There's nothing else like it! Some will say it's 'awesome', others have called it 'amazing', the Hawaiians would say 'No Ka Oi' (the best). Hale No Ka Oi is simply the best home away from home you will find in Molokai and perhaps anywhere in the Hawaiian Islands. This is a top floor suite with stunning views over the ocean to the island of Lanai. This is a heavenly, restful retreat for the mind and body. The ideal central location of this condo is convenient, allowing you to avoid those long 45 minute trips to the east or west ends of the island. Just a short drive from the airport and only minutes into town. The perfect central location on Molokai if you want to enjoy the white sand beaches of the west end or the lush, rugged east end.

Just a short drive from the airport and only minutes into town. The perfect central location on Molokai if you want to enjoy the white sand beaches of the west end or the lush, rugged east end. An oasis of luxury awaits you with the blending of rich cherry and gleaming marble floors. The bathroom is almost sinful with its oversized, dual head, marble and glass shower and double sinks. The cherry kitchen is exquisite with granite counter tops and premium stainless steel appliances and equipped to please even the most discriminating chef. Everything inside is of the finest quality available, including the finest linens, house wares, electronics and European leather furnishings. This is not one of those condos that still sports 20+ year-old rattan furniture. In the living room is a new 50' curved Ultra HD TV. Watch cable tv by Spectrum, or stream your favorite shows. There is also a 40' HD TV in the upstairs bedroom. We also have an audio system with am / fm, CD and iPod dock. This is the 'Ultimate In Accommodations'. The Master bedroom features a Cal King bed with direct access to the bath. The large loft bedroom features a Queen bed, leather loveseat and absolute privacy. The custom engineered, stainless steel, spiral staircase is a work of art by a German craftsman, Josef Linzen. Whether you are two, three or four, you will love this place. The perfect location for your honeymoon, anniversary or for any other excuse you can find! The property is impeccably maintained and there is a large oceanfront pool. There are BBQ grills for your fresh fish or your favorite steak. Activities abound on Molokai. This truly is nature’s playground. Kayak miles of pristine reefs, take a guided hike into the tropical beauty of the Halawa valley with its magnificent waterfall or take a journey down to historic Kalaupapa. You can ride horseback through the fields at Molokai Ranch or along miles of nearly deserted white sand beaches. This is the Hawaii of yesterday, a refreshing step back in time. Best of all, you will meet the people of Molokai and come to understand why it’s called 'The Friendly Isle'. Walk into town on a Saturday and see the vendors with their sidewalk displays of crafts, art, fruits and vegetables. The weather is perfect. The days are sublime and your mind will relax on island time!More

The condo is a perfect place to stay while in Molokai. Being only a mile from the main shops makes it very convenient and easy to grab something if needed. The condo was very clean and organized. Hope to be back to Molokai sometime soon.

We stayed for three nights at The Ultimate Oceanfront Penthouse in Molokai. The ocean front view from our balcony was magnificent. We enjoyed our two bedroom condo. The pool was very relaxing. Our only wish was that we could of snorkeled from the beach. Molokai’s reef is off shore and water visibility from the beach is cloudy. We tried to hire a boat tour, but snorkeling tours were only available if you were staying at Four Seasons Resorts. We had fun exploring Molokai, it is a beautiful island.

We had a wonderful time in Molokai and enjoyed our stay in Molokai Shores #330. The worst part about it was that we could only stay for 7 nights. If you are looking for a place to get away from the crowds and REALLY relax, this is the place. The décor is awesome and you find that most of the amenities that you will need, are included. The gorgeous view off the balcony never got old. One review mentioned that there really wasn’t much of a beach, but there is plenty of beach to stroll down with your morning cup of coffee and ease into your day. The central location meant easy access to everything on the island. The main town of Kuanakakai is only minutes away. There you will find places like the ‘Friendly Food Market’ for groceries, several restaurants including Molokai Burger, Paddler’s Inn and Dave’s Ice Cream. If you want to go snorkeling, scuba diving or fishing, the friendly folks at Molokai Fish & Dive can help you make those arrangements. I highly recommend visiting Phillip at Molokai Bicycle, and renting a bike or two, and spend some time taking a slow ride around Molokai (he’s also a very good source of local information) We did the late night fresh bread pick up in the alley behind Kanemitsu's Bakery, which was interesting. On Friday night, make the short drive to Hotel Molakai and take in the sweet sounds of the island elders strumming their yukeles and signing traditional Hawaiin songs. On Saturdays there is an open market where you can buy jewelry, souvenirs, baked goods and produce. You can also drive out near the airport and visit Kumu Farms for fresh, organic produce. Then travel a short distance to get island-grown coffee at Molokai Coffee. On Sunday, visit your favorite beach and relax, because Molokai is closed on Sundays. For activities, we attempted to visit all of the beaches, hiked to the Kalaupapa overlook and visited the phallic rock. Swam at Murphy’s and Dixie Maru beaches and took a stroll down Papohaku beach (2.8 miles long) We snorkeled outside the barrier reef and saw numerous fish, sea turtles and dolphins with Captain Tim and First Mate Gabe from Molokai Fish & Dive. We hiked to the falls in Halawa Valley and took an invigorating swim in the pool beneath the falls. Most evenings ended with us cooking a home cooked meal in the well-equipped kitchen. Then dining with a glass of wine, or a cold beer, while watching a glorious sunset from the balcony of Chad’s wonderful condominium. We will definitely be back….the sooner the better. Like the sign at the airport says “Aloha, Slow Down, This is Molokai” Thanks Chad

