My family and I stayed here for vacation and a wedding. The entire house is so nice. We rented part of the house for part of our stay then rented the rest of it when we had more guests staying with us. We saw dolphins and whales from the yard and lanais. We had a wedding on the grounds, as it was so beautiful! The owners are amazing to work with throughout the entire process. They have great recommendations for caterers! They have baby gear, a lot of beach gear, there are fruits and herbs on the property. Such a beautiful place, would recommend to anyone looking to stay on the big island.

Words will never do justice in explaining how special and serene Jae and John have made the Sugar Shack. The energy is very peaceful. We got married in the Mango suite patio and there aren't even words to describe how special and amazing it was. Not to mention utterly beautiful. I never got to meet Jae and John but I know they are wonderful people with good energy and love in abundance. No one will ever regret their time spent at the Sugar Shack. I know i won't! Sarah

We LOVE the Sugar Shack
We LOVE the Sugar Shack
I cannot say how much we loved our time at the Sugar Shack. My wife and I shared the Pool Suite with our 2 kids and found it to be a great choice. We loved using the outdoor kitchen and enjoyed relaxing by the pool while the kids swam. We were worried that room might be too small for 4 of us but with such easy acres to outside area we never felt cramped. We also loved having Magic Sands beach right across the street. All in all, this was an amazing place to stay and we would definitely stay there again if we are ever back in Kona.

Loved this property!
Loved this property!
14 of us, 6 kids and 8 adults, stayed at the Kona Sugar Shack and there was ample enough room for all of us, we never felt crowded. The house was perfect, we had all the suites except Mango and all were very nice, there were 3 kitchens in all, we only used the anniversary suite and the honeymoon suite kitchens. The outdoor kitchen in the honeymoon suite was perfect for everything we did around the outdoor oceanview pool and the anniversary suite had a huge kitchen where we could all get around quite easily, it had access to the outdoor patio which overlooked the ocean as well. That patio was beautiful and we used it alot. The description of the property is very accurate. All amenities were included, all we had to add was food. There was ample boogie boards, water shoes, sand toys, beach chairs, towels, pretty much anything we would have wanted for going to the beach or sitting around the pool was there. J and John were very accomodating, helped us to find great restaurants and places to see. The house is located just a 2 minute walk across the road to a great beach where you can boogie board, see lots of turtles or just relax on the sand. We ate at a restaurant called Sam Choy's, that is just a few minute drive away, up on top of a cliff overlooking the ocean. It looks like just another chain restaurant from the outside but the view is incredible and the fireplaces at your table are awesome, and the food was my favorite meal of the trip. The property was very clean, everything was in working order, beds were very comfortable, some of the kids slept on the smaller beds that were couches during the day and made into beds at night and found them very comfortable as well, they could easily sleep one adult. I would recommend this property in a heartbeat and can't wait to return myself. Thanks J and John for making our stay so awesome!

Our family of seven had a wonderful time at the Sugar Shack. We stayed at a five star resort on Kauai, but we loved the Sugar Shack the most. It felt very homey Hawaiian. You have eveything you need for exploring the island, snorkle equipment, boogie boards, coolers and even rain coats.We spent most of our time around the beautiful oceanfront pool.The outdoor kitchen was so handy for our drinks and snacks. The tropical, lush grounds and view of the ocean were amazing!! Right across the street was a great boogy boarding beach and down the road a great snorkling beach. We saw turtles everywhere. J made it so easy to book Sugar Shack and spent alot of time giving me all the information I needed. This is truly Paradise!!! We hope to come back again.

The Kona Sugar Shack was absolutely amazing! We loved every minute we spent there! Walk less than a block to Magic Sands beach and snorkel with sea turtles, or grill on the deck by the pool with an amazing ocean view. Jae and John provided excellent recommendations of places to explore. Their recommendations ended up being our favorite things we did on the Big Island. They are such gracious hosts, and we would highly recommend the Kona Sugar Shack. We would absolutely stay there again!

Jae and John were fabulous hosts. The view from the Honeymoon Suite is awesome (sunsets in front of you) and the water is about 100' away. Magic Sands beach(s) a VERY short walk for great boogie boarding and snorkeling. They have all the toys to take to the Beach included, masks, snorkles, boogie boards, mats, coolers, sunbrellas etc. First Class accomodation. We WILL go back there again and highly recommend the location. We had a GREAT stay. Lenny and Deneen, Victoria, B.C.

Hi. Me and 3 friends stayed at Kona Sugar Shack Vacation Inn for 3 days in beginning of March. The place was awesome with nice rooms, nice outdoor area and with a great location across the road from a very nice beach. The hosts were also superb by recommending places to go and things to see, making our trip epic. =)

My husband and I have just returned from a brief stay at the Kona Sugar Shack and only wish we had been able to stay there longer. It is a delightful place in every way and the hosts, John and Jae could not be nicer! We had the Mango Suite and even though it is at the back, we loved it. Everything was so clean, well maintained and thoughtfully furnished. The lush landscaping is beautiful and sitting by the pool in the morning or at night looking out at the ocean was such a treat. We're already planning our return to the Sugar Shack!
