Waikoloa Village house description

Laughing Gecko Francolin Place is a gorgeous tropical coastal style custom home in Waikoloa Village. A great family getaway - private and roomy, but close to everything. The prefect spot, centrally located, to base yourself for exploring all that Big Island has to offer. Francolin Place is a small cul-de-sac that fronts the Robert Trent Jones Jr, signature Village golf course, and is just a few minutes walk from the shops. The homes in this small area that fronts the golf course benefit from mature landscaping, big trees and privacy.
This home is comfortable, app. 1800sf living space, with open-plan rooms that have vaulted ceilings, sky lights, and plenty of space for everyone. A large shaded lanai faces onto the front garden and has plenty of room for relaxing, dining or enjoying that morning cup of coffee.
There are 3 large bedrooms and two bathrooms.
The master suite has a king sized bed and en-suite bath with dual sinks and walk-in shower. There are big dual walk-in dressing rooms, TV, lounge chair and lanai accessed by sliding glass doors.
The second bedroom has a queen bed, TV and shared bath. The third bedroom is big and has two full/double beds.
The great room has a big sitting area with comfortable seating, a big dining table, a huge kitchen with island and ample counter space, walk-in pantry, and laundry room.
There is a big 2 car garage for shaded and secure parking and ample additional space to store golf clubs, surf boards or bikes for triathletes and sportsmen.
The home comes fully equipped with everything you need for a great Big Island Hawaii vacation. Linens and towels are quality Turkish or Egyptian cotton. The kitchen is fully stocked with all the cooking and dining supplies needed for family, at home dining. Beach gear is also provided.
While this home is perfect for families, it works just as well for singles or couples. If you are one or two people who want to get away from the resorts and condo complexes and enjoy a private place to stay for your Hawaii vacation, this home would be ideal.
The location is superb, just a few minutes walk from the golf, shops and restaurants of Waikoloa Village and just a few minutes drive to the resorts and Big Island's best beaches. The central location makes it a great home base for exploring.
So, whether it's a family vacation or quiet getaway and your group is big or small, consider this lovely home as your home away from home for your Hawaiian vacation.

                  About: Ali Blackmore Realtor Principal Broker, Kohala Property Real Estate Sales, Management and Leasing, manages this property under the Laughing Gecko Hawaii suite of vacation rentals for Silicon Valley based professionals who realized their dream of owning their own vacation spot on the Big Island.
