Aarons Cottage, what a deal!

4.0 on May 13, 2015

Our room in the cottage was clean and roomy and the bed was comfortable. We felt welcome to use the kitchen with its supplies of fresh eggs, bread, cereal, and condiments. The best part was chatting with our host, Penne, who was very generous with her time. She taught us about all the plants and fruits in her diverse garden and was full of great information and local lore.


Would've liked to stay longer

We really enjoyed our stay. It was perfect for our family with two kids and my parents. There was a great yard for the kids to explore and run. It is minutes walking from a great beach & tide pool area for kids and a short drive to a park where we saw sea turtles. Our host was wonderful. She cooked a delicious breakfast, cracked open a coconut for the kids, and was full of helpful advice. I would definitely stay there again if we ever return to Hilo.


We Loved Our Stay

Inexpensive, clean, comfortable, great breakfast, close to great beaches and restaurants. What more could you want? We only spent one night, but wished we had planned to stay longer. The owner is very friendly and provides excellent recommendations for nearby restaraunts, sights, and activities. She was also very accommodating and allowed us to drop off luggage early so we had more room in our car while sightseeing the day we arrived. We plan to return for a much longer stay.

Beautiful

We only stayed here one night on our way around the island. The rooms are big and clean. And the service was rreally good! They have a beautiful garden in the back so you can sit outside in the evening and for breakfast in the morning. The food was really good! It's a bit from downtown, but as long as you have a car it's no problem. Better to stay here. Annelinn, Norway


Great stay

We so enjoyed our stay at Aaron's Cottage. The best part was Alan who did his very best to see that we had everything we needed. The breakfast in the AM was different each day and very good. We enjoyed eating with the other guests and getting to know them. The Cottage was very nicely located near everything.


Great Stay at Aaron's

4.0 on November 18, 2014

We are sorry to say we had only a quick overnight here, but plan to come back and enjoy a longer stay at Aaron's. We are glad we choose this over the big hotels, much quieter, cheaper and a chance to experience living in Hilo's neighborhoods. The room was old fashioned but clean and comfortable, the serve yourself breakfast was simple but fresh and good! Our hosts were very nice, enjoyed talking to them.


Great Place to Stay

Very comfortable B&B

4.4 on October 20, 2014

Alan and Penne are wonderful hosts! The cottage is close to the airport, shopping, beach and restaurants. Limited noise from the airport and little traffic since cottage is located on dead end street. The hosts dogs are charmers! Breakfast was nice and the use of the kitchen was great. Would definitely stay here again.
