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 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.

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!!

Can't wait to go back!!!!

  • 5 of 5

The Lahaina Gatehouse is absolutely stunning! It is the perfect home away from home in Maui! The pool is beautiful and the house has everything anyone would ever need to stay for a vacation. It's a short walk to the beach too. The Gatehouse is comfy and private. 8 of us girls stayed and we fit in the house perfectly. The best part - our amazing Hostess and now friend, Lisa. What a wonderful House Manager and Concierge. Lisa made our trip and she actually lives on site. Did we see her much? No - wow! She is good at keeping to herself except when she got a text from us. We loved having her nearby and she was always super prompt on the occasional - eek! - we need paper towels (or something). Whatever we needed showed up at our front door in a matter of minutes. We had the perfect stay and did some amazing things because Lisa knew where we should go, when and included directions. Thank you, Lisa, for an amazing 6 days that I had. I don't think any of us will forget our time at the Gatehouse. I know the 2 weeks my friends had were magical! Can't wait to see you again! Aloha and Mahalo! Note: the house has pool toys, BBQ, bikes, kayaks, scooters, boogie boards, etc. The pictures absolutely do it justice!!

This house has it all for a "Family Retreat"

  • 5 of 5

In May of 2015 we were horrified to learn a 10 year old family member had AML, (Acute Myeloid Leukemia). The entire family sprang to action and stayed with our niece around the clock for 7 months while going through treatment at Dorhnbecker Hospital in Portland. Just before Thanksgiving she was pronounced "cancer free"! Best Thanksgiving ever. One of the things we told her about to keep her spirits up was going to Hawaii to swim with turtles and bask in the sun around a pool with people she loved, her family. Boy did we need this RETREAT! Many of the family had never been to Hawaii. We arrived at the immaculate house on a beautiful day. Took about 5 minutes for the kids to "hit the pool"! Lisa, the property manager brought a huge blow up turtle, so we did "swim with the turtles" right in the pool. Luckily they shared, there were many toys to play with. Everyone of us enjoyed the pool every day!!! In the morning we would gather outside by the pool, listen to the birds sing and enjoy the lush vegetation. After coffee and conversation, most would head off to Lahaina to poke around the shops. We walked up for Whale Watch tour Lisa helped us book, and hit all the fun restaurants right on the water. We were enjoying the house/pool so much we had to force ourselves out for adventures: Road to Hanna, Ocean Center, Luau, Maui Plantation Tour. After days of adventure we tucked back into comfy beds and had plenty of room to spread out. Some watched TV, but most of us stayed around the pool. We prepared half our meals at the house and the kitchen had everything from rice cooker to blender. Every person in our family came away healed, refreshed and closer because the house was comfortable, breezy with all the fans, and large enough to accommodate 12 of us.

Incredible house, amazing location, and great value!

  • 5 of 5

You won't want anything more than this house when visiting Lahaina. It is the perfect place to stay!

Location wise: You can walk to the beach and bike to anywhere in town

House wise: The house is in immaculate shape. It has every amenity you could want. The pool is wonderful, the outdoor space is huge and well laid out, the master bathroom has 2 shower heads, kitchen is great for cooking, and basically every room has a TV (not that you need them in Lahaina).

They have bikes, snorkeling gear, beach toys and umbrellas, surfboards, and everything else you would want/need to rent all for free when you stay.

You'll feel safe inside the gate of the house and the onsite property manager makes it so easy to get anything you need or lack. Lisa is awesome!

Just book here and save yourself the headache and the bore of staying in a resort. Feel like a local and really soak in Lahaina!
