About the property

About As Close to the Ocean As You Can Get!!!

This one bedroom luxury condo is located on the ground floor of the “A” Building with a covered lanai that sits just a long putt from the ocean with views of at least three of the other Hawaiian Islands (including, Maui and Lanai).

We are told that, at just the right time of morning and the right weather conditions, you can also catch a glimpse of the Big Island.

Although we have never had that pleasure, there is nothing quite like watching the sunrise over Maui while sipping a coffee.

Unless, of course, you are not a morning person; in which case you will have to make due with watching the whales jump (in season), or, simply listening to the tradewinds blowing in the palm trees that are almost close enough to touch from the lanai.

This is our second property on Molokai.

As with our first, we set out to make it one of the nicest condos in the complex (on the island, for that matter).

We purchased this condo in 2014 and completed renovations in early 2015.

Things are pretty laid back in the Islands and even more so on Molokai.

Nothing happens quickly here and that is just one of the reasons why we love it.

The sign that greets you when you are pulling out of the airport (“Slow Down: You On Molokai Now”) is a pretty good indication of what you can expect.

This unit is decorated with an island theme with the furniture having been sourced locally.

Our condo comes complete with very attractive furniture, California King bed, 1000 thread count bedding, plush bath towels and bath robes, 55” HDTV, BOSE Sound Dock, BOSE Wave clock radio and a Dyson bladeless fan just in case the tradewinds do not keep you cool enough.

It truly has too many extras to list!

Free nationwide calling, HD cable, dedicated wireless Internet access are included and Netflix is available.

The keyless entry system will be programmed with your own personal entry code so there will be no need for you to stop by a rental agent’s office to pick up a key after what may have been an exhausting voyage.

You also don’t have to worry about losing the key!

We are confident that you will enjoy our little place in the sun every bit as much as its location.

We like to be pampered and hope that you will feel that way after your visit.

We (including, our on-island representative) will be available throughout your stay and will be very happy to be in contact via telephone and email to ensure that all of your needs are attended to.

If you find the condo to be lacking in any way, we will do our very best to make it right during your stay (recognizing the limitations that can be encountered as a result of being on an “outer island”).

We would like nothing better than to welcome you as our guests for many years to come (and that you will not hesitate to recommend our condo to your friends and family).

About John Scriver

We live approx. 1 hour north of Toronto, Canada and own vacation properties on the island of Molokai, Hawaii and Naples, Florida

John Scriver purchased this apartment in 2014

Why John Scriver chose Molokai

We first visited Molokai in 2005 on our 3rd trip to Hawaii. We wanted a place where we could completely unwind and Molokai certainly fits the bill. It is a far cry from Waikiki Beach; even from Kauai-----but that is just fine by us. The condominium complex has a beautiful, oceanside pool with a covered cabana if you do not like to sit in the sun and some of the most nicely landscaped grounds you are ever likely to find

Does not get better

  • 5 of 5

A beautifully appointed unit, tasteful and uncluttered, everything with quality goods, attention to details and many little 'extras' that made my stay perfect. Owners will do everything to make your stay stress free and totally worthwhile. And yes, Molokai is fantastic. Highly recommended.

Nice being right next to the water. Sat on lanaii and watch the sun rise, see the whales in the distance.

Everything we needed, clean, good location

  • 4 of 5

This condo is well appointed for cooking and relaxing, and in the middle of the island. The owners are very professional, responsive, and provide all the answers to your questions, and tips for the island. The mattress is firm but newer and we both slept well every night. Which brings me to my sole gripe and reason for holding back a star: in the morning and thru out the day there's a lot of noise. This is just the layout of these condos-the bedroom is next to the sidewalk so we could hear every car, flip-flopped passerby, and conversation thru the window slats. It was impossible to nap mid day or sleep in late. I'd stay again but in a 3rd floor unit for more bedroom quiet, and a better view. Otherwise this is a great condo, fluffy towels, beach towels, cookware, lotsa cable tv, everything. Highly recommend....just bring some ear plugs if you're a napper like me. And plan to cook here-I didn't totally love the restaurant scene here so cooking in the condo is the way to go. But do get ice cream from Dave's - oh man is that good stuff! Thanks J & S-we had a wonderful time getting away from the grind!

Very relaxing, high-end furnishings and amenities

  • 5 of 5

Liked the unit very much, well appointed. Had everything I needed. Fans worked great to keep it cool - particularly a very nice Dyson fan. Great part of the island to stay at. Plan to come back! Owner easy to deal with.

Fabulous condo with all the amenities you'll need and only steps from the ocean!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I visited Molokai and stayed at this condo in August, 2016. We like staying in a condo on the ground floor to be able to walk out to the grass and be close to the ocean. The breeze from the ocean was wonderful and the view of Maui and Lanai at night was magic.

There's lots to do on Molokai and we tried out the nine-hole Ironwood Hill Golf Course. John, the owner had a great set of clubs in the unit for our use. This is especially helpful because Molkule airlines has small planes and bringing our own clubs would have been difficult and expensive!

The pool at the complex was lovely and the owners and visitors were very friendly.

We highly recommend this unit and this complex if you're visiting Molokai.

Phenomenal Experience in Molokai

  • 5 of 5

Thank you John and Shelley for your comfy home and all the extra amenities that made our stay so comfortable.

This condo was everything promised and more. The property was well maintained and very clean. The owners were very attentive but not intrusive. The groundskeepers and security were friendly and pleasant. The Friday night jam session with the locals at the Molokai Hotel is a must. The entertainment as well as the fresh fish dinner was unbelievably delish! Terri at the local store in town was very welcoming and added a great experience to our trip with her knowledge of the island, the spirituality as well as her suggestions of where to go and what to see. The sugar mill museum was very educational about the facility as well as the lepers and history. Unfortunately our tour to the colony got cancelled Friday night for Saturdays tour, the colony shuts down on Sundays and we were leaving the next day, which made it impossible to reschedule... This was a major bummer; but we will be back to take that tour. It was exciting to see so much wild life. It was also very informative to see how the natives live with simplicity and very little. We loved it so much, that we are considering purchasing property for retirement.

Although we didn't get to use the golf clubs, we promise to next time.

Until next time.... God Bless and take care Theresa B
