We only rent this vehicle with our vacation condo's (Hale Kamaluhia & Hale Maluhia) or our B&B (Kahakai Hale) only. Please do not request to rent it if you are not staying with us. We don't have our guests book it until just before they arrive, so even though it shows as being available it is not. If you request it and are not staying with us your request will be declined.
The vehicle is located at our house just east of town (11 miles from the airport), so be sure to select "Pick Up at Airport" when reserving it. It is a $30 fee, but you pick it up and drop it off at the airport instead of a $40+ taxi ride each way to our house.
Please select MKK for the delivery location, unless you would like to pick it up at our home (it is approximately a $40 taxi ride each way).
No eating, drinking (water is ok) or smoking in vehicle. Must stay on paved legal roads.
Why is there a fee to meet us at the airport
We live about 12 miles from the airport. It takes us 20 - 25 minutes to get there and the same to get back home. We also have to take 2 cars and gas is almost $5 a gallon and with 2 cars it is almost $10 to drop off the car and the same to pick it up again plus the 6 hours (40 min each way for 2 people to drop off and pick up the vehicle). It is a $40 taxi ride (each way) from the airport to our house.
Can we rent this vehicle if we are not staying at your vacation rental units (Hale Kamaluhia, Hale Maluhia or Kahakai Hale)?
The short answer is No. We don't have our guests book the vehicle until just before they arrive, so even though it shows as being available on the calendar, it is not. Since there are so few rental cars on Molokai and they are very expensive, we provide these vehicles exclusively to our guests. If you request it and are not staying with us your request will be declined.
We experienced two of the cars: Versa and Element. Both were great--clean, in good condition, and got us where we wanted to go. The Element was perfect for the dirt roads on Molokaʻi and the great beaches and scenic sites. Yvette and Mike were really flexible around our needs. We will definitely go back to them next time around.
Yvette was great. Very responsive and a super nice lady. The car was clean and new. Was also very fuel efficient, yet still had plenty of room. The convenience of vehicle pickup and drop off right at the airport was a bonus. I would recommend Yvette to any traveller.
