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. Watching the ever moving and changing weather is so fascinating from such a vast perspective. 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...

We stayed in Ekena in mid-April for 3 nights. We had a hard time driving to Hana with all the curvy and narrow road but when we reached Ekena, it was so worth it! There is no cell reception here but our Garmin worked, it took us right on the gate. The wi fi works. The place is up on...

If you plan to visit Hana, and you definitely should, don't just do the to-and-fro road to Hana drive in one day. I honestly don't know how people do that. No, you'll want to stay there and savor its lushness, its tranquility, the feeling it gives you that you really have been transported to a different place and time. And...

Aloha Pier, and mahalo for this wonderful review. You obviously were undaunted by the rain and I am very happy that you enjoyed your time in Hana so much. Ekena was designed to let you experience the outdoors while indoors, so there are lots of glass doors and windows. You can see for miles and the view is always changing!...

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...
