Welcome to Upcountry

For prospective buyers looking for a piece of paradise that comes with a touch of country charm, Upcountry is the ideal location. Filled with picturesque farms, livestock, and acres upon acres of natural pastures, this one-of-a-kind area is perfect for anyone whose idea of paradise is more than just beaches and palm trees. Upcountry is known for its serene atmosphere, lush scenery, and cowboy-like lifestyle, and it has become one of the most desirable areas on Maui as a result.

This appreciation for the outdoors and deep connection with nature has made the area especially appealing for young professionals and families.
