Wow! What a location! Gorgeous gardens, unique u-shaped complex, where every condo has a view. Our condo is unique in that we not only have a great ocean view from our special lanai, but one wall in the kitchen-living room is mirrored - this provides an awesome ocean view from the inside. We are fifth condo from the ocean, steps to our private beach and ocean front pool...steps to our second pool. Ideal location for barbaque and cabana area and sunset watching. Many people have told us we have the best location of any one bedroom ground floor condo in the complex. It is so special to us, we waited several years for our condo to come on the market. It is incomparable for the ground floor location. Floors are tiled with travertine tile that continues out onto our lanai. Gorgeous bathroom with twin sinks and oversized shower. Very special place of paradise. This property is a perfect place to make new friends, or relax in privacy. In demand first floor location. Hallway leads into bathroom, bedroom has new queen-sized mattress.Only need to be bring bathing suits. Beach towels provided, Kitchen has everything you need to prepare special meals.

Vacationing at Casa since 1980, purchased in 1985. It is by far, a very special place. My children and their children vacation here. It is so special to all of us.
Golf, swimming, reading, spending time on our private beach, walking, dining out, cocktails at sunset, watching the whales and dolphins swim by!
We enjoyed the Casa De Emdeko location and facilities. This is our third stay in the complex. We are giving it 4 stars because of the location and complex amenities. This unit is on the north side of the complex and gets direct sun on the patio in the winter. It was very warm in the afternoons but there are roll down shades that help. There is a step to get to the front door and a step from the walkway to the back patio. The air conditioning worked well and there are ceiling fans in all the rooms. The queen size bed was comfortable. Because it is away from Alii Drive it is relatively quiet. The refrigerator has an automatic ice maker. There is no tub (fine by us) and a nicely tiled shower with a grab bar. The kitchen had lots of pots and pans and utensils. It is easy to cook all meals. There are two TVs but only one remote which only worked on the bedroom TV. The decor is dated. The unit was rather dark (low wattage bulbs and missing bulbs), especially the kitchen. There was no password protected internet access for the unit. When we asked about this the owner said that she was between providers and suggested we use another units unprotected access, not cool. Hawaii has bugs and we had large cockroaches come in under the screen door if we left the front door open. We would recommend this unit with some reservations.
This condo has it all! Great location in the complex. Since it is on the ground level you don't have to worry about climbing stairs with your suitcases and it is quick to get to the ocean edge to watch for dolphins. The bbq area is close but yet not to close that you get all the noise from other guests enjoying themselves. The condo itself is so well stocked, it has everything that you need and more. The furniture is very comfortable as is the queen size bed. Communication with Molly was quick and easy as well.
I recently had the chance to go to the Big Island with friends. I had no previous experience there although I travel extensively. What a treat! I loved all the Big Island has to offer with all of its diversity. I especially enjoyed staying at the Casa de Emdeko, unit 134. It was ideally situated in the beautifully groomed grounds. Close to the private beach with an ocean view. It was quiet. The condo was well maintained and appointed and all the people I met there were delightful. Love, love the traditional gathering at the common lanai for drinks and pu pu's to watch the sun set. The condo has two pools, but I must admit I only used the salt water pool situated right on the ocean. Can't wait to go back.
My husband and I have stayed at Casa twice- we love the location, amenities, and the beautifully kept grounds. Molly and Jim's unit was perfect for this trip- my husband did the Lavaman Triathlon and we spent a lot of time doing training swims, rides, and runs. Casa is located a convenient distance from great swimming beaches, bike rides, and runs. It was so relaxing! I barely checked work emails the whole trip!
We loved the condo! We would recommend it to anyone!!
Being on the ground floor makes it so easy to access the pools, bbq and lounge chairs that look out to the ocean. While sitting there we saw many whales and dolphins almost everyday, spectacular!
Breakfast every morning on the deck was so nice, we could see and hear the ocean. A great start to every day.
The condo is very clean and bright, with the condo grounds really well kept.
We did a lot of sight seeing and staying at the Casa made it so easy to do day trips. We are already planning out trip back next year as we loved it so much.
Molly was very easy to contact and replied very quickly to any questions we had. She made our first time in Hawaii and using VRBO so easy.
Thank you Molly and Jim for sharing your place in paradise.
Casa De Emdeko is my absolutely favorite place to stay on the Big Island. The grounds are so peaceful, beautiful and well maintained. There is a private beach and not one but two pools. I absolutely love to swim in the saltwater pool which is right on the ocean. The Casa is so well situated giving easy access to all the Big Island has to offer and Molly and Jim’s condo is as far as I am concerned is the best placed condo in the complex. It is on the ground floor and just steps to the beach and pools while maintaining privacy. The views are amazing from this condo. It is well appointed and exactly as presented. I have stayed there several times and plan on returning soon. No one could go wrong renting this little piece of paradise.
Take a trip to the South End of the Island to the beautiful Volcano - it is active and a spectacular sight to see! Note: Hawaii T.AT. #W040911610-01
