Recent Molokai reviews

  • Tranquillity and Peace

    "This little cottage is without a doubt the most tranquil and lovely spot I have stayed at in Hawaii. I've rented six different VRBO houses, one on Molokai and on the other Islands. And, while I've loved those vacations, this was absolutely the loveliest setting with wonderful 'neighbors' far enough away from the residence so if you wanted to, you could go days without seeing another person. Lovely seclusion at the beach too. We took the kayaks out at dawn in the peace and watched the sun rise up from the ocean. The beach and reef are awesome, and the snorkeling we were discovering at the end was the best we had seen at Molokai. Straight out and to the left before the breakers. We even saw a little seahorse on our trip back in. Lovely waters. If you love peace, and want a place to recharge your 'batteries'... a retreat.. this is the place for you. It is an adventure, too, with the fresh fruit and fish that James and Lauren share with the cottage tenant... and be sure to ask James to get some fresh shrimp for you if you like it... the best I have ever had."

  • Perfect!

    "We absolutely loved staying at the Hilltop Cottage, we were lucky to have 10 nights here. The cottage had everything we needed, very comfortable bed, kitchen well equipped and the lanai, where we spent a lot of time just watching the ever changing sky, the egrets soaring above the green below and the whales spraying and breeching, the lights of Maui at night and the stars like we've never seen them before! Good snorkeling and swimming beaches close by. Not a huge trek to drive into town for supplies, which we always enjoyed. After a week here we felt like part of the Moloka'i Ohana! For anyone who truly wants to get away, we found the Hilltop Cottage absolutely ideal and we hope to return very, very soon. Mahalo Kehau"

  • Memorable Molokai and Ke Nani Kai #115

    "My wife and I stayed here for the month of November, 2014. We had a marvelous time. The condo is exactly as advertised. Fully and beautifully equipped, really comfy bed, and a smart TV with a gazillion channels. And Molokai; well, it’s the friendly isle, with a population of about 8,000 and no traffic lights. Where else can you take a most-memorable mule ride down sea cliffs to a National Historic Site? If you want the mob scene and a more hectic pace, there’s always Maui. If you want peace and relaxation, then this is the place. Rose provides the most thorough package of info imaginable: what to do, where to go, who to call--it was fabulous."

  • Aloha Beach House and Moloka'i---a perfect match!

    "Stayed 10 days at the Aloha Beach House and it could not have been better. The house really is steps away from the ocean. What the pictures of the interior don't show is that you're only seeing the bottom half of the rooms. There are wonderful vaulted ceilings especially in the great room (living, dining, kitchen) and master bedroom which provide light and air. It's instant therapy! You just feel lighter and happier. The house is located on the east end of the island, which is wetter. We enjoyed (probably because we're from Oregon) the rain several nights and the variable weather. The ever-changing views of the ocean, Maui and Lana'i were fantastic! And the most unbelievable thing was you could stand in the ocean at low tide a few hundred feet from the beach and see absolutely no one else in the water or on the beach. Hard to believe in this noisy, crowded world. Do your research on Moloka'i. No real night life and no 24/7 businesses but an incredible place to visit. And the beach house is highly recommended. Washer/dryer was enormous plus and house equipped with pretty much everything you'll need."

Molokai Travel Tips

Molokai: Hawaii's Secret Paradise

To many people, the attraction of visiting Hawaii is the glitz and glamour of the many stylish hotels. Indeed, they create a great vibe but sometimes it's nice to experience how the islands felt when there were just beaches, palm trees and tracts of tropical forests. The island of Molokai is one of the least developed of the Hawaiian Islands. The residents are proud of the natural and cultural heritage that has been preserved here, and once you've spent a little while on Molokai, you'll soon appreciate why. Molokai vacation rentals are suitable for the traveler who enjoys nature, prefers to get away from the tourist bustle, and does not need modern conveniences to be entertained. It's a great place for that romantic getaway, anniversary celebration or quiet family holiday where you can spend some quality time together exploring the island's many treasures.

A Home Away From Home at Molokai Condos

Staying in a vacation home on Molokai, you can get a true glimpse of Hawaiian lifestyle. There is seldom any traffic on the roads and a great way to explore is to hire bicycles and ride along the coast. You'll soon find yourself sharing the island greeting of "Aloha" with people you pass by. Most of the homes are fully equipped and all you need to bring along is your groceries which you can stock up on at one of the local stores. Compared to some of the more developed islands, accommodations on Molokai are much more affordable which means you can stretch your travel budget and stay a little longer.

Things to see and do on Molokai

If you arrive at Molokai by boat from Maui, you will disembark at the Kaunakakai Warf which is the main harbor and marina on the island. Aside from regular ferries, many charter companies operate from here. You can book a leisurely sunset cruise or a deep sea fishing excursion. You could also go scuba diving or enjoy watching the humpback whales play in the waves in season. If you happen to be at the wharf on a summer weekend, you can watch the locals in their six-person canoe races. There's a great vibe as the crowds cheer on the paddlers and teams fight it out for victory.

Kalaupapa is a special reserve that was once a leper colony. It is spectacularly beautiful and there are amazing views from the cliffs. Access is restricted but you can join an organized tour and experience the history and natural beauty of the area. Most tours include a hike and mule ride as you explore the various historic sites. Father Damien was a priest who dedicated his life to caring for the lepers and the area is a memorial to his faithful service.

There are several other preserves on Molokai where you can go hiking. Some are on private land and access can only be gained if accompanied by a registered guide on an organized tour. Many people view a hike to the Hipuapua and Moa'ula Falls in the Halawa Valley as a highlight of their trips. The falls cascade down through two large rock pools. You can enjoy a swim in the lower pool but only if you abide by a local custom. Legend has it that the pool is home to a large lizard--a "mo'o." You need to first ask permission to swim by floating a ti leaf on the pool. If it floats, you may swim but if it sinks, it means the mo'o does not want you to swim and you should not enter.

The beaches are one of Molokai's greatest attractions. Beautiful, white palm-fringed sands create the perfect setting for that romantic moment. There are many beachfront properties to choose from when browsing for Molokai lodging, like Kaluakoi oceanfront condos. Imagine sitting on the deck and watching the waves gently roll onto the beach as the sun dips below the horizon.

Getting to Molokai

Hawaii's main airport is Honolulu on the island of Oahu. Molokai is located between Oahu and Maui and just a short ferry ride across the bay. Once on the island, you can get around easily by taking a taxi, renting a car or hiring a bicycle.
