Waikoloa Village Condo Rental Photos and Description

Laughing Gecko Greens is a delightful large studio condo set right on the Robert Trent Jones Jr. golf course in Waikoloa and sports one of the best ocean, coastal and mountain views in the Village. Sit and relax on your private lanai and look over miles of lush green golf course to spectacular sunset ocean views.

This condo comes fully equiped with everything you need for your stay. If you are looking for a sweet spot to base yourself for your Big Island adventure at an affordable price, you won't do better than this.

The complex is small and quiet, with the best views in Waikoloa. Right accross the street is the golf course club house, Village recreation center with pool and tennis courts, and Banji's Restaurant - a great 'happy hour' spot right on the greens.

It's just a 10 minute walk to the Highlands Shopping Center where you will find all the goods and services you need, and just a few miles to the Kohala Coast's best beaches and resorts.

Whether you are an eco tourist, thrill seaker, golfer, water baby, gourmand, or just want to chill out, this is an ideal spot; and you can't beat the price.

Bookings purchased this condo in 2012

This unit is located in the Waikoloa Village Condominiums complex, the first built in Waikoloa Village. As such, it is in the best location with the best view, and generouse common areas. A small complex of just 38 units, it is arguably the best spot in the Village with unsurpassed views.

Affordability. Let's face it, if you are going to be out and about all day, why spend a bundle on a place to sleep? But, of course when you do come 'home' to relax, why not have a delightfully charming place to stay with a jaw dropping view?

Nice enough unit although small, So good for a shorter stay. Somewhat dated furniture and building but a great view and location. Had all we needed and in good shape when we arrived. Close to groceries and the Kohala resorts for shopping, golf, beaches and restaurants. we would stay again for a short stay.

Hidden gem!

This condo is a hidden gem among the VRBO options for this area of the big island. The condo is tucked into the ground floor of the unit, which results in the sense of a lush, garden oasis surrounded by green plants and tropical bird of paradise plants which the geckos love to hang out on, drinking the nectar. I got several fantastic close ups of those colorful creatures. And it's entertaining to watch them chase each other off of each other's turf.

The unit is compact but everything you need is there. Lovely retro-60's-style kitchen but very functional, fantastic queen bed that was equally firm, no sags, and is important to me because of back problems. Loved the big closet, and dresser, in-unit laundry. Loved all the track lighting and lighting options, could go from low level moody to full on blazing light! Loved having leisurely breakfasts and dinners on the lanai, watching either the morning slowly begin, or the sunset slip down into a blaze of orange and reds. Lovely location on the golf course, nary a noise from either tenants above or beside, or from golfers on the green.

Parking spot nice and close, swimming pool and tennis courts literally across the street, great grocery store as well as a sweet little outdoor cafe that also serves breakfast and lunch nearby (2 min drive, or 10 min walk). A cable channel guide would have been helpful to cut down on channel surfing, but perhaps I missed it in the info book provided?

Overall, an excellent value for a tasteful, well appointed unit. Short drives to beaches well worth the trade off of having peace and quiet from the tourist masses at beachside hotels. Also, a convenient base for exploring the island. Looking forward to booking this condo again on my next trip!

We stayed at this condo for 6 days near the end of March 2013. For the price and location this condo is a real deal. The description and pictures are accurate and the condo was clean when we arrived. If you like to golf the location is excellent as you literally just walk across the street to the club house. After 2:00 p.m. it is only $50.00 (including cart) and we could get in 18 holes. The grocery store is a few minutes away and is very good with an excellent selection of fish among other things. It is only a 10 minute drive to the beach and the condo comes with beach towels, mats, 2 beach chairs and a cooler. My only suggestion would be for there to be a light on outside the lanai for late arrivals as it is very dark and even with a cell phone to illuminate, difficult to read the numbers on the lock box. We also left at night and found it tricky to negotiate. The kitchen is very well equipped as we made all our meals there, and the only thing missing was a blender but that only affected our drink menu. Overall I would recommend this condo to others.

Owner's Response: Thank you. Access to the golf course is pretty amazing, isn't it? Good point about the blender! We will have one supplied asap. What is a lanai and a sunset without a Mai Tai in Hawaii? Well, and then there are all those tropical fruit smoothies....
We have had big surf on the west side the last couple of days and the whales seem to like it because they are suddenly popping up everywhere! Aloha, ali
