My dream home in Maui’s upcountry

My Maui Dream Home

I’m still working through all the fun details of our trip but something I was not prepared for was falling in love with Maui’s upcountry. With sweeping ocean views, a gorgeous tropical mountain setting, cooler climes and wonderful people, this area really had it all.

I’ve never understood snowbirds, particularly because I love winter. We know quite a few who head south when the temperatures drop but I’m just not a fan of Arizona or most parts of Florida. However, there is a couple in our ward who winter in Hawaii and *that* I get.

It’s not uncommon for me to check real estate listings when I return home from a trip but I’m at the borderline obsession stage looking at cottages in Maui’s upcountry. I wouldn’t go during my beloved winter…we’d summer there (sounds perfect, right?)

Most of the homes were just that–dream homes. Really big, really expensive and frankly, I’m just not the type to buy a big, stuffy ostentatious home or car. But I found this little gem in the upcountry that is right around the corner from the Kula Lodge, a place we loved. (See the listing here).

Though the price isn’t nearly as steep as its waterfront counterparts, $785,000 is a tough pill to swallow for a three-bedroom, 1,600-square-foot cottage. So who wants to go in on it with us? Or, I am generously offering it up to you because we’ll never be able to afford it unless I win the lottery. You buy, I come visit.

It’s a win-win for everyone.
