The greatest view from a large wrap-around lanai, facing the ocean from one side, and the lush green courtyard from the other. Comfortable, clean condo. Only complaint was that the unit really isn't air-conditioned as advertised. We never could get the temperature to below 77 degrees

Best view ever!!
by Dale F
This unit has the best view ever!! It's on the top floor, right in front overlooking the ocean. Nice and spacious for family gatherings. We understand they will be doing some upgrades (which it could definitely use) but the lanai and view are worth every penny!! Will try to get it again in the future!!

A truly wonderful place to vacay!!! The sunsets from the lanai are remararkable.. we ate in almost everynight because it was so hard to leave!!! The home is wonderfully stocked and clearly lots of love went into this home. The kitchen was stocked w/ basic cooking supplies, our host also left us with detergent to do laundry and dishes as well as providing beach chairs, ample bath towels as well as beach towels (good thick quality towels, not those flimsy tourist towels)/umbrellas... Mahalo to our host!!! The A/C is a little outdated (that is the only minor complaint).

This property was perfect for our family of four! Beautiful views and sunsets from the patio with lots of comfortable options for sitting and dinning outside. The property was very clean, quiet and had a nicely laid out floor plan. We loved being on the top floor and a corner unit. The kitchen was well stocked with dishes and cooking utensils. Yes, the property has some quirks that could use updating but you hardly notice with the amazing views. We would most definitely go back!

Always a great stay
by Marleen M
We have stayed at the complex before in the ground floor unit with the same floor plan. We liked being on the third floor to take total advantage of the views. The unit is as advertised. I agree with some other comments that it could use a bit of updating in the kitchen and bath. It is tastefully decorated with nice seating inside and out. The kitchen is one of the best equipped we have ever rented! It had a large assortment of dishes, cooking utensils, spices and a few other staples. It made preparing meals really easy. We had a garbage disposal issue and the property management company had it fixed within an hour. I like dealing with Elite Properties. We have found the perfect complex for our Kona visits and hopefully this unit will be available for our next stay.

We will definitely be using boundless hawaii for future getaways.

A kings Palace
by Stayed 4 Days in September 2018 past guest
If you want to feel like a king and queen for a period of time, then this rental property is for you. This apartment is what every vacation rental should be like. The complex was secure and the management staff was excellent. The apartment looks out over the ocean and the balconies are awesome. My wife, myself and the couple we were traveling with stayed on those balconies all day. We ate breakfast, lunch and dinner to the sound of crashing waves and the most beautiful sunsets imaginable. The apartment gave a three way view of the ocean and the surrounding salt water pool. The apartment is located on the top floor and screams of elegance. I cannot express how wonderful this rental property was, but I know deep down that if I ever travel to that part of the island again, I will plan my vacation around this apartments vacancy. If your plans take you to Kona, do look into renting this apartment because you will be a “Star” in the eyes of your friends or family. As our friend use to say “This is my Happy Place”.

All we can say was WOW!!!!
by Stayed 8 Days in December 2017 past guest
This was our first trip to the Big Island and we could not have found a better place to stay. The Unit was exactly everything we wanted for our vacation. Top story penthouse end unit with the most amazing views and balcony. I guarantee that you will spend hours on the balcony just listening to the waves, and watching the stars in privacy! The unit is well furnished and once again has the greatest views. The pictures on the web do not even do justice to the panoramic views. This place was awesome and we will definitely return. It was a privilege to be allowed to stay here, and we really thank the owners for giving us( and the public) the rare chance to live like Hawaiian Royalty. Thank you Boundless Hawaii for having such a great rental opportunity. The rental staff were great too. This is an organization that knows how to do it right!

