Hana cottage description

The billion dollar view of the pastures and shore makes visitors exclaim "Wow" as they enter the dutch doors of this cozy cottage. On most days you can look across the ocean to the big island of Hawaii. You look across 70 acres of open pasture (with cattle and horses). Half of the people who view our website end up booking or wish they had.

In the winter you can see snow cover on the top of the 13,000 foot Mauna Kea on the Big Island. Calves frolic under the not so watchful care of mommas grazing on the grass. If you are here in the winter, you can often see and hear whales. The first you hear is a thunk, like a car door closing. But you wonder why is there a car out in the pature. Then you look out to the sea and see a big splash. Now you know where to look for further breaches or tail slaps.

This is a place to relax. The tensions ease as you drive leisurely through Hana Town, then as you spot the chaise on the cottage lanai, Hana Paralysis set in.

For the more adventurous, there are hikes, beaches, cliffs, surfing and more. If all your hiking, swimming and snorkeling tighten you, a rejuvenating massage is only minutes away by phone.

Some guests walk a tenth of a mile to a cool mountain pool fed by a burbling waterfall. More rigorous swimming may be found at the National Park where there are many pools more than 30 feet deep and jumping cliffs more from 1 to 100 feet high. Other beach swimming spots include Hamoa Beach, Waiaoka Pond, Koki Beach and the beach on Hana Bay

People have good words about Koali Ranch Cottage:

We thought this would be our last time to Hana, but after staying in the Koali Ranch Cottage, we will be back. We loved the view, the peacefulness, the cleanliness and even the crazy noisy bulls & cows! It was a great experience. 2/24/9

..in 2004 we said “wow!” When we opened the door this trip we said, “its great to be back” … 6/5/7

This being our 5th or 6th trip to this house…But merely walk through the front door, passionately kiss my wife and allow it to blow through me, as and like the breeze rolling up up the pasure to my heart. I am here...Koali is in us and will never leave. 9/14/7
…this little slice of paradise…What a great location for exploring this side of the island! 5/18/7

…Looking forward to coming back when I need to recharge my batteries. 5/12/7

11/12/7 This place is all that and a bag of chips…appreciation to the owners for providing such an amazing space and to God for creating Heaven on Earth. This is 4th time to Hana, 1st time here. Usually I can’t wait to get out door in the morning to explore. Not here. Everything I need is just outside, a place to relax and rejuvenate!… 11/12/7

"...We were both astonished by the great view from the lanai - we knew there was an ocean, but this! My husband walked out on the porch, repeating, "Magnificent!" 11/4/2006

"Walking thru the door of this cottage, I feel I'd entered a dream house..." 9/1/2004

6/13/7 …Never realized how peaceful and fun it would be to watch the cows. We will definitely recommend this place and hope to be back again… 6/13/7

A lot of testimonials. Ever since the owner's parents built the cottage in 1956, people from all over the world have been making nice comments. To be sure, there have been some adverse comments, but they come from people who might do better over in the glitzy other side of Maui, Waikiki, or even Las Vegas.

                  Gliding, swim in mountain pools just a 5 minute walk away. 20 minutes away from the Haleakala National Park named for tourists as the Seven Sacred Pools. Most people nap on the lanai and wake up in time to spot the shining telescope dome

                  atop Mauna Kea on the island of Hawaii. Then they enjoy the swirling colors as the sun sets. You don't see the sun go into the ocean, but if it rains you can often see rainbows over the ocean).

                   

                  Manager info

                  Year Purchased: 1956

                  Why Hana:
                  Koali Ranch Cottage started out as a vacant lot set aside for a school house. In 1955, the Territory of Hawaii decided that it did not need a school there and auctioned it. My parents were successful bidders. The Territory insisted that the house be erected within a year. The cottage was designed by local architect John Tatum under island famous Val Ossipoff.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                  Stressed out people come here to unwind. If you don't want to unwind, you probably should stay on the glitsy side of Maui, Kaanapali, Wailea, Kihei. In fact, people who live on that side come to Koali Ranch Cottage just to calm down.
