Hawaii Development Information

Ohikilolo Ranch, Oahu, Hawaii

The island of Oahu contains Honolulu, the capital of Hawaii, the renowned Wikiki Beach and approximately 71% of the State’s population of 1.27 million as reported in the 2005 census.

Ohikilolo Ranch is 414 acres of agriculturally zoned land located at 83-500 Farrington Highway, south of Makua Valley on the island of Oahu, Hawaii. In contrast to the Honolulu’s eastern metropolitan area, Ohikilolo Ranch is found adjacent to the rural coast on the leeward side of the island as shown below.

The history of the property is brief as land rights on Oahu began between the years of 1848 to 1851 during a time known as The Great Mahele. Initially it was awarded to individuals identified as Harbottle, Aiona, Muki, Kanaue, Kiki who sold it to Lincoln L. McCandless in 1899. The McCandless family held the land until 1987 when it was sold to a Japanese firm, Alpha Kai, who in turn sold it to the present owners twenty years later in 2007. Throughout these times was it was used as a cattle ranch and the landscape has reportedly evolved from a dry climate with dry brush to the more lush field of kiawe trees and grass found on it today.

Visitors landing at the Honolulu Airport travel on the H1 (divided highway) as it turns into Farrington Highway, a distance of 33 miles to arrive at the property entrance.

Beginning near sea level at the highway, the pastureland remains relatively level for about 1,500 feet where it begins to ascend to the end of the property another 3,500 feet to arrive at an elevation of 1,000 feet.
