About Susan & Garry Russell. Also see us at sugar-inc.com
We got tired of the Las Vegas scene after 30 years and started taking scuba trips to places all over the world. We discovered that the Big Island, Hawaii had everything we could possibly want in a place to live and to enjoy the ocean. Some of our favorite places to get in the water are right down the street or not too far away. Living in Papa Bay has given us all the privacy we could ever want. Everyone in this location has at least 3 acres of beautiful Hawaiian landscape.
Susan & Garry Russell. Also see us at sugar-inc.com purchased this House in 2002
Why Susan & Garry Russell. Also see us at sugar-inc.com chose Captain Cook
When we have guests, they have all the privacy that we enjoy living here. If our guests are divers or just want to snorkel, I can meet with them in the mornings and take off for different places to explore the ocean. The Volcano National Park is only 63 miles away and one can see how different the landscape is as you travel in any direction. This truly is one of the great areas to visit, away from the usual tourist situations. It's the real Hawaii.
What makes this House unique
We are unique in that we take the time to show you the beautiful water at our area of the Big Island. If you are a scuba diver we know the best places for shore diving. Not only are our tours free, we also supply air and weights at no charge. If you just want to snorkel, we will take you out to many of the same places on snorkel tours. Maybe you would want to come back as a scuba diver!

Lovely Memorable Aloha Adventure at Garry's Sugar Cottage!!
Our first trip to Hawaii & one we shall always remember an& treasure-thanks to Garry!! Garry is a wonderful wonderful host!! Right away when my girlfriend and l met him we liked him. He has such a lovely welcoming demeanor and extends himself to his guests.
He took us snorkelling to 2 different areas and spent 2hrs EACH time showing us the vast Pacific Ocean with all its beautiful stunning splendour. Kona is well known for one of the best places to snorkel in the world and something everybody should experience.
Garry is a Master Diver -certified in scuba diving and he has a vast amount of knowledge and you couldn't be in better hands!!
I had been snorkelling once in my life and my girlfriend had never gone snorkelling before and Garry patiently took the time to encourage and praise us as we both were learning. Garry even supplied us with snorkelling gear for us to use for no charge!!
He went snorkelling with us as well and spent time to show us the incredible, beautiful magical oceanic wild life that surrounded us-all for FREE!!
As far as his cottage is concerned it's not fancy but it definitely has all the amenities. We had our own private cottage with everything you need--even has a dryer for you to use for free!!
There are wild roosters that roam about and yes they make daily morning wake up calls but we did not mind. The cottage is nestled in a private quiet area away from others surrounded by tons of wonderful spectacular wild life plants and trees.
We had a hard time finding his place since we arrived to Kona at night. The directions can be challenging somewhat but would be easier to find his place if you travel during daylight.
Garry lives on the same property which makes it convenient if you need him or have any questions. I tend to ask a lot of questions and Garry was more than willing to answer them all. He was very helpful and he gave us many wonderful adventurous suggestions.
One suggestion he made was to book the Manta Ray night tour trip with Big Island Divers which we did and OMG that was totally awesome!!
Honestly l could go on and on about Garry but the best way to get to know him is to BOOK his place and then you too will see what a truly delightful, generous, kind, hearted gentleman he is!!
Garry's knowledge, welcoming presence, and experience of Kona made our first trip to Hawaii an incredible magical adventure that we shall always remember and treasure!! Thank you sooo much Garry!!!
Not fancy...basic but beautiful setting. Garry is a great dive host...fun dives. Will go back to dive with Garry. It’s about 35 minutes to Capt. Cook... so a bit of a drive to food, restaurants and dive rental place is an hour away.
Perfect cottage for snorkeling & diving!
We loved staying at SuGar Cottage... Susan & Garry visited with us upon arrival and were both warm & welcoming. The space is comfortable and very clean. Our favorite part, of course, was having Garry to show us around the beautiful waters in this part of the Big Island. He is very patient, safety focused and quite generous with both his time & expertise as a divemaster! We also enjoyed the large screened lanai... especially during a rainstorm. The full laundry room with a large sink was a nice amenity as well.
We will certainly be returning here in the future!
Thanks for a lovely stay in Papa Bay!
SuGar Cottage is awesome!
Great place & great hosts! We had a fabulous time. Garry was very generous with his time. For our first visit to Hawaii, staying at the SuGar Cottage made it easy to explore & get to know the area. Huge thank you to Garry!
Wow. This place is amazing
The sugar cottage is an awesome place and it is so friendly and inviting. Gary and Susan are very attentive hosts. Gary is an amazing dive guide and a truly enjoyable person to be around. We are looking foreward to our next trip with them.
We had an amazing time scuba diving.
