Rich & Dana's Luxurious Ocean Front Condo with specular sunsets

Bedrooms 1
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

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 with uninterrupted views of sunsets from our lanais, and 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 of the white and blue waters of the ocean, 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 registered seeing eye dogs. Check-in is after 4pm and check- out is by 10am. AED located at bottom of stairs for CPR needs.

Ferry service from Maui was terminated, due to more limited nonstop flights to the island. Hawaiian Airlines' Ohana (} offers daily service to 48-passenger turboprops from Honolulu, Maui's Kahului airport and Lanai, while Mokulele Airlines ( and Makani Kai Air ( offer daily service from Honolulu on nine-passenger turboprops. Book flights and lodging early for popular events, such as the Molokai Ka Hula Pike Festival, www.kahula[, or the Molokai 2 Oahu Paddleboard World Championship,

Nice ocean views

  • 2 of 5

This rental has great ocean views. Nice trails for walking. Great beaches. The minus is that this entire property is pretty run down. Several condo buildings are boarded up and in very poor condition with Keep Out signs on them. I think the cleaning fee is steep considering I had to wash the floors as our feet ended up filthy. If I could attach a photo of the rag I used, I would, eek. Dishes and blender, toaster were dirty. Foul smell coming from the garbage disposal. Only one roll of toilet paper. Just being an honest reviewer. I’m sure at some point in the past these condos had the “Malibu Row” feel. Not so much now. This might not bother someone else. Based on what I read, I expected a bit more.

Oceanfront Condo - Just What We Were Looking For

  • 4 of 5

This condo has an exceptional whitewater view of the beach. We found the bed to be very comfortable and the breezes kept it at a nice temperature throughout the day and evening. The property is located next to the now closed Sheraton Resort, so very few people were nearby and it was nice and quiet. This is a place to relax, swim, hike and enjoy the rural island of Molokai. The condo was equipped with everything we needed to cook every night and we also used the gas BBQ grills located on the lawns just outside the door. The condo is set-up as a typical beach property, with basic amenities and features. We would book it again.

Could be very nice with updating

  • 2 of 5

The location and view were wonderful. The condo itself needs work; ants in the bathroom, wood on rear windows rotting out, needs paint, fuse box rusted and scary, couldn't get ceiling fan to work in bedroom, needs a thorough cleaning, noisy neighbors below. The unit doesn't reflect the price paid.

Owner's Response: I have talked with our house keeper and she told me that you never contacted her about ants, or needing more cleaning, which is too bad. She was there for you, and is always quick to help with any problems. She is one of the best cleaners on the island and has an excellent reputation. You also didn't contact us. The fan switch is in plan view on the wall, with the notice that it is the fan switch, and it does work. I don't understand how you missed it. The handyman was waiting for you checking out to fix the windows/louvers, etc. and the work has been completed, along with new appliances that were back ordered. We didn't want him inconveniencing you by working while you were occupying the condo. The condo was just painted 4 months ago, so I don't understand your complaint. Regarding noisy neighbors I'm surprised, since no one has complained before. I wish you had contacted me or the security phone number I sent you with the other instructions, so we could have them quiet down. Our prices are very reasonable, according to other unobstructed ocean view rentals on the islands.
