About Susan McCasland

We love Maui! My husband and I have been coming to the island for 25 years and fell in love here. After we married in 1998, and our family began to grow, we would all come to Maui as a family and have such a blessed time. So, we thought why not try to offer this experience to other families! So, I retired from the Wine Industry and we purchased our first two homes in Maui in 2003.

Our goal was to set-up a home walking distance to a swimmable beach , have more than three bedrooms and a pool! Plus, be able to walk to a Town.

We have a beautiful property now to offer all families located the on the Westside of Maui in the Old Whaler's Town of Lahaina. Many generational families come each year to enjoy the Maui lifestyle. This is a home where larger groups can come and truly enjoy their experience on the island. We offer bicycles to cruise around town, the Lahaina Harbor is just two blocks away for fishing, snorkeling trips or cruises.

We have worked hard to make sure the home is in perfect condition upon arrival, and even have a caretaker on the property so as to take care of any need you may have. Jay and Julie can offer local tips on Restaurants and sightseeing, as well as provide Private Chef and Personal Concierge services. You can have your vacation all planned out so when you arrive you only have to relax!

Susan McCasland purchased this house in 2005

Why Susan McCasland chose West Maui

This home has a very unique and special feel. It is a peaceful retreat where you can close the gates and within the walled home, escape the world around. Lounge around the pool, practice yoga near the waterfall/ pond, pick the fruit from fruit trees or enjoy a poolside BBQ.

After a relaxing afternoon, hop on a bike and head into Lahaina Town and shop, dine by the water and watch the sunset, dance or view an Art Gallery or two.

What makes this house unique

Location, location, location! This home is located in a very nice, local Lahaina neighborhood. This is unique because the actual town of Lahaina is very small and the number of single family homes is small.

Many homes list their location as Lahaina, however very few homes are actually in the Town of Lahaina.

Feel like a local, go green! Hop on a bike or travel by foot to anywhere you want to go from this homes location.

Best Place Ever

  • 5 of 5

This house was amazing. Susan was wonderful to work with and I definitely will come back to stay at this house. The care takers are so nice of people and simply said...One cannot find a better suited home to stay at on vacation. The pool was like a bit of heaven on earth. So glad to have had the opportunity to stay here.

Paradise Found

  • 5 of 5

Amazing property perfect for friends and family. Big enough to sleep 8 people with a gorgeous master suite. The property is close to everything including beaches, restaurants and shopping. If you want to stay in and relax the pool and patio are fantastic. They also have great cooking utensils which you don't always see in a rental property.

Our stay at the Gatehouse

  • 4 of 5

Our family stayed at the Lahina Gate House last week. It was perfect for our group of 7 adults and 1 baby. It was so nice to be close to the beach and the town. The only complaint we had was the pool is not heated so was a little uncomfortable to swim in... so we spent more time at the beach or hotel pools. Otherwise, the house was very enjoyable.

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Property was great for our group of 8 people ranging in ages from 6-71. The location, amenities, and supplies were all appreciated. The on site property managers were also a great resource for us while we were there. The house was well maintained and very clean. We would definitely recommend this property.

Perfect vacation home in paradise!

  • 5 of 5

The Lahaina Gatehouse is the perfect home to rent for a large family (or 2) getaway! We had 8 people (including 4 adults and 4 children ranging in age from 7-17) spend a week in Maui. This house had everything we needed for a comfortable and relaxing stay. The salt water pool in the backyard is beautiful. There is also a great barbecue grill and a kitchen filled with all of the tools needed to prepare great meals. Additionally, having a washer and dryer makes life so much easier with children! Also available for our use were lots of beach chairs, snorkeling gear, umbrellas, coolers and bicycles. The location is perfect; it's an easy walk to the downtown area on Front Street where all of the shops, restaurants and the famous banyan tree are located. There is beach access very close (about a 5 minute walk). This beach is small and was great for the entire family. The waves break a ways out so the water along the beach is calm and allowed for great snorkeling, paddle boarding and relaxing. We even had a turtle swimming right next to us along the shoreline. It's an easy drive to a variety of activities. Be sure to visit the Maui Ocean Center if you have children. A great hike can be found in the Iao Valley and the snorkeling at Napili Bay was perfect. For those who like to golf, check out Kaanapali and Kapalua. The owners went above and beyond to ensure our comfort while staying in their home and made us feel very welcome. The concierge, Lisa, was equally amazing and helped us get tee times and other activities booked. She set us up for the Drums of the Pacific Luau at the Hyatt - one of the best luaus I have ever attended! This was truly an amazing vacation filled with great memories....we hope to return again and stay in the Lahaina Gatehouse. Thank you for sharing this wonderful home with us!!
