Recent Papohaku Beach reviews

  • 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"

  • Beautiful View

    "We truly enjoyed our week at the Dixie House. The view is incredible. We spent many hours sitting on the deck soaking up the beauty. The short two minute walk to "our" beach was also a treat. We will be returning to the best spot in Molokai."

  • Magical Estate in Paradise

    "Jim's home on Papohaku Beach is by far the most exclusive retreat and location. We had our small intimate wedding at this home and it was an incredibly magical experience. We rented quite a few of the surrounding houses for friends and family and the location of this estate cannot be beat. The home is gorgeous and feels how Hawaii should feel, relaxed, peaceful, paradise. The grounds are spectacular with exotic plants, lush greenery and tons of palm trees. The pool is gorgeous and it's so nice to have a hot tub. We swam in the ocean at sunrise every day and then took a dip in the hot tub and drank coffee. Our whole family stayed in this house and it didn't feel cramped at all. Everyone had their own space and loved the house. Ma'asi was so helpful and we barely noticed him, but he was there when we needed him. This house was truly perfect for our wedding. We had the ceremony on the beautiful Papohaku Beach with our toes in the sand. All of our friends and family are so grateful that we chose Molokai and this home for our wedding because it was such a unique place that they most likely would have never experienced. We will definitely be back!"

  • Incredible vacation!

    "This stunning house was so perfect for our vacation with family and friends this past October. The amount of living space is amazing...so much room to spread out over the week! The kitchen was fully equipped, the hot tub was perfect after a day of hiking, surfing, biking, swimming and exploring! The 3 mile long beach behind the house was gorgeous and for the most part empty! Beautiful sunsets every night, great swimming in the little protected cove nearby, and long walks on the beach every morning! Molokai is perfect for those of us who want to get away from it all...no traffic, no high-rise hotels, quiet beaches, incredible hikes, etc, etc! Tim and LeeAnn were wonderful hosts with lots of information about the island. They provided fresh caught fish for our dinner one night and took some members of our party fishing in their boat. The lime trees on the property were delicious, but unfortunately, the week we were there the chickens were on strike!"
