About this listing
Bottom line every one that comes to stay are part of my children's life with their future endeavors. Our home is central on island, a few minutes walk to Hotel Molokai. We are a home and we do the best we can to make you feel comfortable!
Mahalo for showing an interest in Kalawai’s room...I (Clare) have set up Kalawai's Hale as an S-Corp where I focus on marketing, management and sponsorship and my children are the ones that receive the help through this corporation. My children are talented with dreams and goals and since I am a single mum and working 3 jobs, I decided to throw in the marketing and management in as a 4th job since that is my specialty from many years ago. My children are not cheap and their extra activities, schooling, equipment costs a lot of money. So I fundraise for them and they earn it by welcoming you into our home and making our home into their corporate headquarters fro their dreams. We have a website and the kids will be adding some of their work on there in the coming months. So PLEASE know that we are by no means a vacation rental or a bed and breakfast and only using AirBnB as a tool to fundraise and for the kids to explore their dreams by meeting and interacting with our guests if they choose to do so.
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.
By staying with us, you now become an official sponsor of Kalawai, Josie and Alex since I have set up the company to focuses on entertainment and sports management. By staying with us, 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 21 years and is at University in London, England called Goldsmiths which is part of University of London, hence the room being available. She is studying drama 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.
Sometimes there is 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 career in music and the performing arts.
Kaela (Kalawai) is currently studying drama and English at Goldsmiths University while busking on the side around London. 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..Alex has since been the one to be dreaming of the ocean and plans to go full time in the coming years. For 2015 at 13 yrs old he crossed the channel from Molokai to Oahu twice and Maui to Molokai once. He has a full schedule so all monies raised through our home will help him compete..
Josie is figuring out what she wants to do and is drawn to drama like her sister, but also has a passion with art. Her hopes is that she can do some drama courses on any of the other islands and or mainland. She is also a very talented writer and that is something that she wants to explore.
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.
We are in on Molokai so thought we should mention that like Kauai we have the jungle fowl (chickens) running around the island and so instead of traffic we get to hear roosters crow in the morning..For many it is not a problem. Perfect alarm clock to get up and enjoy the day!!
Our neighbors are awesome all around us.. Some have dogs but they are good and keep in their own yards..We have cats....
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.
Wi FI and to be part of our home.The user name is houseguest so if we are not home you can log in instantly to Mawae's guest network or Clare Mawae's guest network. We have a huge yard, so plenty of quiet spots for your enjoyment. We are in the process of setting up little privacy spots in the yard so you can relax when not out exploring the island.
Interaction with Guests
We love to interact with our guests when we are home..We have had many evenings where we cook together. We enjoy meeting people from different parts of the world. Besides with you as a guest then my children do not have the opportunities for their future. Every guest plays an important role in contributing to their future endeavors as a sponsor through CSM.
Our neighbors are awesome and we are lucky to be living where we do.. We do have many chickens so be prepared for the rooster that crows. Chickens are every where on the island and hard to not escape the crow of the rooster where ever you are...Sure beats the business of the city! Our neighbors also have dogs but they all stay in their own yards. I know some people have a fear of dogs but they do not come into our yard...So you are good there....Hey the cats will protect you!!
There is a public bus service called MEO . The schedule is online so please look at it if you are not renting a car. (website hidden)
The bus service is limited but the bus will stop infant of our home, down below by the road.
Other Things to Note
We do recommend in getting a car as it can be hard to get to where you want to go with out relying on schedules and other people that can perhaps give you rides.
give us a call but we are fundraising with this room and one more opening up in August/September......we have cats but they are really your best friends when you live in the tropics..
Kitchen closes at 9pm and opens up at 6.30am
