Maui Uplands/Upland Estates in Makawao – What’s Selling in These Neighborhoods?

Maui Uplands and Upland Estates are a couple of great neighborhoods in the upcountry town of Makawao, on Maui. They were developed in the 1980’s on former pineapple fields, on the sunnier south side of Makawao. Each lot is more or less a half acre, and Agricultural zoning allows for 2 dwellings. With about 275 separate home lots, these adjacent neighborhoods cover a lot of ground below Makawao Avenue.

The main house can be any size, and the cottage can be up to 700 sq.ft. of interior space. The CC&R’s are minimal and homeowners can pretty much build any style of house and not be bound by a lot of rules. This makes for a nice mix of homes and landscapes with each property being distinct from its neighbor.

Maui Uplands owners will have a small annual fee which allows them the use of a community pool and tennis court. Those in Upland Estates don’t have any annual dues or Homeowners Association. Otherwise these 2 neighborhoods are very similar and blend together well as they are not gated or separated by walls.

Maui residents really like this area with the extra large yards and meandering streets. Being situated between downtown Makawao and Pukalani town makes for convenient shopping choices. Haleakala Highway is nearby, which takes you quickly down to Kahului and Wailuku and other sea level destinations.
