Five night stay. Travel to Hawaii's 5th largest island and enjoy this amazing getaway. This Airbnb provides majestic oceanfront views and the view of the other Hawaiian Islands. Visitors are delighted by sunsets and white water views, steps from an empty beach and a short drive from the small airport of Molokai. The space is a lofted one bedroom that sleeps four people, with full kitchen, lanai and necessary linens and accessories. It's a short walk (500') to white water, or the pool.
The condo features a lofted bedroom with a queen sized bed and two sleeping couches downstairs. It's about 800 square feet and has 1.5 bathrooms as well as all the necessary kitchen gear.
The Villas are one of the best options for a romantic getaway, for the Molokai-Oahu paddle races, and for families looking for an easy way to hang out for a weekend - or longer.
There are two large, fluffy futons downstairs, perfect for kids or singles, and a queen-sized bed upstairs, and a beautiful lanai that even works for sleeping.
You'll have full run of the condo association, which includes the beach, the pool and various related amenities. Walking over the ridge to the north takes you to the Papahaku State Park, home to one of the biggest beaches in the Hawaiian Islands (look out for Endangered Monk Seals -- and keep 100 feet away if you see them) and walking over the ridge to the south takes you to Paniolo Hale, a beautiful place to spend the day relaxing in the sun (keep in mind that the sun is many times more powerful than it is up north and you could get burned almost instantly in the early afternoon).
You're a short drive from Maunaloa, home to the Kite Shop (eccentric owner Jonathan will keep you entertained with stories for days), and to the road that leads to Hale o Lono, a former sugar port now home to great fishing spots and desolate, tide pool-ridden beaches.
Molokai is the Friendly Isle for a reason - all of the inhabitants (or at least most of them) know one another.
It's a great place for an adventure or two - from SCUBA, deep sea fishing and whale watching with Captain Clay (visit the wharf) to climbing up the mountain in a Jeep to see some of the last remaining native Hawaiian cloud forest.
Mutually convenient dates to be arranged between owner and winner. Flexible arrangement - stay can be arranged for a time in which covid travel restrictions loosen and normalize.
