About the Property

Large Studio with Fully-Equipped Kitchen. Charming Cottage with Ocean Views

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, cafes 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.

In our commitment to promoting transparency we would like to say that there is more to sustainable agriculture than whether you use chemical fertilizer or organic pellets. Here at Gingerhill Farm we heed our role as stewards of the land and commit to practices which improve the health of our acreage year after year. This means we spray no insecticides or herbicides. It also means that in Hawaii, a subtropical island, we experience intervals of mosquito or termite pressure. Resonant Coqui frogs, native to Puerto Rico sing at night and sound like crickets. We consider these players as part of our ecosystem, and strive to maintain a balance. Our grounds are beautiful and fertile, partly tamed and partly wild. We ask that guests understand these dynamics and book accordingly.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: 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.

Why the Owner Chose Kealakekua, HI, USA:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
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.
