Although we loved having the beach inches away, the cabins were so dated and run down it was really disappointing. Also, although there are quiet hours, they were not at all enforced leaving us with little sleep as others partied around us. Customer service at the reservations counter was awful but the staff at Turtle Cove was awesome. The beach... More

We stayed from Monday thru Friday because we could not get reservations on the weekend at short notice. Less than $100 a night for a two bedroom Cabin that slept six people. The beach was unbelievable and one morning we had the beach all to ourselves as far as the eye could see! On Oahu this is something that is... More

We've been staying at Bellows AFB for over 20 years, about twice a year. We've stayed in the old cabins (when we were young, fortunately), the new big cabins right inside the gate (spacious, clean, but hard to reserve), the renovated cabins (clean, functionable, lots of sand outside your door to track inside to your sheets, and finally, the CONDO's....

At about $100 a night for a two bedroom, one bath cabin literally steps from the best beach on the island, this is the best deal going for active duty or retired military. Better yet, if you have friends who are active duty or retired... have 'em take you along! The cabins are not five star hotel, but they are... More

Absolutely beautiful location. This is my 4th visit with many more to come. The cabins are old but in great ship with new furnishings and appliances. The only problem is the critters - ants, cockroaches and large centipedes. They supposedly cannot spray for environmental reasons but....The ants are easy to take care of with Taro traps available at many stores.... More

2 adults/3 kids stayed for 10 days in the ground level condo. Check in was easy and staff pleasant. The rooms are a good size. Hot water is kinda a pain but for the price and location I could deal with it. Saw a couple ants but not a huge deal. My only complaint was with housekeeping. I'm not sure... More

My family rented a beach front cottage at Bellows for March 21-27, 2015. It was two bedrooms with a pull out couch and one bathroom. It easily accomodated our family of 5. The cottage was clean and in good working order. The cottage was 100 feet from the beach. Bellows is very rural and relaxing. The beach is clean and... More

You have to have a military ID to stay and get on Bellows, but the cottages are just average.there are rustics and ones that are deemed updated. The beach is one of the best beaches on Oahu with sandy bottom and no rocks. It's very quiet during the week. The updated cottages are ok but you must keep everything put... More
