  • 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!"

  • 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 wife and I rented this very cute cottage to celebrate my wife's 50th birthday. An absolutely GEM!!! Kayaks are a great bonus for active people...we used it every day of our stay (8days total). Another unexpected bonus "watch tropical storm FLOSSY" from the lanai hit us/the island!! Jill the property manager was wonderfull and there for us any time we need her or had hicking questions. Hard to describe everything with so little space, YOU GOT to go to believe it. WE JUST LOVE IT!!! p.s. if you are looking for night life/party this is NOT your ISLAND!!"

  • Good quiet and secluded base for adventures.

    "Nice quiet side of the island and windy and cooler. The beach is rocky except at low tide. The ocean is shallow and not too rough due to a "barrier coral reef" which sits about 1/2 mile off shore. If you want to walk out toward the reef, bring some good "water shoes"...filp flops get stuck in the muck and the bottom is littered with pieces of coral which don't feel too good to step on. If you are looking for beaches and sun, try the west side of the island. Cooked most of our meals there; food expensive. The beach house was clean and well stocked. Caretakers were helpful and respectful of our privacy. Good place to sit and read and talk with company of a few tiny green lizards which never bothered us. We made day trips: 1. Kaulapapa Peninsula (contact Damien Tours before you arrive on the island for a permit to hike/take a mule/take a helicopter to the site of the former leper colony which Father Damien, Joseph Dutton and Mother Marianne Cope and her sisters served with love and energy, building a hospital, a home for boys and a home for girls); Note: there is a lookout in the park "topside" from which you can see the peninsula below) 2. Halawa Valley hike (buy ticket at gas station in Kaunakakai and expect an hour or more travel as the two lane road becomes one lane then narrower as you climb up then descend into the mouth of the valley on the beach...wear swim suit under walking shorts since there's a pool at the base of the second waterfall); 3. self guided tours of Catholic churches (Our Lady of Sorrows and St. Joseph's--both built by Father Damien--on the Kamehameha Highway and just a few miles away; St. Damien's newly built church in Kaunakakai with interesting crucifix handcarved from island wood and St. Vincent's in Maunaloa); 4. visit to local library to read about the history of Molokai (ask librarian to find books for you to read there) and several eateries in Kaunakakai and enjoyed Hawaiian sing along at the Paddler Restaurant there; 5. visited Coffees of Hawaii at Kualapuu and can continue north on this road to see Meyer Sugar Factory and the Kalaupapa Lookout. 6. visited Maunaloa on the way to the east side of the island and sandy beaches with rough surf. There is a farm on the east side, Wailua Permafarm, which delivers produce; we tried to drive up there on the muddy uphill road and couldn't find a place to park and barely got the Jeep turned around...wouldn't try that again. Lots to do at harbor just south of Kaunakakai. Aloha !!"
