About the property

1 Bedroom, 3rd floor Condo with Tropical Ocean View!

This condo is located in the “C” building at the Wavecrest Resort on the tropical, East end of Moloka’i.

We recently purchased this condo and completely remodeled the unit from top to bottom in October 2017. It has all new appliances, dishes and linens. The quality King size bed is super luxurious and the sleeper sofa pulls out for extra guests.

The lanai overlooks the meticulously manicured courtyard of the resort and on out to the Pacific Ocean on either side of the Cabana pool. This is the best view in either “B” or “C” buildings. It is a “tranquil delight” to behold!

The kitchen is completely stocked with everything necessary for home cooking. Beach amenities are provided for fun filled days in the water. They include beach chairs, umbrella, soft cooler, snorkel gear and a surfboard. Enjoy the oceanfront pool, and tennis courts!

Moloka’i is the Hawaii of 60 years ago. It is quiet with beautiful tropical landscape, slow paced and with friendly citizens. Great paved roads and a small town atmosphere provides the incentive to relax and to enjoy life.

Flying into Moloka’i you will fly over the highest Ocean Cliffs in the United States of America! You will see the many beautiful waterfalls across the land.

State of Hawaii Tax Registration ID# TA-145-648-2304-01

We are licensed with the State of Hawaii to rent our 2003 Jaguar S-Type car. It is a silver, four door sedan that we enjoyed on the mainland and shipped to Moloka’i for us to use while there, as well as for our guests to use. This is a separate contract from VRBO’s and Homeaway’s contract. Feel free to ask us about it!

Why Meredith & Jerry Johnson chose Kaunakakai

We have a condo in Maui and this condo is our second one we have been fortunate enough to purchase at the beautiful Wavecrest Resort in Moloka'i. We love that Moloka'i is like the old Hawaii of 60 years ago! :) The grounds at Wavecrest and the friendly citizens of the Island make it a perfect vacation destination!

What makes this condo unique

Oceanfront condo. Beautiful Hawaiian foliage, birds, tropical settings that are breathtaking. Gorgeous sunrises and sunsets. Friendly residents and guests at the condo. The pool is right on the ocean.

Delightful, Classy Condo

  • 5 of 5

This condo was clean, classy and comfortable. It was obvious that it was just remodeled with all new.... everything! It was tastefully decorated with Hawaiian decor and paintings by local artists. Using new towels, dishes, appliances and snorkel gear was really nice. The view of the tropical courtyard and ocean from the lanai was beautiful and calming. Taking a nap on the soft chaise lounge on the lanai was awesome! We need to mention, also, the king size bed was fabulous!

Thank you, Jerry and Meredith, you have put together another super condo! We will be back again!

Clean, comfortable, well maintained & truly peaceful!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were looking for a place to stay that was quiet, well equipped for cooking, with a pool and comfortable furniture. We were so pleased with what we found in this condo! Good value when you compare other simpler listings. Wavecrest resort is surprisingly peaceful, with friendly neighbors, no loud music at pool or anywhere, grounds are nicely maintained and the pool is lovely. This condo has a plush king size bed that is high quality. There are little touches that show care; soft large bathroom towels, fresh cooking spices, a full pan set (free of Teflon), snorkel gear, beach chairs & a cooler provided. The arrival information is clear and the hosts are prompt in communication. If we come to Molokai again this is where we will stay!

First time to Molokai, can't wait to come back!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time visiting Molokai and we cannot wait to come back!

From beginning to end, the whole booking process and overall experience went so smoothly that we can't thank Meredith and Jerry enough.

We booked Miss Kitty as well....she was purrrr-fect for our needs. Ran so smoothly and such a quiet car. We took her from one end of the island to other (not all at once, various outings) with no issues at all.

Meredith and Jerry's instructions were spot on. We arrived to the condo with starting groceries from The Friendly Market with no problems. We did the big shop a few days later when we had all day to explore the stores (the 'Costco' is across the street from Friendly's if you want bigger quantities of some chips, granola, frozen fruit, etc).

The condo was also perfect! The kitchen stocked enough for our needs. Fridge had condiments which was very handy. The king size bed was soooo comfy and the pillows so nice and squishy (we like soft pillows). Enjoyed the tv in the evenings and on the few rainy days that we decided to stay home on.

The binder of island information was so handy. I took pictures of a few pages so that I had them with us when we ventured out.

Loooooved the lanai.....watched many sunrises from there.....even saw the odd whale spout off in the distance. Became friends with Heckle and Jeckle the myna birds and of course Hoover the dove (he liked to look for crumbs).

Everyone in the complex that we met were kind, friendly, and informative too. Met people from all over (Spokane, Colorado, Gibson's, Seattle, Saskatchewan...). And we really loved the fact that the complex was non smoking.

Thank you again to Meredith and Jerry....we cannot wait to come back again next February!

Well-equipped Immaculately Clean Condo

  • 4 of 5

We loved staying at the Johnson’s condo at Wavecrest. Great view of the gardens and ocean, especially as you recline on the new chaise on the lanai. We took advantage of the offer to rent their Jaguar, Ms. Kitty, and had a blast zipping around this laid-back friendly island. The Johnsons are great communicators and we loved working with them. We really wished we would have booked a longer stay as there is so much to explore on Molokai. We gave 4 stars instead of 5 because of the roosters on the property down the road who insisted on an early wake up call.

Wonderful stay at Wavecrest

  • 5 of 5

I’m pretty sure Molokai loosely translated means “must love roosters”!

The first morning I thought they were annoying but by the second day I’d relaxed into the wonderful laid back vibe of Molokai and loved lying in the super comfortable bed, cool breeze coming through the window, serenaded by chirping, cooing, warbling and even the rooster crowing as the sun came up. This quiet, manicured, convenient complex was perfection. Everywhere is easy to get to on Molokai but we loved being just up the road from the beach at 20 mile. Safe water, though shallow, due to reef but lovely, uncrowded stretch of sand. Jerry and Meredith manage this rental (and car!) professionally and pleasantly. The condo is well supplied, comfortable and maintained. I highly recommend Molokai and Wavecrest for a very relaxing vacation. We would love to return. Mahalo

Wonderful time in a wonderful condo

  • 5 of 5

We just finished up a most enjoyable getaway to Moloka'i, made even better by the comfortable and inviting condo we rented through Meredith. She was more than accommodating to our specific needs and extremely prompt and thorough with communications. The condo is in a well-maintained, lovely complex full of tropical plantings and a wonderful view of the pool and the ocean beyond. It is well-stocked and homey with inviting decor and lots of fabulous artwork by a talented local artist. There are beach chairs, umbrella, cooler and beach toys all available for use. We also rented their Jag (Ms Kitty) and had a great time tooling around Moloka'i in her. Meredith made every effort to work with us on special circumstances and we can't say enough about her kindness and aloha. We hope to return someday!
