Luxury lives here ...
Kohala Ranch is a 4,000 acre gated ranch on the famed Kohala 'Gold' Coast running west to east from the ocean to a 3,000' elevation and encompassing three very different climate zones
- the Heathers (app. 200'-800'elevation)- warm, sunny, and dry
- the Meadows (app. 900'-1,800' elevation) - cooler, more rain, more windy
- the Summit (app. 1,700' - 3,000' elevation)- colder, most rain, strongest winds
Laughing Gecko Lodge is perfectly located in the most desirable Heathers at 750' and offers the ideal climate if your idea of a Hawaiian vacation includes sunny skies, hot dry days and clear, comfortable starry nights. The weather in the Heathers is a predictable 80 degrees and sunny year round. Annual rainfall is app. 7 inches. (Travel tip - check the location of your rental because at times some Ranch locations can seem more like temperate Europe than tropical Hawaii!)
Tucked at the top of a quiet cul-de-sac on 3.5 acres in a premiere location, Laughing Gecko Lodge is the perfect place for vacations, corporate retreats, small celebrations, or simply getting away from it all. The vistas from the main living areas and lanais feature open ranch land, coastline, ocean and mountains, offering complete privacy. And the views? Spectacular!
The location is quiet, without the traffic noise of homes closer to the highway, and offers exceptional views of the Kohala & Kona coastlines, ocean and all Big Island mountains. Guests often say photos can't capture the incredible views and do the property justice. Enjoy the tranquility of the home to relax, and if you are looking for excitement or activities they are all just minutes away. The ocean is about a mile from the house and Big Island's best beaches, world class golfing, resorts, premiere shopping and dining, theater and entertainment are approximately 5 - 10 minutes by car.
This 4 bedroom home is flexible, accommodating two to eight people in individual suites. The floor-plan offers excellent separation of space between the bedrooms allowing privacy and the ability to welcome smaller or larger groups. The home is only rented to one guest party at a time so, even if you are a couple looking for a quiet getaway and only renting the main house, the entire property is still all yours. The home is designed as follows.
1.) The main house offers 1,700 sf of tropical living and has a great-room with gourmet kitchen & pantry, dining and living areas and a large master suite (bed & bath I), half bath, lanai & pool.
2.) The upper guest suite is on the same level as the main house and consists of a master suite (bed & bath II).
Both the main house and upper guest suite overlook the pool and spectacular ocean and mountain views.
3.) The lower guest suites are a flight lower and there are two large bedrooms (bedrooms III & IV) with a pass-through bathroom, private lanai, mini-kitchen and outstanding ocean and mountain views.
The home may be rented dependent on the size of your group and the rate varies accordingly. Our goal is to exceed your expectations and offer true value so you can enjoy your hard earned vacation.
If you are a couple looking for a romantic getaway set apart from the hustle and bustle of resort locations consider renting the main house. The resorts are just moments away and all amenities are available to you without paying the resort price tag. Inviting another couple along? Rent the main house and upper guest suite. Bringing the whole family? Rent the whole house. This is a single home and only one booking is reserved at a time irrespective of size. You will never share with anyone else.
Please note, occupancy of the home is limited to the the rental group only and the home is not intended for use as an event space for reunions, weddings, group entertaining, parties, etc..
All sections of the home are designer furnished and exquisitely equipped and all necessary items are provided including luxury linens, toiletries, condiments, laundry supplies, beach chairs & toys, books, DVDs, and peace & quiet. The tranquility of the property is just moments away from all the recreation and fun you could want. There are multiple seating areas on the huge lanai, a 40ft pool, outdoor dining table for 10 and a commercial gas BBQ. Even with a full house there is enough space for everyone to find a place of their own.
Laughing Gecko Lodge is a well located gorgeous home where you can relax, explore, and enjoy a memorable stay. The times we spend in places like this offer a lifetime of memories and we want yours to be extra special. We are on-island and available at a moments notice to assist you if needed. However, we respect your privacy and will be invisible if not needed. With any home rental ongoing maintenance of pool and yard may necessitate service providers being on property during your stay. We do our best to ensure all appliances are in working order but should a system fail and repair be needed during your stay such service providers may need access.
Many of our guests love Laughing Gecko Lodge so much they come again and several have confessed it is the best vacation rental they have ever stayed in.
