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.

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 !

Great place

Truly a memorable stay.

All the amenities of a resort and a home away from home.

There are ducks and birds.

Just a few steps to a beautiful sandy smooth beach

Loved our stay.

Thank you Char and Gary.

Loved the peace and beauty

  • 5 of 5

Definitely a place of love and kindness, plus tranquillity and joy. We held my daughter and son-in-law's wedding reception at this beautiful place. The amenities were fabulous and Char and Gary's thoughtfulness and cooperation were amazing. The Ohana suite was so comfortable and well-stocked and came with delicious, nutritious breakfast every day! The grounds are beautifully maintained and the beach feels very private. We used the kayaks and had a great time! I will definitely come again.

Paradise on Earth

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at Aloha Aku to celebrate my daughter's wedding. We also held the wedding at Aloha Aku and it was as beautiful a wedding as you could imagine! My wife and 2 sons stayed in the Ohana suite -- it was very spacious and comfortable. Everything you need is provided (beach towels, shampoo, robes, beach chairs, water shoes, bikes, paddleboards, etc.). Each room has air conditioning and ceiling fans -- a welcome feature if you're not used to the heat and humidity. The Ohana suite is set apart a little ways from the other suites so you have complete privacy. The property is beautiful and literally steps away from the beach. We stay exclusively at vacation rentals when we take trips and this one is at the top of our list. Thank you Char and Gary for helping make this such a memorable experience for our family. We will be back!

Wonderful trip!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I recently returned from a fantastic ten day stay at the Alohaaku in the Ohana Suite. Everything was fantastic. We were originally hoping to stay in one of the four ocean front suites but were thrilled after our stay in this suite. It offers tons of space (it is huge!), very private and quiet. The beds are very comfortable and the air conditioners are silent and cool down the rooms nicely for sleeping. There are so many little features that made the suite special but one worth mentioning was the inclusion of a blender that allowed us to make our daily smoothies. On the site there were many amenities that we made use of including the wake boards, stand up paddle boards, beach chairs, snorkel gear and cooler. Another item we loved and made nightly use of was the heated spa, it was a great way to finish each night with a glass of wine.

We enjoyed the beach very much. It is not crowded and the waves are not very high. It is a little rocky but fine with water shoes (available in common area). The central location is also perfect for visiting many of the local beaches.

Many thanks to Char and Gary for letting us stay at their wonderful place. We were made to feel at home. Also would like to extend thanks to the on site staff who were very friendly and helpful. We will definitely return.

Absolutely Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

What can't I say about how awesome this place was. The caretakers are amazing and extremely friendly. We all felt like we were family. The grounds are wonderfully kept and felt like I was at a resort. Being steps from the beach and swimming with turtles every hour of the day was just stunning, let alone the amazing sunset views. The "pay-it-forward" approach to sharing what's been left behind and the daily breakfast goodies was a wonderful surprise. Not having keys (as everything is keypad entry) made everything so easy. Having the watersports gear available made it so much fun. We loved it and hope to get back some day. Thanks Char and Gary!
