If you are planning a visit to Molokai, Hawaii, there are plenty of things to see and do on the island, but not so many hotel choices. There is the Hotel Molokai and several condominium rental options.
I stayed two nights at the Wavecrest Resort by way of Molokai Vacation Properties. You’ll need to check the website for each individual rental, as condominiums range from clean and basic to recently remodeled. My one bedroom, #107, located in the “C” building did not offer air conditioning, but the full-size refrigerator kept my bottled water and healthy snacks cold during my stay. As an added bonus, there was a washer and dryer inside the condo, as well as beach towels to use at the beach and swimming pool on site.
As I typically stay in luxury hotels, I forgot to pack shampoo and conditioner on this trip – a gentle reminder that condominium stays are different than hotel stays offering those types of amenities. Fortunately, Molokai has several grocery stores on island with plenty of shampoo, fresh fruit and coffees grown on island – try the Muleskinner dark roast, locally grown and produced on Molokai.
My condominium required a three night minimum stay and rented for $105 per night. Check the website for current rates.
If you are a light sleeper, bring ear plugs. I slept with the windows open in my bedroom and awoke to the sound of crowing roosters at 3:30 in the morning both nights of my stay. Good thing you are beautiful Molokai, as I do like a good nights sleep.
