About the property

Bedrooms 1, Bathrooms 1, Sleeps 4

The Bamboo Suite takes you into the lush and green forest of Maui. Like all the Aloha Aku Suites, it offers the amenities and the location to make your stay enjoyable and memorable. Drop your bags, put on some Hawaiian music, and kick-back and begin your amazing stay. Pull open the glass slider and step onto your private lanai. Sit down and enjoy the ocean view across the beautiful grassy area or maybe grab a glass of wine and head down toward the beach for a sunset experience. Maui is calling you.

In Suite you can catch-up on your favorite sports team on the HD-LCD TV via DirecTV. It's your vacay and you should just have it "your way". Like all guests at Aloha Aky you can enjoy the included continental breakfast in your room anytime of day or night and you have access to lots of land and water-sports amenities to make your stay on the property beyond relaxing.

Come take a look at the Video and Picture Gallery of our Beachfront Suites. Each Beachfront Suite has a King bed will pillow top in the private bedroom and private bath area, a separate living room, a fully loaded kitchen and covered private lanai. This is the Bamboo Suite.

AlohaAKU Inn & Suites is a tucked away, one-of-a-kind vacation gem. Our luxury Beachfront estate has 4 beachfront one-bedroom suites and a garden view two-bedroom 'ohana (family suite). Each suite has a private entrance and is like having your own condo at the beach on Maui. This one-of-a-kind property 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. Yet it is still centrally placed in Kihei nearly all of the amenities you might desire!

We loved all of the amenities and food goodies! The homemade banana and nut bread’s were awesome!

  • 5 of 5

We loved all of the amenities and food goodies stocked in the refrigerator! The homemade banana and nut bread’s were awesome! The Jacuzzi was a nice surprise and the sunset views on the beach were fabulous! An extra touch was the ability to use their beach chairs and snorkel equipment. We loved the stocked refrigerator as well in our private kitchen and especially the fruit juices! My husband even made macadamia nut pancakes one morning for breakfast! Everyone was so nice and the accommodations were very clean. Beach towels and fancy robes were also furnished. We just can’t think of the thing that Aloha Kau Inn didn’t provide. A Scottish couple renewed their vows on this beautiful property at sunset. Hope this gives others something to think about. We highly recommend this Inn/bed-and-breakfast. Mahalo, Barbara and Bob Hunter

STUNNING location, beautiful immaculate spacious suite with every possible amenity included. Loved the personal connection via telephone, and email with the hosts Charlene and Gary prior to arriving and the warm welcome we received from Linda.

Mahalo for sharing your piece of paradise with us.

We totally enjoyed our stay in Bamboo suite. The property is lovely and all of the extras were quite the surprise. Fruits, juices, yogurt and recreation equipment. Beach location wonderful and close to all the action. Would stay again without hesitation. Hosts have thought of it all.

Everything we wanted and more

  • 5 of 5

We needed a peaceful, relaxing vacation in a major way and Char and Gary at Aloha Aku were the answer. Beautiful, private, tropical property on the beach. We saw Sea Turtles every day we were there, whales on most days, many varieties of birds, and beautiful trees on site. All comforts were thought of here; breakfast items, comfy king bed, updated kitchen, hot tub off the lanai, beach chairs, ocean toys, anything you may need to use on your Maui vacation. They've thought of everything their guests may want or need. We wouldn't change a thing. Perfect! We wish we were still there!

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 !

Why Charlene and Gary chose Kihei

We were coming home and we just found this magical location and opportunity. We are happy to be able to get it and to be able to open it up to others

What makes this house unique

Great views, great beach, great location, and oh yes, just great.


Nearest Beach
Waiohuli Beach

Located in Central Kihei and within walking distance of most everything you might want or need. Tucked away at the end of a 700 foot long drive and right on the beach.
