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.
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.
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.
