  • 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"

  • 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."

  • Wonderful Condo with an amazing view

    "We enjoyed a one week stay at Amanda's condo. She was wonderful in every way by providing helpful information on the condo and Molokai in general before our stay. Afterwards, we had a couple of questions which she immediately assisted us with. She is prompt in her response and extremely helpful with anything that may come up. The condo is furnished very nicely and has all the appliances and kitchen items one might need. The best part however it the view. You can hear the surf all the time. The islands of Maui and Lanai are always visible and the morning sunrise over Maui is spectacular. We set our alarms in the morning just so we wouldn't miss it. We were there in December so the humpback whales had not made their appearance but from what I heard from other tenants was the show put on by the whales during their season of Jan-April is nothing short of spectacular. And you would be able to easily see it from the balcony of the condo. I can't recommend this condo enough. Only one thing wrong with our stay and that was we were only there for 1 week. Next time since we are retired, we are considering on returning for 3-4 weeks. Problem is that Amanda's condo is booked for the time we want next year. My advice is that if you can find a time that she has it available, go for it. You won't regret it. I haven't said much about Molokai but suffice it to say that we fell in love with the island. It isn't for everyone. If you want night life, fancy restaurants and crowed beaches, this isn't the place for you. It is as I would have imagined Hawaii to be many years ago. It is a a laid back place with a natural beauty that we have found no where else. It is a simple life with simple but delicious places to eat. If you want fancy, then the Hotel Molokai might be the best place to go and it isn't what I would call fancy. T-shirts and shorts are the norm everywhere. Otherwise, do as the locals do....go up to the counter at several small places, order a plate of your favorite and sit on the outside tables provided. Then enjoy! It is truly a magical place and we are already planning an extended stay there. Thanks Amanda!! Joe & Joyce..."

  • Exceptional!

    "We loved this condo! It's beautifully appointed and is very comfortable. The kitchen is well-equipped and all of the appliances are up-to-date. We loved the view from the lanai -- the sunsets are spectacular! The location is great, near the center of town and the Hotel Molokai, and a perfect place to stay for your visit to the island. We hope to be back and will definitely stay here again."
