Beautiful, relaxing, quiet accomodations
When we booked this facility, we wanted something new (built in 2003) and quiet for a relaxing vacation. It's located in the Kohala area, down the street from the Hilton and Marriott. It was quiet and has gated access, which you will receive when you check in. The decor of the condos made it feel like you were at home.
Our unit was off the golf course and if you stepped outside you could usually see Maui in the distance. It was centrally located and had easy access to Hawi (45-50" away) and Kona (25" away). The beaches are beautiful, but the condos also had 2 beautiful pools which seldom had a lot of people. One of the pools has a separate "kiddie" pool that was shallow. Both pools were lined with tile and gorgeous.
Word of warning - Do not eat at the Japanese restaurant in King's Court. Absolutely awful. We have better sushi in Oklahoma! The California rolls were made with imitation crab!
I believe Aston has two condo residences in the Kohola area. I never saw the Shores but the Aston Colony Villas were gorgeous, definitely worth the price.
We stayed here for five days in January and were extremely happy with it. Our 2BR condo was huge. It is obviously a very new development and all the fittings were of an excellent quality. The bathroom for the master bedroom was as big as our child's bedroom at home. All the furnishings were beautiful. We had a lanai and a balcony overlooking the swimming pool. With the morning sun coming in it was delightful to have breakfast whilst reading on the balcony.
The swimming pool area was excellent with a nice little waterfall at one end and a couple of BBQ's available for use.
I agree with the last reviewer in terms of maid service. One day they didn't turn up and on the other days they didn't replace the towels in the bathroom, they were still lying on the floor, or make up the beds properly. As we hadn't even been expecting a daily service this didn't fuss us but you would probably be a bit miffed if you were expecting daily servicing.
We were happy with the location and its accessibility. One thing I hadn't realised from all the reviews I had read is that the resort is completely surrounded by old lava flows. We were somewhat disconcerted as we drove up to Waikoloa wondering what on earth we would get, but once you are inside the resort it doesn't matter.
One tip to possibly keep in mind is that you can buy a day pass ($80 for family of 4) to the Hilton and use all the outside facilities there. Our children had been keen to stay there but we were not prepared to pay the price. This way, we had tons of room in the condo and the kids got to spend one full day at the Hilton and try out all the various pools, see the dolphins, feed the turtles etc.
Wonderful Condos and area
We returned on Jan 20 from 10 days at Aston Waikoloa Colony Villas. I believe there is another Aston community in Waikoloa, so don't confuse them.
We stayed in a 3BR/2.5 bath condo. I think it is about 2100 sq ft (#505). The decor was BEAUTIFUL. The area was gorgeous. The facilities we well kept, clean and the office staff was courteous, helpful and friendly. There are 2 pools, one w/area for kids the other more adults and both fantastic. The entire complex was quiet and accessible to many areas. There was an earlier complaint from someone about it being far from Kona. I found it was only about 25 miles and that's nothing when you're from TX (ha, ha). The Hilton and Marriott are right down the street, but I loved the more home-like feel of the Villas.
I felt very centrally located. It was an easy drive to Waimea and Hawi. There are loads of beaches around, in fact the "A-Bay" is basically around the corner from the villas...beautiful w/Palm trees everywhere on the beach area if you don't want full sun.
We did buy food to fix breakfast on some mornings and the kitchen was large w/granite counter tops. There was an Open House at one of the 2BR/2 Ba units on the property while we were there, but our unit was so much nicer (decor), that I felt it did not compare (even though they were similar in layout and some decor features...tile in MBa and granite).
The only negative would be the "maid" service. My sister slept on the pull out sofa, but when the maids made the bed, they never pushed the bed back in place. The maids only seemed to replace towels and incompletely make up the beds (MBR decorative pillows and shams were never put back on the beds, remained stacked ont he floor when beds were made). This was a minor complaint that did not make me downgrade the facility...but if you are picky about that sort of thing, you might want to mention it in the office if it happens.
I would highly recommend the Colony Villas to anyone who wants a centrally-located, beautiful and peaceful facility on the western side of the Big Island. Even though there are beaches, don't forget to visit the gorgeous pools.
The place to stay in Waikoloa
