We stayed at Rose & Gene'...
We stayed at Rose & Gene's condo at #115 Ke Nani Kai from May 28th until June 4th, 2009 after spending a week in Poipu on Kauai. Our impression was that, while Kauai is becoming ever more touristy, Molokai is becoming less so. If you want a vacation in which stress melts away entirely, then do yourself a favor and visit Molokai. Better yet, stay at Rose & Gene's place on the sunny west side of the island. The condo overlooks the 3-mile long Papohaku Beach, light pollution is minimal so that the night sky is illuminated in a way that few ever see (you can see the Milky Way galaxy head-on), you are visited on the lanai by wild turkeys in the early morning and late afternoon and by bufo toads in the evening, and the fully-equipped kitchen, furnishings and Rose's decorative sensibilities make you feel right at home on this island paradise. Some of the most pristine and secluded beaches are on the west side and within walking distance from the condo (we especially liked Kepuhi Beach located just off the "back 9" of the Kaulakoi Resort and the two Mauliuli Beaches directly north of Kepuhi Beach). Also, within a 5~10 minute drive is Dixie Maru Cove, which is ideal for snorkeling and swimming. Be sure to take the mule ride down into Kaulapapa and to drive to the east side of the island to see Halawa Valley. Also, people told us that the guided hike through the Halawa Valley led by Eddie Tanaka is worthwhile. Rose provides information on how to contact Eddie to schedule a tour. We can't wait to return.
