This is our second trip to barking sands. They are huge cottages and you can't beat the view Falling asleep to the sounds of waves crashing. Can't beat that. Cottage is very clean and beds are comfortable. Washer and dryer is a plus too Kitchen is fully functional and has a BBQ for the nights you want to stay in.

This place is wonderful. We walked on the beach for hours day and night and felt like we had the place to ourselves. You see spinner dolphins, the boats going to and from Na Pali coast, amazing stars at night and views of Niihau in the distance. If you are eligible go you will forget all the small issues that...

Where to begin…we stayed here from 12/07 – 12/13 in cottage 1131. As both HawaiiKaiGail, dated May 31, 2015 and JustJohnPortageMI, dated August 29, 2015 have detailed in great depth the advantages and drawbacks of the PMRF Beach Cottages. During our stay, we had no major issues with bugs, birds (besides the ubiquitous chickens) or such. There were a few... More

Read the other reviews, both good and bad. They all hit the mark on the cottages and the beach/surf/coral etc. this review will amplify a few negative aspects of cottage 1110 in hopes management reads these. The cottage on and of itself was fine. It could have been cleaned better or if that isn't reasonable, ample cleaning supplies should be... More

We had cottage 1124, front row ocean view for 11 nights. This was our third visit. This is a great place, gorgeous view. We were there in late September and the surf was big. The bedrooms are air conditioned but we like to open the windows and listen to the ocean and the wedgetail shearwater birds that start calling in... More

When we first arrived we were pleasantly surprised with how large the cottages are. The bedrooms are spacious as are the common rooms. However, as soon as we entered the first bedroom there was a live scorpion on the floor. In every corner of every room there are roach tracks, and that kind of grosses me out. We battled with...

First, see the review of this place by HawaiiKaiGail, dated May 31, 2015. She did an excellent job, and I'll just add to what she said. (That's an unsolicited testimonial.) We stayed here for a week in August. You should enjoy your stay here, if you choose to go to this place.The biggest hesitation I have is that if you... More

I had wanted to stay here for YEARS. We are now residents on Oahu so we took a week's vacation to Kauai...and this was our first thought when it came to lodging. We stayed 3 nights and could have stayed 3 weeks! This is what we found and some tips & info for your stay. Only open to active duty... More

Hey -- why are there so many roosters and no hens? Where are they hiding those ladies? We arrived at BS cottage at midnight. Our paperwork was at the gate as promised and check in was seamless. The cottage was roomy and clean. Everything we need is available, including a coffeemaker, hairdryer, and wifi. This is not the St. Regis,... More

We stayed in one of the Beach Front Cottages the end of September & first week in October. Great location, great accommodations. The staff was very helpful and pleasant. Lot of privacy. Felt like we had the whole beach to ourselves. If you have the opportunity to stay here make sure you have dinner at Shenanigans. Great food!! Will definitely... More
