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.

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.

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.
