About Yvette Carlton
We came to Hawaii (Oahu) from New England with the Navy back in 1989 and fell in love with the people, the island, and the climate. We were blessed to return to Oahu again in 2009, but the increasing traffic made it less enjoyable & took a toll on us. In May of 2015, we made our first visit to Molokai & immediately fell in love with the island and the people. It's like "country" in the tropics. Imagine Hawaii of the past, unspoiled country and untouched beaches, no traffic & no stoplights! It reminded us a bit of the Oahu we knew 25 years ago, but even less developed. We retired from the Air Force in 2016 and moved to Molokai full time and now focus all of our efforts on managing and maintaining our vacation rentals. If you like lights, noise, chain stores & restaurants, construction and need constant entertainment, then Molokai may not be for you. But if you love the ocean, are looking for peace, tranquility, beauty and want to see the Hawaii of yesterday, you may never want to leave.
Yvette Carlton purchased this Condo in 2015
Why Yvette Carlton chose Maunaloa
Molokai is an amazing place. Unless you have actually been here, it is hard to explain. It is surreal to be the only one on a beautiful pristine beach in Hawaii or to come to a stop while driving, only because you want to, or because you've arrived at your destination. There are only 2 gas stations, 2 grocery stores, and a few restaurants in town. You can buy organic produce and fruit from Kumu Farms (open Tues-Fri) and grass-fed meat fresh from Moloka'i Livestock Cooperative (M-F 7:30 am - 3:00 pm). Because the closest restaurant is 20 miles away, you'll want to cook most of your meals. There are grills right at the condo to help you do just that, as well as a kitchen stocked with everything you need to prepare anything from scrambled eggs to a full gourmet meal. We have tried to provide everything that you need to enjoy your stay and strive to continuously improve.
What makes this Condo unique
Hale Kamaluhia is not just another vacation rental, it is a passion of ours. Since we retired from the Air Force in 2016 and moved to Molokai, we get to focus all of our attention on Hale Kamaluhia and Kahakai Hale ensuring our guest have the best time that we can provide (within our control). We are one of the few owners who actually live on Molokai and are in our unit after every guest to make sure everything is clean and in good working order. We are available to answer any question you may have about Molokai, our unit, current weather conditions, best places to go, how to fly in here. We want our guests to feel like they are coming home so we have tried to provide everything you could need (except food & clothes) and are always trying to improve and welcome suggestions. Our condo and Molokai offer the chance to get away from it all. Enjoy the view of Papohaku Beach from our large lanai, walk along the beautiful pristine beaches (usually alone), drive on roads where there are very few other travelers, listen to what nature sounds like when there are no man made noises to clutter it up. Fall asleep to the sound of the wind or the waves on the rocks. Hale Kamaluhia is on the second floor, so we never close the sliding glass doors which enables us to enjoy the constant ocean breeze and hear the waves and wind. When you are here, you can truly relax and unwind. Mahalo for considering us for you next getaway.

Our month long stay was wonderful.
A great place to stay. Very accommodating owners.
Your own piece of paradise
Our biggest issue was we did not realize how early the island closed now and we arrived late from Maui from California. Had I known that we planned a little different. The beach was out amazing we had it too ourselves for most of the day. We will diffinitely stay again. Mahalo.
Beautiful view and spotless accommodation
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Yvette’s place! The view was breathtaking over the westcoast from the comfortable balcony with lounge chairs, in which we enjoyed incredible, star-filled night skies!
The condo was spotless, had EVERYTHING we needed and even had a nice beach tote with towels all ready for our excursions. It has a nice, airy feeling and is the perfect, quiet spot to rest and relax in between island adventures.
Yvette’s instructions and communications were well throughout and and we always received a quick answer when we needed it. (And the rental of her car went very smoothly and is to recommend!)
If we ever make it back to Moloka’i, we would definitely want to stay again at Yvette’s condo (swim pool access inclusive!)
Hale Kamaluhia, indeed!
Hale Kamaluhia is definitely befitting of its name – calm and peaceful in every way. We appreciated the attention to detail, the tasteful décor, and the absolute all-around charm that this beautiful hale had to offer.
The Ke Nani Kai resort's facilities accommodated us very nicely. We utilized all of their offerings: pool, heated whirlpool, gas BBQ area, even their tennis courts, and they have the cutest lending library!
Our hosts, Mike and Yvette, were great. The communication back and forth was spot-on and we were happy to have been able to score one of their vehicles as a rental via Turo. Coordination of pick-up and drop-off was seamless.
We loved every bit of our stay and wished we could’ve stayed longer. Friendly Isle, we’ll be back! A hui hou until then!
Our first time in Molokai. It is a beautiful and tranquil place. Enjoyed the natural beauty of the island. The condo is in a very quiet area. Well supplied, comfortable and clean.
It has a good view of the beach. Yvette was very polite and responded quickly to all the questions we had regarding the condo, activities and where to get supplies.
The beaches near by are beautiful although not for snorkeling.
Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
Exactly as described
Beautiful clean and has everything u need. Can’t wait to return.
We are a few minutes walk from 3 beautiful beaches, all are good for fishing and some are good for snorkeling and swimming (depending on the season). The tour of Kalaupapa is a must. You can hike, take the mules or fly. There is also a rain forest that you need a 4WD to drive up in to,, but it is well worth it. There is a picnic area and a beautiful hike at the top.
