Great place to stay in Hilo

4.4 on April 22, 2016

We stayed for one night, April 14, 2016. The room was clean and tidy and the owners are friendly. The breakfast was fresh and tasty and being able to sit in the backyard under canopy eating home grown fruit and eggs was real nice. I forgot my computer bag! Penne went out of her way to help arrange the shipment back to Bellingham! Definitely appreciated and highly recommended.

Great pet friendly place

Best place I've stayed in Hilo with my dog. Room was very cozy and quiet and is within walking distance to the beach and parks. They also serve a great breakfast to start your day.


Cozy, homely atmosphere in a tropical setting

3.4 on January 01, 2016

Basic, but good sized rooms in a beautiful, tropical neighborhood. We especially enjoyed sitting outside to have breakfast in the yard, surrounded by fruit trees and pretty flowers. The owner even let my teenaged kids pick a coconut and hack it open! Fun way to start our vacation. It's located in a quiet neighborhood a half block away from a small, but very pretty beach.


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

4.4 on March 29, 2015

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.
