Kohala Coast Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Call for our Introductory Special Pricing!

New! Luxury 2BR, 2 BA ground floor villa with sophisticated tropical décor and direct beach access!

Kolea, located just 30 minutes north of Kona-Kailua at Waikoloa Beach Resort between the Hilton Waikoloa Hotel and the Marriott Waikoloa Beach Hotel, is the most luxurious condo community on the Big Island -- and the only development with direct beach access.

The condo is just a two minute walk to Anaeho'omalu Bay, where water sports await you: snorkeling, sailing, windsurfing, kite boarding, glass bottom boat tours, sunset cruises, and of course swimming! A-Bay is a great beach for family fun, with warm sand and gentle waves in a sheltered location that has its own volley ball court and work out equipment for the energetic. For those seeking relaxation, watch a sea turtle take a nap in the sand as the sun sets.

The infinity pool, children's pool with sandy beach and waterfall, and lava hot tub tub are all you need to relax. Walk to Queens Shops for pizza and ice cream or to Kings shops for a latte!

More adventurous? Want to ride the waves? Take a short 10 minute drive up the road to Hapuna Beach State Park and enjoy the best beach on the island. Boogie boards, beach chairs and coolers are on us! All you need is sun screen!

Got a little more time? Take the gang on a drive around the island! Or experience the true diversity of this island -- which in one day may take you to as many distinct climates as you'd experience in a dozen countries! Drive 'upcountry' 30 minutes to Waimea and go horseback riding at Parker Ranch -- 230,000 acres of amazing open space! Then cut over Highway 250 on the north end for Hawi's 'wild west' small town feel and meander through artist studios in search of home-made ice cream, Kona coffee, and shaved ice. Another day, head east to see Hilo's awesome Akaka Falls, rainforest, and botanical gardens! Go stargazing on Mauna Kea -- nearly 14,000 feet above sea level (and the tallest mountain in the world, if you measure from the ocean floor!)

Have an extra day or two? You can not miss the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park! If you can swing it, stay a night down at the Volcano House Lodge overlooking the crater! The place is so awesome that you really cannot cover it in a day if you want to go for hikes in the park. Stop at one of the black sand beaches on the way home. There is even a hidden green sand beach if you are really adventurous!

You will be just a one-block walk from fine dining (Italian, Japanese, Chinese, Steak, Seafood, Pizza, Noodles, etc.) and a gourmet market that makes great lunches for day trips. The King's Shops and the Queen's Shops each have free entertainment and family activities, such as ukulele contests and hula lesson. There are even rock concerts -- the Beach Boys were just there this month!

Want bikes? Just ask us. How about golf clubs? We can help! Bike trails and golf courses surround you at Kolea!.

What a deal! What a vacation! Take your family or friends or both! You will have a great time!

Best Vacation Ever

  • 5 of 5

This property was amazing. I can recommend this place without hesitation. I look forward to visiting again in the future

The house is stocked with everything that you will need to have a great vacation. The owner has made sure to pay attention to every detail. The place is one of the cleanest properties that we have ever rented. I usually struggle to get a good nights rest when I am away from home, but the mattresses at this home was better then the one I have at home.

We also spent time at the Hilton Resort and prefer this property over the Hilton

All of the beach toys located in the storage locker were an added bonus. There were several body boards, beach chairs, toy for playing in the sand, and much more.

The owner of the property was a great communicator and easy to get in contact with and very responsive to our needs.

You will love this place!

Fabulous home base on the Big Island

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with our two teenagers in Kolea condo 16G for 5 days, and wish we had allowed another week. The condo is as advertised: luxurious, with just about all the amenities of home, and a fantastic grill on the ground floor patio. The Kolea complex is peaceful and quiet, with a beautiful pool and hot tub at the private beach club. Through the beach club one can directly access historic Hawaiian fish ponds and the northern end of A-bay, which usually has sea turtles and residence. A walk south along the beach will take you past the Marriott and Hilton resorts, with associated amenities and clubs. The far south end of A-Bay has decent snorkeling and one can hike across the lava field to some beautiful fresh water pools adjacent the beach. The weather in the Kohala resort area was perfect even when it was raining or Voggy in other areas of the island. We made a long day trip to the waterfalls and volcanoes on the Hilo side of the island, and caught the stars on Mauna Kea on our way back. Mauna Kea beach, a short drive to the north of the condo was also a highlight of our visit. Thank you, Robert & crew for making our stay so comfortable. We hope to be back soon, and would definitely recommend this condominium to family and friends.

