Thank you J and John! We love Kona Sugar Shack (KSS). We stayed at
Kona Sugar Shack (KSS) a few years back and had a wonderful time. This year, we decided to revisit on a family vacation with our son and daughter-in-law. We have found that Hawaii (the Big Island) is not as crowded in May as at other seasons. We went to many beaches and had no trouble finding relatively secluded places to sunbathe, swim and snorkel. Best of all if we wanted to hang closer to home some days, there was an incredible cove in which to snorkel right out in front of KSS and another down the road. Also, we could choose to enjoy the pool, lounge around and sunbathe, or lie under the umbrellas and read. We were surprised that the KSS is even quieter now that the parking area across the street has been closed since it borders a traditional religious site. KSS is big enough to host a family reunion in one place and yet spacious enough that individuals still feel they have some space of their own... 4 kitchens, many living rooms and an incredible lanai with a huge dinner table to enjoy dinner while watching the sunset (watch for the green flash). We went out to the numerous restaurants close by, but our favorite thing to do was to cook in the huge kitchen or use the grill on the pool patio to cook up some steaks or banana leaf fish (with banana leafs right on the property, all with fresh fish, vegetables, and tropical fruit from the fresh produce stalls in the market just down the street. We left with stories of Manta Rays, eels, dolphins, turtles, and fun. Great times with family and friends around great food and drink! We are looking forward to our next trip to Kona Sugar Shack and hope we will be able to bring along even more family and friends. I suggest at least 10 days to have enough time to enjoy the full benefits of a vacation on the Big Island.
