The beach is 30 steps across the lawn with the reef just beyond. We woke to have coffee on the lanai and watched for whale spout. If we did not eat in town, we grilled and watch the sunset across the straight on hills of Maui. And then waited for the moon to rise and the stars to come out. The kitchen had all we needed and more. The house is well equipped for children or could host 3 couples with ample space.
We were a few miles from the Halawa Valley and other "east shore beaches". The drive back to town and wharf where we took several whale watching trips (Molokai Ocean Tours) was easy.
I'm not sure I want to review this absolutely fabulous vacation rental home. I want to be selfish and keep it to myself.
It is the most perfect location. On the beach, only a few houses around. It was like it was our own personal private space. SO relaxing! No nightclub or traffic noise. Just the happy sounds of few folks playing and fishing in the water. The beach area is sandy and shallow for a long ways out. Perfect for the kiddos. There's a reef. Perfect for snorkeling and fishing. And the quiet! Did I already mention how peaceful and relaxing it was to sit on the lanai and watch the sunrise and ocean waves? We can't wait to go back!
Molokai Beach Bungalow is absolutely fabulous! Great location and right on the water. There was nothing better than sitting on the lanai watching the whales breach, snorkeling in the ocean literally behind the house, lounging on the beach steps from the back door or exploring the beautiful island. We were a large group of 6 and there was enough private space for everyone as well as plenty of shared space for us to hang out. The kitchen has everything you need and having the washer and dryer made things easier. Truly, everything we needed was provided. There is a great book of things to do and places to visit that was helpful in planning our time on Molokai. Theresa was really easy to work with and very responsive. We loved it here and only wish we could have stayed longer - much longer.
Just note - Molokai isn't Maui so if you are looking for bright lights, infinite restaurants and a nightclub - this isn't the island for you. But, if you are looking to relax, unplug, hike, swim and enjoy the beauty of this special island, Molokai is great and the Molokai Beach Bungalow is the perfect place to stay!
We stayed here for a week in July and can't wait to return! It is everything you would want on mystical, magical, Molokai. Whether you want to relax by the ocean or hike to a waterfall, the location is perfect. The house layout is great so we never felt crowded. Everyone came back saying this was their favorite vacation if all time!
