Family of four stayed in studio but needed rollaway bed for extra $15 a night since room only comes with a full size bed. There was baked on food debris left on a pot and baking pan. Two other small chairs and a table with two small chairs that is very inconvenient to the kitchen. Loud music could be heard...

Nice and quiet place to get away from the crowd in Honolulu. Nice size flat screen TV, refrigerator, stove, oven, microwave inside. They should have queen of king size beds though. Nice patio deck to watch the beach and maybe 40 feet from the beach. Get to watch the dolphins in the bay almost every morning and you can get...

Not luxury but good value. Have all the water toys you want to rent at great prices, especially compared to other Hawaii venues. We had a studio which seemed very secure after seeing others comments about theft. Airconditioned with full kitchen, might want to stop at Pearl commissary on the way out. They have a small shoppette on site. Beach...

We had stayed at this nice beach and in the cabins some years before. They have updated the cabins, but they have very limited furniture. Beds were comfortable, rooms very clean, fully equipped kitchen. Front porch is wonderful to watch sunset. It is very practical for a small family. Downsides: the on base eatery, very casual, open only on Saturday...

If your the type of person that likes to "rough it" out in the great outdoors, than this is probably a little too cushy for you. However, if you're like me and would prefer to "rough it," with the added bonuses of running water, a bed, refrigerator, coffeemaker, cable TV, and A/C...then you will find the cabins at Waianae a...

In the early morning hours of 26 January we had a person break-in through the bathroom window after being lifted up from outside and cutting the screen. This was done while 4 adults and 2 children were sleeping. The intruder grabbed 2 bags and went out the front door. We were one of 3 break-ins in the 3 adjoining cottages...

If you are expecting luxury - then try elsewhere. If looking for accommodations close to the water and away from the hustle and bustle of Waikiki - then make the trip to Waianae. The PARC facility was a great choice for the family and I. Basic room that could have used a deep clean (dirty walls) but otherwise was adequate...

We stayed 3 weeks in cabin 1. What a perfect place to relax, unwind and enjoy a little piece of paradise. The waianae coast is a fantastic place to enjoy the beauty of Hawai'i and experience a more authentic Hawaiian experience. Embrace the Aloha spirit and you will want to live aloha too.

We stayed here a week ago with my parents in cabin 31. The cabin was clean and well stocked with dishes, pots, utensils etc. The sheets were clean, there were plenty of towels. We didn't want housekeeping to come everyday, but they brought clean towels everyday and changed the sheets every third day. If we needed more toilet paper or...

What a nice surprise! We were a little hesitant after driving through Waianae the night we arrived. Not the best neighborhood, but the PARC was fantastic once we were through the gates. We stayed in the Maui section of the camp and loved it. We were just steps away from the sand and the beautiful, calm water. The two bedroom...
