Laurent and Joanna Portland, Oregon Jan 2106 Beautiful location and nice well-kept condo. Appreciated the binder full of local information with things to see and do. Would stay here again and recommend.

Aloha Molokai! We had a very peaceful and romantic stay here - exactly what we hoped. Quiet beaches, soliitude, relaxation, comfort and beauty. We drove the entire island and enjoyed the many views - a vista view of the leper colony, the waterfall on the east end of the island, sunsets galore! Thank you for all the details taken care of for a nice stay.

We had a great time in your condo, especially the breakfasts and dinners on the lanai. The view is magnificent. The area is so quiet and unspoiled which is so hard to find these days. Thanks for having us! All the best. DON"T CHANGE MOLOKAI. LET MOLOKAI CHANGE YOU!
Lindsay and Danny NY and Ohio Sept. 2015
Had a great time here - loved how quiet and remote it is here. Beautiful and unspoiled! Thanks for everything. Great place!
Colleen and Courtney Wash. D.C. Sept. 2015
Lovely place and so peaceful! Thanks for having us. Loved the pool!
Sean and Kim Big Island, HI August 2015
What a great time we had. Much of it doing nothing but relaxing here or by the beaches. Even though we live on the Big Island now, coming to Molokai is still a treat. We haven't been back since '07 when we were here on our honeymoon. Glad not much has changed. No cities, no tourist malls, just rural Hawaii at its best! Sad to see the golf course gone, though. Best things were meals on the lanai, sunsets, walking to nearby lovely beaches (a real treat). This is a lovely place, well set-up. We hope to return soon this time. Aloha!
John California July 2015
Thanks, guys. All your tips were great. Good stuff. Love doing the Molokai slide. Will be back.
Tom and Angelika Tennessee May 2015

Mahalo for such a peaceful space to enjoy the breezes and beautiful ocean view. This short stay was a very nice and comfortable experience. Everything necessary to breath freely and enjoy a low-key Molokai experience. Peace and Paz.
Anja and Eike Germany April 2015
We really enjoyed the stay in your condo. Thank you very much!
TM and Melis Netherlands April 2015
What a view from the room! We had all meals on the lanai with the nice breeze and beautiful ocean view. Weather was great for all four nights staying in this lovely and homey condo. It is indeed a home away from home. Be sure to watch the sunset, very beautiful! Sky is clear and beautiful! Mahalo!
GB and MJ Colorado April 2015
We loved this condo and all of Molokai! We hope to be back someday in the future. We just wanted to relax and this place fit the bill! Mahalo!
Ron and Suzanne Nebraska March 2015 Barbara and Cal, thanks so much for your hospitality! We enjoyed staying in your wonderful Molokai Dreams Villa. We arrived on a Sunday and were scrounging the town for something to have for breakfast the next day. I bought some instant coffee packets, but was thrilled to find coffee here when we arrived! We appreciate all of the little touches and amenities. We have been having the trip of a lifetime here! We hiked the Kalaupapa penninsula, tried Snuba for the first time, swam with turtles and did the famous bakery bread run! We would especially recommend 'Molokai Ocean Tours' for snorkeling and whale watching. And awesome family fun tour. We've had such a wonderful time here, wish it were longer. We are off to north shore Oahu this morning. Hope to return here one day and just relax! Mahalo.
(Note: We thought Snuba was a typo. But, there really is Snuba - kind of like Scuba diving, but with a mask and hose. Who knew?)
David and Judy Long Beach, WA. March 2015
We have really enjoyed your condo. All our neighbors say ours is nicer than theirs and we agree! Very comfortable and nice amenities. Would recommend a fly swatter. We relaxed, swam, snorkeled, shopped and ate lots of good food. Thanks!
Chris and Lisa Sandpoint, Idaho March 2015
What a relaxing time we had for our honeymoon! Thanks for such a comfortable condo! We will be back! We spent most of our time discovering new beaches, searching for seashells and reading books. All the amenities really enhanced our stay! We are off to the Big Island for a few more days of adventure before returning to Idaho. Mahalo!
Rima McDonald Alabama January 2015
Thank you for sharing your piece of paradise. My daughter and I were very comfortable living here for 8 days; feels like home. I personally appreciate that your condo is fully furnished with practically everything we need including some unexpired food ingredients such as salt, pepper, etc. Even detergent! Would love to come again. A hui hou!
Chris and Clint from Spokane, WA. May 5. 2014 A welcome home in Paradise
My husband and I spent 6 full days at the Russell's condo. There were so many extra touches that made our visit so wonderful. Provided were Dvd's, books,brochures about the island,music,movies. As sun hat for the beaches ,mats to repel sand.. plenty of towels for all our wet beach and snorkeling excursions. Great cookware for using at home. The wonderful Molokai breeze was always welcome while we slept in our very comfortable bed. The lookout on the beachfront was lovely too. It was a quiet retreat from all the noise back home. Thank you for sharing it with us.

