VIDEO: Driving on Olinda Rd. In Makawao Maui HIYou can find Olinda Rd. originating from the town of Makawao and climbing up the windward side of Haleakala, through incredibly beautiful green pastures and tall eucalyptus trees.  It's a slow enjoyable drive, which continues on up about 4 or 5 miles, and connects with Piiholo Rd. which originates by St. Joseph's Church on the northeast side of Makawao.  The cool climate is lovely and many people call this home.  Olinda homes give you a feeling of being in the mountains, with a wood stove and pine trees, and distant ocean views.  Sometimes you forget you're on an island and want to curl up with a good book and cup of coffee.Jimi Hendrix was here.  Last month I posted my Makawao/Pukalani newsletter which mentioned about Jimi Hendrix playing ...

  9 new Maui listings and an apple pie We had a big Upcountry Realtor Caravan today, with 9 new properties to see in Makawao and Pukalani Maui.  I am amazed at some of the good deals these days, and also at some of the very nice homes being offered for sale.  I will end up posting about these homes when I do my newsletter. After viewing all the great properties I even had time to see one of our own Jim Sanders Realty listings that is canceling escrow today... 10 Laha Place in Makawao.  I got some pictures and video for a client on the mainland who wants to relocate to an island.  What a cute little home this will be for somebody.  Listed at $339,000.

I just listed a 5 bedroom home in Makawao Maui.  This is a great location, close to schools, Makawao Town, and just 20 minutes to downtown Kahului.  This home is priced at $525,000. This home offers great rental potential, it is currently set up as two rentals.  This is located in a quiet neighborhood, great for families, and raising kids. Makawao Town is a classic old cowboy town, you still see cowboys and cowgirls riding their horses through town.  Makawao also has great places to eat, and shop, it has a little bit of everything for everyone.  If you have any questions about this new listing , or about Maui real estate.  Give me a call, I would love to take the time and answer any question you may have on Maui Real Estate
