We are just finishing our three week stay in F2 and enjoyed every minute of it. The unit is well equipped and comfy. Beautiful views all day-especially sunset right from the lanai. Very friendly folks on this island who were welcoming and helpful. We've been to Maui on two trips before and had a great time, but Molokia is the... More

We stayed here for 4 days at the beginning of January in room O-2. The property is beautiful- surrounded by awesome flowers and plants. The ocean is just steps away with nice, quiet beaches all around. It was very quiet and we hardly saw anyone around. Our room was nice, the kitchen stuff didn't seem to be used recently as... More

Spent one month in a Paniolo Hale unit rented from a private individual. This was our third trip to Molokai over several decades and our best ever. Molokai remains untouched by the glitz and crowds of much of Hawaii. Paniolo Hale is a collection of individually owned condos that range from studio to two-bedroom. Each unit reflects the personality of... More

My friends and I booked at Paniolo Hale for a 2 nights stay on Molokai. The property is located on the western side of the island, with a quiet and relaxing atmosphere. On the ground floor you have an open kitchen on the large living room with table, a bathroom and there is as well a terrace which you can... More

We just stayed in C3 over Mothers Day weekend and were terribly disappointed. Couldn't use pool because of bees and unit had gecko messes. Need advise, suggest using a property management firm. Wish I had gone with Ke Nani Kai as Molokai Vacation Rental sugested.

First - if you're visiting Molokai for anything other than a quiet, peaceful escape or fantastic hiking/scuba/snorkelling - don't go. This island is beautiful, half tropical half ranch, but other than its natural beauty, has nothing to offer other than a quiet and relaxing escape. We spent six days on Molokai at the end of July. Paniolo Hale is located... More

Our visit to Molokai was fantastic. Like other reviewers, we were a bit nervous about our accommodations given the mixed reviews, but our stay in unit T2 was great. Everything was very clean, comfortable, and spacious. I loved the view out of the upstairs bedroom--flowering tree by day and stars by night. The large screened lanai made everything feel very...

This was my first visit, my husband had been before. We live in Kona HI and are used to the critters of the tropics. The kitchen must be kept CLEAN, cans and bottles rinsed out, and rubbish taken out every nite. We stayed in unit Q2, very nicely decorated, and clean. We booked thru the vacation rental agency, and they... More

After having stayed in beautiful I2 the previous year, we wanted to return to Paniolo Hale, this time with more family. We chose F3 because of its oceanfront location, and because the description and photos indicated 3 bedrooms, able to accommodate the 5 adults and one child we were expecting to bring. Well, good thing two cancelled at the last... More

Our stay in unit O-1, dubbed by the owners as "the only one," was the worst experience we've ever had with accomodations in all our travels. The first night a rodent scurried through the upstairs bed. It took some doing but we steered it out the balcony door. On closer inspection we found rodent dropping throughout the upstairs including in... More
