The best and only way to stay on the Big Island! The Kona Sugar Shack has a great location on Ali'i Drive--its removed enough from touristy Kona, yet still has access to all the great amenities such as grocery stores and beaches. It is a great 'base' from which to venture out all over the Island, we never bothered staying anywhere else. Our hosts Jae and John were extremely attentive and friendly, and very helpful with tips about sightseeing. It is situated right between a great snorkeling bay 5 minutes to the left (Kahalu), and a great boogie boarding beach (White Sands) to the right. There are grills outside which you can bbq on--its nice to do after a day-long of exploring, swimming and hiking. They just added solar and are trying to 'go green' etc. Beautiful gardens tended with lots of care. What a fantastic place!!!
