About the Owners

Aloha all,

We are the Carlton's, Mike & Yvette. We are a military family who recently retired from the Air Force (2016) and moved to Molokai from Oahu. We love Hawaii, but after 7 years on Oahu, we felt it was time to make a change. The constant traffic and endless construction took it's toll. It got to the point we did not want to leave our neighborhood, as we had no idea how long we would be stuck in traffic and return home. When retirement came, we made our move to Molokai to manage our vacation rental. We had always dreamed of owning a vacation home that we could use whenever we wanted, and also to setup as a vacation rental with all of the great things we have seen in our travels. We vacationed on Molokai in 2015 and and fell in love with the island and the people. One thing led to another and Hale Kamaluhia materialized. Hale Kamaluhia is Hawaiian for "House of Serenity", which is what we feel every time we are there. 

We managed Hale Kamaluhia for a year from Oahu. Yvette flew over after every guest to clean and I flew over as needed to do maintenance. Our 2nd rental (Kahakai Hale, Hawaiian for "Beach House") was approved in 2017 and is the 1st permitted B&B on Molokai. 

We want our guests to feel like they are coming home or to a cherished family vacation spot, so we have tried to provide everything you would need, except food & clothing. 

We continually strive to improve and keep information & pictures current. Contact us for more information and be sure to follow us on facebook , to see the latest news and specials.