This property is at an excellent location, has an excellent view on the water, has a lovely salt water pool, well stocked & near the town of Kona. The master bed was really comfortable! Only negatives were unit smelled bad (probably from carpet), especially 2nd bedroom (one of my daughters ended up sleeping on the couch as smell bothered her a lot) and there are small ants which we discovered after dropping a small potatoe chip on the kitchen floor. If these issues were rectified, we would consider coming back and/or recommending it to friends. Otherwise a great place to stay. Thank you.
Beautiful condo and beautiful location.
by Stayed 7 Days in May 2017 past guest
We love this condo and have stayed here before. Very nice furnishings and located right near the water. Watched yellow tangs and other fish from our balcony. You can see the rays in the water if the water is calm at night.
A view of paradise
by Stayed 10 Days in April 2017 past guest
We enjoyed a truly relaxing vacation in this unit. The view is the best in the complex and the owners were very generous having a fresh bouquet of Hawaiian flowers delivered on our first day as well as leaving coffee for us. the unit has very comfortable amenities, plenty of linens and even an icemaker and new washer and dryer. There is a nice boogie board as well. There is plenty of dresser and closet space for everything. The lanai furniture is all very current and comfortable. We will be back!
Casa De Emdiko 338 - location - location - location!!!
by Stayed 16 Days in April 2017 past guest
This was our 3rd time staying in this unit. The location is amazing. If stairs are a problem however - this is not a unit you will want. access is a bit difficult and often requires a lot of walking to parking as well. Having said that - you can't get much closer to the ocean. We spend most of our time out on the huge Lanai which is well furnished. I wouldn't call the unit upscale as the appliances and counters could use some updating but it was clean, well equipped, well air conditioned as again - location is spectacular! We had no problems with the unit other than a tricky screen door (comes off tracks)and we have found Boundless Hawaii is great to work with. We'll be back!

We stayed Casa De Emdeko 338 for 5 nights in Sep. Overall, we enjoyed staying this beautiful 2 beds & 2 Bath rooms condo. I was skeptical about this place until I opened the entrance door because pictures I saw online were too good to be true. However, this condo was exactly same as pictures. The L shape Balcony was the best of best. There are plenty of spaces for two breakfast tables with four chairs, two sundeck chairs with sofa. We spent all day at balcony, just listening sounds of ocean with nice cold drinks. It was THE vacation. Kitchen was outdated but good size and functioning. I found water leak in the fridge but it was not major. so we just avoided the spot that water was leaking. There are two single beds in the small bedroom and queen size bed in the master bedroom. Although single beds were bit small for adults but all beds were very comfortable. Major issue was draining at both bathrooms. Especially, the shower room in the master bedroom was really bad. I needed to shut water off often to wait to drain while taking shower. This condo does not provide much provision. I was optimistic about it although instruction indicated they provide " only starter kit" because our stay was only 5 nights. But I was very wrong about it, There were only two dishwasher detergents and three rolls of toilet papers. It would have been nice if they stock little bit more. Over all, we had wonderful time and we would love to come back soon.
by Stayed 7 Days in May 2016 past guest
Gorgeous views!!!! The lanai will have you captivated for hours! We saw spinner Dolphins, manta ray, turtles, eels. Not to mention all the boat activity.... Amazing, relaxing place! You will not be disappointed in this rental!

by Stayed 14 Days in December 2015 past guest
We love this unit - It offers so much privacy. We end up spending most of our time out on the huge waterfront wrap around Lanai watching dolphins and whales and enjoying the fresh ocean breezes and abundant sunshine. Comfortable beds and great outdoor furnishings. Kitchen not very well stocked and disliked the Teflon peeling pans - these need an upgrade. Also there was no dust pan or glass cleaner. The place should be better equipped with supplies.THe only real negative was all the sugar ants. We cleaned up meticulously but the ants only got worse for our two week stay. We purchased additional traps and sprays and still they kept coming - at least they were small. We had no other significant issues and really enjoyed our stay in spite of the little ants! I would have rated all fives but for the ants. We will look to rent this unit again but hopefully they can exterminate the ants.

