Our family of four stayed in the Ocean Suite on the second floor for a full week and really loved this location. It was away from the hustle and bustle of town but not too far. And, more than anything it was right across the street from the Magic Sands beach which was truly magical! Our kids LOVED the boogie... More

Our family loved the Kona Sugar Shack! We had the two units upstairs that open up as one unit, the Anniversary and Ocean Suites. The accommodations were roomy and comfortable for 7 adults and 2 children for almost 2 weeks. We loved the convenient location, good beds, nice furnishings, pool, etc., but what we loved the most was the experience... More

We stayed at the Kona Sugar shack back in July 2012. We could not have had it any better than the ocean suite at the Kona Sugar shack. I wish they had a webcam and I could go back and day dream every day. The home is right across from white sands beach with gorgeous sunsets,a wonderful pool,all sorts of... More

We actually stayed in December of 2011, just before the Christmas holiday. We had the place to ourselves. A highlight for the kids was when John chopped a banana tree down. The location was perfect and we spent hours at Magic Sands beach. i also snorkeled in the bay next to it - a bit tricky to enter the water... More

We booked in after reading all the reviews and we had been on the other side of the island at the Hilo Bay B and B so we could not help but compare. The location of the Sugar Shack is good, across the street from a small but beautiful White Sands Beach. The host Jae is a wonderful lady. We... More

Thank you for taking the time to write this review. We appreciate the positive feedback and the opportunity to respond to the negative. When you called last November and wanted to book two nights, I explained that we had a five night minimum and that for such a short stay it would be less expensive to stay in the village... More

Jae is simply an incredible host. The property is small and it runs like a well oiled machine. If you think of something you need, odds are Jae has already thought of it, and it's already there for you. Little beach across the street, typical of Kona beaches, with an adjacent snorkeling cove. Nice pool out front--small, but bigger than... More

We had an absolute blast at the sugar shack! Its our second time there now and we are thinking of it as a yearly trip! The pool is perfect for our little ones. The place is really set up nice - so we are spreading the word on Oahu! Perfect Kona location - right across the street from Magic Sands... More

We recently started our family holiday at the Kona Sugar Shack and what a beautiful, serene few days we had. Jae and John laid out a wonderful house for us to enjoy for three nights. Everything was clean, comfortable and welcoming. It was really like having our our own, secluded flat in a family home. The beds were large and... More

Stayed in the Honeymoon pool suite. Loved the outdoor kitchen and being pool side. The Kona sugar shack is great. The owner's have thought of everything! The only negative is that Alii drive is alot busier than I thought it would be. Not very relaxing to lay by pool and hear car after car go by. Could not hear any... More

Absolutely 5 stars!!! The Anniversary suite was amazing. The decor was comfortable and inviting. View of the ocean across the street can't be beat. Very comfortable bed in the main bedroom and two cozy single beds which converted from the couches. Well stocked kitchen (appliances, tools, condiments). It was perfect for us with two small children. Luxury of having pool... More
