About the property

1 Bedroom + Other (See Description), 1 Bath (Sleeps 2)

Come share our little oceanfront slice of paradise on Molokai. When you visit the Wavecrest Resort, the A-building is where you want to be. Right on the water, the experience is totally different. You have a front-row seat for all the beauty of the ocean and all the whale-watching action in season.

Be caressed by warm tropical trade winds while sipping an adult beverage on our ocean front lanai (balcony). There you will see our million dollar oceanfront view. Sunrises over Maui, whales splashing in winter and sunsets bathing the island of Lanai.

Our one bedroom condominium is located on the lush east end of Molokai in the colorfully landscaped Wavecrest Resort. It is furnished in a comfy, spacious tropical motif with all the things you would want to enhance your vacation. You will feel at home here as the rustle of the palm fronds wash away thoughts of your hectic world.

As you wander the professionally-manicured grounds filled with tropical flowers, you will find an oceanfront pool with Cabana, reading library, gas BBQ’s, lounge chairs, tennis courts and shuffleboard.

We know you have a lot of choices and we hope you will come to The Friendly Isle and stay with us. Come share the Aloha !

About Amanda

We live in North Central Washington in a resort area. Our home is on a mountain top where we have snow on the ground 6 months a year. My wife is the Administrator of the Assisted Care Living Facility in town and I'm semi-retired from a career in the Aerospace industry. Mahalo, Terry & Amanda Ballou.

Amanda purchased this condo in 2010

Why Amanda chose Kaunakakai

We have spent a lot of time in Hawaii and on a recent vacation we fell in love with Molokai. We liked it so much we decided to buy our condo with the idea of spending the majority of our retirement time there.

What makes this condo unique

The Million Dollar Oceanfront View is the focal point of our condo. The view is never the same, from Rainbows to Whales jumping out of the water to the Island Beauty of Maui and Lanai, it continues to amaze.

Amazing View, Relaxing Stay

  • 5 of 5

This is our second year staying in this condo. It is nicely decorated and very clean. The condo has a nicely updated kitchen and bathroom. It is an oceanfront condo and very relaxing to sit on the lanai and enjoy the ocean and islands view. The view of the sunrise over Maui is beautiful. The owner is easy to work with and responsive to emails. We plan to return to the Wavecrest resort and this condo. Thank you for sharing your Molokai home!

My wife and I had a wonderful time at this ocean front unit. The property is right in front of the ocean and away from the road. If you are looking for a truly relaxing holiday INA quiet island unit, this is your perfect spot!

Beautiful View, Relaxing Island, Old-Time Hawaii

  • 4 of 5

This condo has beautiful, unobstructed views of the islands of Maui and Lanai (and Kahoolawe on a clear day). I enjoyed watching the sunrise every morning from the lanai with my cup of coffee. The owner was great to work with and answered all questions promptly.

The kitchen and the bathroom have been nicely updated with granite countertops and tile floors. There is carpet in the living room and bedroom.

The condo is clean and nicely decorated with a tropical theme.

Wavecrest resort is 13 miles east of the town of Kaunakakai. The grounds at Wavecrest are nicely landscaped and beautiful with tropical flowers and palm trees. There is an oceanfront pool with a large, covered cabana next to it to get out of the sun. The beach out front is not a swimming beach, but there are beautiful beaches at milepost 16 and milepost 20.

Molokai is a quiet, non-touristy island. It is NOT for those who want glitzy, big resorts and nightlife, but it is great for a relaxing, tropical vacation.

Wonderful Condo with an amazing view

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a one week stay at Amanda's condo. She was wonderful in every way by providing helpful information on the condo and Molokai in general before our stay. Afterwards, we had a couple of questions which she immediately assisted us with. She is prompt in her response and extremely helpful with anything that may come up.

The condo is furnished very nicely and has all the appliances and kitchen items one might need. The best part however it the view. You can hear the surf all the time. The islands of Maui and Lanai are always visible and the morning sunrise over Maui is spectacular. We set our alarms in the morning just so we wouldn't miss it. We were there in December so the humpback whales had not made their appearance but from what I heard from other tenants was the show put on by the whales during their season of Jan-April is nothing short of spectacular. And you would be able to easily see it from the balcony of the condo. I can't recommend this condo enough. Only one thing wrong with our stay and that was we were only there for 1 week. Next time since we are retired, we are considering on returning for 3-4 weeks. Problem is that Amanda's condo is booked for the time we want next year. My advice is that if you can find a time that she has it available, go for it. You won't regret it.

I haven't said much about Molokai but suffice it to say that we fell in love with the island. It isn't for everyone. If you want night life, fancy restaurants and crowed beaches, this isn't the place for you. It is as I would have imagined Hawaii to be many years ago. It is a a laid back place with a natural beauty that we have found no where else. It is a simple life with simple but delicious places to eat. If you want fancy, then the Hotel Molokai might be the best place to go and it isn't what I would call fancy. T-shirts and shorts are the norm everywhere. Otherwise, do as the locals do....go up to the counter at several small places, order a plate of your favorite and sit on the outside tables provided. Then enjoy! It is truly a magical place and we are already planning an extended stay there.

Thanks Amanda!!

Feels like my second house!!!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Amanda for taking care of me a lot. It was so wonderful time to stay the condo. I was really nice to relax and calm. Also it has a good collection of the kitchen utensils which I needed. That is good point for me because I like a cooking that make me more relaxing of in my brain and body and eating with front of the ocean. The condo is very clean and a little bit unique another condos as I know which is very comfortable.

If someone needs just relaxing or forget about everything or shut out from the noises just come there you will be really refreshing!!!

When I come back to Molokai I really would like to come back to there again.\(^o^)/

Thank you again Amanda.
