Our stay at Kona Sugar Shack, "Anniversary Suite" was very comfortable and enjoyed. It was well supplied with everything needed... coolers, beach chairs, boogie boards, snorkel gear, etc. The location was good for us and convenient to many good restaurants and activities. As in the instructions sent to renters "Before arrival, Stop at Safeway grocery store near the airport before... More

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.

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

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