Great location for all activities and the condo itself is where you want to come "home" to.

  • 5 of 5

We would like to go back and have the same condo again.

Whether it's beach, swimming pool, exercise equipment, shopping, restaurants, sightseeing... Everything is conveniently close by and upper class. My husband and his brother love to spend time at the lanai where birds come in-and-out in the nice manicure landscape when we are home at the condo. The kitchen is very well stocked with all high end cookware and very nice open design which made my brother in law commented he would like to renovate his kitchen...

Bedrooms are really comfortable with nice tropical furniture and TVs, which made a relax and fulfill feeling after a day of adventure.

Owner's Response: Hi Sharon! Thank you so much for your positive review! I am so glad you had a nice time and really appreciate you selecting us for your accommodations. I am going to give you a free night if you can come back and stay with us.. I bet you left feeling there were a lot of new things you wanted to explore? That's how I always feel and I have been going there for 25 years! Its an awesome island and I love the location of Kolea right on the beach and close walking distance to the shopping at the Kings Shops and the Queen's Market. I look forward to your next stay! Aloha, Robert

Excellent Accomodations & Service

  • 5 of 5

First: Robert was flexible and responsive to every message I sent him. The property is located near the front gate so it's easy to walk to the shops and Lava Lave Beach Club, but it's not too far from the pool, short and pleasant walk. The Condo itself is decorated nicely, has lots of useful kitchen supplies like garbage bags, food storage containers, pots, pans, etc. Most everything you need for a long stay if you are cooking there. The garage storage unit is well stocked, 4 boogie boards when we were there, multiple buckets and shovels for sand castles, some basic snorkel gear that has seen better days but works all the same, really nice Tommy Bahama chairs and umbrella. There are 15 pound dumb bells if you need to get a little work out in. We had a couple of issues, first was internet and Robert and the local support of Wendee was excellent, they fixed it in a day no problem. We had both propane tanks go out and then the grill needed a burner replacement (just from age, nothing bad) and it was also fixed in a day, very quickly. Anything that was of issue Robert and Wendee jumped on and corrected in a day or less. So their services was top notch, what you would expect for the price you pay. We had friends staying in other units and by far, ours was on the nicer side of the units and little touches like the garbage bags mentioned in the kitchen, extra toilet paper and paper towels, even the bathing soaps which we didn't use, all very well done and lacking in some of our friends condos. Our deposit was refunded timely, just as promised. Overall the stay was great, somehow, Wendee figured out we had friends on the grounds and that they were coming over to eat on the lanai on random nights and delivered more lanai chairs to us without us even having to ask. The pool is also nice, not as big as say a Kings Land at the Hiltons but they are reasonable, unlike the pool at the Halii Kai where they don't let kids have fun in the pool (Halii Kai probably comes up if you look). They also don't have a restaurant at the pool or a happy hour, but what is the next best thing? You can bring whatever you want food or drink of your own, just no glass, totally reasonable and works really well. The beach access right out to A-Bay or to walk over to Lava Lava Beach Club is also very nice. Can't wait to stay again, already planning.

Beautiful Property

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at this condo. It was well appointed and spacious. Everything looked as good as the pictures. Kitchen was well stocked. We made good use of the beach equipment (the storage was also well stocked with beach gear). Being on the ground floor was also a plus as it made it convenient.

Robert was great to work with. He always responded to our emails and even gave us good advice about things to do on the island..

Check-in and check out was a breeze.

Kolea is a very nice upscale community, very well maintained with beautiful landscaping. We also made good use of the wonderful clubhouse and the pools.

Definitely recommend this A+ unit..

Great Condo, location and amenities

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 had a wonderful stay! The grounds and pool inside the gated Kolea community were beautiful. The condo had a very well stocked kitchen with all necessary appliances, the furnishings were tasteful, clean and well taken care of. Robert even had a garage full of beach gear for us to use: Tommy Bahama beach chairs, umbrella, sand toys and even a cooler. There were plenty of beach towels too. Loved the location nestled between the Marriott and the Hilton and the short walking distance to both the King's and Queen's shops for groceries, snacks, restaurants and shopping. We saw turtles while snorkelling right off the beach. Easy drive from the condo to beaches and activities. We would definitely rent again!
