Cottage 5A is a great location. Beautiful sunsets, lovely beaches, interesting walks through the red dirt paths, and great breezes. Very nice lanai with comfortable furniture.
The cottage had a fabulous view of the ocean-- nothing in the way. We came for a real rest and the desire to do nothing for a few days-- and it was perfect for that.
That said, much of the resort is in disrepair, some buildings even abandoned. So it's a bit like staying in a ghost town. This unit is good, though: clean and comfortable. We hope it can stay that way!
We vacationed there in the summer and had the most relaxing vacation in all our trips to Hawaii. The cottage was spacious for two (king size bed, spacious kitchen with all necessary supplies, plenty of closet space). The cottage had internet and wifi which provided a choice to stay connected with outside world or stay off the grid. We spent a lot of time on the lanai watching palm trees sway in the wind, watching the beautiful sunsets that disappeared behind Oahu, and just relaxing. We enjoyed sunning at Kepuhi beach and hiked to the other nearby beaches. Since we didn't have a car, we used the local MEO bus (2 trips daily but no weekend trips so plan accordingly) to go shopping at Kaunakakai. We didn't need to contact Gene much during our stay but found him quick to respond to any inquiries. All said we really enjoyed getting away to Molokai. We hope to return again soon.
The pictures do not lie; this cottage has un-obstructed views of the waves crashing against the shore. Beautiful to wake up to with a cup of coffee. Beautiful to sit on the patio with a glass of wine and watch the sunset. The whole time we were there, we didn't see more than 10 people; had the beaches to ourselves - completely!! And the cottage? Was equipped with absolutely every convenience you need. All kitchen equipment, coffee pot and filters, books, music, even a jar of peanut butter left by another renter. Washer/dryer work like a charm, and the water pressure in the shower? I want to go back just for that! GO!! Unwind. We will be back!!
Next to some of the best beaches on the island. Grocery store on property is really convenient. No regrets staying at this rental.
