  • 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."

  • Gorgeous views in an excellent location

    "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."
