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.

I WILL BE BACK FOR MORE DIVING ADVENTURES WITH GARRY AT SUGAR COTTAGE.

  • 5 of 5
I am a 32 year old woman who travelled solo to the Big Island. I booked SuGar cottage last minute as I did not decide to visit Big Island until the day before I arrived. I had a great time diving with Garry! I did not have any diving equipment and did not do a lot of research on places to go. Garry provided me with all the needed equipment free of charge and we completed 4 wonderful dives. I had not gone diving in over 2 years but Garry was very patient and attentive. I have never had such an easy time diving. I could not have been more pampered! Plus, it was incredibly valuable to have such an experienced tour guide. We even dove with dolphins, the first time in my life! What a steal of a deal to have a clean and comfortable place to stay, an incredible tour guide, and lots of friendly suggestions on places to go. The cottage also had several travel books on the Big Island that I made use of. No need to buy bottled water (as I did) since Garry and Susan provided a water cooler in the cottage. No need be concerned that there is no AC as it really did get quite cool at night.

I cannot wait to go back. Next time, it will be for a longer stay :) Thank you Garry and Susan.

THIRD GREAT STAY WITH SUSAN AND GARY

  • 5 of 5
This was the third time we have stayed with Susan and Gary. We keep returning because we always have a good stay with them. The cottage is very comfortable. It has a full kitchen; washer / dryer, screened in lanai were we ate most of our meals in the company of the resident geckos. The bathroom had been updated since or last visit. The cottage really felt more like a home, than a rental this trip. A comfortable place to come to at the end of a day of diving, hiking to the green sands beach, or our day trip to Volcano National park.
As of the end of this trip we have done 30 great dives with Gary. In my past reviews I have listed all the marine life and incredible landscapes we have seen diving with Gary. This trip on one dive we had six dolphins all to ourselves. They circled us for about 30 minutes at 60 feet. Often coming with in a few feet of us. There were a lot of divers at two step that morning, some locals, several with guides but Gary was the only one to find the dolphins.
On our last night we want into town to see a play. Gary was in the orchestra and Susan was able to tie down a couple tickets for us. It was a nice way to end our trip to the big island.

GREAT STAY, AWESOME DIVING!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I stayed with Garry and Susan for a week and had a blast. When we return to Kona again some day we will definitely book with them again. If you like being near all the action on your vacation than this is probably not the place for you. However, if your looking for something a little less touristy and if you love to dive, particularly shore dive, you'd be hard pressed to find a better option in Kona.

Garry took us to some amazing dive sites where we were often the only folks in the water. We felt truly blessed to have Garry as a guide and dive master. Some of the dive sites in Kona can get a bit sketchy in the winter. Garry knows exactly which ones to hit on a given day based on conditions and is extremely knowledgeable and safe underwater navigator.

As far as the rental itself goes, its clean, and includes everything you need. We couldn't ask for more. Though, you might want to bring either ear plugs or a pellet gun (you decide) to deal with the rooster that lives nearby. We're early risers and I grew up on a farm but the repeated 2am wake-up calls were a bit too much for even us! LOL My wife made me stick with the ear plugs ;)
