A wonderful modern unit on Maalaea Bay with a beautiful ocean view that was recently renovated with all new kitchen, bathroom, floor surfaces and furniture.
The oceanfront pool is a wonderful place to spend the day followed by a wonderful evening and dinner at the outdoor gas barbecues. Unit has a gorgeous ocean view for relaxing during those evening hours.
Maalaea village is a small ocean front community where you can easily walk to all levels of dining, shops, ocean front activities, and a beautiful gold sand crescent beach.
Unit is equipped with premium cable television plus free high speed WiFi Internet to keep in touch with the rest of the world.
Ron and Shirley Gess Have lived on Maui for over 30 years. Shirley is a registered nurse at our local hospital and Ron operates a commercial cleaning company. We have a 28 year old daughgter who is also a registered nurse. We live in Wailuku and enjoy welcoming people to our island home. We have an advantage on taking care of our guests as we are here on the island and can insure our unit has all the details that will make your vacation special. Shirley routinely checks the unit and make sure it is fully equipped. We look forward to serving you.
Ron Gess purchased this condo in 1989
This is a very beautiful area as it is on a quiet dead end road and is very centrally located. Maalaea is 20 minute from Wailea, 20 minutes from Lahaina, and 12 minutes from the Kahului airport. The community is right on the ocean and right next to a very quaint harbor giving it a special feeling compared to some of the Monster hotels.
I recently spent 6 day staying here, and could not have been happier. Maalea is nice and quiet, not really a hub for tourists, but has just enough content to make it work. The view from this condo is wonderful, especially at sunrise, looking across the bay and watching the surf. There is a great little section just outside by the harbor breakwall that is good for kids to play in, or in the pool which is very well maintained, just like all of the Milowai property. At the other end of the street is a public park, with a long section of beach good for spotting sea turtles, or just relaxing. The location is ideal, since you can be anywhere on the island in under 45 minutes. As for the condo itself, there are lots of little things that made it great. If u need a corkscrew, you'll find one, boogie board for the beach, in the closet, beach chairs, on the deck, beach towels, in the closet, tour guide on the end table. The list goes on and on, Ron & Shirly Gess have added alot of extras that my friends who stayed a few condos down the street, and paid alot more for, were missing. Having a safe in the room came in handy as well, not that it seemed necessary, but i like to lock things up. Just take a picture on your phone of the combination instructions for reference. This condo has alot to offer, and i found my stay very comfortable. I would recommend going grocery shopping before you get there outside of Maalea, as the gereral store has a very limited selection and is a bit pricey. If i were going back to Maui I would not hesitate to book this condo again, it was a great stay in a wonderful place. Aloha!
We so enjoyed our first visit to Maui! The condo is a perfect central location. Quiet, peaceful & lovely setting. The amenities were fantastic, we had everything we needed. Ron was right to tell us "all we needed were swimsuits"! The sea turtles showed up every evening around 3:00 pm in the harbor ...so entertaining! Can't wait to go back. Mahalo
This was a great place to relax and get away from work. Different area of Maui I had not stayed before. Quiet and peaceful. Would definitely stay here again.
I'm a business owner who came to Maui for business and decided to stay a few extra days. I've been to Hawaii many times before and I was REALLY in need of some peace & quiet in a beautiful setting and this condo was EXACTLY what I wanted and more. Ron & Shirley had everything ready for me. All I had to do was drop my bags and I instantly felt right at home. The views are spectacular and setting is so relaxing you'll never want to leave!! A special treat last night....I was sitting by the sea wall when a group of huge sea turtles decided to come and play in the water. I would highly recommend this unit to anyone looking for a peaceful and beautiful stay in Maui. If you have a car, it's centrally located from the airport to Lahina to Kihei. If you don't have a car, the harbor village provides everything you'd need for a stay of a few days. I highly recommend Jill's daily specials for lunch at the TradeWinds general store next door. Her food is delicious and reasonable. There's no reason to leave the area....just sit on your lanai and soak in some of the best views you'd find anywhere on the island. Wireless internet was a big thing for me and it worked flawlessly. I would definitely come back here and stay again. It's fabulous...overlooking the pool and the ocean with a backdrop of verdant mountains. What more could anyone want?
The owners were very friendly and easy to get in contact with. Some things, like the balcony lawn chairs, had to be wiped down - but not a big deal. Everything else was super clean and ready to use when we arrived. It was also easy to check-out and no additional cleaning needed. We loved our stay and location was the best! Being right in the center of Maui allowed us to easily travel to Hana, Lahaina, and Kihei (all the places you need to visit!) Other pluses were the elevator, free internet, cable, full kitchen, laundry, the view, and parking spot.
Wonderful is not a good enough word to use for our experience in Maui. The condo had everything that we needed. Easy walking to fine restaurants and entertainment. Sea turtles swim all day in the ocean in front of the condo. Also saw eagle rays gliding through the surf. :) It felt like we had the pool and ocean to ourselves. We miss Maui already. The one problem is we keep bragging about our trip and condo to all of our friends. Now they want this site address to schedule their next trip. We have decided to share and give this rental our highest mark A+.
