“Nice budget place!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

I needed a budget place to stay for one night that wasn't too far from the airport and Aaron's Cottage was just the place! For the price (in Hawaii) it was a good value. For $70 I had a private room, comfy bed, refrig, micro, internet, my own bathroom, free parking, and breakfast!

It's not fancy; but then again, you get what you pay for and thankfully they keep it affordable. It was about a $20 cab ride from the airport, the cab driver couldn't find it, and it's not close to much (except apparently a fantastic beach that I didn't make it to.) If you are a light sleeper, you may want to bring ear plugs as my room was right on the corner, so I heard anyone pull up and walking to their room, however, overall it was thankfully very quiet. Breakfast was plentiful.

I would recommend!

We stayed at this great B&B the owners Alan and Penne are a great hosts. We arrived before check in time after very long flight from Australia and Alan and Penne were very kind to let us check in early. The rooms were very clean and comfortable the breakfast wraps were delicious. Alan and Penne were so helpful with information on what to do on the island they are very knowledgeable and will go out of there way to help with anything you may want or need to know. We would recommend this B&B if you are looking for a great budget place to stay

Great place to stay. Love the home-made coconut muffins and fruit grown on the property in the morning. Tiki Lamps were a nice addition. Owners were very nice. I'm a diabetic and they brought in sugar free syrup for the pancakes they made. Nice local beach. We are going back in 2 years and staying longer! :-)

Room Tip: There all good!

What a lovely place to stay! Just off the main road, but quiet. Spotlessly clean and very comfortable. Lovely gardens. Welcoming host. Just wish I'd been staying longer but was a one-night stopover before flying out - missed out on breakfast as I had to leave early. Would recommend to singles/couples as excellent value. If I ever get the chance to visit Hawaii again I'll DEFINITELY stay here!

This hotel at $70.00/night (inclusive of taxes) is truly one good buy. The room was clean though pretty basic. It also had a coffeemaker with coffee, sugar and creamer. The host Alan was very nice, welcomed us and showed us where everything was. The bathroom was clean and complete with face towels (some hotels don't give them anymore). The "continental" breakfast had had fruit, friendship bread, cereals and milk, cheese and muffins. There were also some home grown eggs which one could cook. We would have extended our stay; we originally booked for one night only but the cottage was already fully booked for the rest of the week.

We have been here 3 weeks today. We leave tomorrow. If you are looking for paradise this is it! The room is comfotable, quiet, clean, and very accomadating. The owners Penne and Alan are exceptional! Max and Missy are dalmations and will help you feel at home. Charlie is the most adorable 130#baby you will ever meet. He plays with coconuts because he tears up toys in 2 minutes.....They all have helped me be away from my 7# poodle at home. They will capture your heart. The area is very beautiful and the suggested drives are will worth it. We even found some drives the owners didnot know about. You will be treated with a wonderful breakfast everyday, and with the warm loving friendship of Penne and Alan. There are only 3 units so they do not stay empty long. MAKE YOUR RESERVATIONS NOW!
You will never regret the warmth, love, and time spent here with Max, Missy, and Charlie.

Room Tip: Don't wait book now. Air conditioning not needed. Kitchen if you want to fix your own meal. C...

The place was clean and better than expected as I have never stayed in a b &b. The owners were very accomodating and made a special breakfast from the normal as per our request.
The husbands wanting something more heartier and indeed it was. Great value. Thanks again !

Room Tip: No difference-all rooms are exactly the same.