My wife and i planned this trip as a gift to our two grandsons for their highschool graduation present. We looked for a property on alii drive to make it easier for the boys to get around and make it to activies and shopping. my wife and i enjoyed the great views from the Lanai every morning for a couple hours and never tired of it. the amenities were great, the kitchen had everything we needed including a coffee grinder, something no kona condo should be without. the washer and dryer worked geat after i pulled the two socks out of the pipe. Be sure to have the lint screen in place! the furniture is all real nice, the queen bed is comfortable, the room was clean and comparitively bug free. i would love to come back and stay again with another couple if we could have a second queen bed for them. Can you do this? i would recommend this room to anyone who can manage the stairs as the elevator is a ways away and there are some stairs to travel after getting out of it, all in all i give it a high rating.
Best view on the island
by Stayed 5 Days in June 2015 past guest
I would absolutely recommend this rental to friends and family. The location is amazing and we all loved the view of the ocean. Each morning we'd watch a sea turtle swimming right in front of the break wall. The unit is clean, well-stocked and comfortable. My only criticism is the bed in the master - it felt like we were sleeping in quicksand. Also, I suspect we didn't quite understand how to most efficiently use the air-conditioner. Regardless, we would definitely stay there again! Thank you!
Wonderful Experience Here
by Stayed 3 Days in March 2015 past guest
This was our second time staying in condo #338. We enjoyed every evening on the lanai and although we did not have a sunset in 7 days, we enjoyed the view. The days were spent watching whales and dolphins swim by. The location cannot be beat. There are a few negative things- the condo needs the carpets cleaned. Guests must not remove their shoes as requested and there were stains from past guests. Please also supply some basic cleaning supplies to help maintain this property. Boundless Hawaii is a very professional rental company to work with. Thank you!

Terrific view the best pool ever!
by Stayed 14 Days in November 2014 past guest
We have stayed in this unit many times in the past when we knew the owner. However, a number of years ago the unit was sold and we have not stayed in it since. The kitchen has not been remodeled but is ok with us. The down side of this unit is that you can tell that the owners don't stay in the unit. We rent condos often and what we normally find is that extra things are left in the cupboards such as cooking oil, spices, al foil, saran wrap, garbage bags, couple cans of soda, water beer etc. Then as we use things, we replace them and leave other items that we have purchased. There was nothing in this unit except salt and pepper! One thing that is not acceptable is that you can see right through the curtains in the bedroom and people walk by often! I hung towels up over the curtain rod so that we could have some privacy. I didn't want some poor fellow dying of a heart attack when he happened to glance in the window and saw my old naked body!! This should really be taken care of. If the owners stayed in the unit, they would definitely do something different. We love the salt water pool. We stay at the Casa for specifically that. In fact, when we rent a condo at the Casa, we make sure the pool will be open. This particular unit is the best one in the complex for the view. It is spectacular!

Best View in Kona
by Stayed 4 Days in August 2014 past guest
We had a fabulous 4 days at CDE #338 Everything was as advertised, the condo had everything that we could have possibly wanted! The best thing about the whole stay was watching the ocean from the wrap around lanai the sunsets in the evening were SPECTACULAR!! Cristina from Boundless Hawaii was a joy to deal with!
Wow...What a Location!!!
by Stayed 4 Days in April 2014 past guest
The best thing about Hale Makana O Ke Akua is the location. Right on the water!! No one above you and nothing blocking your view of the ocean. Sunsets are absolutely amazing!!! Listening to the ocean all night = Priceless. We thought it would keep us awake all night...Nope! Slept the best ever. The condo has plenty of amenities. The complex is older, but it well maintained. We had a few issues with noisy toilets and ceiling fans and an A/C filter that needed to be changed...but they were minor. Casa De Emdeko 338, aka Hale Makana O Ke Akua, is at the top of our list when we return.
We Loved Staying Here!
by Stayed 7 Days in March 2014 past guest
We have stayed at numerous places in Kona and this has to be one of our favorites! We loved working with Amanda at Boundless Hawaii. We spent most of our time on the lanai and enjoyed watching dolphins and whales everyday. It was so relaxing to sit and enjoy the spectacular view, eat dinner and watch the sunset. The lanai has two tables, plenty of chairs and lounge chairs. The bedrooms were very comfortable and had ample storage space for all of us. The linen closet is well stocked and the condo has beach towels, a cooler and even some snorkel gear. The kitchen had everything we needed and more. We traveled with 2 seniors (81 and 87) and they had no problem with the stairs or making their way to the elevator. The salt water pool was a fantastic way to cool off and the barbeques were clean and a great way to meet other guests. There is a small washer and dryer in the unit but if you need to do a few loads at a time, the facility does have a very clean laundry room. You can buy change and soap at the store on the front of the property. Parking was a little difficult for us to get close to our unit, but there was always a spot available just a short walk away. Thank you for sharing your wonderful home with us and we hope to return next year.

