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.

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.


Excellent! 4.7/5 -

Maalaea Getaway

  • 4 of 5

We recently returned from our stay in this condo unit. We love staying in Maalaea we enjoyed the view from the lanai immensely. Ron was very responsive before & right up to arrival & I have no doubts that had we encountered any issues during our stay he would have responded to those quickly as well. While the whales had not yet arrived, we found using the lounge chairs on the lawn looking out onto the ocean as our preferred way to get our sunning in. Mahalo Ron for the use of your unit.

Great view and location, super host

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at Ron's condo and really enjoyed it. The view was a highlight as we faced East and were able to watch the sunrise every day which made for a great way to start each day. The location, between Kihei and Laihaina, was very handy - made getting around simple though there's very little in Maalaea itself. Some people feel Maalaea is too windy but I didn't find it to be a problem - it definitely helped keep the unit comfortable.

Ron was also a very responsive, helpful host throughout our stay. There was an issue with the dishwasher not working and Ron had someone come and fix it within 24 hours (on a Saturday).

For travellers who want to explore as much as Maui as possible I found the unit to be a really good solution.

Awesome location in Maalaea in Maui!

  • 5 of 5

Sea turtles from the back yard! From start to finish we truly enjoyed our honeymoon thanks to this property. We were looking for a "home base" for all of our activities that wasn't overly expensive, central to everything, and had great views. 3/3! Thanks to Ron we even got to enjoy our last day with extended check out.

Very good place to stay for your Maui vacation

  • 5 of 5

Thank you very much Ron and Shirley for our lovely stay at your vacation home.

We had an amazing time in Maui, a lot of which i contribute to the apartment itself.

The property is just just by the sea, with an amazing coastline and sea view and a "sea turtle party" happening almost everyday just by the shore. After 1 lovely breakfast with the sun rising and the sound of the sea in your ear all your daily stress inducers go away.

The apartment was clean and spacious, very neat, and all the essentials were there - we didn't need to wary about a thing.

The area is very quiet and peaceful, nearby there is one of the best seafood restaurants on Maui and its a 3 min walk to the Maui Ocean Center, where u can swim with the sharks. Only a 4 min walk to the harbor where u can rent your Molokini snorkeling trip.

Access from and to the airport by car takes about 10-15 minutes and is a very easy route.

Placed in the center of the island its a perfect base for you travels around Maui.

Thank you again for our lovely stay. We gladly recommend the place for everyone.

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.
