"We had a wonderful time over Christmas at this condo. There was our family of five (children 5, 7, 11) with my parents and we all felt we had plenty of space.
The condo was tastefully decorated and very well equipped. The location was perfect. This was our third visit to the Big Island and we preferred this location over Kona. It was close to many great beaches, restaurants and shops. We preferred Hapuna and Mauna Kea beach. A-Bay is great for the sunset because it has a cluster of palm trees that you can get in your sunset photos.
The beach amenities are really what made our stay. The whole family used the boogie boards and there were enough for all five of us. The coolers, beach chairs, umbrellas and other items were so useful and were used almost daily.
Alice and Wilson were so nice to work with and provided a lot of helpful information before we arrived. They even left guidebooks at the condo to use.
We will definitely stay again!"

Fantastic vacation! Superb accommodation! Very responsive owner!
"For the first time we rented a property listed on vrbo and we were rather sceptical and not sure what to expect... it was absolutely great! The property was very clean and exactly as described, the location what we needed (close to the restaurants, shops, tennis court, tennis clinics offered at the Hilton, BBQ, beach and plenty of golfing), the owner was extremely responsive! The villa was so well equipped! In the kitchen you found whatever you were looking for (even some salt, sandwich bags and so many other small but necessary things, you would not even have thought of). We arrived in Kona, went straight to Costco, did our shopping and were set for two weeks of wonderful vacation. We used the BBQ many times, we enjoyed very much having dinner on the patio, my younger daughter was delighted to find everything in the house needed to spend a wonderful day at the beach. Great rental property, we hope we can return in December."

"We have been renting vacation homes from owners for over 10 years, sorting through many listings looking for that perfect rental. In March 2015, we chose a real winner. The Lepley’s were great to work with and villa and the Colony Villa property were a delight and exceeded our expectations. From the first day we arrived it felt like “home”. It’s spacious and although there was only two of us there is definitely lots of room for 6 adults. It’s nicely decorated and the furniture and beds are very comfortable. The unit was very clean, in good repair and all the appliances were in good working condition. They provided everything we needed for visits to the beach. The lanai faces east, a great spot for our early morning coffee. By mid-afternoon it is in cool shade. Perfect for afternoon drinks and supper. When we were looking for late afternoon sun- we simply moved our chairs out onto the lawn. The commercial grade gas BBQs located at the end of the driveway made cooking supper quick and easy and the BBQs were cleaned regularly by the maintenance staff. It’s the social gathering place in the early evening! The Colony Villa property is nicely landscaped and well maintained. We enjoyed lazy days around the pool. The water was warm and deck areas were clean and had several lounge chairs and tables. We took advantage of the golf discount package offered by the Lepley’s. We played both courses and found them to be in good shape. The friendly staff at the golf course always managed to find a tee time that worked for us.
The Waikoloa Beach resort area has a variety of restaurants, shops and a small supermarket and of course the best beach at “A” Bay. But, be sure to rent a car, pack your Big Island guide and GPS. With its quick access to major highways, the location of the Colony Villas is perfect for exploring this remarkable island. The upgrades and improvements to the Saddle Road allowed us to safely cross to Hilo in just over an hour, and reach the volcanoes in under two hours. Our day trip adventures included: secluded beaches; lush rainforests; quaint and charming old Hawaiian towns; finding local eateries and coffee shops; hikes over the lava to historic sites and national parks; fascinating volcanoes; and interesting botanical gardens. One of the highlights of our trip was a tour to Mauna Kea summit for sunset and star gazing with Adventure Tours. Not to be missed! It was a memorable way to end our GREAT vacation."
