Barbie & Jeff Fairchild, Owners
We had been visiting Maui for years and then toured all the islands. We fell in love with the peace and tranquility of Molokai and it's old Hawaii lifestyle. We were fortunate enough to be able to find an affordable resort condo, and renovated it to compliment the comfort we experience on Molokai.
Jeff and Barbie Fairchild purchased this condo in 2007
The descriptions and other reviews do a great job of reviewing this property. We had great communications with the owners (Jeff and Barbie Fairchild). The condo is clean and bed comfortable. The fans (ceiling and floor) are well positioned to keep the breezes blowing through to keep us cool. There were no mosquitoes inside even though are windows were open (screens are on the windows). We have a great view of the pool and the ocean behind. The birdsong in the morning is wonderful. The condo has several cooking "basics" such as s/p, seasonings, and condiments. There is dish/dishwasher/laundry soap. I assume that some of these supplies are left over from prior tenants. We drank purchased bottled water as the tap water is chlorinated. There are beach chairs and stuff to borrow. There are ice packs in the fridge if you want to pack a picnic. The icemaker in the fridge works well. We met the housekeeper as we were leaving and we thanked her for her great work in preparing the condo for our arrival.This is a third floor location with no elevators in the building. The communal washer and dryer cost $1.50 and $.75 respectively. Great stay and highly recommended. Make sure you go out to Halawa Valley and participate in the cultural hike.
Our stay in September was hampered somewhat by some very wet weather so we did not get to enjoy some of the amenities of the site ie.pool/bbq/beach gear.
After some mix up regarding the unit not being cleaned after previous guests we settled into our 3 night stay.
The apartment has all we needed re cooking for ourselves, has a lovely view over the water, a large lania and overall was a great size for a couple. Bed was comfy with heaps of good storage.
A couple of things to take into consideration if you choose to stay here:
- we found the site quite isolated and probably would have preferred to stay a little closer to the main town especially if you are looking for a meal outside the apartment. We had a scary experience driving the low lying road into town and ended up getting caught in some flooded parts. We ended up not getting into town and turned around back to the safety of the site. This was no ones fault but worth mentioning.
- the apartment has fans and no ac which for us we realised we needed in the humid conditions.
Would still recommend this apartment to fellow travellers but be aware of what you need in a place to stay.
Communication was great with Jeff re the mix up when we arrived re the cleaning and many thanks for your reimbursement.

If your goal is to explore authentic Hawaiian living, and quiet surroundings this is the place for you. We visited in Sept. 2016 for a week to celebrate our 38th wedding anniversary. We had stayed at Hotel Molokai then, but we like to cook our own food, so Wavecrest was the perfect location. The condo was clean and supplied with every needed item for comfortable living. The owners, Jeff and Barbie were responsive and helpful, and went out of their way to accommodate us. Thank you. The only downfall is the lack of beach on Molokai that was good for swimming. I understand that the snorkeling trips to the reef are spectacular, but we did not go due to the wild trade winds. Fortunately there is a pool at Wavecrest where you can cool off and meet residents who stay year round. This was just what we needed. We left Molokai via the short flight to Maui. The pilot went the long route and we really got an overview of the whole island. It was truly a memorable trip. Mahalo.
The condo complex itself was practically empty with no one at the pool and a very deserted feeling, which we throughly enjoyed! The grounds of the condo complex are well maintained and have a lush tropical feel. The owners Jeff and Barbie are very easy to communicate with through email and respond quickly. Wow we were so thrilled on how professionally decorated the condo is and the furnishings were comfortable. The bathroom has a shower only that is very nice with lovely tiles. The kitchen is fully stocked. There is a cooler, beach chairs, and even a fishing pole in th bedroom closet. Overall it felt like a 5 star hotel on a minimal budget! The view from the condo was expansive over the ocean and the ancient Hawaiian fishing ponds on a black sand beach that is a short 5 minute walk to the beach. We are glad we chose to stay at wavecrest over mauanaloa or the west side. We were closer to town and all the restaurants and felt more centrally located. The mana'e goods store right up the street 3 miles east is a great place for plate lunchs, breakfast, beer/wine, and general store items. Molokai is a great couples getaway that is quiet and beautiful.
The condo was exactly as described. It was beautiful and clean. The bed was exceptionally comfortable which was great after a long day. We were very happy with this property.
Nicely furnished and equipped condo. Very clean. Everything you need is there from beach towels to map of the island. View of the ocean. East side of the island, with an easy drive into town. A nice stay. Recommended.
Enjoy all the activities found on other Hawaiian islands without the traffic and crowds. Fabulous snorkeling from shore, or adventure trips to Lanai; Scuba diving in Hawaii's only barrier reef; fishing and sport fishing; surfing and boogie boarding; kayaking; sailing; biking and mountain biking; hiking the spectacular Kalaupapa sea cliff trail, Molokai's rain forest and Kamakou Preserve; horseback riding; whale watching, and much more...or, relax under a palm tree on a secluded, quiet and uncrowded beachfront with vistas of Maui and the mountains of Molokai, lay by the pool, and not be bothered by crowds, traffic, noise; visit the local library and learn about the Hawaiian history, customs, even how to play a ukulele! And never encounter a stoplight on any of your adventures.
Other Activities: wildlife viewing, kayaking, shuffleboard,
