Off-Base Homes and Services
The Housing Welcome Center offers a variety of services to assist newly arriving personnel who will live in the local community.
We maintain an extensive database of single houses, apartments and duplexes available in the surrounding communities. These homes are inspected to ensure they meet safety, security and habitability standards.
House hunting service
Community housing counselors will make appointments with newly arriving personnel to show you homes you have chosen to see and to meet the owners. Counselors are bilingual and provide translation. Two house hunting trips are held each workday as well as Saturday morning.
The Loaner Furnishings Program provides furniture for temporary use (up to 90 days) while personnel are waiting for household goods shipments. Items available include sofas, dining tables and chairs, lamps, beds and more. These are available for residents of both family and community housing. Unaccompanied personnel in ranks E6 and below may also borrow this furniture for your tour if you have no household goods shipment.
The Partial Full Tour Furnishings Program provides items that can be borrowed for the duration of your tour. Items include washers, dryers, refrigerators, ranges, kitchen cabinets and wardrobes.
The Self Help Store, located in the Las Palmeras housing area, is used primarily by families living on base. On-base residents can borrow items such as lawn and gardening equipment and tools and can also get items such as flowers, light bulbs and filters. Personnel living off base can borrow transformers, smoke and carbon monoxide detectors and fire extinguishers.
For those with homes leased in the community, the community counselors are available for assistance during your entire tour. They can assist in dealing with landlords/ladies, referrals to local trades people and interpreting/explaining utility bills.
As of Jan. 1 2011, all incoming officer and enlisted personnel on accompanied tours have the option to reside on-base in family housing or to secure a private lease on the economy. If personnel desire to reside in family housing but quarters are not available for your rank and family composition upon arrival, personnel will be placed on a waiting list and be provided a government-funded move from their off-base residence to family housing when a unit becomes available.
On-base family housing units are currently undergoing a multiyear renovation project pending completion. As a result of this renovation, on-base family housing may not be available for all incoming personnel. Personnel are encouraged to contact housing, before you arrive, to check on the current availability of family housing. Contacting us before you arrive is a good way to get information on off-base housing. Another helpful website the Navy Housing One Stop.
Military personnel on unaccompanied orders in ranks E4 and below are required to live in the bachelor housing upon arrival to Rota. If bachelor housing is not available, E4 and below personnel will be authorized to obtain an off-base lease. Prior to obtaining an off-base lease, E4 and below personnel are required to complete a financial planning worksheet with their command financial specialist and provide a Page 13 to the Housing Office to verify financial counseling has been completed. If bachelor housing becomes available, E4 and below personnel residing in an off-base lease may be required to relocate to bachelor housing. This move would be a government-funded move.

An on-base family housing application may be submitted at the Housing Service Center or before arrival using the Housing Early Application Tool application, which can be found at http://www.cnic.navy.mil/HEAT. HEAT allows the HSC to place the service member on the waiting list. HEAT does not give priority on the waiting list. If an application is submitted within 30 days of arriving, the member's effective date on the waiting list is the date of detachment from the last permanent duty station. Applicants need to be confirmed upon arrival. Applications are available at the HSC and must be submitted with a copy of the PCS orders, detaching endorsement and a copy of the record of emergency data (Page 2) and command sponsorship (Page 13).

On-base homes are limited due to several renovation projects. The Las Palmeras site contains 373 two, three and four-bedroom homes for officers and enlisted personnel. The houses are single story Spanish-style duplex homes (connected at the carports) and single-story detached homes. All the homes have undergone several renovation and improvement projects since being built in the early 1960s. All on-base homes have central heat and air conditioning, range, refrigerator, dishwasher, washer and dryer and fenced yards. The electrical system aboard the Naval Station Rota, including on-base housing, is 110-volts/60 cycle. Telephone and internet service is available. While the homes do provide some storage, it is limited. Additionally, there are no facilities aboard the Naval Station Rota for storing excess furnishings.
