Overview

About the property

Bedrooms 1, Bathrooms 1, Sleeps 4

Blessed by Kaunas, Aloha Aku means the place that ‘gives love and kindness’. Formally known as Aikane Hale.

Welcome to our CoCoPalm suite. Hawaii is known for its exotic palm trees and this Suite exemplifies the swaying luxury and serenity that the many different species of palms on Maui offers. Aloha Aku estate has a rich example of exotic palms and fruit trees, some very rare. The Suite has a nice sense of privacy as the end-most suite and everything you might need is inside waiting for you. You might just not want to leave and you for sure will want to come back.

Guests have described Aloha Aku 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 out front of Aloha Aku is only accessible from Aloha Aku or the private neighboring homes and condos. As a result the beach is underused and hardly traveled. Sometimes it's like having your own private beach.

Hidden behind the tallest mangrove forest in the state, Aloha Aku will pleasantly greet you with an extravaganza of natural Hawaiian beauty. Aloha Aku lulls you into a wondrous state of being, yet is in the ultimate location for access to the many conveniences in mid-Kihei. Aloha Aku is well situated to be your base of operations to explore the rest of the Maui island, just twenty minutes from the airport and are within easy walking distance of nearby groceries, shopping, pupu bars(appetizers), dozens of eateries, bars, car rentals, dive shops, and 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) (pronounced ka-nay), 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 cards to worry about), flat screen HD TV's 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 fully equipped kitchen. Take a cool dip in the ili-ili (smooth) stone dipping pools or take an invigorating Jacuzzi while watching the stunning sunsets. In addition there is a gas barbeque on site nestled between some acacia palm trees overlooking the State protected La'ie wetlands.

We can’t wait to host you and see your happy faces and hope that you find that Aloha Aku has the intimacy, amenities, and aloha to be your favorite luxury getaway. Maui is considered one of top vacation destinations in the world and after staying at Aloha Aku 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 !

Tropical seclusion!

We loved the Aloha Aku property!

Location and its B&B feel were the first reasons, but we found so many more bonus benefits to list! Must experience to believe.

No Kai Oi

  • 5 of 5

What can we say other than we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Aloha Aku. The grounds are beautiful and well-maintained. We named the friendly ducks Fred and Ethel. We enjoyed the jacuzzi every night too. We appreciated that anything and everything we would need to battle the rain, go the beach, or play in the water was made available. Thanks to Linda and Jose for getting the place ready so we could check in early. I especially loved swimming with the turtles at the beach directly in front of the property. We walked to many restaurants and liked how close we were to the grocery store and Long Drugs. We would definitely stay again and we are already trying to recruit other family members to join us. Thank you Gary and Charlene for sharing your space with us - such fond memories we will never forget.

Ahhhh... Just what the Dr. ordered

  • 5 of 5

We took over the 4 units that face the beach for 10 days, with friends and it was an amazing experience! I think we only drove off the property (other than to re supply) 2 or 3 times. Everything we needed was on site. Lots of beach chairs, umbrellas, paddle boards, various games etc.

The dipping pool was perfect to just sit and chill and chat, or read, or whatever. The rooms are well appointed, spacious and clean. Direct TV in both the living room and bedroom (but if you're using them, you're missing the point) We bought food and cooked for the group of 8 almost every night. Dinner on the lawn under the stars with friends was amazing. Karen(?) and Char were most helpful and accommodating for some of our un conventional requests.

Close enough to the happening spots in Kihei, but quiet in the evenings made for a most relaxing respite from the Northern Winter.

Cant really say enough about this place, other than, We will definitely be returning

The Perfect Get Away!

  • 5 of 5

Our beachfront suite was just perfect for our anniversary get away. Everyone was so friendly and warm and the setting tranquil and relaxing. The only negative thing I can say is we should have stayed for two more weeks! I'm still dreaming of our perfect vacation and I can't wait to go back for a longer stay!

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.
