About Sharon Brown and Albert Clement

I live in Seattle with Albert, raising 5 kids who are launching now, and our Molokai condo has become our 2nd home! They say Molokai chooses you, and she sure did. We like travel, hiking, yoga, snowshoeing, good food, good reading, and just hope to be doing a lot more of all this!

Sharon Brown and Albert Clement purchased this condo in 2016

Why Sharon Brown and Albert Clement chose Maunaloa

They say that Molokai choses you, and she sure did! We visited and spent time with a friend last year and we were done for. We love the quiet and space of Molokai. We love the western exposure and wide open spaces of West Molokai, and we love the rustic and dramatic nature of the shoreline here. Most of all we have enjoyed the people we have met along the way. The fact that the Sheraton resort is returning to nature and the golf course is now a meadow is a plus for us, and hopefully for you too!

What makes this condo unique

The views and sights and sounds from the lanai are such a treat. When can you be so in contact with the wild world of surf meeting land? Wandering the red trails by bike or foot. Wide open spaces, empty highways and beaches. A great place to find out more about yourself.

Notes:
Molokai, the Friendly Island, birthplace to the hula, is said to be the most authentically Hawaiian island. Certainly the most relaxed and undeveloped. It is a remarkable change of pace and we know you will appreciate the difference. Friendly people, incredible outdoor spaces, forests, trails, cliffs, nature preserves, wildlife, and beaches. Organic produce and meats. A terrific place for being active and outdoors, for eating great fresh food, and for being alone, or perhaps being alone with someone!

Break from the crowds..peace and Q-U-I-E-T

  • 3 of 5

My husband and I visited Molokai for the first time and spent a few days at Kephui Beach Resort. Loved the "back in time" feeling of the island - understand why the islanders would like to keep Molokai as is. You travel here ONLY if you want peace, quiet and serenity. It is a beautiful spot of the world.

The Unit: Sharon and Albert have done a lovely renovation of the unit. The wood floors are beautiful. The bathroom modern and clean with a tub/shower combo & toilet in room. The sink vanity is outside the bathroom - well done!!. It is an end unit looking to the ocean and you can hear the waves crash!! It is small and cozy. There is no couch, just a chair next to the dresser/TV stand and two pub style chairs at the island. On the lanai there is a table with chairs as well. The bed is firm, lots of pillows. The kitchen runs along one wall. Cook top NO oven. Microwave - not convection. A common barbeque is just a ways from the unit. This unit did not have screens in some windows or at the sliding door, so we had a few bug visitors. NOTE: the sliding doors have screens in bottom portion, and above the doors in the vault of the wall - these do not close, so on windy cool nights - it gets cool. (also note that you hear your neighbors and they hear you. There is NO a/c. Not really needed as breezes are nice, but when there's humidity, there's humidity!! This is same for all the units I looked at. These are OLD units. Built in the late 70's and not the best workmanship from what we saw. At one time this was part of a huge complex of hotel & apartment style buildings. AT this time 1/2 of the buildings are unused and falling into disrepair. Very sad to see. HOWEVER, the part that is being used as the Kephui Beach Resort (that is a VERY loose term) is kept up, with lovely lawns and gardens. The pool is again, from the 70's. The buildings around the pool are closed up so it feels like you are post apocalypse down there (and around). Not necessarily bad, just be aware....

There are LOTS of trails to walk. The beach is lovely to sit on, watch the waves crash, watch a few surfers, not sure I would venture into it (maybe in the summer months??)

You are a good 25-30 minutes to a store of any kind so make sure you take provisions when going in. There is a small store there (open 9-5 every day) but more expensive than usual (and that's saying something because Molokai is pricey) but it has essentials (and a few non-essentials

Air dropped onto Gillian’s Island

  • 5 of 5

First of all, our room was fantastic, Sharon and Albert have done a wonderful job renovating!

The island was everything and nothing at all like I thought it would be. It’s a really unique place, and in some ways hard to explain. I guess if I had to some it up... a small country town on a tropical island.

We loved our trip, and will be back!

This is the unit to book at Kepuhi Beach Resort!

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this unit is fantastic! Beautiful, simple, clean decor. Completely remodelled and new! Everything you need is provided. The bed and pillows are super comfy. The view is fantastic! You can even see the view while laying in bed! The deck has the perfect high top table and stools to enjoy a cocktail and dinner at while watching the waves. The location is close to the BBQ so close to walk to. Highly recommend this condo!!!!!!

Molokai is rural and wide open to your imagination. You can arrange snorkel, fishing, golf, bird banding, mountain biking and hiking. Beaches are wide open, some are rough, some are great for snorkeling. Visiting Kalaupapa by mule or plane is a profound experience and the selfless story of Father Damien and Sister Marianne's service is moving. There are no chain stores, no stoplights and every experience will be unique and original. Welcome to Molokai!
