The 2 bedroom, 2 bath Jasmine unit in which we stayed, was spacious, clean, and came with views beyond compare. We were met by Robyn who is both sweet and attentive. The landscaping on the property is as exquisite as an arboretum. You may even be lucky enough to stay while the horses are visiting. Robyn is VERY knowledgeable and... More

Ekena means Eden and it sure felt like we were staying in paradise while there. The immaculately groomed 8 acre property was filled with everything and more to delight the senses. The rainbow eucalyptus trees were so incredible with their many colors naturally occuring to create a rainbow pallet. Never have we experienced so many shades of green as we... More

Ekena is up on a hillside overlooking a valley with the ocean below. What a view. We stayed at the Jasmine suite. It has an open, island feel with a grand room that includes the kitchen, dining and living areas, then a separate bedroom, bathroom area. It is modern and well maintained. The grounds are beautiful. There is a big... More

Why go to the Hana area? It's tropical, green and fresh, has natural beauty, fewer people, less traffic, a slower pace. Lots to do; hiking, biking, beaches, birding (different from the 'dry' side of Maui; melodious laughing thrush, great frigate-bird, ruddy turnstone) If you want to be with people, and close to the night action (other than an owl calling),...

Aloha amazing bikers, and mahalo for your descriptive and appreciative review of the sights and sounds of Hana and of Ekena.

We return to Hana regularly to visit the pieces of our hearts that reside there, and Ekena now holds a couple of pieces! This property is outstanding, the view is spectacular, and the home is lovingly (and discreetly) cared for by the gracious Robin and Gaylord. We witnessed not only daily rainbows which originated on the property, and ended on... More

I don't even know where to begin on this: We stayed here a couple of years ago (have reservations to return this coming April), and I, the wife, chose the location.

This B&B (without breakfast) sits high above Hana on a hill above the small airport. We stayed in the Jasmine which is 1800 sq. ft. with 2 master suites.

We recently spent 3 nights at Ekena, in the Jasmine unit, and it totally surpassed our expectations! Everything just clicked: the incredible setting of the house, the wonderful and harmonious space and aesthetic layout of the unit, and the nice care takers.

If someone asked where they should stay in Hana, we would recommend Ekena in a heartbeat. I think that Hana (and the road to it) was the best part of our amazing trip to Maui, and staying at Ekena played a major role. It has everything and more we would want from a home away from home (in paradise yet).... More
