We stayed with Penne & Allen one night March 13, 2014 prior to flying out of Hilo early the next morning. We concur with all the positive comments of previous reviews. Most memorable for us was the wonderful breakfast to go that Penne send us off to the airport with. We had spent three days already on the Kona side... More

This is a wonderful little place, just outside the town of Hilo, with it's own little (beautiful at sunrise) beach. Alan and Penne are the most welcoming hosts, full of information about where to go and what to see. I was sorry we could only be there one night. The bed was comfortable, the bathroom was great, the shower was... More

Spent only 1 night here but so worth it.....innkeepers Penne and Alan Tanabe are the epitome of warmth, kindness, generosity, and hospitality! Following a lengthy flight from the mainland, we were looking for accommodations that were close and convenient and Aaron's far exceeded our expectations.....the relaxing hot shower and comfortable bed were pure bliss after an exhausting day! We awoke... More

My husband and I stayed at Aarons Cottage for 3 nights. This place is a little slice of Hilo (heaven). Just 5 minutes to a secret beach. It does not have the amenities of a big resort, but it has all the charm of Hilo. Penne and Alan made us feel very comfortable and welcomed. The breakfasts were a delight... More

My husband and I stayed here at Aaron's Cottage for 4 nights.. before we came here we stayed at Uncle Billys Kona Bay Hotel and Aaron's is far better. Penne and Alan treated us like family. All the breakfast that Penne made was delicious and fresh. All the fruits came from her garden. She made an awesome fresh mango salsa.... More

Warm hospitality!!!! So glad we had time to relax and enjoy a morning with Penne, Alan, and the other guests! We arrived rather late in the evening, were tired from touring, went straight to bed and were rather disappointed in the comfort of the mattress. In the morning, the mattress was soon forgotten as we enjoyed an array of freshly... More

My wife and were guests at this little slice of life in the beautiful city of Hilo Hawaii October 15 thru October 17. While the cottages did not offer all the amenities of a typical resort the hospitality of Alan and Penne made our stay warm and enjoyable. Our room was clean and had everything we needed for our stay... More

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights at the beginning of June during our recent tour around Hawaii and thought it was great. We stayed in the middle unit (i.e. neighbours on both sides), but never particularly found noise problematic. The room was a good size, with a very comfortable bed and a good shower in the bathroom.... More

This is where we stay we we need to be in Hilo, near the beaches and lagoons this area is known for. The owners treat you like famiy and the price is right. It's not real fancy, but all we need for a good night's sleep.
