Our family felt so relaxed. The condo offered everything we needed and more! The pool area was clean and staff are friendly. The access to the beach allows for quick little visits of you don't want to commit to a whole beach day. The shops are all great little walks, plus two great courses for golfing. I was able to...

We stayed in unit 3B. This was our 9th trip to the Big Island and 3rd time to stay at Kolea. We love that we can walk to the beach and to shopping. Building 3 has views of the ocean. We spent our 3rd Thanksgiving here. I can't say enough great things about the location!

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

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.