The location of this 2-brm condo (top floor, ocean-front location) was fantastic. The wrap-around balcony with 180-degree views up and down the coast was amazing, and we watched spinner dolphins and whales from the balcony on several occasions. Both the fresh water pool and the ocean-front salt water pool were lovely, and the complex as a whole was very nice -- mostly quiet and relaxing. It is only a couple of minutes' drive to town, or an easy 20-30 min walk. We were surprised to find no phone in the unit. I guess most people have cell phones these days, but we found this quite inconvenient, and would like to have known this beforehand. Unlike most units that we have stayed in in the past, this unit had absolutely NO basics for guests to use in the kitchen (including no salt, pepper, spices, etc). A small detail, but a bit surprising and off-putting in an otherwise fantastic vacation rental. The owners of the unit might want to consider including a few of these small details, which really do make a big difference. Overall, the unit and location were lovely, and we would definitely recommend it to others.

This unit needs air conditioning for a more pleasant stay. Have stayed in many other units in this wonderful complex (Casa De Emdiko) and all had working air conditioning. The fans help but unless all doors were left open the unit got Very uncomfortable. We had to clean lint from the dryer as it was completely plugged. Lots of sugar ants in the kitchen. The unit has carpet wear and stains. Still over all a pretty clean unit. The views are incredible and we thoroughly enjoyed the over sized balcony. You need to do a lot of stairs but the privacy and location is well worth the inconvenience.

All went according to plan , lovely location, apartment great amazing lanai with lovely view. Everything we needed was there.grounds were well maintained , very quiet, nice pools.one ceiling fan not working but another fan provided , no explanation of this and no mention when it was to be fixed. Sea very tempting as you can see fish and you want to go in but due to nature not possible but ten mins up the road good snorkelling. Just to be aware there is a lift to the floor but it is quite far away from the apartment and there are still steps to cart luggage up and down,, it was ok for us but if you you have heavy stuff and are not very able it may be difficult.. We had a great week there .
The ocean view from this property is spectacular!
by Stayed 7 Days in July 2013 past guest
Casa De Emdeko is an older, well maintained and quiet property. The master bathroom of our condo needed some work but other than that, the place was comfortable and the view was amazing. We would stay there again. We were also pleased with the quality of service and friendliness of the staff at Boundless Hawaii LLC and would recommend them to anyone planning to visit the Islands.

by Stayed 7 Days in May 2013 past guest
Unit 338 was the perfect unit to stay in while visiting Kona, as far as the other units at this condo go, they better be real reasonable. The grounds could use some work, but some maintenance was being done while there, I would recommend putting the actual cost of the unit up front, while the base rate was $165.00, by the time all "the extras" were added the cost was over $220.00 a night. Buy, like I said, the view from this unit was as good as it gets and made up for the extra cost.

We enjoyed our stay very much the view was terrific! We thought the condo was lovely, pretty much just like the pics. We used the map to navigate around the island, The Hawaii books were very helpful the management company was very helpful with the to do's and don'ts and when we needed help with the wi-fi they were very helpful. a couple of suggestions it would have been really nice to have had a couple of snorkeling masks available for use. a beach bag to barrow. and the shower floor in the master bedroom cleaned or fixed or painted something we did not use it even though we thought it had been cleaned the floor in the shower was so unappealing we did not chance it.

