Property Details

Updated: Apr 18, 2015
Condo, 1 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 4 Sleeps

The Condo: This spacious, open-air condo is located at Paniolo Hale, the premier condo

complex on Molokai. The architecture is plantation-style, with two white french doors

spanning the length of the main floor. It is two-story, with one bedroom on the upper

floor, and a full bathroom on each floor. The ceilings are high on each level, equipped

with ceiling fans. The condo sleeps 4 and is smoke-free. Enjoy a hammock on the shady

screened-in porch underneath a canopy of large trees. West Molokai is the drier, sunny

side of the island, and the grounds have been beautifully landscaped with lush, tropical

plants. Kepuhi Beach borders the complex.

Molokai: Molokai is only 20 minutes by air from Hawaii's most populous islands, - Oahu

and Maui, and yet has a totally unique, different feel. It has been described as "The island

in Hawaii the world has left behind." It is truly a quiet, peaceful, beautiful,

noncommercialized place. The people are friendly, and you get the sense that you have

experienced "the real Hawaii." It is the perfect place to vacation if you really want to get

away from it all.

This is Molokai as it was intended to be experienced. Explore the beaches, enjoy the wildlife, read by the pool, and close each day with a beautiful sunset. The condo was great and Shell is an exceptional host. We especially liked local fruit smoothies with the blender provided.

Loved being at this condo on Molokai!

  • 5 of 5
My hubby and I stayed at this beautiful condo for 5 days, after a busy 9 days on Maui. It was a wonderful way to end our time in Hawaii. As soon as the plane hit the runway at the airport, I felt 'peace and rest'. And when we arrived at this condo, I felt the same! It is just as described...a wonderful, clean, nicely decorated, peaceful place to be..especially where I came down with an illness during our stay. As we walked the grounds, my hubby and I just felt like we were home, even though we come from New England. This is just a lovely, lovely place to stay. I would recommend it to anyone wanting to go to Molokai, especially those who love quiet and peace, writers, readers, photographers, etc. My sis and her friend came over to visit us and they loved it too, and said the sleep sofa was very comfortable. The ambience of the condo is wonderful, and when you leave, you step out into a beautiful smell of plumeria! The whole complex is tastefully arranged and sort of hidden by tropical trees and plants. Molokai is like stepping back in commercialization at all. So if you're looking for that, go to another island! We did the hike to Halawa Valley, swam in the bay there, took in Purdy's Macadamia Nut Farm, Coffees of Hawaii, and drove to Kalaupapa lookout, bought produce at organic Kumu Farm, and drove around Kaunakakai and other areas of the island, including the beaches on the west shore which is where the condo unit is. Deserted beaches, beautiful big waves, though rough undertoe, and certainly beautiful sunsets. Dixie Maru Beach is the only place we felt safe enough to swim. I found Molokai to be a wonderful photographic opportunity, also. Be forewarned though, that you need to get anything you will need for your stay, all in Kaunakakai, as this is the central point for the whole island, including restaurants. Again, there is no commercialism here, and very few restaurants...nothing at all like the other islands, but so beautiful and peaceful..a pleasant change from other islands. And I can't say enough about the owner of this condo. She was delightfully helpful with everything about the condo and the island! She was a joy to make my plans with! If I ever get to Molokai again, I will be renting her condo again, and will tell others to do the same! Truly the "aloha spirit" is alive and well in the people on Molokai....nothing but friendly. No wonder they call it the 'friendly isle'. :-)

We absolutely loved the island - from the beaches and the Kite Shop at Maunaloa in the west to Halawa in the east, the quaint city of Kaunakakai and its Saturday morning Market Place south central, Kaluapapa NHP at Kalawao, by mule ride, in the north, the monk seals (saw 2), the toads, the turkeys, the birds (no need for an alarm clock) - and your condo unit. What a home away from home! Clean, comfortable, fully equipped. I particularly liked the screened-in lanai - after a shower from having sweated it out in the sun working on a tan, gentle breezes blowing and a good book, and enjoying our meals at the lanai table. Beautiful setting, well kept grounds, close to lovely, (almost) people-free beaches. I think we had a "people jam" on one weekend day ... there were about a dozen people on the beach in addition to us. Chatted with a fella from Maui ... he comes to Moloka'i on business and prefers to stay over a weekend so that he can take advantage of the surf and quiet beaches. Took in part of the Hula Festival and left just before the ukelele workshop.

