THE CASA DE EMDEKO NO STAIRS

Kailua Kona Condo Rental Photos and Description

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.

Jeff and Jolene live 1.2 miles from the Casa. We have been married 33 years. We love Hawaii and want others to enjoy their stay here.

Jolene and Jeff Hanline purchased this condo in 2005

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

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.

EVERYTHING INCLUDED!

  • 5 of 5
This place had everything you could possibly need as your home away from home. They were so thoughtful right down to a baby sized beach chair and sand pail. It was such a big help for families with small children. I would definitely stay here again.

GREAT STAY!!!

  • 5 of 5
Had a wonderful time. The condo is stocked with everything needed and well cared for. Bed was very comfortable. Loved the fact that the unit is on the first floor. The grounds are beautiful. Thank you Jeff & Jolene!

A GREAT CONDO IN A GREAT COMPLEX!

  • 5 of 5
This place turned out to be even better than what we had imagined!
What a treat to sit out on your own lanai drinking your morning coffee in a tranquil setting or spending part of the evening chatting with friends at the sea front watching the sun go down. Priceless!
Our condo was equipped with everything we needed--every conceivable kitchen gadget, towels for the bath and beach, a nicely decorated lounge area, and a comfortable bed.
We always felt secure and appreciated how well the complex was managed. Grounds were groomed regularly and the BBQ and lounge seating area kept in excellent condition.
We'd like to thank Jolene and Jeff who obviously care that their guests have the best possible holiday. We certainly did!
Finally, we'd most certainly recommend this condo and complex to family and friends.

BIG MISTAKE!!!!!

  • 1 of 5
We were very disappointed with our stay. After the second night we found a different place to stay. The carpet looked stained or soiled, the shower floor was badly stained, and we saw roaches!!! We left with three nights still on the books, notified the owners twice over the situation and about a refund to no success. We were told our claims were unfounded and we were using this as an excuse because we were not happy with their condo and NO REFUND!! We saved our vacation by finding another place to stay.

Owner's Response: The complaint is untrue and reviews submitted by our other guests verify the condition in which we keep our beautiful little unit here in paradise. The complex has a contract with a professional exterminator to spray every unit in the complex on a regular basis and the Manager of the complex had the exterminator re-spray the unit the next day. But it was unnecessary.

CLEAN AND CONVENIENT

  • 4 of 5
Enjoyed the salt pool next to the ocean. There was some construction going on while we were there which was noisy. When the construction stopped it was very nice and quiet. Kitchen is well equipped and nice,new appliances. Had a pleasant stay.

NICE, BUT...

  • 3 of 5
This is a lovely little apartment: clean, well-equipped and well-furnished. The pools and 'beach' were nice, but the beach is not your typical type. Lounge chairs on the sand are surrounded by a nice courtyard and bar and have an ocean view. (There are few sandy beaches on the Big Island, because the island is 'newer' and beaches have not had time to develop.) The area of sand abuts a rock wall with a straight drop to lava rock and the ocean below. The setting is attractive and not dangerous, it's just not what you normally think of as a beach. The Alii Dr. location is very convenient for shops and restaurants, but they are not within a safe, walkable distance (No sidewalks, lots of cars.) However, I arrived after dark and had some trouble finding it, as the complex is behind a small row of shops and not well-marked or well-lit. Also, I would have liked to have known before I rented it and arrived that work crews were well underway in renovating the stairwells by drilling and pounding concrete pretty much all day just outside my door. There were a few steps, but nothing difficult. Without the construction, it would have been a 4 star stay.

Owner's Response: Aloha, and mahalo for your review. Most major maintenance work occurs during low season, so we suggest booking your next stay during high season to miss any construction that might be happening.

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.
