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.

upcountry maui: Beautiful plumeria flowers seen in upcountry Maui - 11/13/17 02:30 PM
These beautiful plumeria flowers were photographed in upcountry Maui - Makawao, Pukalani and Haiku.  They really bring a warm tropical feeling to any property, with their delicate fragrance and soft petals.


Plumeria trees prefer a dry sandy soil and you'll see them growing in the sunny seaside towns as well.  Easy to grow from just a piece of broken branch stuck into the ground.  Strung into a lei, these flowers will brighten your day!

upcountry maui: 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!

upcountry maui: Halloween leftovers - horse skeleton at the polo match - 11/05/16 12:46 PM
Just going over some pics from last weekend and this was too good to pass up.  At the polo match in Pukalani Maui, this very skinny horse was spotted.  I guess it's a light eater, so cheap to keep. 
Luckily all the other horses were well tended and looking pretty sharp.

More pics from the polo field !

Get a great healthy lunch or cold drink at the Farmacy Health Bar in Pukalani Maui. This hip new restaurant at the Pukalani Terrace Center will serve you up some organic and locally sourced healthy food.  Pukalani Terrace has a good variety of places to eat and they'll let you sit outside on the sidewalk, which can be pleasant.  Not long ago Fat Burger was in this spot, but I guess they didn't last long.

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.

Sammy Hagar's Beach Bar Rum is made on Maui
Did you know Maui has a distillery in Haliimaile, a former pineapple plantation town?  They make rum and vodka here at the Haliimaile Distilling Company, using pineapples and sugar cane grown locally!  One of the products is Sammy Hagar's Beach Bar Rum. 
 

You can take a tour of the plant, and visit the tasting room/gift shop for some unique items. This can be a highlight of your visit to Haliimaile if you're stopping by the Hailiimaile General Store Restaurant.

Pukalani Maui - more EV charging stations now open
There's another new charging station for EV's (electric vehicles) on Maui, and this time it's upcountry at the Pukalani Terrace Center. It looks like there's room for 4 cars, but I didn't see anyone plugged in yet, probably because it's so new. We need to get word out!

Huge price reduction on 4 beautiful acres in Kula Maui HI
My sellers are ready to let this unique and lovely 4 acres go. Their loss will be somebody else's gain. With a huge price reduction of over $100,000 the phone is already ringing for this vacant lot.

980 Kamehameiki Road is now for sale for only $665,000 and that's a steal for 4 acres with a Maui County water meter, ocean views, and all usable land.  It's partly wooded and partly pasture, with an old home and a few other weathered structures.

JOES KULA AUTO at Historic Calasa Garage, Kula Maui Hawaii
When you live in upcountry Maui you're going to need a good old fashioned service station once in a while and there's not many to choose from. I know many of us still refer to the place as Calasa's, since it's been here a long time and that was the original name. Anyway, when you have to get your car "safety'd" in a hurry, you can save yourself the drive down to Kahului and get it done at Joes.  They are quick and efficient and you'll soon be on your way. … (4 comments)

upcountry maui: Kula True Value Hardware - Upcountry Maui Hawaii - gas, hardware and garden - 03/06/08 01:13 PM

KULA TRUE VALUE HARDWARE in the upcountry town of Kula Maui is a great place to buy your gas or pick up some things for the home.  They try to keep their gas prices competetive and it's usually a little cheaper than most other stations.  Besides, there aren't many other stations in this rural area.
The garden center and nursery has lots of selection including bedding plants, pots of bamboo, hanging baskets and fruit trees suited to the higher elevations of upcountry Maui...an area known for it's agricultural bounty.
They are located at 3100 Lower Kula Road, Kula Maui HI 96790

upcountry maui: Pukalani Country Club - a Maui Golf Course for locals in Hawaii - 01/18/08 09:48 PM
 
Pukalani Country Club is located in upcountry Maui, on the slopes of Haleakala, where it's a little cooler.  If you're driving up Haleakala Highway, take the Old Haleakala Highway exit and then take a right at Pukalani Terrace Shopping Center.  Tha's Pukalani Street... drive all the way to the end and there's the golf club, at 360 Pukalani St. Pukalani HI 96768.  It's a public golf course with reasonable fees.  My dad likes to play here because he's cheap, and he doesn't want to pay the high fees at the resorts down in Wailea and Makena.

upcountry maui: Hanzawa Store - Kaupakalua Road - Haiku Maui Hawaii - 12/01/07 08:23 PM

When you're driving around Maui, in Haiku, you'll sooner or later find yourself driving the twisting mountain spine of Kaupakalua Road, the main artery between the upcountry town of Makawao, and the Hana Highway starting point of the historic Millenium Trail.  Going up or down, there aren't many pit stops along the way, and it's really great to come across Hanzawa's, an old fashioned country store.
Hanzawa's Store serves a large community of people in the countryside, from Haiku to Makawao.  It's the only gas station and store for miles around.  Is it any wonder they do a thriving business, selling gas, hot dogs and cold drinks, beer, milk and … (4 comments)

upcountry maui: Hit and Run Drive-By Shooting on Maui - 11/21/07 01:00 PM

Random MAUI Scenes taken from the car while driving
Okay I admit it's a dramatic title, but this is just a quick post with some drive-by pictures of some Maui scenes.  I always hate to take pics out the car window, but sometimes you get lucky and they're not too bad.  That's a view of the ocean close to Mama's Fish House. 
Makawao Town in upcountry Maui has some great old buildings.  And of course, there's always those beautiful rainbows over the sugar cane fields while driving into Paia on the north shore.
