"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!"

"Our stay for over a week at the Pauwalu Cottage was fantastic. The cottage was a perfect size for two, isolated, private, and furnishing its own beach. The views from the balcony were spectacular. We ate in every night and had no trouble finding the necessary pots, pans, utensils, and dishes - the house was well stocked. Of course, the beauty of Molokai and the charming people we met added immensely to the experience. We would highly recommend this property for adults. It was a most memorable time, and we can't wait to return."

"My family recently took a week off work and visited the island of Molokai. We rented two homes through Leslie Dunbar. Each had a lovely waterfront setting and two bedrooms. They were both well furnished with everything necessary for a lovely stay. Our group included two grandparents (us), and our daughter and her husband with their two small children. We rented a car so we could explore the island and must say that a car is a must. We booked a whale watching tour which was spectacular (we could also see the whales from the deck of each home) and toured the island. It was a lovely vacation but there are caveats. Molokai is not Maui or Honolulu. You will find more of the original Hawaii here. The scenery is beautiful but the amenities are not for the pampered. Have a sense of adventure and go see the whales!"

"My 2 friends and I went to Molokai for a girls getaway and stayed at this perfect rental for 2 nights. We arrived in the evening and the rental was easy to find based on directions, clean and in the perfect location (only 3 mins from the most beautiful 3-mile beach!) The loft bed was extremely comfortable, the kitchen was easy to use and full of condiments, utensils and cookware that we needed. We enjoyed waking up to the view of the ocean, walking down to the shore for sunset and swimming in the small pool. There were turkey on the lawn in the morning and deer along the road as we drove there (be careful and drive slowly!). We live on Oahu and will definitely recommend this place to all or friends and family!"
