Property description

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.

Why Aloha Pualani:
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.
