Maunaloa Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Our condo is located on 'Malibu Row', as the owners call it...because everyone wants to live on this edge of a golf course with uninterrupted views of the white sand beach's surf surrounding the famous Kaliaka Rock (where Dole Pineapple Company would drop their harvested pineapples onto the out-going barges before the wharf was built on the east end of Molokai). Given that this is a tropical area, be aware that there are insects, etc.

For a quiet get-away from the world old Hawaii awaits you. No traffic, with one traffic light on the island. Watch the waves on your beach front lanai (approx. 100 yards), and the beautiful sunsets at night with the soft glow of Honolulu lights in the distance. Over looks the Kaluakoi Golf Course. A five minute walk will bring you to the famous three mile beach of Papohaku Park, and the resort pool is only a few feet away.

Walk the beach where only your footprints are left. Then, there is always surfing on the east end of West Molokai Resort's private beach. Hiking and biking trails are around the resort, and horseback riding is adjacent to the property. And for golfers, there is a golf course on the north end of the island.

Our upstairs Condo gives you a great overall view and privacy with a lanai where you can eat and watch your sunrise and sunset with gorgeous views of Diamond Head.

And, if you are planning on a wedding you can have a beautiful, memorable celebration on our white sand beach, as other lovers do, with Diamond Head on Oahu in the background, lying beyond our azure waters.

This is a newly remodeled rental including furniture, etc. Please No Smoking, No pets, except seeing eye dogs. Check-in is after 4pm and check- out is by 10am. AED located at bottom of stairs for CPR needs.

Wonderful vacation rental! The location is perfect! Lots of sandy beaches just steps away to walk along. Quiet and friendly. Beautiful pool with ocean view as well. Owners are SO friendly and helpful toward making our rental and stay as best as possible. Would highly recommend.

The unit was in a beautiful spot about 100 yards from the beach! Hearing the ocean at night was very soothing. It was a comfortable unit with all the amenities. Although there were small roaches that came out at night in the bathroom. Also mosquitos seemed to be coming from there too. The screen doors had some tears along the edges that may have let the bugs in. Overall it was a comfortable stay and we enjoyed it! Thank you!

Owner's Response: Dear Keith, Thank you for your information about the pests in the bathroom. This is very embarrassing, to say the least. We pride ourselves on having the best cleaners on the island. Since the cleaners are not there at night in this tropical island, with no complaints in the past, it makes it difficult to know that this occurred to you. That's why I'm so thankful that you notified us. I do have a question...did you contact the cleaners when you saw the pests so they could take care of it immediately? I have sent a request to have them eradicated, but wanted to know if they were notified. Mahalo

Perfect setting for a vacation

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful view; short walk to a swim in the ocean or to the pool; monk seals slept on the beach daily; tranquil. Condo was well-designed and very clean. I highly recommend this.

Amazing place

  • 4 of 5

Great condo right on the Beach. No one around which was awesome. Everything you need for a week or weekend is right in the condo. Super quite and relaxing area. Small convient store on site for basic needs but be aware you are in the middle of nowhere so be prepared as far as groceries. Small free bus can take you in to town if need be. Would recommend giving that a try to first day or two so you are prepared should you need to take it. All and all condo and experience is fantastic.

Fantastic place

  • 5 of 5

We've been coming here for the past several years and just love it. It is a very nice, very comfortable place and the location is perfect. It has everything you need except the food... Need to stop by the store and bring your own. Super easy to deal with and we have never had any problems or issues and never been disappointed. I look forward to spending time here every year.

Neither luxurious, nor refurbished. The golf course is closed and the sand is brown. Otherwise ok!

  • 3 of 5

We had a lot of fun exploring Molokai. It is a deeply Hawaiian island. Non-touristic, spiritual, mysterious and naturally beautiful.

Rich and Dana's condo is in the failed condo/golf development on the west end of the island. As other reviewers have noted, the entire place has a post-apocalyptic feel. The common buildings are abandoned and falling into a deep state of disrepair.

The condo itself is also falling into disrepair. The window and door screens are falling off. The window frames are rotting. If it has been refurbished, one wonders what it looked like before. The place is tidy but not immaculate.

We enjoyed our stay and were comfortable in the condo. You will probably have a fine time too if you have an open mind. But it cannot be fairly described as luxurious, nor refurbished. And the golf course is closed and has become a field of weeds.

Owner's Response: Our resort is not connected to the closed golf course. Our website doesn't include the golf course as part of our resort. It is a separate entity. This golf course and the closed condos are owned by Molokai Ranch, Inc., which is planning to reopen it next year, since the economy is now on it's feet again. There is another golf course on another part of the island that people are welcome to use. The photo we have on our site shows the white/cream colored sand beaches. This is the first we have heard from any renters that the screens are falling off, etc. and will follow up with the HOA management. The flooring and furnishings were all replaced in 2015 and is immaculately kept clean by our professional, experienced housekeeper. There has never been any complaints regarding her cleanliness. In fact, we have several returnees wanting to relax, enjoy our condo and resort each year.
