Great location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Island Sands 510 for 2 weeks in November. Really enjoyed the central and quiet location. The condo had everything we needed and it was very clean. We had a little problem with the TV and Ron was there to fix it immediately. The view from the balcony is great. We enjoyed our trip to Maui and hope to return! Thank you! Fred and Lynn

Nice Condo- Good experience

  • 4 of 5

Stayed at this condo August 10-12, 2017. Several great things; (1) Location is next to the Ocean, you hear the waves, and see the turtles swimming near the shore as well. (2) All basic requirements for comfortable living are filled, kitchen items are there and we used to have breakfast in the condo before leaving out on both days.(3) One bedroom with Queen bed, and one pullout sofa which is decent for two people, preferably one child and one adult who is not oversized. (4) Internet speed is very good, especially with the wired internet. Wifi is okay as well. (5) Apartment has been upgraded, was an older unit one can tell. It is on 5th floor (6) Parking is included. However, no eating place in walking distance- you need a car. But who comes to Maui to stay inside the apartment. Go out and enjoy, and come back and sleep here in a clean, nice condo.

What a month!

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent four weeks in Maui, staying at Ron Gess' beautiful Island Sands condo in Maalaea. The view from the condo cannot be beaten - the sound of the waves, the rustle of the coconut trees, the turtles feeding right below you and the humpback whales putting on their shows further out. The welcoming wine and coffee left for us after arriving just before midnight was a great touch, and when we asked if there was a floor fan available, Ron went out and bought a new one and delivered it that afternoon. What service! The condo has everything you'd have at home and the bed is so comfortable my husband didn't get up most mornings until nine! We love Maalaea because it doesn't have the hustle and bustle of Kihei itself, but still has Sugar Beach with miles and miles of wonderful walking and splashing along in the surf. We'll definitely return to this beautiful place.

Great central Maui condo

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our 4 days at Ron's condo... which is just the right size and location for a couple visiting all that Maui has to offer but on a bit of a budget. Condo is up on the 5th floor facing the Maalaea Bay, with sweeping and private balcony view of Haleakala volcano and the expansive bay. We loved just opening the balcony sliding door to hear the waves crashing. You are as close as you can get to the water. Island Sands is an easy short walk to Haycraft Park in one direction, with its access to the soft sandy beach that runs the entire length of the huge bay (there is a tiny spit of sand in front of the condo, but otherwise rocky). Ron's condo has quite a few beach essentials on the balcony- beach chairs, boogie boards etc. (good call Ron!). It poured rain our first two days, and thus the water our front was murky from the stream runoff (go find a 100 other beaches... its Maui after all!). An easy walk in the other direction down the quiet street is the Maui Aquarium- an excellent and worthwhile point of interest, especially if the weather doesn't cooperate.

Maalaea is centrally located on the island for equivalent access to tourist items on the north, west or southeast. Condo is just as pictured in the accurate photos - nice bathroom, kitchen, fast wifi internet, large TVs. Only negative item we noted was that bedroom wall is up against the outside walkway, with standard Hawaiian glass vents floor to ceiling- unfortunately, these really seal and thus don't block out the noise. Early morning voices outside and the first jets on approach to OGG woke us up much too early twice out of the four mornings. I noticed some other condo owners have replaced these glass vent slats with sealed glass blocks... but a small price to pay for a solid, quality Maui oceanfront condo for a couple looking for easy access to all island options, but wanting fantastic views to start and end the day.

Ron was incredibly responsive, easy to work with, and went out of his way to surprise us with some thoughtful welcome items. Very recommended and would return.
