Welcome to Sunset Ranch!
Nestled atop Waimea Valley on the North Shore of Oahu, Sunset Ranch is one of the largest private estates on the island. The approximate 30 acre property, also known as Pu’u O Kolea (Plover Hill), is one of the most private, secluded areas on Oahu, with spectacular views of the northwest side of the island. Sunset Ranch’s elegant beauty, pristine views and gentle breezes make this special property like no other.
We’re pleased to share that Sunset Ranch has recently been protected with one of Hawaii’s first private conservation easements. The property will now remain preserved forever. The owner of Sunset Ranch, along with the North Shore Community Land Trust (NSCLT) and The Trust for Public Land (TPL), successfully raised funds for the purchase of the conservation easement from the Federal government’s Farm and Ranch Protection Program (FRPP), the State’s Legacy Land Conservation Fund (LLCF) and the City & County’s Clean Water and Natural land Fund (CWNL). To ensure protection of this special property, an endowment fund was also established with private funding to support ongoing monitoring of the site. Please see this article and news report from KGMG/KHNL for more information.
Now protected, Sunset Ranch has a focused mission of helping further land conservation and sustainability in Hawaii. With the assistance of NSCLT and NRCS, the owner of Sunset Ranch has voluntarily developed a conservation plan to make productive use of the property in ways that benefit the community, including opening the site for the following uses: (i) Events, (ii) Farming, (iii) a Nursery, and (iv) Horsemanship programs.
