Property description

Laughing Gecko Garden is a private guest suite (ohana) located in Waikoloa Village close to the Highlands Shopping Center, Golf Course and swimming pool. The ohana is part of a larger home and has it's own private entry, patio (lanai) and garden. The home is set on a double size lot and surrounded by tropical gardens. The ohana comprises a bedroom and bathroom suite with a roomy walk-in closet. On the shaded lanai are lounging chairs, small dining table & chairs, and an outdoor counter/bar area with a mini fridge, coffee maker and microwave.

The bedroom suite is furnished in a tropical style with a queen bed and flat screen TV/DVD, and opens onto the large shaded lanai. The bathroom is spacious and finished with travertine tile and hard woods.

Laughing Gecko Garden is the most affordable property in the Laughing Gecko group; just as stylish, and unbelievably good value.

Relax in your own private getaway in the heart of Waikoloa Village. Enjoy the peace and quiet but know you are just minutes away from world class golfing, beaches, resorts, shopping, restaurants and grocery store with deli. Enjoy discounted rates at the Village golf course as well as access to the Village swimming pool and tennis courts. Check the rates for the course at the Waikoloa Village web site.

Beach chairs, towels and cooler are provided. Boogie boards and snorkel gear can be rented in the Highlands Shopping Center.

The outdoor mini kitchen has a fridge, microwave and coffee maker. There is no sink or stove and no laundry. Only disposable crockery and cutlery are provided. This is for light (no cook) meals only such as continental breakfast, or salad. It's not suitable for cooking. Take-out hot and cold meals are available at the deli at the Waikoloa Village Market within walking distance. The lanai is shaded but not waterproof. If it rains, which is rare, sitting out on the lanai is not possible.

Laughing Gecko Garden is a great affordable place to stay for those who will be exploring most of the day and dining out. Think of it like a nice hotel room at about 1/5 the price. It's a comfortable place to return to to sleep. It's not a full service condo. We accept short stays. It's not suitable for longer stays. If you are looking for something fancy at a bargain price, this isn't it. This is an affordable, nice place to base yourself for a couple of days while you explore our beautiful island.

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 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 gardens and generous separation of space from neighbors.

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 for private accomodation. This is not a house share. 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.
