Just got back from my 5th or 6th stay at the KSS. The location, right across from Magic Sands Beach and a half-mile from Kahaluu Beach park is great. coming home, a quick rinse in the outdoor shower and a relaxing dip in the pool - it is no ka oi. Since they closed the beach parking lot across the street and cleared away the shrubbery above the water, the view of the ocean is so much better. I love how the condos are so well appointed and equipped with everything you need. The provision of beach chairs, umbrellas, ice chests, floaties and noodles for the pool is such a great plus. Jae and John (the owners) are the nicest people you'll ever meet. Can't wait to go back. January, I hope??

Room Tip: All are good. Lanai in the anniversary suite has the best views

I received your check for $1,000 for my security deposit in this morning's mail.

We all enjoyed staying at the Sugar Shack. Alice's family arrived there first, and had time to see the house. When we got there, the grandkids had so much fun giving us a tour of all the suites and views. Since we had the whole house, there was plenty of room for each family to have their own private space. We also appreciated the beautiful furnishings and how well kept-up everything was. We loved the pool, and spent many leisurely mornings sitting beside it, just enjoying the view.

I was in the Honeymoon Suite, and really appreciated the grab bars in the shower!

We had such fun exploring Kona and the area, and it was really a memorable trip for our family, many of whom had never been there before. Thank you so much for providing such a beautiful house for our visit.

With lovely memories of Hawaii, Mahalo Anne

Room Tip: All rooms are great! Everyone said their mattresses were very comfortable. Rooms are set up well for families to being there together!!

I recently stayed at the KONA Sugar Shack and what a fantastic place! Beautiful, lovely landscaping and pool, perfect spot to see the nightly sunsets. The Sugar Shack is fully equipped with boogy boards, snorkel equipment, beach chairs, umbrellas, beach towels and coolers. It makes it very convenient to pack a lunch and head off to the beach for the day. There is a grill by the pool which we used most nights and enjoyed our dinners outside as the sun set. Very reasonably priced, full kitchens, comfortable beds and nice linens. I can not wait your go back and stay at the Kona Sugar Shack.

My husband and I stayed at the Sugar Shack for a week, and I have only good things to say about our stay. Every night, we cozied up on the patio for amazing views of the sunset over the ocean. We went to various beautiful beaches recommended by John and Jae, including the one right across the street. And when we just wanted to be away from it all, we relaxed by the pool on the property. Can't wait to return!

We rented this property for 11 nights with 5 Couples and one single person. We were able to get the entire property for our group. We had plenty of rooms and bathrooms for everyone. The location is great. From the pool yard you can enjoy the sunsets directly over the ocean view. On one night we watched whales breaching from the back patio of the home. Magic Sands beach is a 2 minute walk. Everything in the home was of high quality including the artwork throughout the house. Most of which is the owners own work. The owners ensured all the conveniences were there including supplies. There were plenty of appliances, dishes, refrigerators, and gas grills to have great home cooked meals. We has several great BBQ nights after scuba diving.
There were many other amenities such as beach lounge chairs, beach umbrellas, boogie boards and more. There were plenty of towels for everyone as well as extra for going to the beach. Really you just need to bring yourself, your personal bathroom items and food and everything else is there to have a great relaxing time.
