Papohaku Beach house description
Sometimes, paradise is best appreciated for what’s missing.
On Molokai, for example, you won’t find traffic lights, elevators, neon signs or fast food wars. The pristine stretches of white sand beaches are just like the island’s streets: uncrowded and blissfully quiet. On Molokai, nothing’s taller than a palm tree. Molokai is one of those rare destinations where time has stood still.
Recently completed (2007), the house is situated on 6 acres overlooking Papohaku Beach with a commanding view of Oahu from across the Kaiwi Channel. Built in the fashion of a Hawaiian pole house, each room opens onto the wraparound lanaii through expanses of glass doors that take in the spectacular view. Dark hardwood floors throughout contrast the brightly painted walls and high ceilings to create an open, airy environment. Relax under the stars and take in the spectacular view of Oahu across the channel in our jacuzzi/hot tub nestled in with the banana trees on the second floor lanai. All the necessities of home are included with an emphasis on relaxing and unwinding.
This is the west side where Kaluakoi is Molokai's principle resort area. You'll find numerous surf spots here for winter swells while summer swells hit the east side of the island. This is a mountain bikers paradise with trails everywhere. A ten minute walk puts you on Papohaku Beach, the largest white sand beach (3 miles long) in Hawaii.
Here you can literally walk for miles and not see another set of footprints. Maonaloa Town is a ten minute drive where you will find a charming setting surrounding a General Store, Kite Shop, and curio shops.
We have set our rates low in order to attract clients to our newly built home in paradise. We are proud of our home and are confident that you will not be disappointed. Feel free to contact us with your questions or additional information. Manager/Caretaker on site.
Aloha and Mahalo.

This was our first time to Molokai...but after staying here, it will not be our last. This home is AWESOME! The kitchen has everything you need, the rooms are very nicely appointed, and the views from every room are breath-taking. This is first class! Wish I was there now!

Our family had one of the best vacations we've ever had on Molokai - it seems like I miss it every day!! This house was absolutely amazing, and waking up in it and coming back to it every day made our trip to an unspoiled island so much fun. Molokai is not for everyone, but for someone who wants great beaches, wonderful people, beauty wherever you travel on the island, no crowds, peace and quiet, this is the place to go. Rob, the caretaker, was wonderful and really helpful. Again, the house is AMAZING. Billy

Week of alone time
Week of alone time
This was a very nice retreat home. My husband and I stayed here before we joined a big group in Kauai. We found it very relaxing, laid back, romantic, quiet and very comfortable. Loved the hot tub with great views of lots of rainbows. Loved the layout of the house and the sliding doors to the deck. It was close to several nice beaches and far enough away from other houses. Molokia is a non tourist island, so don't plan on going if you want that kind of atmosphere. Check for times when places are open, because they don't have McDonalds. Check out the Paddlers Inn bar and restuarant, we didn't eat there until our last night and we really enjoyed it, the people and band.

Top-notch home with wonderful living room that opens to the beautiful outdoors. Plus, listen to the ocean waves from the master bedroom! 5-star furnishings and decorating. Quick access to amazing beaches such as Kepuhi and Papohaku beaches. Rob, the onsite caretaker, was very informative. We suggest you explore the island during the day and enjoy this luxurious property for a remarkable sunset and grill-your-own dinner in the evenings!

We had a wonderful time at the Pa Loa Hale and would highly recommend this beautiful home to others. The beach is only a 5 minute drive away and the hot tub is oh-so-relaxing, especially under the canopy of stars at night! We hope to return again soon! Aloha, Steve & Lisa

An architectural masterpiece
An architectural masterpiece
The home near Papohaku Beach was totally delightful, an expertly crafted residence with fine attention to woodworking detail and tastefully decorated throughout. There was plenty of space for 6 of us, and we loved the huge, fully supplied kitchen and panoramic views of the ocean. The location was quite convenient, close to the ocean yet far enough from neighbors to ensure privacy. The covered lanai was our favorite spot, excellent for relaxing with a book or enjoying the afternoon sun. The home had everything one could need, including a hot tub, outdoor shower, fine music system, even cable TV and DVDs (which were seldom used as we spent most of our time adventuring outdoors). The caretaker Laura was a gem -- quite helpful and insightful in helping us plan our excursions, and we learned a lot about the local fauna and flora from her. Our only regret is that we couldn't have stayed longer, and certainly plan to return again in the future. Mahalo!

