My husband and I have been lucky enough to have travelled to Maui countless times over the last few decades. Never before have we so enjoyed our accommodations as we did the AloAku. I almost hesitate to give the review it deserves for fear of blowing our cover-If everyone knows how great it is we might not be able to get in! First of all, the location could not be more perfect. You're in the middle of Kihei, walking distance to groceries, restaurants and shopping BUT far enough away from the road to feel like you're in the middle of nowhere. The mangrove forest helped to create such a charming atmosphere-Just beautiful. Our view was second to none-Straight across beautiful, green lawn to the (mostly deserted) beach. Priceless sunsets were enjoyed from the lanai every night. If all this isn't enough, ours hosts-Gary and Char-have thought of everything visitors may need. We took advantage of the paddle boards, bikes, beach gear, ice chests and more. They even lent us furniture to entertain friends and family while we were there. Perfect! Needless to say, AlohaAku was the best place we've ever stayed on Maui. We hope to be there again soon!
