Even though Molokai Ranch shut down in 2008, you will still find a decent selection of vacation homes in Maunaloa. Most of the vacation rentals here are affordable condos but you can also find upscale oceanfront villas in the area of Papohaku Beach. Maunaloa has a post office, a small supermarket, a gallery and a gift shop. More shopping options are available in Kaunakakai, a 16-mile (26 km) drive from here, which you would not mind driving because the highway (Route 460) has amazing ocean and mountains views and no traffic.
If you are looking for peace and tranquility, Kaluakoi is your ideal vacation destination. You will find a good selection of vacation rentals, from affordable fully-equipped condos to luxurious beachfront villas. The Kaluakoi area has several beautiful white-sand beaches, such as 2-mile long Papohaku Beach. Here you will feel as if you stepped back in time. The surrounding land is mostly undeveloped and is covered by kiawe trees making creaking sounds in the wind. It's like they are singing a mystical song, the song of the Old Hawaii.
