Imagine living on the lush slopes of Haleakala, amid 800 acres of sprawling pastures, woodlands and rainforests.
Welcome to Pi’iholo Ranch, one of the last working cattle ranches on Maui. Minutes from the historic Makawao town, the epic estate listed for $17.5 million spans across rolling fields, eucalyptus forests and canyons, with views that sweep from Maui's north shore to the summit of Haleakala to the West Maui Mountains.
"Pi'iholo Ranch is one of the last generational ranches on the island," said Island Sotheby's International Realty's owner Ryan MacLaughlin R(B), who's representing the seller. "Parts of the ranch have never been seen by the public."
To this day, the property is home to one of Maui's busiest operating cattle ranches, with about 550 acres of fenced pastures throughout. Remote cabins are scattered across the estate, perfect for day treks or comfortable camping on horseback. There’s also more than 90 acres of diverse, mature woodland and more than 160 acres of lush valleys, sheltered by the region’s topography.
Besides a plethora of trails ideal for exploration on horseback, there’s also recreational activities like the Pi’iholo Zipline, where you’ll soar over the top of tropical rainforests. Hiking through the property provides a view into Old Hawaii with hundreds of native shrubs and flowers, indigenous trees and habitat for the endangered Nene goose.
The property includes the legendary Pi’iholo Hill, which soars above Makawao town and the western reach of the ranch. Cherished for its focus on sustainability, the land has never been subjected to modern farming techniques and pesticides, making the land rich and prime for agriculture.
Peace, privacy and untouched wilderness are what you'll find at the ranch, which boasts seven separate parcels of land. There’s also numerous building sites throughout the property, offering ideal locations for a luxury ranch homes or stables.
"This ranch is living and breathing," said MacLaughlin. "With stables, pastures, rodeo, ponds, waterfalls, ziplines, eco-tourism, camping, and multiple cabins, it’s truly like no other."
