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 ! Char and Gary
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.
Best place in Maui I've found!
This property is perfect! The owners have thought of everything and the little touches of things, like snack food, access to the laundry, the beach amenities, the library - just simply amazing. The property is very clean, well maintained and the check in directions received make it all work flawlessly. The beach was uncrowded and we enjoyed watching the sunsets right from our patio. We like the small resort feel or private homes and this place completely worked for us. Thank you for allowing us to stay at this fabulous property.
Mahalo Teresa! We are very pleased to hear that you had a wonderful time! Come visit again soon. Aloha!
Great place, highly recommend it!!!
Great place to stay if you like beaches, sunsets and sea turtles! Quiet and great kitchen if you like to cook for yourself. If we end up heading to Maui again, we will for sure consider Aloha Aku, owners and property managers were very nice and helpful, plus all the fun stuff (i..e., paddle boards, kayaks, snorkel great, bikes) is already onsite for you to use. Not top of the line stuff, but it's easy to get and already included. Great place to stay!
Mahalo Kevin! We are happy to hear that you had a great vacation, and hope you are able to return soon again. Aloha!
What a peaceful and beautiful spot away from the crowds but in close proximity to the essentials. A lovely property with everything you would need. Great communication from the hosts... we arrived at the wrong gate (went too far) and within seconds we were able to connect with them and get turned around. Upon arrive your fridge was stocked with fresh fruit and baked goods!!! Bed was extremely comfortable.... my husband Pat bonded with the geese! Would stay again in a heartbeat!! Thank you!
Big Mahalos for the 5 stars!!! Looking forward to you coming back. A hui hou!

Char and Gary
This was our second visit to Maui and our first visit at Aloha AKU Hula Suite. We absolutely loved everything about our stay!! So private! The suite was exactly as advertised. The beach was quiet, perfect for swimming and sunbathing, paddle boarding and our long morning walks. We really enjoyed the wildlife on the property as well. This will be our place to visit from now on.
Loved every bit of it!!❤️
Aloha Lisa, We are so happy you had a great stay. Please come again soon! Mahalo Charlene & Gary
On the Beach and Well Equipped
We enjoyed our time here. The room faces the ocean with a great view of the sunset. The common room with useful food items and extras was much appreciated. It’s very handy to walk to restaurants and other services.
Big Mahalo for the five stars! We enjoyed having you.

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.
