  • Beautiful view!!

    "We stayed in the Pauwalu cottage for 3 nights. The sunrise from the private beach is breathtaking. The little crabs are entertaining and we were the only two people in sight. The afternoons on the private beach were very relaxing. I had a minor accident on a hike and called the owner for advice on a doctor. She called me back immediately with some recommendations. Even though it was in the evening, she didn't seem bothered and was eager to help and make my stay a good one. The cottage was a good size and had plenty of amenities. The bed was a little uncomfortable and we had to use the two pillows from the spare bedroom. Luckily, there were just two of us. It would have been nice to have some extra pillows, as there were only 4 total and they were a little flat. I would definitely stay at this cottage again (and request extra pillows next time)."

  • 35 Year Wait

    "My wife and I celebrated 35 years of her putting up with me with a trip to Hawaii. We researched destinations and found Molokai and the Dunbar Cottages. We made a great choice. The people of Molokai made us feel welcome, but they don't cater to tourists. They cater to guests... as long as you act like one. There are no beach shows. If there's a luau, it means a neighbor is cooking a pig. If there is a hula dance it's a group of students of history carrying on the old ways. There are incredible sites that you can drive or hike to, but instead of a staged attraction you find families camping and tailgating. This is there home, which they gladly share. If you need entertainment go elsewhere. If you want to see Hawaii we recommend Molokai. If you need a crowd go to Maui. We could see the lights and traffic from Dunbar. In fact we saw more cars looking at Maui through the binoculars than we saw all week from our cottage. The lanai - porch - was perfect for mornings and evenings. Under the lanai was a comfortable 70 degrees during the heat of the day and we moved in and out of the sun as we desired. And the beach at the cottage is private. Your closest neighbor is just under a half mile away. If you have more questions please ask Leslie for our contact info."

  • Spirit of aloha

    "We LOVED your house on Moloka’i! It is absolutely beautiful and perfect for what we wanted: peaceful, private, well-tended, clean and comfortable, glorious vistas, filled with aloha! A very sacred space like this is hard to leave, but we did go to the Friday afternoon ukulele fest at the Hotel Moloka’i. And we drove to Halawa Valley, so lush and beautiful, though we didn’t have time for the hike to the waterfall this trip. Next time! Also drove up to the Palaupapa Overlook. Gorgeous and such deep history. Still much to explore, but we had a great first taste of this beautiful island. But mostly we just enjoyed sitting on the lanai and slowing down to Moloka'i time. We walked on the beach each morning, offering prayers of love and healing for the whole world. We watched as rainbows gradually arched across the sky and enjoyed the friendly green lizards with blue feet who came to greet us on the lanai. We watched for whales and photographed the palms dancing in sunlight. Never once did we turn on the TV, though we enjoyed playing Hawaiian music from my phone through the music system while we cooked in the well appointed kitchen. And thanks to the fringing reef a half mile from shore, the ocean sounds are soft and soothing, as if someone put them on a dimmer switch. Made it easy to sleep unlike many oceanfront homes. Thank you for making your home available to travelers like us. We are deeply grateful to be able to live in such a wonderful home when we are so far from our home. Every morning my husband looked at me with eyes aglow and said, “Thank you for finding this place. Thank you for bringing me here.” We’ll be back! Mahalo nui loa, JO"
