About John Clarke

Aloha -- I'm John Clarke. My wife Barbara and I will be your hosts.

John Clarke purchased this condo in 2006

Why John Clarke chose Kaunakakai

WE first purchased at the Wavecrest for the tropical beauty and serenity, the way my jaw dropped when I first saw the view from the A-303 Lanai. - Like being in a tropical 3rd world country while still on U.S. soil - The friendly people, the gentle breezes, the relaxation, and the views. It is our getaway from the rest of the world.

What makes this condo unique

Hawaii Oceanfront Condo Wavecrest unit A-303 -- 'Your Vacation Paradise', is one of the few top floor units available in the building closest to the Pacific Ocean at the unique and treasured Wavecrest Resort on Molokai's tropical East end. We're 40 feet from the ocean with three island views of Maui, Kahoolawe, and Lana'i. The whale watching from the lanai is great from December to April. Watch gorgeous, colorful sunrises over Maui each morning, & local fisherman using local techniques to catch the family dinner in the bay in front of A-303.

Very peaceful

  • 5 of 5

Molokai is great if you are wanting a peaceful, quiet vacation. This condo had everything we needed and then some. There are not a lot of options for lodging on Molokai however I thought we choose very well.

Beautiful unit not good for children

  • 1 of 5

Nice unit, owner a bit odd. Left eight rambling messages when returning my call for entrance key and - sink leaks! Didn't know sink was leaking inside cabinet. Until I got a call from the owner saying water was pouring downstairs. Claimed he didn't know about the problem but then asked me if the bowl under the sink was overflowing? Also questioned as to why key was not in the lock box as management needed to get into the unit. There were two keys. I had one and my husband had one - now I'm not sure but it seems kind of funny that management would have to enter a unit without the guests being there? There was no water running all day as we left after breakfast.

Notes on the door from people below about children's footsteps, banging on the ceiling... my children joined up with another couple of children at the pool and management initially held me responsible for all nine kids in the pool... never said a word to the other parents.

By the third day of our stay we were done. Couldn't use the kitchen, didn't want to go back to the pool so we asked to leave. We asked to kindly refund the last night as the kitchen was unusable and this has not been an enjoyable trip. Owner argued and rambled on. Who needs the hassle!

Owner's Response: Extremely difficult and unpleasant. Even though our public calendar shows that our Unit was scheduled for "back-to-backs"s at both the beginning and of their their visit, she wrote asking to check-in early and check-out late. She was courteously refused. There was no talk of a plumbing issue until the day before they left. After check-in, the neighbors down below had to call in requesting that her children be stopped from running around like wild animals. She then took her party down to the pool area, where they continued to do the same -- resulting I'm Management's being cslled In again. She then called me asking to have her last days' rent forgiven, saying that she wanted to check-out that same day. with that much notice. She then demand´d she that she get what she wanted or that she would write a bad review, which I presume that she has done. March 2018

Lovely, peaceful stay

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Molokai and we really enjoyed this condo. Loved sitting on the balcony watching the whales. The kitchen is well-stocked with pans and utensils. We had a bit of a hiccup at the beginning of our stay, but John contacted us quickly and made it right. If you decide to visit Molokai, keep in mind that it is not as commercialized as the other islands. We arrived on a Sunday evening and the only place to get groceries was a small convenience store. But we truly enjoyed the peace and lack of traffic. It is now our favorite island!

View is nice, when the door works.

  • 1 of 5

This condo was fine. When we got there, the lanai door was stuck. We called the owner and he said the people before us reported it as broken, but yet it still wasn’t fixed. When we said we wanted it fixed to enjoy the lanai, John replied “well what do you want me to do about it?” Not a response you expect from a owner. The view from the lanai was the best part, as you can see whales breaching. After a few phone calls with the owner, he finally sent someone to replace the screen door on the lanai, but it wasn’t just that in need of repair. John was great about communication (a little too much info) before arrival, but not as good after we arrived.

Owner's Response: I’d like to start by telling you what I remember. I got a call from a fellow who had just checked in. He was tired and frustrated. He told me that the screen door was stuck, and wouldn’t move. Considering the hour, I told him that I couldn’t get any one out there right now; but would look into it tomorrow. The previous guests had told me that the door was balky (NOT STUCK SHUT). I had called my handyman, Earl, to come and fix it. — but he wrote back that day that he was much too busy. I suggested to the guest that he take 2 kitchen knives and I could talk him through flipping the door off the track. Nope — not interested in doing anything like that. OK. How about looking under the bed to see if there is a spare door there. (I usually keep 1 or more on hand,,,,,,,,,,on more than two occasions, We’ll have a guest who’s enjoyed the cocktail hour so that they waltz right through the closed door. Nope. — not gonna happen. OK. What to do? I told him that I’d call around the next day & see who could help us. I did NOT say “well, what to you want me to do about it?” I would NEVER SAY THAT TO A GUEST.. nor to anyone, unless it was in jest.. So. — What to do? I’m going to offer to return the $500.00 rental fee. I have to hold onto the tax and cleaning $, as I owe it to others. I respectfully request that this false statement be taken down within 30 days. .If not, I will look into legal action for libel. The door was replaced day after that. These people will never darken my door again. Thank You. — John Clarke

The View is Great!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great week in Wavecrest 303. The condo has all the amenities and is very clean and comfortable. The view from the lanai is spectacular, the sunrises are beautiful. There are a few, very minor, things that could be improved at very low cost (i.e., leaky faucets, dead batteries in the TV remote, etc.) But the Wavecrest pool is excellent - a daily swim is a must, and the grounds crew deserves a metal, the place always looks well groomed. Especially considering the bargain price, we highly recommend this condo to all.
