Kainalu Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 1 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

The cottage is located on a quiet & remote 10 acre private beachfront estate & far from the main highway. It is nestled on a secluded cove on the most desirable & lush eastern coast of the island where there are breathtaking views of Maui, Lanai & Kahoolawe which sit directly across the channel. There is great snorkeling, fishing, diving & kayaking directly in front of our property! The cottage has an upstairs bedroom with a queen sized bed & a downstairs bedroom/living room with 2 twin sized beds. It can accomodate 4 adults comfortably.

For those of you who have never been to Molokai, you should know that Molokai is divided into a low-lying hot & dusty western half & a lush & tropical eastern side where there are beautiful mountains with gorgeous waterfalls & cool breezy tradewinds. Did you know that the tallest waterfall in the United States is located on Molokai's Eastern end? It is called Olo'upena falls & at 2,953 feet, it is the FOURTH HIGHEST WATERFALL IN THE WORLD!

For your information, Alamo Car Rental is the ONLY CAR RENTAL COMPANY at the Molokai Airport & they only have a FEW JEEPS that are usually booked up for months in advance. Also because they are the only company at the airport, their prices are quite high & they often have a SHORTAGE OF VEHICLES!!! If you decide on another vacation rental company for your accomodations, it is important for you to check the prices & availability of a vehicle BEFORE you book your trip! You don't want to end up stranded at the airport with no transportation! The direct # for Alamo at the Molokai Airport is: (808) 567-6381 . Be sure to press choice #5 to speak with someone at the Molokai Airport office~~~~Otherwise you will be connected to their central office. Remember Alamo is THE ONLY CAR RENTAL COMPANY AT THE MOLOKAI AIRPORT~~~~~~~~~~~

We have been in business for over 25 years & also offer FREE AIRPORT PICKUP & the FREE USE OF A JEEP GRAND CHEROKEE 4 WHEEL DRIVE & FREE AIRPORT DROP OFF!!! There is NO MILEAGE CHARGE! We are the ONLY RESORT on Molokai offering this FREE service!. Rental cars are in high demand on Molokai & very expensive!!! There is now only 1 car rental company at the Molokai Airport & they are charging over $800 a week to rent a Jeep Cherokee!!!

We also include a 'lei greeting' at the airport, a supermarket stop on the way back to the property, a beautiful flower arrangement at the cottage & a box of chocolate covered macadamia nuts!

Be sure to see our 'Testimonials' page on our Website to see all of the favorable comments that we have received throughout the last 25 years! WE ALSO HAVE A 2 BEDROOM 2 BATH BEACH HOUSE FOR RENT ON THE SAME PROPERTY THAT CAN SLEEP UP TO 6 PEOPLE~~~~~~~~~~IF YOU HAVE A LARGE PARTY OF UP TO 10 PEOPLE YOU CAN RENT OUT BOTH HOUSES!!!

1; Do you offer any transportation?

2: Do you offer free airport pickup or drop-off?

3: Are you located near the main Highway?

4: Are you located in a noisy condo complex?

Good quiet and secluded base for adventures.

  • 4 of 5
Nice quiet side of the island and windy and cooler. The beach is rocky except at low tide. The ocean is shallow and not too rough due to a "barrier coral reef" which sits about 1/2 mile off shore. If you want to walk out toward the reef, bring some good "water shoes"...filp flops get stuck in the muck and the bottom is littered with pieces of coral which don't feel too good to step on. If you are looking for beaches and sun, try the west side of the island.
Cooked most of our meals there; food expensive.
The beach house was clean and well stocked. Caretakers were helpful and respectful of our privacy. Good place to sit and read and talk with company of a few tiny green lizards which never bothered us.
We made day trips: 1. Kaulapapa Peninsula (contact Damien Tours before you arrive on the island for a permit to hike/take a mule/take a helicopter to the site of the former leper colony which Father Damien, Joseph Dutton and Mother Marianne Cope and her sisters served with love and energy, building a hospital, a home for boys and a home for girls); Note: there is a lookout in the park "topside" from which you can see the peninsula below) 2. Halawa Valley hike (buy ticket at gas station in Kaunakakai and expect an hour or more travel as the two lane road becomes one lane then narrower as you climb up then descend into the mouth of the valley on the beach...wear swim suit under walking shorts since there's a pool at the base of the second waterfall); 3. self guided tours of Catholic churches (Our Lady of Sorrows and St. Joseph's--both built by Father Damien--on the Kamehameha Highway and just a few miles away; St. Damien's newly built church in Kaunakakai with interesting crucifix handcarved from island wood and St. Vincent's in Maunaloa); 4. visit to local library to read about the history of Molokai (ask librarian to find books for you to read there) and several eateries in Kaunakakai and enjoyed Hawaiian sing along at the Paddler Restaurant there; 5. visited Coffees of Hawaii at Kualapuu and can continue north on this road to see Meyer Sugar Factory and the Kalaupapa Lookout. 6. visited Maunaloa on the way to the east side of the island and sandy beaches with rough surf.
There is a farm on the east side, Wailua Permafarm, which delivers produce; we tried to drive up there on the muddy uphill road and couldn't find a place to park and barely got the Jeep turned around...wouldn't try that again.
Lots to do at harbor just south of Kaunakakai. Aloha !!

