- Please feel free to use the answering service. Dial 558-0011,
enter the code -- #0011 -- then 1. (Try to erase your accumulated

- You will be well advised to keep the screen door closed as much as
possible, especially at night. There are lots of harmless black bugs
that fly in - attracted by the lights. Speaking of bugs, - it is very
important everywhere in the Tropics to NOT leave Foodstuffs out on the
countertops or floors, especially sweets and fruit. We make every
effort to keep this place clean; please help us out in this endeavor,
by taking the trash out to the dumpsters every day.
- At the end of your stay - Tina--- our housekeeper, will appreciate it if you leave unused sheets and towels where they were; leave used sheets on the beds (left unmade), and used towels in the hamper in the
bathroom. We always try to rinse off the dishes; then put them in the
dishwasher, and run it before we leave.
- If you've brought your laptop, you can plug into the high-speed
Internet at the triangular dest. Free wireless is also available -- try wavecrest "A" or "Cabana" -- no password is required. You can play
music out of your computer to the white speakers below. The TV, Bose, NetGear (Netflix is active at no extra charge) & DVD instructions are either in a basket in the lower kitchen cabinet to the right of the sink, or below the the TV.
- Please put the little black band back around the bottom end of the Murphy bed when you fold it up.
- Tennis racquets and balls and are in the tall pantry closet. Play is first come - first served, during daylight hours. More rackets and shuffleboard equipment are available at the front desk. The big square key gets you in.
- This apartment should be clean upon your arrival; -- and stocked with: TP, paper towels, dishwasher soap, and hand and bar soap.
- Activities we highly recommend: swimming (or better, snorkeling)
at 20 mile beach early in the morning -- especially when the wind has
been down overnight and the tide is at mean or higher. (If there are a
lot of rocks showing in the little lagoon off to the left as you look
out from the lanai, you'll be better off going in at a later time.)
Early on in the trip, - try fishing with either Walter Naki
(808-558-8174), or Cap. Joe (808-558-8377); and you just might fill the
freezer. Absolutely - you must try driving out East to the Halawa
Valley, which will take you back through three microclimates to a
beautiful beach. Drive over to the Kalaupapa Lookout (or better yet,
walk into Kalaupapa, ride in on the mules, or fly in - John's
favorite.) This is surely one of the most exquisite pieces of scenery
in the world - and one with what must be one of our most tragic
histories. Contact: Molokai Fish and Dive at 808-553-5926.
- Take a drive over to see Popohaku (and also Dixie) beaches --
especially early in the morning. Please DO NOT ATTEMPT TO SWIM
POPOHAHU BEACH. People are lost there every year to the rip. Dixie
Maru -- a little further down the road -- is great.
- Try eating at the Cookhouse, or Paddler's Inn, or -- our favorite
spot -- The Hotel Molokai. Late Friday afternoon,around 5:00pm, listening to the Kapunas there is a must.
- Relax down by the pool at the resort -- and check out that lending library. Please leave my own books up in the apartment. You may use any of the CD's or DVD's you see in the bookcases.
- If something is awry or if you have any questions, please call John at 1-800-396-9050 (c), or at home at 805-772-1262. Please remember, it's 2-6 hours later on the mainland than it is in Hawaii. ENJOY.
