able to walk straight to the beach and use the beach chairs already provided was huge. Easy for snorkeling and SUP'ing. The overall condo was amazing, as expected. Beds were super comfortable. Top of the line furnishings, kitchen w/wine fridge, plenty of towels for both bathing and beach. Ceiling fans were great. We used the outdoor kitchen, and sat on the lanai daily for breakfast and pre-dinner drinks. Ice machine in fridge was able to keep up with all of us so that was a plus. Great selection of dvds and books. Garage had excellent amount of beach chairs, a wagon, beach toys, and coolers. Your condo is the entire floor; upper floors have elevators directly to their unit! Very secure complex with the locked gate. Even to walk out of the complex, you had to use a security code. The pool required a keycard. No resort fee. Some of the units have access to the Hilton pools; ours did not. Cons: Overall, I felt the condo complex was crammed in there; however, I've been told that if you're up on the 2nd or 3rd floors, that feeling is gone! The pool is lovely but very small and geared towards small kids. It's 3ft deep - the entire pool. Our particular unit needed better A/C; thermostat said it was 72 at all times, no matter what. It was definitely not 72! (Note: we never called the property mgr so there may have been some switch we couldn't figure out; we were just too busy all day!) Also, hooks. There were not enough towel hooks for 8 people for regular bath towels. They need a drying rack for the beach towels/swim suits, maybe in the garage. Overall I would stay again. We had a great time!

AMAZING-AMESOME Villa KOLEA 14 D

Jul 3rd, 2019

We had an incredible time vacationing in Kolea 14D. The unit was very clean and well maintained. We love to cook and it had everything my husband and I needed. We loved the location of this unit as you could walk right out on the grass and it served as a great play area for our kids-it was like having our own private yard! The owner was extremely helpful and responsive. He provided us with lots of tips on what to do on the island-it was extremely helpful! The condo was nicely furnished and very quiet. We loved the Kolea beach club as well it was a great place to relax and hang out and from the beach club you could walk right down to the beach. We highly recommend this condo and plan to book it again next year. It was a 5 star experience! We can't wait to come back! TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Nice facility; those seeking a peaceful and quiet vacation should read

Jul 1st, 2019

Starting with the good: Kolea is attractive, clean, and features an outstanding location just steps from the A-Bay Beach. Our rental unit was clean, and the one issue (A/C on the blink) was addressed by local manager within a half hour - incredibly impressive. The unit had nice appliances and furniture, and was lovely. Unfortunately, I cannot recommend a stay here for anyone seeking a peaceful and/or quiet vacation. I will list what we saw below, in order to filter out as much opinion as I can. - Neighbors children sent through a privacy hedge to play adjacent to ground-floor lanai. The hedges are clearly there to maintain privacy; two of our three days there, these kids were running and yelling past our patio. - Pool area was also dominated by families. Families where there was a lot of raising of voices with children. Pool is small; we did not feel able to simply "soak and enjoy." - So, went to beach. While standing in water, saw a woman whom I recognized as a Kolea renter (from our building) drag a beach chair across my things on my towel. When I asked her why she thought was ok, she responded "I thought you were swimming." I also asked if she would like if someone did that to her things, and she said "No, I wouldn't. I'm sorry." - Not ten minutes later, we saw the operator of the glass bottom boat tour unleash a stream of "F#ckin' Haole!" epithets as someone backed out of the tour at the last minute. Perhaps his "Aloha" shirt was canny irony. - Upstairs neighbors running the laundry at 3:30 a.m. This is audible in the unit below. I'm fairly well traveled, and usually take things as they are presented. I've slept on glaciers, in hostels where the 'bed' was a door set across two sawhorses; at the Metropole in Moscow. I actually LIKE roosters crowing in agricultural communities. This was different - consistently pushy, poor behavior on the part of others at the property. My level of offense will of course differ from anyone else's, and I concur that Kolea has much to offer (nice units, good location). But I do think it is fair to warn potential renters that one thing it does NOT offer is reliable peace and quiet (other reviews also mention noise). If you are a family, this is likely ideal. If you are looking for romance, I'd suggest looking elsewhere. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Excellent Kolea 13D - 3 bdrm 3 bath family condo

May 28th, 2019

Kolea 13D is a pure gem! A fantastic vacation spot for families or couples. Just returned from eight wonderful nights enjoying the condo and everything that the Kolea area has to offer. The owners are meticulous - excellent decor and very clean! The spacious 3 bedrooms, 3 baths and living areas are all gorgeous, nicely appointed, air conditioned and super comfy -- perfect for our vacation with extended family, ages from 19-80 years! This bottom floor unit has a lush grassy area extending out from the lanai, which is great extra space for kids play, tossing a frisbee or lounging. The rich dark wood with Tommy Bahama furniture throughout and the lanai pocket doors opening up one full wall, creates a tropical paradise! 🌴 The kitchen was perfectly stocked for cooking and the outdoor BBQ is a plus for grilling fresh fish. Nice dining areas both inside and on the lanai - a lovely spot for morning coffee or evening cocktails! Plenty of towels for bath and beach, along with beach chairs and water gear to borrow -- boogie boards, snorkeling and more! Lots of shopping and restaurants within a walk or short drive distance. From the beautiful, clean condo -- to the beach club with infinity pool overlooking the beach, lots of loungers and sand bottom kids pool -- to the beach access for swimming and gorgeous sunsets -- you have everything you need right there. And if you want to venture further the other nicest coastal spots on the island are just a short drive. We would highly recommend this wonderful condo. The management was responsive and helpful -- from weeks before we arrived until our departure. We had perfect instructions for everything in the unit and didn't run out of anything! Can't wait to return! 😎 TRIPADVISOR.COM USER
