Lisa S. from Salt Spring Island, BC recommends this property. Stayed for 18 days in October, 2016 We love the Casa De Emdeko. This was our third visit and you can't beat the location, beauty and amenities of the complex. Our unit was older and could use some updating for sure, but the price was right. Very spacious and lots of beach chairs, coolers etc. Our only issue was the washing machine was not working nor was the phone. We didn't miss the phone but a washer in our unit was expected. The unit could definitely use new towels, (beach and bath), but both beds were extremely comfortable. We have used Knutson & Associates before and will continue to use them in the future.
Property Manager Response: Response from Knutson & Associates Aloha Lisa, Thank you SO much for taking the time to review Casa#111. I have passed your feedback to the owners..I appreciate the honesty!! We have repaired the washer so it should not be an issue in the future. The owner is replacing the towels when they come this weekend!! Mahalo again, Knutson & Associates Property Management
Nate B. from Glendale, Arizona recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in August, 2016 Our stay at Case De Emdeko in general was very nice and comfortable. The place was clean and had all the amenities including Air Condition with well equipped kitchen. Blake was very helpful in ensuring our stay was comfortable and addressed immediately couple of issues. The facility is close to ocean (200 feet away). We also had late checkout at 9PM for a nominal charge of $50. Facility is within 5 minutes driving to all the restaurants and shops. We would certainly plan to stay here when we plan to make the trip to Kona again.
Property Manager Response: Response from Knutson & Associates Aloha Nate, Thank you so much for your great review on our spacious, comfortable, Casa#111!! We hope to welcome you back again in the future!!-Knutson & Associates, Property Management
Reviewed by: Josephine N. recommends this property. Stayed for 10 days in March, 2015 There were some things I liked about this condo - it is on the ocean, has nice barbecue area, salt water pool, pleasant patio adjoining unit, lovely gardens and well equipped kitchen. There were, however, a number of negatives. The condo we got was not the same as the picture on the website - the picture on the website showed a much newer condo with a balcony and our condo was older,shabbier and on the ground floor. The condo was not as clean as I would have liked - the kitchen floor was dirty not to a glance, but wipe it with wet paper towel and look at dirt on towel! There was a lot of hair in the drain in the tub of one of the bathrooms, some towels had stains and taps in bathroom were not clean. We also had some problems with the phone - received one call and then couldn't make any outgoing calls. I emailed Knutson twice about this and got no reply. Were we doing something wrong or is the phone not working - I never found out. We did complain about a noisy fan and this was fixed. Next time I would choose a condo closer to downtown Kona I think. I would recommend this building with the above reservations. I might stay there again, but not in Unit 111.

Reviewed by: Michael B. does not recommend this property. Stayed for 17 days in November, 2014 WE HAD RESERVED THE UNIT FOR A MONTH UPON MOVING IN DISCOVERED THAT THE UNIT HAD A VERY BAD SMELL THAT RESEMBLED MOLD. WE TRIED TO MAKE THE BEST OF IT BY USING AIR FRESHENERS, AND SEVERAL OTHER ITEMS THAT DIDN'T WORK. THE UNIT WAS ADVERTISED TO HAVE THE INTERNET "ROUTER" WHICH WAS NOT WITHIN THE UNIT AND THERE WAS NO CONNECTION AT ALL. CHECKED WITH MANAGEMENT EVERY DAY FOR TWO WEEKS TO FIX THE PROBLEM, THEY ONLY MADE EXCUSES, NOTHING WAS DONE.WHEN WE DECIDED TO LEAVE TO ANOTHER PLACE THEN THEY SAID THAT IT WOULD BE CONNECTED WITHIN THE NEXT SEVERAL DAYS, WE WAITED AND NOTHING WAS DONE, TOLD THEM THAT WE WERE STILL GOING TO LEAVE AND KNUTSON & ASSOCIATES NEVER ATTEMPTED TO COMPENSATE US IN ANYWAY. TOLD US IF THEY CAN RE-RENT THE UNIT MAYBE WE MIGHT GET SOME MONEY BACK.CHECKED IF THEY TRIED TO RE-RENT ANOTHER LIE.ONCE THEY GET YOUR MONEY THEY DON'T GIVE A **** IF SOMETHING IS WRONG WITH THE UNIT THERE NOT GOING TO TRY AND FIX THE PROBLEM.THE UNIT IS CURRENTLY UP FOR SALE THE REALTOR TOLD US THAT THE UNIT HAS A BAD SMALL OF MOLD AND IS NOT BEING TAKEN CARE OF BY THE RENTAL COMPANY. DON'T RENT ANY VACATION RENTALS FROM KNUTSON & ASSOCIATES YOUR ONLY GET RIPPED OFF.
