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

Magic in Kehei
Loved our stay. Pool and spa even better than expected! Great swimming at the beach out front too. Can’t wait to come back! Thanks for a great experience!
Mahalo Jessi! We offer a 5% discount for return guests so keep us in mind for your next Maui Vacation. A Hui Hou!
My husband and I stayed at Aloha Aku for a week. It was amazing to watch the sun rise and set on the ocean while enjoying complimentary coffee and banana bread. We took the ocean kayak out and saw many turtles and whales breaching on the horizon. The accommodations were very private, clean and comfortable. I would definitely stay here again. We also enjoyed the birds and water fowl. Great place!
Big Mahalos for the 5 stars!!! So glad you had an amazing time here, and that you took the time to appreciate all that we have to offer here. It would be great to have you back!

Aloha AKU was our home away from home for 7 days and it was absolutely wonderful! We had the privacy we wanted, quiet beachfront patio and access to all the amenities we needed. Hands down one of the best places we've stayed. The property was gorgeous and very clean! We would love to go back!!
Home away from home...that's our goal. We're so thrilled you had a wonderful time. Looking forward to having you again, Mahalo for the lovely review.

Easy to get to and has everything you need! Easy access to beach! Plan on coming back soon!!
Mahalo Doug! We are happy that you enjoyed yourself. Looking forward to having you back! Aloha!
Great place; highly recommend. Already dreaming about returning.
Great property. Well maintained and thoughtfully equipped with everything you might need. Would give it 5 stars but the spa was not working the first few days. Also, the bathroom is located in the bedroom and the walls do not go to the ceiling, so when you use it during the night, it's hard not to disturb your partner. Other than that, it is perfect. Ideally located, close to everything, great view, very clean.
Mahalo Andrew, we appreciate the feedback! Glad you had a wonderful stay otherwise. Aloha!
This was our first visit to the islands of Hawaii and we were looking for the perfect beach front experience. The moment we drove through the gates of the property we knew we had found our paradise. The grounds are beautifully maintained and just a few steps to the beach. The Bamboo Suite is simply a home away from home, every attention to detail was complete. The beach was incredible with gorgeous sunsets, a mix between gentle waves and moderate surf, and miles of beach to walk on. The spa and dipping pool was a great way to end a day. We enjoyed nature here as well, watching the sea turtles at the beach and a small conservation area adjacent to the property was home to a multitude of bird species. There are only five suites on the premises so it is quiet and tranquil but only a short ride to restaurants and nightlife. We are already planning a return to our paradise, Aloha AKU.
It makes us incredibly happy to hear you both had such an incredible time, and loved it here. That is our main goal, to offer the perfect beach experience. We look forward to having you here again! Mahalo and Aloha!
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.
