DIVE WITH DOLPHINS

  • 4 of 5
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.

GREAT PLACE TO STAY! FUN AND LOTS OF LAUGHS DIVING WITH GARRY!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here for 8 nights while on our one might visit to the Big Island. We chose to stay here so that we could do some diving with Garry and see some of the local spots he loves to dive. We weren't dissapointed..Gary showed us lots of interesting sea life and we saw many new things...a conger eel...you can only find them in Hawaii and Garry has one that likes to meet new divers. He also has a puffer fish that hangs out in a hole under this arch. It was the first time I heard whales in the water while diving..it was so cool! Also saw a Titan Scorpion fish for the first time...those guys are really big compared to the scorpion fish we see in the Atlantic. Garry's place is nice and cozy...not fancy...but the beds are comfortable and the kitchen is well equipped. We stayed there with 4 people, 2 couples and we each had a private bedroom. We loved our stay and Garry and Susan are great people who go out of their way to make their guests comfortable!!!

THERE IS A REASON THIS PROERY HAS SO MEANY FIVE STAR REVIEWS

  • 5 of 5
This was the second time we stayed with Gary and Susan.
This was first time at the larger cottage. We were very comfortable in the cottage, we had every meal on the large lanai with several of the resident geckos to keep us company. The cottage is complete. It has a well equipped kitchen and a washer & dryer. We had many peaceful evenings on the lanai listening to the frogs.
The dives with Gary have always been good. He is very patient, always safe, and he really knows the area. This trip we had some exceptional dives.
Day one spinner dolphins. Lots of spinner dolphins, first snorkeling and than later we were diving at about 35 feet. Very memorable.
Before the week was over we saw a manta ray, eagle rays, and five hammerhead sharks. These were in addition to all the fish, turtles, coral, crustations, and amazing underwater landscapes we know we will see when diving with Gary.
If you like to dive the deal Gary & Susan are offering is impossible to beat. I highly recommend this rental.

THE BEST DIVING EXPERIENCE EVER !!!

  • 5 of 5
My family of four (2 adults and 2 teenagers) really enjoyed our stay at SuGar Cottage. We couldn't have asked for two nicer people to make us feel welcome in our vacation home. The cottage, while certainly not fancy schmancy, was very adequate for our stay. There was plenty of room to just hang out and read, watch geckos, listen to birds, and relax. Most importantly, the diving was extraordinary. We felt so safe and pampered by Garry. He took us on 6 spectacular dives and made sure that we had an awesome experience. We are already looking forward to our next diving vacation on the Big Island. SuGar cottage is also in a good location for people who want to explore the green and black sand beaches near the South Point, as well as hike around in the Volcano National Park.

SIMPLY AWESOME!

  • 5 of 5
We visited Kona for the first time with our three kids. Gary and Susan's
cottage was just the home away from our home that we were hoping to be in.
We spend 5 wonderful days in their Sugar cottage. It is a beautiful area -
can see the ocean in the distance from the lanai, lots of friendly birds and gecko's, very peaceful and
serene. The cottage was clean, well stocked and perfect for our family of five. There were balls, board
games, playing cards etc for little kids to stay busy with. Our kids loved
running and catching/taking pictures of the gecko's. The cottage was more then we expected.
Gary truly won our kids hearts. He patentially taught them how to snorkel for the first time and we
totally loved every location that Gary took us to. Gary would dive down and bring up and explain
different objects (starfish, sea cucumber etc). Note that Gary took us to a Scuba shop where we rented wet suits and gear for our whole family. It was very reasonable and we got a discount due to Gary. Also, anticipating our needs, Gary provided us with his boggie boards, a life vest, mats for the beach, bags to carry stuff and offered to allow us to use his Kayaks. Gary took us to places that we would have never have seen otherwise and pointed us to beautiful beaches that were not at all busy.
On one beach, it was one other family and us. After spending several days at the places Gary took us
to, going to a "normal" tourist places (ex: beaches near the hotels in Kona) felt odd. We felt like we
were locals going to tourist traps.
Susan made Christmas very sweet for our kids, she brought a big platter of
cookies which disappeared within minutes...thanks Susan!!!
Although we did not go diving since we are not certified, we sure hope
we can come back soon to Gary and Susan's cottage to go scuba diving with the
dive Master!
We called and spoke to Gary and Susan a few times before and after we booked our stay to plan our trip. They both were very help. If one of their two cottages are available on your travel dates - don't think twice, just book it. You will not be disappointed.

Thank you Susan and Gary, you're the best!

AMAZING FOLKS!

  • 5 of 5
My review may seem to be titled strangely but it is appropriate. This was the 3rd time we stayed at SuGar cottage. Every time we go we enjoy it more. Gary is a very competant dive master (and he really has his work cut out with me as i am very distractible). He always ensures everyone is comfortable with dive conditions before entering the water and is quick to poit out creatures of interest.
The cottage itself is clean and the bed is very comfortable. The geckos put on a show outside as do the birds if you decide to feed them.
Through the years both Sue and Garry have become more like friends or family than landlords. We will be returning over and over i am sure!
