A little piece of heaven--absolutely wonderful place to stay!
"My friends and I were on a girls' getaway and spent 4 nights in the Jasmine suite. The house is very clean and well-stocked with kitchen items. We enjoyed using the provided beach chairs, boogie boards, and beach towels. The washer & dryer was nice to have too, and laundry soap was provided.
The views from Ekena are amazing. It was tempting to sit on the porch all day long! However, we decided to enjoy exploring Hana: Oheo Gulch (take the 4 mile hike along the Pipiwai Trail!), Red Sand Beach, Black Sand Beach, Koki Beach, Hana Farms stand (banana bread is the best around--we recommend the pineapple banana bread!), Coconut Glen's (great ice-cream, strange service), Troy's plate lunch (near Koki Beach), etc. So much to see, do, and eat! :) If you want fresh chicken or fish, be sure to get it on your way to Hana. The local markets in Hana only had fresh beef. We were able to purchase fish from a local fisherman during our stay and it was delicious.
Back to Ekena, Jasmine suite: There are two rooms: one had a king bed, and one had 2 twin beds (that can be made into a king if you desire). All the beds were comfortable. There's no a/c, but there are fans all around the house & plenty of windows and slider doors to keep things at a comfortable temperature. The Wi-Fi worked really well, but there's no cell phone reception. We didn't mind a bit! If you do stay at Ekena, be sure to wake up to watch the sunrise at least once while you're there. It's beautiful.
The location is great: about 2 minute drive to the town of Hana and about a 35-40 minute drive to Oheo Gulch. So nice to be able to get to the gulch earlier than all the day-trippers!
We loved our stay at Ekena and highly recommend it. Robin was incredibly helpful with our questions and so pleasant to talk to. It was a pleasure meeting her and Gaylord. Mahalo for everything! :)

"We spent 2 nights at Tutu's house at the end of our trip to Maui, so we could take our time enjoying the road to Hana in one day and still have another day to enjoy some of the other activities in & close to Hana (Pipiwai trail, beaches & Wainapanapa park).
This is a very old house, so we weren't expecting it to be "modern" but it was very spacious, clean, had everything we needed and is on a beautiful property.
The kitchen was well equipped and it was a very short walk to Hana bay beach.
Our kids (9&11) slept on the pull out couch, and although I didn't find it comfortable, they didn't mind it. We loved hearing the waves through the window of our bedroom."

"No detail was spared. This property is a renovated labor of love. It is old Hawaii with all the amenities updated. The proximity to Venus Pool and gorgeous Hamoa Beach are short walks in wonder away. It will be our home in Heavenly Hana on future trips. Mahalo & Aloha, Steven and Margot Rego

"When we pulled up we thought we were at the wrong place, from the road it looked like the entire place was under construction, but it turns out the second floor is under construction and this did not impact our stay at all. The home has beautiful large windows spanning the width and overlooking the ocean. Listening to the waves crashing is a real joy. The home is simple, but appears to be very clean. They have all of the necessities as far as cooking supplies, linens, towels, etc., and a few extra touches. I noticed some bugs in the kitchen. I think they are called invisible bugs? They seem to be common in Maui. The owner and his wife do not use any insect repellent which is probably a good thing considering the close proximity to the ocean. I think the bugs are basically harmless. In summary the place is not fancy, but it is very clean and quite suitable overlooking the ocean and within walking distance of the beach. This is a fine place to stay during your Hana adventure."
