Selecting a Kolea Rental

Tuesday, August 28th, 2012

We know how much time and energy can go into planning a trip so far from home. Kolea is a spectacular property that has a wide range of options in price, villa size, view, and location. No matter what your preference, there is a villa or home perfect for your needs just inside the front gates of Kolea at Waikoloa Beach Resort.

Each and every villa at Kolea offers top of the line construction, African mahogany cabinetry and trim throughout, stainless steel appliances, pocket lanai doors, granite countertops, private lanai with outdoor Viking grills, and much more. The Beach Club is available to all guests of Kolea including the infinity pool, natural lava rock Jacuzzi, workout hale, sand bottom children’s pool with waterfall, shaded cabanas, and more. With direct beach access to A’Bay, Kolea sets the standard for luxury at the Waikoloa Beach Resort.

The information below should offer some assistance with reserving and securing the very best accommodations on the Big Island of Hawaii at the Waikoloa Beach Resort.

Price: How Much Do You Want To Spend?

Though there are different price points available, each and every villa option will certainly satisfy your need for luxury and convenience.

The two bedroom, two bath villas along with the three bedroom, two bath villas offer the amenities of Kolea for less of a cost and on a smaller scale. These options are available in buildings 9, 11, and 14-16. The cost reduction is due to slightly less square footage and view differential. In some cases, they are set back just a bit further than the other buildings but only add a few moments’ walk to the beach and pool. The two bedroom villas can comfortably sleep four guests, possibly more while the three bedroom, two bath options can easily sleep six. The Lanai is about half the size but offers the very same enhancements such as shelter from the elements, seating for four to six people, and an outdoor Viking kitchen.

If you would prefer something a bit larger, the three bedroom villas will not disappoint. Some visitors prefer to be on the ground floor with a grass area just off of the lanai while other visitors prefer the second or third floor. Typically, the second and third floor villas have a higher nightly rate than that of the first floor villas.

This additional cost is based on a few factors but in no way makes the ground floor any less of a great choice, especially if you prefer to have the ground level for additional space or children. The value of the experience and price point will make any vacation a special occasion.

The second and third floor villas do offer a slightly higher nightly rate but the cost is well worth it. These villas offer additional square footage, larger kitchen area, second master bedroom, larger bathroom space in addition to the height and private lanai.

How Much Room Do You Need?

Even the most modest two bedroom, two bath villa at Kolea offer plenty of space; just under 1,300 square feet. Villa size goes up from there throughout the property. The ground floor three bedroom, two bath accommodations offer over 1,550 square feet while the ground floor three bedroom, three bath villas offer over 1,700 square feet. The largest options are the three bedroom, three and a half bath second and third floor villas. These come in just under 2,150 square feet.

The larger three bedroom villas have a lanai twice the size than that of the smaller floor plans.

There are even private homes that can accommodate families up to 10 people.

How Important Is The View?

Many villas at Kolea offer stunning ocean views and that of the surrounding area. Though some of the ground floor accommodations have an ocean or partial ocean view, the second and third floors offer greater views of the surrounding area.

In many cases, the same floor plans will have views that differ from each other simply due to their location on the Kolea property. Many have direct ocean views while others are set back a bit, offering great views of the development, landscaping, and surrounding elevated mountain terrain.

Where Do You Want To Be At Kolea?

Typically many visitors prefer being closest to the beach club, located directly across from building 8 and 10. As shown in the map below, most visitors staying at Kolea travel past buildings 7-8, 10, 12-13, and 15-16 to reach their respective villas. A low speed limit, respectful guests, and overall design make noise less of an issue. That being said, some guests prefer virtually no car traffic if possible. If that is the case, buildings 1-6, 9, 11, and 14 would be great choices.

If you prefer to be closest to the Beach Club, buildings 7-12 offer the nearest locations.
