"5 stars, for sure! This condo was perfect for us so many ways.
First of all, it's location in Kolea was great. It was a short walk to the pool/ocean which was key. If you wanted to go back for lunch, no problem. If you forgot something in the unit, no problem. It probably took three minutes to get there from the pool. And, being that it was a top level, corner unit, it was also very quiet and also had a partial ocean view. I loved being able to check out the ocean each morning to see what the surf was doing!
In addition, the unit itself is just plain NICE! The finishes, appliances, decor...was all top-of-the line and very well kept. The bedrooms and bathrooms were large and there was plenty of room for clothes storage, etc.
They also had everything you might think you need - beach towels, hair dryer, storage containers, portable coffee/cocktail containers, Ziplocs, a washer and dryer...the list goes on. You will feel right at home!
The wifi worked perfect and parking was easy as well. Having a designated spot assured no trouble finding spot and it was close to the building entrance. Plus, there was room for guests.
In my opinion, cooking dinner in was just as fun as going out! Having a great grill on the lanai, lanai view and comfortable seating provided memorable nights for both of us.
I would stay here again in a heartbeat. In fact, I wish I had stayed longer and hated to leave! And, I honestly wouldn't stay anywhere else in Waikoloa. Kolea offers the best beach access and wonderful amenities. Although, if you are a gym freak, one thing to note about their gym - their open air gym only has 4 cardio machines. If you want to lift weights, you can purchase a $10 day pass (if you show your Kolea beach access card) to the Hilton's gym which you can walk/run to along the ocean! So, really, no big deal, but just thought I would add that.
I had great interaction with the owners. They are extremely responsive and helpful.
I would most definitely rent this unit again. And, it's only worth of 5 stars (in my opinion!)!
Thanks so much, Kim, for an amazing stay."
