The only town on the west side of Molokai, Maunaloa is a former plantation village and has been rebuilt around a master plan based on preserving the rural village environment. There are restaurants and shopping available here as well as peace and quiet.

This small village occupies an elevated position about 1 mile/1.5km from the western end of road 460. Founded in the 1920s by the Dole Company for its pineapple plantation workers, Maunaloa died 50 years later when pineapple growing was abandoned owing to field irrigation problems. For a decade it became a ghost town. Only then did a few artists settle here and they have brought the place to life again as a center of craft-work. Although new buildings have been erected, some houses remain today as examples of Maunaloa's past as a typical plantation settlement.

This charming little village is set in the hills on the West End of Molokai. There are nice beaches at this end of the island. Also, be sure to visit the famous Big Wind Kite Factory and see their amazing selection of quality kites and colorful windsocks. You can go on a tour of the factory or take a free kite-flying lesson with the friendly owner. Many of their kites are handmade right in Molokai.

Fly your kite at your vacation rental on the island of Molokai! Accommodation options are vacation rentals, lodging in condo rentals, apartment rentals or home rentals.

    This is our tropical retreat on the west coast of Molokai. It is on the second floor and and has an amazing view of Papohaku Beach and is a few minutes walk to 3 other beautiful beaches. The unit is exactly as pictured & we continually update photos as we add and update things. Since we are one of the few owners who actually live here we manage, clean and maintain the unit ourselves and are in our unit before and after every guest to make sure everything is clean and in good working order. We are also available to answer any question you may have about Molokai, our unit, current weather conditions, best places to go, how to get here (best inter island airlines)... We want our guests to feel like they are coming to a cherished family retreat, so we have tried to provide everything you might need. You pretty much just need to bring clothes and buy some food. For your convenience we have provided beach chairs, beach towels, beach umbrella, a small cooler, small beverage cooler, snorkel gear, fishing poles (upon request), tennis rackets, bikes, a spotting scope for whale watching as well as a fully stocked kitchen, including starter coffee, tea, spices, olive oil & vinegar, etc. We also have a Kayak and a paddle-board at our house that guests are welcome to use (We live right on the water just east of town). We also know that rental cars are very expensive and sometimes hard to acquire on Molokai, which is why we offer one with the unit at a reasonable rate. If you rent it, it will be at the airport when you arrive. Mahalo for considering us for your next getaway and we hope to see you soon.