The view is UNBEATABLE
by Stayed 8 Days in August 2011 past guest
We loved our stay at Casa de Emdeko (pronounced EM-duh-koh.) It was everything we wanted. The complex property and pools were very nice (and quite quiet in August.) There was a small deli in front that was convenient. The condo was furnished as advertised. The ocean view from the living area is excellent. The LR furniture was uncomfortable. The lanai furniture is not what's pictured, but I liked it better and there was plenty of seating . The second bedroom is small as is the main bath. The master bed is comfy and that bathroom is large. The kitchen is adequate. Overall I might say the inside of the unit is a bit tired. HOWEVER, none of that mattered one bit when you stepped onto the lanai. The 3rd floor view of the ocean is an unobstructed 180 degree panorama. Because the lanai is L-shaped, you also have a mountain view. You watch the sun come up in the AM with your coffee and the sun set at night with your cocktails. The lanai is huge and perfectly situated. (There are even plumeria trees planted below which smell beautiful.) The oceanfront view was very important to us and this condo was exactly what we wanted, maybe more. We were also concerned because there was a "surcharge" for the AC. We never used it. Apart from the first night we entered the unit (which had been unoccupied and closed up for a couple of days) it was never too warm. The doors/windows do allow good ventilation and the breezes don’t stop. Plus, I can't imagine closing the windows and shutting out the sound of the ocean. The walk to town is about a mile. Do-able, but maybe a bit long. I researched our condo choice exhaustively, and I was very satisfied with Casa de Emdeko #338.

Casa is a condo complex that offers everything on property one could want. Especially love the salt water pool.

This condo was perfect for our family (2 adults, 2 young teens). The wrap-around lanai gives you the best view in the entire place! Great pools, very nice people & perfect location in Kona. Highly recommended & can't wait to stay there again! Anna Marie & Sherri, at Prince Properties, were fabulous!! Thank you for everything!

We stayed over Christmas 2010. The wrap around lanai provided amazing panoramic views of the ocean. The sound of the waves were wonderful at night. The unit was updated, well decorated and equipped. The kitchen had new houswares and the beach chairs, toys, snorkel equipment, cooler etc were well appreciated. The common areas had great bbqs, patio chairs etc. We really enjoyed the little sandy area just in front of the seawall. Some suggestions to make the unit perfect are to have the carpet cleaned thoroughly and on a regular basis as it was quite dirty. A new mattress in the master room is needed and the updating of the bathrooms would make the unit completely updated. Great location! Mahalo

Most excellent place to stay. Views are great. Went snorkling right off the rocks. Saw dolphins, scuba divers, and the list goes on.

Location and general quality of prperty was almost perfect-very quiet and peaceful also. Not so thrilled with the 'list' of dos/don'ts that go with the property, especially in terms of housekeeping. In terms or laundry, etc. seems a bit much to ask of a guest who is paying for the rental.

The best condo we've ever staying in on any island. Highly recommended!
Highly recommended, very affordable

Great location, a car is necessary for touring around. Pool areas are fantastic. Views from the balcony are spectacular. Complex is very quiet. I would replace the coffee maker and sofa cushions just to bring the condo up to the next level.
4 Beautiful Days in Kona

Property is a little dated, but the beautiful view makes up for it. If you were any closer to the water, you'd be in it. The other condo owners and guests are very friendly. I would definitly come back again.

The day revolved around getting back to the condo in time to watch the sunset every evening.Directions to the condo were very clear and easy to follow. Easily accessible to all tourist points of interest. We all had a wonderful time.

We saw two turtles from the deck coming up regularly for air.People on the ground could not see them.The very first coffee on the deck we saw spinner dolphins going by with an entourage of tour boats.Para-sailors trying to drop their clients in close enough to get our view of the huge waves(which were lit up at night by a spotlight) Yeah! you could say the location was great!The corner store was handy too!We didn't find out how nice the pools and cooking setup were till the last day, we hiked all the time and cruised,,,decent place allright-cheers

Marvalous unit overlooking the pacific with an unbeleivable 180 degree view of the pacific. The third floor corner lanai gives you the feeling of total privacy and sensation of being on the waters edge. A special vacation experience.

The condition and location of the condo were excellent. There were a few things that could be improved. Lanai furniture was worn and needs replacing. Sliding glass doors were extremely difficult to move. Windows in bedrooms could not be opened. Otherwise, the rest was in excellent condition. Pools were exceptional. The salt water pool felt great and was impressive as it sits right on the coastline with waves crashing next to you.
