About the property

One Bedroom Oceanfront Condo With A Beautiful, Unobstructed Ocean View!

Molokai is the best kept secret of the Hawaiian Islands because it is the "Real Hawaii." Experience a real Hawaiian Island of 50 years ago. We renovated and refurnished our oceanfront condo in building "A" right on the ocean, in September 2015.

Time slows down in Molokai. Let the Island wash away thoughts of the hectic world. Unwind and slow down to appreciate the beautiful days with gentle breezes and tranquil nights under the stars.

Enjoy the small town atmosphere of friendly people and smiling faces. Shop for your simple necessities in the town with no stop lights and gracious drivers.

Hike in the beautiful valleys. Snorkel in the huge fish ponds amongst the coral and colorful fish.

View both Maui and Lanai from your lanai. Sip your morning coffee as you see the beautiful sunrise over Maui. Take a front row seat for all the beauty of the blue Pacific Ocean and all the whale watching action in the Winter season.

As you wander the colorfully landscaped resort, you will find an oceanfront pool with cabana, a reading library, gas BB-Q's, lounge chairs, tables and shuffleboard as well as very friendly people.

If you are interested in our convertible to use while at the condo, please inquire. We are licensed with the State of Hawaii to offer our car for you to rent.

We (including our on-island contact) will be in contact throughout your stay by telephone and/or email to ensure that all your concerns or questions are answered.

About Gerald & Meredith Johnson

Jerry is a retired Marine Pilot and High School Physics teacher. Meredith is a retired accountant. We live in Milton, FL on a small farm raising Angus cattle and Boer goats, and we have a small vineyard to take care of. We enjoy looking after our condos in Maui and Molokai and keep busy with renovations. Our greatest joy is our 6 children, their spouses and our twelve grandchildren who we try to see often and are very proud of.

Gerald & Meredith Johnson purchased this condo in 2015

Why Gerald & Meredith Johnson chose Kaunakakai

After two trips to Molokai we were infatuated with the beautiful island. It is like the "Old Hawaii" and definitely is the "Friendly Isle" that they speak of. Wavecrest grounds are beautiful and well taken care of. The staff and neighbors are all very friendly. We have a condo on Maui that we have been renting since 2009 that we love. Both islands are very different, but both have their own unique charm.

What makes this condo unique

Beautiful Ocean view that is mesmerizing. We love the Trade winds softly blowing through the large, one bedroom condo. Quiet and serene, although there are lots of new friends to meet at Wavecrest. We were blown away by the beautiful ocean view! Absolutely amazing!

Great family vacation on lovely Molokai

  • 4 of 5

The property was great with fantastic views and seemed very well kept. Jerry & Meredith were great to deal with. The condo met all our expectations and was exactly what we needed. Hard to beat relaxing on the lanai and watching the whales. Loved the pool and BBQ area. Spent 8 days here and easily could have spent more. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay on Molokai with the laid back atmosphere and all it's natural beauty.

Excellant - you will enjoy

  • 5 of 5

Our first time to Molokai. Wonderful visit. Away from all the hustle, traffic and commercialization. We love the other islands in Hawaii also, but Molokai is special. The unit was perfect, true ocean front, clean and very comfortable. Get the 'island car' if you can, it's a perfect fit for the local area. You'll see lots of coconuts and shells on the beaches, but few if any other people. Jerry & Meredith were great owners and very prompt and professional in all our communication. This was one of our best trips to Hawaii. If you want a 6 star, plush, pampered, crowded artificial high rise experience stay on Maui or Honolulu. But if you want to see the real Hawaii, stay here, relax and enjoy.

Zero Stars!

  • 1 of 5

As the photo indicates the views and location is great! The furnishings and decorations were very nice. However the overall condition of the condo was unacceptable. The issues were maintainance, disorganization, clutter and grime. These included sliding doors, sofa bed, glass window shutters, ceiling fan and kitchen sink. Storage areas were unclean, cluttered with rusted sports equipment leaving no room for our use. Kitchen cabinets were cluttered with no organization to pans, dishes, etc. Food items, cleaning materials, insect control materials and dead roach all mixed together in shelves. Refrigerator full of food items, some containers basically empty. It took two days to clean and organize the kitchen to make it usable. If we had been on vacation alone we would have checked out rather than clean and organize the kitchen. Properly cleaned, maintained and managed the condo could be nice.

Owner's Response: Wow! That was interesting reading! From their first booking our condo, through their departure with their undeclared, additional guest, Harmond and Sonjalee were very eccentric. Nothing we did pleased them. The condo had to be totally put back in order upon their departure. Please read our other reviews!

Our "Molokai Adventure" was fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

Our "Molokai Adventure" was fabulous! Jerry and Meredith were so kind, always timely and 100% helpful. Everything was thought of and communication was excellent. They made our trip to Molokai easy and there was no guess work. They led us and gave us great guidance and suggestions before we even arrived. Their home really felt like a home. You could feel the ALOHA there. It was so clean and very well kept. So many amenities. The view was beautiful! Sunrises over Maui were perfect. They even offered their island car. We took them up and that and the "island car" is now part our our experience and journey while we stayed on Molokai. We think of her fondly and with smiles. :D One evening upon our return to the condo, a large man named Kai'ili (security at the condo) approached us and said, "Aloha. I recognize that car. The owners are so nice. I really like them!" The "island car" is famous and we are so glad we took Jerry and Meredith up on the offer to drive the convertible. We can't wait to come back to Molokai, only to stay longer, long enough to enjoy cooking in the kitchen and eating on the patio with it's ocean front lovely views of Maui and Lanai! We want to bring our family to experience the island and her people. We are in love. We definitely experienced ALOHA everywhere we went and it all started with Jerry and Meredith. The island of Molokai is in our hearts and our minds and we have already talked about when we might be able to return and are looking so forward to it. We will again be booking the condo with Jerry and Meredith. Mahalo!!! Brian and Cheri De Haro

The Highlight of Our Hawaiian Holiday!

  • 5 of 5

Meredith and Jerry’s place was the highlight of our four Hawaiian island summer holiday. They answered our questions thoroughly and were incredibly helpful setting up the rental car. This unit is in the A building which enjoys gorgeous trade winds day and night. The curtains billow gently in the wind giving the unit an air of complete relaxation. Even with our two kids, ages 3 and 6, we found A206 to be just the right size. Our kids loved the swimming pool and playing ball tag running around on the perfectly manicured grounds. We used the unit’s tennis equipment to hit the ball around and play different games on the tennis courts.

Beautiful beaches are nearby and we often had the beaches to ourselves. Our kids loved surfing the small waves of Waialua beach. I would write more about the surfing and kitesurfing on Moloka’i but some things are better kept secret. We loved the peace and quiet of the island. There are sufficient restaurants but not too many, the traffic is slow - by choice, and the locals are talkative and kind. Moloka’i was the most relaxing destination during our holiday and we will definitely go there again! Thank you Meredith and Jerry - your hospitality was incredible and we loved everything your unit had to offer!

Wavecrest is the only resort on the East end of the Island. It is at Mile marker 13 East of Kaunakakai. The East end is the green, tropical side of the island. We are located close to Halawa Valley for hiking and East end beaches for swimming and snorkeling, as well as surfing at different times of the year. Whale watching in the winter is superb!
