Overview

About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

This amazing beach front home is located on beautiful Waialua Beach. From the deck, you are a few steps away from a pristine sandy beach, crystal clear waters, and amazing fishing and diving. The ocean in front of the house is perfect for swimming, snorkeling, diving, surfing, and many other water sports.

Have yourself a great adventure or just relax and enjoy the view and listen to the waves. There is interesting sea life everywhere as Molokai remains unspoiled and undeveloped. If you want to see true Hawaii, this is the place for you. Turtles cruise the shallows and whales frolic during the late winter and spring.

This three bedroom, two story house pole house has a deck which wraps around 3 sides of the house - perfect for lounging around and enjoying the peace!

My family and friends are from Waialua! We can suggest fishing charters, boat tours, dingy tours, snorkeling, guided hikes, etc! We want to make your Molokai experience truly special - a taste of real Hawaii!

Book with peace of mind, this is a County approved and permitted short term rental. Permit number = STMO 2013/0008.

About Manager

Aloha and thank you for considering my beach house. I was born and raised in Hawaii. I grew up in this very house on Molokai as a kid and then went to high school on Maui. I have great memories of Molokai and go back there as often as I can. I feel as though that is the one place on earth where I have been truly at peace. I have spent a lot of time in the finance world, working in NY, Philly, LA, Hong Kong, Japan, and even India, and have been lucky enough to see the world. Those experiences helped me to realize how amazing Waialua is and what a unique place Molokai really is.

I enjoy fishing, diving, surfing, and a lot of other water sports so Waialua has always been true paradise to me. Waialua has a very strong sense of community and pride. Enjoy yourselves, make friends with everyone, and be respectful! :)

Manager purchased this house in 1985

Amazing

  • 5 of 5

Wow what a place. Waialua Molokai is really something special. We went for thanksgiving weekend with the family and had a wonderful time. House is great, beautiful, deck is perfect - very big overlooking the water and Maui in the background. Ocean and beach were exactly what we dreamed of. We are coming back very soon hopefully!!!

Friendly Isle Paradise

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed our stay at this property.. Vacation rental right on the beach, perfect for 6 adults and hard to beat.. House requires some small kind maintenance, but the homes location and its privacy is the greatest.. Molokai is a great island to visit with fantastic places to see, its attractions, beaches and very friendly people.. We will definitely go back to this property again and again..

I love Molokai which is why I chose to go back this year!

  • 3 of 5

The property was beautiful but to my surprise there were so many bugs. Huge spiders, worms and ants all over the kitchen. And when I grabbed a blanket from the closet there was a giant cockroach. Beautiful place but definitely needed exterminated. I do love Molokai though

Owner's Response: Hi Rose, Thank you for the review and feedback. We will have our cleaning crew get on this right away! So sorry to hear you had problems with bugs. Molokai is quite a wild place and any food left out tends to attract lots of bugs. We will also bring in an exterminator and have them do a sweep. Thanks again for the feedback. Aloha, Peter

Amazing pearl on Molokai

  • 5 of 5

We had 4 great night at the house snorkling, lobster hunting, swimming with turtles and enjoying the small private beach. Would definitely go back if we get the opportunity. The house could use a little work on some of the windows so you don't get to many animals in, but apart from that had everything you would need, simple but good.

Wonderful Stay in Molokai East End

  • 5 of 5

My family have just returned from Molokai. What a magical place! We had a great time swimming just steps away from this comfortable rental house. My two kids (age 10 and 11) enjoyed playing on the beach, floating on tubes and swimming. The island of Molokai is beautiful and its people most welcoming. Joann, the property manager, stopped by to answer any questions we had and invited us to visit their beautiful family farm. The kids had a great time feeding the pigs, rabbits, guinea pigs and chickens. They also milked mama goat and played with the baby goat. We were able to visit with a baby fawn too, which has been recently been rescued. We left with a plate of home baked cookies. Thank you, JoAnn, for the wonderful memories! My kids still talk about visiting with you and meeting the animals. As suggested by Peter, we called Kohl looking to buy some fresh fish. Kohl not only delivered two local fishes but did not charged us for it. We were humbled by the kindness and attention we received from the people in Molokai. Thank you, Kohl! We barbecued the fish and it was delicious. We also contacted Walter to take us to the Pali coast, another suggestion from Peter. Walter was very attentive and even stopped by the house to let us know details about the boat trip, weather and the surf. We were surprised to see Walter at the front door as we were getting ready to meet him Halawa for the boat trip. But that's the nature of the people in Molokai. They are truly one of a kind! We have the most fond memories of our stay in Molokai. Thank you, Peter, for sharing your Ohana with us. We felt the Hawaiian spirit in everyone we met in Molokai. If you are looking for a place to relax at a great beach front location, this is the home for you. The East End of Molokai is gorgeous and very green. Just a few minutes by car to Halawa you can see the gorgeous mountains and the waterfalls. There is also a nice little store not too far from the house, if you are looking to get some basic necessities. The town of Kaunakakai is a about 40 minutes from the house and it is very cute with small town charm. There are couple of grocery stores, a wine store, a bakery and a few family owned restaurants. We specially enjoyed the pizza place (Molokai Pizza Cafe), which also serves some local Hawaiian fare. Whatever you do in Molokai, do not miss the hot bread at Kanemitsu Bakery served only after 7:30 pm. Get the "works" - it is delicious! We loved Molokai and will return soon. Mahalo!

HEAVEN...........

  • 5 of 5

This was our first (and def. not our last) visit to Molokai. From making the reservation with Mr. Fukunaga, airport arrival, car rental -Molokai Car Rental-, picking up groceries to arriving at this home exceeded expectations! Our visit began 9.23.15 and ended 10.02.15- (NOT long enough). Aunty JoAnn met us and she was wonderful! The house is AMAZING! It is very comfortable and the sandy beach w/perfect water temp just steps away! We had a couple of rainy days, which were very nice while sitting on the deck. We rented a couple of fishing poles and caught dinner one night. ALL The people we met were welcoming and so friendly! A must do is the Halawa Valley hike with Sean up to the waterfalls and Halawa Valley history lesson with Greg. If anyone is looking for a wonderful, authentic, go back in time - just CHILL getaway- this is the island and this is the house. Peter, your house is amazing and we can't wait to return next year. Thank you so much! Please pass our thanks to Aunty JoAnn and Howard and the people from your beautiful island!
