Overview

Kona Coast 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.

About Jolene and Jeff Hanline

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

Why Jolene and Jeff Hanline chose Kona Coast

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.

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.

We love Casa and Jolene and Jeff's place was great.

  • 4 of 5

We were acquainted with Casa a few years ago when my family stayed there. This year we too rented a spot at Casa for our entire 3 week vacation. The Hanline's suite is on the main floor facing the north so it does not get the direct sun - which is nice on those warm Hawaiian days. The suite is well furnished and equipped with everything necessary for cooking meals, cleaning up and vacationing (including some beach chairs, umbrella, boogie boards, water shoes etc.) . The suite was clean with fresh linens etc. Jolene was great about responding promptly to any questions we had prior to our arrival as well as when we were there.

Casa has a wonderful little beach area and a fantastic salt water pool right along the rock beach wall. The ocean front is not accessible for swimming so this pool is a wonderful asset to Casa. We like to walk along the rocky shore north of the property and dig in the coral and shell rocks looking for treasures when the tide allows. Casa is located only a couple miles out of Kailua Kona. Its an easy and enjoyable walk especially early in the day. Many people make it a daily ritual to walk along Alii Drive.

Staying in Kona is best if you rent a vehicle. There is so much to see on the Island that it makes it worth while and at the end of any excursion - its always nice to come "home" to Casa. We went whale watching with Hang Loose tours and found them to be very reasonable and delivered what we signed up for. We watched several whales for quite awhile in close proximity. We toured to the Volcano, South Point, Green Sands, North to Hawi and to the Pololu lookout - each were breath taking! our favourite restaurant is Splashers, at the beginning of Alii drive, where the service is great and the prices are reasonable. (being on a Canadian travelers budget they allowed us to share meals at no extra charge and were more than accommodating to allow this. Breakfast includes the coffee which is another bonus! Huggo's is a nice place to put your feet in the sand and have a happy hour cocktail and some fish tacos or sliders.

The common area is equipped with several great barbecues to cook evening meals and many of the vacationers enjoy their meals under the gas lit torches. If you don't come with friends you will probably make a few by the time you leave. It is a real community and everyone at Casa; the workers,

Lovely little condo with great pool and private beach

  • 5 of 5

We had a brilliant 4 days at Casa de Emdeko whilst on the Big Island. The condo is in a great location, just a few miles south of Kona town with it's own little private beach and a large seawater pool right by the ocean. There is also a smaller, freshwater swimming pool for those who prefer. The condo had everything we needed for our stay, was very clean and peaceful. All of the neighbours we met were extremely friendly, and gave us good tips on where to visit as well as (in one case) donating their remaining beer and food supplies to us on their last day! Jolene was super helpful - we left a pair of sunglasses in the flat and Jolene arranged to meet us later on in the week when we were passing back through Kona after visiting Volcano to ensure we got them back safely - big mahalo!

There is plenty to do and see within just a few miles of Casa de Emdeko - highlights for us were our night snorkeling trip with the manta rays, and a snorkel trip to Captain Cook bay to swim with wild Hawaiian spinner dolphins!

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.
