5 star hospitality provided by innkeepers Allan and Penny! I have never been in friendlier facility. Every morning fresh fruits for a breakfast, eggs from own garden and cereals was something what we really didn't expected :) Allan is really helpful with everything! Thank you once again for an amazing stay and hope to see you soon!

Our one night stay was so unexpectedly nice with a cozy cottage setting, a canapy in the yard with lounge seating to drink our wine while enjoying the flowers and fruit trees. Homemade scones, sausage and every Hawaiin fruit for breakfast in the little kitchen with more breakfast items to choose from and fresh eggs from their chickens. A quiet...

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights while in Hilo and would not recommend staying here. Thank goodness the bedding and shower were clean but the carpet was stained and the room was dirty. The breakfast offered each morning was fine but the shared kitchen needed a good cleaning.

We stayed one night at Aaron's Cottages while visiting Volcano's National Park after reading some positive reviews here. We were NOT disappointed. We wanted to "live like a local" for the limited time we were on the big island and we met that goal. The hotel was about a 6 minute drive to Hilo Airport (ITO) and a block walk...

Clean, comfortable rooms, with fridge in room and access to a shared kitchen. Good breakfast items for self-use including fresh eggs from the host's chickens. Friendly hosts. We only had one night in Hilo and this was an option we'd use again.

We stayed here for 2 nights as we needed something close to the airport and not too far from the volcanoes park. This place was perfect and exceeded all of our expectations. Now if you are looking for a 5 star resort, this is not the place, nor are you paying enough here to expect that. However if you are...

Our stay started off on a confusing note: we've stayed at a number of B&Bs, but we've never had to hunt around for our hosts before, until our stay at Aaron's Cottage. Eventually we found a note attached to our front door and got settled. Not too long later we met one our hosts, Alan, who was very friendly and...

We did not get the meet the owners, we arrived at 4PM and there was no one to check us in and we left in the early morning. Just an envelope with our names and some instructions about how to get in. We stayed in the room across the kitchen. The room was very dirty. The mattress was falling apart....

There is a community kitchen that is stocked with condiments and snacks You won't...

This is a steal! The location is great with the beach just a short walk from the property. We walked down each evening and the first trip we saw a beautiful turtle beached. Penne and Alan are incredibly friendly and made our stay incredibly enjoyable. We called ahead to ask if we could store our luggage and without hesitation were...
