Beachfront Cottage, 1 Bdrm + 1 Loft + 1 Sofa Sleeper, 1 Bath, Sleeps 2-6
Take a look at our VIDEO TOUR! Newly remodeled with brand new appliances and furniture in 2015!
Priced for a couple, but comfortably sleeps up to six people! This newly remodeled (2015) wonderful cottage is located just steps from pristine white sand beaches with the most stunning ocean and sunset views in the Kepuhi Beach Resort on the west coast of Molokai. Simply the most most updated (2015 refurnished and remodeled), tastefully decorated, well-kept cottage on Kepuhi Beach.
This beautifully remodeled two bedroom, one bath cottage is very private, yet steps away from the beautiful Kepuhi Beach beach, the island's best surf spot in the winter and a golden, calm swimming spot in the summer. Enjoy gorgeous sunset views from the lanai and then fall asleep to the hypnotic sounds of the surf.
For parties of 2-6 people, this spacious cottage provides the all the comforts of home to meet your vacation needs. Featuring island decor, it has a casual open interior layout with a spacious kitchen featuring brand new stainless steel appliances and living area with high ceilings, a flatscreen television, private master bedroom with a California King bed, double vanity area, bathroom with a spacious standing shower, washer and dryer, and a spiral stair to the loft bedroom. The great room opens to a covered lanai offering shade cover all day with outdoor seating to enjoy the west coast's best view of surf, sunsets, whales and tropical breezes.
You simply will not find a better deal on Molokai - this cottage has a beautiful, comfortable interior and has the best view of the ocean and sunsets on the island!

About Property Manager
This cottage is owned, operated and treasured by an adventurous family from the foothills of Colorado.
Property Manager purchased this Cottage in 1995
Why Property Manager chose Maunaloa
With its beachfront location and amazing ocean view, we couldn't pass up the opportunity to have such a special place in our lives. Since we purchased the property 19 years ago, our Molokai cottage has become like a second home and we never tire of the view from the lanai.

A beautiful, relaxing place to stay!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this beautiful cottage at Kepuhi Beach! The cottage was recently remodeled with very comfortable furnishings, beautiful pictures and wall art. The kitchen and bathroom are nicely appointed. The view of the ocean is spectacular! We loved to eat our meals outside while we listened to the waves crashing on shore and watched the birds. We will come back!
Cottage was beautiful and felt like home!
Absolutely amazing place! We had such a great trip. Can’t wait to be back next year :)
Beautiful relaxing vacation
Great location with beautiful ocean sunsets that could be viewed from lanai each evening. Unit was clean and comfortable with great amenities and everything we needed for vacation. Lots of beautiful beaches and hiking to explore with a short walk or drive. Can’t wait to return!
Some Ups and Downs
We recently stayed at this unit after a week long wedding event in Kauai.
We have been to the islands many time but never to Molokai. While I had read previous reviews of the "vacant" buildings nearby, I was unprepared to actually see just how dilapidated these buildings are. It was dark when we arrived so I'll touch on these later. There is a small parking area and a short path to get to this unit. There is a rusted, run down fence around this area. But knowing that we would be close to the beach, we forged on. Once inside the unit we had to deal with a large island roach crawling up the living room wall and another scurrying around inside the shower stall.
Once my husband took care of them, he then had to deal with a rodent that was sitting on the mat in the living room. I get it, there are island bugs etc...but in all of my years of visiting, I've never had to deal with this problem. We were provided with a local contact person in case we had any problems etc.... I texted this woman the next day to report what we had to deal with the night before. She responded that she hopes we do not have any more of these "yucky moments". Now that it was daylight, we were now able to take in our surrounding area. The beach is to the right of this unit and the water view is great. However, there is an abandoned two-unit structure in front of our unit. This unit sits right on the beach and the deck has fallen onto the beach. There is graffiti on the building and rotted boards over the windows etc... There are several other abandoned buildings surrounding our unit as well. One is quite large with many units that sits behind this unit. It is unsettling at night when you return and you see these buildings completely dark and looming. It's like being in episode of "Lost". I've read the owner "Kathy's" response to other reviewers about these buildings. She does a great job of deflecting and denying that this is as severe as it is. I have no agenda not to tell the truth so future renters, make your own choice.
I will say that the unit itself is quite nice. It has a well equipped kitchen etc...
There are sliding doors in the bedroom area but they cannot be opened. There is a sign that says this is for "safety" and to "keep rodents out".
This whole area was owned by a hotel chain. There are other abandoned buildings on the property including a restaurant, clubhouse and other units. Sorry to say we would not rent here again.
Thank you for staying at our cottage. We understand that our piece of Hawaiian paradise is not for everyone. Molokai is a more adventurous island, and while that is what attracts many people to it in the first place, it has some downsides. We are a single-unit owner within a resort. Our homeowners association works hard to keep the active parts of the resort looking safe and landscaped nicely, but the association does not own the empty buildings and fencing. Your complaints are valid, and rest assured we battle with those owners constantly to upgrade and maintain areas not in use. Despite there being some abandoned buildings, all areas that our guests interact with are well cared for. You may walk past an old building, or an old fence. The old surf shack is awaiting permit to be taken down. It has a long history of being a gathering place for the native Hawaiians to enjoy the beach, surfing and picnicking. We love watching the surfers and have met many wonderful people on the beach. That being said, most of our renters (as evident by our other outstanding reviews) can see beyond the imperfections to the beautiful vast ocean view, the amazing proximity to the beach and lovely sounds of the surf, and very much enjoy their stay. We do apologize for the mouse. The resort has an open-air design and because we cannot make changes to the external structure of our cottage, we do make great efforts to critter-proof our cottage. This is the only mouse sighting this year, and when our unit is not occupied, we set traps out. We do an annual check for entry holes and seal them when we live there for several months each year. With regards to the bedroom lanai door, it is locked for the very reason of keeping those unwanted critters out of the cottage, and we have had problems with renters consistently leaving those doors open in the past. As for the cockroaches, you'd be hard pressed to stay anywhere on the island of Molokai without running into a couple.
Decompress at this Molokai Island Paradise
If you want to get away from it all, this lovely condo cottage overlooking the beautiful blue waters off the Molokai coast is the place to do so. My husband and I enjoyed our honeymoon in paradise. The pace is slower, top speed limit is 45 mph, and there are no traffic signals. The residents are genuine as well. Keep in mind that Molokai is unlike the other tourist-driven Hawaiian islands, so some may run out of places to go and things to do. However, we rented an off-road vehicle and enjoyed travelling the roads less traveled and saw scenery that others would otherwise miss. We highly recommend this location.
Cottage by the sea
When we first arrived I was a little concerned seeing all the boarded up abandoned buildings surrounding the cottage. After the first night at the cottage and exploring the beaches I felt more relaxed. We had a great time and enjoyed the cottage, it was nice and clean and had everything we needed. We plan on returning in the future.