This place is redone, top to bottom, and it is as lovely as the pictures show. I have not always had that experience with vacation rentals. Nicely appointed with just about everything you would need with the exception of a box of tissues and shower soap. Super clean. As others have said, Chad was easy to work with and everything was emailed to me promptly (also not the always the norm). We spent most of our time on the beautiful lanai overlooking the ocean. It is within minutes of town (i.e. restaurants) and also about one minute from the Hotel Molokai, which also serves appetizers and has a waterfront bar. Very convenient. That being said, there are a few things to be aware of. First off, it is hot. No accommodation in Molokai has A/C so this is an issue no matter where you stay. There are overhead fans and free standing fans as well, but even so the unit was broiling during the day. Because you must leave doors and windows open to the breeze, you will hear the neighbors and their annoying television set, which was on practically all the time. We had some initial issues getting things like lights and overhead fans to turn on. Be sure to read the "owner's manual" located under the coffee table. This helped us figure out how to turn most everything on, although we never could get the master bedroom bedside lights to work. Overall we liked the unit and the location, and would recommend it.

I rented this condo at the last minute to go to a family reunion on Molokai. The manager was very responsive and sent the contract immediately. I was delighted when I arrived - it was immaculate, completely upgraded, had a fantastic ocean view, and new bedding and towels. The complex is very nice with a large, well maintained pool. It was priced less than the nearby, old hotel was charging for a garden view - so it was a great value! Highly recommended!

This was a great place to stay. The condo is very well equipped with a great location. The only negative thing was the loft bedroom was pretty hot. There are fans, but no windows up there, so you don"t get good airflow like the downstairs bedroom. We liked staying close to town. We enjoyed eating at the small restaurants that served ethnic foods; we recommend being adventurous when ordering!' Molokai is a very quiet island, no crowds anywhere. Nice!

Molokai Shores is located close to the only real town on the island - super convenient. Chad's condo is exactly as advertised, a good value - clean, well laid out, GREAT view, easy to work with... very responsive to our inquiries... it is useful to know that the beaches on this part of the island are really non-existent, so if looking for a location on/near the best beaches pick the East or West end of Molokai, thus giving up the convenience of being within easy walking distance of town... appreciated that the condo included boogie boards, snorkel gear, chairs, etc... the island, however, is the real treat - NO stoplights on the entire island says it all, the only place that is truly "old school" Hawaiian. What people say about how friendly the locals are is also spot on, we detected no "bad vibes" re: being haole - everywhere we went the locals were incredibly open, friendly and warm. Would go back in a heart beat!

We had the pleasure to stay in Chad’s condo at Molokai Shores unit #330 for twelve days this month (Jan. 2013) for our 25th wedding anniversary. Chad was very easy to work with during the whole process. He answered immediately any questions I had before our stay. Instructions were sent prior to our arrival as to checking in and he had plenty of information in the condo about the complex and things to do in Molokai. The condo was very clean and decorated immaculately with high end furniture. There is a king size bed downstairs and a queen size bed in the loft bedroom. We chose to sleep upstairs in the loft bedroom because to us, it was quieter. The bed was very comfortable. The kitchen had all the necessary pots & pans, dishes, etc. needed to cook if you choose to do so. There were beach towels, beach chairs and a cooler which was nice to have when going to the beaches. The view was absolutely beautiful. Waking up to seeing the ocean right outside was wonderful. We saw whales out front (you will need binoculars, which we brought), the ferry coming and going to Maui and cargo ships. We went fishing with Hallelujah Hoe Fishing and caught some beautiful fish that we cooked that evening. Captain Clay knows his “stuff”. We caught all the fish we needed within two hours and started whale watching. We got in a pod of whales (5) that we followed for about an hour. That was a real treat. We also did everything else that you will read about to do with the exception of the mule ride. We just decided to pass on it because of the switchbacks on the trail and the height. All in all, we loved Molokai, Chad’s condominium and the people of Molokai. We want to return in the future and hope to stay in the beautiful condo again. Thank you Chad!!

If you've set your heart on Molokai and prefer a condo rather than the limited hotel options, this is clearly a superb option for your stay. The location is central to the island and the amenities are top-notch. Our trip to Molokai was a surprise visit for my wife's birthday, and the was in awe of this condo, the decor and the grounds of Molokai Shores. After each days exploration of Molokai (remote beaches, jeep trails, Kalaupapa mule ride and Aloha Fridays at Hula Shores) we looked forward to the evenings to retire to this luxurious condo. There were no issues with the rental process or the condo during our stay and the owner/agent was very personable and a pleasure to deal with.

As I sit here, my wife is saying that I could go on for days talking about Hale No Ka Oi. She's right. If you ever have the chance to rent this unit, do yourself a favor and DO IT! Molokai Shores Unit 330 is amazing. The decor, the design, the "amentities" are without compare. The view from the lanai is that of the pool and some of the most beautiful sunsets that I have ever seen. The location is very convenient to town...the Friendly Food Market is just that, friendly and Kanemitsu's Bakery, simply put, has the best French bread that I've ever eaten. Try this out for dinner one night...we drove west to the Kumu Farm. Bought fresh salad greens, green beans, papaya and Molokai grass fed porterhouse steaks. On the way back, stopped at the Friendly Market for a bottle of red wine. Grabbed a loaf of French bread at Kanemitsu's and then a quick stop at Dave's Ice Cream for some take out pints. Grills are available at Molokai Shores for your use. Watching the sunset while enjoying this meal was just one of many memorable moments that we shared thanks to Chad and this wonderful condo. We will be back and we will make every attempt to rent this unit on future visits to Molokai.

About the neighbourhood
Less than a mile from town, and directly on the ocean front, this condo has one of the best views on the island. The edge of the shore is literally less than 50 feet in front of the lanai. The sunsets over the ocean can be just stunning. The is also the most central location on the island, so if you wish to venture out to the east or west ends of the island, you are already at least half way to where you're going.
