Waikoloa Beach Resort Condo Ratings

Over the years of running a vacation rental business in the Waikoloa Beach Resort I have come across numerous web sites that rank the vacation rental complexes at Waikoloa Beach Resort.  The thing that seems to amaze me is that most of the companies aren’t even located in Hawaii so I have a hard time understanding why they feel they would be able to correctly rate the properties.

Here are my rankings taking into account what I think along with what guests have mentioned to me over the years.

Kolea
Kolea is by far the most luxurious complex at Waikoloa Beach Resort.  The average selling price of a villa there is almost double that of any other complex at Waikoloa Beach Resort, which supports the fact that they are very nice and in an excellent location.

Pros- Only beachfront vacation rental complex; Spacious lanais with grills; Luxurious interior finishes; Solid construction; Easy access to all the Waikoloa Beach Resort amenities
Cons- Small pool

Halii Kai
Halii Kai is in a middle class of its own.  It is nicer than the other complexes at Waikoloa Beach Resort, but falls short of Kolea. The Halii Kai Ocean Club is the most attractive feature of Halii Kai.  The Ocean Club is on a bluff overlooking the ocean and features a multi-layer heated resort style pool, restaurant, and fitness hale.

Pros- Halii Kai Ocean Club; Spectacular views from the buildings towards the front of the property; Tennis court
Cons- Small Interiors; average construction; distant from the amenities at Waikoloa Beach Resort.

The rest of the vacation rentals all fall within the same class of properties.  Although they they are close in value, there are some that are a little more desireable than others.
