Elevation is at 1,000 feet overlooking the Pacific ocean with gentle Hawaiian breezes and no need for air-conditioning.
SuGar Cottage II is a self-contained 1,200 square foot top story home with two bedrooms(each containing a queen size bed),one bath, dining room, living room, full kitchen and a large screened in lanai which also contains a full size washer and dryer.

My family of 4 and I stayedvat the Sugar Cottage II for a total of 9 nights. It is a fantastic place to stay. Garry is a great person who is available and very helpful! We are not divers so Garry took us snorkeling at Two Step and we had an awesome time. Garry lent us snorkeling gear and beach equipment through our stay.
We bought groceries and saved a lot on eating out by cooking at the cottage daily. We loved the geckos and set out fruit for them on the awesome lanais. Coqui frogs put us to sleep nightly.
This is the 4th time we have stayed with Garry and Susan. We love the Papa Bay Area. There is fantastic flora and fauna on the premises and a variety of birds, frogs and geckos. It is semi secluded with a symphony of birdsong and sounds from other various inhabitants.
We returned to Sugar Cottage to commemorate my passage into the "Golden Age". Garry and Susan were very accommodating and helped make the transition very present. I highly recommend staying with Susan and Garry if you have a Sense of Adventure. Garry will do his best to make your diving or snorkeling experience memorable ( in a good way)! If you have been diving on the Big Island before..... hook up with Garry and he can show you a few new places to dive and some of his favorite critters/fishes to look at.
It's a great place to unwind, relax and have a blast!
I can recommend staying at Garry and Sue's place without any reservations. They are great people who will make you feel very welcome. Garry enjoys showing guests around, taking them scuba diving or snorkeling. The cottage itself is very comfortable. It is, however, a long, windy 45-minute drive from from Kona, so buy your food and other necessities in Kona. There's a Costco, Target and Safeway in town. Pick up a cheap cooler or two. Figure out how many breakfasts, lunches, dinners you'll have before you plan to be in Kona again, and pick it all up before driving out to Garry's. The cottage has paper towels, utensils, plates, etc. You might want to pick up salt and pepper, vinegar or sauces. You'll be set, then, to hang out and bop around without worrying about taking that long drive to Kona again. Say hey to the geckos for me! They're very cool little visitors.
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.
We stayed in the 2 bedroom home and had the opportunity to dive with Garry. He is a true southern gentleman and great host. While the home is rustic it had everything we needed for a great dive vacation. IF YOU ARE A DIVER THIS IS THE PLACE TO STAY.
This property provides easy shore access to multiple local dive sites. These accommodations provide all of the basic amenities, but the real value is the close proximity to Ho'okena (for the two-step dive site), Miloli'i, South Point (for cliff diving and access to Green Sand Beach), Punalu'u (for the black sand and turtle sightings), Nahalehu (for the scenery). Gary's diving expertise is excellent, and for me resulted in a half-day of diving with dozens of resident spinner dolphins. Amazing.
