Un sitio muy recomendable por localización. Muy bien en general, mejorable la limpieza general del apartamento, no estaba sucio, pero tampoco estaba limpio. La locaclizacion es correcta, a 3 millas del Pier, las vistas insuperables y la terraza tanto del apartamento como la comunitaria muy muy bien.
Lo recomendaria.

We had an amazing time here. The view from the wrap around lanai was my happy place and I spent many hours there. The condo is very clean and well laid out. Needs some updating but didn't bother us at all. My only complaint is that we only had 3 rolls of tp for a family of 4. Also a broom would be nice for clean ups in the kitchen. Overall a fantastic experience. Loved the grounds and the salt water pool.

The view is great and beautiful, but some white towels are not very clean. And during our 3 days of stay, the supply of water has some problems in 2 days.

Casa DE Emdeko 219 - architecturally - was wonderful. The unit has been allowed to be run into the ground as far as maintenance and repairs, i.e., tiles broken and missing off counter tops in kitchen, rust on fridge and no handle to open fridge, toaster didn't work(took 3 days to get a new one), wallpaper peeling off the walls in several rooms, hot and cold handles to master bath tub broken to where only half of each were left (my wife refused to take a bath), many plug-ins in kitchen did not work,
This unit needs a complete remodel and serious updating - it is as if nothing has been done to the unit since it was built (1970's ?). Finally, we didn't get into the unit until two hours late and it was not very clean - the cleaning crew told us there had been a mixup and that they had never cleaned this unit before. And there were cockroaches!

I would not recommend this unit to anyone!!!!!

When we arrived the unit was still not ready after 5pm. Previous tenants had locked the keys inside and they had to break in, replace lock and clean. The housekeeper was apologetic, helpful and very delightful. The unit has a truly suburb view. The maintenance and upkeep is poor. The hardware on both toilets (handle) were barely attached. My husband is a contractor and fixed them so we could fush. Screen door was off track. Deck furniture in very poor repair. We only used the table and one rocker. The master bath appears dirty but we saw it being cleaned. Fortunately the 2nd bath newly remodeled so we used that. With such a gorgeous view, it is a shame they have not maintained the unit. There is a reason why it is 125 for such a perfect spot. Stay on lanai and you will love it.

The location and waterfront view are excellent BUT the condo itself is in need of a lot of work and attention.
Upon arrival the front door lock did not work, light bulbs were burned out and the vertical blinds were falling from the track and could not be opened closed or moved.
The master bathroom is a disgrace, we would not use the shower in it .
The indoor and out door furniture cushion are dirty ,stained and smell.
So it is to bad that it is not better cared for. It would have greatly enhanced our stay.

We stayed here for 8 nights. The view everyday was spectacular. We ate dinner on the Deck almost every evening because you don't get a better setting watching the 's a very nice walk into town, so the location is perfect.

My family and I enjoyed 9 days at this beautiful ocean front condo with unforgettable sunset evenings and the soothing sound of surf. It was unforgettable and we hope to return in the future.

We enjoyed our stay at 219 Casa de Emdeko. The oceanfront lanai was the best part. We had coffee there every morning and watched the sunset every night. We also enjoyed the pool.

I am not comfortable giving a poor review so I avoided this when asked the first time. This is the second request so I will avoid it no longer and will be honest. We were not booked into this room when we arrived and had to switch because there had been a problem in the original room. To give the benefit of the doubt, I don't think they meant to rent the unit at the time we were there. The toilets had not been cleaned and there were many repairs needed. The main ones were that one of the lanai doors was rusted shut (they told us about this), the other was very hard to open and the screen came off the track when moved. The dishwasher did not work and had standing water that smelled of mildew (which ended up soaking the bottom of the cabinet below the sink), the dryer vent was not connected and one bathroom sink barely drained. There were other smaller things as well. When sent this review to write I called the rental agency to tell them that I felt I had to tell about the problems in the unit and I was told that those things were being fixed. This room has a great view and the grounds are nice.

Pros: We had a great vacation. The resort was beautiful and the suite was perfect for a family of 6. Our kids(24 yrs old) took turns sleeping on the futon on the patio overlooking the ocean even though there were more than enough beds inside. We were able to see dolphins and whales from our balconey every morning. We watched all the boat tours that brought snorkelers and whale watchers in front of our resort. We had a family wedding at the resort so many times our unit was where everyone congregated as it was so large and the balconey was huge. Laundry available in the suite which was nice to throw a load in esp towels from the beach. Beds were comfortable. Lots of couches and chairs within the unit as well as on the balconey. BBQs available for use on the main patio with lots of seating and tables.

Cons: tiny little spiders/bugs were all over the kitchen countertops so constantly had to wash counters and never left any food, chips or bread on counter. Countertops were ceramic tile so crevices were hiding spots for bugs. Place is dated but was clean other than the bugs we encountered. Long walk from the car parking to unit for carrying groceries and luggage. The north side of the complex had a driveway that you could drive your car closer to unload.

We lived on the lanai! We watched outrigger paddlers, humpback whales, spinner dolphins from front row seats! We were able to sleep outside, enjoying the cadence of the waves thanks to daybed and lounge chairs. The condo is "dated" but still very functional.
Michelle E. February 16, 2013
This ocean-front unit is clean and nicely-equipped including a comfortable king bed and new flat-panel TV.
The views are spectacular, but the noise from the pounding of the waves meant we could not leave the bedroom window open at night to enjoy the cool breeze.

