"The house and location were the perfect setting for my 40th destination birthday celebration. My friends (a party of 7 including myself) had plenty of space to spread out and enjoy each others' company while maintaining privacy. The kitchen is well stocked with equipment to make group dinners while the patio facing the beach is perfect for sunrise breakfasts. The house stays very cool during the hottest part of the day. I enjoyed napping to the rhythmic sound of the ceiling fan in the master bedroom while listening to sounds of the ocean during my daily siesta. We especially enjoyed being footsteps from the beach and minutes away from a resort where one can enjoy a mai tai after a morning swim. The bedrooms are clean and airy, the bathrooms are spacious and modern, everything works, the interior decor is subtle and tasteful. Everyone loved this house! It has "good bones." The property is a 5 minutes walk to town, so the option of not having to drive to dinner or to a movie was a big win for us. The yard is perfect for lounging; it includes several comfortable beach chairs, a hammock and hot tub. The beach toys were a nice touch and we made good use of the outside shower. There is a small gray cat who manages the property who welcomed us upon our arrival. I'm not sure who he belongs to but he is very sweet and quickly endeared himself as part of the group. We named him Maui-Wowie. This is a fantastic place to get away to relax in, a perfect little piece of paradise. As soon as I arrived I was a little sad because I knew I would have to leave, eventually. I am already planning a return trip."

"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."

"Spent 7 days at the Sandy Beach Plantation home of the Smith's and had an amazing time. The home(s) had everything we could have asked for. The attention to detail with the amenities was perfect. It was truly a stress free trip. Ten of us shared the home(s) and we never felt crowded. Hard to say which part of the day was the best between the 10 steps it took to reach the beach to start the morning walk with a cup of coffee, paddle boarding mid-day, watching the amazing sunset over the island of Lanai in the evening from the deck of the house or falling asleep to the ocean waves. On our drive to the airport for departure we could only talk about what an amazing time we had and planning our return back!"

"We had a wonderful experience in this home. The home itself is lovely and comfortable, with peek-a-boo views of the ocean. Clean and well- laid out. We could walk into the resort area of Ka'anapali easily for both beach and dining, but we had enough separation from the resorts to allow us to relax. The owner / manager, Angelia, was so attentive and made sure the house had everything we could want. In fact, I don't think we have stayed anywhere previously that was as well provisioned as this house was. We all consider ourselves lucky to have been able to stay here!!"
