“Good value in Maui”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2012

This property is located on the North end of Lahaina, in an average residential neighborhood. You will need a car, which you will probably already have anyway if you are traveling to Maui. It is a very comfortable accommodation - clean and spacious (in certain rooms), but not luxurious. To my surprise, there is no pool but it is very close to the ocean and beaches. Steve, the owner, is very knowledgeable about restaurants and other facts about the island - and is happy to share. They offer beach towels, chairs, and older snorkel equipment at no addtional cost which is a nice perk.

Room Tip: Request an Ocean View room. It will cost more than the others but still not very expensive for HI a...

Thanks to our hosts Steve and Jeri, we had a very good stay at Garden Gate B&B. We are regular customers of such establishement in different part of the world and we will keep a very good souvenir of this place. We do recommand it.

Rooms (we had 2 in 2 different weeks) were clean, spacious and comfortable. The breakfast, a selection of fresh fruits and pastries, was perfect.

Steve was very generous of his time and advices for good beaches, fun activities and indication for a good part of the island.

Jeri made all the arrangements for our 2 booking, making sure we would not have to move from one room to another too often. She made reservation for us at the Luau show and she relayed all messages of different tourism organization trying to reach us while we were lost somewhere on some beaches (we had given Garden Gate phone # as a back up).

We thank them for everything.

Don't be fooled by the appearance of the neighbourhood. Garden Gate is a very niçe and quiet place to stay.

Room Tip: No pools but, hey, beach are walking distance. No fitness center but, hey, you can WALK to the beac...

Thank you Robin for such a great time!

My friend and I took a trip to Sturgeon Bay in Sept 2012 and we decided to stay @ Garden Gate B&B because of all the great reviews we found on this site. It was our first time staying @ a B&B and it was wonderful!

Overall, the house was beautiful. Very historic and lots of character to it. The bedrooms were clean and decorated very nicely. Robin was so incredibly accommodating, we were blown away by the service she provides her guest.

In the morning, the breakfast was delicious. Robin got everyone's food just right. I'm a vegetarian, and she made sure not to give me any ham in my food. She is so friendly and warm, I would definitely go back to see her again, but next time it would be with my significant other! :)

Thank you Robin for such a wonderful stay!

This B&B is a lovely, quiet oasis in a residential neighborhood across the main road from bustling downtown Lahaina. It was convenient to shopping and the Old Lahaina Lua (book this early). We had an ocean view King suite, and it was a beautiful, spacious, and spotless room. Our hosts were extremely helpful with advice and getting us reservations for things we wanted to do. It was a really nice touch to have the beach paraphenalia (beach chairs, towels, coolers) available for borrowing, so you can truly feel at "home" when a visitor to Maui!

This place is highly recommended from us. It is a quite place with good distance to downown and to the beaches (only couple of minutes to drive).
It is very beautiful at the B&B aswell. The owner's is the best couple ever, they gave us all the infomation we needed and even moore! They helped us with everything we needed and you can borrow stuff like snorkel gear, cooler etc from them.
We stayed in the small room and it was good. Very clean room. Maui is such a beautiful island so you will spend all your time exploring that is why the small room was good enough for us.
If you want a good stay to live at very nice people you should definitely choose this B&B.
This was our start on our honeymoon and it started GREAT! Thank you very much Steve and Jeri for your kindness and sharing good memories. Much love from the swedish couple

Very nice and out of the way helpful hosts especially when it came to recommendations or borrowing things from the main house. Pretty good property location in relation to downtown lahaina (5 min drive out of residential neighborhood).
The surroundings were quiet but there were some real noise issues in the room. Let me caveat that I am sensitive to these thing but there were problems. The refrigerator was loud to the point that I would have unplugged it if the defrost wouldn't have made a mess. The a/c was very loud. Lots of rattling which I was partially able to fix by adjusting the front plate. Even the fan overhead made more noise than it should have.
The room was clean and had some space but things were fine, not "nice". Just about at expectations for a moderately priced b&b.
The mattress felt old and VERY soft so if you like a firm mattress beware.
Really nitpicking here but the outlets were very loose which mean iPhone chargers slipped out or would not close the circuit so we had some charging issues.
Toilet ran and owner gave it attention after the issue was brought up.
Easy policy around beach wares was good.
While wifi was advertised it did not work in our room only the common areas and we were cautioned that sometimes it doesnt even work at all.
They have a very nice dog that does not bark or get overexcited around guests.
Pretty property with plenty of parking.

This B&B was everything that we hoped for. No worries about our early check-in, the owner were there and got us our room that was just being cleaned right away. First we stayed at the cheapest smallest room that, however, had everything that we needed. For our last two nights we got upgraded to the most expensive room with a sunset above the ocean view right from the bed and jacuzzi in the bathroom. That one was a real bliss. Both rooms were clean and tidy. Breakfast (fruit, pastry, coffee and POG) was at 9 AM which, for us, was the only real downside (too late for us). Thanks to the location in Lahaina, which is a very beautiful town, every major trip except surfing and snorkeling started and ended with a 40 minute drive to/from the center of the island and therefore the breakfast would be better at, for example, 7 AM, but that is, of course, not the Aloha way. Nevertheless, whenever we needed to go out earlier (Ziplining, Road to Hana), we just asked for a breakfast to go and we got it, no problem there. Jeri's Mango bread and Banana bread were amazing! Both the owners were very helpful in planning our Maui activities. Thank you for a wonderful week!

Room Tip: Definitely worth paying extra for the Oceanview Suite. Otherwise, all the rooms are OK.
