Mother of the Family
"This home was amazing!! It was perfect for our family with plenty of room. The location was outstanding. You could walk to just about everything, the restaurants, shopping and the harbor. Just next door you could rent surf boards and paddle boards. We loved being on the beach. I would recommend this house to rent."

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.........."

"Lovely & immaculate home! Our 1st time on Maui. Brooke (the owner) was very prompt & easy to deal with & their caretaker (friend), Hans, was very warm & welcoming. Prompt if we ever had an issue/question/looking for a suggestion, etc. Very casual & laid back area. Lahaina is a charming town. Fun shops & restaurants that are an easy walk from the house. Kapalua golf is a 15-20 minute drive. Whale sightings from shore as well as a cruise from nearby Lahaina harbor was a highlight from our week. Fortunate enough to have my in-laws with us & my mom to celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary & 70th birthday respectively. Can't imagine a better place to mark those milestones! Hard to leave. We hope to return. Thank you for sharing your special home with us!!"

"My husband and I, along with 3 couples just returned from Maui after staying at this property for 9 nights. We absolutely loved the location, views and the amenities the home had to offer. The home and grounds are very well maintained and had almost everything we needed. The pictures do not do the property justice! The pool was a great size and temperature. The spa/hot tub is not heated, it may have been nice to have it warmer for an evening soak but not worth the extra cost to heat it. The configuration of bedrooms to bathrooms are as follows: Main floor has gorgeous master suite with King size bed, en suite bathroom and access to pool deck. This bedroom is directly off the dining room/door to pool deck. Upstairs there are 3 bedrooms and a bathroom. Bedroom 1 has a King bed and views of the mountain and if you look to the side, you can see the ocean. Bedroom 2 has a Queen bed and access to lanai that stretches across to the game room patio doors and bedroom 4 patio doors. Bedroom 4 has Queen size bed, lanai access and private bathroom with shower/tub combo. Bedroom 2 & 3 shared the upstairs bathroom that had double vanity and a large walk in shower (there is no direct access to this bathroom from either bedrooms). There is a 4th bathroom on the main floor off the dining room with large shower and door to outside that we used when in the pool.
The owners greeted us the evening we arrived and welcomed us with 2 large baskets of fresh fruit, baking, snacks, souvenirs, wine and coffee which was greatly appreciated! While we were on the island, the owner was easily accessible by phone or email and answered all the questions we had and provided us with helpful information about Maui. We will definitely recommend this property to friends and family and would stay again when we return.
Tips: We used the barbecue as much as we could as the oven and stove took a very long time to cook.
If you plan to use the pool for activities, pack or purchase floaties as there were none there. We did leave a couple lounge floaties and a ball there for the next guests. If you plan to be out by/in the pool a lot, purchase one of those Styrofoam coolers or bring along a soft cooler to keep beverages outside with you."
