Tucked into a verdant garden on the dry West End, this condo complex has the advantage of being next door to a white-sand beach. The two-story, old Hawaii ranch-house design is airy and homey, with oak floors and folding-glass doors that open to huge screened verandas. All units are spacious and well equipped. The whole place overlooks the Kaluakoi Golf Course (which closed in 2008), a green barrier that separates these condos from the rest of the rapidly fading Kaluakoi Resort. Out front, Kepuhi Beach is a scenic place for walkers and beachcombers, but the seas are too hazardous for most swimmers. A pool, paddle tennis, and barbecue facilities are on the property, which adjoins open grassland countryside.
As with most condominiums in a rental pool, the quality and upkeep of the individually owned units can vary widely. When booking, spend some time talking with the friendly people at Molokai Vacation Rental so that you get a top-quality condo that has been renovated recently.