The property is at least 20+ years old and in need of many upgrades. The master bathroom in particular needs work. The grout on the kitchen counter is either very dirty or has be infected with mold. The kitchen appliances need upgrading. Paint is pealing off the exterior railing/molding. This property is not worth the asking rent!

Process was good overall. I booked the condo as soon as the booking system would allow (18 mos in advance). The deposit I gave was on a credit card which in the 18 month period between booking and final payment expired. When I was contacted for payment I was told payment was due 60 days prior to stay. I reviewed all paperwork I received and could only find mention of 60 notice of cancellation BUT NOTHING ABOUT FINAL PAYMENT DUE DATE. During my stay at the Casa I shared all my documents with Knutson staff and they were unable to find any mention of payment deadline; explained there must be something wrong with our software. I enjoyed my stay, everything was as I had expected. This is a great place to stay and very relaxing.

Ocean front fantastic views and overall layout of the condo works well. Disappointed in the inside of the condo (bathroom shower rusted concrete floor and door does not shut, towels smelled like urine, not renovated since what seems like the 1950s; several light bulbs burned out throughout the unit; second bedroom twin beds only useful if you are under 5ft; cockroach greeted us on the second night). Expected much more in the inside of the unit for what was paid!

I was a little nervous booking a vacation rental totally online. The pictures show exactly what you are getting. A huge wraparound balcony with a great view. We would sit on the balcony and watch the whales and dolphins while drinking our morning coffee. We enjoyed the location and would definitely come back to this unit. Convenient to everything around Kona and on the ocean.

The condo was a perfect spot, and we enjoyed it very much!! The complex is older, but grounds are well-kept. The condo, itself, is a bit runned-down. Could use a thorough, deep cleaning.

The screens and sliding glass doors really need a good cleaning.

A few other things to mention:
1. Although there was wireless available at the store on site, it would be nice to be able to have wireless in the condo.
2. Beach accessories, such as a cooler, would've been nice to have available in the condo. Had to go to Walmart to purchase a mobile one.

3. There are locked cabinets down the outside corridor, but didn't find a key to them. The cabinets weren't marked for the unit either, so we didn't know exactly what could be in them.

4. Would've been nice to have a list of items available within the condo ahead of time, i.e., hair dryer, iron, ironing board, games, washer/dryer, internet, etc.

Other than those few small things, the place is a perfect spot. REALLY enjoyed the lanai!!

The location and view from the wrap-around deck are fantastic. The unit was clean and well stocked with kitchen gear and towels. The unit itself, however is in serious need of electrical upgrading, new furniture, painting, and definitely new blinds. The second bedroom, AKA cubbyhole, could be less of a downer with better furniture.

We come back year after year to stay at 219. We LOVE IT! You can't get closer to the water than this!

We stayed with our two children 14 and 8. The view was amazing and i'm sure that is what we paid for. The condo was very outdated, and hadn't been cleaned properly when we had arrived. The sheets were dirty, dust hanging off the fans, and something that resembled feces on the bathroom floor. There was a note from the previous renter, that it was there when they rented the unit. Knutson & Associates quickly addressed the issue and cleaned the unit. I would highly recommend renting and will rent from Knutson & Associates again. I just won't be renting this unit. I think it was more money than it was worth. It needs updating, and DEEP cleaning. Our stay overall in Kona was wonderful, and we can't wait to go back. Knutson made our stay easy and smooth. No bumps in the rental process. Especially nice when you are traveling with children.

Loved Kona, the area was very enjoyable. The condo location was perfect for us. The condo worked out well for our family, the size was great! It was a bit dated, but very clean and well stocked. We would definitely stay here again.

Older building, not well maintained.Grounds were nice,2 pools.Oceanfront pool was dirty and not cleaned for 2 days due to high surf.Oceanfront condo view was fantastic.Condo was not clean on our arrival.Actual dirt on the toilet seat.Linens smelled badly.Beds were old and extra toilet paper or paper laundry soap.Old flat beach paraphernalia. Awesome location but not worth the price.
Anonymous March 30, 2014
The location is what sells this place; wonderful lanai, off-the-road quietness. But for the price you pay for it, this unit screams 'cheap!' Master bath is run down, probably hasn't been altered or painted since the building was built. Lumpy, uncomfortable beds and pillows, dark living room with questionable wiring and non-functioning lamps.
Suzanne S. November 1, 2014
The whole complex is in need of upgrading. One pool was closed - the one close to the ocean and the other was small with very little sitting area. Our unit was very run down ( the pictures online must be very dated)the furniture needs to be replaced, the kitchen is old and does not look clean, chips on the stove etc. We turned around and left and rented another condo down the road that was oceanside, upgraded beautifully with beautiful pools for $100 less per night?? We notified Knutson that day that we had moved on, and we received a message stating that it was unfortunate that the unit did not meet our expectations.We will not refer Casa De Emdeko and we suggest they better inform potential guests of the condition of the complex and unit 219.

Nice room with a great view. The overall complex was very nice and well maintained.

This was the worst place to ever stay, My place got broken into. The owner realtor never addressed my concerns. Do not RENT

The location and the grounds are spectacular! The end unit is a luxury with its wrap around balcony and ocean views. We found the kitchen and amenities to be well stocked with everything needed for a great stay. Be aware that it is a walk + 17 steps from the parking lot as the unit is on the ocean!! Also, if you like a firm mattress you'll want to sleep on one of the twin beds or on the balcony as the king bed is very soft. Location of complex is very convenient - about a mile from downtown, can walk or take the shuttle. Property management was also excellent; we needed their help when we locked ourselves out of the unit at 11 PM.
