Kauluwai Mauka [pronounced “Kah-oo-loo-wye Mah-oo-kah” which means the red spring in the mountains] was architect-designed for comfort and enjoyment. Kama'aina furniture and family heirlooms enhance feelings of history and continuity. A great place to unwind after your Maui or Waikiki stay, Kauluwai Mauka’s central location, twenty minutes from the airport makes it easy to explore the Friendly Island and make quick trips down to the many secluded island beaches.
Our home is an extraordinary rustic mountain retreat that welcomes you to a different experience of peace and tranquility in the rolling uplands of the center of Molokai. Expansive views from the mountains to the sea through the large koa trees, with cool trade winds blowing year-round and spectacular sunsets create an ambiance like no other.

In 1966 Stephen and Dora (Cooke) Derby built an architect-designed home for themselves on land that had been in the Cooke family since 1909. Granddaughter, Diana and her husband Jeff LeFebvre own Kauluwai Mauka and have been managing the family home for years. They welcome you as their guests.
Kauluwai Mauka began as an exclusive family vacation retreat, furnished in elegant simplicity to be a haven for busy city dwellers, their family, and friends. It has continued to offer relaxation and comfort to many guests as the family has grown.

Molokai and stay up at Kalae.'
