not sure what to expect for this place, but when we walked into the cottage, it felt wonderful! The opened screens and the fruit made a great impression! The sun is up earlier here then what we are custom. So, as to that I was awake by 5:30 every morning. The birds, cows and the sun woke me! It was ok because we had a lot to see! But by 3 pm we where ready to go to bed! I loved the walks to the mango trees and picking up the good ones for the next morning breakfast! The only negative was the road. The home is close to the road and in a curve. I would here a few honking and late night cars going through. About 2 am. That was the last night, Saturday. I am guessing it was late night dates and so on. Other then that, the bed was great, looks as though they put in a new oven. Oh , yes, could you please put a way we could get the banana bread. It was a great great for our trip to the seven pools!

Thank you for taking the time to give us a review on TripAdvisor/FlipKey. Reviews are the feedback we owners need to keep in touch. Yes the road is pretty close. I am sorry the late night cruisers made so much noise. Hopefully the cattle were quieter. Thank you for staying at Koali Ranch Cottage. We hope to see you again.

“Super Special Cozy Cottage”
Reviewed 3 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

people found this review helpful

Absolutely loved staring out at the grazing cows and the sea...for hours! Saw a few whales meandering by, loved the birds, changing skies and very comfortable deck. On the Hana Highway, yet out on the back deck you don't hear a car go by! Just far enough from town to feel a bit off the grid...yet, close enough to run to Hamoa Beach easily! Easy to for an early start out to O'heo Gulch! Shower is a tad rustic as are the floors, but the bed is very comfortable and...that deck will long be in my mind:). A very special spot...stayed 3 nights and plan a return next year:).

We just returned from a Maui & Molokai vacation. We were so happy that we stayed in Hana after the "Road to Hana." We stayed for 2 nights and felt this was just about right (probably could have stayed a night or two more and still really enjoyed it though).

We keep saying that this was our favorite place we stayed! The cottage was wonderful and had everything we needed...and then some. There were a lot of personal touches including fresh flowers, hand-made soap, banana bread and fresh fruit upon our arrival which really made it special. Directions easily led us to the cottage. The view from the lanai was AMAZING and we enjoyed meals, sunrise, and sunset along with the birds, cows, horses and geckos. The cottage was clean, the bed comfortable, cable TV and had all the kitchen utensils needed. If we are ever lucky enough to go back we will definitely return to Koali Ranch Cottage. Loved our stay. Everything exceeded our expectations! You won't regret staying here!

Thank you Wendy & Otto!

We loved staying at Koali Ranch. The view is spectacular. The house is comfortable and well equipped. We loved the visiting cows and the geckos. We had a magical time and a wonderful honeymoon. I can't wait come back again.

“Simply breathtaking views!!”

person found this review helpful

We stayed at Koali Ranch Cottage for three nights so that we could enjoy the surrounding area of Hana. We absolutely loved the place!!

It is a tiny, cozy cottage with everything you need to be comfortable. The jewel in its crown is the gorgeous view and huge covered deck which overlooks the ocean. The sunrises are spectacular and the cottage is quiet and secluded to allow for a nice relaxing place to unwind.

We will definitely rent this cottage again when we come back for another visit.

Totally satisfied,

“Relax on the Lanai and Gaze Across at the Big Island Volcanoes”
Reviewed 4 October 2012 for a stay in May 2010

person found this review helpful

This is a small cottage, in excellent condition, very well equipped, stocked with everything you will need, located just outside the National Park. It is impossible to adequately describe the view from the lanai. You are looking down across groves of trees and a pasture with a few cattle, some horses and inhabited as well by numerous bird species. Beyond is the blue Pacific, waves crashing against the shore, for 180 degrees as far as you can see in both directions. Directly across is the Big Island, volcanoes protruding above the clouds. It is a fantastic accomodation. Hope we can go back some day.
