    Where do we stay while waiting on housing in HI?

    Advertisements
    My DH just got our orders to go to HI and I told him to apply for housing today but we all know that it may take months to get a house. Should we go ahead and make arrangements to stay at a hotel for when we get there? I'm sorry, I'm completely clueless since this is our first PDS. Also, does anyone have any suggestions on places in HI? Thanks!

    If you are getting stationed at K-Bay you have to try to make reservations with the Lodge first. If they are full then they will give you a list of TLA approved hotels around the island. We are staying in the Lodge right now and I love it. It is so close to everything!!

    Definitely make reservations at the lodge as soon as it's possible...

    I can't remember if the 60 days prior arrival applies to PCS orders or if you're able to make reservations further out...

    We stayed at the lodge on base (K-bay). But if they are full, your next step would be the Hale Koa hotel in Waikiki. It's a military hotel. If you go to http://www.mcbh.usmc.mil/ for (k-bay) or http://greatlifehawaii.com/ (Pearl Harbor), these sites will give you all the info you need.

    Thanks! Will the orders say whether we are supposed to be on K-bay or not?
