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 Lahaina
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.

We enjoyed this home, good neighborhood, only blocks away to the beach, parks, shopping, and eating places on the ocean.
It fit our needs
Not quite what we expected, the home was large, clean, in need of a little love, and the kitchen was exceptionally well-equipped for cooking for large groups. The ice maker was broken, a breaker was loose and the washer/dryer wouldn't work, but we figured out how to wiggle it to get the lights back on in the upstairs bathroom and for the washer/dryer. The walk to the beach was very nice but 2 minutes was much faster than we could walk at our fastest - 4 maybe. It was actually very close to downtown as the crow flies but the street was curved making it impossible to walk downtown without going several blocks out of your way either direction. The pool was pretty cold for the kids and they preferred the warmer water of the ocean. They had a statement posted about being charged extra if there was sand in the house (really!) but then there wasn't a broom except small whisk. Vacuum not too effective. The linens were nice, towels ample and thick, and we actually chose this home based on the three KING beds. The upstairs bedrooms share the bathroom. The downstairs king bedroom had a half bath and the large bathroom with tub/shower was off the living room. Awkward layout. The on-site caretakers were amazing and kudos to Doris for all her help. Extremely friendly and bent over backwards to accommodate our extra vehicle. For the price, it was very good.
Rest assured the sign regarding sand has been promptly removed. An oversight from our overzealous cleaning staff.
Beautiful Lahaina property - perfect family getaway!
The Lahaina Gate House was the perfect setting for our family getaway to Maui over Thanksgiving. It was spacious enough to comfortably accommodate our family of 10, including 4 children under 10. The house is outfitted for comfort - great beds/bedding, plenty of towels, wifi, TVs in most bedrooms, etc. The kids *loved* the pool and we all loved easily walking into Lahaina Town. The caretakers were very helpful. A definite "thumbs-up!" from us!
this was a great house for our family in a great location with all the a menities
the property was as promised including all the necessary items for our small babies ( pakn plays). Kitchen was well equipped and the pool was wonderful. The location was a lso good, quiet neighborhood but within walking distance of Lahaina.
Great location and beautiful house
The house was great. We felt completely safe. It was clean and well kept. The kitchen was well stocked with utensils and pots and pans. The pool was clean and used everyday. The beach was just a short walk. The water was so warm compared to California :-) It was away from all the tourist so it was nice not having to search for a place to sit. Make sure to wear water shoes as there is coral in some areas. We saw some sea lions come to shore and after talking with the care taker found out they were endangered Monk Seals. How cool was that to see 2 of the approximately 1400 left in the wild. The only thing that could have been better was the upstairs air. The upstairs did not get very cold. Probably because the afternoon sun was hot on that side of the house. The onsite care takers were friendly and made sure we had everything we needed. They respected our privacy and let us know they were there if we needed anything. If we go back to Maui we would love to stay here again.
Lovely home. Upstairs was too warm most nights. Doris & Tory were very helpfull & friendly.
Loved staying there. Pool was wonderful. Everything was provided. We all enjoyed our time there. Loved meeting Doris & Tory and owner, Susan McCasland, couldn't have been nicer.
Walking distance to historic Lahaina Town and Banyan Tree Park. 32 historic sites including the old Prison, original Court house, library, Banyan Tree Park. Many of our guests love to stay on our property and do Yoga near the pond and waterfall, relax near the pool or pick fruit from the many fruit trees.
