LAUGHING GECKO FRANCOLIN - SPECIAL $99/N 2PP. CLOSE TO BEACHES, SHOPS, DINE

Waikoloa Village House Rental Photos and Description

Large 3/2 home sleeps up to 8 close to shops and beaches

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.

Guestbook comments from the manager
"Our family loved our stay in Mei's spacious, beautifully decorated home which offered lots of room for everyone to spread out and relax. Morning and evening times on the lanai were relaxing and also fun for us to watch both the geckos scrurry around and entertain visits from the wild turkeys. Our visits to the local beaches were made more enjoyable as Mei provided beach chairs, beach towels, and a cooler for us to use to take lunches and drinks. The home was also conveniently close to the shopping center where we could buy groceries, rent snorkel equipment, and dine. We would definitely recommend this home to others."

EVEN A FIVE STAR HOTEL COULD NOT OFFER SO MUCH!

  • 5 of 5
Beautifully decorated. Extremely well organized and convenient. Every need you may have during your stay has been anticipated. It is impressive, even a little bit magic. So I am sure the property manager is a great professional. I got her a few time on the phone and email and she was fast, efficient, and very nice. The owner also is very friendly.
The space was more than enough for us. And I loved the high ceiling. The volume of the room felt great. And price wise, that was a great deal for two couples sharing the cost...
The location make it a perfect base to explore the whole island, while staying close to the best beaches.
Also, if you go there in February or March, you are on the right part of the island for whale watching. We saw them everyday from the beaches and lost count.
Looking back, I can not imagine a better choice for our accommodation.

Owner's Response: Aloha, and thank you for your kind words. I'm so glad you had a wonderful stay. It really is a lovely home isn't it? I have always loved this home and I'm so happy I was instrumental in acquiring it for the owners and managing it for them and making people, such as yourselves, have great vacations. Best wishes, ali

PERFECT HAWAIIAN VACATION

  • 4 of 5
My husband and I were celebrating retirement and our 40th Anniversary, and this was a very comfortable and relaxing retreat. The location was perfect, very convenient to golf and beaches. It was very clean. There were lots of critters, but fortunately, they stayed outside! The large kitchen and gas BBQ made it seem even more like home. When comparing it to other VRBO properties that we have stayed in, it was very comfortable, but could use a few more beach supplies, like an umbrella, and a few more guide books for identifying the multitude of birds that visit the bird bath, as well as maps and ideas of things to do. These are small things, over all it was wonderful and I am still dreaming about our 2 weeks there!

Owner's Response: Congratulations on your retirement and anniversary. I'm glad you had a great visit. There should have been an umbrella. I will put in a replacement. Guide books are a super idea. I will add a couple. Glad to hear the critters stayed where they belong. The home has regular pest control service so they stay outside. Aloha, ali

SATISFIED RENTER

This is a Gem, the house was as advertised and then some. The house was clean, the beds were comfortable, a wonderful patio area, the kitchen is to cool. And the location, on the golf course is just perfect and we felt safe. We really enjoyed our stay.
The owners went out of their way to make sure our stay comfortable.
Five stars for sure.
