Makawao Town Maui has always had a lot of charm, In the old days, ok I am showing my age, on the 4th of July cowboys that had a little to much to drink would ride their horses into the local steak house. This is the building the Matsui Building, my brother and I ran Nickens Interiors for eight years.  It's an old cowboy town, with a lot of charm. It still has its rustic old town feeling. Ok everyone loves the Makawao Parade, my wife Ivy having a good time.Makawao Town is also home to some great places to eat.

  Today on Maui it is HOT.  The tradewinds have stopped blowing and the sun is out, and it is HOT.  I would love to jump into this swimming pool, with the waterfall grotto and surround sound speakers.  This wonderful new Makawao listing has a home with too many features to list here.  It's the pool that I'm in love with.  Right now I want this pool!  And yes, you can go skinny dipping here, because it's very private.  Nobody will see you. Lucky for me, although this pool is not in my back yard, I do have access to mountain pools today.  I'm off to a private property on the north shore of Maui, with waterfalls and pools, and I'm taking the dogs.  We're going swimming!  I'll be back with more pictures soon. In the meantime, if you dream about a Maui home with a pool, why not start your se...

Makawao is popularly known as a "paniolo" or cowboy town. Formerly the service center for area homesteads,  ranches and plantations, the town has retained it's distinctly unique Old West/Hawaiian Plantation flavor. Every July the annual Makawao Rodeo and parade commemorate its past, and every so often one will find a horse tied to a hitching post along the main thoroughfares.Today funky boutiques, quaint New Age shops, colorful restaurants and art galleries line Baldwin and Makawao Avenues. Artists and writers are drawn to the off-beat atmosphere of Makawao, as are ride-down-the-mountain cyclists and colorful Hawaiian cowboys-at-heart. If you or anyone you know is looking to buy or sell Makawai real estate, please feel free to contact me at deb@HomeOnMaui.com, or call me direct at (808)...

When people think about Maui, they tend to think of white sand beaches, beautiful ocean waters, rainbows and tropical waterfalls. Somehow, cowboys don't make the list. However, cowboys or as they are known locally Paniolos are a big part of the culture and identity of Maui's Upcountry. The slopes of Haleakala have been ranching country since the 1880s. Communities like Makawao formed to help support the needs of ranchers. While there aren't any more feed stores in Makawao town, it still has a cowboy feel and it actively celebrates its Paniolo culture. Fourth of July weekend is the town's biggest celebration of Paniolo culture with the fourth of July parade and the Makawao Rodeo. This holiday weekend is the 53rd annual rodeo. The rodeo starts at 9:00 AM on Thursday with the qualifying ev...

This is the Hui No'eau, or "the Hui" as it's known to the local community.  When you approach from the long driveway off Baldwin Avenue, this is the first building you come to - it's the former home of this Kaluanui estate.  Now it offers space for classes, lectures, exhibits, studios, a gift shop and administrative offices.  Future expansion will provide adequate classrooms and new studios for a growing community Yesterday I blogged about the annual Holiday Fair which was held on Dec. 1st this year.  It has become a tradition on Maui to attend the craft sale for some unique gifts that are made on Maui.  During the rest of the year, classes are offered in drawing, painting, photography, printmaking, jewelry, glass and ceramics.  Novices, serious students and professional artists gather...

MAKAWAO ~ MAUI Located on the corner of Baldwin and Makawao Avenues for over 20 years, Polli's Mexican Restaurantis a favorite hang out in Upcountry Maui.  This is ranch country, where hard working cowboys can work up a hefty appetite.  Tourists and residents will all agree that Polli's is a great meeting place for lunch or dinner. I always love their sign - COME IN AND EAT OR WE'LL BOTH STARVE! Mexican food is their specialty, with all the usual fare: burritos, tacos, chimichangas, enchiladas, home made chips and salsa, and of course Margaritas and ice cold cervesa.  This old fashioned town has plenty of thirsty regulars who belly up to the bar, where it's cool and shady.  T-shirts and souvenirs are for sale too, in this quaint establishment.  For a list of places to eat in Makawao an...
