About the property

This one of a kind one/bedroom has a Queen bed and a custom designed kitchen.

Our comfortable condo invites you to rest in every way. From the beautiful queen bed and the fully stocked custom designed kitchen. To watching the spectacular Hawaiian sunsets on the lanai, surrounded by flowering plants and Palm trees. You are sure to relax, unwind and let your stress melt away. The Lanai opens up to the beautiful lawn and large swaying Palm trees and the beautiful ocean veiws.Turkeys and Peacocks frequent the lawns and lazily eat the bugs and keep them in check. A few steps away is the grilling area with comfortable chairs and good lighting

The kitchen is complete and functional with good grilling equipment, electric stove, full size refrigerator, crock pot, rice cooker, sushi roller, Pot & pans etc.

There is a large bathroom with extra cabinet and drawer space for your extended stay.The large walk-in shower is the width of the bathroom. I really can't say enough about the water. I know I'm supposed to conserve on the Island...but the water feels soo goood. I love it!!! I have to time myself in the shower.

The bedroom has a wonderfully comfortable canopy queen bed with new linens. There is a four drawer built-in to accommodate your clothing. There are also matching nightstands with drawers and a lamps.

We are a short walk away to many lonely beaches including two of the longest white sand beach in Hawaii. The snorkeling and shelling at our favorite beach is great and there is a good chance you will be the only people there. It is about a 15minute scenic walk from the Condo. We have an ice chest and beach chairs and towels available for your use. The beach in front and a little to the right of the Condo Complex is an excellent surfing and boogie boarding area. The beach on the left of the Complex is a rocky area where seasonally huge waves crash and spray. The owners will hold bonfires on this beach and everyone is welcome. There is also a cookout so people attending bring their own meat for the grill. Everyone watches the sunset together, and fun is had by all.

We have tried very hard to make sure our guests have everything they need for a wonderful Hawaiian getaway.

About Carol

Last Christmas, Carol and I talked about what we would love to do in the coming year. We both said that we wanted to go to a place where we could find a beach where we could be alone and rest. A friend of a friend later told us about his vacation in Molokai and it sounded exactly what we were looking for. We came to Molokai in March of 2014 and immediately fell in love with this place and even more so with each other. So much so that we purchased five condos here at Kaluakoi Beach Resort. I have been a commercial real estate broker for 35 years and my job is incredibly stressful. Carol is a homemaker, decorator, and now property manager for our Kaluakoi (Kepuhi Beach Resort) Properties. We have 5 children and 14 grandchildren. All of our kids and grandkids live in our hometown of Las Cruces, New Mexico. I am a foodie and a wine lover. I was so blessed to find a great wine shop in town (Kaunakakai) and fresh farm produce ( Kumu Farms) available here year round. I also love venison and grass fed beef, both of which I can direct you to. I met a line fisherman named Jay at the wine shop and he sells me the freshest sushi quality fish I have ever had. I can give you his number if you are interested. Carol is the most hospitable woman I know and she is also a decorator. Our grandkids adore her as do I. We love to take walks on the beach, go snorkeling, drink wine watching the sunset and just reading a book or resting together. Molokai has really been a blessing to both of us. We would love to share it with you.

Carol purchased this condo in 2014

Why Carol chose Molokai

Carol and I wanted to be on the beach. Not across the street but on the beach where we could see the water and hear the waves crash. Kaluakoi is the closest condo project to the beautiful beaches on the west end of Molokai. The views are wonderful, the water is so blue and you can see whales right from our lanai. The sunsets from our lanai every evening are nothing short of magical. The community grill is well lit and functional and a great place to meet people from all over the world. The landscape is green and lush with so many swaying palm trees. We absolutely love it here.

What makes this condo unique

Molokai has the longest white sand beach in Hawaii, the highest sea cliffs in the world, a very small population, wonderful snorkeling and amazing weather. The views from our property are stunning and our toughest decision every day is to decide which beach we want to walk to or what do we have for dinner? The freshest fish or the best beef or venison we have ever tasted. Where else could we find this combination but the west end of Molokai.


