Heaven on the 5th floor

  • 5 of 5

This turned out to be the most relaxing vacation ever.

Toured a few areas around the island. The West side one day and the South side the next. both very tourist oriented and enjoyable. Lot of shopping, dining, and activities.

Also enjoyed relaxing and sunning at the beautiful pool both day and night. BBQ facilities right at the pool are awesome and so clean. Picnic benches at the pool are awesome and what a view.

Thank you, we will return!

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.
