Situated ideally on the sunny west side of the island, my fully equipped and roomy 2 bdrm/2 bath condo is within walking distance to several breathtaking beaches including Kepuhi, Pohaku Mauliuli Beach (a.k.a.

The spacious apartments are tastefully furnished to reflect the tropical beauty that surrounds them. To compliment the resort, there are two championship tennis courts, a luxurious 60-foot free-form pool with accompanying heated whirlpool and BBQ area.

Escape the hustle and relax at Molokai

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed our stay. The condo was easy to find and the front desk people were very helpful. It wasn't the "steps from the beach" as we expected, though the 10min walk won't deter us from staying in the future. The BBQ pool deck/hot tub was used a lot. I'd reccomed this unit to anyone looking for quite getaway. The area very isolated and you'll need to get most supplies in town before arrival. The host was accommodating and allowed a late check out when requested. Made our day! Mahalo and a hui hou.

Wonderful and memorable trip

  • 5 of 5

We went to Molokai for a graduation party but moreso to visit family we haven't seen in 17 years. It is such a beautiful island though sadly they don't seem to receive much rain because much of the area was covered with dry, brown grass. Nevertheless, we enjoyed our stay tremendously. From day one of booking with Josh, he was very helpful and returned calls promptly. His condo unit is lovely and spacious. No a/c but there is a screened door and if you keep the main door open along with the sliding door, there is a really nice breeze that flows through the place. Would definitely book through Josh again and would definitely recommend!

His unit is not on the beach nor can you see the beach but another unit my daughter and her family were staying in overlooking the beach was inundated with flies whereas we weren't...so that's something to consider.

Thank you, Josh!

Eighteen glorious days on Molokai

  • 4 of 5

Recently we and another couple spent 18 days at this Ke Nani Kai condo. The condo was spacious for the 4 of us and also when we invited 2 other couples over for dinner and cards. The kitchen is very well appointed with everything we needed. The entire condo has beautifully tiled floors. The lanai looks out on the well maintained grounds of Ke Nani Kai. Loved the pool and hot tub. Many beautiful places to walk and some of the most beautiful beaches on the island are easily available. Because it is winter, very few places on the west end were safe for swimming. Josh responded quickly to concerns. The condo would benefit from new cabinetry and sliding screens/doors. This condo worked great for us!! Good value for the price.

Molokai is a beautiful place to visit and the people were gracious and friendly. We love exploring and learning about culture and places so Molokai was a great fit for us. Don't go to Molokai if you are looking to be entertained.....

Way off the beaten track

  • 4 of 5

Returned last week from a 2-week stay on Maui, including a 2-night detour on Molokai, staying in Ke Nani Kai unit #139. We took the Molokai Ferry from Lahaina to Kaunakakai (which we recommend only for those with very tough stomachs) where the Molokai Car Rental company was helpful enough to leave a funky little rental car waiting for us at the dock.

The positives: The unit itself was more spacious than the similar unit we were staying in on Maui. It was nice for our family of four (two adults, two large teenage boys) to spread out and have some breathing room. It was very well stocked with extra bedding, bath towels, and kitchen necessities. There was lots of beach equipment including ice chest and new beach towels. The floor plan worked really well for us and the furniture was comfortable and nicer than expected. The pool area looked nice but we didn't use it. We explored the whole island and our favorite spots included Dixie Maru Beach, Halawa Bay, Kanemitsu Bakery, Kalaupapa Overlook, and the restaurant at the Hotel Molokai, which had great live ukulele music.

The not-as-positives: This was our first visit to Molokai and, though we knew we would be somewhat isolated on the far western edge of the island, we were still surprised at how far we were from civilization. The complex itself (and others nearby) has a deserted, tired, feel that is reminiscent of a strange ghost town or Twilight Zone episode. It appears that it was probably quite a happening place in the 1970's but just feels really sad now, which is too bad because the beaches are cool here. As for unit #139, the few drawbacks included: Carpet didn't feel awesome - tile would have been a much better choice for a tropical vacation home. There was no A/C, but the unit's several fans were helpful. We tried to watch the Olympics at night but cable service was spotty so we gave up. The unit could use some improvements: In particular, the doors and windows don't close real well and we had to chase out a few geckos. And, sadly, the unit had a problem with interior mosquitoes, which needs to be addressed ASAP.

If we visit Molokai again (which we probably won't because two days was really enough) we will stay at the Hotel Molokai. Not because we disliked Ke Nani Kai, but because we think the more centralized location would work better for us. All-in-all, we had a great stay on Molokai.

Car: recommended

This is a superb location for exploring some of the gorgeous (and empty) beaches on the west end of Molokai. Make sure to visit the Kalaupapa lookout and perhaps hike down to the Kalaupapa peninsula (and see the world's tallest sea cliffs). Hike to Halawa falls on the other side of the island, enjoy safe year-round swimming at Dixie's Beach just down the road, or hang around the condo and enjoy the pool and the jacuzzi (the only one on the island - and it's a really good one), ping pong table, and tennis courts. Wonderful surf break right out back. Kualapu'u Cookhouse just next to the coffee plantation (another 'not to miss'). Cook at home or at on site barbecues. Try the Pizza Cafe and don't miss Hotel Molokai. Line up at the bakery at midnight, enjoy tasty vegetarian food at the Outpost. Get acquainted with small town island life. Slow down - you're on Molokai.

Other Activities: whale watching, stargazing, sunset watching, shell collecting, hiking

Golf: Voted '#3 Most Thrilling Hole in Hawaii - Kaluakoi Hole No. 3, par 3,184 yards' - Seattle Post Intelligencer by Tracy Cabot and Marshall Whitfield. Course architect Robin Nelson and NBC golf analyst Mark Rolfing helped finalize the selection and arranged the holes in the best playing sequence.

Kaluakoi Golf Course is a recently reopened and refurbished 18-hole Par 72 golf course designed by Theodore 'Ted' Robinson that combines challenging golf with a visual experience that takes advantage of the unparalleled West Molokai views with beautiful ocean views and island contours with open range land blending with the untouched wilderness. You will find 'no waiting' for this oceanfront golf course. Using the natural terrain and narrow fairways, there are some tough bunkers and water hazards to maneuver around. The first 9 holes are at sea level with panoramic views over the isolated 3 mile white sand Papohaku Beach towards the island of Oahu in the distance. A stiff wind is often present as this course provides a scenic and challenging experience.
