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! :)

"This cottage was absolutely perfect: comfy, beautiful and with all the amenities you might need! We were coming from Oahu to escape the crowds and heat for a few days and thoroughly enjoyed every minute at the cabin and in the Kula area. The entrance is beautiful with lush flowers, landscaping and wildlife (we saw ring neck pheasants and Jackson chameleons while there). The wood inside and out of the cabin really adds to the warm and cozy feel of the place. The inside is very comfortable, especially with the nice bed, duvet and linens. We felt thoroughly rested and refreshed staying here. The cabin had everything we needed for cooking meals including an electric infrared grill on the lanai that we used for cooking some yummy Maui Cattle Company grass fed steaks! There were also a few good places to eat nearby that we enjoyed. Just relaxing at the cabin was a treat with plenty to entertain you if you chose to stay there all day including free wifi, some fun movies (we enjoyed watching Some Like It Hot upstairs in the loft) and board games (we enjoyed a couple of games of Scrabble). The views from the living area, lanai, loft and driveway were even better than the pictures! Sometimes we were in the clouds, but they always cleared out to reveal breathtaking views. The cabin is conveniently located to all of the Kula attractions including the ones we visited (lavender farms, Ocean Vodka Distillery, the winery, Surfing Goat Dairy, an organic farm and a couple of art galleries). We had spent a few days prior to our stay at the cabin backcountry hiking and camping at Haleakala National Park and finished our trip with a few days at this beautiful Chalet and it exceeded our expectations in every way! If we ever get the chance to come to Maui again we will definitely choose to stay here again! Thank you Wilma for your hospitality!"
