In March I surprised my husband with a trip to Hana for his birthday. We stayed for 3 nights in the Jasmine Suite at Ekena and just loved it. The accommodations were wonderful. The unit was beautifully decorated and had all the amenities we could wish for. While the Jasmine unit does not offer an oven, we had a great... More

Aloha Laurie, and Mahalo for your great review of both Jasmine and Sea Breeze. It was great to have you and Ken back here for another celebration and I hope there will be many more in the years to come now that you will be spending more time on Maui.

We were a group of 2 couples traveling to Maui last week of August, first week of September, 2014. We divided our trip between Hana and Kapalua, in order to best experience the two sides of the island. We rented the Ekena Sea Breeze suite for our stay in Hana. I cannot say enough about how beautiful and comfortable Ekena... More

Aloha dear guests, It is always such a treat to start my day reading such a lovely review. I am so happy that all of you enjoyed the Ekena property and Hana so much. The Sea Breeze home does work beautifully for 2 couples sharing the house because there is so much room, but still lots of privacy for both... More

Our first trip to Hawaii and glad we did our research - decided to stay in/near Hana and not just drive there and back in one day. We lucked into a few nights at the Jasmine unit and took both bedrooms since there were three of us (the flexibility in renting just one bedroom is very cool, too!). Staying several... More

We stayed in the 1 bed Jasmine unit, which was large, comfortable, attractively decorated and furnished and well equipped. The situation was both attractive and convenient, on a hillside a few miles of Hana and within easy reach of several great beaches and other attractions such as the seven sacred pools/Pipiwei trail Wai'anapanapa state park. The gardens were lovely and... More

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),...

We return to Hana regularly to visit the pieces of our hearts that reside there, and Ekena now holds a couple of pieces!
