We came to Kona to get married on a heavenly beach about 30 minutes from the house that the owners helped us find, as they recommended several different places for our beach wedding. The Kona Sugar Shack itself was everything we hoped for and more! It was perfect to accommodate our diverse group of 19 (including a baby and a... More

We stayed here 5 nights in the mango suite. We didn't have ocean view from the condo/appartment, but instead we had privacy (which also can be good). The kitchen were ok, allthough I don't think the "portable" stove had been used for a while - it was a bit dusty... There is not a big oven - if you want... More

This place was "PERFECT". We have a huge family so we rented the entire place. The owners provided just about everything you would need. The place was clean and beautiful. Best of all right across the street from the beach. A trollies stop just outside it's gate.

The Sugar Shack is the perfect place to stay on the Big Island. It feels like you are right at home, as they supply you with everything you need. John and Jae, the owners, made our trip planning so easy for us and made sure we had everything we wanted! The location is perfect, the view is beautiful and the... More

This place is perfect for groups. Amazing location right across from the beach. The pool at the house is a great touch as well. We traveled in a group of 6 and had so much fun! The Sugar Shack is clean and convenient - we will definitely be back.

Great vacation place for a large group. The setting is beautiful and it's close to both a swimming and a snorkelling beach. It's easy to get to shopping and dining areas. Sitting in and around the pool Late in the afternoon, watching the sungo down was magical. Jae was very helpful in setting things up and John was very helpful... More

We enjoyed 2 fabulous weeks here. We had 18 people and were happy to have this home at the beach. Magic Sand Beach is seconds to walk to. The view is the best ever. Stunning sunsets! Lots of room for all of us. Nice to have kitchen with everything we needed to prepare grand meals, large BBQ by the pool.... More

Stayed with a group for a friend's wedding. This place is huge & absolutely amazing for individuals or groups. I felt like I had enough privacy when I wanted it, and the layout is great for groups too. Can't say enough about this place with only 200 characters. 5 stars.

Our family stayed in the Anniversary & Ocean Suites the week of March 22, 2014. Spectacular location for family. Our daughter loved swimming in the pool daily and training us to be mermaids & mermen! White Sands Beach is a blast for boogie boarding & simply hanging out. The deck of the Anniversary Suite overlooks the ocean and our breakfasts... More

Although all of the reviews of the Sugar Shack seemed positive, I didn't really know what to expect when I got there. I had rented the entire property for a week and invited my family from Israel, San Francisco, and Southern California to join me there to celebrate my birthday. We stayed from March 8-15, 2014 Everyone in our party... More
