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.

Perfect for a Couple

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed Rons Condo. Our only regret is that we did not stay longer. The condo worked great for the two of us and I could also see it working out if we had one younger child too. I already miss the quiet, peaceful atmosphere and great evening breeze. Nearby beach is walkable as is a fun BBQ restaurant with live music, Beach Bums.

Amazing View

  • 4 of 5

I spent a week at this condo and it has one of the most amazing views off the lanai. It's a comfortable condo with fantastic (I mean fantastic) water pressure in the shower. It was nice to have a kitchen as there aren't many dining options in the area. The grounds are immaculate and the condo was clean when I arrived. The air conditioning doesn't reach the bedroom, so the near constant trade winds are needed to keep the room comfortable. The owner was quickly responsive when I had an issue with the dishwasher. He was also very accommodating when I departed as he let me stay in the condo until my flight. Overall I enjoyed my stay in the condo and still miss that gorgeous view.

Great Location, comfortable

  • 5 of 5

This property is in a convenient location close to restaurants and shops. In a short drive you can pretty much get anything you would need for your stay. The condo was very comfortable with all the luxuries of home. It was quiet, other than the morning wake up call by the near by rooster. Every evening we had about 6 to 8 sea turtles show up right in front of the complex. All though we didn't use the pool it looked clean and well maintained. The view of Haleakalā was a very nice bonus every morning and evening. The grounds were very clean and well maintained. I would recommend this property to any couple that is staying on Maui. You wont regret it.

Maui Feb 2017

  • 3 of 5

We enjoyed the Maalaea area of Maui where Ron's condo is located. The condo grounds were well kept, the building is tired. The unit does have a beautiful view and it was relaxing to whale watch, turtle watch, as well as watch the local fishermen that came daily to fish the area coastline. We had a couple of issues and Ron was quick to respond. Having stayed at other Maui VRBO's over the years, the bar was set high and unfortunately we were not overly impressed with this rental. Yes, the price was a drawing feature but if we were to do it over, we'd pay the little bit extra and stay elsewhere. We left some suggestions and it is hoped they will consider them. General, low cost maintenance/upgrades that could easily make a visit more comfortable and pleasant. We did not let the negatives outweigh the positives of our vacation and absolutely recommend a Maui visit!

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.
