One hundred percent (100%) of base rental amount is required at time of reservation plus a non-refundable reservation fee of $30.00, unless approved by MVP.  We strongly recommend the optional Travel Insurance shown in your quotation for consideration in lieu of our cancellation fee.  A valid credit card number will be required for online or phone reservations.

A tentative reservation can be placed without prepaid rent to hold property for up to 3 days but will not be binding unless reservation fee is received within 3 business days of placement.  A Tentative Reservation will also be void if another Reservation comes in for the same time frame and property having immediate rental monies.

A valid credit card number is required so that the Owner can reasonably recover cost of damages incurred accidentally or willfully by Guest(s) if not covered by the damage waiver.  Please read information regarding damage waiver in detail – this is separate from the Travel Insurance plan.

Payment of a reservation may be paid by personal check, money order, cashier’s check, VISA, MasterCard, American Express, or Discover. Checks should be made payable to Molokai Vacation Properties, Inc. 189 Makanui Road,  Kaunakakai,  HI 96748.  If there is a balance it is required to be paid 30 days prior to arrival.  No checks will be accepted for balance due on arrival unless received one month prior to arrival date. Any check returned by the bank for whatever reason will be charged a $50.00 statutory fee and possible cancellation of Reservation and all rights and privileges hereunder. Meeting the satisfactory standards listed on the check-in/check-out packet will help ensure you will not be charged for any excess damage costs. Late check-outs are not permitted during peak season Dec through April. During off-season, late checkouts may be considered but must be approved in advance.


A $45  nonrefundable Property Protection is optional for all reservations. Manager requires a valid Visa, Master Card, American Express or Discover Card number on file in addition to the $45 Property Protection.  The Property Protection is a nonrefundable Fee that relieves Guests of the cost for accidental damage to the Rental Property and/or contents, not to exceed the amount of coverage up to $1500.00. The unintentional and/or accidental damage must be reported immediately to management in order for the Property Protection to activate. Accidental damages beyond $1500.00 will be charged to the guest using their credit card on file.

The Property Protection does not cover intentional damage, theft, unauthorized entry into the owner’s supply closet, unauthorized pets, extensive cleaning required at check-out, smoking, exceeding occupancy limits or parking limits, and any other charges/polices in Manager’s Rental Policies and Rental Agreement including any fines imposed on Manager by the City, County, State or Home Owner Association as the result of violation of any law, ordinance, rule or regulation or any fines or costs levied against Guest or visitors of Guest (Excess Damage Costs). Guest will be notified of any Excess Damage Costs by phone and/or in writing. Any Excess Damage Costs will also be charged immediately to the Guest’s credit card. Guest, by signing above, assumes full responsibility for any items found to be missing and any damage due to misuse, negligence or action on Guests or Guests’ visitors part, except in the case of normal wear-and-tear reported to Manager within 48 hours of Check-in.


If you have secured the rental property with prepaid rent and reservation fee, then it is understood between both parties that you accept the rental terms and conditions as stated in this contract. The payment schedule is as follows:

At time of reservation: 100% of base rent plus, and all other reservation fees and travel insurance as offered


Travel Insurance is offered to help protect your vacation investment. While this insurance is optional, some of our owners are currently paying for the travel insurance in behalf of their tenants as an extra incentive.

The Travel Insurance Plan covers the rent and reservation fee paid for the home or condo you reserved. It does not reimburse for the insurance premium regardless of who purchased. Travel Insurance premiums are non-taxable, are non-refundable, and are due with Initial reservation payment regardless of whether purchased by tenant or by owner.

All guests can view a brochure outlining the travel insurance along with the Rental contract on our website,

To speak with a Travel Insurance representative, please call our office and we will give you their number.

Travel Insurance is normally purchased by the guest when you make your initial rental payment.* Once the insurance policy number is received by Molokai Vacation Properties Inc., it is non-refundable and immediately in effect.


If you choose to decline the Travel Insurance no monies can be refunded unless the property is re-rented at no financial loss to the homeowner and to Molokai Vacation Properties, Inc. If that occurs, a $100.00 cancellation fee will be charged.  We will do our best to re-rent your reserved accommodation for the same rate and time period but cannot guarantee in any way that a replacement can or will be found. All cancellations must be received in writing, by fax or by Email, at which time the property will be placed as available on our online reservations system. Cleaning fees will be refunded to your credit card on file. Please note the timeframes below:


  1. Condominium rentals: MVP will retain $200 if cancelled outside 30 days,  nonrefundable if within 30 days of rental.
  2. House rentals: MVP will retain $200 if cancelled outside 45 days, nonrefundable if within 45 days of rental.
  3. Any Monthly rentals: MVP will retain $200 if cancelled outside 60 days, nonrefundable if with in 60 days of rental.
