Overview

Overview

Maunaloa House Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrooms, 3.25 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6

Come experience the real aloha spirit of Hawai'i only Moloka'i can offer. This spacious, oceanfront home is situated on five secluded acres on the West end of Moloka'i. The front gate opens to a secluded beach and bay. This recently completed, four-bedroom, three bath home is the ultimate Hawaiian get-away. Two bedrooms, the kitchen, dining and living rooms have spectacular ocean views.

When you are not relaxing on the lana'i, or sun-bathing on the beach out-front, you'll love to explore this enchanted island. Every visitor to Moloka'i must experience the Mule Ride to Kalaupapa National Historical Park (also accessible by air), play golf at Ironwood Golf Course, mountain bike secluded roads and trails, spend Saturday morning shopping for locally crafted and grown goods at the Kaunakakai Farm and Craft Market, explore the spectacular beauty of secluded Halawa Valley, walk along the longest (and perhaps most secluded) beach in Hawaii - Papohaku Beach.

Further Details: Or, if you are so inclined, stay at home and snorkel, fish, swim, sun-bathe, hike, bird-watch, or let the spirit of Molokai take over and do absolutely nothing, guilt-free. This is the real Hawaii.

A great place to relax and unwind

  • 5 of 5
This house was exactly what we were looking for. We sat on the porch (or should I say lanai?) for several stunning sunsets and long book reading sessions having nothing but the cool ocean breeze and the hypnotizing waves to divert our attention. The landscaping and gardening outside are lush and colorful. There were even papaya trees on site. We did not swim out front, but there are several close beaches. The Dixie Maru beach was great for swimming, and we body surfed on the 3mile beach that is less than a 5 minute drive from the house. In town, we signed up for a four hour snorkeling adventure at the Molokai Fish and Dive, and the owner was our captain. The coral and sea life was stunning. Seeing sea turtles as we swam was a highlight. The best restaurant we found in town was the pizza place, but there was also a pretty good place near the coffee plantation. From there, drive the 5 miles north to the lookout and phalic rock. The lookout down to the north side was breathtaking and just a short walk from the parking area on a sidewalk. The rock was a little tougher hike, but relatively easy. We took a day trip to the east side of the island to see the twin waterfalls. The last part of this road is one lane and very windy, so be patient.

Cathi, our local contact pre-stocked our kitchen, and it is a good thing she did because the city is pretty much closed down on Sunday. We bought a fresh caught 5 pound Ahi tuna from a local on the main drag, and it was so good! Makes my mouth water just writing about it... There is also a local beef co-op that sells grass fed beef. This would also be a must if you stay in my opinion. The taste is very distinct and yummy.

Back to the house. It has 3 bedrooms + 3 baths, sits on 5 acres and we saw just a few people the whole stay. There are wild turkeys, quails and other birds hanging out and adding to the beauty. A previous guest said that when they visited in March they could see whales migrating by from the lanai, and we think that we need to make a return trip to see that. We also came for a wedding, and this place was the best by far when compared to the others we saw on the island.

If you are looking for a touristy vacation with fancy restaurants and crowds, this is definitely not for you. Instead, if you want to unplug from the hustle and bustle and seemingly travel back to a time where things just seem less complicated, I can't recommend this house enough.

Safe travels,

A Wonderful Time In Old Hawaii

  • 5 of 5
Molokai is known as "the friendly isle," a place to slow down, relax, and enjoy -- and it started with our first contact with Richard, the owner, whose advice was so helpful in planning our trip; continuing with Cathi, the awesome caretaker and concierge, who delivered this beautiful home in spotless condition and helped us navigate daily life on the island. Best of all, everyone on Molokai was friendly and helpful -- driving down the road waving, saying welcome. It was a trip to old Hawaii -- no traffic lights, few tourists, a small main town, and a 45 mph speed limit.

Playa Rental is on the west end of the island, about 25 miles from the main town of Kaunakakai, and is part of the original Molokai Ranch, thousands of acres of rolling hills and endless sky. The setting is astonishing -- five acres and a small cove all to ourselves. The house is spacious, well designed, with comfortable and tasteful furnishings. It was difficult to leave this little piece of heaven, but there is much to explore on Molokai.

About a mile down the road at its end is Dixie Maru Beach, probably the best swimming beach on the west side of the island. We shared the beach with only one other family. A couple of miles in the other direction is Popohaku Beach, a spectacular three mile long white sand beach -- great for walking, but the surf was too turbulent for easy swimming.

