Why Dan and Judy Burkitt chose Kaunakakai
We discovered Molokai in 2004 between time-share stays in Kauai and the big island of Hawaii. We drove east on the coast road toward Halawa, the east end of the island. On our right were Lanai and Maui off in the distance. On our left was a beautiful mountain whose peaks were cloud covered. That's when we saw Wavecrest. We kept going to Halawa along what became a mostly one lane road through rain forest to a great swimming beach. It was a spectacular drive. On the way back, we drove into Wavecrest and saw a truly beautiful resort on the water with tall palm trees and gorgeous flowering plantings. The crest of the mountain was directly behind us. We called a realtor as soon as we returned home to Virginia.

Vacay on Molokai
This is our third time to the island. Wave crest is the farthest east we have stayed. 13 miles out of town. Facility very nice.
Beautiful setting but you’d better like waking to the sound of roosters😆
This island has a magic not found anywhere else. Peaceful.
The Wavecrest is a great location. We could watch the sunrise and set from their grounds daily. Our only complaint was with the cleanliness of the unit when we arrived. There were crumbs on kitchen counter and long black hairs in the bathtub and in the tub drain. The bathroom sink was clean but there was a greasy film on the bathroom counter around the sink. We called the owner as soon as we arrived to tell him of our dissatisfaction with the kitchen and bathroom. He then called the woman who cleaned the unit and she came over the next day to apologize and see what she could do but I had already cleaned up.
Perfect for our family
We enjoyed our time on Molokai and our stay at Wavecrest very much. Dan and Judy’s unit was well appointed, clean and stocked well. The fact that it was on the ground floor was ideal, especially because the friends we were traveling with were in the adjacent unit and we could easily visit back and forth, and hang out on the lanai when kids were asleep. I would definitely recommend this rental!
Kalaupapa National Reserve, noted for Father Damian and Mother Marianne, both sainted, who ministered to an infamous leper colony in the 19th century. Get there by plane or by the trail down the cliffs from the overlook area. You can ride a mule down (and up) or go on foot. In addition, there is the Molokai Forest Reserve on Kamakou Mountain, and the world's highest sea cliffs. Don't miss the churches hand-built by Father Damien.
