Molokai Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, Studio, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Hale KaiNalu Beachfront Cottage

Short Term Rental Home Permit No: STMO 2015/0004

PRIVACY & SECLUSION AWAIT.....

This is a beautiful beachfront studio cottage on the lovely Hawaiian Island of Molokai. It is situated on an oceanfront estate of almost two private acres, with over 450 feet of beach front. There are panoramic views from the deck of the ocean and of Maui across the channel. There is a reef off shore, which protects the shoreline waters, providing swimming and snorkeling year-round. We are located on the lush end of Molokai, which is considered by many to be the most beautiful area of Molokai. We are on of the few properties on Molokai located way off the road, offering maximum quiet and privacy. We are over 500 feet away from the road. You can not see any neighbors!! This is truly one of the most beautiful properties on Molokai.

The cottage shares the property with a larger home that is also for rent (see VRBO Listing #247907). They are separated by lots of privacy foliage. The house and cottage are actually more private from each other than many other rentals are from their neighbors.

The cottage has been designed with the aesthetic at heart and an attention to detail. It has high ceilings, wood floors, charming colors, a complete kitchen, and full bath. It is fully and elegantly furnished with beautiful teak furniture, a leather couch, and a comfortable king size bed. The deck has a teak table and chairs set, plus two comfy patio chairs and an unobstructed view of the ocean. In addition, there are lounge chairs on the beach for your enjoyment. The landscaping creates the feeling that you are in a park on the beach.

It is very private, peaceful, and beautiful here. We truly offer a unique property, rarely found in Hawaii. One of our guests said: 'It's the kind of place you find once in a blue moon.'

There are reviews posted by guests under the reviews tab and some we have posted taken directly from our guestbook under the owner info tab.

Absolutely Awesome!!!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage could not be more perfect!! It is rare to find a place that so exceeds your expectations. Even the great photos shown here don't do it justice. The owners are great: easy to deal with, give you lots of privacy and take such wonderful care of the cottage and grounds. It really is like a park on the ocean. We whole heartily recommend this cottage and property. It was a wonderful experience and one of our best vacations ever!!!

We are definitely coming back

If you want total privacy and seclusion in a tropical jungle with a mountainous backdrop, and your own private beach, where you literally don't see anybody else (apart from perhaps the people staying in the other house on the property) - then do yourself a favor and stay here. You will not be disappointed. If you want to see people, lots of activities and shopping, then you have chosen the wrong place, and the wrong island entirely.

The cottage is clean, comfortable and well equipped. The surrounding gardens and foliage are stunning. The view of the ocean and sunrise is spectacular. Among the amenities to note, there is good wifi, a washing machine & drier, and a grill.

Although all beaches in Hawaii are public, the east side has so few people that we did not see anyone else around our beach. The water is warm, calm and shallow out to the fringing reef - nice for swimming, but not good snorkeling (Molokai does not have good snorkeling directly off the beaches anyway - you need to take a boat out to the reef). There are kayaks for use on the property, which we used to explore the area.

We chose to stay on the east side of Molokai because it is mountainous, lush and very scenic. The west side is flat and less interesting. The east side is supposedly wetter, but we hardly saw any rain; it was sunny with blue skies most of the time. The clouds mostly hang over the mountains, not so much the beach areas.

It is only 30 mins to the main town of Kaunakakai and a short drive east to the Halawa Valley. We did one large shop at the main grocery store in town on our way in, and then did not have to go back to town for groceries because there is a very small grocery store 1.5 miles from the property where we were able to replenish our essentials as needed.

The owners of the property are lovely people, quick to respond to enquiries, and very, very helpful.

Dream Come True-Simply Amazing

  • 5 of 5

There is only one word to describe our stay at the cottage and that is SPECTACULAR! It was cozy and very comfortable with all the amenities you need and more. The scenery is breath taking truly making Hawaii one of the most beautiful places on earth. The cottage was private & quiet and the yard and house were meticulously tended to. Having our own private ocean along with the stunning views of lush vegetation and palm trees made us feel like celebrities. It was wonderful to have the kayaks and we made good use of them. Jessica was wonderful on giving us detailed information on the area and what was available for services on the island. If you want a true, peaceful getaway with the amazing beauty and relaxed life style of the old Hawaii, this is the island and vacation property to choose. We would go back in a heartbeat!

Heaven on earth!

  • 5 of 5

Paradise? Tranquility? Beauty abound? Romance? Nature? Freedom? Privacy? Gorgeous sunrises? If that's what you are looking for in a get away then this gem is exactly what your looking for! We LOVE this place! Outdoor shower was amazing, so incredibly refreshing. Entertainment at all hours just sitting on the lanai watching the colorful geckos, simply mesmerizing! The cottage is decorated with comfort in mind and had every amenity we could have ever needed. The colors of the plants surrounding every corner of the property takes your breath away! The sunrises were glorious on our own little private beach! Spent three weeks here and enjoyed every moment!

Private Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Our one week stay at Hale Kai, Cottage by the Sea was everything promised and more. We travelled to Molokai to celebrate my retirement and enjoyed every moment on this property and on this special, very Hawaiin island. If it's a natural, true Hawaiin experience you're looking for, away from the city, resorts and tourist traps, this place is for you. The property is beautiful, secluded, private, clean and comfortable. Molokai is unique: quiet, friendly, and proud of its native culture. Hale Kai is a wonderful place to get away from it all and enjoy the ocean and beauty of Hawaii.
