Waikoloa Village condo description

Laughing Gecko Golf is a delightfully tropical 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom designer furnished ground floor, end unit located on a secluded seasonal waterway overlooking the Waikoloa golf course with beautiful mountain and golf course views.

This special unit is placed in a quiet location at the rear of the complex away from the street and parking areas. The condo has a lovely private lawned area in front with shady trees, birds and gentle views. Laughing Gecko is a cut above the rest; quiet and private with lovely views.

Sitting right on the Waikoloa Robert Trent Jones Jr. course, 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 with 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 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 has a queen sized bed and luxury high thread count linens. The bathroom is spacious and has a shower with tub.

This condo is designer furnished and decorated. It's beautifully appointed; affordable luxury. (Traveler tip - not all rentals are well furnished. Check carefully.)

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.

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 she works as a real estate Broker & designer specializing 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 or purchase.

                  Why the Owner Chose Waikoloa Village:
                  In searching for a condo as a vacation rental my criteria included a superb location, 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 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 ground floor end unit set away from the street and parking areas the condo is private and quiet. Fronting the golf course with a private lawn in front the condo is a lovely place to relax. It's a very sweet spot within easy walking distance of shopping and dining and a quick five minutes to the beach by car.
