About the property

House, 1 Bedroom or 2 Bedroom, (Sleeps 2-4)

Discover paradise in Heavenly Hana, Maui, and surround yourself with the most breathtaking views in all of Hana.

Ekena means Eden in Hawaiian. This tropical paradise is perched high on a hill on nine acres of private property with 360 degree views of ocean, sky, coast and the lush, green hills of Hana, Maui. Enjoy all the natural beauty that Hana has to offer from the comfort of a beautiful home that is impeccably maintained.

The views are vast and ever-changing. You can watch whales in season, rain showers blowing by leaving brilliant rainbows in their wake, and listen to the songs of rare birds that enjoy our fruit trees. The grounds are a tropical delight of exotic flowers and delicious papaya, banana, avocado, guava, and macadamia nut trees. We invite you to our beautiful paradise!

Ekena offers two spacious accommodations, Jasmine and Sea Breeze. These comfortable suites have the flexibility of accommodating from one to six guests. To maintain the privacy and peacefulness of Ekena, we rent to only one party at a time.

These beautiful and comfortable suites have everything you need for a delightful and refreshing vacation. All rooms in this home take advantage of the awesome ocean and coastal views. The spacious living rooms are surrounded by sliding glass doors that open onto private decks. There are two bedrooms with king or twin beds and each has its own full bath. The kitchen is large and fully-equipped.

Unique jungle setting

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of staying in this beautiful location for 3 nights in early Jan with another couple and it was everything we could ask for! Seeing pictures is one thing but when you set foot inside for the first time or on the wrap around deck, the quiet serenity takes your breath away. Being two couples, the privacy of the two bedrooms being located on far either side was great, and separated but a spacious living and dining area. Cooking there was so enjoyable. Just keep in mind there is a stove top, toaster oven and microwave but no oven. Also there is a small bbq outside. Having your morning coffee outside while listening to the various birds is unlike anything else. Thank you for a lovely stay!

Owner's Response: Aloha Nisreen, and thanks for taking the time to send in such a great review. I recall how happy and excited you were when you drove up the driveway and saw Ekena. And that was even before you saw the gorgeous expansive view! It was fun to have you and your friends here and I hope you can return someday. Mahalo, Robin

Ekena will absolutely blow you away. We have stayed in Hana before, so we know the area quite well, but we did not know about Ekena, I am so glad that we found it! The views, the setting, the gardens, the peacefulness, the song of the birds and, to top it all off, the absolutely superb property. Great architecture and immaculately maintained, with everything that you need for a great stay. Robin and Gaylord are most graceful, friendly and helpful hosts. We were only able to stay for five days this time - WAAYY too short. We will be back soon for a longer stay!!

A lush paradise with an unparalleled view

  • 5 of 5

It rained, if not poured, every day of our 5-day stay in Hana at Ekena, and it was still perfect. You walk into the house and right away the 180 degree view takes your breath away. Watching thunderstorms, countless rainbows, and the occasional sunrise and sunset from the main room was such a pleasure. And Hana itself, which is so close to Ekena, is a tranquil little town with some beautiful sights and hikes nearby. If you really want to take a few days to feel like you've disappeared from the real world and are floating in a tropical bubble, then you've got to stay at Ekena. The bedrooms are comfortable, the kitchen well-stocked, the manager so friendly. I really look forward to returning.

Owner's Response: Alpha Pier, and mahalo for writing us such a wonderful review, in spite of the wet weather you experienced while you were in Hana. I am thankful that you embraced it, rather than let it keep you from enjoying this beautiful part of Maui. Our rain is rarely very cold, so with a light rain jacket you can still get out and enjoy all there is to see and do. Because the house has so many floor to ceiling glass doors and windows, it does provide a great place to watch the weather for miles in all directions. It was a pleasure to have you and Francesca here and please do come back and see us again. mahalo, Robin

The Ultimate Retreat

  • 5 of 5

The mountain and ocean views are excellent. If you're looking for a quiet retreat, this is the place to relax and enjoy the beauty of nature. Being so close to Hana's attraction is worth the price of the stay. One could sit on the spacious deck for hours without a care in the world. This is the place to unplug from the typical tourist resort type of stay. Load up your snacks and groceries in a cooler for the multi hour drive to Hana because you can't buy the simplest of items in Hana. The food trucks in Hana are wonderful. Braddah Hutts BBQ has great plate lunches. Ae's thai kitchen is simply amazing. The Barefoot Cafe has good and affordable breakfasts. There main restaurant in Hana across from the green colored Hasegawa general store has very good food but it's overpriced. Robin was out of town when I stayed but I really enjoyed the hospitality which Gaylord extended, he's a super nice man! The black sand beach is a 5 min drive away and the famed red sand beach is about a 10-15 min drive from Ekena. Great property, great staff, Mahola for a wonderful stay!

A little piece of heaven--absolutely wonderful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

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! :)
