About Trisha Gablehouse

We are Trisha and John Gablehouse and we manage our Kolea 11F condo and will do our best to make sure your stay in our condo is the best one ever. We have thought of every detail and you won't be disappointed. My husband is a Battalion Chief with the City of Seattle Fire Department and I am a Women's Ministry Director for Women's Explosion Ministries. Taking care of people is our job. We are truly blessed to be a blessing. We can be reached at 360.632.8389.

Trisha Gablehouse purchased this condo in 2010

Why Trisha Gablehouse chose Waikoloa Village

Kolea is the 'perfect place' to enjoy the Big Island of Hawaii. It is the only Beachfront location in all of Waikoloa Beach Resort. Need I say more...this is the main reason we purchased here. Also, these Luxury Villas are gorgeous in everyway...from the African Mahogan to the 9 Ft. Retractable Wall and Outdoor Kitchen...this is truly paradise.

What makes this condo unique

When you stay with us, you will enjoy the feel of ALOHA. We had our dear friend, who is authentically Hawaiian, help us design our unit. Mealani Morgan, of Hawaii's Home Impressive, worked with us to bring old Hawaii with new Hawaii. She doesn't miss a beat. You will notice decor, accents, and design to truly reflect the essence of the islands and make this place a memory forever.

Property was nice but too many rules for renters

  • 2 of 5

Was asked to avoid running air conditioner if possible, it was very humid without it on even with windows open. The shower takes forever to get warm and flow is weak. The lights were inadequate as they were too dim in bathroom. Checkout was at 10 (which is really early) but to avoid extra cleaning charge had to remove sheets from beds , wash them and put in dryer. Found this last rule extremely ridiculous especially when you are trying to pack to leave. Your cleaning staff should be taking care of the sheets not your guests. Mattress in master bedroom was not comfortable at all.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your input Scott. We have gone to great lengths to keep our place in excellent order for renters and in doing so for seven years our place is in amazing condition. After seven years of rental, you are the first with this response. We will look at our list again and rethink things through. As far as the bed, we stay here too and have gone to great lengths with the mattress and love it. Merry Christmas and again, thanks for your review.

Great Place!

  • 5 of 5

Trisha was very professional during the signing up for the place. Their condo is beautiful, tastefully decorated and in a great location. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Very conveniently located. The only regret is that we ate out most of the nights and only cooked one night. Their kitchen and grill are great! The cost of the stay is very reasonable. Thanks.

The Absolute Ideal Rental - You Won't Want to Leave

  • 5 of 5

Amazing location. Every amenity imaginable. Gorgeous views. Spotless.

Trisha and John's rental is absolutely perfect. The location of Kolea in the Waikoloa Beach Resort can't be beat. Water views. Walk to the pool, beach, hiking, shops, restaurants. Convenient to the Queen K to explore the Big Island.

The condo itself is gorgeous, comfortable, spacious and has everything you can possibly need for a relaxing vacation. From the moment I inquired about the property, Trisha has been gracious, responsive and extremely helpful.

There should be an option of more than 5 stars! We are all lucky that Trisha and John have shared their Hawaiian paradise with us.

Beautiful - Feels Like Home

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of staying at Trisha and John's place for 12 nights. What a great place to stay - close to the beach and a ton of local amenities. Everything was perfect - from the initial inquiry to the check out process. Trisha was with us every step of the way to answer questions and provide great guidance. We will definitely stay here on our next return to The Big Island. You will enjoy the proximity to shops, restaurants, and local "finds." We HIGHLY recommend this unit. You won't be disappointed.
