SuGar Cottage: Sweet!

  • 5 of 5

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.

Fun Location Near Great Beaches

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.

Great dive vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

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.

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.
