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

We spent a relaxing week at the beautiful Kona Sugar Shack. Our host had rented the whole house for a family reunion and it proved to be perfect for our group of 9 adults (3 couples and 3 singles). The location was excellent with easy access to town and the nearby Keauhou shopping center. We did most of our grocery... More

We stayed at the Kona Sugar Shack in Feb/March 2014. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay there and heartily second what was said in the previous good reviews. Rather that repeat what was said there we’ll add some additional impressions. We stayed in the Anniversary Suite, and Suite specific comments mainly apply to that unit. The Anniversary Suite is very well... More

We rented two different suites during our two week stay at the Sugar Shack. We stayed in the honeymoon poolside suite the first week. It has an outdoor kitchen beside the pool which we enjoyed each and every morning and night. The second week we moved upstairs to the Ocean view 3 bedroom suite. It was very roomy and had... More

My husband and I absolutely loved the Kona Sugar Shack! In a perfect location, so close to great restaurants and right across from a public beach. We stayed in the Anniversary Suite which was so beautiful--large outdoor patio with a great view, full kitchen, and beautiful bedroom, bathroom, and living room. Would recommend to everyone--couples, families, groups of friends.

We rented Kona Sugar Shack for our Thanksgiving trip to Big Island. We were a group of 4 families with 2 adults and 2 kids each. We wanted to stay at a place that was close to the beach, near the attractions, quiet for a family retreat, and was comfortable. Kona Sugar Shack exceeded all our expectations and much more.... More
