Overview

Kihei Estate Rental Photos and Description

Tranquil Beach Front Luxury With Gated Entrance, 5 Private Suites & Fruit Grove

Blessed by kaunas, 'aloha aku' means the place that ‘gives love and kindness’. Formally known as Aikane Hale.

Even if your requested dates are unavailable please go to www.alohaaku.com to see the Calendar of all of our Suites.

AlohaAKU Inn & Suites is a tucked away, one-of-a-kind vacation gem. Our luxury oceanside estate has 4 beachfront one-bedroom suites and a garden view two-bedroom ohana. Each suite has a private entrance, seperate living room, full kitchen and is like having your own condo at the beach in Maui. This special place is hidden behind a private, double gated entrance, lined with 700 ft of lighted coconut palms that lure you into the feeling of leaving the world behind. But is still centrally placed in Kihei nearly all of the amenities you might desire.

Guests have described AlohaAKU as ‘the most tranquil and ultimate place for relaxation’! You can’t help but feel the peacefulness of Maui's beauty wash over you here. The beach in front of AlohaAKU is only lightly traveled. Sometimes it's like having your own private beach. Hidden beside the tallest mangrove forest in the state, you will be pleasantly greeted with an extravaganza of natural hawaiian beauty.

AlohaAKU lulls you into a wondrous state of being, yet is located in the ultimate location for access to the many conveniences in mid-kihei. And it’s well placed to be your base of operations to explore the rest of the maui island.

Just twenty minutes from the airport, we are within easy walking distance of nearby groceries, shopping, restaurants, bar-pubs, car rental, dive shops, and much, much more. When guests return to the property they say it ‘feels like home’. Some never leave the property during their visit, happy to just lounge around and suntan from their private lanai or on the beach out front!

Your hosts, Charlene (maui-girl) and Gary (g-kane), have upgraded all the suites to include air conditioning, ceiling fans, free high speed wi-fi, free designated on property parking, key codes for everything (no keys or key cards to worry about), flat screen hdtvs with DirecTv in the living room and in the separate bedrooms. Warm up a snack or make yourself a full meal in your suite's nicely outfitted full kitchen. In addition there is a gas barbeque on site nestled between some acacia palm trees overlooking the protected wetland pond.

We can’t wait to host you and see your happy faces. We hope that you will find that AlohaAKU has the intimacy, amenities, and ohana to be your favorite luxury getaway. Maui is considered one of top vacation destinations in the world and after staying at AlohaAKU we are confident that you will have your own special reasons why!

About Charlene and Gary

Aloha from Charlene and Gary.

A little about us.

Char was raised on Maui just a few miles up the beach from Aloha AKU and went to grade school and to St. Anthony’s High School on Maui. Her family also lives here on the island so she and they have seen a lot of changes on Maui over the years. After high school Char left for College at Santa Clara University and majored in TV Production and French. After College she moved the LA and began a carrier in the Entertainment Industry doing everything from modeling to acting and from Producing, Directing and Writing to finally running Production and Entertainment companies.

Ok, so she played Hollywood. Gary has also had a good life having lived in many parts of the country having followed a very successful career in High Tech. He has been a key contributor to Ethernet, Computer analyzed EKG systems, founded a start up Telecommunications product company in Silicon Valley, and ran a $70M per year high tech company in LA. He has always seen himself living on an island and meeting Char 20 years ago was just the ticket to get him to Maui.

So a few years ago this LA couple decided that the time had come to leave the Merry-go-round of their respective businesses and buy a place on Maui and “come home”. So here they are, living the “maui life” as active members of the local community and on many non-profit boards and are supporting many worthy causes. And they decided to create Aloha AKU Inn & Suites and offer a fun, laid back Maui beach experience to fun, laid back and interesting people.

Please join us and enjoy MAUI !

Perfect location, fantastic ammenities and delightful hosts

  • 5 of 5
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!

Owner's Response: Gary and I are thrilled that you enjoyed your special stay with us so much and we look forward to having you again. When we have happy repeat customers like you, it's a bonus for us because it becomes like having family that comes back to visit!!! Big Mahalo for such a rave review.

Romantic. Quiet. Beautiful. Comfortable. Doesn't get better

If we could offer 6 stars, we would! Char and Gary have created the ultimate romantic and relaxed destination. Why book an uncomfortable room in a giant highrise, when you can have luxury in a more private setting? Aloha Aku is the most beautiful site.

The view from your Lanai will be worth a million dollars - perfectly West facing for stunning Sunsets!! The soaking pool and hot tub is a perfect way to end your day after snorkeling or stand up paddle boarding.

The units are impeccably apportioned, completely private, and cannot be closer to the quiet beach. The owners provide free stand up paddle boards, beach cruser bikes, snorkel gear, beach towels, reef shoes, and body boards - we figure we saved over $400 for the week from rentals.

Aloha Aku is a beautiful site. The view from your Lanai will be worth a million dollars! The fresh fruit, juices, and pastries provided for breakfast are a nice touch.

This was the best vacation (actually honeymoon) we could have imagined and we are already planning our schedule to re-book.

You should book Aloha Aku too...just don't pick our week ;-)

Low Key Hidden Gem

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at AlohaAku was outstanding. We were very sad to leave. The condo and the location was absolutely perfect. Char was a great hostess. The condo had everything you could need such as sports equipment and amenities (continental breakfast, coffee, chairs, coolers, safe...) It's a very secure facility-no keys needed. All codes. Never have to take keys with you. Within walking distance to stores and many restaurants at all price levels. We will definitely come back. Please contact Char if at all hesitant. She will answer all questions and make this a great decision for your stay in Kihei.

Mahalo!!!-Hula Suite

  • 5 of 5
This property is great if you want a laid back, well-maintained, beautiful place to stay. The Hula Suite was a great place to retreat to after a day adventuring on Maui. Located in Kihei it was closer to more economic dining options than say Lahaina or Wailea. The beach is beautiful and as mentioned in other reviews, not very crowded. Char and Gary who on the property and live there as well where very prompt and responsive at resolving any requests or concerns guests may have. Their website is excellent for describing the property and there were no surprises upon arrival.

Fabulous rental in Kihei

  • 5 of 5
Great place right in the heart of Kihei but you would never know it. Private drive off of Kihei Road lands you into this quiet, private, gorgeous beach side condo perfect for whale watching and sunsets.

Plunge pools for fresh water rinsing after playing in sun and ocean all day. Private lanai just yards from the beach where we enjoyed breakfasts and candle light dinners.

Charlene and Gary took such good care of us and we loved our entrance off of the commons room where we helped ourselves to fresh banana, papaya, youguts, cereal and pastries a few mornings.

If you have overlooked staying in Kihei because of the crowds you wont' feel that way here. Nice beach walks along sparsely populated beaches and very short drives to Kihei's more popular beaches for body boarding and snorkeling.

We cannot wait to come back.

Great holiday - Coco Palm Suite

  • 5 of 5
Very private, beachfront property ideal for watching whales and sunsets. Well equiped kitchen with breakfast supplies available in the Common Room (yougurt, fruit, pastries/muffins, coffee/tea). Also things like peanut butter and cooking oil in the Common room refrigerator came in very handy - I suspect some of these items were left by other guests. We enjoyed the kayak and spotted many turtles while out paddling. Beachwalks were part of our daily routine but the beach was never crowded. You can use your computer on the lanai you want to have a working vacation. Just keep you binoculars ready in case of a whale sighting.
