Overview

About the property

Main House (3 Bedrooms, 4 1/2 Baths)

MOLOKAI SEA RANCH is a beautiful and very private home on Papohaku Beach, on the secluded west end of this magical island, overlooking sunsets over Diamond Head. The house stretches out along the beach, following the terrain of the land, with almost all rooms overlooking the pool, lawn, hot tub and broad beach and ocean. The huge central area includes a 60' long beachfront lanai, three separate living areas, kitchen, dinning area, library and TV all overlooking the pool and beach. Bedrooms offer options for king, queens, and twin beds, each with outdoor shower and a private lanai with its own additional entrance to the pool and beach.

The property is fully fenced and gated, yet is only 15 minute drive from the airport. It also includes beach paths, a fenced corral, regulation horseshoe pitch and many game and sitting areas overlooking the beach. A full-time live on property manager, residing some 200 yards from the main house, over sees lush tropical gardens and trails to the beach.

Often described by guest as a "private 5-star resort"

The property also offers a two-story art studio with natural light from all sides, available only for the main house guest at an additional rental fee.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful holiday with the family in the most perfect family setting. At the same time, I couldn't help dreaming of being here alone with the sounds of the natural world to consider. The house is absolutely beautiful and being where it is makes it a truly special and spiritual place. Thank you for providing the opportunity to experience Molokai Sea Ranch.

Beautiful Home on the Gorgeous Beach!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Magnificent home, awesome time!

  • 5 of 5

We had a family reunion and enjoyed the visit. The house is big enough to accomodate a very big group of people, yet there was a "homey" feeling. Even though this is a luxurious home, one could not feel at home and comfortable. Running down to the beach and flying kites, or just going for a long walk were daily activities! Of course, the daily sunsets from the incredible lanai were the best!

We loved our visit and would come back in a heartbeat!

Gorgeous house; minor quibbles.

  • 5 of 5

Most gorgeous house I've ever stayed in and the best equipped. Great temporary caretaker. Only complaints: rat in kitchen every morning; we finally caught one so maybe just one. It rained almost the whole time so I'm sure that was the problem. Dishwasher hardly ever worked and has apparently not worked well since October; we had to get the caretaker to keep starting it. Biggest complaint is the shrubbery around the pool. We loved sitting out there but couldn't see squat--might as well have been in Houston for that part of the trip.

Wow. Beautiful Home, Great Experience

  • 5 of 5

As nice as the house looks online, it is even nicer in person. We rented the house for a full family vacation 6 kids, 7 adults to celebrate my parents 50th wedding anniversary. The house easily accomodated all of us and was the perfect jumping off point for discovering the charms of Molokai.

Highlights from the trip were

- walks on Popohaku beach. Amazing to have such a large beach to yourself. Not good for swimming because of the surf, but still spectacular to see.

- swimming at nearby Dixie Maru

- snorkeling with Tim from Molokai Fish and Dive

- hiking up to Halawa falls

Would definitely have done the Kaulapapa mule ride if we didn't have kids. (Kids under 16 aren't allowed down to Kaulapapa) However, the views of it from the overlook are spectacular.

If you are looking for a place with nightlife, Molokai is not the place. If you are the adventurous type looking for a quiet place to spend time with your friends and family, we had a wonderful experience.

Beyond Anything Imaginable

  • 5 of 5

Words can do no justice.

Images tell ½ the story.

From the moment the gates open expect to get lost in a world only few have experienced.

Every detail has been meticulously refined yet the warmth and life of the property ensures a feeling of being home.

We outgrew the luxuries of the JW Marriott in Oahu and found our true Goshen at the Molokai Sea Ranch.

Beyond Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have just returned from the "ranch" with nothing but compliments!

We have been travelling to Kauai, as a family, since 1973 and decided to reach out to Molokai.

None of us were disappointed with our choice. To have shared Molokai and its people is a truly wonderful experience. We really were transported backwards in time--life is quiet and slow--so if you want for "fancy" or "tons to do”--pass on this well kept secret.

However; If you want to enjoy an amazing home with your family this is a fantastic option.

In all of years of renting truly lovely, large properties with acreage, in the islands, this is the most beautiful home we have every enjoyed.

Thank you to the Owner and the property caretaker for a wonderful experience!

PS We have really great taste!

Maholo Ann and Clayton!
