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."

"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 have stayed at the Sand and Surf Villa two times now and we just got back from our second visit. We brought my husbands sister and brother-in-law from Scotland who had never been to Hawaii before. It was the PERFECT place to introduce someone to the islands. The house is very tidy and well kept, the sunsets are spectacular and the location (7 minute walk to Lahaina) is ideal. The fact that you can virtually walk out from the backyard right on to the beach is priceless. Yet there is still very much a sense of privacy; you can sit on a lounge chair in the back yard and watch the surfers right before your eyes. And the whales when in season!
From the large kitchen to the hot tub - it's a wonderful and charming place to call your own for a week or two. I highly recommend the Sand and Surf Villa. And Ryan Williams from Precision Maui is just a delight to work with. Met every need and answered any question we might have had.
We will be back, you can count on that!"
