Overview

Waikoloa Village Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Laughing Gecko is a delightfully tropical 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom designer furnished top floor, end unit located on a secluded bluff overlooking stunning ocean, mountain and golf course views. (Traveler tip - many rentals display photos of beaches and ocean views but don't have either. (Check carefully for accuracy of photography.)

This special unit was the developer’s model and, as such, placed in the best location in the complex. One of only four units with double lanais; one off the living room and one off the master suite, Laughing Gecko is a cut above the rest. The condo is set well apart in a small building with only 4 upper units; quiet and private with the best views. Ample parking and sunrise & sunset views of all 5 mountains; Hualalai, Mauna Loa, Mauna Kea, Kohala, Haleakala, ocean and Maui sets this lovely condo apart from others in the complex.

Sitting right on the Waikoloa Robert Trent Jones Jr. course 11th hole, 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-low green fees that make it a superb value and guests receive a discount.

The master bedroom lanai opens onto incredible sunrise mountain views and sweeping vistas of the plains below the mountains. The guest bedroom has views of Kohala mountain over the golf course. The living room lanai faces rolling green views of the golf course framed by Kohala mountain, blue ocean and Maui.

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 and guest bedroom both have queen sized beds. All have luxury high thread count linens. Both bathrooms are spacious and have tubs with showers and additional closet / storage space.

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.

There are two rental options for this unit. Rent one bedroom and bathroom if you are a single person or couple, or rent two bedrooms and bathrooms if you are three or four people. VRBO quotes are for two people using one suite. For up to four people using both suites please ask for a quote.

Dual careers in real estate and design have traveled with her and continue on Big Island, Hawaii where Ali, an independent Real Estate Broker, specializes 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.

Bookings purchased this condo in 2005

Why Bookings chose Waikoloa Village

In searching for a condo as a vacation rental my criteria included a superb location, outstanding ocean and mountain views, golf course frontage, established and landscaped common areas, privacy and quiet - all at an affordable price. 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, two couples or a family of four this is a delightfully affordable gorgeous getaway.

What makes this condo unique

The complex is located right on the golf course and just opposite the golf course club house, pool, tennis courts and restaurant. As a top floor end unit set apart on a bluff from the rest of the complex the condo is private and quiet. This developer model unit is one of only four that has double lanais with exceptional views of all five mountains, the ocean and Maui. It's a very sweet spot within easy walking distance of shopping and dining and a quick ten minutes to the beach by car.

Another wonderful stay at Laughing Gecko Fairway

  • 5 of 5
This is the second time I have stayed at one of Ali's Laughing Gecko condos. This is a great location if you are looking for something central to explore Kona, Waimea, Hawi and Kahala. I personally stay here when I have conferences to attend at one of the Waikoloa resorts as it a far more affordable option than the resorts and I love the "homey" feel after a day in a conference room! But, it's also a great affordable option in general for any stay -- if you don't mind being a little ways from the beach. It is approx an easy 15 minute drive to the resorts and beach at Waikoloa and maybe 20 minutes to the beautiful Hapuna beaches. Ali has exquisite taste and her condos are gorgeous.

A quiet place to stay in Waikola

  • 3 of 5
This condo is right on a golf course in Waikola Village, a community 30-minue from KOA. It is tasteful decorated. There are deferred maintenance issues such as torn screens and squeaky hinges. We saw small cock roaches in the kitchen every day during our stay. This may be a fact of life in tropical area. However, we think it can be better controlled.

Owner's Response: Aloha Starry,
Thank you for your kind words about the condo décor and location. The master suite was just redone with new paint, drapes & blinds, linens, lamps, furnishings, etc.
I want to assure you we never have had the small roaches you mentioned in this unit, especially as it is 2nd floor. I believe they hatched out of some leis the guests who stayed before you left on the kitchen counter. This has been taken care of, as have the torn screens.
All is in good order and I'm glad you liked the unit and enjoyed your stay. The very reasonable price is such a great deal for four guests to spend the weekend. I don't know of anywhere else where you can stay in such nice accommodations for just the average price of lunch per person.
Kind regards,
ali

Clean, classy, comfortable

  • 5 of 5
It was great to be away from the crowds, hustle and bustle of Kailua-Kona, but still close enough to get there easily and close to many great beaches. We enjoyed watching the turkeys on the golf course and the wonderful views; breezes kept it refreshingly cool and helped dry our wet snorkeling clothes.
Overall it was roomy, clean, tastefully decorated (IMO) and provided everything we needed at a fabulous price.
Mahalo, Ali!

Owner's Response: I'm so glad you had a good visit and stay. I hope you saw the Nene also. Thank you for your kind words. It is a great deal and a lovely location. We did yesterday complete the upgrade of the pool and spa in this complex so that looks lovely also. ali

Shooting stars, so convenient, comfortable, well-appointed!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I enjoyed 5 fabulous days in this spacious, nicely decorated and furnished unit. We had acess to both bedrooms, since we had a visiting couple one evening, and it was great to have separate space; cozy bed linens,comfy beds, and two bathrooms! Owner directions for access were complete and the gated community was quiet and secure. We arrived after dark and were awed by the starry sky in the clear, pure air. We saw two shoorting stars while gazing at Mauna Kea within minutes of our arrival. The views from the two lanais are incredible. The kitchen was well-appointed, so we lacked nothing for cooking and eating in; also has a washer-dryer for keeping clothes clean. Waikoloa is centrally located, making easy sightseeing and beach-going days. We visited Puako (sea turtles), Lapakahi State Park (awesome snorkeling and a whale!), Hawi - Polulu, Waipio, Mauna Kea Observatory, and Hapuna Beach. The nearby shopping center has everything you need. Highly recommended.

Our group consisted of two couples traveling together, and this condo suited us very well. It's as nice as it looks in the photos - with even a few more creature comforts & amenities. It was clean, well-maintained, obviously cared-for, and well-appointed (lots of towels, kitchen gadgets, etc.) Everyone got good nights' sleep on the comfy beds, too. Also, it was particularly nice having two full bathrooms. Though our group did not take advantage of all the complex has to offer (golf, tennis, pool), the condo's location was great for our daily trips to area beaches for some of the best snorkeling anywhere. The village has a nice assortment of shops - including a well-stocked grocery store - and places to eat... And every local we met was friendly. Thanks for a great stay.

Owner's Response: Aloha, and thank you for your kind words. I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay. I love this unit too because of the ocean views and the location. How do you capture the view in a photograph? You are right, Big Island has the best snorkeling, and the Kohala Coast is the best on Big island!
