About Sharon Brown and Albert Clement
I live in Seattle with Albert, raising 5 kids who are launching now, and our Molokai condo has become our 2nd home! They say Molokai chooses you, and she sure did. We like travel, hiking, yoga, snowshoeing, good food, good reading, and just hope to be doing a lot more of all this!
Sharon Brown and Albert Clement purchased this Condo in 2016
Why Sharon Brown and Albert Clement chose Maunaloa
They say that Molokai choses you, and she sure did! We visited and spent time with a friend last year and we were done for. We love the quiet and space of Molokai. We love the western exposure and wide open spaces of West Molokai, and we love the rustic and dramatic nature of the shoreline here. Most of all we have enjoyed the people we have met along the way. The fact that the Sheraton resort is returning to nature and the golf course is now a meadow is a plus for us, and hopefully for you too!
What makes this Condo unique
The views and sights and sounds from the lanai are such a treat. When can you be so in contact with the wild world of surf meeting land? Wandering the red trails by bike or foot. Wide open spaces, empty highways and beaches. A great place to find out more about yourself.

This place is a dream
Perfect little sanctuary for exploring the west coast. Looks even better than the pictures! Very comfortable bed and pillows, well stocked kitchen, nice bathroom, awesome view, perfect outdoor dining on the porch. The lofty ceilings and windows on all sides made it a perfect temperature. Sharon also had really fast communication and accommodated an early check in for us. We only stayed two nights (after 4 nights on the east side) and really wish we had stayed longer! The beaches on the west are so fun to explore. We walked down to the beach at the resort and then headed north towards Dixie Maru and found epic waves, a protected wading pool, incredible rock formations, and a big red cliff. Further south (10 min drive) was a great swimming beach. Magical place and we would love to come back and stay at this wonderful condo!
Clean, quite and cozy next to the beach
Had everything needed staying near the beach and all appliances worked super well. Highly recommend. We will definitely be back. Mahalo
The condo was newly renovated and well kept. Made our stay in beautiful Kaluakoi very comfortable.
The condo was very nicely updated with a view of the ocean.
The condo was great. Sharon and Albert were very helpful and kind. I would highly recommend staying at their property.
Break from the crowds..peace and Q-U-I-E-T
My husband and I visited Molokai for the first time and spent a few days at Kephui Beach Resort. Loved the "back in time" feeling of the island - understand why the islanders would like to keep Molokai as is. You travel here ONLY if you want peace, quiet and serenity. It is a beautiful spot of the world.
The Unit: Sharon and Albert have done a lovely renovation of the unit. The wood floors are beautiful. The bathroom modern and clean with a tub/shower combo & toilet in room. The sink vanity is outside the bathroom - well done!!. It is an end unit looking to the ocean and you can hear the waves crash!! It is small and cozy. There is no couch, just a chair next to the dresser/TV stand and two pub style chairs at the island. On the lanai there is a table with chairs as well. The bed is firm, lots of pillows. The kitchen runs along one wall. Cook top NO oven. Microwave - not convection. A common barbeque is just a ways from the unit. This unit did not have screens in some windows or at the sliding door, so we had a few bug visitors. NOTE: the sliding doors have screens in bottom portion, and above the doors in the vault of the wall - these do not close, so on windy cool nights - it gets cool. (also note that you hear your neighbors and they hear you. There is NO a/c. Not really needed as breezes are nice, but when there's humidity, there's humidity!! This is same for all the units I looked at. These are OLD units. Built in the late 70's and not the best workmanship from what we saw. At one time this was part of a huge complex of hotel & apartment style buildings. AT this time 1/2 of the buildings are unused and falling into disrepair. Very sad to see. HOWEVER, the part that is being used as the Kephui Beach Resort (that is a VERY loose term) is kept up, with lovely lawns and gardens. The pool is again, from the 70's. The buildings around the pool are closed up so it feels like you are post apocalypse down there (and around). Not necessarily bad, just be aware....
There are LOTS of trails to walk. The beach is lovely to sit on, watch the waves crash, watch a few surfers, not sure I would venture into it (maybe in the summer months??)
You are a good 25-30 minutes to a store of any kind so make sure you take provisions when going in. There is a small store there (open 9-5 every day) but more expensive than usual (and that's saying something because Molokai is pricey) but it has essentials (and a few non-essentials
Air dropped onto Gillian’s Island
First of all, our room was fantastic, Sharon and Albert have done a wonderful job renovating!
The island was everything and nothing at all like I thought it would be. It’s a really unique place, and in some ways hard to explain. I guess if I had to some it up... a small country town on a tropical island.
We loved our trip, and will be back!
Molokai is rural and wide open to your imagination. You can arrange snorkel, fishing, golf, bird banding, mountain biking and hiking. Beaches are wide open, some are rough, some are great for snorkeling. Visiting Kalaupapa by mule or plane is a profound experience and the selfless story of Father Damien and Sister Marianne's service is moving. There are no chain stores, no stoplights and every experience will be unique and original. Welcome to Molokai!
