“Second Time Around”
Reviewed 5 February 2015 for a stay in January 2015

When we went to Moloka'i three years ago, it was our first time, and we stayed only five days. Therefore, we hustled around the island to see as much as we could, and we ate almost all meals at restaurants.

This time we stayed a week, and we didn't go sight-seeing as much. Instead, we took it easy and stayed close to home. "Home" was this lovely, comfortable, splendidly furnished condo. We swam every day at the Wavecrest pool, and we ate every breakfast, most lunches, and half our dinners at "home." By not going out all the time, we saved money, time, and energy.

To tell the truth, the restaurants on Molokai are OK but not superb--you don't go there for the food. It's better to buy fruits and vegetables at Kumu Farm, and other groceries at Friendly Market and Misaki's. Then you cook your fish or steak on the gas grill by the pool and eat in the cabana there or in your condo.

You should also spend time on the lanai, using the binoculars and telescope that Chaya the landlady provides or perhaps just using your eyes. In the day you can look for fish jumping out of the water or, farther away, perhaps a whale. At night you can look up at the stars or left to the ribbon of lights of Maui or right to the perfect darkness of Lana'i. Best of all, you can look at nothing at all.

If you get lucky, Chaya might invite you for dinner at the house she shares with her husband, Tom. From that location up on the mountain side, you'll have a spectacular view of the island, the ocean, and the islands nearby. You also may get the most elegant meal you'll have on Moloka'i.

If this is your first time here, you'll probably want to see places like the beaches and, if you're adventurous enough to ride a mule along a cliff-side, the former leper colony. If you've already seen all that or do not care to do so, you may want to visit places where you can learn about Hawaiian civilization, like the museum, the macadamia farm, the coffee plantation, or the plumeria farm. You might even do like we did and hire somebody to give you lessons in the Hawaiian language.

We happened to be here for Makahiki, the ancient annual festival celebrating the end of the season of war and the arrival of the season of planting and peace. If you visit on the right weekend in January, you should not miss this: the ceremonies and the games. Where else will you see children playing 'ulu maika?

This condo unit is named Ka Hale Ola, which means "The House of Life." The name is apt.

We stayed here for four days, and were very happy with it. And we are picky! Comfy bed and well-appointed bathroom. Nice pool in the complex, and an oceanfront grill that you can use.

“A Paradisical Escape - The Real Hawaii”
Reviewed 14 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

people found this review helpful

This was our first stay at Ka Hale Ola A304 and our first time on the island of Molokai, and I must say I was thrilled with everything about our 7 days in the sun. The condo is very well equipped with practically everything you might need during your stay. Snorkelling gear, laptop and printer, dishwasher and even spare toiletries and condiments so you needn't lug bottles of shampoo from home, or buy to much from the store en route. the view from the lanai will make you want to decamp permanently, sell your home and live forever on the paradise that is little Molokai. We spent our days exploring the island - head to papohaku beach it's beautiful - relaxing by the pool and scuba diving. A big thank you to chaya for making our stay so effortless. I hope one day we'll be back. Highly recommended!!

“Can't imagine a better choice for a stay in Molokai”
Reviewed 24 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014
1
person found this review helpful

My husband and I enjoyed everything about our recent first-time visit to Molokai and our stay in this condo. As other reviewers have noted, it is astonishingly well supplied, including a great kitchen and all imaginable household and recreational amenities! Very well located to visit both ends of the island and a great place to come back to in the evening - relaxing over a homemade dinner on the lanai is pretty special. We were fortunate to be able to meet our hosts, Chaya and Tom, who clearly have put a lot of thought and energy into the condo; they could not have been more gracious, informative, and welcoming. Molokai itself truly is a special and different place and well worth getting to know and explore
