Kona Sugar Shack

Condo in Kailua-Kona

The beach-adjacent Sugar Shack hits the sweet spot for vacation rentals, but almost all rooms, except the anniversary suite, are rented on a weekly basis. The friendly, artistic hosts have created a solar-powered oasis with funky, colorful and eclectic decor and relaxing, kid-friendly vibes. Extras include a shared outdoor kitchen, coin-operated laundry, miniscule pool and beach and baby gear to borrow.

Expect a one-time cleaning fee ($125 to $275). Ouch.
