I am not sure why we do not get very many booking from this site as we are listed on the other 2 major vacation sites and we get a lot of booking and have a ton of great reviews. If you try to contact us and we do not respond, please contact support to see if there is an issue as we always respond within a few hours. Now about our condo. Hale Kamaluhia 'House of Serenity' is our tropical retreat on the west coast of Molokai. It is on the second floor and and has an amazing view of Papohaku Beach. The unit is exactly as pictured & we continually update photos as we add and update things. Since we are one of the few owners who actually live here we are in our unit before and after every guest to make sure everything is clean and in good working order, that is not the case with most vacation ...I am not sure why we do not get very many booking from this site as we are listed on the other 2 major vacation sites and we get a lot of booking and have a ton of great reviews.

Since we are one of the few owners who actually live here we are in our unit before and after every guest to make sure everything is clean and in good working order, that is not the case with most vacation rentals on Molokai. We are also available to answer any question you may have about Molokai, our unit, current weather conditions, best places to go, how to get here (best inter island airlines)... We want our guests to feel like they are coming to a cherished family retreat, so we have tried to provide everything you might need. You pretty much just need to bring clothes and buy some food. For your convenience we have provided beach chairs, beach towels, beach umbrella, a small cooler, small beverage cooler, snorkel gear, tennis rackets, binoculars for whale watching as well as a fully stocked kitchen, including starter coffee, tea, spices, olive oil & vinegar, etc. We also have 2 Kayaks and a paddleboard at our house that guests are welcome to use (We live right on the water just east of town). We also know that rental cars are very expensive and sometimes hard to acquire on Molokai, which is why we offer one with the unit at a reasonable rate. We handle the vehicle rental through TURO as they validate drivers licenses and provide insurance. Our prices are at lease 1/3 - 1/2 of Alamo rates (The only rental agency at the airport). We do not have a permit to do business on airport property, so you must take a taxi to our house to pick the vehicle up. If you are booking for 5 days or more, we will do an airport delivery, but we will have to meet you at the entrance to the airport (a short 50 yrd walk). We have a 5 day minimum because delivering to the airport is very time consuming and disruptive to our daily routine (it takes 2 people, 2 vehicles and 2 man hours for each drop off and pick up - if flights are on time)..The prices are $50 a day for the car and $59 a day for the CRV with a 10% discount for stay of 1 week or more. If you choose to not rent our vehicle, please book one as soon as possible (vehicle can become very hard to get if you wait to long). The 3 rental agencies are Alamo (located at the airport), Mobettah Cars or Molokai Car Rental (just do a google search). You can also look on Turo. Mahalo for considering Hale Kamaluhia for your next getaway and we hope to see you soon. Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: W60619681-01More

We had an awesome stay on Molokai! Yvette and Mike were available for questions but we had friends we were visiting. Everything was clean and organized which made travel with a 4 month old so much easier! We look forward to coming back! Mahalo!More

About the neighbourhood
The condo is located on the west side of Molokai in the old Sheraton Resort approximately 14 miles from the airport. It is extremely peaceful and serene. Although Ke Nani Kai (Our resort) is extremely well groomed and beautiful, it is located adjacent to the abandoned Sheraton resort. We have a well maintained pool, hot tub and tennis courts. There is a stark contrast between the two facilities found here. At Kepuhi Beach Resort (The old Sheraton), it is like walking back in time or through a ghost town. Everything is just like it was in 2007 when they closed it down, just abandoned. Ke Nani Kai (Our Resort) is very well manicured and the grounds crew does a fantastic job ensuring everything looks nice and well kept.
Getting around
Although Molokai is a fairly small island (35 mi by 10 mi), a rental car is a must. The only shopping is in town 20 miles from the unit and the MEO (free shuttle) only runs M-F (excluding holidays) on a 2 hour loop. It is for locals, but if there is room, visitors can ride it.
