Shabby, but clean, bed and breakfast located within 2 blocks of the ocean and very close to Hilo airport. Penne prepared a hearty, self-serve breakfast each morning. Fresh eggs from her chickens were available for visitors to prepare in a frying pan in the kitchen.

Penny was the most gracious host, she did a lot for us during our 2 week stay with her, everything was exactly as the website said. The Breakfasts was outstanding each morning. She would accommodate you in any way. The yard was beautiful with all kinds of fruit trees and flowers. I enjoyed her 3 dogs and loved feeding the...

Cheap and convenient place close to the airport. You are not getting a five-star experience, but this is also not what you pay for. The room was spacious and clean and features basic amenities like free WIFI, air conditioning and a fridge. The staff was very friendly and helpful and even provided us with a basic dinner after we arrived...

Stayed here for 3 nights as part of a longer Hawaii trip. This rustic & local B&B was quite different to other Hawaii accommodation but very fitting with the Hilo atmosphere. The location was very convenient for the airport and the main highway to explore the east coast. (TIP: you really really do need to rent a car on big...

My husband and I stayed one night here and wish that we had stayed longer! The room was clean and the communal kitchen had everything we needed to make our own dinner for the night. We actually woke up before dawn to walk over to the nearby Onekahakaha Beach Park (<10 minutes away) and for a great sunrise. Penne made...

We recently spent two nights here and wish it could have been more. This place is absolutely wonderful. We had an early arrival in Hilo and had called Penne the week before our stay to ask if we could drop off our bags before heading out for the day - of course! We showed up and felt immediately at home....

Clean, comfortable, close to a wonderful beach, and quiet. Perfect so far! Then add in a wonderful hostess, a great breakfast, and proximity to town, restaurants, shopping. What more could you want? We only spent one night here, but my husband and I are planning to come back and spend a week... we love the Hilo side of the island....

Inexpensive, clean, comfortable, great breakfast, close to great beaches and restaurants. What more could you want? We only spent one night, but wished we had planned to stay longer. The owner is very friendly and provides excellent recommendations for nearby restaraunts, sights, and activities. She was also very accommodating and allowed us to drop off luggage early so we had...

We stayed for 3 nights but I would have been happier to stay 3 weeks! Alan & Penne are lovely people who do their best to make sure their guests are comfortable & well fed. The island breakfasts are delicious & include fresh squeezed juice from their trees when available. It was so very nice to go to sleep to...

We drove to Aaron's cottage and didn't know what and where we were headed to along the small road leading to the place. A nice surprise and I fell in love with the place. The owner Alan is a friendly family man with 3 dogs - 2 boisterous dalmatians Max and Missy who came out to greet us. Pantry was...
