Darick & Heidi Krause purchased this Condo in 2016
Why Darick & Heidi Krause chose Kaunakakai
We fell in love with Moloka'i in January 2016 during our first trip to the "friendly isle"...it's the real Hawaii and rich with history! We knew this property and island was right for us when we didn't know what day it was! It truly is our piece of paradise and we want to share it with all of you.
What makes this Condo unique
We love the full-size kitchen, wine cooler, business center (for those that need to plug in for work), comfortable bed & amenities, and tradewind breeze from the lanai throughout the condo.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.
Quiet and relaxing!
I felt like a family member of the owner in this property. The kitchen was well stocked and
Relaxing in Molokai
A lovely, comfortable place to stay. Heidi was a pleasure to work with, providing us with all kinds of information and suggestions of things to do on the island. My daughter and I enjoyed the beautiful ocean view and listening to bird song as we ate our meals on the lanai. It was a delight swimming in the pool and lounging in the club house after a day of sightseeing. We wanted for nothing, as the condo was equipped with everything we could possibly need. We also felt completely safe, as the unit is on the second floor (only drawback, we couldn't find an elevator and had to carry our luggage up the stairs) and we slept with the sliding glass doors open to the lanai, catching the cool ocean breezes.
Kuanakaki, the biggest town on the island is located 13 miles to the west and even though we had to drive a little to eat out, get groceries and gas, and do some sight-seeing, we enjoyed coming back to the peace and quiet of Wavecrest Resort. The scenery on this part of the island is spectacular! In fact, we took a ride further east and found some of the prettiest little beaches ever, along with breathtaking sights! Also, two churches built by Father Damien are located with a couple of miles of the resort. I definitely recommend a stay here. Mahalo Heidi for sharing your lovely home with us!
We loved it!
It was a very nice,comfortable property, we loved the Lanai that looks out over the water, beautiful.
Well maintained complex with resort-like feel way out in the middle of nowhere. Very quiet. Nice unit with probably the best view in the B building. Nice smaller pool with large covered area with WiFi. Mostly adult guests. Only 1 family with children during our stay. Only negative is no air conditioning, but A/C is rare on Molokai. Perfect for someone who wants to really get away from it all.
The Wavecrest Resort in general and the Krauss Condo in particular are places that a person with the right priorities can enjoy.
It is thirteen miles from Kaunakakai so renters have to have realistic expectations.
But then renters also need realistic expectations about Molokai. It is NOT West Maui!
So -- if a prospective renter understands what Molokai means OR are adventuresome and want to find out -- Krauss HoF is a good option.
Now me -- I fell three times during my 'vacation' -- Storm Olivia knocked power out for thirty six hours and flooded the fords -- so my stay was 'adventuresome.'
But it gives me a good story to tell -- which may be the true reason I travel anyway.
obtw -- the possibility of storms is another thing a prospective renter needs to have in their planning list.

The condo is really nice, the mattress on the sofa bed was comfortable memory foam, there were a lot of items for us to use including a snorkel set and food condiments. Very quiet complex, we had the pool to ourselves when we swam. Ocean view from the balcony too!
