There is plenty of comfy seating in the spacious open living area which has all the modern technology you would expect in a superior yet affordable vacation rental. All rooms have open beamed vaulted ceilings.

The living space opens to the large yet private covered Lanai that is furnished with a teak dinning set seating 6 ,and 2 steamer loungers with comfy cushions .

The covered lanai allows you to enjoy being outside even during a passing shower , and there is a distant view of 3 mile long Papohaku Beach .

The lanai is also accessed from the master bedroom which has a very comfortable King Bed, and an ensuite with double sinks set in granite counter tops, toilet, bath and shower.

During the 2015 remodelling the master bedroom was separated and insulated from the living area giving you complete privacy and absolute sound proofing. This is the only home in Ka Nani Kai in which the master bedroom is totally private and not open to the living areas and loft bedroom.

The second bedroom has a Queen bed and adjacent bathroom with toilet, sink, shower, and granite countertop .

The pool and grounds are immaculately maintained by the ground crew , they , the office staff and Manager are very friendly , helpful and welcoming . MaiTai is surrounded by swaying palms, lime trees and beautiful all season flowering Bougainvillea.

Molokai is known as “ The Friendly Isle" It has maintained the true Hawaiian way of life . You will not find all the trappings of tourism that many of the other islands offer.

Molokai is the path less travelled, slow down and enjoy the journey .

The local coast line is stunning , and includes the longest 3 mile beach in Hawaii and smaller deserted sandy West side coves, where MaiTai is located , to the Kalaupapa Peninsula which boasts the tallest sea cliffs in the world .

Tours can be arranged , by foot , air or mule to visit what once was a hospital where Father Damien tended to those that suffered from Hansen's disease.

Although the local golf course is no longer operational it does provide wonderful walking trails which you will share with the wild turkey and deer .

Not to worry if you are a golfer , the Ironwood 9 hole course is a short drive away .

Whale watching January through March. An amazing sight that you will never tire of .

You will also see the endangered Monk Seals that come up on to the nearby beach to rest .

Watch the surfers , or even join them !

MaiTai is at the West end of the island . There is a convenience store in Kaluakoi , a short walk away .It is worth visiting , you will be surprised by some of the items they carry , and may save you a 10 minute drive to Maunaloa where there is a larger grocery store , or the main shopping centre Kaunakakai 30 minutes away .

On your way to or from Kaunakakai stop at Kumu Farm for local produce , much of which is organic, and their famous pesto.

Take a short detour to Coffees of Hawaii , gift shop , tours , delicious coffee and you may be lucky enough to catch the local ukulele jam session .

You are also very close to the Macadamia Nut Farm , so grab some locally grown and roasted nuts to enjoy with your evening refreshment on the lanai .

The East End ,and Halawa Valley offers spectacular scenery , hiking ,diving and snorkelling . Tours can be arranged .

We look forward to hearing from you and sharing our home with you.

About Joanne Heath

We first visited Molokai in in the early 2000's.

After 9 years of owning vacation properties in the West Indies we decided to return to Molokai , and fell in love with the island again .

We love the people on the island , the slow pace of life, and of course the wonderful weather .

Joanne Heath purchased this condo in 2015

Why Joanne Heath chose Maunaloa

Ke Nani Kai , and Molokai tick all the boxes .

The complex is beautifully maintained , with friendly staff and management .

The 3 bedrooms are perfect for our family , yet it is comfortable for just 2 people .

What makes this condo unique

Proximity to pool, and for us the tennis courts are a huge plus .

Short walk to the ocean with many beaches close by.

Remodelled ,well cared for unit .

Guestbook comments from the owner

Easy and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Loved our condo stay. Went back and forth on several options- west and east side - but so happy we picked both this condo and location. We (two boys ages 9 and 14) would walk to the beach each morning to admire the seal monks. We spent five weeks in Hawaii, and I must say those moments (often alone) on the beach with seals was a highlight/top memory. We loved the small convenience store within walking distance. We commissioned the store owner’s son to make one of his custom fishing lures for my son. His lures are so great it will be hard to cast. The condo is well decorated and cared for. Joanne’s cleaning person texted me within five minutes of checking out to tell me I left my phone charger. Appreciated her honesty! I felt so comfortable and content every time we returned home from exploring the island. Joanne was also incredibly easy to work with - professional and kind.

I grew up visiting Outer Banks and Hilton Head. This condo - in a good way- reminded me of both (we played tennis and swam in the large pool) but Molokai (thankfully) does not! Much more interesting (!!), less crowded, and special. Stay here and enjoy! The breezes blowing throughout the house are perfect. You will love not having AC.

Thanks again!

(The small airplane to Molokai was also a great adventure for my kids. Another highlight.)

Owner's Response: Reading your review I can't wait for our return visit in November ! I think the expression " just what the Dr ordered " applies to a visit to Molokai. Glad you found the local store , we like to support it as much as possible .. Sharing the beach with a monk seal is pretty special too . Thanks for sharing your visit , and please come and stay again .

Our family really enjoyed our stay. The place is really comfy, beachy feeling. We loved being a short, interesting walk to the beach. There was so much wildlife around us, it was amazing. So many birds, peacocks, turkeys, frogs...

Swimming in the ocean was a bonus.

The pool and hot tub at the end of a day is fantastic.

The condo is well cared for.

We loved it!

Nice size condo with upgraded surfaces and appliances

  • 4 of 5

The condo was spacious and roomy, and the lime trees out front were a bonus. The complex is very well maintained, and people are friendly. The lanai is large, and the furniture is nice. Beds are comfy; pillows were a bit soft for our liking. There were lots of herbs and spices, and even a little coffee there, as well as some sweetener and sugar. The two boogie boards were in great shape. It was nice to have a small cooler available, although the lid was broken, so the contents didn't stay very cool. We recommend you bring a couple extra bars of soap. There were lots of movies on dvd, and one card game, plus several books to read. The little store in the complex area was great and well stocked. The pool and jacuzzi for this condo complex were excellent, and the office staff was accommodating. The condo and lanai have a western exposure, which makes for great sunsets, but does keep the condo pretty warm, and the fan in the master doesn't create much ventilation. Parking is convenient right outside the condo, and the neighbors are friendly. Beautiful beaches in the area, within very easy (2 to 5 minute) walking distance. The water isn't clear enough for snorkeling, but the light surf is great for boogie boarding.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the feed back you provided , We will act upon all your suggestions , and have our handyman investigate the fan, it is labelled " industrial " so must need some attention . Glad you enjoyed the wonderful beaches .
