The Garden Cottage at Gingerhill Farm Retreat was a great place to stay. The beautiful gardens, tranquil setting, fantastic original artwork, organic and off-the-grid vibe, complete privacy, well stocked lanai kitchen and distant ocean and sunset views made it a lovely place to spend the day or return to after a busy day. All this, plus it's in a great area with endless opportunities to hike, shop, snorkel, eat, listen to music, check out farmers markets and coffee farms, and eat more. Iris, Zack and Spam the cat were great hosts; friendly, ready to help out and answer questions and provided the cottage with their own delicious fresh fruit and local coffee. Early morning yoga was the best! I would return here on my next trip to the Big Island without hesitation. Mahalo nui!