The plantation shutters sold me when looking for a place to stay on Molokai. When we arrived we were very pleased to find that the condo is truly a home away from home. We didn't want for anything - fully equipped kitchen; two full baths; all the beach equipment (& towels) you could want; washer/dryer; very comfortable queen bed in the master and a comfortable pullout queen sofa bed. No need for a/c - gentle tropical breezes, screened lanai and quiet ceiling fans move the air around.

The golf course between Paniolo Hale and the shoreline has been abandonded but the cart/people/turkey path makes for a nice morning walk with the option to turn off and wander along the beaches, There is only one golf course on the island now - about half an hour away, up past Kualapu'u, an almost hidden left turn just before the Sugar Mill musuem.

Looking for a place to really get away from it all? This is it!

A Fantastic Weekend!

  • 5 of 5
We escaped to Molokai for a quick weekend away from our hectic life on Oahu. We were seeking peace, quiet, unpopulated beaches, and we got exactly what we wanted! This condo suited our needs perfectly.... it's outfitted with everything we needed, and more. The pictures don't actually do it justice.... sitting in the main living area, we felt like we were perched in a beautifully tranquil tree house. Just steps away, we had several beautiful beaches entirely to ourselves.
The owners were a dream to work with in arranging our weekend, and they included several incredibly helpful info lists about the island with our confirmation email, so we were able to get a feel for what we wanted to see and do before we even arrived (I'm a planner!). And, additional info awaited our arrival in a convenient binder in the living room.
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this condo... we will return as soon as our schedule permits!

Love affair with Molokai

  • 5 of 5
It was a “vacation of a lifetime”! I spent the entire month of October, 2012 in Molokai and moved into a ready made home at Paniolo Hale, #T-2. This home away from home had every single amenity that made my vacation the most relaxing time away from home and job ever. The living area is spacious, the furniture cozy and comfortable and the kitchen is well appointed. Everything I needed was at my fingertips. The bathrooms were spacious and the bedroom large and relaxing with a very comfortable queen bed and balcony overlooking blooming plumeria trees. The huge screened in lanai (with fabulous hammock) couldn’t have been nicer. I spent many hours swinging in the hammock, watching and listening to the wild birds including majestic wild turkeys. I could hear the pounding surf from the lanai and bedroom, which was a luxurious sound.

Molokai is a unique island, full of beautiful scenery, full of local residents welcoming you with open arms. If nightlife is your cup of tea, you should go to another island, but if you want an easy pace with daily adventures like swimming, snorkeling, hiking, exploring then Molokai could be your paradise. It was mine.

Not to be missed: Mule Ride to Kalaupapa, Purdy Nut Farm, strolling and shopping through Kaunakakai, Hoolehua and Mauna Loa, “Aloha Fridays” at Molokai Hotel from 4-6 pm, BBQ at the Cook House, lazy drive to far East side of island, LomiLomi massages at Massage & Acupuncture in Kaunakakai, The Big Wind Kite Factory in Mauna Loa, watching the sunset on the beach with a glass of wine – a 2 minute walk from home.

I will be back. Aloha. Su

Get away from it all

  • 5 of 5
From the distant UK, this was our second stay on Molokai and it exceeded even our high expectations.
It is a long way to travel but so worth it. The weather was outstanding, the whale-watching from boat and beach wonderful and such a relaxing island. We loved Kaunakaki and the Saturday market, the friendly people and the wine store! Thank you Shell and Mike.
The Condo was also outstanding - clean, comforable, quiet and everything we needed was on hand.
We have already booked our return trip.
