My daughter and I were lucky enough to pay a return visit to the Sugar Shack in Kona last week. Staying at the Sugar Shack blends all the best aspects of a B&B, a hotel and a private home: charming accoutrements with none of the hassles. The location is perfect for exploring the Big Island, and you could not ask for better hosts than Jae and John. Each room has a "Black Book": a binder personally compiled by Jae & John, of tips and favorite spots on the island, which is updated regularly. Trust me, you will use it! This trip we stayed in the Mango Suite, which has its own private patio -- big plus. Previously we stayed in the Pool Suite, which is nearest to the outdoor kitchen -- nice too. If you aren't the Big Resort Hotel type, this might be just the place for you.
