  • 5 of 5
Had an amazing experience staying at this condo! Would recommend to anyone. Very clean, remodel beautiful , view from condo is amazing! We sat drinking mimosas & eating breakfast watching the waves roll in ! If your looking for a peaceful, out of town , Hawaii beach experience .. Highly recommend. Owners are very helpful & provided helpful information for me to create a perfect get away! Did they mention there is a dish washer!! Unreal! Most don't provid that! :)

Thank you again! We loved it and were so thankful to find this great condo!

Peaceful Escape

  • 3 of 5
The location is great, upstairs with a beautiful ocean view. The instructions for check in were easy and accurate. The place was clean and well equipped. After showering and using the clean towels provided we noticed blue lint all over our bodies. There was not enough toilet paper either. 4 coffee machines to choose from made for a very luxurious feel! We enjoyed our breakfast on the lanai each morning with the wild turkeys wandering on the expansive lawn below.

Kepuhi Resort on Molokai

  • 3 of 5
Kepuhi Resort and the various beaches near it --- a really beautiful location....great tidal pools and beaches 2 minutes away. If you really want to get away from it all as well as getting away from people, then the west end of Molokai is for you. The problem is that there are not lots of places to stay on Molokai, possibly most of the available places are condos that are being rented at the west end resorts.

The west end was not all that conducive to moving around easily on the island, although only about 15 miles from Kaunakakai. And you HAVE to bring your own food in with you...no restaurants and no stores other than a piddly resort store. As others have said, the 'resort' used to be a hotel/condo resort but the hotel part pulled out. So there are lots of shuttered units, and the hotel is closed and falling apart. On the other hand, the old golf course makes a nice walking area.

As for the condo, it was arranged a bit weird. Has a rather strange loft with a fullsize bed, with a spiral staircase (that is in BAD need of repair) going up to it. The spiral stairs take up a lot of room on the first floor. The first floor has a little kitcehen that is fine, but little else in the condo.....only 2 rattan chairs (very worn) and a murphy bed that pops down, if you need it. The open area on the first floor really needs changing so that is is more comfortable and usable. A little dining table on the patio is OK, and the patio is really big. I guess that my main gripe is that the floor space of the condo is not homey or comfortable.

On the other hand, the owner is really nice and helpful.

very nice

  • 4 of 5
Nice place, great owners. Loft with funky spiral stairs adds considerable space to the unit. I was there when it was hot and humid but the unit remained cool because it is on the second story and caught the breeze.

It will be my first choice next time I visit Molokai.

Best value on Molokai

  • 5 of 5
This is a great little condo with a loft bedroom looking westward over the lawn and ocean. Being on the second floor gives much more privacy than the ground floor condos, with a better cross breeze too. When we weren't out exploring the island, we spent most time on the lanai, listening to the ocean waves and reading from their library. These condos were converted from former hotel rooms, and the owners have updated the condo with glass blocks in the bathroom for more light, a loft bedroom for more space, and murphy bed downstairs. You can't beat the price for a kitchen, cable tv, bbq grill steps away, pool, local market, and two beaches within walking distance. We went in early April, it was very quiet and relaxed with hardly anyone else in the building(s). The west end is definintely the place to stay - guaranteed less rain! It's about 30 minutes from the airport, 15 minutes from Mauna Loa, and 40 minutes from Kauanakakai. We highly recommend this vacation rental and look forward to coming back soon.
