Property description

Ka Hale Ola (House of Life) is a designer condo - high end appliances and furniture inside, and total beauty outside - for a bargain price. The view from your lanai is directly out on the ocean. In the morning experience a fabulous sunrise from the privacy of your terrace. Stay to watch the whales frolic in the ocean or, a few steps from your door, enjoy a beautiful pool and cabana, again directly on the ocean shore. At night enjoy a romantic view of the lights on Maui's shore while listening to the sound of the waves below you.

The condo features California king pillow-top bed with 1000 count linens, granite counter tops in the full kitchen, marble bathroom, high quality linens, professional cookware including ricecooker, full kitchen with top of the line appliances, gallery quality Hawaiian artwork, designer lighting and ceiling fans, laptop with free wireless Internet, two cable TV's (32' and 22' flat screen) , VCR, 2 DVDs, CD, recreational equipment (tennis, snorkeling).

Enjoy the lush and spacious tropical grounds of the resort complex and visit the outdoor library, pool, and tennis courts, or go exploring to the nearby beaches where you can swim, snorkel, or kayak. If you are lucky, you might even spot a rare Monk seal sunning on the beach.

Molokai also offers a wonderful mule ride to the old leper colony with stunning Cliffside ocean views all the way down - a trip unique in the world that you will talk about for years to come!

Amenities: Unobstructed views of neighboring islands and fabulous sunrises and sunsets. Complex includes extremely beautiful grounds, excellent pool, cabana, tennis courts, and outdoor library.

Condo is equipped with everything to make your stay comfortable including laptop, California king size bed and 2 TV's.

Laundry facilities are available down the hall. Recreational equipment is stored in the condo, including tennis rackets and balls and snorkeling equipment. Books, games, puzzles, CDs, and DVDs are provided in the condo. Internet access is available. There is an on-site property manager.

Don't miss the Saturday morning market, where you can shop for your veggies, and the Friday night get together and sing-along at the Molokai Hotel, where you'll meet just about everyone who lives on Molokai.

Area: Molokai is an island that will accommodate your desire to 'veg out,' if you choose, but also to enjoy many outdoor activities. Beauty surrounds you, with no shopping malls or high rises. Everyone knows everyone here - that's why it's call the 'friendly isle.'
