Our family stayed for seven nights in a two bedroom condo (9L) at Kolea. The property was beyond gorgeous and in an immaculate location. After extensive research, we zeroed in on this location because it was the only true ocean front property in Big Island with access to a swimmable beach. We enjoyed taking a walk along the gorgeous Anaehoomalu... More

Came for a work related function at the Hilton Waikoloa. Learned years ago if possible to not stay at a hotel and instead rent a condo/villa, especially in Hawaii. Once again we made the correct choice. The place is great. Big kitchen with high end appliances. Fully air conditioned. Deck with grill. Need to make sure you get one that... More

For family fun in luxury, Kolea is it! Beautiful homes and condos, a fab spa/pool/etc, and path to beach. Close to shops and restaurants and the incomparable Lava Lava Beach Club for happy hour. Treat yourself next time you're on Big Island...stay at Kolea.

If you're debating between the Hilton Waikoloa and Kolea, go with Kolea! We did and are very happy with our choice. We booked Unit 9L, a 2 BD/2BR condo for a 7 night stay. Beautiful unit, tastefully decorated. Very clean condo, great condition. Plenty of room to spread out for a family of 4. Beds were very comfortable with soft... More

We've visited one of the Hawaiian islands almost every year for the past 10 years... and we often rent condos... This is BY FAR the nicest one we've ever had the pleasure of staying in. It's in a newer complex closest to A-Bay (aka the beach), however it is next to Marriott so if you are looking for something more... More

Kolea is a lovely gated community, if that's what you are looking for. The villas are well-appointed with elevators to access higher floors which is great with kids, groceries and baggage. The beach club is comfortable, clean and elegant and A bay is a fine beach and access couldn't be easier. The water is clean and warm and there are... More

I have to say that it is rare to find a place where the website does not do it justice. Kolea is that place. The condos are stunning and well stocked with everthing you need to cook lovely meals and even entertain friends. The beach club is quiet and clean. The staff is so friendly and helpful. There is not... More

The condos offer all of the comforts of home and then some. The furnishings differ in each condo, but it seems that everything you will need to enjoy the surrounding is readily available. In our condo there were plenty of beach towels, beach chairs, and boogie boards to enjoy the day at the great beach that is walking distance from... More

Kolea is a fantastic place to stay on the west side of the island. The condo is high end and well stocked. The private pool and hot tub were very nice. You are a short walk to Anaeho'omalu Beach which has a rental hut with everything you need. They do a deal for $35/person you get unlimited access to all... More

Once again, Waikoloa Vacation Rentals did not disappoint. Not only do they manage a large inventory of gorgeous condos in Waikoloa, but the customer service can't be beat. From the moment you enter the Kolea complex, you are truly in paradise. Our condo was clean, well appointed, and thoughtfully stocked with delicious Kona coffee.