Chris: My hopes were fulfilled to visit a Hawaiian Island that was filled with natural beauty and little tourism. This place fits the bill completely! Clint & I tried to explore every nook and cranny of the island. We hiked Halawa Valley,did the mule ride, snorkeled with Capt. Tim. I highly recommend. Your home here lacks for nothing. It seems like you've thought of every lovely convenience, Thank you!
Clint: Chris and I spent a week that was absolutely marvelous! It is so wonderful to spend the night with the wonderful cool ocean breeze. As Chris said we did everything was to do and ended it with a post a nut for her sister's birthday. Molokai is so laid back. I have been to Maui, but I recommend Molokai to everyone and Molokai Dreams as the place to spend it.
(Chris & Clint from Spokane shared such nice experiences and reviews in our guestbook, we wanted to include them along with their VRBO review they so kindly submitted above. Thank you! We hope you can return some day!)
Jeff and Tina Northwest Territories, Canada April 24, 2014
We had a wonderful time in paradise! Enjoyed relaxing, swimming in the ocean and pool. Really made this feel like home! Three days wasn't long enough on this beautiful place. Did lots of driving and enjoyed every minute! Look forward to coming back! It was the perfect start to our honeymoon!
Andrea and Stuart Prince George, British Columbia March 13, 2014 Awesome little Condo!
Thanks Barbara and Cal for sharing your piece of paradise with us. It was exactly what my husband and I needed. The condo is described perfectly. We enjoyed Dolphins and whales while at the pool and whales from the Lanai and of course my new Turkey friends. I will miss them standing out front of the Lanai at 6:30 am sharp waiting for me to get up.
Carren Gaddis Jan 27, 2014 Cute cottage for two.
This studio is great for the price they are asking for it. The owners were extra helpful in giving us early check in and late check out if there was no conflict with another party. Also, we had to postpone our trip because of a family emergency and the owners were totally understanding and let us re-book without any extra fees. The townhouse is in a good position in the complex. We loved watching the wild turkeys and peacocks on the lawn in front of our unit. The ocean view was nice too. The kitchen was well stocked with dishes, glasses, pots & pans, etc. Easy to cook in. My only complaint was the door handles in the bathroom need replacing and the front door lock seems to not work. We had a great time and I would recommend this unit to anyone!
(Owners Note:) Thank you for taking the time to leave a review! You'll be happy to know the door knob has been replaced. Thanks for the feedback about the front door, it is working fine now. We are happy you were able to stay and that you had a great time. Aloha - Barbara & Cal
Evelyn Rodriguez - June 26, 2013
This studio is perfect for a couple. It has everything you need, even guide books, movies, etc. The only bad thing is that it desn't have WIFI internet, only cable, so we couldn't connect. Kapuhi beach resort is really guiet & walking distance to the beach. After a week in Oahu, we relaxed in Molokai.
(NOTE; We now have WIFI!)
Janice Brown - April 13, 2013
If you're looking for relaxation and getting away from it all, Molokai is the right choice. It is a quiet island where the locals take pride in where they live and wish to keep it as is. There are plenty of things to do including snorkeling, diving, beach combing, hiking, paddling, exploring the red dirt roads - get a 4x4 if want a bit more adventure. The Saturday morning market is fun, too. We watched the sunset every evening from a beautiful beach - amazing!
If you are looking for a comfortable, clean, cozy and very reasonably priced condo for your stay on Molokai, then you are on the right track with this condo. We spent eight comfortable nights here, enjoyed the sound of the surf on beach at night, the wind in the palms and the birds waking us up each morning. It was very quiet on the property during our stay - not many others around. Consequently, we often had local beaches to ourselves sharing with only a handful of others - often locals - which is amazing for Hawaii. The surf was up during our stay which meant local beaches in our area were too hazardous to swim in, but we enjoyed watching the waves and surf and a few adventurous surfers and playing in it when we could. The "resort" area is isolated so it is best to have a car and make sure you get stocked with food and beverages from town. There are basics available from the small store on the property and nearby in Maunaloa. At one time this resort must have been quite the place, but be prepared to find abandoned buildings on the property and an overgrown golf course. However the grounds are well maintained as is the pool area. The BBQ is close by and we used it often. The staff working on the propery are friendly. The view from the lanai was beautfiul and we never tired of enjoying or appreciating it, especially the humpback whale show - spouting, surfacing, breaching whales everyday was exciting to see from the comfort of our unit. The unit itself is well maintained and stocked with everything you need to prepare a holiday meal away from home and to be comfortable. The linens were very nice and we appreciated the beach towels. There are good laundry facilities a short walk away. We had great access to internet as well. I don't hesitate to recommend this condo. Barb & Cal were great to deal with, very prompt in their responses answering all of our pre-booking questions and accommodating our needs. It is very comfortable for one couple. Aloha!!
