"My wife and I spent two weeks in the Leeward Condo and enjoyed our stay. Our daughter lives nearby so location was our main reason for staying at Haiku Makai. Max and Tracey treat us more like friends than customers. Max brought by fresh bananas and citrus fruit almost daily. Buttercup is the official welcome "person" for the property. We are dog people so it was nice to have her greet us and be there occasionally at our door.
This was our second stay in the Leeward Condo. We found it to be comfortable. Other posters have talked about the geckos and you should be prepared to see the little guys once in a while. They are harmless but they can startle you so awareness is paramount. This condo is what you should expect for an upcountry rental. The facilities are dated but functional. The appliances work and the coffee is hot. Our only recommend would be to add an inexpensive dinner service for four and a few more cups and glasses. I did not mention this to Max or Tracey so it may well be .... all I had to do was ask. I give them the benefit of the doubt because I see them as trying hard to please their customers... trying hard to make new friends!
This is a quiet and peaceful place on a back road near Haiku. It is not in the hustle and bustle of touristy Maui. It is your get-away from that scene. It allows you to relax and enjoy the ocean view. Mahalo and Aloha!"

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! :)

"Highlight of our entire Hawaii vacation! Cannot put into words how beautiful and perfect this place is. Fresh fruit at your doorstep, magical experience of shower by moonlight, amazing views. Walked from the doorstep 1.5 miles to Haleakala park 1st ones there. Exactly what a"vacation" should be. Anya thought of everything. I hope life finds us with the opportunity to visit again."

"The accommodations were great and this place is as described. Andrew was a fantastic host and went way above and beyond our expectations to ensure we had a great trip and stay in Hana. We have rented many times over the years and the service we had from Andrew truly was second to none. We would highly recommend renting from them."
