  • Amazing family home

    "This was our second time in a row to Molokai with our twin toddlers. We toured almost every home for rent on west end of island on our first trip, knowing we would return. In the end, we picked this home for a one month stay. It is INCREDIBLE. Your jaw will drop when you open the door....just as the description by the owner states...it is indeed, luxurious. We arrived on December 22nd from Calgary, Alberta. We were immediately met by the wonderful caretaker Connie Taylor who became our good friend throughout our stay. It's nice to have the caretaker right on property, because if you need anything....Connie was there to help out. The pictures don't even do the home justice. The big, open living room, tv room, kitchen, and dining room is gorgeous. It's so nice to be in the kitchen preparing meals, and having an unobstructed view outside and to the television. Not to mention, it's super roomy....which is a must with 3 year old twins running around! The bedding, towels, mattresses etc are high end and very cozy, but I have to say the highlight of this home is the lanai. It is truly spectacular. On top of that, the landscaping and grass area is stunning. A great place for kids to run! If you're a cook -- the kitchen is a dream. Tons of room and everything you need from a Vita-Mix, to a juicer etc. I honestly could go on and on -- but you'll want to experience it for yourself. We have fallen in love with Molokai. It is a true gem. We live very busy lives and wanted a quiet, peaceful, relaxing place to escape to, and Molokai is it. This home made our second trip there, unforgettable. Thank you to the owners and Connie for such a great vacation! Brienne, Jason, Bodie and Steele Glass High River, Alberta"

  • Incredible stay in paradise

    "Our son and daughter in law brought us here to celebrate our 56th anniversary. We have already told them we would love to spend the next ten or more anniversaries here. The home is beautifully decorated and well stocked. All we had to do was buy groceries and everything was available to use and enjoy. The people in the closest town were also very kind. The spirit of ALOHA is alive and well in this area! The managers live right on property and reassured us they were available if we needed anything. They were extremely friendly and very helpful. We highly recommend this property but hope it doesn't get too popular so that we can't get in. You WILL LOVE IT!"

  • Molokai peace

    "This is the second visit for our family to "Dixie House" as some of the locals called it. As before, all communication with Scott was smooth and timely. Fern, the housekeeper, is a gem and we were so lucky she could fit in a fishing adventure with us. You cannot beat the location, view, beach access and general comfort of the house. If you want nightlife that you can't create yourself, don't go to Molokai. If you want a gorgeous setting, simple peace and quiet with ample opportunity for land and water activities, the Dixie Maru beach house is a perfect home base."

  • A great place to relax and unwind

    "This house was exactly what we were looking for. We sat on the porch (or should I say lanai?) for several stunning sunsets and long book reading sessions having nothing but the cool ocean breeze and the hypnotizing waves to divert our attention. The landscaping and gardening outside are lush and colorful. There were even papaya trees on site. We did not swim out front, but there are several close beaches. The Dixie Maru beach was great for swimming, and we body surfed on the 3mile beach that is less than a 5 minute drive from the house. In town, we signed up for a four hour snorkeling adventure at the Molokai Fish and Dive, and the owner was our captain. The coral and sea life was stunning. Seeing sea turtles as we swam was a highlight. The best restaurant we found in town was the pizza place, but there was also a pretty good place near the coffee plantation. From there, drive the 5 miles north to the lookout and phalic rock. The lookout down to the north side was breathtaking and just a short walk from the parking area on a sidewalk. The rock was a little tougher hike, but relatively easy. We took a day trip to the east side of the island to see the twin waterfalls. The last part of this road is one lane and very windy, so be patient. Cathi, our local contact pre-stocked our kitchen, and it is a good thing she did because the city is pretty much closed down on Sunday. We bought a fresh caught 5 pound Ahi tuna from a local on the main drag, and it was so good! Makes my mouth water just writing about it... There is also a local beef co-op that sells grass fed beef. This would also be a must if you stay in my opinion. The taste is very distinct and yummy. Back to the house. It has 3 bedrooms + 3 baths, sits on 5 acres and we saw just a few people the whole stay. There are wild turkeys, quails and other birds hanging out and adding to the beauty. A previous guest said that when they visited in March they could see whales migrating by from the lanai, and we think that we need to make a return trip to see that. We also came for a wedding, and this place was the best by far when compared to the others we saw on the island. If you are looking for a touristy vacation with fancy restaurants and crowds, this is definitely not for you. Instead, if you want to unplug from the hustle and bustle and seemingly travel back to a time where things just seem less complicated, I can't recommend this house enough. Safe travels, fx"

Papohaku Beach Travel Tips

Your Papohaku Beach Vacation Rentals Await

A Papohaku Beach vacation rental puts you footsteps away from one of the most surreal beaches in the world. Envision yourself on a white sand beach that extends for miles in either direction. You practically have it to yourself, unless you count the sea life, seagulls, or the crashing waves as company. You are on Papohaku Beach—home of countless activities and endless fun. Whether you want to go snorkeling, swimming, or surfing, this luxurious Molokai lodging puts you literally moments away from fun and adventure.

Things to Do Near Your Molokai Lodging

The beach itself will provide you with almost unlimited opportunities for fun in the sun, but there are also hundreds of other things to do on Molokai. Take a step away from your Papohaku Beach condo to go hiking, kayaking, or biking to experience the beauty of the island for yourself. Other tourist destinations include Kalaupapa National History Park, the Molokai Cultural Center, and Palaau State Park—to name just a few. The personal touch of the island is also expressed in its intimate fine dining.

Vacation in Luxury with Papohaku Beach Condos

Hotels on the island can be both smaller than you'd expect and more expensive than they're worth, especially if you're staying with larger groups or for long periods of time. The best Molokai lodging will always be the luxury condos. Most of these Papohaku Beach vacation rentals are oceanfront properties with amazing views, gorgeous accommodations, and they place you right on the edge of all the greatest sites. Many of the locations also feature Jacuzzis, gourmet kitchens, and more. You will get more privacy, better amenities and accommodations, and more value than local hotels, so it's clear to see why the these luxury properties have remained the top pick of those who love the islands.
