We really enjoyed staying here! The cottages are small and it's not in a very good neighborhood... but the beach is fabulous! Each evening we sat out on the deck and enjoyed the breeze and sounds of waves. Our only time in the cottage was to sleep & change clothes! Loved it!

I will keep this short and sweet: Pros- Gated facility with 24-7 MP patrol to keep your stuff safe. Nicely stocked shopette full of items for your stay. Rank dependent but where else would I find a 2 bedroom bungalow on the beach to grill out and watch the sunset everynight for $100??? Aka great price Good restaurant with bands... More

Just read the review that rated parc as 2 stars. I am really sorry for his experience as ours could not be more different. We had a single cottage (3) and had views of the sunset off the front porch. Beautiful! The rooms appeared to have been recently repainted, floors were ceramic tile and rooms were very clean, fridge was... More

Well, as an Army Retiree, I was very disappointed in the conditions of the cabins. You can tell that they have not been taken care of properly for quite some time. I reserved 4, two bedroom cabins for 15 of us 10 months prior to our arrival. I asked for all 4 cabins to be together. When we checked in,... More

Although the traffic from the airport to here was heavy and the we wondered at times if we were in the right area once we passed the gate guard and got to our beach side cottage we were well pleased. We were about 30 yards off the beach where others were surfing and paddle boarding and we got so see... More

Excellent stay on the beach. Cabin was very clean and entire staff was wonderful. Sunset Cafe was closed for renovation, but there are many other places to eat if you don't want to barbecue. Very good selection of beach rental equipment, but you'll have to bring your own beach umbrella, or buy a cheap one like we did, same for... More

I had difficulty finding availability when I was planning my trip to Hawaii, therefore, I reserved a room at the Navy Lodge on Ford Island and a room at PARC. If there wasn't a 30 day cancellation policy, I would have canceled and just stayed on Ford Island since there was availability for my entire stay there after I arrived.... More

Room was convenient. Had a tv, 1 bath and 2 bedrooms. We BBQ, brought our own food to cook in full kitchen. We ate at near by restaurant called "Coquito's", it is the closest thing we had to puerto rican food on the island. The food was very good.

Three old friends met for a week in Hawaii in November, and this was a perfect place to stay. Not posh by any means, pretty basic accommodation but for the price it was absolutely great. The restaurant onsite was convenient and served okay food at reasonable prices, considering the million dollar view from the deck seating. We were there during... More

Stayed here to sponsor a teen sleepover birthday party. Waianae House has plenty of room, two bedrooms, two bath, full kitchen, formal dining & living room. Living room also has two pull-out sofa beds but very lumpy, all you feel is spring. Love the washer-dryer in the unit, if nothing else than to dry beach towels. Nice backyard, very private... More
