                  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 Garden Sanctuary because it is one of the all-round best lots and locations in the 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:
                  As a Hawaii resident living and working on the Big Island I wanted to find an elegant and private home in a convenient central location. This property fits the bill. Waikoloa Village is a good central location with easy access to the resorts and beaches, Waimea, Kona and Hilo. The property location within the Village is superb. Located on a quiet cul-de-sac with attractive neighboring homes, the property is within easy walking distance of all shops, services, golf course, swimming pool, tennis courts and grocery store. Because the home sits on a double lot the property has large beautiful gardens and generous separation of space from neighbors. I love to garden and enjoy growing my own organic fruits, vegetables and herbs.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  As this ohana is located on the property of a private home with large gardens the setting is private, peaceful and 'far from the maddening crowd' yet convenient to everything you need. The price is unbeatable. It truly is exceptional luxury at a most affordable price. The ohana would best suit a single person or couple looking for a quiet getaway to retreat to after enjoying the best of recreation and dining the Kohala Coast and upcountry Waimea has to offer.
