We stayed at the Pu'unana Beachfront Cottage, which is a little more elevated then the Pauwalu house that's beach level. What a view from the deck, Maui right in front of you across the channel, and Lanai just to the right. We had to pinch ourselves to make sure it was real. Peace and solitude are the key words there....

Don't tell anyone about this place! It's a little piece of heaven on earth! The pictures don't do the place justice. It's very clean and pleasant inside with a small garden area outside and then take 3 more steps and you are on a secluded super safe (shallow and protected) beach. Watch whales from the balcony porch or try snorkelling...

My husband and his sister and her husband and myself spent a week at this cottage. What a pleasant surprise when we walked in the door to see this very nice clean cottage. Loved sleeping at night to the sound of the waves. Our favorite activity was sitting on the deck and watching the whales and seeing Maui and it's...

Wish we were there now. Had a wonderful time. The cottage is a distance from stores and restaurants but well worth it. Bedroom had a nice view and breeze coming through the windows. Enjoyed our private beach, but really loved the patio view of Maui and Lani. Also spectacular sunrise.

We stayed a week in Pu'uana Cottage and it exceeded our expectations. The view from the deck over the ocean was exceptional and it was only a few steps down to the water's edge. The waves provided a lovely sound all evening. You enter into a kitchen that is well laid out and well equipped with a living room off...

Our family (myself, husband and two kids aged 7 and 3) stayed at the Pauwalu cottage for 6 nights in February 2010 and we all loved the experience and were very sad to leave. I have so many good things to say about the cottage and Molokai! This was our first trip to Hawaii and we picked Molokai as a...

We just returned from a ten day stay at the Pauwalu cottage and will definitely be returning there for our next Hawaii visit. This cottage is great for kids. The beach has very easy (and safe) access and the fish pond enclosure turns the ocean front into a wading pool that is perfect for children (I understand the other Dunbar...

We wanted to get away from the tourists and experience the real Hawaii. This met all our expectations! The privacy was fabulous and the secluded beach was beyond description. We stayed for 10 days. We did have a few visiting bugs (famous Hawaiian flying cock roaches) but there were not many and easily manageable. We saw geckos on the windows...
