Excellent for Divers and Snorkelers!

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I stayed here for 5 nights as part of a 3-1/2 week xmas vacation. Cottage is clean and comfortable with all the kitchen basics. There is a charcoal BBQ outside which we didn’t get a chance to use. Also have a convenient outside area for rinsing and hanging dive equipment. Appreciated the seclusion and quiet - very good choice if you aren’t into the touristy scene. Hosts Garry and Susan are lovely! Enjoyed 3 dives at Honaunau Bay with Garry who was kind enough to lend me some gear as well as the advertised weights and air. Garry is a cautious and conservative diver so, as an infrequent diver, I felt very safe with him as guide. Saw tons of fish, a few turtles, heard the whales calling and was introduced to the local reef shark. This place is a terrific deal especially for scuba divers - would love to stay again. The hosts made it cosy and welcoming. Chatting with them and diving with Gary was a spectacular added bonus to the stay.

Wonderful setting, even better hosts! Susan and Gary are amazing people. We love going diving every day we can with Gary, he is an amazing guide and took us to the coolest locations everytime we go. We look forward to seeing something new every trip! We have been twice now and couldn't recommend it more, you won't find better hosts willing to help with any small thing. Thank you so much, and we can't way until our next stay!

Fantastic Dive Holiday

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at Sugar Cottage for a week at the beginning of Nov. The cottage was very comfortable and quiet. Garry was an excellent Dive Master. I did 6 terrific dives with him. The sites we dove were incredible - so clear and lots to see. We enjoyed exploring the southern part of the island. Wish we had stayed longer as there is so much to see & do on the Big Island. A big thanks to Garry & Susan - we so enjoyed our visit.

Quiet cottage with friendly hosts. Great diving too...

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Sugar Cottage for 6 nights recently and we had a blast. Garry and Susan are such amazing hosts.

The location is a bit hard to find if you are looking for it at night. But in the day time or with a good GPS, it should not be a problem. The cottage has a well stocked kitchen and we enjoyed cooking lunch/dinner. The nights are cool and quiet.

As a dive master, Garry would brong his guests diving at no charge. We rented BC’s and regulators from Espace Plongee/Seaspace diving in Captain Cook which saved us the hassle of hauling all those gears from home. As we are staying at Sugar Cottage, Espace gave us a discount.Garry brought us diving at Two Steps and Miloill Bay. Garry would point to us interesting creatures that he found. The best encounter would be the pair of Hammerhead sharks during our last dive with him.

If you would like info on where to go, Garry has lots of ideas and recommendations. Trust him and you will not be disappointed.

We are already planning to go back to Big Island and Sugar Cottage will definitely be where we will be staying.

Great Stay - Amazing Diving

  • 5 of 5

My Husband and I spend 4 nights at the Sugar Cottage on our honeymoon. The cottage itself is nothing extraordinary, but it is very private, well equipped, and comfortable. What makes this place five stars is the diving. Unfortunately we were only able to do three dives with Garry due to our schedule, but they were the best dives that we did in Hawaii. Susan & Garry are wonderful hosts, and Garry is very knowledgeable about diving in the area. He took us to places we would have never gone with a commercial outfit. We certainly hope to return so that we can go on many more dives with Garry.
