Recent Molokai reviews

  • December 2014 in Molokai - Awesome vacation!

    "Hello, I spent the month of December 2014 at the Wavecrest in the unit 306C in Molokai. I had an amazing time! First, the condo...Really nice, spacious, clean, modern look. The kitchen is very well equipped. I had a surprise invitation to go to a wedding and was asked to bake dessert. To my surprise, I found everything I needed mixer, bowls, spatula and even serving plates! Now, that made my life that much easier...(Thanks Jane!) The bed is really comfortable and I slept great right away. Of course, some people may mention the roosters early in the morning but to be honest with you, they didn't bother me at all. The building and community area (pool, cabana and tennis court) are all extremely well maintained. There is always someone cleaning and tending the beautiful landscaping of the place. The pool is not heated but for me it was a plus...I found it to be refreshing. Always some chairs available at the pool and on the premises. BBQ grills are always kept clean and are working great. There is even a fridge at the cabana if you wish to bring some refreshments during the day or keep your food cold while you BBQ. The island...Well, it is so beautiful! As much the sea, as the mountains. Everywhere you look it's a beautiful sight. Naturally, if you are looking for clubbing, going out in a different restaurant every night...Molokai might not be the place for you. But if like me you are looking to experience a simple, relaxing vacation...don't hesitate, BOOK NOW! I used Molokai Outdoors for my activities and Clare, the owner, was absolutely awesome. I ended up renting a kayak for the month and did a few hiking trails. I used her services for my transportation as well. Excellent service, I highly recommend her. The best surprise for me was the people I had the chance to meet at the Wavecrest. People living there permanently or a few months out of the year...they were all so nice and friendly. I felt at home and they became like friends during my stay. I found myself missing them when I was back home! Among those people, you can't go there without getting introduced to Nelson, the local fisherman of the place. You'll see him repair his fishing net and, for a few dollars, he'll prepare fish in ti leaf ready to BBQ for you! Can't go to the Wavecrest without eating some of Nelson's treats! I didn't rent a car and traveled with the local bus. It's free but you should leave a donation. Amazing time, beautiful place, wonderful people... Joan"

  • Molokai mo betta and this house was awesome!

    "My wife and I stayed here for a week in February. Was everything we hoped it would be. Beautiful house with deck over looking the ocean and out to Maui with two rocking chairs where we spent a lot of time just relaxing and spotting whales. Great set up for kayaking behind the well protected reef and a private beach to just hang out on. The house has an outdoor shower too. Nice kitchen with all the tools you need which is good because dinning options on Molokai are basically zero. The only downside was having to leave!"

  • Best-Kept Secret on Moloka'i

    "I am always leery about vacation rentals not being as advertised, but Chad's photos and description are spot-on. We spent four nights here, and it was difficult to leave that view to explore the island! Yes, it's in a busy condo complex, yes, you can hear the neighbors, but everyone is so friendly and helpful. Do note that there is no elevator, and this is a third-floor unit, there is no A/C but the ocean breeze is to die for, and there really isn't a swimming beach on site. None of that bothered us, but some folks would fuss. The pool is lovely as are the grounds and picnic areas. I was a bit dismayed, upon arrival, by the parking areas, old cars, and exterior, but that changed quickly upon entering the condo. Chad is wonderful to deal with, and I would highly recommend renting any of his properties simply because he is so very attentive and kind."

  • Great place with awesome beach!

    "The owners did a wonderful job communicating efficiently and with very clear instructions. The condo had everything we needed to feel comfortable-- loads of kitchenware, comfortable linen, even entertainment (movies and a 1000 piece jigsaw puzzle that we attempted)! The beach is a few minutes walk away and great to hang out at. Having the car was such a convenience, and the power steering was amazing! The owners really care about their guests and earnestly want them to have a wonderful time. I felt this from the moment I sent my inquiry all the way to the end of our trip. Thank you so much for everything!"

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.
