Thanks for reading and please share your experiences with me on my FB group, HAWAII MILITARY LIFE, so we can help others. I mainly post Local Hawaii events and information in that group. And if you are retiring or transitioning, please join our HAWAII MILITARY RETIRED VETERANS LIFE Facebook group.
HAWAII MILITARY LIFE is a NEW 2017 group. We try to look for a lot of FREE events or discounts for Military. We also post PCS instructions, shipping a car dealing with pets, BAH, and anything related to Military commands in Hawaii. This group is NOT FOR PROFIT so we are REAL DoD families helping each other. You can search through our Facebook site using key words on the left column. https://www.facebook.com/groups/1483172141727626/
Welcome to Schofield Video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D6AmELwm4_A
Here are the list of Army units stationed at Schofield. https://www.dodhousingnetwork.com/army/schofield-barracks/units
Both Wheeler and Schofield use the same housing office on Schofield Barracks base,
215 Duck Road, off of the Lyman gate entrance.
Schofield Barracks Housing Service Office (HSO): US Army Garrison Hawaii (USAG-Hawaii) is the Department of Defense executive agent for off-base housing on Oahu, and is located at Building 950, 215 Duck Road, Schofield Barracks, Wahiawa, HI. This office is responsible for providing assistance to joint forces stationed at Schofield; Marines, Army, Navy, and Air Force families in locating suitable off-base housing in the local community for lease/rent.
ISLAND PALM COMMUNITIES
The housing community is called "Island Palm Communities". And is located mainly in the back of the Schofield base. Mostly enlisted housing is available, which is more than half of all housing on Post.
You can also go to the site to see the rental rates of the units at Island Palm Communities. http://www.islandpalmcommunities.com/schofield-barracks/island-palm-communities/
To cost of the units in comparison to living off post in terms of quality (wood floors, yard, etc) and price per square foot is pretty reasonable. A spouse I interview said it has a "beautiful interior" and a great support group of families since the community is so large. From research off post a 3bd, 2 bath home at 1400 sq ft ran around $2800 which on post you can get up to 1900 sq ft same price.
They said you can expect to wait up to 2-4 weeks before you get a place, however recommended you call a month ahead of your arrival to get on the wait list to see if you can be placed when you arrive. Leasing office number is (844) 874-6019. M-F. Remember Hawaii Standard Time (HST) difference.
At post housing Schofield you are allowed 2 pets. Except for pit bulls, pit bull mixes, Doberman pinschers, Rottweilers, wolf breed combination?, chows, etc. I guess they exclude these breeds without even testing behaviors. There are perfectly good breeds out there that are loving dogs.
