Why The Owner chose Molokai

My wife and have both lived in Hawaii but missed what we thought of as the old Hawaii. Then we found Molokai! This is truly a great place to get away from it all. There are no stop lights on the island and no structure taller than a coconut palm. Molokai is called the 'Friendly Isle' for good reason as visitors soon find out. We look forward to every visit to Molokai.

Perfect Place for an Active Beach Vaccation

  • 5 of 5

We loved this cottage on the ocean! Location, location, location! Awesome access to Mike's of beach, trails- both paved and dirt, and a spectacular pool which was usually vacant! I can't wait to go back. Thanks!

Luxury view for a budget price

  • 5 of 5

While the resort looks like something out of "Lost," that is the beauty of staying here. The long beaches were gorgeous and empty and we even saw a monk seal sunning itself one day. The pool was clean and lovely and I gained so much respect for the people of this island who refuse to let it become commercial.

The cottage itself was definitely old and not top of the line (but check out the price!!!!) I stayed with my 2 boys and it was perfect (and no bed bugs). If you are looking for a fancy romantic getaway, this may not be for you, but my 2 children and I had a blast on the beach, exploring Kaunakakai, going to the overlook, and grilling fresh mahi.(My 10 year old slept on the pull out sofa bed and I slept with my 7 year old in the comfy king size bed in the bedroom. There were only 4 towels so maybe you will want to bring your own. But this was offset by how amazing Mike (the owner) was when I had questions about how things worked (like the shower).

This place is a gem.

We enjoyed out stay

  • 4 of 5


We enjoyed our stay at your Kepuhi Beach Cottage. The sunsets were amazing and the sound of the surf lulled us to sleep each night. Every thing was in order, we liked the attention to detail, such as the reading lights, extra hangers , comfortable lanai furniture and the good WIFI. The Grounds are nicely kept and your neighbors are very friendly. We especially enjoyed the fragrant flowers by your front door.

Thank you

PS The grass-fed meat from the Molokai Livestock Cooperative was great so we made good use of the Grill in front of your place.

Relaxing quiet and spacious, I would recommend

  • 5 of 5

The walk out lanai to a green lawn gives extra expanse to this roomy 1br. This unit is clean and well-appointed. Easy for us to spend time here enjoying the ocean. Very nicely tiled bath and well equipped kitchen. Meals on the lanai right by the ocean. Sounds of the surf at night. We used the king size bed and fold-out sofa for three nites. Were there in mid October and had no problems. Very nice sleeping with surf sounds and cool breeze. It can get cool in the early morning, so the extra bed linens and covers supplied come in handy. You will need a car, only a sundries shop nearby. But once you are stocked with supplies you will not want to leave.

Just wanted to say, family of four, here for seven nights already-no bed bugs, no bites. Location, view,privacy, walk to surf unsurpassed. Condo could use a little tender loving care, a little fixing up, but we have been very comfortable. This is the third condo we have stayed in here and so far my favorite.

Bedbugs, bedbugs, bedbugs

  • 1 of 5

The place has bedbugs. My wife and I each got over 50 bites while in bed.

Sad to say it appears the owner isn't going to do anything about it. He says we were bitten by sand fleas. I'm convinced he's mistaken -- the bites we got and the bug feces we found indicate bedbugs. But even if he's right, it hardly matters. There are biting insects in the bed. The insects bite at night while the occupants sleep. The bites itch so much that they hurt. So, prospective renters, your upside (if the owner is correct) is that you will be covered by painful sand flea bites, instead of painful bedbug bites.

I'd be inclined to tone down this review if it appeared that the owner was going to address the biting insect problem, but based on our e-mail exchanges, it appears he will instead deny that there is a problem.

The place needs a good cleaning. Superficially it is reasonably clean, but otherwise there is a lot of dirt. For instance, if you are 6 feet two inches or taller you will see the top of the fridge standing flatfooted. It had months, maybe years, of accumulated dirt. Same problem if you need to plug in a laptop and have to reach behind the desk to do that. I pointed out the lack of cleanliness to the owner and he didn't respond to that point. I could live with the dirt, truth be told, if it weren't for the bedbugs.

I see the earlier reviewer mentioned that a smoke alarm was beeping. The reason the alarms didn't beep for us is that they were completely disabled and taken apart. I suppose that's only a real problem if there is a fire, but I think it does say something about the lack of maintenance.

Sorry but I can't recommend this place.

Owner's Response: There are no bedbugs. Needless to say such a complaint would be taken quite seriously. Infestations as alleged are a real problem. They do not go away by themselves. We felt it prudent to investigate since in 15 years of renting this property there has never been such a problem. First we inquired of the prior renters of this unit. They didn't have any problem with insect bites. Next, and more importantly, we checked with the renter that was in the unit a week after the reviewer. There were six male paddlers - an exception to our normal occupancy policy. Two slept in the same bed as the reviewer, one in the sofa bed, and three slept on air mattresses on the floor. Again, not one complaint of any type of insect bites. This renter was specifically asked about the problem and the response was negative. The unit was also inspected by the housekeeping staff and I had it inspected by a non-interested third party. They all found no evidence of the type of problem as alleged by the reviewer. Two weeks after the six paddlers left the property was rented to family from the big island. They were queried twice to ensure that there wasn't any problem with biting insects and on both occasions stated that they encountered no problems. As stated earlier, infestations such as the one the reviewer alleged don't go away on their own. Since we have had no other reports of problems, the unit has been inspected more than once, we feel certain that there is not a biting insect problem. The issues with cleanliness have been addressed with the housekeeping staff. A new smoke detector has been installed and both smoke detectors will be upgraded in approximately a month. The upgraded smoke detectors are not readily available on Molokai and will be brought over on our next visit to the property.
