Charming Remodeled Ocean Front Condo 2 bed/1 Bath, with True ALOHA Spirit!
How to explore the rich history and secrets in Molokai Hawaii: where to spend your Honeymoon; fishponds and the Ali'i, hiking through rainforests, water falls; what months to watch whales and their babies; how to get to Kalaupapa, the historical park and home of the few remaining former lepra residents ; local tours for snorgeling, adventure, sight seeing, and where to indulge in the most gorgeous sunsets ... right from your condo, .... and so much more.
If this is the first time you come to Molokai or even you have visited before, here are the best secrets for you to explore:
Kaunakai, Wedding and Honey moons, Royal Coconut Grove and Park, Historical Museum and Sugar mill, Fishponds, Kalaupapa Natl Museum (former Lepra colonie), Father Damien's live, Papohaku Beach, Maunaloa and the 'Big Wind Lite Factory, Halaway Valley, Hikes and water falls with Kalani, visit his gorgeous flower farm in Halaway Valley, and so much more.
Molokai is the most Hawaiian island and it is what Kauai used to be some 60 years ago: tranquil and undisturbed in its natural beauty; there are two highways: one from north east to south east; another one from east to west. There are 2 or 3 car companies near the airport and one in Kaunakakai.
There are a few eateries,, a hotel, two grocery stores, one gas station, a local museum, a farmers market, fishponds and a paradise for the outdoors, pristine rainforests with waterfalls, finest sand beaches, hiking, no traffic lights (!!!) and so much more.
Visit Molokai's finest beaches -- Papohaku, Kepuhi and Kawakiu, which are some of the very best sand beaches of Hawaii; Eat at Kualapuu Cookhouse where baby back ribs with homemade guava-barbecue sauce are just a mere hint of the offerings, come for the Luau at the Molokai Hotel while watching the sunset.
Molokai Shores is a spectacular beach resort in Molokai, Hawaii blending in perfectly with nature around it. My condo is on the 2nd floor with 1 bedroom, 1 bath, a kitchen and living room, fully furnished with all amenities and a lanai opening to the ocean. The resort offers housekeeping services, laundry facility and hair dresser;
There is a gated community pool right near the ocean, BBQ, picnic tables, tennis and kayaking. You have marvelous views to the island of Lanai, just across the channel and to the left you’ll see the island of Maui.
Visit the Lepra colony in Kalaupapa either on mule, by helicopter, or hiking, absorb the view of the majestic Na Pali, stop at the chapel dedicated to Father Damien, or take short flights to the other islands, become part of organized trips for fishing and snorkeling, bicycling all over the island, explore the old fishponds where fish were raised only for the high Alii. And watch the most exquisite, breathtaking sunsets from the lanai during the fall months, observe wales as they migrate from Alaska during February to April. Don’t forget to stop by the coffee plantation and the macadamia nut plantation, indulge in chocolate shave ice – the best of which you will get at the gas station.
Molokai, a special place with so much history, adventure, tranquility and .... the fastest way to slow down.

About Sigrid Marmann
I'm a Realtor in Las Vegas, NV where I now live for 14 years before I moved from the Bay Area, California. Prior to that I was raised im Saarland/ Germany, worked in Switzerland, England, France and traveled to many interesting places in Europe and the US. It was my dream to come to California, San Francisco which I realized many years ago. I started as mother's help and worked my way up as an independent consultant for Fortune 500 companies until the bug bit me again and I moved to Las Vegas. I have a great 1-story home with pool and tropical backyard, available for shortterm rental with 2 bedrooms/ 2 bath for 2-4 guests maximum. Come, be my guests and spend some awesome time in any of the two properties .
Why Sigrid Marmann chose Kaunakakai
I was attracted to Molokai, Hawaii because of its rich history, its deserted milelong sand beaches at the west end, its mystic beauty, untouched rainforests and plants that grow only on Molokai, about the sad, primitive existence of the lepra colony in Kalaupapa, deprived from their family and friends for life.. While visiting a small museum and chatting with the manager, she mentioned that there was an ocean front condo for sale. I visited it, fell in love, and purchased it. I fixed it up, upgraded it, enhanced the amentities and returned many times as a visitor myself with my family and friends. It is truly paradise!
What makes this Condo unique
It's located 7 miles off the Molokai airport in the lovely Molokai Shores Resort. You can never get lost since there is only ONE highway taking you to the East side, and another one to the West side. Beaches ... you can only dream about. You can hop into a small propeller airplane to visit all the other islands. You can take a mule ride, helicopter ride or hike down the cliffs to Kalaupapa where a guided tour takes you to the lepra colony. And it's a paradise for snorkeling, fishing, kayaking, hiking ... You'll take memories back home that are unforgettable and you long to come back again soon.

