Recent Molokai reviews

  • Beautiful Home on the Gorgeous Beach!

    "We were totally blown away by the beauty of both the home and the view. The caretaker was very friendly and helpful and the home had literally EVERYTHING you needed to have a great stay! Very secluded and quiet location on the island. Sitting in the pool during the evenings looking up at the stars was a real highlight. My only comment to renters would be to bring as much food to the island as you can because grocery stores are alittle limited. Plus it will minimize the trips to town and keep you enjoying the home. Hopefully we can get the opportunity to return to the Island and home again.......it was by far the most relaxing vacation we've ever had to the hawaiin islands!"

  • Beautiful condo.

    "It's actually been a year since we stayed at Chad's condo and I was just referring someone here I realized I never left a review. From start to finish Chad was easy to deal with and provided tons of info to us on what to see and do and where to go. We took our teenage twin daughters who slept in large loft bedroom and we stayed in first floor bedroom. The condo is beautiful and the views cannot be beat. We also enjoyed the pool on site. We would return to this property in a heartbeat."

  • Delightful Retreat

    "This condo was delightful. Even better than the pictures. Charming decor and a view that couldn't be beat. We chose to sleep on the sofa bed downstairs as to be able to look out at the view. We saw the full moon set into the ocean which was breathtaking. We bought most of our food at Kumu Organic Farm and ate mostly at the condo which was well appointed. Swam every day in the pool at sunset and always had it to myself. Also enjoyed floating in the ocean and walking the beach in front of the resort. Though the resort and golf course are closed and have become run down, the gardens and condos are kept up and the basic design of the property is quite lovely. We flew down to Kalapappa which was an awesome and moving experience and traveled around the rest of the island concluding that the West end was our favorite spot and we hope to return again. I've already recommended it to friends. The owner is very friendly and helpful and when we forgot some items made sure they were sent to us. Very responsive. It was quiet and peaceful and I loved that the only corporate business on the island was the Chevron station. Which had a vase of flowers in the lua. Just mom and pop stores, each one unique. It's very country with chickens and wild turkeys wandering around.If you're looking for something authentic,this is the place to find it."

  • Amazing family home

    "This was our second time in a row to Molokai with our twin toddlers. We toured almost every home for rent on west end of island on our first trip, knowing we would return. In the end, we picked this home for a one month stay. It is INCREDIBLE. Your jaw will drop when you open the door....just as the description by the owner states...it is indeed, luxurious. We arrived on December 22nd from Calgary, Alberta. We were immediately met by the wonderful caretaker Connie Taylor who became our good friend throughout our stay. It's nice to have the caretaker right on property, because if you need anything....Connie was there to help out. The pictures don't even do the home justice. The big, open living room, tv room, kitchen, and dining room is gorgeous. It's so nice to be in the kitchen preparing meals, and having an unobstructed view outside and to the television. Not to mention, it's super roomy....which is a must with 3 year old twins running around! The bedding, towels, mattresses etc are high end and very cozy, but I have to say the highlight of this home is the lanai. It is truly spectacular. On top of that, the landscaping and grass area is stunning. A great place for kids to run! If you're a cook -- the kitchen is a dream. Tons of room and everything you need from a Vita-Mix, to a juicer etc. I honestly could go on and on -- but you'll want to experience it for yourself. We have fallen in love with Molokai. It is a true gem. We live very busy lives and wanted a quiet, peaceful, relaxing place to escape to, and Molokai is it. This home made our second trip there, unforgettable. Thank you to the owners and Connie for such a great vacation! Brienne, Jason, Bodie and Steele Glass High River, Alberta"

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.
