  • 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.........."

  • Fabulous stay at an amazing home

    "You are never sure what to expect the first time you actually see the home you've rented, but I can say with all honesty that Pau 'ole Makai exceeded all my expectations. The moment we entered the gate, we were struck by the beauty, peacefulness and luxurious details of the property. Everything is perfectly situated for indoor/outdoor living and the house accommodated our diverse group (2 teenage girls, a toddler boy, and 2 adult couples) expertly. My husband and toddler and I occupied the master suite...and the King bed is very comfortable and was big enough for all 3 of us (you could also fit a pack n' play or toddler bed, if needed). My sister's family with the teenagers shared the main house with 2 bedrooms that were spaced at opposite ends for complete privacy.The kitchen is lovely and well-appointed with hi-end appliances...and the BBQ/bar area is just steps away outside and with a view of the ocean. We cooked at home and dined on the lanai almost every night. Also, the access to the laundry facilities in the master suite was a necessity for our group. We spent a lot of time in the pool...the temperature was perfect and the hot tub heated really quickly when we wanted to warm up and relax. My senior parents were staying at a very nice beachfront hotel in Napili and I think they were surprised by the wonderful privacy and luxury that the home provided. They often came by in the afternoon to enjoy our pool and stayed for cocktails and dinner outside. The view from the property is amazing and we were even able to catch a whale breaching and many more spouting water from their blow holes as they went by...and the sunsets were spectacular! The location was perfect too, very close to Old Lahaina and a short drive to other attractions beyond. I totally recommend this property to anyone who enjoys the comforts and privacy of a home (with many added perks like the pool/spa and gorgeous view) while they are on a vacation. It made the whole experience of Maui that much better."

  • 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!"
