  • If you want an amazing view, fabulous house and great location - this is the place for you!

    "Sadly, we just returned today from an eight night stay at this amazing house. Everything was great from start to finish. We were greeted by Alex who was very easy going and let it be known you could contact him for anything. At one point I called just to say we were low on some simple house supplies and they were there that afternoon. Why stay here? There are a lot of reasons, but the number one is the view! The whale watching from the lanai is unmatched! All day you can sit and watch the activity. Bring binoculars if you have them. It never gets old. Seeing two breach right next to each other was the highlight. It was my senior parents, boyfriend and myself staying at the house. The master bedroom is set apart front the main house giving a couple extra privacy. All three bedrooms have great views. Both bathrooms are more than what you will need. There are plenty of towels for both showers and pool / beach. The kitchen has everything you will need. Six burner gas stove, pans, grill, coffee maker, lots of glasses and spices. We stopped at Costco near the airport to stock up on main supplies (coffee, orange juice, bacon, nuts, cheese, ham, crackers, bagels, butter, milk, water, steaks etc.) There are left over spices so don't waste your money on slat and pepper. I am an animal lover so it was great to have the neighbors dog visit (Drummer). The puppy Mojo was not allowed free reign. My favorite was there little bunny Ping. I would be up early and he would visit around 6:15am and take lettuce from me. I also enjoyed being up early (not a problem coming from Minnesota to be up around 5:30 - 6:00am) to take a walk each morning. Once you exit the drive way and go right go down the hill, about a half a mile, you will find two path options. Or you can go straight down to the beach. If you take this route it is about a 3 mile round trip route, but you climb about 900 feet back up. We used the beach chairs to visit local beaches. We did not use the cooler, but it was in great shape. They have a nice TV if you are into that on vacation. We turned it on once. The location is great. Very close to Lahaina for expeditions, shopping and dining. It was also easy to navigate part of the north loop up to the blow hole. We also easily went to Wailia for golf and dinner. Close to Ka' anapoli for dinner and shopping too. If you are considering this house - DO IT - you will not be disappointed! Mahalo!"

  • Best family vacation ever.........................

    "Our family stayed at this beautiful Gate House property for a week. 6 adults and five children - aged 13 through 20 months. Having never been to Maui and most of us never to Hawaii we were pleased beyond words at this home. Everyone had a place to sleep restfully and the home is big enough to allow time together but also when needed quiet alone time. The pool was a huge success and many hours of family time and fun were had by all. Everything we needed was at our fingertips, bikes, snorkling gear, pool/beach toys and coolers for the beach. The house is within walking distance to a beach and the downtown area. Lisa the property manager was wonderful to work with but most of all is a real "sweetheart" of a person. She was able to answer all our questions and was there to assist us when needed. But most of all my family considers her a friend now who we will go back and see, and of course stay at this gorgeous home. If you want the perfect vacation home in Lahaina you have to rent the Gate House. Great home close to everything, quiet neigborhood and easy to get to from anywhere. I would recommend this home in a heartbeat. My families week there was undoubtfully the best vacation we've ever had. Can't wait to return.........."

  • Great place and great service

    "Beautiful, well maintained house within 2 minute walk of one of Maui's best beaches for kids. Owners are very invested in guests' stay and on-island property manager is very helpful. Highly recommend."

  • Incredible home!

    "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!"