A place to keep secret.

  • 5 of 5
We lived in many places around the world and we always had our secret favorite spots that we didn't tell anyone about because we wanted to keep them to ourselves. This is one that I would like to keep to myself, but we will live too far away to come back often so we'll let the secret out.. Secluded, quiet, relaxing, peaceful....One can't beat the setting.

One goes here to get away from it all.

The A frame is open...there is not a wall between the upstairs bedroom and below. It is not fancy, but the necessities are provided and if you ask, they might have something you need. (They happened to have sunscreen and bugspray for us). There is an ocean view from the house. During low tide you can walk along the beach without getting wet, during high tide the water comes to the rocks. You can still wade...and snorkel during high tide. Great place to watch the sunrise over the ocean. Great evening view, can build a fire and enjoy the view, or cook fish in banana leaves. The snorkeling out from the rental was very shallow (we snorkeled during high and low tide), but easy to see a vast amount of life along the various colorful coral. (It looks too shallow to really snorkel, but I'm glad we tried it anyway). Go along the sandy areas, between the coral, and turn your head left and right...it is shallow, but the colors are amazing. Turtles, all types of colorful fish, rays, etc.

Thank you James and Lauren. You went above and beyond your role! Loved the coconuts and the hike, the mullet was so Yummy. Enjoyed the stories of Molokai and so much more!

HAWAIIAN OLD WORLD EXPERIENCE

  • 5 of 5
The trip to Molokai was absolutely incredible - it is unspoiled and perhaps the most relaxing place I have ever been. The people are wonderful and this beach cottage is absolutely a treasure. Not only is the house itself on an absolutely gorgeous property but it comes with airport pickup and drop off and a 4 wheel drive vehicle. The caretakers are knowledgeable and lovely and make every attempt to assist in making your stay memorable without being intrusive - they are there when you need them and fade into the background until you need them. The caretakers provided us with who to call for a boat trip North Shore and he was incredible; the best person to take us hiking in Halawa Valley to the waterfall and she was phenomenal; and also a fantastic massage therapist 5 minutes from the house. It was perhaps the most restful, peaceful trip I have ever taken and I would return in a heartbeat. If you are looking for unspoiled landscapes, beautiful beaches, peace and quiet - this is an absolute paradise.

Secluded oceanfront cottage

  • 5 of 5
Very clean, private, no street noise, private lovely beach, listing photo and descriptions accurate, owner and care-taker very helpful, would highly recommend, Molokai is a quiet island and our cottage fit perfectly. Would stay here again for longer times too. Suitable for family to single person. Lots of room, child friendly set-up. Can hear waves and birds and coconut falling, not much else - just as we had hoped.

Excellent value for money

  • 5 of 5
Hale Kawaikapu represents astonishing value for money given the usage of the Jeep (a more up to date model than the one pictured here at the time of our visit) and access to the extensive gardens on site. The cottage may not have a "beach" as such but does have a sandy "beach park" on the grounds themselves which sets it far apart from other rentals in the area which had paltry grounds by comparison and close neighbors.

The rental is basic but relatively well appointed, only missing one essential item - bakeware. The local stores sell disposable baking/cookie trays but I do wonder why this wasn't made available by the property owner.

The cottage offers a private and secluded home away from the main road but still with easy access to the highway and in very easy reach of the local store (though nowhere on the island is a particular challenge to drive to- (hiking may be another matter but most main destinations are between 25 minutes and an hour away.) On-site amenities include a full kitchen and washing machine with an outdoor clothes line - rain is not uncommon on this side of the island so I would advise bringing an indoor clothes line if you think you may need one for more urgent drying. Bedding and bath linens were plentiful.

You'll certainly never be lonely here, with local dog Lupe always on hand to deal with unwanted table scraps; and a resident entourage of geckos to remove most flying pests inside the cottage and on the lanai to the side. Beware however: the geckos like to poop, and their poop attracts ants. Likewise all open food containers will need to be secured in zip-lock bags or kept in the refrigerator (this is a common Hawaii issue and not unique to this property.)

Given the (admittedly few) steps up to both cottage entrances, the stairs to the main loft bedroom and the elevated couches/beds this may not be an ideal property for those less able to climb or suffering from hip trouble.

Airport transfers are provided and you are saving a great deal on vehicle rental but you will still be asked to gas up on leaving, so remember to set aside some funds (European visitors will be pleasantly surprised by the gas prices however.)

I would recommend this property to couples or small families requiring nothing more than the basics - though to be fair if you're expecting more, you're on the wrong island anyway!

Paradise

  • 5 of 5
This place was out of this world and so were James & Lauren. They were extremely knowledgeable of the island and all the cool spots to checkout. The hike to the falls were outstanding.The road getting there was and adventure by itself. Then the drive up to the Bogs and hiking in the rain forest and the views were nothing like I have ever seen. This place is truly paradise. James would crack the coconuts and we would drink right from the coconut. Lauren would hand weave a hat out of palm tree leaves, so cool. Then kicking back on the hammock with a cold beverage oh yeah. This place is for someone who wants to leave the crowds behind and enjoy this special island. Also we can't forget Lupe' he is a cool dog super friendly and was always happy to see you after a full day of adventures on the island. I would recommend this place to all my friends.
