About the property

Luxury With a View!!! Designer Furnished and All New

The tallest building on Molokai is 3 stories and in this luxurious condo you are there.

Not only that, but you are only an easy stone’s throw from the ocean with views of at least three of the other Hawaiian Islands (including, Maui and Lanai).

We are told that, at just the right time of morning and the right weather conditions, you can also catch a glimpse of the Big Island.

Although we have never had that pleasure, there is nothing quite like watching the sunrise over Maui while sipping a coffee.

Unless, of course, you are not a morning person; in which case you will have to make due with watching the whales jump (in season), or, simply listening to the tradewinds blowing in the palm trees that are almost close enough to touch from the lanai (balcony).

Before purchasing our little piece of paradise, we rented several great units in the same complex and have strived to “borrow” the very best features from those properties for our condo and, where possible, to make ours very high end.

That is reflected in our rental rate but we are confident that you will see why.

We purchased this condo at the end of 2011 but have only recently (2014) started to rent it.

Things are pretty laid back in the Islands and even more so on Molokai.

Nothing happens quickly here and that is just one of the reasons why we love it.

The sign that greets you when you are pulling out of the airport (“Slow Down: You On Molokai Now”) is a pretty good indication of what you can expect.

So, it took some time for us to complete renovations and to furnish the unit to our standards.

Our condo comes complete with very attractive furniture, California King bed, 1000 thread count bedding, plush bath towels and bath robes, 55” HDTV, BOSE Sound Dock, BOSE Wave clock radio and a Dyson bladeless fan just in case the tradewinds do not keep you cool enough.

It truly has too many extras to list!

Free nationwide calling, HD cable, dedicated wireless Internet access are included and Netflix is available.

The keyless entry system will be programmed with your own personal entry code so there will be no need for you to stop by a rental agent’s office to pick up a key after what may have been an exhausting voyage.

You also don’t have to worry about losing the key!

We are confident that you will enjoy our little place in the sun every bit as much as its location.

We like to be pampered and hope that you will feel that way after your visit.

We (including, our on-island representative) will be available throughout your stay and will be very happy to be in contact via telephone and email to ensure that all of your needs are attended to.

If you find the condo to be lacking in any way, we will do our very best to make it right during your stay (recognizing the limitations that can be encountered as a result of being on an “outer island”).

We would like nothing better than to welcome you as our guests for many years to come (and that you will not hesitate to recommend our condo to your friends and family).

About John Scriver

We live approx. 1 hour north of Toronto, Canada and own vacation properties on the island of Molokai, Hawaii and Naples, Florida

John Scriver purchased this apartment in 2011

Why John Scriver chose Kaunakakai

We first visited Molokai in 2005 on our 3rd trip to Hawaii. We wanted a place where we could completely unwind and Molokai certainly fits the bill. It is a far cry from Waikiki Beach; even from Kauai-----but that is just fine by us. The condominium complex has a beautiful, oceanside pool with a covered cabana if you do not like to sit in the sun and some of the most nicely landscaped grounds you are ever likely to find

Very pleasant stay

  • 3 of 5

This was a pleasant location and adequate lodging. View was terrific. Clean rooms. Kitchen quite inconvenient, OK for one person only. TV substandard. Oven didn't work. No microwave. Major problem: pool not heated. No hot tub.

Owner's Response: Hello Bill. Many thanks again for visiting us. Thanks also for your review. I would respond as folllows: 1) yes, the kitchen is small. All of the units at Wavecrest are "cozy". We like to dine on the lanai as much as possible; 2) as I mentioned in my email to you prior to your arrival, the stove was brand new in February and the oven has not worked since Day 1. Molokai being Molokai, we have still not been able to get the oven repaired (including, while we were in residence for the 3+ week period ending on the day that you arrived). That is why we provided the countertop oven; 3) if you look at the listing photos, there most definitely is a microwave (right above the range). It is quite a nice one in fact; 4) the TV is a relatively new LG 55". The problem that you encountered is more likely attributable to the cable signal. Again, we were there for 3+ weeks immediately before you and encountered no problems whatsoever (higher def using the "smart" DVD player); 5) sorry about the pool. That would have been even more of an issue during your stay than usual given the unseasonably cool weather (coldest that we have experienced in 15 years). We were promised a heater years ago and still do not have it. We hope to have more direction on that following the board election this week; and 6) sorry, has never has been a hot tub at Wavecrest (and probably never will be). Aloha, J (&S)

Whales whales whales

  • 4 of 5

Great experience. Had never been to Molokai. Everything I hoped for and more. Unit was very clean and comfortable. Awesome view!. The only thing missing was a couple of kayaks and the ability to swim at location. There is no elevator so, be sure you are up to the task if you bring a lot of luggage ;-).

