  • Another day in paradise...

    "After a 27 hours trip from Paris, what a pleasure to discover your house, the kind message of Patty, snacks and coffee ! The first morning was just amazing ! Sunrise over the seaside view and the garden, just magnificent. Thanks for the CDs of Hawaiian music that we listened to in the evening while enjoying a nice diner outside... We'll go back in France full of memories : whales, the road to Hana, ocean centre, big beach, shave ice, lu'au ... :) and thanks to all the people of Maui for their kindness. Hope one day we can come back. Mahalo !"

  • Paradise Found

    "From the moment we drove up to our rental, until we watched it disappear in our rearview mirror, we were truly in Paradise. My husband and I, along with our three young-adult boys, spent seven glorious nights in this dream home while preparing for and attending our daughter’s beach wedding on another part of the Island. Although it was hard to believe, Sandy Beach Plantation was even more beautiful than was shown in the pictures. The entire home was spotless. We couldn’t believe how close we were to the beach... just steps away. The guys spent a lot of time in the large hot tub, which had a built-in sound system, along with color-changing lights. They also did a lot of snorkeling, and what a perfect location! A reef just off the beach provided calm waters and with it many colorful and interesting sea creatures for the boys to admire. After dark, they would go out with their flashlights to hunt crabs. Brought a tear to my eye, reminding me of when they were little. Tiny lizards were another amusement. While traveling other parts of the Island, we were reminded of how lucky we were to not have to face strong winds and large waves for our water activities. The bathrooms in our rental were like something out of a magazine... the lights would turn on when we’d enter the master bathroom. The showers were phenomenal. Setting up our laptop was a breeze. My review wouldn’t be complete if I didn’t mention Gene and Shirley! Their son owns the rental and they were staying in the other half. What a sweet. helpful and interesting couple. They were beyond amazing. I feel like I’ve made a new friend in Shirley. If you choose to reserve this house, I would insist that Gene and Shirley be there for your stay! I don’t have a single complaint about Sandy Beach Plantation and would go back in a heartbeat. I miss it already!"

  • 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.........."
