Makawao/Olinda Real Estate

Makawao real estate epitomizes Upcountry living. Homes for sale in Makawao include everything from simple single-family houses to luxury estates with breathtaking views. Makawao is synonymous with paniolo lifestyle, and cowboys and cowgirls still work the fields and care for the livestock as the generations before them have. The town comes alive when the festive Makawao Rodeo and Parade trots into town, an annual tradition now more than sixty years in the making. Just about every other day, the quaint and character-filled “Makawao town” along Makawao Avenue is lined with shoppers of every kind: art enthusiasts browsing locally made creations at Viewpoints Gallery, fashionistas scooping the latest boho chic styles, and foodies treating their taste buds at Market Fresh Bistro. Of course no visit to Makawao is complete with a stop at perhaps one of Maui’s most famous mom-and-pop landmark, T Komoda Store and Bakery. This is a town of contrasts and the same can be said for the Makawao real estate market.

Just above Makawao town sits the residential area of Olinda, a highly sought-after address that includes large estates dotted with stately plantation-era homes for sale, romantic winding roads lined with fragrant eucalyptus trees, and gorgeous vistas at every turn. The area is also home to one of the most prestigious private schools in the state, Seabury Hall. The million-dollar views in Olinda have the real estate price tags to match, but this Maui gem truly sparkles.
