  • 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."

  • 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."

  • Privacy in Paradise!

    "We loved our vacation at this very private guest house. The house was charming and felt luxurious, airy, bright and very clean. It felt great to walk around in a bathing suit. I felt so pampered there from dipping in the private pool to eating oranges from the trees. From the lanai we saw whales spouting. I swam in the private pool every morning and night. We took the kayak to the beach only a few minutes away. The beach felt private. There were plenty of provisions in the house from towels and lotions to bar-be-cue and snorkel gear, chaise by the pool and hammock in the back yard. Town was a distance to drive but we didn't even want to go more than once. Molokai and this house spoiled me!"

  • Even better than hoped for...

    "The cottage, the setting, and the hammock were all we hoped for and more. Some days we were fairly active with hikes, a boat ride, or the Kalaupapa Mule Ride. Other days we didn't even start the Jeep, but stayed around the cottage and the beach, swimming, snorkeling, or relaxing. Our caretakers, James and Lauren, were very friendly and helpful with info about who to call for different activities. The information about the property, and most of the accompanying reviews are quite accurate. We hope to come back again sometime (that's the best recommendation I can give - to say something I've done I would gladly do again)."
