About Cathie Becker

Picture of us in Kona on our wedding day (Summer Solstice, 2013). I purchased the property with a friend in 2002 but now John and I have full ownership. We currently live in Corvallis, Oregon, where I work as a teacher and John is retired. Any free time is spent in Lake Tahoe, where I spent most of my adult life, or in Kona. While in Kona, and when not attending to the fix-it list, we spend most of our time bicycling, golfing, snorkeling, exploring out-of-the-way snorkeling spots and preparing fabulous meals for oceanfront dining with our friends.

Cathie Becker purchased this condo in 2002

Why Cathie Becker chose Kailua-Kona

Location, location, location! Beauty, serenity, ease in meeting new friends.

What makes this condo unique

I love our private beach. There's nothing like getting up early and sitting on the sea wall with a cup of coffee and binoculars..watching for the whales and dolphins. Of course, in the evening it's the same thing, to watch the sunset, only it's a Mai Tai!

Guestbook comments from the owner

I spent 10 days in this lovely condo! The property is lush and beautiful, it's close enough to town to stroll to dinner. The best part was that I could relax on the beach or lanai with my book, or I could go and socialize with owners and guests - you could never feel lonely here, yet you have all the privacy in the world! The condo is very well stocked - even including beach towels and a boogie board! Thank you so much Diane for providing me a quiet, relaxing vacation!

Mornings by the ocean

  • 5 of 5

My sweetie and I had a lovely stay at #115. The condo was well-stocked with all the basics we might have needed. It's clear that the owners love this place of theirs by the ocean, and it made our stay here very comfortable. We especially loved hearing the ocean at night, the short walk to the ocean wall to sit and enjoy our morning coffee, and the wonderful ocean-side pool. It was a nice oasis in which to begin and end each day of our Big Island adventures. Thank you!

Great place in a nice complex.

  • 5 of 5

The condo was clean and had literally ALL the essentials. The bed was comfortable and the complex was quiet. The only heads up is there really is not an ocean view from the condo or the lanai. However, you are steps away from a beautiful salt water pool that is on the edge of the ocean. We will stay here again.

Owner's Response: Thanks Sean! We are happy to hear you found everything you needed. No, although the unit is just steps from the ocean and outdoor dining area, it does not have an ocean view from the unit or lanai (unlike the second and third floor units). We found landscaping (instead of views) offers comfortable privacy and not dealing with stairs is a plus for us. When/if you return, we should be living on the island (we are moving permanently next May) and hope to meet you! Mahalo for your kind review.

Condo #117

  • 4 of 5

We spent 6 wonderful weeks at Cathie and John's condo. All the fans made the condo very comfortable, we never had to turn the air conditioning on. Also the bedroom was very nice and spacious. Loved the walk-in shower in the bathroom and the double sinks. The kitchen was a little small and the dishwasher is in a bad location, but after a few days I got used to it. It is fully stocked with small appliances and since I like to cook it all came in handy. The only problem I had was with the stove. I had never cooked on an electric stove, so that was a challenge. My only negative was the vertical blinds of which I am not a fan. We are hoping to book the condo again in 2018. Both Cathie and John are great owners.

Perfect time

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent 6 wonderful days here and don't regret the decision to choose this condo as our Kona, Hawaii get away.

We found everything we could ever need to make our time here as easy and comfortable as possible. Everything you could ever need to make a great meal was right there and handy in the well equipped kitchen. The bed was very comfortable and we were able to adjust to the change quickly.

I loved having our breakfasts out on the Lanai every morning and then stroll through the gardens with my morning coffee and checking out the beach. It was always a very quiet and restful time.

The owners provided lots of helpful information and suggestions to make the most of our vacation. They were always readily available for us via email or phone if we had any questions or requests.

We loved the sound of the ocean as it lulled us to sleep every night.

The pools and beach at Casa de Emdeko were a pleasure to come back to each day of exploring. Everyone we met there were most kind and helpful to us.

It definitely is a place I would want to come back to if I come back to the Kona area of Hawaii again and would recommend it to others that are looking to find a place with all the comforts of home plus all the stuff that makes a Hawaiian vacation memorable. Aloha and Mahalo!

Owner's Response: Mahalo for the great review and we are pleased that you found everything you needed! One reason we choose this unit is because it is so close to the ocean where we could enjoy the powerful, hypnotic sounds of the Kona surf.
