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.

very nice rental for 6 people

  • 5 of 5

The Mother Ocean was perfect for our family of 6. Nice big kitchen everyone could work at once in. We ate every meal there. Both the front and back porches were great hang out spots. The pool is very nice and the ocean behind the house is shallow for quite a ways because of the barrier reef. We also had a great Easter egg hunt on the huge property. Kirsten and Ike were helpful. Ike cut some bananas, which had ripened during our stay, for us. We loved our vacation here. It was peaceful and relaxing.

The pictures don't fully capture the feel

  • 5 of 5

Couldn't be happier with our stay. Location was perfect, house was immaculate. The only real issue was trying to decide whether to hang out poolside or ocean side, because both are stunning.

What an amazing place to stay! It seems impossible, but the pictures don't even do The Mother Ocean justice. We loved every day we spent there, thank you for having us!

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.
