Koali Ranch was the best part of our honeymoon.. its worth every bit of the drive from Kahului to Hana. We started driving off from Kahului at about 4pm but luckily we reached the cottage at 7pm and passed most of the windy roads before sunset. It was not easy to find really.. as the GPS doesn't recognise the full address given,you will have to rely on the instructions given by the hosts to get to your destination. It's about 5miles away from Hana town where food , gift shops and a general store is available. Eating out can be expensive but luckily the cottage has everything you need to cook except the food. There is also a dvd player , cd player, flat screen tv and a selection of books including travel guides for those who have not planned enough. You'll wake up to cows eating grass and waves splashing against the rocks. The view here is picture perfect at any time of the day. At night you'll get lotsa insects on the lanai, if you really hate beetles then this might not be the place for u.

Hamoa beach, Waianapanapa state park, Kipahulu are all within 30min drive from the cottage. I will suggest to stay at least 3 nights to enjoy the surronding this place has got to offer. Stock up essentials before you head to Hana, Hasagewa General Store only sells beef and a small selection of vegs.. but you can get canned food, drinks, ice cream, toiletries readily from there. I will definitely stay there again if i have the chance.

This was our third overnight stay in Hana and by far the best. It was so quiet and serene and very comfortable.

Liked least: The 'boom box' kept skipping or turning off when you walked across the room without tiptoeing.

“Koali Ranch Cottage is an ideal Hana area rental for two people.”

We have stayed in a number of rental properties in Hana over the past ten years or so, and this is by far our favorite. As soon as we stepped out onto the deck with the sweeping view of the peaceful pasture and the ocean beyond, we were hooked. I could have just sat and relaxed with a good book and a glass of wine. And the sunrise, with the light at a perfect angle on the green grass of the pasture?...WOW!... Got some great pictures! But the location is perfect for a trip to Kipahulu or the wonderful beaches near Hana, Hamoa Beach and the Red Sand Beach. It is well equipped with a complete kitchen, wonderful tiled shower, and even a flat screen TV with
many channels. We will definitely be back, next time hopefully for more than three nights. We just loved it .

Thankfully we decided to spend two nights in Hana instead of simply doing the drive there and turning around to head back to more populated parts of the island.

We did have a bit of an issue finding the property (we ended up going to the residence just past the cottage), but once we found it, we were blown away by the view. The second you walk in, you will be greeted by a sweeping view of the coast and farm. Yes, it is as good as it gets.

Overall we found it to be very clean, a nicely stocked kitchen, and a wonderful place to enjoy either a meal or drink. Two nights is the minimum you should consider doing -- four probably would have been perfect.

Thanks for sharing this piece of heaven with us!

We overnighted in Hana from Kihei and stayed at this cute little cottage for one night. It was homey and clean and perfect. Would highly recommend.
