Chuck & Mary Lepley - Original Owners - Clean well cared for - Beautiful purchased this Condo in 2003
Why Chuck & Mary Lepley - Original Owners - Clean well cared for - Beautiful chose Puako
We purchased our Waikoloa Colony Villa in 2003 a year before it was built and were fortunate to select the best villa location and views in the gated community. We have travelled to Hawaii every year since 1993. The first 10 years to Maui. In 2003 we came to the Big Island and fell in love with it and with the Waikoloa Beach Resort. On that trip our family unanimously decided to buy there instead of Maui. We love the uncluttered size of the Big Island and the wide variety of activities. Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa volcanoes are spectacular--both are nearly 14,000 feet and seen from our villa. And, the active volcano at Volcano National Park is amazing! The Kohala coast has fantastic weather--lots of sun & very little rain. The Kohala coast resorts of Waikoloa Beach, Mauna Lani, and Mauna Kea are truly a paradise. The range of activities is endless. It offers everything without being congested. The two major towns, Kona & Hilo, are close enough to go to, but far enough to not infringe on your peaceful Hawaiian paradise. There are a wide variety of great side trips ... Hawi ... Pololu Point ... Waipio Valley ... Botanic Gardens ... Volcano National Park (active volcano) ... Rainbow Falls ... World famous Observatories at top of Mauna Kea ... drive over the Saddle Road ... Waimea farmers market ... whale watching ... Dolphin Quest at the Hilton ... on and on. Our villa has beautiful views both from inside and from the lanai. The 10th hole of the Waikoloa Beach Course provides a variety of swings to watch and the villa becomes the 'half-way house' if you play! We eat most of our meals on the lanai ... very relaxing! We are very fortunate in loving to live in Colorado with family near and always look forward to returning to our home away from home in Hawaii. Our home is in excellent condition & well cared for. When the plane door opens the refreshing and relaxing sensation is immediate! We have no doubt you will love our villa as much as we do. Mahalo!

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.
Great Condo, Great Owners within a Very Nice Complex
We were lucky enough to spend 3 wks. here on a family trip with 4 generations split between 3 units. Colony Villas is a lovely complex with beautiful pools, lush landscaping, and nice BBQ's. And the other units our family members rented were nice as well. But I do believe ours was the best. That feeling started when I made my initial email request & Mary called me almost immediately, rather than just emailing. She & Chuck were so friendly, helpful & great to deal with throughout the whole process. They spend a lot of time at their condo and it shows in all the nice little touches. This is not a 'generic' rental with just the basics!!! Certainly different things matter to different people & the pictures on the listing show you the unit well, but here are some of the things we really appreciated: comfortable beds & pillows, flat screen TV's in living room & master, TV's in the other 2 bedrooms, wonderfully stocked kitchen (sharp knifes too), wi-fi that was fast (even with several devices all using at once), ALL the beach toys (chairs, boogie boards, cooler, ice packs, beach bags), lots & lots of beach towels, full-size stacked washer & dryer, open downstairs floor plan with comfortable furniture (room for all 6 of us without feeling cramped), great location within complex looking out onto 10th fairway of Beach Golf Course. If you are a golfer, the Lepley's have the Gold Membership that transfers to their guests - so we played the King's Course for $50 and the Beach Course for $75. Discount applies to club rentals as well, as some in our party did not bring their clubs & rented beautiful Nike sets (men's & ladies) for $25. This is a huge benefit & savings over paying regular rates at both courses. If I had to list a negative, I'd say for us its the fact that this complex does not have ocean views - BUT, especially at night with the sliding doors & windows open & fans going, you 'feel' like you are close to the ocean with all the palm trees & landscaping plants swaying in the delightful breeze. We've visited the Big Island many times, and stayed in many other complexes in Waikoloa Beach & Kona area. We've had great ocean views, but we've never had a more comfortable, delightful place to stay. My dining tip - The Beach Tree at the Four Seasons Hualalai for great food, gorgeous sunsets & live music - NOT as expensive as you might think. For Shaved Ice - Anuenue, up by Kawaihae Harbor - whatever flavor you pick, get it with a snow cap...YUM.
Go No Further!
Our family has had the good fortune of taking many wonderful vacations together. At the heart of a great vacation is your lodging and this vacation home builds a wonderful foundation for a memorable experience. I admit that we spoil ourselves when we travel, and after 25 days at this property, we are pampered to the max! Everything thing about this home is first class. It is fully equipped for folks like us who love to cook and it is wired for all of the modern technology conveniences. Most of all there is a feel of the "aloha spirit" that is imparted to the property by the owners. I can promise you this....if you are looking for a wonderful location, a lovely home with wonderful amenities, access to great beaches, first class golf, and great folks to work with on the details.....go no further!
Fun was had by all of us.
We just stayed here Aug. 01, 2011 to Aug. 08, 2011. I would stay here again without a doubt. Very close to the large and beautiful beaches, shopping, variety of restaurants, and grocery stores. The boogie boards and ice chest were used most days. It was very helpful not to have to pack our own, which was our original plan. The beds were all comfortable, the kitchen has everything needed to cook if you should choose to. We made breakfast a few mornings, and packed our lunches most days. We filled all the beds with adults, but never felt the house was too small, the living area has plenty of seating. We found both pool areas to be clean and enjoyed them in the evenings after long days at the beach, or driving to Hilo. The residence all welcomed us, knowing we were tourists, but wanted to make our visit as wonderful as it could be. Overall great place to stay if you want to really be together with those you're traveling with. Our only problem with our vacation, we needed more days!
Comfortable, quiet and great views.
This rental property was as beautiful as described, very tasteful furnishings and very well kept. It was a great place for our family to be together for vacation. Chuck and Mary were very helpful in answering our questions. We even had availability to a folding crib, highchair and stroller for our grandchild.
Loved the Waikoloa community, shopping was fun, easy walking, and beautiful scenery. The Hilton was close by, and had turtles and dolphins to experience.
You do need a car to get around on the island, please take the time to drive all the way around, the island has rainforest, lava, and active vocanos.The airport is 17 miles away, but an easy drive. Wild goats and donkeys were interesting along the highway.
I would recommend this condo to my friends. "A" beach is next to the Marriot, uncrowded, shady, and a great place to relax. Thanks Chuck and Mary for a great experience.
We are delighted that your stay as our guests was the vacation in paradise you were hoping for! We are pleased we could provide a home away from home for you to enjoy! Perhaps you will be able to return one day. Have a great life! All the best and Mahalo, Chuck & Mary
