  • just what we were looking for

    "After a few rainy days in the Hilo side, we were looking for a quiet and nice place for some sunshine and it turned out this place was just what we needed - the house was beautifully decorated and the location overlooking the small subdivision and with a gorgeous sunset view made us felt luxurious and relaxed. It's an hour's drive south of the airport so the "quietness and remoteness" was perfect for us. Upon seeing the lanai and bed with mosquito net and the view, the one stallion in our group commented how he can see romance being "kindled" in a place like this! The house is at the end of the street with view of the hillside and it's resident herd of insufferably cute goats. Jogging up and down various steep streets was a nice challenge for me but my wife had to walk them although she did fairly well. The beach was nice but small and the temptation to get into the water was great seeing others playing in the surf. Definitely a place for a romantic get away and R&R. The owners were great, and the cleaning lady was incredibly helpful and understanding when we got into a jam with our rental car on the way out - we accidentally locked the car with the engine running but with her help we still got to the airport with time to spare. Thank you!!"

  • Fun Location Near Great Beaches

    "Enjoyed our three days at the Sugar Cottage. Great snorkeling trip with Garry as our guide. He provided all the equipment and expertise needed. Rustic jungle like setting. Lots of songbirds to listen too and watch."

  • Barb and Jim Herman

    "What a view. Harry was a very accommodating host, giving us great info about the area. The cottage is separate from the main house, surrounded by vegetation and very private. We really enjoyed our week here."

  • Best Vacation EVER!

    "Dave and Beth are amazing hosts. The suite was more than clean, the bed was very comfortable, the entire environment was so appealing and relaxing. We spent 12 days there. They made sure we had everything we needed. We grilled dinner every night by the pool, and swam after dinner. The kitchen had everything a cook could want, tools, spices, oils, vinegar. It is located just a few minutes from fabulous snorkeling. It is very quiet and relaxing. The location was perfect for heading out to adventures every day. We made guacamole out of the avocados Dave left on our porch, and enjoyed eating it on our private lanai. I can't recommend this place enough for a couple that wants to truly vacation. Our hope is to get back there to do it again! Congratulations to Dave and Beth for being the best hosts ever!"