This was our best stay on a vacation ever. The area is quiet, close to two very nice hotels (Hilton and Marriott) and when you want to be in the mainstream and traffic its only a 20 minute drive on a nice scenic highway through a lava bed , or 10 minutes from one of the best beaches on the island. Would recommend to anyone if you want total relaxation on your vacation.
Great for families
We rented a unit here direct from an owner and got a great deal ($130 a night) because they had some odd dates to fill pre-Thanksgiving. But their normal rates are a bargain, as far as I'm concerned. Our condo (unit 601) was beautifully appointed and had every possible thing you would need. The development is in a good location for quick drives to any of the wonderful Kohala beaches and just a mile from the Hilton, which is a destination in itself. It is a very quiet, peaceful place and if you play golf (we don't), you'll be in heaven as you're smack dab in the middle of a beautiful course. The pools are very nice and kid-friendly (we have a 3 year old). All in all, a good value in the middle of the very pricey Kohala region.
These are beautiful units with first class furnishings. There are two pools on-site, one with a lava rock waterfall. Though a mile from the ocean, the views of the volcanos are breathtaking. A-Bay, just 1.4 miles away, is a dreamy palm fringed beach. The Colonys are located within the Waikoloa Beach Resort, a resort community containing some of the best restaurants, shops, golf and other activities. My little boy participated in Dolphin Quest at the Hilton down the street and absolutely loved it. As "The Big Island", as it is called really is pretty big, this is actually a great central location to be. By the way, there are many property management companies besides Aston representing these units so check around when pricing one out.
Enjoyed our stay at Colony Villas
We stayed at a 3 bedroom unit at the Waikoloa Colony Villas the first week of August. It is very spacious and airy. Our unit is just a few steps from the pool. We see Maui while having breakfast at the lanai. We were the first ones to use the unit so all the appliances were brand new. The one drawback is it's too far from Kona, a 45-minute drive.
Great Family Stay
We wanted a large, newer condo for our family of five. We found the perfect place at Colony Villas. Large 2 bed, 2.5 bath with beautiful furnishings, right on the golf course. Location was close enough to everything, but quiet and with wonderful views. Cant wait to come back!
Colony Villas were great!
We were looking for a large townhome or condo on a golf course and found an outstanding one. It is the Waikoloa Colony Villas managed by Aston Properties. We had 6 adults and stayed in the 3 bdrm unit. It was so spacious and was right on the 15th fairway of the Waikoloa Beach Course. This "villa" had beautiful tropical furnishings and awesome views. We were in walking or short drive distance to the beach, shops and restaurants. We also played the King's Course which is adjacent to this property. Both courses were challenging and fun, and had spectacular scenery and the ocean. Great vacation!!
Loved the Waikoloa Colony Villas
The Waikoloa Colony Villas are located on the 15th Fairway of the Waikoloa Beach Golf Course on the Kohala Coast of the Big Island of Hawaii. It is a beautiful new development within the Waikoloa Beach Resort. We stayed in a spacious 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath townhome with lots of windows and light. The furnishings were tropical and quite comfortable. The kitchen was well appointed and the views from every room were great. We could sit out on the lanai and watch the golfers, and sunrises and sunsets. There is a lovely swimming pool and jacuzi area with grills and a second pool area is being built. Tennis courts will be done soon. We also had access to the King's Golf Course and the golf was outstanding. We loved everything about this property which is managed by Aston.

... their spirit journeys and their lucid dreams. Where everyone might be a little stoned, but more at peace with the world than I've ever been. But you know what? We loved it. We loved being there. The place was filled with such wonderful, positive energy. We had the BEST acai bowls that Everlete handmade while we were talking. We got 16oz glasses of Kombucha and Jun and shared stories and laughed and connected. Our phones charged in a corner and we never touched them. We ...

Before we knew it, it was our last full day on Big Island. We spent it enjoying the sun on our balcony (mostly laughing at a Saffron Finch who was trying to mate with his reflection in our car mirror!), leisurely packing and spending time with Riaan, Lisa and Riaan’s lovely mum, Cathy, who may we ...

... the program. For roughly $18,000, I could get the use of a one-bedroom condo for one week every two years or a studio every year plus pay $1300 per year in expenses. They said it was a way to upgrade your accommodations. It probably would be a very good deal if you typically spent over $200 per night on hotels.