We spent much of our time in the water on the southeast coast along the 28 miles of fringing reef. We spent two mornings on a boat (Molokai Fish and Dive, at the gas station in Kaunakakai -- Tim is a great guy, so very helpful) -- snorkeling, swimming with turtles and so many beautiful fish. When not on the boat, we swam out to the reef -- about .25-.5 mile off shore. At points we were at the edge of a section of the reef where it drops down 30 feet. It was very exciting swimming in this wild, powerful sea.

Kaunakakai is small -- very small. In the morning, there are fishermen selling ahi from their pickup. One day we bought a bag of 30 shrimp from a woman selling from her van. The Friendly Market is exactly that -- with people chatting in the aisles with their friends. Outpost Natural Foods and Kamu Farms provide great organic produce.

At the end of the day, we were back at our secluded retreat. We sat on the large porch, listening to the waves crashing and birds singing, watching the sunsets and the stars and the moon.

Richard and Cathi, Aloha and Mahalo. We are already planning our next visit.

Amazing Vacation

  • 5 of 5
I really enjoyed my 11 days get away vocation to Molokaii and stay in this amazing house. First of all, the hospitality of the owner and his assistant has exceeded my expectations. They are very nice people. Secondly, the house is beautiful, warming and cozy. You will stay like you are expecting to stay in a 5 star resort style luxury villa. Have the privacy of your own lawn and secluded beach. Enjoy beautiful Hawaiian sunsets and listen to waves from your lanai. Enjoy tranquility, calmness, and satisfaction in every moment of your stay. Watch dears and wild turkey crossing in front of your lanai. If you start missing people, there is a 5 minutes drive to a beautiful public beach that extends to about 2 miles of coastline. A short 30 minutes drive will get you to downtown of Molokaii with plenty of shops and a good quality supermarket. I personally recommend trying freshly caught seared ahi tuna at Kualapu’u cookhouse. An extra 30 minutes drive and you are on the east side of the island with completely different climate, vegetation, and breathtaking views. There are two gorgeous waterfalls surrounded by a wild forest. I also recommend a mule ride down from the highest cliffs on the world to the sacred Kalapapa reservation. And if you missed a rodeo drive shopping experience and/or overcrowded nightlife, there is always a 45 minutes flight to Honolulu. In addition to that, there are lots of activities that will keep you busy and entertained. But most important, at the end of the day, no matter what you were doing, whether fishing or hunting, exploring the jungles or surfing, you are again enjoying the privacy, tranquility and comfort of your own home. I personally loved it very much. Already recommended this house to a couple of my close friends and I will definitely stay there again without a second guess. Thank you Richard, Mahalo Molokaii.

Perfect Get Away

  • 5 of 5
I have lived on Oahu for 14 years and traveled to all the islands. My family has stayed in many rental homes and resorts throughout the islands. For this vacation we were looking for a quiet, uncrowded, "off the beaten track" kind of experience. This property fulfilled all our expectations. Transactions and communication with the owner were excellent. We were called by both the owner and caretaker after arrival to ensure everything was going well. The house is about a 20-25 minute drive from the airport. The drive is nice. I recommend arrival during daylight hours as at night visibility is a challenge. I also strongly recommend going to the grocery store in town before you head out to the house. The photographs of the house are very accurate. The house is very nice, modern and in great shape. We had 6 people and there was plenty of room for all of us. The lanai with it's view of the ocean and rocking chairs is wonderful. You can listen to waves as you go to sleep. The kitchen has everything you need. The TV with cable and DVD player work great. The washer and dryer are an added convenience. I enjoyed fishing, surfing and snorkeling out front. The kids enjoyed tide pooling. Less than 5 minutes away is Dixie Maru beach, don't miss it! A 15-20 minute easy hike (grandma did it with us) from Dixie Maru will get you to Kaupoa Beach. It's gorgeous and no one else was ever there! Also very near by are Papohaku and Kawakiu beaches; pretty much deserted. We really liked Kawakiu beach! We did drive around the island and explored some but this vacation was mostly about family time and relaxation for us so we mostly stayed near the house. Molokai is a very laid back and quiet island. If you are looking for more action, fancy resorts or restaurants you can take the ferry to Maui. If you are looking for a peaceful, private, quiet get away with your family than this place is for you.