Property Manager Response: Response from Knutson & Associates Aloha Michael, We understand you were given a extremely discounted rate to assist you in your transition to Hawaii. When you reserved the condo, you were reserving it for a short period of time, not as a vacation rental. The condo does not have internet, and we tried everything we could to get Oceanic installed during your time. We did not offer excuses, we did our very best to accommodate you, and you left before we could solve the problem. We always try to fix the problem, and we believe your reaction is a bit harsh to say the least. We have been in business here for over 35 years, this review is one of the harshest we have ever come across- Blake Kessner, Property Manager
Erin O. from Vancouver, BC recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in October, 2014 We rented Casa De Emdeko 111 for the week of ironman. It was a convenient place to stay for Ironman week, being a couple of km's from the main Kona strip and with the run course right out front. The condo itself is large and comfortable for 4 people. Whilst somewhat basic inside and dated, given Ironman week prices and location, it was good value for money. The outdoor space is nice and well maintained including several bbqs and seating areas. The salt water ocean front pool and fresh water pool was well used. The one complaint we have is with the property managers, Knutson and Associates. We approached them the day we arrived because there was no wifi within our condo, despite being listed on the rental ad. As international guests, we were dependent on wifi for Ironman activities and organization, as well as ongoing work commitments. We approached the property managers office everyday, sometimes multiple times a day after they failed to follow up with us when promised. Throughout our 8 night stay this issue was never resolved. We received varying stories from that the previous tenant had stolen the modem, to the internet provider having removed it for technical reasons. We were told twice that someone would be around to install a new modem and this was never completed or followed up as to why it was not. We understand sometimes these issues arise out of the owners or property managers control, however the response and resolution of this issue was a complete failure. Other than having no wifi and the poor service from Knutson and Associates we had a great stay in this condo and in Kona.
Property Manager Response: Response from Knutson & Associates Aloha Erin, Thank you so much for taking the time to review Casa 111. We want you to know we absolutely did our very best to accommodate your concern about the Wifi. We were trying to find out why the router may have possibly been taken, as that condo normally does offer Wifi. We worked hard to get a new replacement in time for you, but unfortunately it did not come in time during your reservation. We understand it's a major inconvenience, but we offered access of our personal wifi to you, as well as other options you had. It's unfortunate to hear you believe our service is less than exceptional, as we pride ourselves on our service & integrity. We would love another opportunity to truly exceed your expectations if you decide to return to Kona. We would love to do whatever we can to make a next stay in Kona, absolutely perfect. Wifi is now active in the condo. We hope to have another chance to make up for the inconvenience.
A guest from 1, 1 recommends this property. Stayed for 43 days in January, 2014 The Property Mangement is exceptional. Have also heard this comment from others! There is a large amount of quests who come back every year and we come also from Canada. Unit #111 is nicely decorated with everything you need and comfortable. Lots of room and great with 2 bedrooms and 2 baths. A very quiet Property.
Reviewed by: A guest recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in October, 2013 Lovely to return to Casa De Emdeko again. It's such a beautifully maintained property with a wonderfully relaxing feel. A great spot for the Ironman.
A guest from Boulder, CO recommends this property. Stayed for 19 days in September, 2010 great location, great salt water pool and common area. Our condo needed a little TLC. The walls were dirty and needed paint or a thorough cleaning. Maybe some new caulk etc. Just looked a bit weathered and wasn't clean when we checked in. But once we cleaned it up it was well stocked and we had a fun vacation.
Property Manager Response: Response from Knutson & Associates Aloha Lisa,I am so glad that you had a good time. I hope we will see you again soon!Mandi
