We left the Sugar Shack not one week ago, and miss it already!! The Kona Sugar Shack is a well-appointed traditional Hawaiian home divided into 4 separate units, all with full kitchens and private baths. It sits on Ali'i Drive, just south of the bustling downtown seaside community of Kailua-Kona. Though Ali'i Drive is busy at times, the home is built up above the road so that you cannot see the traffic, but can enjoy unobstructed views of the ocean (and can see/hear the white water of crashing waves). The patio and pool area are a beautiful space to swim, barbecue, and enjoy a meal, all in the presence of tropical flowers, birds, and an incredible ocean view. Bring your binoculars so you can see the many boats and dolphins just off shore!
We stayed in the Ocean Suite with our family of 4, and it was the perfect size. This particular unit was well suited for a family with 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. It can also connect to the Mango suite downstairs, and the Anniversary Suite upstairs if you need more room. The Sugar Shack is well equipped with all the things you need for a day on the beach, snorkeling, boogie boarding, picnicking, etc. Coolers, blue ice, beach towels, umbrellas, boogie boards, pool noodles, a few kids life vests and some random snorkeling equipment are all included with the home. The beds were incredibly comfortable, and the pillows and sheets were soft (we really appreciated this). The bedrooms are near the back of the unit and are quiet, all with air conditioning and ceiling fans.
All in all, the Kona Sugar Shack is a Hawaiian treasure that we would love to return to. Owners Jae and John are very responsive and helpful with suggested places to see and things to do. Mahalo for a wonderful Big Island experience. Melissa, Jeff & kids.
