Recent Molokai reviews
"My fiancé and I rented the 1 bedroom condo when we came over for a weekend getaway from Oahu. The place was very clean and had a beautiful view from the large lanai. Amenities were available including towels, dishware and apple TV. It was a short walk to the beach and so quiet and relaxing. The pool and hot tub were a nice amenity as well. We would definitely stay here again. Great stay!"Guest: Samantha Date of Stay: April 2014 Review Submitted: April 30, 2014View listing
"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"Guest: Francis S. Date of Stay: June 2014 Review Submitted: June 24, 2014View listing
"We just spent 4 days with our 2 grown daughters at Geoff and Lisa's amazing property. The location, scenery, local people, etc made it feel like what Kauai and Maui were like 50 years ago. The house has everything- awesome lanai to hang at, lawn down to a keiki beach for safe dipping and a few big old fashions tubs to soak in outside. Good surf and snorkeling close by. Neighbor Minnie brought papaya and bananas off her tree and we had an incredible hike with Eddie Tanaka (great guy/musician lives just west) of the Halawa Valley to the falls. Beautiful spot and the owners have done a great job on the cottages. From the minute we got off the plane and had lunch at Paddler's Restaurant with all the locals having a ukelele session to exploring the west side on our last day- Molokai and this house were incredible. Whole family loved it, Hope to be back."Guest: Beach Family Date of Stay: May 2014 Review Submitted: May 22, 2014View listing
"We enjoyed our stay at the beautiful Beach house. The jet jacuzzi in one bathroom was wonderful. The outside laundry facilities were a plus, along with the outside shower (a bonus). The access to the beach was 'user friendly", and the kayaks readily available. The kitchen had numerous amenities and a nice big refrigerator. There were many books to read, games to play, and the beds were comfortable. The caretaker was available and helpful, and the owners were helpful and answered our questions. I would highly recommend this place."Guest: Adventure Seeker Date of Stay: September 2014 Review Submitted: October 19, 2014View listing
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.
