  • The Best Little Beach House in Waialua

    "We love Molokai, and without a doubt, Aloha Ho'okipa is the most simpatico property we've stayed at. Is it deluxe? Well, it doesn't have marble countertops or a jetted tub, but if that's what you're after you may be looking at the wrong island entirely. It has machetes and maps, tide tables and well-thumbed cookbooks, and honesty and integrity in every board and beam. Aloha Ho'okipa is exactly the kind of comfortable and homey place that, in another, much more chilled-out life, you'd live yourself. In the morning, you'll pad down to the beach with a mug of coffee to catch the sunrise and see what's washed ashore overnight. Watch the cats investigate the crab burrows and wonder who catches whom. After breakfast, put the kayak in and paddle out to the reef, or strap on masks and fins from the laundry room collection and snorkel about. Spend an idle afternoon on the covered lanai, some hapa haole music playing quietly in the background, looking out at Maui and watching for sea turtles to swim past. Maybe hack open a freshly-fallen coconut and drink the water straight from the shell (or over ice with a few fingers of dark rum and a dash or two of bitters, if that's your thing). And when night's fallen, the poke's all eaten and the dishes put away, crank open all the louvers in the Ocean bedroom, climb into that high, queen-sized captain's bed, and fall asleep to the sound of the crashing surf and the wind in the palm fronds. "Slow Down, this is Molokai!""

  • 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)."

  • Lovely!

    "Excellent communication! This is a ground floor unit, walk out into the plush grass by the shore ... beautiful views from the lanai ... steps to the warm pool which felt great at the end of a day of exploring. Very convenient to Kaunakakai; while a drive to the west end beaches, I suspect much cooler in general this time of year. No a/c but good fans and cross breeze. Kitchen well equipped and grills looked nice although we didn't use them. Just a reminder to people travelling to Moloka'i: you are going to a remote, laid back island so plan accordingly. You can't sponteously drop down to Kalaupapa or always count on the availablility of a rental car. Make certain you arrange those things ahead of time and you will have a wonderful trip. Truly the"Friendly Isle" with a rustic feel. Looking forward to escaping here again...Thanks Dixie!!"
