Oprah Winfrey says aloha to more Hawaiian property

September 27, 2005


— Oprah Winfrey is buying more land on Maui.

Hana Ranch Partners said it is selling 63 acres at Mokae near Hamoa Beach to the TV talk-show host, who already owns 102 acres on the Valley Island.

The purchase price wasn't disclosed, but will become public record when the deal closes.

The agreement also includes preserving another 192 acres from development in a joint project with Hana Ranch, Winfrey and the Maui Coastal Land Trust. The conservation project will be in the neighboring Haneoo and Hamoa districts.

If the deal goes through and Winfrey, host of "The Oprah Winfrey Show," builds a home at Mokae, she is expected to drop her plans to build on a 102-acre Lehoula property she bought in 2002 with her close friend Bob Greene.
