- Please sign-in at the front desk within 24 hours of arrival. Copies of the Wavecrest rules and much Aloha are available there. Take note of the pool rules - glassware and containers are forbidden. If you break any glass there they are required to drain the pool to clean it. (You will be unpopular.)
- The Laundry room key (the big square one with the coiled arm-bracelet which is hanging on a little rack on the wall to the left of the stove, as well as and alongside a walk-around front door key). The laundry rooms are located in the center stairwells of each floor. This key also gets you into the tennis courts. Please return the keys to their rack and to the lock boxes. If the Laundry room key is lost, they charge us $50.00 to replace it.
- You will want to stockpile some quarters if you want to do your laundry. Two washer loads equal one dryer load. If you use the last of the detergent, please replace it.

- 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 (wireless is available) at the triangular desk. You can play music out of your computer using the 2-1 adaptor to the speakers and the Bose (in AUX mode). The Bose plays mp3s as well as CDs. The TV, DVD, and VCRs instructions are in a basket inside the peninsula cabinet down by the end.
- 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 Nakai (558-8174), or Cap. Joe (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 surly 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.
- 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. You'll want reservations there if you stay for dinner.
- Relax down by the pool -- and check out that lending library.
- 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.
