Upcountry Maui consists of Paia, Makawao, Pukalani and Kula. Famous for open country living, green living, horses, and memorable island views, there are many choices in Maui’s beautiful Upcountry.  Many migrate up the hill for cooler climates, more green space and to be closer to the private schools. Home to Hawaii’s Paniolo history, don't be surprised if you see a horse walking down the road.

Unique boutiques and restaurants in Makawao, Haiku & Kula bring a more relaxed lifestyle to Upcountry life.  Farm to table cooking from some of the best chef's and ranches on-island.
