Holiday Season at the Mea Makamae Ranch in Haiku
I have to admit, I enjoy the decorating part of the holiday season. Our parents put a lot of time and effort in to selecting the family Christmas tree and decking out the house every December. I always enjoy helping Billy and his family find and decorate their tree. Believe it or not, there are a few Christmas Tree farms on Maui. For the last few years, we have headed up to the Mea Makamae Ranch in Haiku to find our tree. If you recognize the name Mea Makamae, that is because the ranch also happens to be one of our listings. This stunning 38 acre estate has a small grove of Cook Pines. These tropical evergreens make for a hardy Christmas tree. The great thing about Cook Pines is that you can “top the tree” and new shoots grow out. Before too long a new “tree” grows in it’s place. Here is a video I shot and edited on my iPhone from our Christmas Tree excursion to Mea Makamae. I even added a cameo by Noodles the long eared reindeer.
The Christmas Tree farm is just one of the great features of Mea Makamae Ranch. Looking for a horse property? Mea Makamae has seven gated paddocks, an outdoor round pen and a tack room. The main house is a luxurious 4,200 square feet with a 2,400 square foot attached garage space. Amenities in the main home include a 1,000 square foot master suite and a gourmet kitchen. In addition to the main house, there is a beautiful 1,000 square foot cottage. The cottage combines classic Hawaiian Plantation Style with modern amenities.
