We stayed for four nights in the Ocean Suite and it was just perfect - well set up home away from home, very comfortable rooms and facilities and a great beach and snorkelling across the road. Jae and John were excellent hosts - very helpful and friendly. Thoroughly recommend.

The Sugar Shack is like having a home in Hawaii. The accomodations were great! The outside kitchen is perfect. The flowers, landscaping, pool, room were just what we needed after a very snowy spring in Wyoming. The location was great for exploring the Kona side of the island. Snorkeling is amazing in many places near the Sugar Shack! The McCaskills...

Our family of 14 had the privilege of staying at the Kona Sugar Shack over our Spring Break. It was a delightful stay and John and Jae were wonderful hosts. We really enjoyed hanging out as a family at the Sugar Shack and will recommend this location in the future! We hope to go back soon!

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...

The Kona Sugar Shack is one really fabulous place. Our family stayed in the Mango suite which was very clean and very nicely decorated. There is also a private patio/garden that was my favorite spot to sit early in the morning, drink coffee and listen to the birds singing, and the geckos clicking. The owners, Jae and John are the...

One of the nicest places we have ever stayed on holiday. Our extended families from the UK and USA all loved it and the flexibility of the accommodation worked perfectly for us all from 60 to 6 months. The 5 year old learnt to swim in the pool, the 10 year old helped cut down bananas and picked papayas. The...

My boyfriend and I recently returned from 8 nights at The Sugar Shack and absolutely loved it. We stayed in the Honeymoon Suite; we loved the outdoor kitchen. Everything you need is available - beach towels, chairs, coolers, kitchen supplies etc. We had a gorgeous sunset everynight. The pool and grounds are gorgeous and Jae and John could not be...

We spent the second half of our big island vacation at the Sugar Shack and had the most amazing time. Jae was out of town for the week, but John was the consummate host, offering beach recommendations and more. His on-site art studio is impressive, and I can't help but envy the location of his "office", just steps from the...

Highly recommended, we have never had a better holiday with our extended family - there was something for everyone and the Kona Sugar Shack was a perfect base for us all. We particularly enjoyed the terrace, pool and outdoor kitchen as well as the proximity to the beach and town. Our hosts were lovely and very accomodating to all of...

My husband and I recently spent a week at the Sugar Shack on Hawaii's Big Island and cannot imagine a more perfect place for us in this tropical paradise!
