  • Amazing family home

    "This was our second time in a row to Molokai with our twin toddlers. We toured almost every home for rent on west end of island on our first trip, knowing we would return. In the end, we picked this home for a one month stay. It is INCREDIBLE. Your jaw will drop when you open the door....just as the description by the owner states...it is indeed, luxurious. We arrived on December 22nd from Calgary, Alberta. We were immediately met by the wonderful caretaker Connie Taylor who became our good friend throughout our stay. It's nice to have the caretaker right on property, because if you need anything....Connie was there to help out. The pictures don't even do the home justice. The big, open living room, tv room, kitchen, and dining room is gorgeous. It's so nice to be in the kitchen preparing meals, and having an unobstructed view outside and to the television. Not to mention, it's super roomy....which is a must with 3 year old twins running around! The bedding, towels, mattresses etc are high end and very cozy, but I have to say the highlight of this home is the lanai. It is truly spectacular. On top of that, the landscaping and grass area is stunning. A great place for kids to run! If you're a cook -- the kitchen is a dream. Tons of room and everything you need from a Vita-Mix, to a juicer etc. I honestly could go on and on -- but you'll want to experience it for yourself. We have fallen in love with Molokai. It is a true gem. We live very busy lives and wanted a quiet, peaceful, relaxing place to escape to, and Molokai is it. This home made our second trip there, unforgettable. Thank you to the owners and Connie for such a great vacation! Brienne, Jason, Bodie and Steele Glass High River, Alberta"

  • A perfect Get Away

    "Beautiful home; great layout for a family retreat and/or an escape with friends. Tastefully furnished with everything one would want for entertaining or a dream vacation. We loved the fact that wasn't a television in every room. There was time to think, read and explore. A fabulous place!!!"

  • The true Hawaii is Waialua Molokai

    "All I can say is 5 days in Molokai is just not enough if you love the real Hawaii. Molokai is truly the friendly Island. We loved staying at Peter's home and so did our service dog Russett. The sound of the ocean right at your back door makes all your cares just melt away. Everyone we met was so nice, the neighbors and especially Auntie Jo. We just loved getting up in the morning and walking along the beach. We also loved snorkeling and kayaking. We just can't wait to go back. Mahalo to Peter for sharing his little peace of paradise:) Aloha, Art, Marsha & Russett"

  • Loved being at this condo on Molokai!

    "My hubby and I stayed at this beautiful condo for 5 days, after a busy 9 days on Maui. It was a wonderful way to end our time in Hawaii. As soon as the plane hit the runway at the airport, I felt 'peace and rest'. And when we arrived at this condo, I felt the same! It is just as described...a wonderful, clean, nicely decorated, peaceful place to be..especially where I came down with an illness during our stay. As we walked the grounds, my hubby and I just felt like we were home, even though we come from New England. This is just a lovely, lovely place to stay. I would recommend it to anyone wanting to go to Molokai, especially those who love quiet and peace, writers, readers, photographers, etc. My sis and her friend came over to visit us and they loved it too, and said the sleep sofa was very comfortable. The ambience of the condo is wonderful, and when you leave, you step out into a beautiful smell of plumeria! The whole complex is tastefully arranged and sort of hidden by tropical trees and plants. Molokai is like stepping back in time....no commercialization at all. So if you're looking for that, go to another island! We did the hike to Halawa Valley, swam in the bay there, took in Purdy's Macadamia Nut Farm, Coffees of Hawaii, and drove to Kalaupapa lookout, bought produce at organic Kumu Farm, and drove around Kaunakakai and other areas of the island, including the beaches on the west shore which is where the condo unit is. Deserted beaches, beautiful big waves, though rough undertoe, and certainly beautiful sunsets. Dixie Maru Beach is the only place we felt safe enough to swim. I found Molokai to be a wonderful photographic opportunity, also. Be forewarned though, that you need to get anything you will need for your stay, all in Kaunakakai, as this is the central point for the whole island, including restaurants. Again, there is no commercialism here, and very few restaurants...nothing at all like the other islands, but so beautiful and peaceful..a pleasant change from other islands. And I can't say enough about the owner of this condo. She was delightfully helpful with everything about the condo and the island! She was a joy to make my plans with! If I ever get to Molokai again, I will be renting her condo again, and will tell others to do the same! Truly the "aloha spirit" is alive and well in the people on Molokai....nothing but friendly. No wonder they call it the 'friendly isle'. :-)"

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.
