When they gonna fix those roads in upcountry Maui? 
Ask the Mayor!
That was a question for the Mayor of Maui and his answer is in the Maui News.
---> The improvements are coming soon - on some roads that really need it: Upper Kauhikoa Rd and Kaluanui Rd in Haiku.
We look forward to better driving conditions in Haiku, Makawao, and Pukalani.

Let's see what new listings came on the market and were available to show this month in the Maui Upcountry Realtor Caravan.  It was a small event this month, with only 4 properties to preview in Pukalani, priced from $669,000 to $895,000.  This region of Upcountry is unique in that you can still find plenty of housing options priced under $1,000,000.

makawao: Olinda Maui - what's for sale in this upcountry area? - 04/28/18 08:05 PM
What's for sale right now in Olinda Maui?
Olinda is a region of upcountry Maui that's located above the town of Makawao.  If you drive up Olinda Road from the crossroads with Makawao Ave. you'll go up past the Oskie Rice rodeo grounds and Seabury Hall campus.  It's a delightful drive along a winding road that climbs higher and higher amidst towering eucalyptus trees and open pastures. At the very top is the Waihou Spring Forest Reserve with hiking trails through the pine trees.  The road then turns back down and becomes Piiholo Road which eventually comes back to Makawao Ave. by … (4 comments)

makawao: What's so great about the Kula 200 neighborhood? - 10/31/17 02:44 PM
Kula 200 is one of the premiere neighborhoods in Upcountry Maui, situated where Pukalani meets Kula, and technically it's in Pukalani but it sure feels more like Kula.  Street names in Kula 200 include: Aulii Drive; Aulii Place; Poha Place; Lealea Place; Hoopalua Drive; Welina Place and Alokele Place.

Lots of space:  This subdivision was created in the 1970's as an Agricultural subdivision to allow owners to build a house and cottage on a few acres.  It's well thought out with underground utilities and winding roads which give it a nice country feeling.  You can see goats grazing and lot of mature … (2 comments)

Makawao Maui - 6 month residential market update October 2017 
What's been selling in Makawao, in the upcountry region of Maui?  This report highlights sales activity from the past 6 months.  In our MLS system, Makawao includes the village of Haliimaile, and the Olinda area above town.  First I'll give the general statistics, then I'll narrow it down to just the homes in Makawao town. 
Sold in greater Makawao in past 6 months:

makawao: Aloe trees growing in Kula Maui Hawaii - 04/20/17 05:29 PM
I've often seen these strange looking trees growing in Kula Maui and wondered what they were, until I learned they are members of the aloe family.  You can find them growing upcountry in the cooler climates such as Kula and Makawao. 
Apparently you can grow them easily from a cutting that's been allowed to dry out for a week or two first.  They prefer a dry well drained soil on a slope, which explains why they like the Kula region.

This month we had another great Realtor event showing off some new upcountry listings in Makawao and Pukalani.  I love that the prices in this area are usually not over $1M.  This month a listing in Olinda broke that barrier though.

makawao: Agave plants growing well in upcountry Maui Hawaii - 01/22/17 05:00 PM
Did you know agave plants grow on Maui? 
I was quite surprised to see this field planted with agave while viewing a large estate for sale in upcountry Maui Hawaii.  Why not grow agave plants?  They seem to be doing well and probably don't need a lot of water and maintenance.  Maybe this crop could be planted in the central valley where the sugar cane used to grow.... organic Maui tequila could be huge!

Makawao and Pukalani Maui - Realtor Caravan listings Dec 2015
How refreshing it was to see the 4 new listings featured on the December Realtor Caravan this month. Fidelity Title sponsors our weekly events that cover the north shore, and Upcountry Maui. With nothing over $540,000 it was a stark contrast to the Paia/Haiku December caravan the previous week where nothing was under $1M.  You really can't beat this part of the island when it comes to affordable housing with a friendly small town atmosphere.

Fresh Smoked Pork from Makawao - a roadside treat
If you're looking for some fresh smoked pork, made from wild mountain pigs, look for this sign across from St. Joseph's Church in Makawao, Upcountry Maui.  Lucky me I spotted the sign today and pulled over.  For $20 I got a nice 2 pound bag with lots of smoky greasy strips of pork.  The flavor is so good, with natural smoke and other seasonings. Straight from the mountain, into the smoker, and onto my table... I like that.  This is how we do "sustainable food" on Maui.
