We came to Hawaii (Oahu) from New England with the Navy back in 1989 and fell in love with the people, the island, and the climate. We were blessed to return to Oahu again in 2009, but the increasing traffic made it less enjoyable & took a toll on us. In May of 2015, we made our first visit to Molokai & immediately fell in love with the island and the people. It's like "country" in the tropics. Imagine Hawaii of the past, unspoiled country and untouched beaches, no traffic & no stoplights! It reminded us a bit of the Oahu we knew 25 years ago, but even less developed. We retired from the Air Force this year (2016) and moved to Molokai full time, enabling us to focus on managing and maintaining our vacation rentals. If you like lights, noise, chain stores & restaurants, construction and need constant entertainment, then Molokai may not be for you. But if you love the ocean, are looking for peace, tranquility, beauty and want to see the Hawaii of yesterday, you may never want to leave.
