Unit 13D is a wonderful 3 br, 3-bath condo unit with all the appliances and comforts you would need for a family. The unit is beautifully air-conditioned which in summer is nice to have. The master bedroom and attached bath are heavenly and the kids told me the someone could sleep in the master bathroom. The kitchen is nicely stocked with pots and pans and spices. We ate out one night and stayed in the rest of the time because it was so very nice to do so. The attached grill in the outdoor patio - just wonderful. The kids played all day - we went to 3 different beaches while there and they were all very nice but Hapuna Beach was our favorite and dubbed the "default" beach by the kids. Oh, the unit had boogie boards and we did not have to rent a thing. It made for a lovely vacation with 2 teenagers, a grandma and the two of us. Also, the internet worked great and I was able to squeeze in a little bit of work. The unit was clean and beautifully decorated. We were very pleased with the unit and the facilities.

Don't rent 14D! Shawn Fransen is part owner of the is condo with his dad. When I arrived the condo was dirty, lights didn't work, no hot water, toilet was broken, closets were cluttered, walls were dirty, the refrigerator was propped open with a moldy towel. There was a second refrigerator at the end of the counter next to the living room area, ugly and white, that I guess was the substitute refrigerator. We found out that didn't work either after we put our groceries in it and then spoiled. I notified Mr. Fransen directly and he said he would have his maintenance person over to fix all problems. I was already loosing precious vacation time dealing with this mess. The maintenance man arrived mid day and told me the manager was on vacation as well as Mr. Fransen. He also explained he doesn't really maintain this condo because Mr. Fransen doesn't pay him. He advised me to find another place to stay as he would not be able to fix everything. Mr. Shawn Fransen refused to refund any money to me. We were lost $2700 plus the cost of a new condo. I did contact Waikoloa and they apologized and explained they do not manage 14D but they were kind and found us a beautiful condo to stay in. Costly learning lesson and hopefully after you read this it will save you from the scam of the Fransen's. I do have photos but not sure how to post them.

We rented a 3bed/3.5 bath for 3 couples and it worked out perfectly, and cheaper than hotels for us at nearby Hilton or Marriott. We came for the Lavaman triathlon (packet pickup at Hilton with race start near Marriott) and so our condo was perfectly located. We had a great time using the "Aloha Day" equipment at the shack on the beach ($40 from 10-2pm on Sun, Wed and Fri) trying out the snorkel gear, kayaks, aquabikes and paddleboards. When done at the beach, we would jump in the jacuzzi to relax and watch the sunset. It was a fantastic experience at a great location.

Wonderful perfect location. Condo 9A was beautiful and rented through waikoloa vacation rentals. They were great. Loved the Hilton pass they included. Got to use the pools and then escape the madness. Enjoy the A Bay beach. There were always chairs available and we rented a cabana and did the Aloha Day from Ocean Sports. Loved using all the beach toys. They also offer yoga on the beach and on paddle boards if you’re interested. I hope we’re able to come back soon.

Our family LOVED our vacation stay at Kolea 11L in Waikoloa Beach. The luxury condo was spacious, clean and well appointed with a gorgeous view of the ocean. Everything in perfect working order including a gourmet kitchen stocked with all pots, pans, appliances and high end fixtures. Access to a private resort pool, hot tub and work out facility with an easy walk to the beach. We hope to come back someday and would recommend this specific condo unit to anyone.

Overall - a fantastic place for our vacation. The location and amenities were perfect for us. We look forward to returning. Clean refreshing pool and loved the private lanai with BBQ. Easy to get groceries and go to restaurants if you want. The workout facility is quite small but is being improved in the future.

We have booked through Waikoloa Vacation Rentals for many years and the follow up and service from the entire team is always exceptional. In addition to the great service, follow up visits are made to ensure your are completely satisfied with the beautiful and spacious units at Kolea. Thank you again!

We booked 3 separate, 3 bedroom villas for a group of 16 family and friends for a week and we all can’t wait to come back next winter. The service was prompt and so nice, everything is so clean and the beach club is a great happy medium to the busy Hilton. The location is perfect- we walked everywhere and on top of everything we appropriated the extended checkout because our flight out was very late and we had a sick baby. That was very appritiated! We can’t wait to come back!

Our experience at Kolea was absolutely amazing. Our unit was clean and big, although it was a bit of a walk to the pool. The pool was great, and so was the hot tub, and this place is within walking distance to the Kings market and the Queens market, which have almost everything you will need for your trip.

This unit is the one you want to stay at! Beautiful, spacious, three bedroom ground floor! This unit is VERY well appointed from the bedding and towels to the Viking kitchen appliances and LG washer and dryer. Each bedroom has a full bathroom attached, that makes it very private if having two or more couples. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything that one would need, along with spices and tinfoil, saran wrap etc.. Having breakfast, lunch and dinner out on the lanai is a must! There is a great bbq, comfortable seating area, two lounge chairs and bar fridge outside that made cooking and entertaining super easy. The front of this unit opens up connecting the living and dining room area with the lanai. Kolea 1A is a short walk to the pool and beach club. There is even beach toys/floaties for kids to use instead of going and buying them! I would highly recommend this unit to anyone looking for a great place to stay to get the most out of their time on holidays. We had an amazing ten days of beautiful sunsets/sunshine and accommodations, and will definitely be renting it again the next time we are able to go back!
