About this listing
Gingerhill Farm 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. Yoga, Meditation and Farming are offered Mon-Fri.
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.
Mon-Fri at 6am is meditation practice. All guests are invited. Guests can sign up for a yoga class at 11am.
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.
Interaction with Guests
Guests can be independent or a part of our community as they wish. They can choose to "opt in" to our Yoga Farm Program and Meals as well when available.
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.
The Big Island still offers small town, Mom-and- Pop-store charm. We have a very slow bus system and not much else. Hitch-hiking is popular and easy.

This property was amazing. Our host was gracious of enough to give us farm fresh eggs, which we made omelettes with for breakfast. the property is beautiful with gorgeous flowers and lush greens. absolutly magical, you were the highlight of our trip
Der Froschgesang war herrlich in der Nacht! Und Risa macht nicht nur ein tolles Frühstück, sie ist auch eine beeindruckende Künstlerin.
Einfache, gute Unterkunft, sauber, im tropischen Garten- übrigens mit Whirlpool- Möglichkeit unter freiem Himmel.
Nicht ganz billig allerdings das Ganze.
Zack and Iris were very welcoming. The cottage was a great escape. Good wifi. Clean room. Outdoor shower. It's a very nice place if you are looking to get out of tourist-heavy Kona and relax.
Our stay with Zach and Iris was wonderful. We truly enjoyed the farm, it's a very peaceful setting. I recommend taking a tour of the farm with Zach and I wish I had taken advantage of the lunch they offer as well, I'm sure it is fantastic. I can't say enough good things about our stay there. We arrived at night, following the directions they provided we found the place easily and Iris was there to meet us and show us to our room. When we return to the Big Island we will definitely stay here again.
Great! They were all very nice, helpful and mindful, it was a perfect Place! Would like to come again!
Zach and all at gingerhill farm were very welcoming. We shared some meals together. The food was a highlight for me. Delicious! It's wonderfully serene and picturesque, and a good location far from the hustle and bustle of kona. The location is also close to the start of the trail down to the captain cook monument, where dolphins are known to swim, though they eluded me on the two occasions I went to see them.
