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 Papa
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!

Wonderful time snorkeling and Cave exploring
Gary was such a wonderful host! He took our family out snorkeling and we swam with dolphins. One swam up a foot below my wife! She held back from rubbing its belly. The next day we explored the worlds largest network of lava tubes, at Kona Kai caverns. A wonderful experience we’ll not forget. Thank you!!
We instantly connected with Gary and he made the stay very homely
Wife and I had had never snorkeled. Gary provided us with adequate equipment and gave us a detailed lesson. We were “pros” by the time we got out of the water. The cottage was very cozy and had everything we needed. We will be visiting him again in the future and go scuba diving with him
Great Snorkeling near Captain Cook!
We really enjoyed staying at Garry's "Sugar Cottage". It was clean and roomy with everything we needed! Garry was the best Host and took us on a guided snorkel tour of "Two Step". My sister was a bit nervous of going out snorkeling in the ocean but with Garry's coaching, she did great! The snorkeling was stunning with all the beautiful colored fish! Thank you very much Garry for a wonderful stay!! I would highly recommend staying at Garry's especially if you would like to go snorkeling or scuba diving!
My husband enjoyed diving with Garry a lot! Susan and Garry provided everything we needed during our stay. Wonderful place to be! Thank you!!
Awesome stay and dive
SuGar Cottage, sweet as home
SuGar cottage was well maintained and fully equipped. I had everything that I ever needed in the cottage. My favorite part of the cottage was the gezebo, I love chilling there with a drink while being surrounded by the greeneries and wild chickens. Gary was a very attentive gentleman. He made sure we got everything we needed when we checked in. He was very nice to offer us a free scuba diving experience at a nearby site. What I enjoyed the most was actually our conversation during the diving interval, he was very humorous and had a lot of interesting and inspiring stories to share. I was amazed by his passion of life and energy.
