Recent Molokai reviews

  • Tim and Marcelle - Portland

    "This is Molokai as it was intended to be experienced. Explore the beaches, enjoy the wildlife, read by the pool, and close each day with a beautiful sunset. The condo was great and Shell is an exceptional host. We especially liked local fruit smoothies with the blender provided."

  • Location, Location, Location ~ AWESOME !!!

    "Mahalo Laura and Victor, for providing a comfortable, well stocked Molokai condo we've coined the "Hula Bar". From the greeting of the tropical scent of plumeria's carried through the condo by way of flowing trade winds to your timely neighbor with the conch shell blowing at our "happy hour " at 5:30. Perfect setting to our direct ocean front views of the most mesmerizing Molokai sunsets! The Pool is perfect, the grounds are beautiful, your condo is comfortable and the location of your condo is AWESOME!!! Mahalo for the ease of booking months ahead with you, all of you great ideas of places to visit and sharing your beach condo with others to enjoy the Best Kept Secret of all the hawaiian islands, Molokai! Mahalo nui loa, carol and jerome"

  • Ideal Location

    "We stayed at the condo for 3 nights & our experience there was everything we had hoped it would be. When we travel we always use VRBO because we want the feeling as if we are home and it has never let us down. As soon as you walk thru the front door you get hit with the ocean view, priceless!!! The condo has every little detail covered from everything you'll need, the lanai is spacious and peaceful, the unit is very clean, you'll be so relaxed. You'll enjoy the grounds, the swaying palm trees, the beautiful walks, the wild turkey, we saw 2 deer on a morning walk. I have lived in Hawaii for 30 years now, 7 on Oahu and the last 23 on Maui and have been to all the islands. I can't believe it has taken 30 years to finallly get to Molokai for the 1st time. It's truly special to see a place where time has stood still and where everything feels so pure. Enjoy Molokai and all that it has to offer as it truly is one of a kind and you'll walk away after your stay at the condo wishing you had more time, again because you want to feel as if your at your home away from home. This is exactly what the condo will make you feel. Mahalo, Berit for sharing your home away from home with us. Joe & Gina (Maui)"

  • Beautiful, but a little bit cold

    "We spent a wonderful week at the condo, hiking, scuba diving, whale watching and just relaxing. We liked the condo very much, everything you need, clean, nice view, ... However, one thing really bothered us: It was quite cold in the beginning. The windows are open all the time, you cannot close them and the wind was blowing inside. Of course no heating in the condo. We had to cover the windows with newspaper and only after that it got a little better. An electric heater for cold days would be a really good idea."

Molokai Travel Tips

Molokai: Hawaii's Secret Paradise

To many people, the attraction of visiting Hawaii is the glitz and glamour of the many stylish hotels. Indeed, they create a great vibe but sometimes it's nice to experience how the islands felt when there were just beaches, palm trees and tracts of tropical forests. The island of Molokai is one of the least developed of the Hawaiian Islands. The residents are proud of the natural and cultural heritage that has been preserved here, and once you've spent a little while on Molokai, you'll soon appreciate why. Molokai vacation rentals are suitable for the traveler who enjoys nature, prefers to get away from the tourist bustle, and does not need modern conveniences to be entertained. It's a great place for that romantic getaway, anniversary celebration or quiet family holiday where you can spend some quality time together exploring the island's many treasures.

A Home Away From Home at Molokai Condos

Staying in a vacation home on Molokai, you can get a true glimpse of Hawaiian lifestyle. There is seldom any traffic on the roads and a great way to explore is to hire bicycles and ride along the coast. You'll soon find yourself sharing the island greeting of "Aloha" with people you pass by. Most of the homes are fully equipped and all you need to bring along is your groceries which you can stock up on at one of the local stores. Compared to some of the more developed islands, accommodations on Molokai are much more affordable which means you can stretch your travel budget and stay a little longer.

Things to see and do on Molokai

If you arrive at Molokai by boat from Maui, you will disembark at the Kaunakakai Warf which is the main harbor and marina on the island. Aside from regular ferries, many charter companies operate from here. You can book a leisurely sunset cruise or a deep sea fishing excursion. You could also go scuba diving or enjoy watching the humpback whales play in the waves in season. If you happen to be at the wharf on a summer weekend, you can watch the locals in their six-person canoe races. There's a great vibe as the crowds cheer on the paddlers and teams fight it out for victory.

Kalaupapa is a special reserve that was once a leper colony. It is spectacularly beautiful and there are amazing views from the cliffs. Access is restricted but you can join an organized tour and experience the history and natural beauty of the area. Most tours include a hike and mule ride as you explore the various historic sites. Father Damien was a priest who dedicated his life to caring for the lepers and the area is a memorial to his faithful service.

There are several other preserves on Molokai where you can go hiking. Some are on private land and access can only be gained if accompanied by a registered guide on an organized tour. Many people view a hike to the Hipuapua and Moa'ula Falls in the Halawa Valley as a highlight of their trips. The falls cascade down through two large rock pools. You can enjoy a swim in the lower pool but only if you abide by a local custom. Legend has it that the pool is home to a large lizard--a "mo'o." You need to first ask permission to swim by floating a ti leaf on the pool. If it floats, you may swim but if it sinks, it means the mo'o does not want you to swim and you should not enter.

The beaches are one of Molokai's greatest attractions. Beautiful, white palm-fringed sands create the perfect setting for that romantic moment. There are many beachfront properties to choose from when browsing for Molokai lodging, like Kaluakoi oceanfront condos. Imagine sitting on the deck and watching the waves gently roll onto the beach as the sun dips below the horizon.

Getting to Molokai

Hawaii's main airport is Honolulu on the island of Oahu. Molokai is located between Oahu and Maui and just a short ferry ride across the bay. Once on the island, you can get around easily by taking a taxi, renting a car or hiring a bicycle.
