With the warm ocean air breezing through the many windows outfitting several condos for sale in Maui along with gentle waves touching the shore, it is pretty hard to imagine venturing beyond the west side. So why would you?

Boasting sparkling ocean views with nightly sights of pastel hues fading to flaming shades of sunset is just one of the many reasons to live in Kapalua. And with the warm ocean air breezing through the many windows outfitting several condos for sale in Maui along with gentle waves touching the shore, it is pretty hard to imagine venturing beyond the west side. So why would you?

It is early morning and the dark sky is freckled with bright constellations as you drag your blankets off the bed to tuck into the car. Approximately 2 hours later, you find yourself on the rocky edge of the crafter atop the Haleakala Summit. Hugging the blanket closer, you finally catch a glimpse of a line of light right there on the horizon. Blink and the intense golden circle of the Hawaiian sun starts to inch across the now lit sky, creating shades of colors that fade from pastel to vibrant hues. While the flaming sunsets of West Maui are an incredible daily sight, the unique experience of watching light touch each part of the island is something that is reserved for Upcountry Maui.

The misty mountains and rolling hills of the island’s country side showcase a different outlook on island living. The rich volcanic soil enables the growth of fresh produce and healthy livestock which creates a flourishing farm to table culture. Looking to get away, if just for a day, from the white-sands or the soothing ocean waters that front your Maui condo and home then you will find yourself exploring the slopes of Haleakala. Get a fresh taste of the island for breakfast or lunch at O’o Farms or sip Maui-made pineapple wine at Ulupalakua Vineyards. You can even wander the relaxing lavender field of the Alii Kula Lavender farm or soar across the tropical forests of the Piiholo Ranch. There is so much to discover in Upcountry Maui and it is just waiting for you to adventure out from your private oasis!
