  • 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!"

  • 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!"

  • Hale Kai

    "Great getaway and well maintained and equipped home. If you want to decompress and don't need entertainment, this is the place. Very organized property management and booking experience. Molokai is a special place and this is a great base to stay."
