Waikoloa Village condo description

The sweetest condo on the Kohala Coast to escape to. Just perfect for one or two. Laughing Gecko Waikoloa is an end unit, ground floor gem that sits right on the 6th tee of the Robert Trent Jones course in Waikoloa Village. Enjoy discounted rates at the Waikoloa course if you stay here as well as access to the Village pool and tennis courts. Check the Waikoloa Village website for updated rate information.

Tucked away and private, sit on your lanai and enjoy sweeping views of miles of rolling green golf course in front of huge, panoramic ocean views, framed with all our mountains - Haleakala, Kohala, Mauna Kea, Mauna Loa and Hualalai. The unit enjoys dead on Maui sunset views, just perfect for relaxing and enjoying Mai Tais at sunset, or coffee in the morning.

The unit is designer decorated and furnished and well equipped with everything you'll need to enjoy your stay. A full kitchen is a pleasure for those who like to cook. Excellent restaurants are nearby for those who don't.

The complex is right opposite the golf course club house, pool and tennis courts. Everything you need is right there and it's a short stroll to the shops. A very good grocery store is just a walk away along with banking, medical, post office, etc.. The Resorts and world class beaches are only 5 - 10 minutes away by car. There are steps from the parking area to the lower level of the golf course.

Waikoloa Village is a planned community with underground electric, world class golf course and amenities conveniently located between Waimea, Kona and Hilo, just minutes from the best beaches. It is the perfect central location to base yourself for your Big Island vacation.

In home chef, massage therapist, maid service, private hiking guide, professional photographer, gourmet pastries and pre-arrival pantry stocking available. Ask owner for details.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2004

                  About the owner: Ali Blackmore is a Zimbabwean who has traveled the globe, living in eight different countries over four continents. Dual careers in real estate and design have traveled with her and continue on Big Island, Hawaii where she works as a real estate Broker and designer specializing in Kohala Coast property. A lifelong real estate investor, Ali knows a good property when she sees one and bought Laughing Gecko Waikoloa because it is one of the all-round best view condos and locations in Waikoloa Village. Ali is an accomplished designer, painter and writer and loves gardening and all things Hawaiian. If you are visiting Big Island to look at or buy property Ali would be delighted to assist you with your search and purchase.

                  Why the Owner Chose Waikoloa Village:
                  In searching for a condo as a vacation rental my criteria included a superb location, outstanding ocean and mountain views, golf course frontage, established and beautiful landscaped common areas, privacy and quiet. A tall order, for sure, but I found the perfect unit in the perfect location, that met all my criteria, and then some! For a single person or a couple this is a delightfully charming getaway.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                  This condo is located right on the golf course and just opposite the golf course club house, pool and tennis courts. As an end unit the condo is quiet and private. There is a small secluded garden out front with a teak bench just ideal for sitting out and enjoying the amazing views and watching the birds and golfers. I lived in this unit and loved every day. It is a very sweet spot, within easy walking distance of shopping and dining.
