About the property

Plantation-Style Estate - 3 Bedroom, 2.5 Bathroom

The Mother Ocean or Ke Moana Makuahine (in Hawaiian Language)™ is a 2-acre Monkey Pod and Palm Tree-Laden Park with a 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath Main Residence. This beautiful, secure and secluded beachfront estate adjoins 270 feet of a private, child-safe, and riptide-free sandy beach. The comfortable back lanai enjoys spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean and the island of Lanai. Enjoy a glass of champagne as you sit and watch the sunset or marvel at the thrilling views of breaching humpback whales all day long in the Kalohi Channel between Lanai and Molokai Islands during the winter months. For diving and snorkeling enthusiasts, Hawaii's longest fringing coral reef (30 miles long) lies just over 600 feet from our beach. There you can see all of the sea life living in and surrounding the reef, including Hawaiian green sea turtles. Our private setting also includes your own natural pool with soothing waterfall.

Paradise within paradise

  • 5 of 5

We've been to Hawaii many times over the last 25 years and love coming back. This was our first time staying on Molokai. Over the years we have developed a love and appreciation for the people, the culture, the land and the music. If you are looking for a place to relax and refresh, this is the place. Nowhere else in Hawaii can you find such paradise within paradise. The house is beautiful inside and out, with everything you need, and it became our home for a week. Two acres on the ocean with a private pool, wow. It was just the two of us and it was worth every penny. We absolutely loved it and are talking about when we might be able to come back (maybe for our 30th anniversary). Molokai a special place and we loved that feel of old Hawaii. If you are looking for city lights and nightlife, Molokai is probably not for you. If you want tranquility, peace and quiet, the Mother Ocean is the perfect place.

I loved my stay - a house with a heart

  • 5 of 5

The mother ocean is a place on heaven. The house itself is just perfect, with character, heart and a owner that loves it’s peace on heaven.

Thank you very much for sheering this wonder with us. We also took care as if it were our own beloved house!

The only thing that I missed was the gentle cycle to wash my clothes.

Great house. Very comfortable and well equipped. Great location and views.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay on Molokai. We were very active, trying to squeeze in as much as we could and a 10 day stay. It was great coming home to a house with a pool. We rented a kayak so that we could explore right from the back of the house. Overall a A very relaxing and fun filled stay.

Best place to stay on Molokai!!

  • 5 of 5

The Mother Ocean was exactly what we needed! We had just got married on Kona and wanted a place to relax and enjoy the quiet of Molokai. The place is amazing and was clean and well stocked when we arrived! We loved the layout and decor. The home is very private and you forget you're near the main road. We loved the chairs by the ocean, the hammock on the back porch and laying in the sun near the pool. The bed was comfy and the tub in the master was a great place to relax. Walking on the beach was great...we rarely saw anyone. Due to the winds, we didn't get out on the ocean in kayaks or SUP's.

Julie was fantastic to work with and was quick to reply and helpful. She gave us great information prior to our arrival.

If we had to make any would be to purchase a propane BBQ for the would've been nice to have one to use. The charcoal BBQ was not an option. And only one other thing...we completely understand that landscapers and pool cleaners will access the property, it would just be nice to have a schedule of when to expect them. This is not a huge deal...just a suggestion.

We will definitely stay here again if we go back to Molokai! If you're going to Molokai, this is the place to stay and worth the money!!

Owner's Response: With a private pool, a lush garden, and two acres of lawn, this property requires consistent maintenance. Our regular onsite team prides themselves on being inconspicuous and considerate of our guests' privacy. During this stay, our team had an off-island emergency and we required the services of a substitute team whose schedule was less predictable.
