  • Heaven on earth!

    "Paradise? Tranquility? Beauty abound? Romance? Nature? Freedom? Privacy? Gorgeous sunrises? If that's what you are looking for in a get away then this gem is exactly what your looking for! We LOVE this place! Outdoor shower was amazing, so incredibly refreshing. Entertainment at all hours just sitting on the lanai watching the colorful geckos, simply mesmerizing! The cottage is decorated with comfort in mind and had every amenity we could have ever needed. The colors of the plants surrounding every corner of the property takes your breath away! The sunrises were glorious on our own little private beach! Spent three weeks here and enjoyed every moment!"

  • Couldn't Possibly Be Nicer!

    "We stayed at Pu'unana over Thanksgiving weekend. What a beautifully ideal spot. Our host communicated by email and was wonderfully friendly and helpful. The cottage was clean and the kitchen had everything we needed. We slept great in comfortable beds with the sound of the surf and wind at night. The little lawn with a picnic table and coconut palm was idyllic. I went out snorkeling in front of the cottage, where there seemed to be the remains of an ancient Hawaiian fish pond. Saw some interesting creatures, including a young barracuda and a moray eel. Molokai is a special place, and the Dunbar beach cottages are a true treasure."

  • My 8 Day Stay at the Beach House

    "We enjoyed our stay at the beautiful Beach house. The jet jacuzzi in one bathroom was wonderful. The outside laundry facilities were a plus, along with the outside shower (a bonus). The access to the beach was 'user friendly", and the kayaks readily available. The kitchen had numerous amenities and a nice big refrigerator. There were many books to read, games to play, and the beds were comfortable. The caretaker was available and helpful, and the owners were helpful and answered our questions. I would highly recommend this place."

  • Treat yourself to a Home in Paradise

    "We just finished a relatively short (4-night) visit to Molokai, staying only at the Pauwalu Cottage. It was remarkable and lovely; we will definitely stay again next time we visit. The house itself was very clean, looked just like the pictures, and was well stocked with necessities (utensils and kitchen gadgets, briquet bbq, towels, paper towels, etc.). We followed the advice and did some shopping on the way from the airport -- although mostly we ate out. (This is Molokai, so that means plate lunch or choosing from a very few, very casual restaurants "in town" (Kaunakakai); so have realistic expectations.) There is no AC but the breeze and the fans were consistent and the screens worked great (no mosquitos got in -- but take a little mosquito repellant for the island; it would have been nice for the outdoor restaurants), so it was not missed. Booking was really easy and communication was prompt and friendly. The house is out towards the east end of the island and it's very comfortable (and 25 minutes from any dinner place), so grab stuff for one or more dinners at the house. Each morning and evening we spent at least an hour watching the waves and the ocean and reading on the lanai, and we would have stayed even more if we had planned groceries better. The deck and sunsets were my favorite things (and there was a lot to love from the house and the island). A note about the island: we loved Molokai and found folks to be very friendly when we took the time to chat but it is a somewhat different kind of vacation: slower, less posh, less convenient, more independent, etc. If that appeals, you will LOVE it and this cottage (and the other which is 2 minutes away and looked lovely too) is a perfect place. Enjoy."
