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! :)

"Nous avons passé une semaine et nous avons vraiment aimé. Max nous a accueilli avec chaleur et fait visiter son verger. Nous mangions les fruits de celui-ci et nous avons adoré les lilikois ou fruits de la passion. La décoration est un peu défraichie mais il y a tout le nécessaire et le grand bonheur est de déjeuner sur le lanai face à l'océan ce que nous faisions tous les matin. L'endroit est extrêmement calme mais il faut absolument une voiture. Nous avions une gentille famille de geckos au plafond mais cela fait partie du paysage à Hawaii et ils ont leur utilité. Pas gênant du tout. Nous y retournerions sans hésitation, le rapport qualité/prix est bon."

"just a note to say that Aloha Cottage exceeded our expectations! We were very happy with it, especially the privacy, peacefulness and thought that went into this place.
Thanks for making everything run smoothly"
