Space 736 sq. ft.
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 3 - 28 nights


About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible Bed(s), 1 Bath (Sleeps 2-4)

The casa de emdeko is a very special place. People who have come here in the past keep coming back, some every year for over twenty years. The owners and guests are very friendly and you can make lifelong friends here. Yet if you want a quiet romantic dinner this too is possible. The cabana serves coffee in the morning and in the evening is a great place to barbeque your dinner and watch the sunset and maybe even a green flash if you are lucky. There are two swimming pools on the property with one so close to the ocean it is salty sometimes from the waves coming over the wall. The private beach is a wonderful place to get a good tan or catch up on that nap (i mean book you wanted to read). The tide pool is a great place to see eels in the evening around sunset, over the years people have taught them there will be food. They like chicken bones the best. Yes, some of them have names 'fury' and 'rose' are the red ones (the color of red wine) but they only come around if you have fish to feed them. Bob will come up on the rocks if you throw the food in the right place. You can sometimes see the manta rays if the surf is mellow, over by the fire-lane on the north side.

Now about our unit. Only a few units can say that they have no stairs, ours is one. It is on the south-side, so you are in the shade on the lanai in the mornings. Back by the dolphin fountain, so you are away from the noise of the swimming pools and cabana when in the unit. We are also very very close to the laundry-room area. There is not a change machine or a place to buy soap, but the deli up front does have soap and change for customers.

We have free WiFi for our guests, encrypted so you are not sharing with anyone, or having to find one that is not encrypted, or you can direct connect if you like. The appliances in our unit are new, fridge, stove, dishwasher and disposer. We have been living there for the last two years so they are really nice. The phone has free long distance to the mainland.

Why Jolene and Jeff Hanline chose Kailua-Kona

We fell in love with the Casa the first time we stayed there and want to retire there.

What makes this condo unique

We live 1.2 miles from the Casa and can be there in less than 5 minutes if there is any problem. We lived in our unit for two years (not many owners have spent more than a month here and there in theirs), so we know it inside and out.

Perfect home base for the family

  • 5 of 5

My 2 boys and I stayed here for 5 nights and loved it! The property grounds are lovely and have everything you need to relax in the evening after a day of exploring. We would definitely come back!

Just Loved It!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent 2 glorious weeks in Hawaii at Casa De Emdeko. The property was everything we hoped and more. The condo was equipped with everything we needed and was clean and inviting. Jolene the owner was terrific and was always there for us from picking us up at the airport to helping with directions. The location was perfect for us. The grounds were beautifully landscaped with lush plants and flowers. We had 2 pools one of which was salt water overlooking the ocean. We rarely ate out as the property had 3 grills which we used regularly which gave us the opportunity to meet and chat with other people staying at the complex. We were looking for quiet and private and that is exactly what we go.

I am very glad I found Jolene and Casa De Emdeko and will recommend it anyone visiting the Big Island.

Pretty condo in a waterfront complex

  • 5 of 5

. . . in a terrific location! Near downtown Kailua-Kona yet walking distance to a couple of local beaches, and roughly midpoint between Two Step and Manini'owali Beach. It's a small complex with easy access to the units, and great to find a ground level place. We liked it so much, we were grateful to be able to come back to it after our five days in Volcano. Thanks, Janine!

Great Location & Excellent Description of Property

  • 5 of 5

My daughter stayed here for her graduation gift. Since she didn't have a car, the public transportation was very convenient to get around. They enjoyed the nearby beaches, town, food options, and the activities were easy to get to. They went snorkeling off the boat and rented jet skis. It was a short visit but they thoroughly enjoyed it. They were very comfortable in the Casa de Emdeko and it was everything listed in the description. The bed was comfortable and the kitchen and bathroom were a nice size. She even said that she wants to go back some day and would stay there again. I am even thinking of planning a trip for myself there because she liked it that much!

Always an Amazing Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This is my third time staying in this condo and each time is better than the last. The condo has everything needed to help you enjoy your stay. Snorkel, boogie boards, noodles, chairs, coolers, umbrella, and many other amenities, including a kitchen with all utensils needed. The grounds are very nice with two pools to choose from, and the neighbors, whether residence or fellow visitors, are friendly and welcoming. Thank you Jolene for making my stay wonderful again!

Owner's Response: Tracy, You are a wonderful guest, and please remind me when you book again who you are (I remember faces better than names) and I will give you a $5 a night discount. It was very nice to meet you this year and I hope to see you again next year. Jolene

Nice and well equipped unit.

  • 4 of 5

We had a very nice vacation in Hawaii, the Casa De Emdeko is a great place to stay. This unit is not a freshly renovated one, so your expectations need to be set accordingly. It is equipped very well, with all the stuff you may have forgotten to bring with you and more. The pools and the gardens are well kept and inviting. We would stay again.

There is a deli on site for quick eats and drinks. In the evenings while watching the sunset on the private beach you can toss some chicken bones into the tide pools and watch the eels come up and have dinner.
