Aaron's is run by the nicest folks in Hawaii! Alan and Penne are super helpful, know the island intimately and are always willing to give advice to their guests. The rooms are clean, nice sized and, given that I have the haole's dislike of humidity, the A/C was a godsend. The food, much of it grown on the property, was very good. The B&B is located close to a non-touristy little beach, really a tide pool with some sand at low tide, that is great in the mornings.
We wanted to thank you for staying with us. We also wanted to thank you for your kind words. We wish you good health, happiness, and prosperity for the rest of 2014 and beyond! A hui hou kakou

The room is big enough for 2 people, everything was clean. Alan and Penne the keeper of the apartment are very sincere and they are everytime up to help you or to give you hints for your stay at the island.

When we arrived we were a little skeptical! There were three rooms in a row off of a short porch. But once we were inside it was everything we ever needed. The bed was great. There was a small frig in the room and a good size tv to watch. The bathroom had a double shower, so two could take a shower at the same time. There was as seperate kitchen with lots of breakfast stock. Fresh fruit, drinks, milk, cereal, etc. Overall we had a great stay. We only spent one night as we were catching a flight at 8am the next morning. But if we stayed several nights, this place would of been great at a great price.

This is a ridiculously good choice for a family vacation. Alan and Penne are extremely nice and responsive to all our questions before our trip and during our stay. Their guest rooms are super clean and they are kind enough to cook breakfast for us as well as providing fruits/snacks/milk every day. We also used their kitchen to cook lunch, which is super convenient when you travel. Their house is steps away from a nice beach park and a few minutes drive from popular snorkeling places on the Hilo side, such as Richardson Park. Everyone in my party are truly satisfied and would love to stay with them again next time we visit Hilo.
