Makena Ranch is a 160-acre agricultural zoned property in Makena, Maui. It is located South of and adjacent to Makena Resort land. The property's Western boundary is about 200 yds from the ocean. The land between the ocean and the ranch is designated Open Space/Park. The ranch extends almost a mile up the slopes of Haleakala towards Ulupalakua and reaches an elevation of 340ft at its highest point. The terrain varies from dry land forest and grassy meadows to heavily wooded areas of Keawi and WiliWili. Makena Ranch offers the ultimate in privacy and solitude. It is surrounded by undeveloped mostly forested land, much of it owned by the State, which has no access or availability of utilities and will likely remain undeveloped. A small organic farm and residence is the only adjacent neighbor. The ranch provides stunning views from La Perouse Bay to Big Beach with Kahoolawe and Molokini standing offshore. Higher elevation views reveal West Maui, Lanai, and the Big Island. Makena Ranch is a place that feels wild and remote but is only 5 miles from a Four Seasons Resort, gourmet dining and luxury shopping. This legacy property is comprised of several land parcels allowing the creation of a uniquely private compound for family and friends. Makena Ranch has underground utilities extending up the central ranch driveway which traverses the entire property. Onsite power generator allows for off grid living if the owner so chooses. Sustainability could be easily achieved with the addition of a PV array. The most important and impressive component of ranch infrastructure is its private water system. Two wells provide brackish water to a state-of-the-art desalination plant which supplies a 100,000-gallon storage tank and a distribution system for drinking water, agricultural irrigation, and fire protection. At the present time, one well is in use providing up to 120,000 Gallons Per Day of potable water. The second well serves as backup and could produce an additional 80,000 GPD.
