About this listing

Gingerhill Farm welcomes you to five acres of organic orchards and lush gardens nestled just above famous Kealakekua Bay. We offer beauty and serenity mere minutes away from local restaurants, cafes and shops. Incredible ocean and sunset views.

The space

Complete with bathroom, kitchen and outdoor shower, our Garden Cottage offers the independence of a cozy, private cabin nestled above the gardens. Relax on the deck in the evenings as you enjoy breathtaking images of the sun setting over the Pacific.

Guest access

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.

Other things to note

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.

Our stay was really nice and the location was beautiful!. Being that the cottage is basically in the Hawaiian jungle there were a TON of mosquitos in the outside kitchen-- fortunately, they did not bother us once we were inside. Bring bug spray and apply it liberally!! Finally, if you are a hotel person and do not like bugs, critters, or a cacophony of signing nocturnal frogs, this is not the place for you. On the other hand, if you are more of an outdoorsy type, or are willing to deal with all that mother nature provides, you will be handsomely rewarded with a beautiful and quiet cottage surrounded by an amazingly lush off the beaten path Hawaiian jungle.

The Garden Cottage is perfect for a couple who wants to enjoy the pure natural beauty of the Big Island. It is very comfortable and deeply quiet at night. It is clean and very light and fresh. The outdoor shower is a delight. Although it has beds for three it is one room and the lack of privacy might be problematic for more than two people. Also, be sure to print out the directions and instructions ahead of time because the cell phone reception on the Big Island is very spotty.
