The Uplands of Makawao Maui – Half Acre Lots with House and Cottage

Upcountry Maui – Half Acre lots with House and Cottage in Makawao

In Maui’s upcountry region of Makawao, some neighborhoods that were developed in the ’80s have grown into a really great community known as the uplands: Maui Uplands, Makawao Uplands, and Upland Estates.

What do they have in common? They were all developed on old pineapple fields when the pineapple industry was winding down, and each lot comes with at least a half acre of land, and up to about .66 acres. Zoning allows for 2 dwellings per lot, with the second house being no larger than 700 sq. ft. These properties are still zoned Agricultural, so you can have some backyard chickens or a goat if that’s what you want. Many owners have fruit trees which produce lovely citrus, avocado, and bananas. Some of the neighborhoods share a community pool and tennis court.
