Waikoloa Village condo description

Laughing Gecko is a delightfully tropical 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom designer furnished top floor, end unit located on a secluded bluff overlooking stunning ocean, mountain and golf course views. (Traveler tip - many rentals display photos of beaches and ocean views but don't have either. Check carefully for accuracy of photography.)

This special unit was the developer’s model and, as such, placed in the best location in the complex. One of only four units with double lanais; one off the living room and one off the master suite, Laughing Gecko is a cut above the rest. The condo is set well apart in a small building with only 4 upper units; quiet and private with the best views. Ample parking and sunrise & sunset views of all 5 mountains; Hualalai, Mauna Loa, Mauna Kea, Kohala, Haleakala, ocean and Maui sets this lovely condo apart from others in the complex.

Sitting right on the Waikoloa Robert Trent Jones Jr. course 11th hole, it’s the perfect spot to base yourself for a great Big Island vacation. The Waikoloa Village course is a favorite of local golfers, who consider it one of West Hawaii's best-kept secrets-low green fees that make it a superb value. Guests at this condo pay as little as $50 a round with cart (discounted fee)!

The master bedroom lanai opens onto incredible sunrise mountain views and sweeping vistas of the plains below the mountains. The guest bedroom has views of Kohala mountain over the golf course. The living room lanai faces rolling green views of the golf course framed by Kohala mountain, blue ocean and Maui.

The condo has a fully equipped kitchen with dishwasher and microwave, washer and dryer, and everything you need to make your vacation enjoyable. The master suite and guest bedroom both have queen sized beds. All have luxury high thread count linens. Both bathrooms are spacious and have tubs with showers and additional closet / storage space.

The complex is right opposite the golf course club house, Banjy’s restaurant, pool and tennis courts. The recreation area features a large pool, spa, BBQ area, and well equipped workout room; the only complex in Waikoloa that has a gym. Everything you need is right there and it's just a short stroll to the shops. A very good grocery store is a short walk away, along with banking, medical, post office, etc.. The Resorts and world class beaches are just 5 - 10 minutes away by car.

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. The condo complex is gated and wrapped on three sides by the golf course.

There are two rental options for this unit. Rent one bedroom and bathroom if you are a single person or couple, or rent two bedrooms and bathrooms if you are three or four people.

In home massage therapist, maid service, private hiking guide, professional photographer, gourmet pastries available. Ask owner for details.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2005

                  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 Ali specializes in Kohala Coast property. A lifelong real estate investor, Ali knows a good property when she sees one and bought Laughing Gecko because it is one of the all-round best view condos and locations in Waikoloa Village. 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 landscaped common areas, privacy and quiet. A tall order indeed but I found the perfect unit in the perfect place, that met all my criteria, and then some! For a couple, two couples or a family of four this is a delightfully affordable luxury getaway.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                  The complex is located right on the golf course and just opposite the golf course club house, pool, tennis courts and restaurant. As a top floor end unit set apart on a bluff from the rest of the complex the condo is private and quiet. This developer model unit is one of only four that has double lanais with exceptional views of all five mountains, the ocean and Maui. It's a very sweet spot within easy walking distance of shopping and dining and a quick five minutes to the beach by car.
