Overview

Hana House Rental Photos and Description

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.

A Hana attraction unto itself

  • 5 of 5

While Hana is typically known for its multicolored beaches, its twisty road and jungle scenery, Ekena is just as much an attraction as any of these things. It is a gem of a house set high on a hill just outside of Hana, and its main features include a huge deck with unsurpassed views of the Hana jungle and ocean beyond, unbelievable grounds with endless tropical plants and trees (including a particularly beautiful patch of Rainbow Eucalyptus trees), and two large bedroom suites on opposite ends of the house for total privacy between groups or couples. I found every moment in Ekena to be immensely peaceful and relaxing, and the ever-changing weather - including spontaneous torrential rainfall - just added to the charm. One of the highlights was sipping a glass of wine on a crystal clear night out on the patio while watching the moon rise behind a group of the trees to the east. It was a magical moment in a magical place.

While staying in Hana we visited Hamoa Beach (a beautiful jungle beach), Luana Spa (great massages in a traditional Hale on a cliff) and 'Ohe'o Gulch (a tourist trap, but a must-see nonetheless), kayaked and snorkeled in a coral reef in Hana Bay, and had numerous wonderful home cooked meals thanks to Ekena's full kitchen and dining area. I didn't get the chance to meet Gaylord, but I talked with his wife Robyn several times and she was great to chat with about the house, their history and Hana in general. You get the distinct feeling at Ekena, and in Hana in general, that life is much simpler, slower, and in many ways more fulfilling than it is in the congested big cities and suburbs where most of us come from.

There were only a couple VERY minor negatives, and I want to stress that these did not detract from our experience at all, but I thought they would be helpful to note for future guests. Because you're high on a hill, sound travels farther than you might think, and some nights we heard several dogs barking rather energetically from down below. It really wasn't a big deal but it did jolt us out of our "Ekena trance" from time to time. Also, be prepared for possible insects like cockroaches and spiders in the rooms. This is to be expected in a jungle habitat so we were prepared heading in, but that didn't stop our teenage daughter from having a mini heart attack when she saw a giant (but harmless) cane spider in her room one night. Again, nothing worth truly worrying about.

Ekena is a truly incredible place and highly recommended.

Owner's Response: Aloha Steve and thank you for such a glowing review of your time at Ekena and in Hana. You provided lots of good suggestions for others that will follow and I am happy that the house worked so well for your family. Ekena is in such a blissfully quiet part of Hana that you do, indeed, hear sounds that you might nor be able to hear in most other places on the planet. This does include the occasional howling dog, but also includes the sounds of the wind and rain blowing thru the forest that borders us, as well as the delightful sounds of a variety of birds that live around here. We are sorry that your daughter saw a large, but totally harmless, cane spider. It is a rare occurrence as they prefer to be outdoors and they are terrified of humans. We do try hard to keep them and all other bugs outdoors, but they do sometimes find there way in. There are bug traps in out-of-the-way places and we are very diligent about trying to control them. Hana is the tropical, rainforest part of Maui and bugs are a part of that environment. Rest assured that we do all that we can to keep Ekena as free of bugs as possible. Thanks again for choosing to stay with us and I am so happy that you enjoyed your time here so much. I enjoyed meeting your family and friend. aloha, Robin

Heaven in Hana

  • 5 of 5

Our first three night on Maui we spent here and we could not have been happier. This is a beautiful little spot in the perfect location in Hana. Robin was the perfect host who greeted us when we pulled in the driveway after a nerve racking drive to Han at night in the rain. The accommodations were wonderful. The views were wonderful to wake up to. More room than we knew what to do with. I should note that beach chairs, boogie boards and ponchos are available with the room. We grilled some steaks one night on the grill since dining is limited in Hana. If headed to Hana again, would not hesitate to stay here again.

Owner's Response: Aloha Steve, and many thanks for the 5 star review and for taking the time to share your thoughts about Ekena and Hana with others. We love Hana so much that it pleases us greatly when guests enjoy themselves so much while they are here. I do hope you can return someday and enjoy more of this beautiful and authentic part of Maui.

Definitely coming back

  • 5 of 5

After 3 days at a resort in Wailea, we spent 4 utterly relaxing days at Ekena (Jasmine) and in Hana, enjoying Koki beach in the morning and cooking island style dinners in the afternoons from a copy of "What Maui Likes to Eat" that we picked up in Wailea. The kitchen has pretty much everything you need equipment-wise - graters, garlic presses, etc. The views from the deck were gorgeous - you could spend all day there just sipping wine and enjoying the ocean breeze, the rainbows, and, if you get up at night, the stars, which were pretty amazing. Hana town, what there is of it, is about 5-10 minutes away, and it's easy to pop over to Travaasa for a drink if you want, or go island style at Koki's huli-huli chicken, A's Thai food, or any of several other small roadside joints. Robin was helpful and inconspicuous. You can get basics and beer/wine locally, but its a vacation home, not a hotel or B&B, so bring your own food and spices from the Safeway and Ah Fooks Asian grocery near the airport in Kahului. Very good beach chairs and boogie boards come with the place, as does a washer/dryer, so you really don't need to bring much else. Next time we'll bag the resorts, which could be anywhere, and just come back here. (PS. The "I'd recommend this property for" list doesn't have the right category. I'd recommend this property for experienced travelers who enjoy a laid back, relaxing escape.)

Owner's Response: Aloha Barry, and Mahalo for the lovely review of the Jasmine home at Ekena. We appreciate you taking the time to write this for us. I miss the delightful smells coming from your kitchen as you experimented with your new Maui cookbook. It all smelled delicious! Your review has great tips for future Hana guests and they are all included in the Activities List that we provide our guests while they are here. We hope you and Pam can return in the near future to enjoy more time on the deck enjoying the ever-changing gorgeous views and melodious birdsong. It was our pleasure to have you visit. mahalo, Robin and Gaylord

Don't drive through Hana, stay in Hana!

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful stay! A beautiful home, fantastic views and very convenient to all the sites in the area.

Our stay was in the main upstairs part of the home.

We were traveling with another couple and the home was laid out perfect for two couples. There is a master bedroom at each end of the house with a large kitchen and living room in between. Both have exquisite large bathrooms. Ours was well stocked with fresh linens and had a large soaking tub and separate shower. The kitchen was great for cooking and well equipped with a separate dining area. The living room was well appointed and comfortable. But the highlight was the deck with panoramic views of the hills and the ocean and if your lucky enough to catch a clear night, it's a great location for star viewing with little ambient light. Nothing in the area that we looked at or saw during our visit comes close to this place. Our hostess Robin was a wonderful person and very helpful in advice of what to do in the area, and even though the proprietors live on the property, it was never an issue, we always felt alone and private.

With so much to see and being such a beautiful area, I highly recommend you pass on the one day trip up and down the Hana Highway and stay in Hana, it's well worth it!

Paradise Found

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed three nights in the exquisite Jasmine suite and with our delightful hosts Gaylord and Robin. Hana is very beautiful and Gaylord clued us in on some of the not to be missed places. Sitting on the wrap around deck listening to the birds and enjoying the lush tropical flora was amazing. Don't miss the unique rainbow colored eucalyptus... As well as the orchids attached to the trees. What a lovely paradise and an outstanding property.
