There are two environments on Maui. Th hustle and bustle of the West Side and the regression from the 21st century to the tranquil and laid back life of the East Side. Hana is not for everyone. If you need shopping, night life, traffic congestion (other than the Hana Highway), and an unban lifestyle similar to most tourist destinations, Ekena...

My sister and I stayed in the 2 bedroom Jasmine suite of this home. The bedrooms are at each end of the unit, separated by an expansive living area so lots of privacy for sleeping. The lanai is huge and has higher up views of the ocean. A very quiet, very restful place to start our Maui vacation. We landed...

Hi Carol Ann, and I do hope you can make it back to Ekena someday soon. I am so happy that you stayed in Hana this time, rather than a hectic day of driving, with not nearly enough time to explore this magnificent area. Thank you so much for taking the time to give us such a positive review and...

We were absolutely smitten with this home and property. You won't believe the beauty of this home and it's peaceful surroundings; inside and out. It is spacious, gorgeous, comfortable and very well appointed. The quiet and solitude of the mountain were very healing and spiritual. Rain showers were wonderful and provided Rainbows like none other, the wildlife and flora are...

My husband and I stayed 3 nights at Jasmine Ekena and absolutely loved it. It was spacious, clean and the view from the back deck / Lanai is AMAZING. The gardens at the property are beautiful and the local wildlife was a joy to watch. We didn't once watch TV. The information that Robin provided for us on Hana's local...

We chose Hana as a place to elope and start our honeymoon. Ekena is a lovely, immaculate secluded property. Stunning view and very comfortable. We wouldn't change anything. Hana itself is the perfect getaway- we plan on coming again.

Aloha Randall and Monique, It was such fun to see you heading out for your oceanfront wedding and I am happy that it all came together so beautifully for you.

Lovely views, big lanai, bbq, no other visitors unless you want two units. Great hosts. Good kitchen. One or two bedrooms in each unit. Bring groceries from paia health food store. Go to Hamoa beach every day etc so much better than a hotel. Watch the sunrise from the lanai. I've been here three times and will go again.

My friends and I stayed 4 nights in the Jasmine suite, and loved every minute. Robin and Gaylord were so friendly & helpful, yet not intrusive at all. We appreciated being able to ask their advice about our daily plans. They have two units to rent, but only rent one at a time, ensuring a peaceful vacation. The setting is...

The views from the home are priceless. There's nothing like staying at Ekena - the comfort, the casual luxuries, the landscaping - truly home away from home in the middle of nature & paradise. The soft sounds of the rainforest, the sunset views of Haleakala & the break of dawn on the blue pacific....seems surreal, yet it was all there...

We just spent 16 days on Maui. We split our time between Hana and Lahaina...and it was like visiting two different islands! When we were looking for rentals on Maui we saw Ekena first and booked it immediately, then booked the rest of our holiday around it. Nestled high, high, on a mountain side amongst the lush rain forest trees...
