If the glitz and the shopping of Waikiki is what you are looking for, Molokai is not for you. If you are looking for relaxation, privacy, solitude or a romantic getaway, then you'll love Molokai and our home. We think of it as Montana in the middle of the Pacific, without the winter. Our home is in the West End of Molokai. This is the dry side, which means most days are sunny. During the winter Molokai gets some great surf without the crowds and during the summer you'll find some of the best snorkeling in the world. Our home is on 5 acres of privacy though the surrounding 5000-10,000 acres seems like it is part of one continuous property since most other homes are out of view. The Molokai people are famous for their hospitality. Molokai is the old Hawaii and the people want to keep it that way. Respect the island and the people will respect you.

Our home was finished in 2007. Everything is essentially still new, clean and luxuriously finished yet very comfortable and relaxing. From granite counter tops, stainless steel appliances and exotic hardwood floors to the beautifully tiled master shower the home is first class. The home is 1500 sq ft on one floor with an additional 650 sq ft lanai that has about 400 sq ft covered. You'll spend most of your time on our lanai deck in our new all weather furniture. The panoramic view from the kitchen, living room and master bedroom is spectacular and the solitude is unique. The two guest rooms look out on the hills behind us, which is lovely. The kitchen is complete with cherry wood cabinets and everything you'll need to prepare and eat your meals. We normally eat in and enjoy the sunset from our deck. With a brand new BBQ you'll enjoy cooking many of your meals outside. If you like star-gazing, and the night is clear, The Milky Way looks like a cloud. With our telescope & binoculars you will see the night sky and be awed as never before.

From the living room, kitchen, master bedroom & lanai your panaramic view is of Oahu, Kaiaka Rock, Papohaku Beach and the surf breaking (if there is any). During clear days & at night you can see Honolulu, Waikiki, & Diamond Head. You can even see fireworks on Friday night & 4th of July.

Maunaloa Town is located 4 miles away and the grocery store is open each day, as is the Kite Factory & Gift Shop.
There are a number of excellent restaurants within 15-20 minutes that provide a variety of specialties. Grocery stores, with everything you'll need are in famous Kaunakakai Town which is about 20 minutes drive. There is a gift shop with chips, drinks, etc about 1 mile from our house at Kaluakoi's Kepuhi Beach Resort.

On Saturday mornings Kaunakakai hosts a fun farmers/crafts market and on Sunday evenings there is a Hula & Hawaiian music show at Paddler's Inn. Molokai has plenty of things to do or choose to do nothing at all. If you love the outdoors there is hiking, kayaking, scuba diving & snorkeling, bike riding, etc. It's also got some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. There is a good chance you'll find yourselves the only people on the beach....so if privacy, beauty, relaxation are things you are looking for we know you'll love our house and the Island.

We've been flying Hawaiian lately and from what we've experienced it is the best airline flying to Hawaii.
We do rent our totally rebuilt '91 Toyota truck with 2 wheel drive and 5 speed stick. It gets about 25 mpg. @ $35-$40 per day.
Other options: Mobettah Car Rentals at: 808 567-6381 or Tim at 808 552-0964. Not new, but they run and you'll fit into the local crowd. Otherwise, Alamo is the only rental agency at the airport.

Comments from renters:
Thank you, Thank you. We had three weeks of bliss staying at your wonderful home. The most relaxing vacation we've ever had and the best. Everything you ever need is in your home. Its perfect! Hopefully we'll be contacting you again in the future to stay at your home. Once again, THANK YOU!
Nancy and Gary (2010)
Thank you for letting us stay in your beautiful Molokai home. We really had alot of fun & especially enjoyed dinner and sunsets on the lanai. I love your house and would like to copy your blue tile master bath someday. This will be a great place to retire. Debby and I are leaving you a salt & pepper shaker that matches your pasta bowl. We hope you enjoy them. Aloha,
Marcia (2009)
Dear Bill & Julie,
Thank you so much for sharing your lovely home with us. We enjoyed every minute of relaxing on the lanai and taking in the stunning views. You truly have created a little piece of paradise here on Molokai. Mahalo, Lisa & Joe (2008)

Please call us for further details.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2007

                      About the owner: This photo was from a trip we took to the Dale Chihuli Museum in Seattle. 2013

                      Why the Owner Chose Papohaku Beach:
                      Actually this isn't our vacation home as much as our retirement home. We have been coming to Hawaii since the early 80's and we've visited all the islands. After looking at homes and land on Oahu, Maui and the Big Island we decided to try Molokai because we were looking for what Hawaii used to be rather than what it has become. We first visited Molokai in 1981 and we loved it then. We went back over the next few years but hadn't been there since 1987. In 2002 we went back and if it had changed we didn't see it. We fell in love with it again: the people, the beauty, the privacy and the simple life that exists there. Most people wear t-shirts, shorts & sandles. There is still no signal on the island. There is plenty to do if you like the outdoors: beach, hiking, riding a bike, snorkeling, scuba, fishing, relaxing, etc. If you prefer to read or relax there is no better place than on our Lanai.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Gorgeous views, complete privacy, waking to chirping birds. The beaches can be empty and all to yourself. Great snorkeling. We eat on our deck most nights. Relaxation!
