Our unit is not your typical 'vacation rental'. First and foremost we completed a total remodel. There is travertine stone throughout including the bathroom shower/tub and also extending outside on the lanai. Completely new kitchen cabinets with granite tile countertops throughout. For those who like sparkeling clean drinking water and ice there is a reverse osmosis water filter with a tap at the kitchen sink as well as piped to the automatic ice maker. The Bedroom has a nice pillow-top, king-sized bed with high-thread-count soft linens. The kitchen is equipped as a home with quality cooking gear, dishes and glassware and plenty of sharp knives, etc. There is art work on the walls and cordless phone.
We have the unit cleaned after each guest and spruced up before each guest if it has been more than a week between guests. We also have a regular pest control service so you do not have to deal with high numbers of cockroaches, etc. which we have found to be noticeably present in many other 'vacation rentals' on the island.
The Wavecrest facility is located on the southeast side of the island 13 miles from the main town of Kaunakakai. We face Maui and Lanai which are eight and four miles away respectively across the Maui channel. This places it in the perfect balance of weather to be tropical but not too rainy and not dry at all. Every other condominium facility on the island is located in much dryer locations.
Wavecrest is by far the best maintained facility on the island and the grounds are kept neat and beautiful all year round by a full-time staff of gardeners and maintenance people. Being a little further from town, there are very few families who stay there with young children who can tend to get a little noisy around the pool. Most people with families stay at Molokai Shores in town or at the dryer west-end facilities.
Molokai is a wonderful place on this planet to golf, snorkel, relax, and many other activities which involve taking in the beauty and solitude of this relatively unspoiled island paradise.
In case you are not aware, Wavecrest Resort is the nicest and best maintained condominium facility on the island and we have been told many times that our unit is the most nicely furnished and best located one-bedroom unit available for rent in the complex.
This is a nicely equipped, one-bedroom, ground-floor unit located 100 yards from the water. It has an unobstructed view of the ocean as well as looking out on the beautifully maintained gardens and grounds. The furnishings are nice, comfortable, and clean. It sleeps three in one king bed and a nice sofa which can accomodate a 6 ft. person for comfortable sleeping..
The kitchen is well equipped with quality cooking utensils, nice dishes, glassware, and a good assortment of spices (not your typical vacation rental stuff).
Sitting on your lanai, you have spectacular views of two islands - not to mention the phenomenal whale watching (in season, which is late December through the end of April).
It is a beautiful 13-mile drive from town (Kaunakakai) to Wavecrest Resort. This resort is wonderfully quiet, even during the day. There is a beautifully tiled pool at the shoreline with magnificent views of the islands of Maui, Lanai, and Kaho'olawe as well as the majestic mountains rising up to the crest of the island.
An ancient fish pond in front of the complex makes calm, shallow water for about 200 yards out to the reef. Great snorkeling, kayaking, and fishing are there at the reef directly in front of the facility. Good surfing and body surfing can be found nearby. Fabulous hiking to lush waterfalls and historic sacred Hawaiian heiaus is within a few minutes drive.
There is a beautifully scenic, 18-hole, golf course (currently closed) 40 minutes away on the west end of the island as well as a nine-hole course which is 25 minutes away up on the mountain by the coffee plantation and macadamia nut farm (both of which have 'low key' tours available).
By the pool are nice barbecues and a tiled, food preparation counter with a sink. The large cabana by the pool is furnished with very comfortable furniture and tables with an extensive library of paperback books to get lost in.
From the lanai of Molokai Magic you step out onto a large, well manicured, common lawn area. By the pool is a beautiful palm-studded lawn with lounge chairs. This is a great place to have a glass of wine as the day wanes and the lights of Maui and Lanai twinkle to life across the channel. The two tennis courts a short walk from this unit as well as the shuffleboard court by the pool round out the Wavecrest Resort's great appeal.
There is an open view of both the West end of Maui and all of the island of Koho'olawe from the living room. When you step out onto the lawn you can also see the East end of Lana'i...moreless
Condo sits back about 100 yds. from water so it is a little sheltered from the consistent trade winds.
