About Ron Gess

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

Why Ron Gess chose Maui

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.

Fantastic condo and great location!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I throughly enjoyed our recent stay in this wonderful condo. It was clean, spacious, and quiet. The location is great - convenient and central, but not too busy/touristy. We loved cooking in the large kitchen and eating out on the oceanfront lanai. Nothing like having your morning coffee while listening to the ocean and watching the sun rise! Another perk is the "natural" air conditioning from the strong trade winds in Maalaea - the condo stayed nice and cool day and night. It was great having a washer and dryer in the unit for cleaning clothes after beach days, muddy hikes, etc. All in all we found Ron & Shirley's condo to be a very special place and we feel lucky to have stayed there!

Our Third stay .

  • 5 of 5

This was the third time we rented Ron & Shirley's Milowai 203 apt. The great success of past stays allowed us to rent Milowai 203 without the usual canvasing of alternate properties.Once again we enjoyed the quality amenities that the Apt. provides including location, furnishings & a dynamic view of the ocean south to the Makena area.

An analysis of the many Testamonials provides confidence that Milowai 203 is a quality rental. We agree.

Wonderful relaxing area!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was clean and perfect for the two of us. Ron had a bottle of wine and bag of coffee waiting for us which was so appreciated. The view of the ocean from our lanai was excellent and we could watch for whales which we did see! The shore line in front of the condo is frequented by sea turtles and at times there were a dozen turtles having a turtle party!! What fun to watch! The beach is a few blocks away but then you can walk the beach forever and it is a quiet beach. We so enjoyed the quiet beach after the busy beach we had been on. We snorkeled on the beach and swam with a sea turtle! We loved the quiet harbor location of the condo. We had a late flight out and Ron allowed us to have a late check out which was so appreciated. It allowed us to have a relaxing perfect day for our last day in Maui. We loved this condo and location more than the busier resort on Kannapallii beach. I would recommend this condo to anyone looking for a quiet relaxing area with a beautiful long beach to walk on.

loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We booked our trip far in advanced based on reading the reviews from this site. The reviews defiantly speak for themselves. we loved our stay here. our bags did not arrive and we had lots of hassle with that, it was great to be able to walk into this place. everything set up for an easy check in, the room was very clean, the cookies and the bottle of wine was an awesome addition (we defiantly needed it after dealing with the airline company). We highly recommend this place. we went to other island and stayed in other places and my husband and we agree that this place was the was a great way to start off our trip to hawaii! it was in a great location, away from the noise, had an amazing view, could watch crabs on the beach/rocks, and even saw turtles. the location is Great!!! We are hoping to return sometime in the near future. Thank you Ron for such a great experience!!

What a trip !!!

  • 5 of 5

We had booked our trip plenty in advance based on reading the reviews of how Ron and Shirley were so accommodating. Well I can say the reviews speak for themselves. We had mentioned we had a young daughter in the emails before our arrival. When we walked in the apartment there were sand toys, goggles, boogie boards and of course a bottle of wine and coffee. We had all the inside info on where to rent cars cheap or whatever events we were planning to participate in. We found the unit to be very clean, and could see the whales from our balcony. The location in the bay was perfect. It was in the middle of lahaina and Walea making it easy to travel and get anywhere on the island. Our flight out was changed leaving us with a later departure than originally expected. Ron allowed us extra time to check out to accommodate us. We couldnt be be happier with our experience in Maui. Thanks so much Ron. We will definately be sharing our experience with friends and hoping to be back soon.

Just as described

  • 5 of 5

We have just had 4 nights at Ron & Shirley's condo at Milowai and it was just as it was described in the promoting advertising.

The co so was fitted out with everything we needed and working on doing the booking was so easy and seamless for us from Australia .

The wine and coffee was much appreciated and the area the condo is in is quieter than some others but it it worked for us.

Great value for money and would recommend this condo and owner to anyone
