The 2-bedroom Ohana (Family Suite) is the largest and has the most privacy of any suite at AlohaAKU including 950 sqft of living space. The 300 sqft covered private lanai sits high among the palms and feels like you're in a tree house. Located upstairs, above the property's storage garages, the Ohana sports a view of the State protected La'ie wetlands and has it's own private entrance, yet is only 35 steps from the ocean. The large living room, kitchen, and dining area gives guests the feeling of being right at home. The 2-bedrooms each have their own bathroom/walk-in shower area as well as in-room Flat Screens, HDTV, DirecTV and their own AC’s. A great place for 2 couples or small family to have the privacy they want and the space they need to enjoy the Maui / Aloha Aku experience.
Blessed by kaunas, 'aloha aku' means the place that ‘gives love and kindness’. Formally known as Aikane Hale.
Aloha Aku Inn & Suites is a tucked away, one-of-a-kind vacation gem. Our luxury Beachfront private estate has 4 beachfront one-bedroom suites and a garden view two-bedroom ohana. Each suite has a private entrance, separate 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 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!
