Family vacation

Feb 18th, 2020

This is our second visit to this resort. The first time was with adult friends Jan 2919 and the second time with our eldest son, daughter-in-law and 2 grandchildren aged 3yrs & 16 months Fen 2020 Both trips were excellent. The accommodation here is beyond expectations. The buildings are built well The gardens are beautiful. It’s a quiet resort. The first time we had a top floor (3rd) 3 bed apartment 13F and this time we had a ground floor 3 bedroom apartment 11A. Both the apartments were fully equipped. The resort is child friendly without being child orientated. The beach club (free) is good for everyone with a main pool and hot tub with free towels provided. It also has a separate beach pool for the little ones. The beach is easily accessible and safe, not that great for snorkeling. The airport is around 40 mins easy drive on the freeway. There is a good ABC store a short walk away from the resort along with restaurants and shops. There is also a Costco just past the airport towards Kona. We will be going back and would recommend this resort to anyone. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

The Big Island's Best Condo Complex!

Nov 29th, 2019

We've stayed here many times now - the best spot on the Big Island! Our favorite unit is Kolea 11G (available here: bigislandbeachcondo.com). Excellent proximity to pool and beach - one of the nicer units in the whole complex. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Kolea 12F and 9M Spectacular!

Nov 16th, 2019

We just got back from another amazing stay at Kolea. We went a week before our kids came and stayed in a 2 bedroom the first week and a 3 bedroom the second week. I'll start with the 2 bedroom, 9M, first. It was very comfortably furnished. Had comfortable beds and was very spacious. We ate in most of the nights since it was just the two of us and the kitchen was well stocked and the grill on the porch was very nice. One thing I would like to note is that for a two bedroom 9M had to have had about the best view you can get at Kolea. I would highly recommend this unit to couples or anyone traveling with a few kids. Moving on to the 3 bedroom. When I called Waikoloa Vacation Rentals I asked them what was the best 3 bedroom they had available because we wanted to make this trip special. They pointed us to 12F. After staying there I can believe that it is one of the best units, if not the best. It had an amazing view of the beach and ocean and was close to the pool. The unit was well furnished and I would like to note that the lanai was very nicely furnished and we spent most of our time out there. I would highly recommend this to anyone that it is in their budget. Moving on to the management company, Waikoloa Vacation Rentals. They were great. Anyone that rents units from them gets access to the Hilton Waikoloa, which was great when the family was there. For a vacation rental company they offered the best service I have ever experienced. They check in with you the day after you arrive to see if you need anything. They helped us move units and made sure that we could move directly from one to the other since check out time was in the morning and check in was later in the day. Can't say enough about them or Kolea............. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Mosquito Festival

Sep 8th, 2019

Waikoloa is very nice and Kolea as a development has some nice amenities (such as the proximity to A Bay), but unfortunately I can’t provide a positive review to this home due to a major insect problem. The property manager was responsive and attempted to resolve the issue (sent out an exterminator on more than one occasion) – but it was never completely solved. The mosquitoes are very, very bad at this home and make the patio almost unusable. After the first day, my family was covered with bites. We eventually noticed that other ground floor tenants in our building did not utilize their patios – so perhaps the problem is not this particular unit but the building or area in general. I have stayed at other Waikoloa properties and never noticed any mosquitoes. But at Kolea 7D, it’s a constant. You can load up with deet, but that’s only a short term solution. If you rent this unit (or maybe on the ground floor in Kolea), you should avoid the patio as much as possible and keep the sliding doors closed. We also had to deal with a centipede attack a whole mess of cockroaches. There were some smaller issues, such as the air conditioning (worked well in master bedroom and living room/kitchen, not so well in other bedrooms) and hot water (not working in master shower) – but these were only minor inconveniences. The main thing is the insects. When we moved into the unit, we cleaned up several dead insects that were in hard to clean spaces (corners, behind furniture, etc.). But the live ones kept coming. Ultimately, my spouse became disgusted by the cockroaches and we moved out five days earlier than scheduled. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Kolea 13D was amazing

Aug 26th, 2019

This is the only condo complex on the entire island with beach access, so it's special right away. It's so nice not to have to get into the car to visit the beach. Unite 13D is 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and is on the ground floor, opening up to a huge, green grass area. Perfect for kids to run around while parents enjoy a mai tai on the large lanai. The lanai felt very private, so we were very comfortable hanging out there, and we loved the huge, built-in bbq. Cooking a few meals at home saved us a ton of money and was fun to just be able to enjoy sunsets from home. The unit was a 2-minute walk to the pool area, so really close without any noise. The pool area has a kiddie pool with a sandy "beach" and a nice, large pool, plus a hot tub, outdoor showers, seating areas, and a gym. 13D allowed us to use their garage, which was nice to keep our car cool. The unit gave us access to its closet full of boogie boards, snorkel gear, beach chairs/umbrellas, coolers, etc. It was so nice to not have to buy or rent any of that gear! The unit was very clean and had beautiful, Tommy Bahama furniture. The kitchen was very well equipped and had everything we needed. The onsite management was excellent. We would return here in a heartbeat and are already planning our return trip. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER
