Welcome to Sunset Ranch!
Nestled atop Waimea Valley on the North Shore of Oahu, Sunset Ranch is one of the most exclusive private estates on the island. The approximate thirty acre property is home to a horse ranch, avocado and citrus farm, aquaculture site and botanical garden. Sunset Ranch has spectacular ocean and mountain views of the entire northwest side of the island, and the estate’s elegant beauty, pristine views and gentle breezes make this special property like no other.
We’re pleased to share that Sunset Ranch has been protected with one of Hawaii’s first private conservation easements. As a result, this special property will 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). Sunset Ranch remains one of the only properties in Hawaii forever protected with federal, state and county grant funding. Please watch the news report here for more information.
Having made the promise to protect the land in perpetuity, the owner of Sunset Ranch is now making productive use of the property in order to establish it as a model or platform to advance land conservation and sustainability in Hawaii. Accordingly, we have developed a business model to share Sunset Ranch in the following ways: (i) Tours & Events, (ii) Farming, (iii) Botanical Gardens, and (iv) Horsemanship programs. We hope you enjoy learning more about our mission at Sunset Ranch. Please also be sure to take a Virtual Tour of the property HERE and visit our View Cam. Please also visit our social media pages to stay informed and for more visual content. You can follow us on Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, Twitter and Youtube.
