Overview

About the property

Panoramic ocean view, studio cottage, 1 queen bed, full kitchen, BBQ, 1 bath

The view of the ocean and coastal pasture makes guests exclaim "wow" as they enter the dutch doors of this cozy cottage.

This is a place to relax. You can watch the whales play and hear them sing at night. The cows lazily graze through the pasture below with the Big Island of Hawaii off in the distance. Sunrises and sunsets offer stunning colors across the sky. You can also appreciate the views from the comfort of your bed. We have stocked the cottage with all of the amenities you will need to make you feel right at home.

For the more adventurous, there are hikes, beaches, and waterfalls nearby. Haleakala National Park (7 Sacred Pools) is located 4 miles south of the cottage and Hamoa Beach is 3.5 miles north. A small fresh water pond is only 1/4 mile down the road.

About Michelle Horen

We do accept one and two night stays less than 30 days prior to arrival. Please inquire for rates and availability.

Michelle Horen purchased this studio in 1956

Why Michelle Horen chose Hāna

Many of our guests return annually. They all say the photos don't do the place justice. Everyone declares the view spectacular. There are 70 acres of government preserve between the cottage and the shore. Even so, when the whales are here (Dec/Apr), you can hear them splash and see them jump. Cattle and a few horses abound in the preserve you can watch their calves frolic. A thoroughly restful place. The serene views and private nature of the cottage offer a sanctuary of kinds for guests.

What makes this studio unique

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 working with island famous Val Ossipoff.

A True Gem in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is a true gem. We love the Hana area and coastline. While Hana has gained popularity and visits in past years, this cottage offers beautiful retreat from the crowds. Hana still feels remote here. Inside open plan and back deck spaces give wonderful feel of connection to the pasture, bluffs and ocean overlook. We stayed here six years ago, and returned 2018. Hope it will not be six years for our next Maui trip; will certainly return to Koali Ranch Cottage. Managers Michelle and Wendy are extremely helpful. Also was a pleasure to meet the owner Chuck Gray.

Owner's Response: Indeed! A special review; thank you. We try hard to keep you happy and the weather has not been helpful. We agree and hope that it won't be another six years before you are able to return to Hana.

We loved our stay in the cottage! The view is amazing and we loved the family of cows that were our neighbors for our time there! We hope to return some day soon!!!

A True Love Shack on the Hana Coast

  • 5 of 5

Wow what a location!

The Locals (cows) greeted us on arrival

The Local Humans were awesome also

The Views and flora and Fauna is almost overwhelming

Quiet private and close to Town but I would recommend being self contained after nightfall

Close to National Park and Hana Bay

Gotta go to Koki Beach and get some Huli Huli Chicken

Thank you all for sharing this once in a lifetime experience

Delightful and peaceful oasis

  • 5 of 5

A sweet little spot with thoughtful touches like condiments in the fridge, a cooler and beach chairs, puzzles, books and games. As the last stop on our honeymoon tour of Maui, it was the perfect spot to relax and soak in the calm vibe. The few outdoor harmless Hawaiian garden spiders, the multitudes of adorable geckos and the meandering cows all kept us entertained for hours. It was the longest I've ever seen my husband "do nothing", a much needed rest! Thank you!

Owner's Response: Wow! What a review! It means so much to me, Michelle and our staff to hear such good comments. Our staff work hard to make sure that you will have a good experience. Be careful of those spiders, the little crabby kind leave me itching for a week. Aloha, Chuck

Worth going to Maui just for this rental

  • 5 of 5

We had the most wonderful time here. From the moment we arrived we felt welcomed. The rental was breathtaking! Especially the patio. We are early risers on vacation and generally don’t spend much time at rentals- here it was different. Although we woke each morning to watch the sunrise, we lingered at the koali ranch until noon some days, reading, whale watching, doing yoga on the deck, and just enjoying to calming sounds of birds/waves. Can’t wait to return :)

Beautiful ocean view

  • 4 of 5

Nice and secluded. We spent our time on the deck overlooking the ocean. Nice larger size shower. Nice ocean breeze. If you are looking for a relaxing outdoor space - this is for you.

Owner's Response: Great review! Thank you. We are glad you like the shower; that is a feature of Lois Gray and Val Ossipoff, architect. Please come again. Aloha, Chuck Gray

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).
