Centrally located on the south shore just before the 5-mile marker (east of Kaunakakai). Walk to the beach. We back onto a wild area full of wildlife.

We’re across the road from the ocean and a 5 minute walk to a public beach – yes it is swimmable. We have magnificent views up to the historic Kawela mountains. Many rainbows towards evening. Morning walks along the beach are easy and the water is swimmable since we are on the south shore which is rimmed by a 28-mile barrier reef – one of Molokai’s best kept secrets.

The house and garden is private with a 10-foot hedge surrounding the yard, and the back garden of the property adjoins a wild area which rises up into the famous Kawela mountains. We are definitely in the country – with deer using a trail behind us (you can watch for them if you are an early riser), Francolins (small partridges) feeding in the bush, and countless birds nesting and roosting in the garden. We have numerous fruit trees, palms, vegetable garden, herb garden, and flowers – hence “HALE MALA” means the garden house.

Plenty of Amenities & Aloha

  • 900 sq.ft. suite surrounded by lanai and tropical garden. More spacious than most condos our guests tell us.
    Fully-equipped kitchen including microwave, fridge, toaster, coffee maker,etc. It’ll be like cooking at home.
  • Wireless Internet available
  • The four rooms include your own spacious living room, bright kitchen/dining area, bedroom for two (with two day beds in the living room you can sleep up to four with privacy for everyone), and bathroom with combination tub and shower.
  • Cable television and cassette/CD/radio stereo.
  • BBQ available (supply your own charcoal).
  • Solar dryer available (several laundry mats 10 minutes away in Kaunakakai).
  • Lounger and outdoor dining table and chairs overlooking the 6000 sq.ft. front garden.
  • Beach towels provided.
  • Eight sliding windows and two sliding doors, so there is plenty of ventilation to keep the unit cool. An overhead fan in the bedroom.
  • Parking just outside the door, so no “taking suitcases for a walk.”
  • The unit overlooks the orchard and garden so bird watch to your heart’s content. Or meander in the garden and forage a snack on Hawaiian tomatoes.
  • Private! (there is not any interior connection between the two levels).
  • You can be as self sufficient as you want. With the size of the unit, it is more than enough space for comfortable short or longer stays on Molokai.

What Guests Say

This is what Lonely Planet says about us and Molokai…

“Ka Hale Mala is a delightful apartment about four miles east of Kaunakakai. Occupying the ground level of the contemporary home of Jack and Cheryl Corbiell, an amiable Canadian couple, this stands as the best accommodation value on the island. The spotless apartment has exposed beam ceilings and a lanai that looks out on surrounding gardens.”

Peter and Maggie from California wrote “What a wonderful honeymoon! But much too little time was allotted for Molokai and Ka Hale Mala. Thanks for your gracious hospitality (and interesting reading material). Oh yes, and food! We didn’t finish your books or experiencing the island, so we’ll be back.”

Dennis, Maria and Kristin from California wrote “Molokai is really the most Hawaiian of the islands. We enjoyed the water along the longest beach with no other soul on it. Thank you for everything.”

Andria (16) from Calgary wrote “This place is really cool. Cheryl and Jack, thank you for everything. You are really great people. I love your garden and fruit. Beautiful. You made me feel right at home. Thank you so much for everything.”

Chuck and Valerie of Colorado wrote “What fabulous hosts you are! Our Molokai vacation has been like staying with family. Our best interests have been well tended to. This was the vacation we have been dreaming of for years. The special touches of not only incredible breakfasts and flowers, but of the total package down to the aloha. You’ve created memories of a lifetime.”

Martine and Frank from Belgium…”Thank you so much for the wonderful stay. You made us feel immediately at home. Especially the great breakfasts (we needed it to hike into Kalaupapa) and to Jack for bringing us to the Nene. Jack you also gave us a good education about the fruit. We’ll miss you and we hope to come back. ..The Lonely Planet is right. You are the best place to stay on Molokai.”

And the third and fourth members of our household get comments too. Snowball was our white house cat. He adopted us when he was a stray and was our pride and joy. But sadly, he passed away this year. Our new teenagers are Huna and Huli, two teenage kitties. Although they are not allowed in the guest’s apartment to ensure guests with allergies are cat free, you can visit them in our part of the house – they are strictly house cats. Huna is very dignified, while her sister, Huli, craves attention and loves to play. So guests who miss their pets while on vacation, can love Huli and Huna.