Wonderful! 4.8/5 -

VERY nice!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Carol and Randy's condo on Molokai! Although it wasn't "centrally located" on the island, we knew that when we booked and chose a place that was more remote just for a nice get-away. This was the third out of four islands (Oahu, Kauai, Molokai, and Maui) that we were visiting on this three-week trip. The other three were more activity-oriented, so this condo afforded us a relaxed and more secluded spot than our other accommodations. It was well-stocked and tropically furnished. Since I was originally born and raised on Oahu, but now live on the mainland, it was nice to come "home" and be surrounded by my island influences. That is one reason we love Molokai! It is more like Hawaii used to be! Thank you for a lovely spot.

Excellent stay!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was spotless, well-equipped kitchen/bath, and nicely located on the Kaluakoi property. Great breezes in the afternoon, perfect views off the lanai. Courteous and responsive owners make this property a 5-star vacation spot. Hope to return soon!

Good space. Nice kitchen and well supplied. Overlooked a beautiful common area. Would have been nice to have had a screen from the living room to the lanai. Couldn't leave the door open as the birds and turkeys would have made themselves at home in the condo! A lot of deferred maintenance is needed to several of the other buildings; unit off the parking lot seemed to be condemned. Responsive owner.

Owner's Response: Aloha Cindy, We are glad you liked our Condo and enjoyed the newly remodeled kitchen. My husband loves to cook and I love to bake so between us we try to keep the kitchen stocked with cookware. Many of our guest have enjoyed watching and feeding the Turkeys and Peacocks that roam the grounds. They are thrilled to be able to get close enough to take pictures they could rarely take in the wild. I apologize this caused you an inconvenience. Maybe on your next visit you could stay in one of our second floor Condos. The building in disrepair you spoke of are not part of the Kepuhi Beach Resort . They belong to Molokai Ranchland and to the best of my knowledge are scheduled for demo. But they have nothing to do with my Condo and in no way interfere with the beautiful views. Mahalo , Carol

Relaxing Beach House

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking to truly get away, and have a dreamy, comfortable place to stay near beautiful beaches, this is a great place to stay. The unit was clean,cozy and fully appointed with everything you would need. Carol and her husband were so helpful and we feel lucky that they opened up their home to us. We definitely plan on going back and staying there again. I would recommend this unit to couples who like "glamping". The remoteness of western Molokai with the comfort of a deluxe condo was just perfect. We also rented a jeep from the owners, and it was so easy to pick up and return. If anyone has any specific questions, I would be happy to answer. You can email me at

I hope you are able to come again soon and often. Much Aloha, Carol

Monday morning after a breakfast of papaya and pineapple we head to the local meat market to buy Molokai grass fed beef where they process local cattle from the hoof to the vacume packed package. This meet is the best steaks and hamburger we have ever had. We head back to the condo and after a nice nap we go to the pool that overlooks the beach and the ocean. A nice swim and a good book is all you will need. We enjoy a magnificent sunset from the Lanai, great steak and veggies from the grill and then to bed. The sound of the waves make me sleep like no place else on earth. Tuesday we always go to Molokai Coffee Plantation and Coffee shop where there will be 30 people taking ukelele lessens while others dance a hula to the local music from 10 am to noon. What a joy to sit there with a great cup of java and take it all in. We may have lunch at Paddlers after stopping in the local shops. A quick stop at my friend Jay's for some more fresh fish and back home for a nap and, you got it, wine, sunset, dinner and off to sleep. Wednesday is another great day to go back to the beach for a day of shelling and snorkeling. Thursday morning we are back at the coffee house where they have local entertainment from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm. Usually a guitar player and a couple of ukelele payers having a great time. A quick drive up the hill to the overlook above Kalaupapa for a scenic walk and a picnic and back home for a nap. You know what is next - sunset, walk on the beach and dinner. Friday we might ride the mules down to Kalaupapa to see the historic leper colony or we might book a snorkel trip with Molokai Fish and Dive. Friday evenings we almost always go to Molokai shores where we sit right next to water and listen to the local ukelele's play. Saturday is a great day to take a drive to the east end of the island and see the rain forest and walk to the water falls. Probably stop back by Jay's for some more fresh fish and back home for another great sunset. On Molokai Carol and I have found beauty, great food, friendly people, but most importantly rest. We hope you enjoy the same.
