Gingerhill Farm Retreat is located on five acres of organic orchards and gardens nestled just above famous Kealakekua Bay. We offer serenity and escape mere minutes away from local restaurants and shops.
Complete with bathroom, kitchen and outdoor shower, our Garden Cottage offers the independence of a cozy private dwelling situated just above the gardens. Relax on the deck in the evenings as you enjoy breathtaking images of the sun setting over the Pacific.
Take a stroll through our gardens and then marvel at the sunset from one of various scenic decks. Hike down to Kealakekua Bay and swim with the Dolphins. Gingerhill Farm offers an exotic escape from the hustle and bustle of 21st century living.
Iris and Zach, met on Iris's native island of 'Magic' in Brazil. It is their dream to one day teach people from all over the world how to live sustainably in community, a return to the village model. As co directors of Gingerhill Farm on the Big Island, they teach the Sustainable Living Course and host guests from all over the world who come to grow and cook the healthiest foods and practice yoga and meditation. Come and try the Gingerhill Farm lifestyle and see if it doesnt agree with you. Namastê.

South Kona's "Greenbelt," has long been known for farming, especially coffee. Lush growth and farms, cute stores, antiques and cafes dot the road down to Historic Kealakekua Bay where Captain Cook once "discovered" Hawaii and where tourists now swim with the Dolphins. We chose this property because of its deep volcanic soil, ideal elevation and breathtaking ocean views.
Now that the gardens and orchards are mature, we love being able to harvest a huge variety of nutrient-dense food from our land. Visitors are always blown away by our Garden of Eden-style food forests.
The setting of the cottage was just beautiful and the hosts are very friendly! My daughter and I felt extremely comfortable and welcomed! I would highly recommend staying on this property instead of a hotel! It is the best way to experience the tropical Hawaiian lifestyle! Such a pleasure that we are already planning our next trip!
Perfect retreat spot in an organic farm with amazing views. Fruit and avocado trees all around. Well appointed place - it had everything we needed.
Minimal and spare. This is not a beachfront condo. Lovely distant water view. The organic garden comes with frogs and birds and some mosquitos. The bed is really comfortable. Amenities are close by. It was a privilege to be able to stay here.
Delightful setting, beautiful gardens & plant life, comfy bed, lovely outdoor kitchen & shower, close to our favorite swimming spots, all we needed... Didn't receive directions ahead, so we couldn't find it right away, but helpful neighbors got us there.
The cottage is bright and airy, clean and comfortable. The open air kitchen and lanai are functional and have a view of the ocean in the distance. It is so peaceful, the only noises are from the birds and insects and nearby cows. The setting is beautiful but not far from lots of local attractions and Kobe is about 20 mins drive if you want the resort atmosphere. It is very tricky to find the first time -- make sure you ask for specific directions. I wouldn't recommend arriving at night the first time!
This is a gorgeous spot. The cottage is lovely: a spare, simple aesthetic, yet completely comfortable, with Mayumis's amazing art and artistic touches throughout. The kitchen on the deck is perfect for simple meals. You are surrounded by lush tropical greenery: banana trees, avocado, papaya, ginger, bird of paradise and more. The only sounds you hear are the occasional cow moos and lovely frog chirps in the evening. The location is perfect : close to Kealakekua Bay and Honauanau for snorkeling. Captain Cook is 5 minutes away, with Choice Mart ( best grocery store ever!) and a green market on Sunday with a smaller one on Friday. The 1000 foot altitude means you get a little reprieve from the heat after sunset. Kona is a short 20 minute drive if you really need to go into town.
Can't wait to come back!
