Private room w/ ensuite 3/4 bath, shared kitchen in a tropical garden setting just 3 minute's easy walk to coral sand beaches and 5 minute's drive to downtown Hilo.
Aaron's Cottage is a delightful place to stay, just minutes from downtown Hilo and many nice beachside parks where you can bask in the sun, watch sea turtles at play and hang with the locals. However, one if the best things about this place are the hosts, Alan and Penne Tanabe. They're a welcoming team that creates some amazingly plentiful and delicious breakfasts, keeps the cottages clean and bright, the grounds manicured and in bloom with a variety of native flora and are just great people to associate with. Aaron's Cottage is just over a mile to Hilo airport, and close to major arterial roads, like the 11 that will take you to Volcano and other major coastal attractions. This place has a very high occupancy rate and it's easy to see why. If you have the chance to stay here, grab it, cherish it. It will be one of the highlights on your travel reel.
Alan is very nice and attentive. Alan's breakfast is very delicious. The premises could use a little TLC.
Alan was warm greeting us, showing where everything was. Gave us some tips on beach walking and we loved the communal kitchen that was available all the time. Alan and penne provided warm bis quits, fresh fruit, fresh eggs raised from their chickens plus the kitchen was filled with anything you could want from cereals, milk, snacks, and cooking utensils for longer stays. Room was fine with everything you needed including an umbrella. Yard was lovely.
