The beach cottages are roomy, clean, and the older ones have updated appliances. We just came back from Kauai, and could not have had a better time. The waves crashing on the shore, the moon glow over the water...just perfect. We checked in right at 2:00 p.m. which is earlier than most hotels let you in. We shopped the NEX for whatever we thought we'd need, and went to our little piece of paradise. Yes, it is strict, but I love the security of being on base where the USN Police were always evident, especially driving the beach after 10:00 p.m. to make sure there were no trespassers. Barking Sands afforded great access to Wiamea Canyon, so we were up there right after breakfast at the galley (Where else can you get a full breakfast for $2.50, prepared to order, prepared by the Navy?). We did not find the "distance" from the base to anywhere else an issue. I did not mind stripping the beds the morning we left, or cleaning for the next occupant. We found the folks at ITT very helpful, and no question went unanswered. We rented "Tommy Bahama" beach chairs for $1.00/day...where else can you do that???? If you are military, this little gem is the perfect answer for a getaway. We are already planning a return visit.
