Relax or tour from this highly rated home. Enjoy the best of Hawaii. our Executive 2 Bed/2 bath Penthouse unit is highly rated. COMPLETELY REDECORATED AND PROFESSIONALLY DESIGNED HAWAIIAN GETAWAY-DESIGNED WITH THOUGHT, FLAIR AND CARE-- see VIDEO LINK below

Gorgeous penthouse condo in the private exclusive beachfront resort of Kolea with beautiful mountain and peek-a-boo ocean and lagoon view from the deck, master bedroom and living room.

Our 2 /2 bath unit is almost new, has many upgrades, and is beautifully decorated. Now with a king in the master and in Bedroom 2 a choice of two twins which can be joined together to make a second king. Kitchen is fully fitted and equipped. Flat screen TVs in LR and both bedrooms. Internet with wireless. Original art helps complete the quality of the living quarters. We have great reviews for how clean the unit is kept. Washer and dryer too!

Push back the disappearing African mahogany sliding doors onto the lanai--and enjoy a BBQ using the Viking outdoor kitchen--with the scent of plumerias drifting through the air in the ocean breeze. This is Hawaii at its best! Uniquely for a 2 bedroom in Kolea both a dining table and 2 loungers are provided.

Our location is terrific--a short walk (200 yards approx.)to the private Beach Club that sits 50 yards off the beach at Anaeho�omalu Bay (shared with the Marriott next door). We provide beach towels, cooler and umbrella as well as a number of beach toys for children and adults.

The Club has a beautiful pool, a kiddy pool complete with waterfalls, a pebble-bottom spa that looks over the beach and bay, a work-out room with great views of the ocean, a kitchen facility you can use, fresh towels for your use, etc.

A short walk in the other direction gets you to shopping and dining at the Kings Shops, and just beyond are the new Queen's Shops. You'll never need to get in your car while on your vacation if you'd like to stay put and relax--it's all there, it's all new, and it's all right next to the warm Pacific Ocean--the reason we go to Hawaii!

(Kolea is the only residential resort within Waikaloa that has direct BEACH ACCESS--and 'A' Bay has lots of turtles and is a protected by a reef.)

If you're new to the Big Island, Kolea is in the larger community of Waikaloa Beach Resort, just 25 minutes from the Kona International Airport. It has great golf, shopping, dining, etc., and it's minutes from other beautiful beaches and activities along the Kohala Coast. We provide beach chairs, umbrella, mats, cooler, towels and some beach toys for the days you can drag yourself out of Kolea.

Along with top notch local management you can be assured you will have a great vacation

this is our 6th trip to hawaii and 3rd time to the big Island so you can see this is our vacation spot. When we leave we say that we are not coming back for a long time and then we start looking immeditely for our next place to dstay. Have to say that now WE HAVE FOUND IT! This place is beautifully furnisjhed and the amenities eceLLENT! We usually end up buying somethingf for the beach or renting it, This tear WE WANTED FOR NOTHING. The small touches throughout made us acatually want to spend nights in grilling on the lanai and watching the awesome sunsets . mahalo to you both (and wendee also) for allowing us to share your special home. we hope to comne again

We stayed for two weeks in late July and although it was El Nino and the hottest trip to Hawaii that we have experienced, we really enjoyed this condo. It was WONDERFUL! Everything you need to have a relaxing time. Working with Wendee was great, seamless, and because it was hot, we had to use the AC and the elevator a bit more than usual and glad we had both. These owners have thought of everything, and the "penthouse" was extremely quiet and had those gorgeous views for sunrises and sunsets. The kitchen was stocked with the essentials to get started, and we so appreciated this. Also, the beautiful decor, the well-stocked kitchen and the awesome master bath is truly what you see in the photos. Even though it was hot and humid we spent a lot of time on the lanai. Sliding those doors back in the morning when it was cool made the coffee taste better (even being Kona Coffee!) and the table and chairs were wonderful. In the later evening after being at A Bay or Mauna Kea beach, using the chaise lounges to relax with a glass of wine and then cook steaks on your own grill was a treat. (Our last place literally had a line at the grill :-( so having the summer kitchen was really worth it!). For the first time ever, we DID spend quite a few nights in the condo. And everything you would want for the beach is there, including a cooler. We have bought many chairs and coolers on our six trips to Hawaii. This was the first year we didn't have to!!!! I also want to say that this is convenient to the beach, pool, and you can walk to the Shops if you want. We also went to the Tropics Ale House (great mai tais!) and Lava Lava Club, Quinn's, Don the Beachcomber and Orchid Thai in Kona. We also tried Monstera for the first time, and it was awesome (a must if you like sushi). Thank you to the owners for sharing this beautiful condo! So, I would like to recommend this place to others, but I really want to keep it a secret so we can get our dates for next year!

Crista thank you so much for the great review and so pleased you will enjoy your stay. I will let Wendee know as well For legal reasons we tend to downplay the views but they are indeed lovely and open( as many units are not). And yes we got so fed up on our travels of not having or missing stuff that we do try to provide everything you need to be able to USE our home and not feel the need to have to go out every night FYI. Monstera is one of our favorites too Hope to see you back in the future Mahalo Alan

This is the second time my husband and I stayed at this unit in Kolea. I always rent apartments on vacation and frankly most have worn out furniture, kitchen accessories and are generally "tired." This is one is like vacationing in a model home that was just opened for the first time. It has every possible kitchen gadget, comfortable furniture and the location can't be beat. I can't recommend this place enough...and I agree with the other reviewer that the pictures don't begin to do justice to the apartment or the location. It is so much better...and that rarely happens.

This was our first stay at Kolea and we have stayed in many condos along the Kohala Coast and this one was the nicest we have ever stayed at. The pictures do not do the villa justice. A few things that a renter may want to know, the pictures do not do the view justice. At Kolea there are many units that face other units in the complex and have no view to speak of, this unit is on the second floor and faces the beach and hotel pool next door. The view is quite amazing and even though there is a photo in this listing it really is much better in person. The covered parking is close by and if you have visitors there is ample additional parking. The complex is very well run and picture perfect. The beach club was nice and not crowded, we were able to get a cabana or sit next to the pool each time we went. Access to the beach is great as well, there is also a gate that is a very short walk to the hotel property next door that is great if you want to get a meal or pay to use their pool. We did use the resort pool next door once, they give you a room for the day and it cost $99.00 for the entire family. This unit is very well equipped, clean and decorated nicely. The bedding is top of the line and the beds themselves are very comfortable. The air conditioning works ice cold, although we had it turned off often and just opened the pocket doors and enjoyed the cool weather. There are ample towels, beach supplies and kitchen items. The management company is great and responds to any issues in a timely manner. We loved this unit so much that we extended our stay two days. Our only disappointment is that the unit was booked in March for spring break and we will have to stay somewhere else. Thank you again for a great time and great unit.

Hi Reed, Reed, thank you so much for taking the time to review and your very generous comments that I have also forwarded to Wendee who keeps it all going in our absence. I am pleased you had such a great stay and very sorry we are booked for your other dates. You are right about the view, it is a very peaceful view that we love. So hope to see you back soon.

We had an awesome time in your home enjoying many meals on the lanai admiring the view. Although leaving very rested we would have liked to stay longer., it's not to hard to take.
