<p>For Crystal Swink, <a href="http://www.gohawaii.com/molokai/" target="_blank">Molokai</a> is an ideal destination at the end of summer (or anytime of year). "Most of the island is still virgin, unpopulated, beautifully desolate land," she says, and this "offers privacy, seclusion, and a genuine Hawaiian atmosphere." With its limited development, Molokai's hotel choices are slim, so Swink suggests booking a vacation rental. Good sources for such rentals include <a href="http://www.vrbo.com/vacation-rentals/usa/hawaii/molokai" target="_blank">VRBO</a> and <a href="http://www.homeaway.com/Hawaii-vacation-rentals/Molokai-vacation-rentals.htm" target="_blank">HomeAway</a>.</p><p>(Photo: Crystal Swink)</p>
