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.

                            It was great to be away from the crowds, hustle and bustle of Kailua-Kona, but still close enough to get there easily and close to many great beaches. We enjoyed watching the turkeys on the golf course and the wonderful views; breezes kept it refreshingly cool and helped dry our wet snorkeling clothes. Overall it was roomy, clean, tastefully decorated (IMO) and provided everything we needed at a fabulous price. Mahalo, Ali!

                            We had a WONDERFUL time! Your condo was lovely and decorated so nicely, and we walked on the golf course every day. The breeze really helped me adapt with the warm weather coming from Alaska! Loved the little baby turkeys too! And had quite a few laughs sitting on the lanai watching golfers curse and one even threw his club, HA!

                            My husband and I enjoyed 5 fabulous days in this spacious, nicely decorated and furnished unit. We had acess to both bedrooms, since we had a visiting couple one evening, and it was great to have separate space; cozy bed linens,comfy beds, and two bathrooms! Owner directions for access were complete and the gated community was quiet and secure. We arrived after dark and were awed by the starry sky in the clear, pure air. We saw two shoorting stars while gazing at Mauna Kea within minutes of our arrival. The views from the two lanais are incredible. The kitchen was well-appointed, so we lacked nothing for cooking and eating in; also has a washer-dryer for keeping clothes clean. Waikoloa is centrally located, making easy sightseeing and beach-going days. We visited Puako (sea turtles), Lapakahi State Park (awesome snorkeling and a whale!), Hawi - Polulu, Waipio, Mauna Kea Observatory, and Hapuna Beach. The nearby shopping center has everything you need. Highly recommended.

                            Recommended for: Adventure seekers, age 55+, romantic getaway, families with teenagers, sightseeing.

                            Owner response: Thank you for your kind words. This is such a great spot to be and it is wonderful you had such a good visit. Aloha, ali

                            Our group consisted of two couples traveling together, and this condo suited us very well. It's as nice as it looks in the photos - with even a few more creature comforts & amenities. It was clean, well-maintained, obviously cared-for, and well-appointed (lots of towels, kitchen gadgets, etc.) Everyone got good nights' sleep on the comfy beds, too. Also, it was particularly nice having two full bathrooms. Though our group did not take advantage of all the complex has to offer (golf, tennis, pool), the condo's location was great for our daily trips to area beaches for some of the best snorkeling anywhere. The village has a nice assortment of shops - including a well-stocked grocery store - and places to eat... And every local we met was friendly. Thanks for a great stay.

                            Owner response: Aloha, and thank you for your kind words. I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay. I love this unit too because of the ocean views and the location. How do you capture the view in a photograph? You are right, Big Island has the best snorkeling, and the Kohala Coast is the best on Big island! ali

                            Hi Ali, Just wanted you to know how much we enjoyed our stay on the Big Island. Thought the condos comfortable and well equipped, especially enjoyed views from N201 and certainly the price was right! We appreciated you having the housekeeper bring over the gate pass when we moved into I107 on Tuesday. Thank you for providing for an affordable Hawaii vacation! Lou

                            The condo was very comfortable and beautifully decorated…you have great taste! We really appreciated having so many towels for the bath and beach, the hairdryer, and enjoyed the comfy sofa, comfy beds and lovely linens. I also wanted to thank you for thinking of the high style of chair for the balcony..brilliant. Thank you for having beach chairs and a cooler available too. We also appreciated all the extra space in the bathrooms to store things.

                            Stayed here for a week and did not want to leave. Very quiet, private location. Gorgeous views over the golf course and up the entire kohala coast to Maui.. We watched the sun sink into the ocean every night. We will def. return.. great value and convenient location to every thing. So much cooler and than staying down at the beach. thank you for an incredible vaction...

                          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.
