Upcountry Maui real estate videos, Makawao and PukalaniI've posted about these on my MauiHunter blog, but want to share them here for more exposure.  Just some short videos showing some of the Upcountry Maui real estate for sale. I like to keep them short so I'm not wasting anyone's time!  It will take less than a minute! The Cottages at Kulamalu is a nice little condo townhouse development in a newer part of Pukalani - Kulamalu Town Center - which is still developing with more shops and housing being built.   Makawao Uplands. 72 Kapuahi St... A nice water feature in the yard of a Makawao house for sale.  Loved the location which was very private and backs up to a gulch making it even more private.

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 the St. Joseph's Cemetery.  It's about a 10.5 mile round trip that only takes a half hour or so.  You'll see beautiful scenery and vistas, and some amazing homes and country estates.Go trail riding in Olinda Maui...

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!Thanks for reading my Maui blog...Buying or selling real estate on Maui?  That's what I do.  Let me help YOU.Georgie Hunter R(S) e-Pro, Hawai'i Life Real Estate Brokers127 Hana Hwy. #G, Paia HI 96779E-mail or call/text: 808 283-0635 Save

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!Find a home for sale in Makawao Maui HawaiiAgave plants growing in Upcountry MauiBoutique farming is a way to make agriculture pay off on this small island.  The land is expensive here, so the rewards need to be high too.

Best on Maui.  One of the best places in upcountry Maui for dancing would be Casanova Restaurant in Makawao, right on the corner of Baldwin Ave. and Makawao Ave. 1188 Makawao Ave.  Call them at: 808 572-0220History:  It all started in 1986 with the Casanova Deli which was a bit hit and soon expanded into the full restaurant next door in 1989.  Authentic Italian food and coffee was just what this area needed. This building has been around a long time, and was the USO for marines during World War II.  Previous incarnations of the restaurant include Club Rodeo, and Piero's Restaurant. My very first job on Maui was serving drinks and food here in 1980!Hours:  The Deli is open daily from 7:30 - 5:30.  Lunch is served in the main restaurant from 11:30 - 2:00 and closed on Wednesdays and Sunda...

Just a quick trip with the Hipstamatic Camera app as we walk through Makawao Maui Hawaii. This cool little town has kept in touch with the past by restoring and preserving the old shops and buildings.  The country vibe is alive and well.Rustic and rusty is OK and makes for a lot of charm in these boutique shops.Take a break from any activity and grab a bite. Park your bike or horse a while.It's always fun to poke your head in the door of any of these stores, galleries and restaurants. You can drive up Baldwin Avenue from Paia, or cut across on Makawao Avenue from Pukalani.Spend some time getting to know this cute town where you can relax and slow down.Come on by to little Makawao town in Upcountry Maui. 96768  #hipstamaticWhen you're ready to buy a home in Makawao, start your Maui MLS s...

Makawao and Pukalani Maui - Realtor Caravan listings Dec 2015How 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.The Gardens Upcountry condo building, Pukalani Maui HI 96768Here's a quick run down of the four properties for sale as seen on Dec. 17 2015: The Gardens Upcountry #2 is a 2BD/2BA 2-story townhouse condo in a small complex with only 20 apartments in total.

Fresh Smoked Pork from Makawao - a roadside treatIf 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.What can you do with the smoked pork?  Eat it many ways: heat it up on the grill and slice into bite size pieces for great pupus. put some into lau laus along with some beef or chicken. No need add liquid smoke. fry 'em up in the pan with some onions and peppers, maybe a fri...
