Our team stayed at the Kona Sugar Shack during the Raganar Hawaii race. While somewhat distant from most of the race course, it is very close to shops/restaurants in Kona. 1 mile from Da Poke Shack and about 3 miles from downtown Kona. The layout of the house is broken up into up to 5 separate rentals which makes it... More

Joe and John were amazing to deal with from the start, the house itself is amazing and perfect for our large group. With different suites for all the different people it allowed us to have some privacy when needed but also enjoy the Big Island as a group also. Having the beach so close was a definite benefit and easy... More

Visited this spring with a large group of family (13 adults). There was plenty of space to spread out, everyone had a bed, and the kitchen made it easy to cook for the whole family. We appreciated the air conditioners in the bedrooms, the lovely bathrooms, and the fresh bananas from their trees. Everything we needed was there - from... More

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

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!