Lo Gauvin - December 12, 2011
My sister and I stayed at the condo for a week, and we had a great experience. If you do your research and a real get-away is on your agenda, Molokai is a wonderful choice! We enjoyed discovering remote deep-water bays at the end of several miles of dirt-road, long walks down a beautiful wind-swept beach-path with a super-cute local dog that adopted us, a devine bakery in town with the Worlds Best Mexican Butter Cookies, and friendly locals every where we went . We did not use the local store on site, because we found a charming General Store a few miles from the condo on the old macadamia nut farm. Barb and Cal, the owners of the condo, were very helpful, and the info they sent us when we booked was all were ever needed to get around. They went out of their way to provide everything we needed, including dropping off things that were not included in the contract. They gave us insider information on things like saving money on rental cars and the best airlines, and tips to see "locals only" things like the ancient fish-ponds. Barb was even super understanding when we missed our flight and arrived late! The place was very clean and included everything you could need for an amazing stay. We ended up staying a few extra days because we didn't want to leave! I would not only recommend the condo, I will be back ! Recommended for: Adventure Seekers, Girls Getaway, Sightseeing
Bob & Libby Lucas - Dec 13, 2011
Our stay at this condo has been extremely relaxing getting away from the main-stream. The condos are owenership with accommodations that make you feel at home. Beautiful sun sets & great sheltered swimming cove up the road. Molokai is like going back in time with no rush, a perfict place to unwind. Bob & Lib Recommended for: Age 55+, Adventure Seekers
Jamie & Courtney Crawford - December 27, 2009
This condo was cute and studio style with the pull-out bed, living space, and kitchen all open and the bathroom area closed off. It was very clean and fully stocked. Everything you would have in your home, they have in this condo available for your use. We were surprised at everything was available to us. The Russell's really try to make their condo your home away from home. The information in the books and binders had a lot of helpful information for our stay. We loved the views that we had from the lanai as well as the short walks to the beach were a sunrise and sunset must. The laundry facilities were extremely close by and the shopette was just a short walk away and had pretty much everything you needed. We loved Molokai so much, it was a great break from the hustle and bustle of tourism and city life we see on Oahu. We loved its "small-town" feel, as we are both originally from small towns in Virginia. We loved the lush green landscapes, the spotted deer and other wildlife, the gorgeous secluded beaches, the gorgeous hikes to waterfalls, and the people were extremely nice there. We did not have one bad experience and we would recommend that everyone take a trip to Molokai and stay at the Russell's condo!

Lakota & Billy Storlie - Sep 23, 2010 Great relaxing location!
My husband and I enjoyed our Honeymoon in Molokai. This condo was perfect for us! We understood there was not alot to do on this island and we were excited to have some time to relax. (We spent a few days in Maui on our way home.) The beach views were beautiful and it was very peaceful at this condo location. The condo was very well kept and clean. It was fun to see some of the locals surfing. The beaches were nice and clean and very secluded. We enjoyed walking on the grounds and visiting the nearby shops. We bought groceries in town and enjoyed being able to cook at the condo and on the BBQ pit. We have recommeded this condo to our friends and we can't wait to go back. What a great price for our tropical vacation. Recommended for: Age 55+, Adventure Seekers, Girls Getaway, Sightseeing, Romantic Getaway
Karen & Steve - Sep 22, 2007
What a relaxing, wonderful vacation we had with our two grown daughters in March '07. We joked that every view on the island must be a postcard. When the whales are breeching- it's just breathtaking! We couldn't believe how beautiful Molokai is and how wonderful the people are who live there. I highly recommend Barbara and Cal's totally stocked, clean, comfortable home away from home!
