Gingerhill Farm retreat is one of many Big Island farms located on Hawaii’s sunny west side. It resides in the lush farm country that lies between the vivacity of Kona town and the calm beauty of Captain Cook’s beaches and trails.This region is called Kona’s “Greenbelt.” Its rich volcanic soils produce an abundance of macadamia nuts, avocados and mangoes. It also produces some of the finest and most expensive coffee in the world.
Amidst the ocean views and serenity on the farm, it is easy to forget that we are just minutes from Kealakekua and Kainaliu towns with their quaint boutiques, antique stores and eateries. As a result, Gingerhill is distinct from other Big Island farms. It offers a genuine retreat from modern living while also providing access to the island’s various recreational opportunities.
Our farm is just thirty minutes south of Kona International Airport and twenty minutes from Kona town. Thus, guests are easily able to enjoy Kona’s local music, tropical drinks, and freshly caught fish. Kona also offers scuba diving and snorkeling tours, eclectic boutique shopping, and a vibrant bar and restaurant scene. Alternatively, guests looking to escape from the bustle of Kona living can venture a few minutes South to Captain Cook. There they find scenic hiking trails, historical artifacts, and intimate, local food joints. Finally, there is no shortage of beach-going opportunities both North and South, whether you are looking to see Hawaii’s unique black sand beaches, snorkel in a Hawaiian marine conservation district, or relax in sparsely populated spaces near scenic waters.
