I came with some friends to attend a wedding, and everyone's reaction to the property was "WOW, what doesn't this place have?!" Pack light because Carole's property provides every kitchen appliance and beach necessity you could need. She even left us a wonderful gift basket with coffee and treats for our stay. We didn't spend much time at the condo itself because, hey it's Hawaii. But any time we were there, we were VERY comfortable. We also had practically the same access to the nearby Marriott that any of their guests would have, so that's another plus. I could probably think of 50 more positive things to say, so I'll stop myself here. As for anything negative, I would say the single beds are small for adults, but still comfortable...and we knew the size from the property description beforehand anyway. There were also roach baits/traps, but seeing as we didn't see any actual roaches, I'd say it was no problem. We had such a good time for the wedding week, and this great property made a wonderful and affordable anchor point for our stay. Thanks Carole!

We recently spent a week at Kolea 15d for a family vacation. There was six of us total (kids from 2 - 20) and we had an outstanding time. The location and facilities are outstanding. The pool and beach are both walking distance which was a key criteria for us so it would be easy to bring the the 2 yr old back to nap. The pool area is terrific especially the sandy bottom kid pool with waterfall. The condo is very clean with great amenities. Our favorite was the sliding back wall and viking grill. We will definitely be back.

We Were in Hawaii for my daughters wedding, a large group of us decided to try and stay in the same complex. 15d was our condo. Our stay was great, booking was easy, the price was reasonable and our condo was perfect. It was stocked with a many items we needed for our stay. the quality of the furnishings were high end compared to the other units. We would stay again, and highly recomend you stay in 15d.

Our Kolea 15D unit was perfect for our family of 5. Spacious, modern amenities, comfortable and a great location with fabulous grounds. The beach chairs were a big plus as well. My only recomendation would be to add a few non-stick pans in the pantry.

Carol was wonderful to deal with, a big help. The property was absolutely beautiful The only disappointment was the temperature of the pool. It was absolutely freezing, even in 80+ weather you could only stay in it for about a minute. Again, we loved it and will be coming back to Kolea next year.

We just returned from 8 nights at Kolea 15D. What a great unit! We traveled with our 3 children (ages 8, 6 and 1) as well as my parents. This place was perfect. The kids enjoyed playing on the grassy area in front of the unit. The bedrooms were perfectly-placed so each couple had their own space. We loved having the pocket door to the lanai to extend the living area, as well as our own gas BBQ. No more walking to the community grill to cook dinner! As for the beach club, we really enjoyed the pool and spa. E to E was easy to work with and the welcome gift of coffee, chocolates and mac nuts was much appreciated. I would highly recommend this property and would return in the future.

We thoroughly enjoyed the condo with 2 adults & 1 teen. Everything we needed for the beach was provided - towels, chairs, cooler, etc. The bed was very comfortable. The kitchen and baths were large and well appointed. Everthing worked as planned. Accessing the key in the lockbox was simple. The location is perfect for accessing beaches up and down the Kohala coast. This unit has lovely view of garden - better than other units. King's Shops & Queen's Marketplace were convenient. Carole was very easy to work with. Only one suggestion would be to have the cleaners run the bath mats through the washer as they seemed less than 'fresh'.

My wife and I and our two young kids (2 yrs and 7 months) had a great experience at Kolea and with Carole. We hope to return to Kolea and would highly recommend Carole and this location to anyone looking for a quiet getaway in well-stocked, clean accommodations. We felt very much at home and loved the pools and short walk to the beautiful bay and beach.

This unit was lovely, very clean and comfortable! We enjoyed the beautiful surroundings and the easy walk to the pools, beach, and shopping centers.

We absolutely loved our week at Kolea! The condo was so perfect for our family of 5. It is gorgeous inside and out, was well equipped with everything we needed, plus extras like boogie boards and beach chairs. It was so nice to have plenty of room in which to relax, a kitchen to cook in, and a pool and beach to walk to. We definitely could have stayed longer and plan to return, specifically to 15D! Thank you!!

The four of us found this condo exceeded expectations. The owners have taken great care with their property, the decor was beautiful. The condo was well stocked with many essentials. One of our favorite touches was the big basket of beach towels by the front door and with the in-suite washer/dryer we were always ready for a trip to the beach. Carole was a great help and always quick to answer any e-mails. All in all a wonderful experience which we hope to duplicate again next year.

This was a beautifully appointed condo, with great art work and Hawaiian memorabilia and comfortable furniture. I grew up in Hilo and I really appreciated the warmth and Hawaiiana throughout the condo. The beds were great and the kitchen well appointed and user friendly. I LOVED the lanai, with the invisible doors, as they brought the outdoors in. The location was great, with a big lawn in front and a beautiful view of the grounds in bloom. This is the best location in Waikoloa... a beautiful pool, close to the beach, and close to shopping and great walks. I am now planning on coming back every year.
The biggest drawback of a ground level condo is that they are quite dark and you need to turn on the lights during the day...unless you are on an end unit. The plus is that you have a yard in front, which extends your eye to the grounds.These condos are great if you have little ones. I had a fabulous, relaxing week, and frankly, I didn't go out much during the day as it really felt like home and I was truly able to just settle in and enhoy the great weather.

Kolea 15D was an amazing home-base for our vacation in Feb 2012! The unit was spacious, clean, well-decorated, and perfectly situated with lots of activities nearby. The management agent was extremely professional and helpful. We picked the ground floor unit since we have 3 small children, and it was a perfect place for them to run around the lawn outside our lanai. The pool is super-nice and the kids pool was perfect, too. A short walk to the beach and the shops at Queens Market, too, was a fun diversion. We also thought Waikoloa was a great place from which to explore Kona and some of the amazing Kohala beaches. I would go back in a heartbeat!

The condo location was a short walk to the property pool and beach. At first we thought it was a bit far and prefer being right on the water. After a day, we realized how wonderful it is to come back to a large clean condo with a huge grassy area for our kids to run around on. We were able to cook and the condo was a short walk to the Kings and Queens shops for restaurants and shopping. If you have young kids, I highly recommend the ground floor. Carol was very accommodating and we preferred her condo to the Hilton where we transferred after our 5 night stay at the condo.

Loved your unit 15D! It was overall perfect! The location was excellent, loved the ground floor convenience, especially the lanai. The kitchen was fully stocked with all the tools one could possibly need. We picked up some great vegetables at the farmers market in Kona, and enjoyed several great meals in. Location to the beach and shopping was super. We really enjoyed the use of the beach umbrella, cooler, towels, and chairs...made for extra fun times at the beach. Thanks so much! We hope to stay here again soon!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Kolea 15D. The unit was well furnished, the complex was beautiful and the club house was quiet and relaxing. We chose it for it's location close to the Marriott, where our friends were getting married, and we couldn't have had it any better! Less than 5 min walk to the hotel, shopping, and beach. Highly recommended.

The condo was exactly as advertised. Perfect for our family of four. I was concerned that the walk to the pool and the beach and the shops would be far but I was so wrong. It was only 2-5 minutes to the pool/beach and a 5-10 minute walk to the shops. So close to everything. Kolea is the closest condo complex to ABay Beach. The amenities in the condo is top notch and has everything you need. Including: boogie boards for the kids, cooler, beach mats, plenty of beach towels !! (Even the art work in the condo inspired us to purchase a couple of pieces in the local shops - Alex Gupton). I highly recommend 15d. Carol made the reservation process smooth and seamless. Thank you so much for making our vacation a memorable one. Mahalo !
