We had a LARGE family reunion here. Absolutely the best choice we could have made for a large group of people, including grown children in their 20s. Plenty of room for all to sleep in a bed, not on the floor, and, gathering spots were all over the structure but the BEST was the balcony view onto the beach and... More

Million dollar view of sunsets from lanai, lovely pool, snorkeling and bogie boarding or swimming just steps away. Everything you need for beach provided (chairs, bogie boards, towels, etc.). We had fresh bananas from their trees on site, their was plenty of... More

The Kona Sugar Shack is completely as advertised. The location is great, and views are amazing. There is wonderful snorkeling just down the street. This area is a little quieter than the touristy areas up north. We really enjoyed out stay.

WOW! We had a great time. The Sugar Shack is a beautiful place!! We had the entire place. We had fresh bananas from the banana trees. Enjoyed dining with entire family on the beautiful 2nd floor lanai. Great ocean and sunset views. The sunsets are better than Key West. No noisy crowd. Can sit on lanai or walk across street...

This was our second stay at the Sugar Shack for a family vacation. It is everything that you read in their advertisement, and more. We had the two top floor suites that include the wonderful porch that overlooks the ocean and White Sands Beach. Very comfortable and very clean - no surprises! It is equipped with so many nice accessories... More

We have a property in Maui, but we like to visit other neighbouring islands as well. We chose the Big Island this time and stayed at the Sugar Shack in Kona based on a friend's recommendation. We didn't research the property at all based on the tip, so we didn't know much beforehand other than it was an excellent place... More
