Come enjoy everything Maui has to offer while staying in our beautifully appointed Gardenia Suite. Located a short half block off the end of Maui's longest walking beach, enjoy whale watching and the beautiful Maui sunsets over Ma'alaea Bay.
Formerly operated as a boutique hotel that was rated as a 'Hidden Gem' by Maui Revealed, Aloha Pualani consists of 6 townhouse type units. Our Gardenia Suite features 2 floors of gracious living. The upper contains the master suite plus a generous covered lanai with a view of the ocean and gardens below. The main floor has a fully outfitted kitchen and living room.
The property features beautiful landscaping with tropical plants, a gated courtyard with saline pool, patio furniture, fountain, and fish pond. Just 30 feet from the Gardenia Suite there is a handsome outdoor bar, high quality barbecue, ice maker, refrigerator and cooking area.
The property is centrally located on Maui, 20 minutes from the Kahului Airport, roughly a half hour from Lahaina, and within 10 to 15 minutes from the many beautiful beaches of Wailea and Makena.
If you are looking for the ideal Hawaii getaway but prefer being away from the large hotels and condo's, come join us at the Aloha Pualani Gardenia Suite. We own two of the 6 suites, and keep one for our own use, and accordingly are deeply committed to keeping the facility at a high level of quality.

This is a small, 6-unit property in more of a residential type of area than a heavy tourist area with large hotels and condo complexes. Its grounds are beautiful and well maintained. In the gated area in the middle of the complex there is a lovely solar heated, saline swimming pool, and a commercial quality outdoor kitchen/bar area for guests to enjoy. It is just a half a block from the longest walking beach in Maui, where you will see the most beautiful sunsets Maui has to offer due west from the beach. We make our owner's closet available to our guests, with beach towels, snorkle gear, beach chairs and matts, umbrella's, etc.
Our family owns 2 of the 6 units, and we use one of the units full time, and rent this unit most of the time. Therefore, we are available on site to help with information about Maui, and our presence helps assure that the grounds and apartments are well kept.
Our property is very nicely located--roughly 15 minutes from the airport, within minutes of the many beautiful beaches of Kihei, Wailea and Makena, and approximately a half hour from Lahaina. There are many restaurants, stores and shops within minutes of our place.
It was the reviews we read about this property that sold my husband and me on staying here, and they are not wrong! We loved the place. Beautiful pool literally steps from your door, private and secluded, right across the street from the beach, and wonderfully landscaped. It was very windy the first couple of days we were there, and the trees and lush foliage surrounding the property made for a very welcome windbreak, along with giving the property its air of seclusion and privacy. The unit itself made us feel at home the moment we walked in and has everything you could want to make your stay comfortable and inviting. The location in Kihei can't be beat - close enough to everything, but away from the busyness of Wailea. Thank you, Edward, for your thoughtfulness and kindness!
The property was well kept with a fabulous outdoor grilling space for all to use. The condo was clean and bedding quite comfortable. Edward was helpful and answered questions quickly willing to provide suggestions upon all requests.
Mahalo Edward for a great vacation!
The unit is exactly as described - the only surprises are pleasant ones: ample towels (and beach towels), beach chairs, coolers, good quality snorkel and boogie board equipment... really everything you need to have a great time on Maui. The only thing I think we were left looking for was an ice cream scoop.
If you're debating staying on the West Side vs Kihei or East side, we found that this side of Maui has less people, easier access and activities to do, and less of a "commercial" feel than the West side. That being said, it also feels less "resorty".
The location of the unit was great for us: located North of the "busy" section of Kihei, with access to a great walking beach across the street.
- Surfers and windsurfing at Ho'okipa
- The crowd around Paia, Haiku and Makawao
- The big beach at Makena
- Snorkeling and sea turtles around Makena
- Haleakala summit
- Learning to surf at Kalama
- Walking the beach to Maalea Harbour (about 3 hrs round trip)
Looking forward to returning sometime soon!
We have traveled extensively and stayed in many VRBO rentals over the years. This condo far exceeded our expectations. We loved the fact that there were only 6 units and from the time you walk into the gated entrance, you feel like you've entered a wonderful Hawaiian boutique property. There is a lovely pool area that is fully equipped with a grill , refrigerator, dish washer, sink and ice maker. There are several seating areas that are great for eating dinner outside, including a bar with bar stools . The condo was spacious and we loved the fact that the living area is downstairs and the bedroom/bathroom area is upstairs. You have no upstairs neighbors so it is very quiet. The bedroom has a beautiful lanai where you can sit and read or have coffee in the morning. There is also another smaller lanai so you have a good tropical cross breeze.The grounds are wonderful and very tastefully done. We can't imagine staying anywhere else and look forward to returning soon! We found the Manager and Owner to be very accommodating and very quick to answer any questions!
The wife and I spent a week at the Aloha Pualani and came away very impressed with a number of things. It was our first time in Maui but we have used VRBO several times in the past, we thought this property stood out for sure. The location is ideal as it is very short drive to the town of Kihei and anything you need but still out of town enough so you aren't dealing with noise and lots of people. The place is right across the street from the beach which was very swimmable and even had a spot with walled off a cove (about a 1/2 mile south) where some resident turtles were very present. We always had parking spots to choose from and the solar heated saltwater pool was available any time. We had great hosts that dropped off fresh limes and bananas for us and made sure that we had what we needed. The unit itself had anything we needed and we were especially grateful for the beach gear that we used daily as we explored different beaches around the island.
If you are lucky enough to goto Maui and vacation, this property is a great choice!
Another great stay at the Gardenia Suite. This is our 4th stay at the Gardenia Suite and, just like past stays everything was perfect! Can't wait for our 5th visit!