Beautiful grounds, reasonably quiet. Only one washer was working on property - the one outside our bedroom window.

Closet full of beach needs. Golf clubs were perfect for the local 9 hole course.

Would rent again.

Owner's Response: Hello Cheryl. So glad that you enjoyed the condo. Sorry about the laundry issues. We have been pushing management for almost a year to get that rectified. Just after your departure, we received a message confirming that new units for the entire complex are on their way. Unfortunately, cannot do anything about the lack of an elevator. Having said that, we also have a unit on the ground floor (same building). So, that is something that you might consider if we have the pleasure of hosting you again. Aloha!!!

Great Views

  • 2 of 5

This condo is on the third floor and has wonderful views of Maui and Lanai. It is very well equipped with cook ware and high end furnishings that are a bit aging.

That is the good news. It was quite grubby when we arrived. Old food in the portable oven with dead bugs inside. The mat in the bathroom was disgusting as it was so dirty. One night I dropped my book by the bedside and needed a flashlight to find it. Oh Dear what I saw. Filth under the bed.

I see that someone cared to make this a great place once. Now. I think no one cares. It is quite dirty. I did let the owner know this.

Owner's Response: Wow!!!! All that I can say is "wow". We have 3 vacation properties and have nothing but 5 star reviews until this one.To say that we are “house proud” is an understatement. This is OUR unit. We stay here whenever we are on-island. So...WE CARE. To top it off, I am OCD. We were last here in August and the place was pristine----as it always is. We "made this place great" only 5 YEARS ago. All of the furniture and furnishings were brand new in mid-2012. Some have since been upgraded / replaced. The bathroom mat that the guest complains about is relatively new (it was delivered by Amazon in July 2017 and put in service in August 2017). In the interim, we have had only 4 guest bookings (for a total of 22 nts!!!!!). We think, perhaps, that this guest did not realize that the grey part of the mat is actually SUPPOSED to be grey. This review is made all the more “interesting” by the fact that this guest first contacted us, directly, saying that she did not want to leave a bad review. We thanked her for that courtesy and apologized profusely. In the meantime, we had our long-time cleaner immediately visit the unit to assess the complaints. In essence, she speculated that the guest must have “issues”. Sadly, we must agree. We send all of our guests a standard email message welcoming them to our properties and inviting them to let us know if they find their unit lacking in any way.We did not hear from this guest until the night before her departure. If the place was so bad, why would she not have contacted us immediately? A couple that stayed in the same unit only 1 week prior to this guest actually relocated to our condo from another that they were not happy with. The husband explained that they were on-island to celebrate their anniversary and that he really wanted everything to be perfect for his wife. After checking in (again, only 7 days before this guest) he sent the following message – Thank you so much for working with us! Your property is beautiful and is just what we wanted. My wife said to me today that our vacation on Molokai began when we got to your property. You have saved the vacation. Finally, in October, we rented both of our Molokai condos to a fellow resident who was entertaining guests on-island. Until recently, the gentlemen had been moving between Molokai and the mainland on a monthly basis. During that time, he rented many units at Wavecrest. He commented that our units are by far the nicest he encountered here.

Very comfortable with a great view.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying here. Spent a couple of evenings enjoying the sunset from the balcony. Great views of Maui, Lanai and Kahoolawe in the distance. The unit looks great and is very comfortable.

Fabulous. A beautifully landscaped and well maintained resort on an isolated oceanfront setting.

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous. A beautifully landscaped and well maintained resort on an isolated oceanfront setting. Unit A308, with a commanding view of the azure Pacific and three other islands, is luxuriously appointed, nicely decorated, well cared for and very comfortable. To use the vernacular, our thirteenth days here were "awesome." We'll be back. Kudos to John and Shelley, the unit owners.
