For us, the most enjoyable time of our stay on Maui were the days spent at Ekena in Hana. And while there isn't much to the town, that's what makes days here so special - five days and four nights were too few! Ekena offers thoughtful property hosts, comfortable accommodations, magnificent views and all the hiking and privacy one could...

This great house, a short 10-15 minute drive to the 'center' of Hana only rents to one party at a time...so you will have no one above you or below you...unless you bring friends and rent it all! (The exception may be during February or March when the owner visits). The warm, kind, talented and interesting caretakers are quiet neighbors...

Wonderful place to stay so you can enjoy and see more of the area. Spent 5 days here and could have stayed more. So relaxing and the grounds were beutiful. Had fresh bananas off the vine every morning and the fruit at the stands close by was outstanding! I loved all the wilderness sounds in the morning while enjoying a...

Great location to enjoy all that Hana has to offer. The facilities are very comfortable and well stocked with all essentials for cooking, beach and relaxation. The grand room has a panorama of windows to enjoy the beautiful surroundings. Robin is very friendly and gracious.

We stayed in Maui over New Year for our honeymoon and we wanted to avoid the super touristy beaches so we decided to stay in Hana. Finding Ekena was such a jem! We booked the Jasmine suite since there were only 2 of us, and luckily Robin only rents Ekena to one group regardless of which suite you book. The...

This place is really out of the way from the other places to stay in Hana. It is located at the end of a side road off the Hana Highway before you hit town. You will see a large wooden building as you drive up a steep drive way. The place is very large and there are 2 units for...

Beautiful setting up on a hill...a garden vista so quiet and secluded with a fantastic ocean view. The loudest sounds are the birds and soft surf. The nights wraps around you with peaceful solitude. Ekena is the perfect base to explore Hana and beyond. Robin and Gaylord are the perfect hosts. Take time to see the art/gift shop in Hana....

Our last stop in Maui, after spending a few nights in other places on the west side of the island, was Ekena in Hana, and it could not have been more perfect. We stayed there for three nights, enjoying every sunrise and sunset, the amazing view, cooking in the well stocked kitchen, and exploring every inch of Hana and its...

We had the pleasure of calling Ekena home for 4 days in August 2016. It was a fabulous home stocked with beach gear, cooking equipment, and privacy. We spent most of our time cooking meals on the barbeque and relaxing on the lanai, which happens to wrap around the entire backside of the home. I had the pleasure of enjoying...

Aloha Nicole, We really appreciate your wonderfully descriptive review, including the magic that can happen on our lovely wraparound deck.

We hope that you and your friends can return for more time on the deck and revisiting the places you enjoy around Hana. Mahalo, Robin

Hana has a piece of our hearts and we can't wait to come back! When we do, we'll stay here at Ekena and it will definitely be for more than 3 days (their minimum length of stay). The rooms were clean, the hospitality was top notch, and the views were breathtaking. Not that Hana is an overly bustling town but...
