How to Get There
Waikoloa is very nice and Kolea as a development has some nice amenities (such as the proximity to A Bay), but unfortunately I can’t provide a positive review to this home due to a major insect problem. The property manager was responsive and attempted to resolve the issue (sent out an exterminator on more than one occasion) – but it was never completely solved. The mosquitoes are very, very bad at this home and make the patio almost unusable. After the first day, my family was covered with bites. We eventually noticed that other ground floor tenants in our building did not utilize their patios – so perhaps the problem is not this particular unit but the building or area in general. I have stayed at other Waikoloa properties and never noticed any mosquitoes. But at Kolea 7D, it’s a constant. You can load up with deet, but that’s only a short term solution. If you rent this unit (or maybe on the ground floor in Kolea), you should avoid the patio as much as possible and keep the sliding doors closed. We also had to deal with a centipede attack a whole mess of cockroaches.
There were some smaller issues, such as the air conditioning (worked well in master bedroom and living room/kitchen, not so well in other bedrooms) and hot water (not working in master shower) – but these were only minor inconveniences. The main thing is the insects. When we moved into the unit, we cleaned up several dead insects that were in hard to clean spaces (corners, behind furniture, etc.). But the live ones kept coming. Ultimately, my spouse became disgusted by the cockroaches and we moved out five days earlier than scheduled.
This is the only condo complex on the entire island with beach access, so it's special right away. It's so nice not to have to get into the car to visit the beach.
Unite 13D is 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and is on the ground floor, opening up to a huge, green grass area. Perfect for kids to run around while parents enjoy a mai tai on the large lanai. The lanai felt very private, so we were very comfortable hanging out there, and we loved the huge, built-in bbq. Cooking a few meals at home saved us a ton of money and was fun to just be able to enjoy sunsets from home.
The unit was a 2-minute walk to the pool area, so really close without any noise. The pool area has a kiddie pool with a sandy "beach" and a nice, large pool, plus a hot tub, outdoor showers, seating areas, and a gym.
13D allowed us to use their garage, which was nice to keep our car cool. The unit gave us access to its closet full of boogie boards, snorkel gear, beach chairs/umbrellas, coolers, etc. It was so nice to not have to buy or rent any of that gear!
The unit was very clean and had beautiful, Tommy Bahama furniture. The kitchen was very well equipped and had everything we needed. The onsite management was excellent.
We would return here in a heartbeat and are already planning our return trip.
This is our second time coming here as a family (2 adults 2 kids) and we enjoyed it just as much as he first. The rooms are very comfortable and large with good cooking equipment and space. It has aircon which is much needed in the heat! The pool + spa is lovely and we spent majority of our time here. We took a day trip to Waipio Valley lookout which had a wonderful view although quite a long drive. Snorkel trip to Kealakekua was amazing, the visibility was so clear and so many fish to look at - definitely recommend. Makaiwa Bay is only a short drive and is lovely - and can access through fishponds and short walk through lava fields which is interesting but can be very hot.
