Colony Villas 806 - Paradise among the Palm Trees...

Greetings! Welcome to our villa. We bought this place as recently as December 2012, and practically everything in it is brand spanking new. We’ve done our best to buy the things for it that we would like to see on our vacations: in fact, we’re planning to spend as much time here as possible when others aren't enjoying the house in the Hawaiian sunshine. Waikoloa Colony Villas is a private gated community of luxury townhomes on the South Kohala Coast within the world-renowned Waikoloa Beach Resort. One thing you notice on the Kohala Coast driving here is that the landscape is dry grass and lava. It almost never rains here! Of course if you miss the rain, travel over the Saddle toward Mauna Kea and you’re almost bound to be inundated. But you will also see wonderful waterfalls, lush rainforest and really big tropical plants (imagine the ones you buy for little pots in your living room, only 30 feet tall).

New carpet installed June 2015.

Airy, spacious, and comfortable: The villa is airy and spacious, a 2 story townhouse with 17 feet vaulted ceilings, decorated in a sort-of Hawaiian contemporary style we’ve been making up as we go along. There are two bedrooms: the master has a king, the 2nd with 2 twin beds that can be converted to a king plus a queen-size sofa bed, so we can sleep 6 with ease.

Equipped for food, drink, and grilling by the pool: The villa has a terrific, well-equipped gourmet kitchen, complete with all the equipment you’re likely to need on a vacation: a massive modern fridge, smooth top oven, dishwasher, microwave, toaster oven, coffee machine, coffee grinder, blender, and kettle. The kitchen has granite countertops, a granite bar with stools, and plenty of glasses and other cocktail-related equipment that can make a great party for a group of young or young at heart adults or hidden from the kids as necessary. Barbecues are provided poolside and roadside a few feet away. The kitchen is right next to an elegant hardwood dining table, or if you prefer, a full size table out on the lanai where you can watch the traffic on the 15th fairway go by.

Eating affordably: We’ve also provided a spice rack as well as a Hawaiian gourmet cookbook for you to try your hand at local dishes. Talking of which, the Island Gourmet Grocery Store down in the nearby Queen’s Marketplace has a great collection of local sauces and other ingredients to help you with this. A good selection of produce at reasonable prices can be found in the Waikoloa Village Market in the Waikoloa village a few miles up the hill from the beach resort. You will find fresh ingredients at the Kona Farmers’ Market year-round in Kailua-Kona on Saturdays and Sundays. Your stay in luxury here need not also cost an arm and a leg!

Eating not-so-affordably: When you’re sick of cooking, the King’s Shops and Queen’s Marketplace down near the waterside have an excellent selection of restaurants to suit all budgets, great upscale Sushi at Sansei, casual, tasty, and local at the Merriman’s Market Café, fine dining at Roy’s Hawaiian Fusion, and the Macaroni Grill chain, to name but a few, as well as fast food such as Subway and Arby’s, and a pizza joint. The malls also have a variety of other stores to seek out fashion and island originals.

Stay as connected as you choose to... We know you aren’t coming to Hawai’i just to watch TV, but for when you want to sit back and relax after a hard day on the beach, snorkelling, or scaling volcanoes, the living room has a 47" LED Stereo TV with a Wi-Fi capable Blue-Ray player. Those of you who subscribe to Netflix can watch it here also, or perhaps follow the latest zaniness or viral videos on YouTube. So, clearly we also provide broadband Wi-Fi internet. And, talking of communications, phone calls are free anywhere in the USA or Canada.

Luxury master suite: The living room and both bedrooms have ceiling fans and air conditioning, and there is a washer and dryer inside the villa. Each bedroom also has comfy hotel-class mattresses. The upstairs bedroom is really a suite that occupies the whole floor, including a small lanai that looks out onto the golf course, 22" LED TV, a phone, and a large bathroom with two sinks and separate shower and bathtub. There’s also a walk in closet big enough for two or three people to stand up in at the same time. The downstairs bedroom can be set up with two separate adult-sized twin beds or as a king size bed. It has a large closet and a full bathroom is close by.

What else to do at the complex and beyond: Condo amenities include two pools, the closer one with a beautiful waterfall, a hot tub, fitness center, and tennis courts. Beautiful beaches are just minutes away. There’s a beach inside the resort, and the world famous Hapuna Beach is just 5 miles to the north. Check out the guide book we left around for all the other great activities , and the DVD we left behind to give you some ideas about the highlights (Volcanoes National Park, Waipio Falls, macadamia nut factories, coffee farms, the highlights of Kona, and the amazing sea life). Tune into channel 9 (Big Island TV) for what’s going on currently and more ways to escape. The Hilton at the resort offers great luaus and opportunities to swim with dolphins and in the utility closet you will find beach chairs, a beach umbrella, a cooler and sand toys to make any day a day at the beach. From the complex you can enjoy views of Mauna Kea (gleaming telescope domes, and well worth a tour), the Pacific Ocean, Kohala Mountains, golf courses, lava fields, and swaying palmtrees. It really is a piece of paradise and we hope you enjoy it.

It was a good quality place to stay--it was just right for us 4

  • 4 of 5

It was a good quality place to stay--it was just right for us 4. They had everything we needed, except need to provide kitchen hand towels. We've stayed in 2 different places in Waikoloa before which were really nice, though 3 bdrm units. This being 2 bdrm is of course smaller.

