Excellent choice! Affordable, beach front, very clean and sleeping to the waves and waking up to the ocean at sunrise ......amazing! Leslie and Kip checked in to see how things were going, we had everything we needed and the people of Molokai were so friendly.....no commercial, very spiritual .....Maui looks good across the channel!!

My husband, son and I spent 4 days in Molokai staying at one of the Dunbar cottages right on the water! I wish we had had more time! The cottage was spotless, had all the amenities, and was especially comfortable. What a delight to sleep listening to the waves. We grilled fish we caught, and picked up veggies from KOMU...

I just looked at my husband's review from 2008 - our first trip to Molokai and our first stay at the Dunbar's cottage. Our kids were 2 and 4 back then, and now are official tweens. I've spent time this week watching videos from that first trip and wondering how everything has stayed the same except my girls. (Well, and...

We stayed four nights, including our 25th wedding anniversary. We loved this little cottage which was so clean and tidy with everything we needed. The balcony had the best views and we could even see whales in the distance. We were looking for seclusion and we found it with our own private beach. However if you want to swim I...

We have been on four islands now, first Oahu, found it very busy. 2nd, Maui, nice but still busy, 3rd the Big Island (Kona), a little better but still busy. Molokai, very peaceful and quiet. The island I would go back too. We had rented out a cottage 18 miles out of town and it was worth it. The Dunbar...

I needed to escape the hustle and bustle of NYC and decided to spend a few days on Molokai. The Dunbar cottages were just what I needed. An awesome property far enough away from everyone (and every thing). From the cool breezes coming off the water, the pristine views from the Lanai and even a whale or two breaching in...

We stayed at Pauwalu cottage, furthest to the east. What a gem! We came for our tenth anniversary, and found this the perfect place for four nights of peace, moonlght and walks on the beach.

We stayed at the Pu'unana Beachfront Cottage, which is a little more elevated then the Pauwalu house that's beach level. What a view from the deck, Maui right in front of you across the channel, and Lanai just to the right. We had to pinch ourselves to make sure it was real. Peace and solitude are the key words there....

Don't tell anyone about this place! It's a little piece of heaven on earth! The pictures don't do the place justice. It's very clean and pleasant inside with a small garden area outside and then take 3 more steps and you are on a secluded super safe (shallow and protected) beach. Watch whales from the balcony porch or try snorkelling...