Our group of 3 couples had a wonderful 12 night stay here. We enjoyed cooking in the spacious, well stocked kitchen, relaxing on the lanai with a view if the ocean, and the beds were comfy. The caretaker, Laura, is most helpful. It was fun to explore Molokai. We snorkeled with captain chris at fish&dive, caught some mahimahi and saw whales with captain mike of fun hogs. We hiked down to kalaupapa peninsula, and up again, then up to the falls on the east side (talk to the flower farm guy at the farmer's market on Saturday am about combining a hike with a tour of his flower farm). auntie Teri in the bookstore in town was a good source of info. Dixie Maru beach, about a 5. Minute drive, was our favorite for swimming. We loved wave watching and shell hunting at papohaku beach, a short walk. We would probably rent a 4 wheel drive vehicle next time, not necessary to get to house, but some beaches would be more accessible with one.

Awesome Thanksgiving retreat
Awesome Thanksgiving retreat
Brought the family over on the Ferry from Maui to relax for the Thanksgiving Holiday. This was hands down one of the best get aways we have had in a long time. From the comfortable amenities, to the aloha and kindness that Rob (caretaker) showed us we couldn't have asked for more. Molokai is so relaxing that it is just so hard to leave! I will reccomend this home to anyone I know visiting the islands and my family will certainly be back!!

Love this house! It is beautiful and has everything you could need for a comfortable, very relaxing stay. We recently spent a week there and would jump at the chance to return. The front door opens to a great room with hardwood floors, high ceilings and sliding glass wall that opens out to the lanai and a beautiful view of open land and ocean in the distance. Preparing meals in the kitchen was a pleasure. It is part of the open, spacious great room and well stocked with useful cookware and utensils. The lanai is perfect for lounging, barbequing, having meals and soaking in the hot tub. The impressive sound system can be enjoyed indoors and out. The master suite, bedrooms, bathrooms, living and dining areas are all very comfortable and clean. The house is located in an upscale neighborhood with gorgeous beaches just a short drive away. The owners were quick to answer any questions we had before and during our stay and Rob, the on-site caretaker was friendly and helpful. Verizon cell service and wi-fi worked very well. Overall, our stay at PaLoa Hale was a wonderfully relaxing experience!

Owner response: Mahalo Kathy for your feedback. We are committed to providing the best possible accommodations for our guests as they experience the beauty that is Molokai'.

Such as the upgraded sound system, the open and airy floor plan, the hot tub under the stars, and the well equipped kitchen. We hope your travel plans include a return trip to Molokai' and Pa Lao Hale. We would love to host you again. Mahalo nui loa, Steve and Vicki
Awesome Birthday celebration with family, kids and friends
Awesome Birthday celebration with family, kids and friends
Thank you Steve for the lovely visit this March! We had a great time and felt very lucky to have a special, relaxing, luxurious birthday at your beautiful home. We love the open feeling, the huge lanai where we enjoyed outdoor dining while watching colorful sunsets, the hot tub beneath bright white stars (even shooting stars one night!) the outdoor shower, all the nice newer kitchen utensils, the comfortable rooms and even the games available during the one or two rainy days. This was the perfect location for my friends and our small kids . . .every morning after a leisurely breakfast, we'd head to the beach (Dixie Maru, so kid-friendly) and then back to the house for lunch. Chatting with House Rob was a nice extra as he gave us good local tips. Then off on an afternoon adventure, whether it was a visit to Kumu Farms for local jams, jellies, veggies and lotions or into town for shopping or maybe pizza. The Dive Shop is fun to look around. Evenings included, usually yummy BBQ'd dinner on the deck, watching enormous moths fluttering about in the warm air, the purples and oranges of a Hawaii sunset and laughing as the gecho's scurried away. It was especially gratifying to enjoy a special birthday with our kids, who loved the trip, and our close friends. We are in love with Molokai and finding and staying at your house only added to the special memory. Thank you again!

Why the Owner Chose Papohaku Beach:
We chose the island of Molokai for it's beauty and simple lifestyle. It has all that Hawaii has to offer. It is a eco-naturalists paradise and is virtually unspoiled. The locals are very friendly and helpful and the pace is very leisurely and laid back. The house is situated on 6 acres of land on the west side in the Papohaku area. We love the Hawaii that exists away from the tourist areas.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Complete peace and quiet with the closest neighbor 1000 feet away. The house (hale) is newly built and situated for unsurpassed views. The interior is finished with exotic hardwood floors, granite counter tops throughout and a fully stocked gourmet kitchen with an incredible view. The rear of the house opens to the lanai through a 25 foot sliding glass wall and all bedrooms have sliding patio doors onto the lanai. At night you relax under the incredible stars in our hot tub nestled amongst the banana trees on the lanai. Our goal was to build a retreat where one could find peace as well as adventure in a unique setting.
