Dunbar Beachfront Cottages - Kainalu, Molokai
Your own secluded beach awaits on the lush East end of Moloka'i.
Here, on the most Hawaiian island, the stress and worries of the modern world seem to wash away with each new tide.
Here is Hawai'i as it once was. Peaceful, relaxed and beautiful. The Hawai'i of 50 years ago.
Come! Let the magic of the warm Pacific and this wonderful island soothe your soul.
Come! Enjoy the serenity of Kainalu.
Each of our two vacation homes is situated right at the water's edge and each has its own secluded beach. The 2 bedroom, one bath designs provide panoramic vistas of the islands of Maui, Lana'i and Kaho'olawe. Perfect vantage points for whale watching from December through April.
The Pauwalu house is at beach level and is probably the better choice for families with small child...

Hands down the best customer service and vacation rental experience from Leslie Dunbar for Pauwalu Cottage to celebrate our birthdays. Her email instructions accurately prepared us for the limited resources on the island which is proud to boast there are no stop lights-it's that small and laid back. The cottage location at Kaunakaki (check the view on GoogleEarth) was ideal...

Absolutely loved it. My wife, ditto. Beautiful, clean, private, beachfront .... and you meet the greatest people - close to Halawa valley, 20-mile beach, sunrise over Mau'i. Kip Dunbar built it himself, with all the touches of a serious craftsman. Cathedral living room, hardwood floors, and more and more and more. Wifi, complete kitchen, room for four - we celebrated... more

We loved the cute cottage--right on the water with its own little beach. It is about a 30-minute drive into the nearest town but there is a small "goods" store with a lunch counter about 10 minutes away.
