About Craig Schwab, Manager for Owner

Connie Cox is a realtor in California with over 25 years of experience. But her Great Escape to privacy and happiness is always her beachfront cottage in Molokai. "I love this place. I come here every year for about a month to sit on the beach and relax and wind down from 11 months of hard work. Nearby sites of interest, and the locals are fabulous."

Craig Schwab, Manager for Owner purchased this cottage in 1998

Why Craig Schwab, Manager for Owner chose Maunaloa

This is much more private than most condos. It is a duplex with a lanai and a beachfront view. The view is uninterrupted and secluded. The locals all tell me that this condo has the best location on the island. It is secluded and offers an idyllic view. Molokai has retained the most "Hawaiian" of the Hawaiian islands -- more of a relaxed atmosphere -- still the quaint island atmosphere of old.

What makes this cottage unique

Washer and dryer in unit. Privacy and beautiful ocean view. Pool with oceanview nearby. Lots of trails to walk on.

Perfect Getaway Place for a Family

  • 5 of 5

Killer - Killer - Killer!!!! We rented the place to come up and watch our son paddle the Molokai Channel. Our family has a lot of ties to Molokai and it is a place we go often and have since we were kids. Molokai for us is a place to put the brakes on our busy lives on Oahu.

This place was perfect for us - everything we needed was in the place and the location was excellent. Had a blast on the beach - shell diving, collecting salt, and the next day had perfect surf. Plus, the view is perfect and sunsets are as good as they can get!

We are already planning on renting it again for next year. Thank you for renting it to us.

great location, condo dated

  • 3 of 5

both smoke alarms pulled off the wall. one woke me up at 2 am. It was in a drawer by the bed. toilet room light did not work. appliances and furniture are dated. location of the unit is great. you have to know that this island is much different from the other Hawaiian islands. Not much night life here on purpose. It provides a great relaxing atmosphere.

PERFECT vacation in this wonderful cottage

  • 5 of 5

This was our fifth trip to our favorite island, Molokai, but our first stay in this cottage. It was AMAZING!! Our family has stayed in a few of the other cottages on the property but this one is now our favorite. The location and amenities are far superior than the others we've stayed in. :) We can't wait to come back and stay here again! Ideally located, this cottage has an amazing panoramic view of the ocean and wild beauty of Molokai. The washer/dryer in unit was very nice and the expansive lawn off the lanai was perfect for the kids to run around on while the adults relaxed. The unit was clean, well-stocked, and maintained nicely. There was also a nice Hawaiiana Library that the owner has assembled to enjoy while staying there, I loved it! The owner is kind and helpful. It was nice to unplug for awhile: There is no wi-fi in the unit (although there is free wi-fi nearby) and the cell reception was spotty at best. I highly recommend this cottage to anyone wanting a nice relaxing vacation in a peaceful and tranquil place. Mahalo for sharing your wonderful slice of paradise!

The photos are not an accurate representation of the property as it currently exists. The "resort" is half abandoned, with an overgrown golf course, many vacant buildings with boarded up windows and a crumbling, graffiti covered beach house whose steps to the beach have been washed away. We were stunned. The rental unit itself was a disappointment, with stained carpeting and drapes, broken screen doors, rusty kitchen appliances and an old shower. Fortunately, the ocean views were excellent, and the beauty of Molokai could be found elsewhere. As experienced world travelers, we know how to make the best of difficult circumstances, but we can not recommend this property as it is advertised.

paradise lost?

  • 2 of 5

You do need to be prepared. The condo is located on a resort property that has basically been abandoned. The grounds and pool (nice pool) are still maintained and once you get over the initial shock of the many rotting buildings, I would stay in the community again. The closest eatery is 20 miles away. That being said, this part of the island is absolutely stunning.

I understood going into it from the photos that the condo was dated. But the condo itself is really quite worn and fairly dingy (stained carpet, threadbare linens, stained curtains, screen door could not be inserted in the track). A very high plus is that it has a fabulous, large lanai and fortunately that's where we spent much time enjoying the gorgeous view.

Cottage 1a Beachfront Rental- Molokai,Hawaii

  • 5 of 5

We have gone back to this same cottage year after year! The views are so beautiful and the sunsets are so gorgeous and the sound of the surf lulls us to sleep each night . Several times the whales came to play so close that binoculars were not needed! If you are looking for a peaceful,restful, totally beautiful vacation, don't overlook this cottage on the beach on Molokai !!
