For my 50th B-day I wanted to treat the family to Maui. We had 8 adults and 2 children 4/6. The property manager and cleaning lady are both named Melissa. Whereas I wasn't made aware of this until the day of arrival, it seemed "odd". Melissa the cleaning person will answer any question within hours, and the manager within a couple of days, (she lives in the same area). Check in time is 4pm and check out is 10am and they seemed to be "stiff" on the times. Yes, the property offers a complete kitchen, beach towels and pool toys for the kids. Regarding the property the views were amazing. The house was beautiful and had an excellent layout. Each day it was 79-81 degrees and sunny but the pool stayed Cold even for the kids so we ended up going to the beach each day, which the ocean water was at least 10 degrees warmer. (the owners added a solar panel heat system for the pool in 2014), however it really doesn't work well.. The hot tub we used during the evening but only 2 jets work.. Do not understand since the manager has a pool service come out weekly to check it out and to maintain the hot tub/pool. I wasn't told this until the day of arrival that there was a gas leak, and I wasn't able to use the tiki torches. The overall property receives 4.5 stars, Melissa the manager receive 2 stars, Melissa the cleaning lady receives 4 stars."

"I stayed in this home with my husband, my sister and her husband, and their two children aged 5 and 8. We kept saying what a perfect place it was. There are wrap around windows throughout the ocean side of the home and palm trees frame the pool, which my sister said seemed like an infinity pool because it blended so beautifully with the large ocean view. This home is clearly loved and well-cared for. There was no wasted space in this home, which is beautifully decorated with fine, but comfortable, furniture and appointments, and good space for adults and kids and all together. Gabriel and Linda both met us on the day of our arrival and gave us a personal walk-through of the home. They are gracious and warm people, and we hope we were successful in being respectful of their Maui treasure. Mahalo for such a wonderful part of our experience in Hawaii! Andy & Cathy, Jason & Molly, & Kids!!"

"We are grandparents in our 60's and decided a family getaway was in order. Our two children, their spouses and two grandsons 4 and 8 rounded out the group. The gatehouse was absolutely perfect for us all! Enough room to get together but have our own space too. The pool had recently been refurbished and was the greatest place to spend time. Our grandsons truly had a swimming immersion week. We could see their progress and that was well worth the trip. Proximity to Lahaina made it easy to leave the cars at the house and we took advantage of the short walk to the beach. The neighborhood smells were amazing as we made the walk...the plumeria was our personal favorite. There was miscellaneous water footwear in various sizes and other items left by past guests...some beach toys, a small ice chest, beach mat and umbrella. Boogie boards for the pool/beach, a kayak, a paddle board and a surf board or two. There are also several bikes that the kids took to town. We wouldn't hesitate to rent the gatehouse again. We pass along the highest endorsement for this property based on proximity to Lahaina, beach, amenities at the house, the terrific saltwater pool and attentive assistance of Lisa, the onsite manager which made everything so nice. It was a super vacation at the Lahaina Gatehouse."

"We stayed in this home for seven days in March and it was unbelievable. From the moment we drove into the driveway, Holden was so helpful and courteous. Since there were 12 of us, we rented the entire house and I felt badly that we were keeping Holden, Gene and Shirley out of their home. The furnishings were so beautiful, I made sure our grandchildren took good care of everything. The location was perfect, we were able to walk into town and the ocean was right in front of us. Our sons and their families were so happy and are eager to return. It couldn't have been a nicer stay for all of us. We ate out half of the time and cooked in half of the time. We had so much fun eating on the deck and enjoying the hot tub. There were two hot tubs but we only used one. The kitchens were great, had everything we could ask for. It was so nice to be able to open the glass doors and have the outdoors right in the house. The pictures don't show how beautiful the house is. Being a VRBO owner, I know what it is to have property that is not taken care of by tenants, and I was amazed how nicely the house was furnished, so we were very careful with everything. It was hard getting dressed in the morning because I was having such a wonderful time watching the whales out of the bathroom window. The sunsets were equally as breathtaking. The bathrooms were spectacular and it was hard to get the kids out of the showers, both indoors and outdoors. I relaxed and read on the daybeds outside during the day while the kids went snorkeling, paddle boarding and just enjoying the water. It was the best family vacation we have ever had and we hope to do it again. I had the pleasure of meeting Shirley, Holden's mother and she is indeed a classy lady. I wish she lived closer to me and I hope to keep in touch with her. They are a wonderful family and they really love living in Maui. I recommend this home highly, it just doesn't get any better than this!"
