Long In The Tooth and Roachy But A Good Value
Unit #315. My wife and I stayed here September 1-16. We rented the unit through Sunquest Vacations. The condo was small but well appointed and maintained. It is a one bedroom unit without a washer/dryer. The bathroom is shower only. The living area has a sleeper sofa but this unit is too small to house more than 2 people. The sound of the waves crashing against the shore can be heard from the bedroom. The kitchen is stocked with every utensil imaginable. We found 5 enormous roaches during our stay. The 2 cans of roach spray in the utility closet should give you a clue. Although this particular unit is in fair shape, the complex itself is showing wear. Cracked tiles, rusty railings, a disgustingly dirty laundry room, leaking gutters and other problems are common. The firm who cleans the units for Sunquest does a bare-bones job. Nothing in the unit was really dirty, but neither was it to the standards you might expect at a good hotel. The cost, less than $100 a night including cleaning fee and taxes, is a good deal when compared to the hotel prices on the island. My experiences with the rental agent, Sunquest, were extremely disappointing. They miscalculated the rental cost, emailed me someone else's confirmation and became surly when we asked for directions to the office. I will not use their services in the future.
Enjoyed the Casa very much
We just returned from a 10 nite stay here, and thought it was a great deal. Our unit was very clean, and the grounds and pools are kept up beautifully. The location is convenient, 2 miles from town & 2 miles from Magic Sands beach, and there is a deli adjacent to the complex, which was extremely convenient. We had a great vacation on the big island and look forward to returning, and would not hesitate to stay at Casa de Emdeko again.
LOVE ROACHES?? This is the place for you!!
Nice bedroom, bathroom, living room and kitchen. Bathroom looked recently remodeled. Good sized closets. Nice balcony overlooking garden and pool. Also have a saltwater pool next to the ocean. These condos are in a great area. Short drive to the main area of shops and restaurants. No nearby beaches without driving, but the whole island is like that, unless you stay at a hotel directly on a beach. The management left instructions about the roaches, blaming them on the tropical climate or something like that. The instructions said to keep the doors closed so they wouldn't come in from outside. We opened our door twice a day, once to leave in the AM, and once to return in the PM. We had roaches ranging in size from the regular household sized ones to the super-sized at least two inches long by 3/4 inch wide. We saw them in our suitcases too!! When we got home, we unpacked the suitcases out in our yard. We had to shake everything out to prevent bringing them into our home. Hopefully the neighbors thought we were only getting rid of sand.
Perfect Vacation Spot
A really great place to spend your vacation. The gardens are gorgeous and relaxing. A great way to wake up in the morning and have your coffee on the lanai, watch the multi-colored birds splashing in the fountain and the gentle drum of the surf in the background. It was 10 days of tropical heaven. the complex is one of the oldest along Alii drive but the owners of the condos and the management are doing a great job of maintenance. Very, very comfortable. We have already booked for next year.
Wonderful Accommodations at a Reasonable Price
Found Casa de Emdeko on the web and read nothing but great reviews about it - and we weren't disappointed!
This is an older condo complex, but so well maintained! Beautiful landscaping, great pool and interesting salt water pool built right in to the coastline. A great way to cool off!
Due to the rocky coast, you can't swim in the ocean here, but the view is magnificent!
For the price and location, you just can't go wrong here!
Cannot wait to go back!
If you are considering Casa de Emdeko, do not hesitate. The complex is well located - mile walk from the hustle and bustle of Kailua-Kona. The grounds are well kept by a friendly staff. The saltwater pool was a delight - cool but refreshing! Both pools are clean. The complex is quiet and guests/residents abide by the quiet hours. We cannot wait to go back!
Casa de Emdeco was GREAT
I had never had any inclination to vacation in Hawaii. I figured all the tourism would make it a nightmare. But my wife had been a couple times in her youth and wanted very much to go again on one of our anniversaries. I threw my personal apprehensions aside and surprised her with a trip on our 20th wedding anniversary. I found Casa on the internet and booked it. The Casa de Emdeco was a large part of making the trip a success. It was beautiful, pleasant and enjoyable in every way. Having the choice between the freshwater pool and the saltwater pool was very nice. Feeding the eels in the ebbtides was quite unique.(They loved bologna). I highly recommend the Casa de Emdeco to anyone.
We love the Casa. Quiet, clean, perfect location. Two miles from town, two miles from Magic Sands Beach. We especially like the convenience of an on-site deli/market. The ocean-side saltwater pool is a unique, wonderful feature. Sunset entertainment includes feeding the moray eels that swim up from the rocks below. They line up like hungry dogs waiting to be fed !

... tired after our experience and when we docked a little after five, we were pretty hungry too. A suggestion from travel advisor, Binanellis' Pizza and Pasta in the Keauhou Shopping center called our name. Used to advertise as Chicago pizza but our waitress said they are a mid thick and thin pie...not the real deal. Back to the hotel for more pool time, on with the gin rummy tournament, reading and then snoozing by the ...
... water, no beach. The guys enjoyed it - there were plenty of fish, and Sara was blissfully unaware of the billions of sea urchins. I stayed on the rocks sunbathing and reading - it was a scorcher of a day! Next we decided to head out to the Green Sand Beach, which is at the most southern tip of the island (which also happens to be the most southern tip of the USA.

This refuge we went to is now a national park. It was by the ocean and very beautiful. On the way we stopped at a painted little church. On the way back we stopped at a local hamburger place called Annie's Island Fresh Burgers for lunch and had wonderful hamburgers made of local beef. ...

It's a really exciting project and the building is massive so there is lots to do!

... A bit further around is Panaluu Beach. This is just like any other Beach except the sand is black. The beach was formed from lava hitting the ocean and cooling quickly not from rocks breaking down. There are very few white sand beaches on Hawaii, most are grey or black. There is a green sand beach as well which is caused by the formation of peridot crystals.
This island is a geologists dream. There are so many different types of rock caused ...
