Most of all this side of island is owned by lg. ranch so gives the feeling of being more safari like with grasses, trees, wild turkeys and abundance of deer and birds.

Due to spiral staircase, small children are not recommended for safety reasons.

KaluaKoi Resort or aka Kepuhi Beach Resort was built at the same time as The Sheraton Resort. Our section of condos were built as condos with full , the other half as hote lrooms with restaurant, conference rooms etc. The Sheraton has been closed for over 15yrs but the grounds, pool, parking etc. are fully maintained and kept up. we have rights to the pool. This gives a very quiet, peaceful complex with endless coves and beaches to explore with few people. In the condo is binder full of all activities, restaurants, and places to visit on Molokai. there is small convenient store on premises that also carries great selection of swim suits etc. but closest lg. grocery store is 5 miles up the hill to Maunaloa.
From the Ho'olehu airport there is alamo car rental service at the airport. Check online for taxi or shuttle service that is available to West End or town. There is a free bus service MEO that covers 75% of island 4 times a day that leaves from airport.
Other Things to Note
Molokai is known as the aloha Island. It is very low key, uncrowded, no stoplights, no malls, no 5 star restaurants. But what you will find is an abundance of friendly people, great local food, organic farms such as Kumu farms, and produce,an amazing selection of California wines at the local Liquor store, solitude and crystal clear waters with abundance of sea life. A true getaway from our busy and hectic lives we live.

Quiet time after 10pm
No pets allowed, HI is very strict about bringing in pets of any kind

Short version: Good stay, nice accommodation, a good option when staying on Molokai.
Detailed version: we stayed on Molokai for 3 nights at this rental home. Rose sent us details of how to find and access the property, which were great and we had no problems finding it. The apartment is large and the lanai was very nice. There is a shop (limited hours) nearby and there's good access to the beach. A nice, quiet place to relax. Thanks for a good stay Rose!
The place is exactly as described- a good size for two people with views of the ocean. The location is kind of a ghost resort, it looks like there used to be plans to have something more happen here but it never did. We loved it. We walked all over the grown over golf course and down to the beach. This place is NO WHERE, so it's perfect of you are looking to unplug like we were but if you want "action" of any kind you should probably be looking for another place and a probably another island. We loved the fact that we could do our own thing and hang out on the lanai. We used the common area gas grill two out of our four nights to grill local meat we bought down the road at the ranch.
David I try to paint that picture very clearly in my description of the property so as not to surprise anyone. What we love about Molokai is exactly what you experienced, exploring, quietness, few rules, great get-away from our normal lives, we hope you come stay with us again
Patrice and Rose
The condo was more than what we expected. It was clean, spacious, and inviting. It had a feel like it was a home away from home. The view of the ocean and sunset was more than could have been expected. We were walking distance from great waves for surfing, skim boarding and walking on the beach. It was a great place to visit. We will be returning.
Location is perfect for anyone wanting to surf (this location was super near the west side surf spot) or just stroll near the waves. It is definitely away from the hustle and bustle of Molokai (which doesn't have much hustle or bustle) so plan on stocking up on necessities before settling in at Kepuhi. Molokai is the PERFECT place to unwind and relax.
One note, the WiFi isn't available on the back lanai (which I hoped it would be) but on the front porch in front of the neighbor's door. This shouldn't be an issue for anyone planning to unplug, but for those needing WiFi for cell phone reception it can be a little inconvenient. Not really a huge burden, but I just wanted to mention it in case it is make/break for anyone.
Two suggestions...bring quarters if you plan to do laundry ($1.75 for each wash or dry load/$3.50 total) and some insect repellent if you are super sweet.
We are looking forward to our next visit and stay at Rose & Patrice's place.
Had a great time. Beautiful place and great views.

Patrice owns the condo that you would like to rent. We have been going to Molokai for over 10 years and honestly have to say we wish we lived there. We love the solitude and peacefulness of Molokai, gives us both a break from our separate busy lives in California.
We have used Airbnb for vacations to Florida and other great places and have always had great accomodations and stays.
We have made sure that everything we feel is important to a comfortable, non cluttered, clean and well stocked condo is available to you. We want you to feel like our condo is yours when you stay there, that would make us happy.
