Beautiful location. Fabulous views. Walking distance to most places (shops, restaurants, beach, groceries). HOWEVER, this condo unit needs a serious deep cleaning. Bedroom carpeting and area rugs are filthy. Couch and love seat are iffy. After walking barefoot on the tile floors for an afternoon the bottoms of my feet were black. Also, the ice maker leaks so woke up...

If you're staying in Waikoloa and need a condo, this is best experience. Pristine and modern, yet family friendly, it's located ocean front and has an amazing pool/hot tub that is perfect for sunset (or really anytime). On the beach by the condo is A-Bay full of turtles. You can easily walk to the Shops for a Starbucks or a...

We stayed 3 days in Kolea 1D. This 3 bedroom 3 bathroom condo was magnicently appointed and conveniently located near the pool and beach (3 minute walk). We also were a 10 minute walk to the mega Hilton and could use the facilities and charge to our condo there. We preferred the quiet uncrowned infinity pool at Kolea. The development...

We (two couples) just spent a week in Unit 8E in early January. The unit is on the second floor (elevator)overlooking beautiful community pool/spa and A bay. The unit was very clean, well appointed and the views from the lanai were outstanding. Everything was as marketed and each evening we could hear beautiful music from Lava Lava Beach Club.

We stayed in unit 3C at Kolea and it was truly beautiful. The views were amazing. So peaceful. What a wonderful view to wake up to every morning! From the furnishings to the amenities - top notch. 5 star! We loved it and never wanted to leave. Such a peaceful place, like a slice of heaven.

Only beach front condo resort in Waikoloa. Condos are well maintained, granite counter tops, stainless steel appliances, its a short walk to the beach club and to the beach. About 45 minutes north of the airport. Everything we needed was in the condo, kitchen utensils, laundry detergent for the washing machine and coffee beans.

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...
