I had wanted to visit Molokai for YEARS. This is a must do while visiting the island. Bring in your own dry coconuts or help yourself to their's. I preferred to decorate my coconut at home in detail and brought it here to be mailed. Or, use the many markers there to use. Either way, it's neat! I weighed my... More

Was skeptical but it is a unique experience. The kids decorated a coconut for themselves. The Coconut is free but just have to pay postage. It a small post office out in the countryside and only takes a few minutes to do.

The post master was very helpful and couldn't have been nicer. We decorated our own coconuts and was also given directions to go see Aunt Teri so we could purchase beautifully decorated coconuts. She personalized them with whatever you want and takes them to the post office to mail them. We will have a keepsake forever from our time there.

The post office provides coconuts and markers; you pay postage. Fun for kids. Just make sure they've thought of their design before they start drawing on the coconut. Maybe bring some paper and pencils so they can sketch it out.

The postmaster at the Hoolehua Post Office could not make this an easier or more fun activity. Bins filled with coconuts and coloring pens/markers await you. While I had a great time designing a coconut to send my parents, I equally enjoyed meeting the postmaster who shares in the fun, a very thoughtful and kind man. My parents enjoyed receiving... More

At first, we were a little disappointed we couldn't take the easy way and just buy one of the beautifully decorated coconuts to post home. However, after a little encouragement from the very kind and friendly post office staff, my husband and I got to work on our own coconut postcard while waiting for the rain to clear up. I... More

We loved this! We sent one to each of our loved ones. The kids loved it! We got pictures of them holding them. They provide you with dehydrated coconuts and magic markers. You can take them to decorate and bring back if you want to be more elaborate. There are 3 sides to a nut, one is for the address,... More

This is a fun little memento to send yourself while you are on vacation. It takes no time at all and the staff is really nice. You can take the coconut to you room to design it and bring it back later to mail.

Molokai is known as the "friendly isle". The people at the little post office in Hoolehua make that statement completely true. Incredibly friendly, willing to help whether it be stamps or Post A Nut. I did wish I had a more artist bent after seeing some of the examples of the coconuts that had been decorated for posting. But, they... More
