"Molokai is not for everyone. There are no five-star resorts...no five-star restaurants...and no real choice of rental cars. In fact, it's hard to find any place to enjoy a great meal anywhere on the island. Having said all that, we found that Hale Ula Lani offers everything that we would expect to find at a first class resort with a fantastic sunset view and all the comforts and amenities of home. Everything in this unit has been upgraded to the utmost. The kitchen has absolutely everything a gourmet chef could want, and then some. Granite, stainless steel, even an espresso machine! And all the condiments and other amenities to prepare the finest of meals. Every detail is carefully crafted to reflect local culture and history. The décor in both bedrooms and bathrooms is rich and obviously well thought out. And the laundry in the unit is a godsend! The expansive lanai offers a comfortable opportunity to enjoy the views of the island's most beautiful western beaches and the most fabulous sunsets ever. We loved every minute of our stay here. The solitude...the hikes on nearby isolated beaches...the opportunity to reflect on past and present. This is truly the Hawaii that once was. Quiet. Simple. This is the true Hawaii. We will be back again next year. For sure!"

"If you are looking for peace and solitude-this is the place to stay!! We rented the house from Jan 25th to Feb 7th. We absolutely loved our stay here! We stayed alone in the house, but it is large enough for two couples to have plenty of room.
The home has 2 lg bedrooms, each with their own bathroom. There is a tub in one and a shower in the other, but we used neither. The outdoor shower is divine! A must use while you stay. There is nothing like showering outside under the palms with a view of the ocean-still missing it!
The kitchen comes equipped with everything you need. There is a good selection of pots, pans and dishes. There is a barbque outside, off the lanai for use. We cooked some wonderful meals and very much enjoyed the view of the ocean right out the window while we were prepping. We purchased spices and oil at the local store, but did find that there was quite a selection left from previous renters.
The bed was very comfortable. We enjoyed having access to a washer and dryer as well and did do a load or two of laundry.
We had some rainy weather while we were there and the solar hot water held out well. We were never lacking for hot water.
Jill, the caretaker, was friendly and helpful. She was a great resource for things to do and places to get great produce (Kumu farms).
We made a lot of use of the ocean kayaks, taking a daily row out and about to check things out. The water is so clear that you can easily see the coral and fish below. We surprised a turtle once when we literally rowed over top of it and it scared us when it took off right from under us-so cool!
A few different couples stayed in the cottage and except for the occasional hellos that we exchanged when we saw each other in the yard, the area is large enough and secluded enough that we didn't feel like we were invading space.
There is wi-fi available and we did use of it. It worked quite well, only having issues when it rained heavily one night and the whole island had trouble connecting. There is a TV in the one room, but we didn't use it much. We watched whales from the lanai and enjoyed watching the changing times of day.
The property is set off the road a bit. This helped it to feel more secluded as there is only one road at that end of the island and everyone travels it. If you are close to the road, you would definitely hear the traffic.
I highly recommend this property. The owners were very easy to contact and deal with."

"This vacation rental was very nice. It had everything needed to have a relaxing vacation. The ocean is literally right out front. There is a little store and take out cafe 3 miles down the road. We would definitely stay there again."

"This is our second time staying at Bob's condo at the Wavecrest resort. The first time for one week and recently for a one-month stay. The condo was very clean with a nicely updated kitchen. There are beautiful ocean views from inside the condo and on the patio looking over to the island of Maui. We could see whales from the patio.
Other reviews have mentioned the roosters crowing in the morning. We closed the bedroom window at night and I used earplugs and got a good nights sleep.
There is no air-conditioning in the unit, but the ceiling fans in the bedroom and living room kept us cool.
The oceanfront pool and cabana are very nice features of the property. It is a small resort, and it is easy to meet people.
The beach out front is not a good swimming beach as it is an ancient fish pond with a muddy bottom. There are beaches 3 miles and 7 miles from the condo for swimming and snorkeling (and also on the West End).
The Wavecrest resort is 13 miles east of the town of Kaunakakai. We made most of our meals at the condo (often using the barbecues by the pool) and saved our dining out for when we were exploring the island and in town for the Saturday market. There is also a small grocery store and good walk-up diner/window for take-out food 3 miles from the condo. We enjoyed the ukulele jam sessions on Tuesdays at the coffee store and Fridays at Hotel Molokai.
Molokai is NOT the island for you if you want lots of nightlife, fancy restaurants and high-end shopping malls. We like Molokai because of the uncrowded, laid-back lifestyle-no chain stores, no traffic jams, no reason to rush around from one tourist activity to another! We enjoyed exploring the Island-the West End beaches, the Kalaupapa lookout and Sugar Mill Museum, the beautiful Halawa Valley on the East End, hiking, etc. And plenty of time for swimming in the pool, relaxing in the sun and reading.
The booking process was easy with Bob, and he called to make sure everything was fine after we arrived. We hope to stay here again when we return to Molokai.
Mahalo Bob for Molokai Magic!"