TV and media side was great - Netflix build in, easy to use. Had washer and dryer plus lots of beach chairs, cooler, lots of goggles, a 2-3 sets of fins, snorkels and one nice umbrella.

Suggested updates, changes and/or additions:

* The couch could be updated since it's getting close to looking and feeling (support) a tad worn.

* Garage locked - Allow people to use the garage. The other rentals all included it with all the outdoor equipment conveniently out there and not jammed into the condo.

* Kitchen towels

* Add 1 more umbrella since 2 would be better--4 of us were huddled under the one. Also, the screw bottom is broken and falls off. Might want to replace.

* Water purifier/Britta is broken - needs to be replaced.

* Area rugs in Living room would be a cozy addition and look nice too.

* Area rug or carpet in the 2nd bedroom downstairs would make a difference too. The room could use a little warming up and decorating. A carpet/rug would help a lot.

* Annoying that the windows were locked and could not open in the bedroom. I understand the need to control the AC which I think is already handled by your system shutting down A/C if any windows or doors are open. we're unable to open windows. Let people make the decision to open windows or use A/C. Seems to me too as a potential fire hazard if one needed to jump out from the upstairs mstr bdrm.

* No fan in the downstairs bathroom. There's a sliding window in the shower, but if you are able to open it, the A/C system shuts off for the whole house.

* Mstr bath - the fan is too loud and need to be fixed or replaced with quiet one. Need also separate switch of the fan and lights. There's 1 light switch that turns on all the lights--no way to be quiet in the night. It's either dark or light up for a night game and fan noise. It's a big mstr bathroom, add separate switches for vanity lights, ceiling lights and fan. It's a nice looking place but missing a few inexpensive touches that should be expected.

Last, the nightly rate was very reasonable. But we've noticed that here and all rentals there have $450-$600 is fees tacked on. I think owners are attracting with lower nightly rates, then add in the fees later.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I travel a fair amount and are used to finding most places lacking supplies, instructions for remotes, batteries, etc. This place had a fully stocked kitchen, remotes that worked, everything to make you feel right at home from the start. It has the perfect location to visit the beaches of Hawaii , go shopping or launch a tour of the island. The Villa neighborhood is quiet and beautifully landscaped.We even had the luxury of an adorable cat visiting us on the lanai. For groceries I would recommend the grocery stores in Wiamea or Waikaloa. Also in Wiamea there is a butcher shop that can't be beat. We will definitely be back to the Villa.

Great location, excellent value

  • 5 of 5

This townhouse is clean, nicely decorated, and very comfortable. Our contact, Daisy, is always quick to respond if we have questions. We are impressed with this unit and with the service. As a result, we have rebooked for next year. I would not hesitate in recommending this unit to anyone looking for very nicely decorated, comfortable townhouse, in a great location, and an excellent value.

Amazing vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

Everything we expected and more! We had an amazing vacation and are extremely sad to be leaving. The Villas and community here are amazing, everyone was so friendly and welcoming. The villa we stayed at was absolutely gorgeous, the photos really do not do justice! It was our perfect home away from home, we had everything we needed while we were there and the place is so warm and welcoming with beautiful decore. The location is close to everything, definitely rent a car when you go however there are local stores in the queens marketplace and a lovely itallian restaurant. Its close to beaches and other fun things, also the pool is beautiful and was always quiet so there is always a place to lay and relax (unlike other resorts where you fight for a chair). There is also a list of things to do while you're there.. we would recommend doing a helicopter ride to see the beautiful island. The place is perfect for visiting with families, friends or as a couple. We will definitely recommend to family and friends and hope to return as soon as we can!

Excellent rental, perfect home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We rented this unit for two weeks in July 2016 and LOVED IT! The home is beautifully decorated, very comfortable and welcoming. The owners have made it especially accommodating for guests traveling from the mainland, considering all the "home away from home" necessities one might need but not wish to pack (beach towels, sand chairs, coolers, extra linens). And guests will find many extras not usually found in most rentals (coffee grinder, spices, kitchen gadgets, grilling utensils, docking stations, books/games, a Wii, Netflix, and great WiFi!). The unit was clean and very well maintained with comfortable beds (including the sofa bed), new furniture, and a warm and welcoming decor. We loved the location of the unit within the Waikoloa Resort. The A' Bay beach on the resort property was gorgeous and so peaceful, rarely crowded. Great for snorkeling or wading in the shallow surf. There were ocean activities available, with reasonable kayak and paddleboard rentals, as well as snorkeling gear rentals. Beach chairs were free to use on a first come basis and the Lava Lava Beach Club was just a few steps away, with friendly service, good food, and delicious mai tais! The pool nearby was very nice, and since each cluster of units has its own private pool, there were rarely more than two families at the pool at any given time. The Island Market, shops, and restaurants at the resort had everything we needed. We also loved the condo's easy access to Route 19. We did a lot of traveling around the island! Dream Properties Rental Company was very helpful with any questions we may have had prior to our arrival and while on our vacation. We will definitely return to this condo! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. Thank you to the owners for making this a fantastic vacation rental.
