Along the Kohala Coast there is a spectacular resort like no other. Waikoloa Beach Resort is more than a couple of hotels. It’s a whole community. Boasting two shopping centers (Queens’ Market Place and Kings’ Shops), various restaurants, two challenging golf courses (Robert Trent Jones and Jr. Beach Course), two hotels (Hilton and Marriott), and breathtaking grounds and vistas, Waikoloa Beach Resort is a massive refuge for visitors and locals alike. You’ll also find galleries, boutiques, spas, an interactive dolphin program, and the ancient Kings’ Trail.
Oh, did I mention people live here? There are many residents at the resort who live in condos and homes. Everything they need from groceries to dry cleaning to live entertainment is within walking distance. Plus there are a variety of other activities a short drive away like snorkeling, kayaking, and surfing.
Within the Waikoloa Beach Resort is a private gated community called Kolea Condo Villas. At the moment we have a 2 bedroom/ 2 bath penthouse at Kolea Condo Villas 9J. This unit has high ceilings, African mahogany trim, and nine foot retractable pocket doors. The kitchen includes upscale appliances and there is a skylight over the master bath. You’ll enjoy the sunset every day of the year from the lanai and it’s only a short stroll to the Beach Club at Kolea and Anaeho’omalu Bay.
In the same private community, at Kolea Condo Villas 9E, we have a tastefully decorated second-floor villa. This 2 bedroom/ 2 bath condo has travertine floors throughout the living areas and electronically controlled shades to block the afternoon sun. The kitchen includes granite countertops, African mahogany cabinets, and top-of-the-line appliances. You can sit on the balcony and feel the ocean breeze coming in off the bay or use the built in barbeque to grill some Ahi tuna. A private path leads directly to a white sand beach
Nearby, at Puako Beach Lots (non-gated community inside the Waikoloa Beach Resort), we have a lovely beach house at 141 Puako Beach Drive #2. This 1 bedroom/ 2 bath charming home is only a few feet from the ocean. Imagine waking up every morning to the crashing of ocean waves and while you sip that first cup of coffee you take in views of Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa. This relaxing hideaway is perfect for getting away from it all, while still being close to many high-end resort amenities. Still. if you spend an hour sitting on the lanai, you’ll never want to leave the house.