A memorable Molokai vacation
The apartment was accurately described - warm, extremely clean, beautiful grounds, stunning ocean view and the location can’t be beat. The icing on the cake was the kindness, thoughtfulness and friendship we experienced from Sigrid!
Thank you very much for your review, Carolyn,
I'm happy you enjoyed my condo and had a wonderful time in Molokai. I liked our interaction very much - thank you.
Hope I will see you very soon on your next trip to Molokai.
It was a real pleasure having you had as my guests.
Mahalo Nui Loa,
Property and grounds were nice.
The condo needs updated. We walked in with a loud vibration coming from freezer. We had to defrost it. Plus, the front of refrigerator was rusted and unappealing for kitchen. The patio door lock was stuck and difficult to unlock for patio use. Wall decorations are held together with tape and is unattractive. On positive note, location, sleep, and shower accommodations were nice. Area was quiet and relaxing. Enjoyed the view. Island is quiet and beautiful. Thank you
Thank you Teresa, for your comments.
Please accept mine below: The condo is described on VRBO's website as a 'cozy typical Hawaiian Ocean Front condo" in a charming Hawaiian Resort on Molokai Shores, not a luxury or elegant retreat. It has all the amenities, furniture, location to make a guest feel welcomed, comfortable, likeable and happy . I'm adding and replacing kitchen utensils as needed;. A new refrigerator has been ordered and should arrive within days. Sorry you had to deal with it's noisy vibration. I always make sure the condo is perfectly clean. As mentioned in my WELCOME letter, there is a property management company on site with contact information to assist and correct any problems including locking/ unlocking of the patio door. A quick call would have taken care of the problem! Wall decorations are properly hung up -not sure where you imagined 'tape'? Sorry if you expected a luxury and elegant place which it is not. Its beauty lies in its charming Hawaiian ambiance, its glorious location on an ocean protected by a large reef, undisturbed, peaceful in its awesome beauty. I always welcome and appreciate my guests' feedback that allows me to take necessary corrective actions. I want Happy Guests that come back again. Thank you for pointing out some positive aspects. Hope you will select it again on your next trip. You are always welcome to call me with any questions. Mahalo, Sigrid
Wonderful ocean view
So enjoyed our comfortable stay. Amazing sunsets, walking distance to the ocean and pool, and close by to town and restaurants made this a wonderful stay. Great communications with the owner. Very clean and comfortable. We especially enjoyed sitting out on the porch overlooking the beautiful grounds in the island of lanai.
I'm happy to hear you enjoyed your stay so much - Thankn you vor your review!
If there is anything I can do to make your stay even more beautiful, please let me know.
Hoping to see you back in Fall?
Mahalo Nui Loa,
Very nice condo and location.
Very clean and well decorated.
Just noticed your very nice review - thank you very much.
I'm happy to hear you enjoyed your stay.
It is always a great gift to receive nice reviews from my guests - such as yourself.
I hope you will select my condo again on your next vacation to Molokai,
Mahalo Nui Loa
Great deck to watch the sunsets!
We stayed for a week in January 2018. We found the location good - very convenient to town & basically in the middle of the island, so an equal drive to the east end & to the west end. Compared to some of the other properties we saw on Molokai, this one is pretty well maintained, although there are a few small things that irritated us (the plug in the kitchen sink didn't work, the low setting on the fans was still pretty breezy, the smoke alarm went off for no apparent reason), but overall, we were happy with the unit.
Thank you for your review and for letting me know about the items that need attention - that will be taken care off in the next view days.
I wish you would have called me while still in my condo so I could have attended to it right-a-away,
I'm glad you enjoyed your stay and hopefully next time you visit Molokai, you will be 100% satisfied during stay at my place.
Mahalo Nui Loa
Really loved the quiet relaxing atmosphere. The owner is wonderful to deal with and is very prompt in answering questions and giving helpful solutions. View from the place is perfect and the pictures on VBRO are exactly as the place appears in person. Kitchen is well stocked if you like to cook your own meals. The only recommendation l would have is to update the towels for the bathroom and the pool. Would recommend staying here.
Thank you very much for your nice revue. I wish all my guests would be so responsive as you are. I'm happy you liked the place.
Regarding towels, I'll pass it on to the house cleaners. Thank you for letting me know.
I hope you come back again! Have a safe trip back.
