Mahalo for showing an interest in Kalawai’s room...We are doing this as a fundraising project and although we list it as a B&B, we offer fruits from our garden and coffee.. Not an official B&B. Each room in our home that we donate out goes to Kalawai, Josie and ALex in the schooling and extra curriculum activities. To use other rooms in the home on a donation basis, we charge by room once Kalawai's room is booked, lowering the price per room as one is taken. If we rent out the whole house and then we go camping or off to events and competitions for Josie and Alex's stand up paddling.
By staying with us, you now become an official sponsor of Kalawai, Josie and Alex since I have set up a company that focuses on entertainment and sports management. By staying with is you automatically become a sponsor and with your donation to the room this is classified as sponsorship and therefore you are automatically our guests as official sponsors.
We are located on the island on Molokai….a short plane ride from Oahu… and a ferry ride from Maui…..
Kalawai is 18 years and is on a special scholarship to pursue her education in England and hence the room being available. She will then be continuing with University studying drama and English and keeping music as her passion. The room comes with the use of the house, the yard, kayak at the harbor, boogie boards, snorkel equipment and discounted activities with your own personal concierge at Molokai Outdoor Activities, the longest running activity and tour company that stays tune with the spirit of Molokai. Molokai Outdoor Activities is owned by Clare and was started in 1999 by Clare on a handful of change.
There is also a car available that is a $35 donation, again part of the sponsor agreement... More pics to follow of the house and yard...... The room has an oversized ceiling fan to keep you cool, a microwave, toaster oven, 2 ring burner, fridge, and wireless internet access. There is also your own bathroom that comes with the room. US phonecalls are complimentary and so are faxes. We hope you will enjoy staying in the room, and there is also access to the yard and garden and the home if you plan to cook at the hale... BBQ area coming soon.....However the main kitchen since it is in the main part of the home has an 8 pm curfew and no cooking until 7am. However Kalawai's room has the gadgets to prepare meals.
The hale is a few minutes from Hotel Molokai heading East and very well located. The yard and garden is an ongoing project about 3/4 acre to bring relaxation and joy for your stay on our beautiful island of Molokai, the birthplace of Kalawai and her sister (Kawailelemakalani) 11 years old, and brother (Kukunaokala) 9 yrs old who are both immersed in the Hawaiian language and culture. Need we say more that we hope to make your stay memorable and pleasurable on our beautiful island of Molokai...
As I have mentioned all the money that we raise from the room and the hale goes towards Kalawai, Kawailele (Josie) and Kukunaokala (Alex). My children are not cheap with Kalawai being educated in England who is planning on a carreer in music and the performing arts. Both Josie and Alex are the water babies of the house who have been competing at International SUP events here in Hawaii since Alex was 9yrs old and Josie 11yrs..They both plan to be competing at a much higher level for 2012 and 2013.
Josie just got accepted into Kamehameha schools which of course will cost money with airfares and other activities and our portion for her tuition. We have been blessed with all of our guests that have come to our home in support of my 3 children and offer them encouragement into fulfilling and attaining their goals. Our home is our home and one that is always in progress but the children have put their hearts into making our home a pleasant experience during your stay on Molokai.
Websites will be coming shortly on all three children and the latest updates on their out of school activities.\
Mahalo for your support and consideration of Kalawai, Kawailele and Kukunaokala.
Finding the property was an adventure by itself, due to absence of Clare, which we knew, we met Clare in Hana. It is close to town, but there are no decent restaurants around, so go for the Pizza place, this is probably the best you can get.
Clare is very friendly and helpful organizing, we got a rental car although we could not get one on the internet.
The place is quiet....
Molokai is amazing and unspoilt, take the Mokulele flight to get there, this is fantastic.
Great time at Clare's, location is perfect! Clare very kindly waited for us at the pier and picked us up on the first night!
When I read up about Kalawai's room and found that our payment was going to Kalawai, Kawailele, and Kukunaokala's education and extra-curricular activities I was more then happy to book there and was glad that I did. Claire and Alex were very hospitable. Kalawai's room is very comfortable and is located in a perfect location for our needs. Her description of the unit is completely accurate and larger then what we had expected. We were also pleased to have been able to use her car (part of her children's sponsorship) during our stay. We will definitely stay there again.
Clare and her children have been very welcoming and supportive. Kalawai's room is attached to the main house but with private bathroom and small kitchen, it gives the guest and the family privacy but at the same time, they have very close if need be. I would definitely recommend to stay at Clare's and help fundraising for her children's projects.
We had a short but very nice stay in Molokai. Wish we would have been able to get on the water with Clare or her kiddos! A lot of ppl raved about that. We explored the island from tip to tip on our second day and absolutely loved it. Wish I would have signed the guest book but I couldn't find a pen anywhere.
The Kalawai´s room was bigger than i expected, it has all the things you can need, and Kalawai, Clare, an Alex were very helpful. I only spend 3 nights, but they make me feel very confortable, and gave me the advice i needed to plan my days.
We enjoyed Molokai so much and I was a plesure to stay in this cude aparment!
Room is very big and has everything you need for your stay. With a little bit more maintenance it would be perfect spot on Moloka'i.
Clare is very engaged in moving people in Moloka'i. Take the chance for booking a tour with her!
Perfect location to explore Molokai.
It was very handy that Clare is running her own business and we could book our tours through her. For ocean and nature loving people.
Clare and her son were very friendly and we had a lot of fun kayaking.
Clare and her son are friendly and hardworking. The description of the unit is completely accurate. Clare kindly set us up with a driver for the short time we were on Molokai as we were under a severe time constraint because of the ferry schedule. She and Hans, the driver, were very knowledgeable about local conditions, thoughtful and considerate.
The bed was really comfortable -- the sheets were new and helped keep us cool overnight.
The bathroom was functional and roomy. We had our own entry/exit door which was nice as we didn't have to go into Clare's private space until she invited us up for a cup of coffee in the morning:) Very Nice...
