“Maui made easy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 July 2014

This B & B is situated in West Maui, on the north side of Lahaina, only minutes from town or to the resort beaches at Kaanapali. The coral-colored building with lush green landscape makes for a delightful place to eat a delicious breakfast with homemade granola, yogurt, hardboiled egg, homemade mango bread, other sweetbreads, and fresh fruits. Jeri, our hostess, was welcoming and helpful with advice for activities and sights to see. Beach towels, boogie boards, beach chairs, and other beach things were available to borrow. She even loans a CD for the drive to Hana.
We had been told by friends at home that the drive from the airport would take more than an hour to Lahaina, but it never took us more than 40 minutes.
It's a quiet and peaceful setting. We had enjoyable breakfast chats with couples from various states in the US and from European countries who have discovered this lovely place to stay.
We highly recommend you stay at Garden Gate on your next trip to Maui.

This is a clean & very charming home with fabulous views from the upper floor. We only stayed one night, but I would have loved to have stayed longer. The hosts are gracious and kind and you can tell they love their home. Breakfast was delicious and plentiful. And Coco (adorable pup) and the kitty made it feel like a true home away from home. It's nice to be so close to Lahaina town, yet not in the midst of the hustle.

Jeri helped us with reservations for dinner, recommendations on activities and restaurants months before and during our stay in Lahaina. She prepared breakfast to go for us on the day we left by 6:30AM on the road to Hana. Very generously, she also kept our luggage safe, such that we were able to take only the essentials to Hana, where we camped outdoors for a few days. She provided us with beach towels and snorkeling equipment as well as beach chairs and umbrellas free of charge and also allowed my daughter to take with her a novel she picked up at the B&B. The rooms were clean and modern. While she is not often physically around during the day, she is readily reachable on her cell phone. We definitely plan to return when back in Maui!

I'm going to start this review by saying that the game plan for my vacation with my wife was to save money on the flight and lodging to spend on activities. I would say that staying at Garden Gate allowed us to successfully accomplish our game plan. It offers basic accommodations in a popular area of the island. The following are strengths and opportunities.

Strengths:
It is a simple inn located in Lahaina, which is central to many of Maui's best beaches and activities. The breakfasts were simple continental meals with breads/pastries, hard boiled eggs, juice and yogurt - enough to get you on a good start to the day. The rooms with Ocean views do indeed have nice views. The Inn has beach towels and other beach gear (i.e. chairs/umbrellas) for you to borrow free of charge. Lastly, Jeri was very helpful with her suggestions on beaches and other activities like the luaus. Also, the hosts prepared breakfasts for us to take with us on our early morning excursions, which was really nice.

Opportunity Areas:
This is more of an Inn vs. other true B&B's my wife and I have stayed (see Marjorie's Inn Kauai). Rooms are basic (a bit dated) but comfortable and fairly clean. This is not the type of place where you will stay to be in the room all day. This is a nice "crash pad" to enable you to go on your way and enjoy the island's many activities.

There are a few other things that took Garden Gate down from a "very good" to "average" for us. The main host leaves after a certain hour, leaving her in-laws in charge. They are not as welcoming or as helpful as the main host. The little details are often unclear/missing (i.e. where to park when you arrive, where to put towels if you want them to be changed out in your room, how far in advance to request an early morning breakfast).

You will save money on the room, parking and breakfast vs. a resort. However, if you want more of a traditional B&B or resort-like experience, I would specifically seek that out elsewhere.

Room Tip: Stay in the island or ocean view room if you decide to stay here.

Upon arrival we were lucky enough to be upgraded to the "Ocean View" room (if it isn't booked I HIGHLY recommend it) and our experience at the Garden Gate B&B only improved from there.

One tip I would say is breakfast is not served on Sundays. Everyone definitely deserves a day off, we just weren't fully aware of that until we arrived.

The hosts and owners are incredibly helpful and approachable. They were willing to consider our desired itinerary when it came to the check - out time and proved to be extremely accommodating despite the fact that they were fully booked.

Overall we had a very peaceful and enjoyable stay here. For anyone looking to unwind within walking distance of the touristy areas...this is the perfect place!

Hawaiian music starts to play inviting guests to come grab a bite to eat. Steve is visiting with guests providing insightful information on best of Maui. Coco, a sweet little dog wonders around looking for hand outs and inviting pets. You settle into your chair and take in the quiet and cozy, lush green patio. You chat with lovely folks from all over the world, if you feel like chatting. After finishing your fresh fruit and Jerry's homemade banana bread, you grab your belongings and select your beach gear that the B & B graciously supplies. You pick out your beach chair, umbrella, snorkel gear and cooler. Steve is likely around in the yard wishing you a great day. On your way to the beach you discuss how great it would be to have Steve as a relative so you could be rest assured you would see him in the future.

We stayed in the Lanai room and think it was the best room of all at the B & B.

If we go back to Maui, hands down were staying here!
