Located between Oahu and Maui...Molokai is an undiscovered treasure. 'The Friendly Isle' is a family-oriented island with deep connections to its Hawaiian traditions. Unlike the tourism driven other islands, here you can relax, slow down and have your own space. Nowhere else in the Hawaiian Islands will you have the opportunity to be the only one on a long white sand beach.
Ke Nani Kai #132 is a welcoming spacious end unit (the largest of the 3 floor plans) that has been decorated in fantastic Hawaiian style by the owners. Fun fresh paint throughout as well as vintage travel posters adorn the walls. The sofa and chair covered in a mocha palm print add to the island-inspired makeover. Ke Nani Kai floor plans were designed so that the master bedroom can be closed off or opened up to the living area to give the unit a spacious feel and take advantage of the tropical breezes. The master received a tropical touch-up with a bamboo comforter set and bed. The master bathroom has been remodeled to add a new vanity area and walk-in shower. The second bedroom has new beds and is decorated in a surf shack motif.
The glass top dining set in the open great room has brightly colored green and blue chairs. The newly updated kitchen with stainless steel appliances and new tile countertops is connected by a helpful pass-through. The kitchen is well stocked with Circulon pots, kitchen gadgets, flatware, and glasses (both glass & plastic since glass is not allowed at the pool). You will have no problem preparing delicious meals with the local organic fruits and vegetables as well as grass fed Molokai beef or freshly caught fish.
There is a southwest facing wall of sliding glass doors that open up to an oversized shaded tiled patio and rolling lawn with the surprise addition of a mango tree. You are just a minute stroll from the best pool in Molokai and the regulation tennis courts. The Ke Nani Kai grounds are gorgeous. Look for hibiscus, plumeria, and banana trees when you walk the short 5 minutes to Kepuhi Beach. And, enjoy the wild turkeys and other exotic birds walking by in the morning while you eat your breakfast.
Ride a mule to Kalaupapa, hike to a waterfall, explore lush tropical forests, eat coconut pastries at the bakery, read a book at the pool, or just do nothing. Visiting Molokai will change your life for the better.

Why Meg LeComp chose Maunaloa
We purchased Ke Nani Kai 132 in 2007 as a retreat from the busy, over-scheduled world. We bring our children here every summer to experience a life where the biggest decision in the morning is...will it be the beach or the pool? The world seems to slow down and you see what is really important in life when you visit Molokai. We hope you enjoy your stay on the best Hawaiian Island!
What makes this Condo unique
Ke Nani Kai 132 is an excellent choice for those wanting to get away from the over-commercialization of the other Hawaiian Islands. Our quiet, ground floor unit is great for individuals, couples, and families looking for a well cared for condo and enjoy having some extra living space. We have a great partial ocean view which includes Papohaku Beach which you can see while sitting under our covered patio. Grab some beach supplies and walk 5 minutes to Kepuhi Beach for boogie boarding, sand castle making, or just sitting on an uncrowded beach.

Beautiful spacious 2 bed apartment
This apartment is fantastic. It is located at "The West End" of Molokai, about 20 mins easy drive from the airport.
The open-plan main room has a pocket partition wall to close off the bedroom, which works very well and gives the apartment a great open feeling. The second bedroom has three single beds, so perfect for many families.
The kitchen has everything you need. There are laundry facilities and a dishwasher. The WIFI is amazingly fast. The resort had a nice pool and hot tub. Overall the apartment is a great place to stay in Molokai, and a base from which you can explore.
Note that the owners provide a folder of guide information which is very helpful for planning trips.
The nearby beach is stunning, but I don't think you can swim in it without getting dashed to pieces. Same for the 3 mile long beach down the road. We found swimming beaches on the south and east side, past Kaunakakai.
We loved going to Coffee of Hawaii in the mornings for coffee (of course). On Tuesdays and Fridays a group of locales and seniors come to play ukuleles and sing Hawaiin songs. Strictly amateur, but a great atmosphere.
So, final word: a superb apartment, don't think twice about renting it.
Lovely and inviting!
A wonderful home away frim home. They thought of everything and more! We will stay there again! Such gracious hosts to make it a true Molokai experience.
The condo was very clean, bright, and airy. The grounds were well maintained and comfortable. I loved the peacocks, turkeys, and other birds that visited us frequently during our stay.
The nearby beach offered spectacular sunsets and I already miss the peace and quiet of the friendly island!
Very nice and roomy!
We enjoyed your beautiful home, thank you for sharing it with us.
Totally worth it!
This condo has all the amenities you need, very comfortable and clean. The complex is convenient, very well kept and the folks working the office are very helpful and friendly. We hope to be back!
Lovely Molokai escape
A lovely condo near some wonderful beaches. It was clean and comfortable, with good amenities (microwave, toaster, washer & dryer, good wi-fi!) along with those nice beach extras like beach chairs, mats, beach towels, boogie boards, swim noodles. Just about everything you need for days at the beach. The pool is great! It's clean and big enough for us swimmers to actually swim. Supposedly it's the nicest pool on the island and I believe it. Grounds are nicely maintained. Meg has supplied fans that supplement the ceiling fan and help make it quite comfortable. We loved the nearby beaches, which we had to ourselves a good portion of the time. Our stay was entirely too short so we are hoping to be back soon. We loved the peace and quiet of the island. Meg gave us good information ahead of our stay about where to get groceries and things to do. Her directions were helpful though our GPS had no trouble finding Ke Nani Kai either. I will say, the photo of the "view" from the condo is a little disproportionate, you don't see that much of the beach, rather you mostly see the grounds, parking lot and other condos with a portion of the view including the beach from the distance, but we still enjoyed our leisurely breakfasts on the lanai every day. It did take a week for me to hear back from Meg when I made the original inquiry and that concerned me at first but after that she was terrific to work with and returned my security deposit faster than anyone else I've rented from. Definitely recommend this condo.
5 Minute Walk to Kepuhi Beach, Molokai Mule Ride to Kalaupapa (ride down the tallest sea cliffs in the world), Hike to waterfalls in Halawa Valley; Bakery in Kaunakakai with delicious breads and pastries - don't miss!
