"Everything about our stay at Geoff's and Lisa's cottage was wonderful. The Molokai experience was just what we were looking for as we'd visited some of the other islands and disliked the crowds and traffic. We not only had our own private beach here, we had entire beaches to ourselves when we went sightseeing. There were 4 of us sharing the larger cottage, and it was very comfortable, nicely furnished and had everything we needed for our week's stay. The soaking tubs were great to relax in with a cocktail. All of the "locals" were extremely friendly and helpful. So many tried to help the guys with their fishing gear and what to use for bait. Our neighbor, Dino, always had an idea to try and he shared some of his catch with us. He and Minnie bent over backwards to make sure we had everything we needed. We teased them about barbecueing one of their roosters as it gave us early morning wake ups but we enjoyed the gorgeous sunrises each day. The property is very lush and the private beach would be an ideal area for small children to swim. It was fun for us too. We definitely would like to come back again and would recommend this true Hawaiian aloha experience to everyone."

"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!"

Very comfortable accommodations, great communication from owner
"My wife, daughter, mom, brother, & I were looking for a place to stay on Molokai. In the past we've stayed with family, but now with our 2 year old daughter we were looking for a place of our own so she could nap & go to bed early.
Annie was really great. She contacted me right away & over the weeks prior to our visit we talked on the phone, via email. & text.
We were specifically looking for a place with at least 2 bedrooms & with a crib or pack-n-play. Annie's condo has 2 bedrooms & is a corner unit, so it was very quiet. There is no AC, but we didn't need it being so close to the ocean & it's breeze. We stayed in the master bedroom with a king sized bed. There's a lanai at the foot of the bed so we left the door open with just the screen & with louvers at the head of the bed we had nice breezes while sleeping.
Annie took our asking about a crib or pack-n-play seriously. She actually ended up buying a crib for us & called to see where we wanted it set up. Now, that's service.
There have been some people critical about the shower. We didn't have a problem with it for the 5 of us. There are 2 half baths connected by a shower that has walk through doors coming from both half baths covered by shower curtains. We would just make sure people knew we were going to use the bathroom & shut both bathroom doors for privacy. It was way nicer to have our own sink & toilet & share a shower than have to share all 3. After living out of a suitcase for 2 weeks it's nice to be able to set out your toiletries & not have to dig through bags for everything.
The condo has a full kitchen. We bought groceries & cooked a lot to save some money. We spent most of our time while at the condo sitting on the lanai off of the living room. What a view! We never really turned on the tv while there because we'd just look at the ocean, Maui & Lanai across the channel, etc.
The grounds of Wavecrest are very well maintained. It's a nice, comfortable place to be. I see now why my parents looked at a condo here prior to my dad's passing. We utilized the swimming pool daily as well as the gas grills & tables & chairs in the covered area by the pool for a couple of meals. We also used the coin operated washer & dryer prior to leaving. There's a laundry room on each level of the building.
We definitely look forward to staying here again. Then next time we're on Molokai we will contact Annie!

"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."
