Located in the plush Casa de Emdeko Complex just off Alii Drive, Lea Casa sets high expectations early on with its swaths of tropical foliage and the calls of native birds. The complex affords its guests plenty of amenities, including two pools (one in the garden and one oceanfront!), a courtyard filled with grills, dining tables and chairs and even a stretch of quiet beach for you to enjoy.
Lea Casa offers spacious one-bedroom suites that can sleep up to four. All suites come equipped with a full kitchen, furnished balcony or patio, air- conditioning, TV and DVD player, stereo system and Wi-Fi access. Pale colors, tropical prints and island-inspired furniture service to remind you that you're really in paradise!
Kailua-Kona is well suited to those with an adventurer's spirit - hiking, windsurfing, water-skiing, mountain biking, deep-sea fishing, scuba diving and snorkeling are unforgettable experiences on Big Island! Be sure to check out the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, including the Kilauea volcano - these stunning volcanoes are just a 2.5-hour drive from the resort. The town of Kailua offers a small village atmosphere as well as a variety of boutiques and restaurants for those looking for a more laid-back afternoon.

Stayed here on an RCI exchange in 2007. Most of the units appear to be whole ownership (a good thing) and the full time owners are very friendly. After hours check-in is weird with a keybox on the door thing -- at least in 2007 for RCI exchange. As this is not really a "resort" there is no real person at a "front desk" after hours. But the manager lives on site and was helpful and polite after hours (even though we interrupted his dinner!)
Location is great. Close to all the good stuff in Kona. You definitely need a car. While the property is oceanfront do not expect a beach. After all, this is the Big Island which is basically a big volcanic rock! If you want BEACHfront go to MAUI! Nevertheless, the oceanfront area was nice and snorkeling is possible (and good) SOMETIMES when the surf is very low. Otherwise, the oceanfront is for viewing only (which is OK with me -- MaiTais recommended!).
Well maintained property. Room was spacious, clean, well maintained and well equipped. Pool was in good shape. Would gladly stay here again. Good value for the money!
We stayed at #127. It was very lucky that we ran into the groundskeeper who explained where the unit was in the complex (it's also an apartment bldg). Apparently, the manager is in the office bldg in front of the complex, but we never saw her. There is a key lockbox on the front door of condo to pick up the keys. No housekeeping service is provided. There is a launderette in the complex.
The saltwater pool was closed for repairs during our stay. The condo is ocean front but the "beach" is all black lava rocks. Not very suitable for swimming. The nearest swimming beach is called Magic Sands, it's about 3 miles away.
Best beach for snorkeling is 4 miles away at the Outrigger resort area.
The unit had 1 bdrm, 1 bath (located in the bdrm) a pullout couch in the LR. Nice sized kitchen. Very small, crammed with wicker furniture. I had to put some stuff out on the lanai to make room for kids stuff. Unit was very dated 70's style.
Best thing was the lanai right next to the freshwater pool. Lush tropical garden with birds. Good for coffe in the am. Actually, it's the kitchen table too. Beautiful sunsets from the sea wall. Good bbq area by pool. There is a nice deli/foodstore in front of the complex to pickup warm food.
Overall, the location wasn't too convenient to downtown Kona. A car is a must to do anything there. The unit was pretty worn but at least it had ac.
If I go back to Kona, I'd stay at the Outrigger or at a resort in downtown area. The Hilton in Waikoloa Beach is outstanding.
