  • Just Fantastic

    "The cottage is just a beautiful place. In every way. Inside and out. Luxurious, not pretentious. The place is close enough to town to get things and far enough away from it to properly enjoy where you are. I thought I preferred vacation properties that were impersonal and owners that left me alone, until now. These owners are simply the nicest people and the most thoughtful hosts you'll ever meet. They've thought of everything. Everything. Great directions to arrive at the house, even after dark as was our case.They even called to make sure that we weren't lost. Available anytime you need them to answer questions or give advice or supply extra limes from one of their many fruit trees on property. Starfruit is a new favorite of mine. A couple of quiet easy beaches nearby and surfing beaches if that's your thing. Any beach equipment from fins to boogie boards to umbrellas to rattan mats to coolers for drinks and snacks. Surplus towels for muddy hikes. Fully stocked kitchen with a tremendous amount of snacks and convenient food. And then there's the view. I really don't want to ruin it by describing it. You just have to see it. I recommend you do. If you do, give Bev and David a hug from Kalin!"

  • Wonderfully peaceful!

    "It was my first trip to Hawai'i, and I wanted a nice, quiet place at which to recharge, and from which to explore other parts of Maui. I found this location through the VRBO website and was very pleased with my selection. It was an easy 25 minutes drive from Kahalui, and only 15 minutes from the small town of Paia and nice north-side beaches. The owner was very helpful on my first day in orienting me by phone, letting me know of a local grocery store in Paia and some surrounding attractions. The beaches were not busy, the water clear, with big waves (but not too big for swimming!), and some beaches are dedicated to surfing only. This location was close to the famous Mama's Fish House (I recommend booking restaurants via the Open Table app, or calling ahead, as there is always a waitlist otherwise), and an easy drive to other areas of the island. Kaanapali is only about 1 to 1.5 hours' drive from here. Very do-able on any day where it's raining in Haiku but not on the other side of the island. The property was well-kept, everything worked (plumbing, hair dryer, fridge, lights, etc), and it had the beginnings of a self-sustaining vegetable garden, and eco-friendly atmosphere. Each unit here (I think there were three guest suites, and one unit for the property manager) had its own parking space. The one-bedroom I rented was pleasantly decorated with colorful waves and fish. It fit nicely with the feel and energy of the island. And the little yurt was a good space in which to do yoga when I sorely needed some quiet, stretching time, surrounded by lots of light and a pleasant breeze. I didn't use the pool since I went to the beach each day, but it was nice to have nearby. I'd consider staying here again."

  • Marvelous!!!

    "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!!"

  • Upcountry Foodies

    "Excellent location for upcountry farm tours, drives to Haleakala, and meals at some quality restaurants. If Makawao is not on your list of restaurants try them out! Less crowded, more affordable and fabulous. No cookie cutter Maui in upcountry. Branch out - you will be glad you did. Our lodgings were newly remodeled and very comfortable. Mark was attentive and even let us check in early. There is a visiting kitty who makes herself at home if you welcome her. Very nice amenities and a 20 minute drive from the airport."
