About Kris Chernik

I have owned this condo for over 14 years. The island of Molokai is pretty much as it has always been, small quiet and friendly. I have finally retired and live part time in Alaska and part time on Molokai! I didn't choose this island it chose me! You won't be disappointed if you are looking to relax and enjoy the beautiful island.

Kris Chernik purchased this condo in 2003

Why Kris Chernik chose Kaunakakai

Hawaii is only 5 1/2 flight from Alaska and the island of Molokai is different than any other island. This is not the island of Maui, it is the county but a separate island of Molokai

What makes this condo unique

Molokai 20 minutes from craziness and commercialism. This is the old style Hawaii, no stop lights, just the Aloha spirit!

Clean and comfortable condo with lovely lenai and view of the ocean.

  • 5 of 5

We found everything we needed to be comfortable in the condo. Lovely big kitchen that was well stocked with appliances and supplies available. I enjoyed reading the book of the island. So glad it was there. Pool with easy access, clean and nice. Would recommend this location.

Everything you could need, at a great price!

  • 5 of 5

The Wavecrest resort is a great place to stay on Molokai, and this condo is no exception. I think what stood out the most to me was the amount of detailed information the owner Kris provided. The unit has it's quirks, but after going through the Welcome letter, there were absolutely no unpleasant surprises. The resort itself is very quiet, though the same could be said for most of the island. We were on island for a family reunion, and having a full kitchen with most kitchen tools we were able to bake a few items for the potlucks, which was great, and you'd definitely be able to make most meals, since dining out options are limited.

Thank you again Kris for letting us stay in your condo. We'll definitely keep it in mind for our next trip.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the 5 star review. I have set up the condo how I would need it, especially adequately for cooking. I remember renting condos in the past that had hardly anything in the kitchen and it was very frustrating. Hope your reunion was wonderful! Aloha Kris

Very Nice!

  • 5 of 5

Spent nearly a week here. The unit itself has everything you will need for a very pleasant stay, with an added touch of snorkeling gear and walking sticks for your swimming and hikes! Being on the ground floor is also a plus. Your host is very responsive to your needs, and is a simple email or text away. The unit does rely on the Wavecrest wifi, so there is no chance of streaming any content to your devices; however this was not a major inconvenience for us. The owner is always available via email if you should require something. We loved it, and will be back!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review glad you enjoyed your stay on Molokai. I try to provide what is necessary to cook at home etc as I have been to many condos in the past that had almost nothing to cook with etc and it is very frustrating. I also don't want people to have to rent stuff especially when you just want to relax and enjoy the island. Take care and stay warm. Mahalo again Kris

Wonderful Vacation Condo with Great View

  • 5 of 5

This condo was very comfortable for two adults. Had a full kitchen that was well stocked with cooking supplies. Great view of the ocean and easy access to the pool. I loved being on the ground floor and being able just to walk out from the condo to the grounds. The pool here is absolutely gorgeous, always clean and the perfect temperature. I highly recommend staying here. Wavecrest is beautiful. We much preferred the east end of the island where this condo is located.

Better value for your money

  • 4 of 5

Staying at Wavecrest costed less than staying at other hotels/condos, but it provided so much more. The place was extremely quiet. WE might have been the loudest people there. Everything was totally clean. I actually expected dust or dead roaches, as has been my experience with condos in Hawaii in the past, but none were to be found. With the kind of summer we are having, keeping roaches out is an impressive feat! Communication with the owner was efficient, quick, and easy. The best part, there were lots of condiments and cooking amenities which made it easy to feed ourselves, because there are no restaurants close by. Quick tip, make sure you pick up food and everything else you might need in town before you drive out to Wavecrest. It'll make your life easier.

There were small details that could have been improved, thus the 4 stars, but nothing that would keep me from coming again. The washer and dryer were broken. Although there was another washer and dryer in the building, one was broken and the other didn't work well. We went to next building and they worked ok, but it was a lot of time spent on trying to wash one load of clothes. Also, we spent so much money on the dryer because it was so weak. It is pretty far from the public laundromat, and there's a rule about hang drying, so it was slightly problematic, but nothing that would ruin our stay. The pool code was incorrect, so we couldn't go the first day. Toilet doesn't flush clean, so we had to double flush. Couch bed is really uncomfortable. Felt sorry for the kids. These may sound like complaints, but we didn't really care, but I know for some people, these things may have been unbearable. If you get hung up on details, either find somewhere else or learn to suck it up. But good luck with that, because Molokai is a small town place and this is one of the best places I have seen. You have got to be looking for REAL relaxation and out-door living and then you will enjoy yourself. We had a wonderful stay.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review. This was the first I heard about the toilet but my boyfriend is looking at it. Yes the pullout couch bed is not the most comfortable, but there is also a blow up Queen bed in the closet. Glad you had plenty of kitchen stuff for all of your cooking. And yes Wavecrest is a quiet beautiful place, for that matter Molokai and its people are. Take care Kris
