About The Owner

Aloha from Floyd, owner of Casa de Emdeko #326. I fell in love with the Bid Island when I came here for a visit in 2014 and in 2015, I struck gold when I purchased this unit. The unit is remodeled and wonderfully decorated to ensure all guests feel like they are truly "getting away".

I hope you enjoy the unit as much as I do and wish you all a wonderful stay on the Big Island!

The Owner purchased this condo in 2015

Why The Owner chose Kona Coast

As I was looking for a place, I just fell in love with Alii Drive and Casa de Emdeko is smack dab in the middle of the most lovely street on this island! The complex has great amenities and it is right on the beach! Whenever I come to the Big Island, my condo retreat helps me rejuvenate and let go of all my stresses. There's just something about this little slice of heaven that I couldn't pass up.

What makes this condo unique

What I love the most about the Casa is it's tranquil setting. You don't even need to leave the complex in order to spend the day at the 'beach'! The Casa has it all! The unit is clean and cozy and a wonderful place to relax and enjoy some peace and quiet. From watching the sun rise in the morning, to swimming in the ocean side pool, hanging out at the 'beach' and grilling delicious island fish at the cabana you won't find a more equipped complex as the Casa De Emdeko!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for sharing your beautiful condo with us! Every inch of your house is uniquely decorated and well thought out. We thoroughly enjoyed staying here, Kona is breathtaking.



We hope that you will share your home with us again in the near future.

Exceeded Our Expectations

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our two weeks in this unit. We have stayed at this condo location many times over the past 15 years, in a variety of units.

We love the layout of the complex; its garden area, with water features, plants and flowers, the fresh water pool in the middle of the courtyard, the cabana/BBQ area, second pool, and man-made sand beach on the "dry" side of the seawall. Over the years, upgrades have been made and this is still one of the best condo complexes on the Island.

First time we stayed on the third floor, and we got a lot of additional exercise using the stairs (there's an elevator on the same level just steps from our condo entrance).

There was a change in ownership after we booked the condo, but there were no problems in the transition. In fact, the property manager (Lori) for the new owner met us at the unit the night we arrived. She provided a tour and answered questions, and made us feel very welcome.

The unit was very nice and clean. The bed was very comfortable, the bathroom was larger than most, with two entrances (from the bedroom & hallway). All the appliances worked, including the clothes washer & dryer. There was a minor problem with the living room TV remote control, but that should be resolved by now. Plenty of towels, and many other extras in the unit, but some small beach chairs & coolers would be nice additions.

While we adapted, an upgrade to the furniture would be a plus.

From the third floor lanai there is more than a partial view of the ocean, as well as Hualalai Mountain, plus a great view of the courtyard's garden area. This lanai also adds additional private living space, that a ground floor unit does not.

The Casa is just a little over a mile from town, a nice early morning walk for coffee and/or breakfast.

All in all, we would rate this condo a 4.7 or 4.8 out of 5.0, and would look to stay in this condo again.

Great Experience- Recommend

  • 4 of 5

My husband, 8 year old daughter, and I shared this condo for 9 days and had a wonderful stay. The bed was comfortable, temperature control worked seamlessly, and the laundry and bathroom facilities were efficient and just what we needed. The condo was close enough to town to walk or bike if needed, though we had a rental car and usually used that for day trips in and past town.

I have to say my husband and I giggled a little bit at a previous reviewer's mention of the discomfort of the furniture, specifically the couch and bar stools, but after 9 days we might be inclined to agree! It was certainly not a deal breaker and we would happily stay here again, but it's worthy of a mention for those travelers for whom furniture comfort might make that difference. Because most of our days were spent outdoors and at beaches, it wasn't much of a sacrifice.

The condo complex was nice, well maintained, and although others have mentioned it being outdated, we found it to have all the amenities we needed and more, and it was clean and the other residents were very friendly.

The pools were nice- I am not a huge fan of heavy chlorine, so we spent a lot of time at the beaches in the area, but our daughter LOVED swimming in one or both pools daily. One night the waves were crashing high and spilled into the saltwater pool down by the "beach" of the condo and it was quite memorable, especially with the gorgeous sunset backdrop. That is an experience you can't put a price on.

Overall, this experience was nice, convenient, and the owners were very easy to communicate and coordinate with. We felt taken care of without being "managed" so that was a nice tone to set. If we were to come back to Kona, we would certainly stay here again. Recommend!

**What could have made this 5-star quality? More comfortable furniture, a lanai shade for comfort and heat control in the hot mornings, and doors with latches rather than magnets for closure inside the unit (I know it sounds nitpicky but it was quite loud no matter how gently the door was closed and that was tough at night!).

Totally Awesome Condo in Kona

  • 5 of 5

We loved this condo. It had every amenity and was thoughtfully remodeled and maintained. It was our second stay in this unit. It has a fantastic location in the resort. It is on the same level as the elevator (on the third floor, and I was always able to park within just a few feet of the elevator below. The whole complex has a great family feel and most people staying in the resort gather at sunset (which is almost always fantastic) and cook their dinner on the BBQs provided. This unit and resort are the best values in Kona. I had recommended this unit before to honeymooners and they loved it!

It was nice, but...

  • 3 of 5

Casa de Emdeko was easy to locate and within a reasonable driving distance to Kailua-Kona. The website for the unit was exceptional. It was clean and well-stocked except for the absence of a big pot for pasta. Although we found the unit tastefully decorated, the grounds were lovely and the proximity to the ocean was great, the comfort level of the furniture and the bed were below our expectations. We just could not get comfortable on any of the seats. We were also not accustomed to the very unusual AC system which did not allow us to turn the fan off. A shade for the lanai would have been helpful for the morning sun and privacy. All in all, our stay was good and we would recommend it to others as being within a good price range for an older condo.
