Papohaku Beach house description

This spacious BEACHFRONT home is located on a private, gated 5-acre estate sized parcel on the island’s remote West End, ideally situated DIRECTLY ON DIXIE MARU BEACH, the ONLY SAFE SWIMMING BEACH on the island all year long. On Molokai you will find unspoiled beaches up and down the coastline, but this is everyone's favorite because of the ideal swimming conditions in this small secluded beach cove. While others advertise beach front, no one can boast of having ocean front that is swimmable all year long. Why settle for just a beach when you can be the ONLY ONE to have your own spot in the sun where you can swim too. Molokai is friendly locals with true “aloha spirit,” and a relaxed lifestyle unique to the island of Molokai. Unobstructed by development, you are invited to explore the “friendly isle” and create your own dream vacation in a true Hawaiian paradise.

This 4-bedroom house is beautifully furnished, offers all the comforts of home, and is ideally suited for large families and for entertaining. The large living room with its high ceilings provides a wonderful family gathering area, which leads to a 650 square foot open air deck that is perfect for sunbathing, whale watching, spectacular sunsets, BBQ's and eating under the stars. There are two plantation teak dining sets to accommodate a private dinner party. Enjoy expansive views of the Pacific Ocean and of Diamond Head and the Honolulu city lights across the Kaiwi Channel. Off the deck is a 1-acre lawn which is ideal for kids’ games and other outdoor sports and activities. The smartly configured kitchen with updated appliances makes mealtimes a breeze. Directly off the living room is a 775 square foot enclosed lanai which provides a comfortable area for dining, reading, puzzles/board games or simply relaxing on the comfortable teak patio furniture. Spacious bedrooms, all of which offer incredible ocean views, enable you to unwind and recharge following the day’s activities as you fall asleep to the soothing sounds of the ocean just outside your windows.

During the day, Molokai offers something for everyone: miles of unpaved trails provide endless challenges for avid mountain bikers. Ocean-lovers will find spectacular swimming, body surfing, snorkeling, fishing, kayaking, windsurfing, scuba diving and standup paddle boarding. And if you enjoy surfing, the waves here can reach world class conditions during certain times of the year. For hikers, there are hikes to deserted beaches, hikes into the lush, tropical Halawa valley and waterfalls on the East side of the island, hikes inland around the Nature Conservancy’s Kamakou Preserve, hikes overlooking the dramatic North Shore (featuring the world’s tallest sea cliffs), and hikes overlooking (or down to) the Kalaupapa National Historical Park (historical leper colony), to name a few!
Grocery stores, restaurants, bakeries, etc. are all located in the town of Kaunakakai – approximately 30 minutes away by car – which is the center of activity on the island. On Saturday mornings you can browse the Kaunakakai outdoor marketplace for local crafts and delicious locally-grown foods. Molokai's newest addition is Kumu Farms, where you can buy locally grown organic fruits and vegetables, along with Molokai grass fed beef, and the best pesto you have ever tasted. A touch of Tuscany awaits you. Along the south shore you can still find ancient coastal fishponds, originally built for Hawaiian chiefs and kings. Maunaloa Town is located 10 minutes away, where you will find a General Store, Post Office, the Big Wind Kite Factory and a neighborhood of plantation-style homes, reminiscent of “old Hawaii,” surrounded by the undeveloped ranchlands owned by the Molokai Ranch. It is just a short plane ride from Honolulu, Maui or the island of Hawaii to Molokai’s Ho’olehua Airport.

After a day or two of exploring, you will come to agree that you have the BEST SPOT ON THE ISLAND.
You can swim, bike (bike rental available in town), sunbathe, and watch some of the most fabulous sunsets over Waikiki from your lanai. It can't get any better! This is 'No Ka Oi' as the Hawaiians say..'the best'!

After visiting the island I’m sure you will agree that Molokai is the world’s best kept secret! No crowds, no traffic, no stress. Molokai – an island suspended in time. Molokai is as the locals say:
'Mo-Bettah'!

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  The location directly on famous Dixie Maru Beach is unique to only two houses. This is the only one of the two that is situated to see the entire bay and beach from the house and lanai. This beach is the only real safe swimming beach all year long on Molokai. Popahaku Beach is beautiful but dangerous for swimming much of the year. Most people find their way to this secluded cove for swimming, snorkeling, and watching the sunsets.
