Was here 2009 just the hubby & I and we stayed in a very basic 3 bdr house on the beach. Nice...but basic. I expected the same for this year but was pleasantly surprised when we were assigned a cute, pretty, renovated (or fairly new) cottage just off the beach. It had cute couches updated dining table and kitchen, two... More

This place was awesome. The cottages set right on the beach and for the price of $75 a night you can't go wrong. They are located on the west side of the island which can be somewhat of a drive to other areas on the island but still worth it when you see the views you encounter which are spectacular.... More

I am sitting here after my 7th day here in paradise, looking back on what I have seen. This place is truly amazing! It has the most pristine beach I have seen anywhere on earth! The distance from the touristy side of the Island is very welcome! This is the place to go when you want to get away from... More

We just returned from a 7 night stay here. I was a little concerned that we would feel deprived by the distance away from "everything". We were far away from gift shops and crowds and traffic and expensive restaurants, it's true---but we were close to nesting shorebirds, breaking waves all night, the Milky Way, Mars and Jupiter lighting up the...

With the other resorts on island having better offers the price isn't that great. Your at the farthest point from anywhere on the island. The amount of rules is incredible. And you have to clean the cottage before you leave. Do not go!!!!!!!!

My husband and I were pleasantly surprised with how quaint the cottage was. Not to mention the location was fantastic, directly across the street from the beach. We stayed in a two bedroom cottage, and came equipped with every kitchen amenity you could think of. Naturally, we spent most of our time outside and enjoyed the comfort of the lanai... More

While I have not stayed here, I have been to the PMRF Facility. The cottages are located on the base in an area on the beach. Wake up and sleep to the soothing sounds of the ocean. Very clean, not as modern as most. Be prepared to shop off base though. Very limited base facilities for shopping.

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
