"Our family recently stayed at this cliffside house in July. The location is less than five minutes from the Lihue airport but we never experienced air traffic noise. We walked to the elevator which is about 500 ft from the house and which takes you directly to the Marriott Beach Resort grounds. The beach here is one which is protected from the open ocean and which our boys (7,9, 9)loved playing in. Kayak rentals and even surf lessons can be set up from the beachside shop here. The home even has some boogie boards which they utilized extensively. Im not sure if its the time of year, but this was not a crystal clear beach but the sands were perfect, the pool service from the Beach Resort was prompt and the food and drinks were great. We even utilized the small cooler in the garage to bring our own drinks and snacks to the beach. All beaches are public including this one so many folks bring their own things.
This is a three level home with the main floor consisting of an open, one-level kitchen with a comfortable living room overlooking Kalapaki beach. This is an air conditioned home. Due to high electrical costs in Hawaii the owner does make a point to ask that utilization be reduced when the home is not occupied. I appreciate prevailing winds but I don't like to be hot, especially on vacation. This was a nice plus as many rentals are not air conditioned. The home was immaculately clean upon our arrival. Our three boys and niece had ample room to relax. The kitchen is well appointed with a large stainless steel refrigerator which we stocked with groceries from Costco which is less than 10 minutes away (has all the same things our Costco had plus a few regional foods). We only used the entertainment system in the living room which is equipped with a nice variety of electronic equipment including a Roku. The bedrooms are huge and each comes with their own full size balcony. You can host a dinner party in each of the master bathrooms.
Other perks are the full sized washer and dryer and the outdoor shower.
Improvements that can be made include placing a regular bed in the loft bedroom off the main floor. This currently has pull out couch which was left in bed mode the entire time and which has little use as a couch.
We will plan on returning to this home which has a great location, incredible views and offers modern, clean luxury in a 2800 sq three level layout with AC!"

"My boyfriend and I enjoyed our stay here very much. We weren't there during the day most of time, so we had no need to turn on the air conditioner, but keep the windows open at night and the temperature was perfect. In the morning the awning on the lanai was great when the sun was coming up. The cottage was very clean and comfortable, and had everything we needed and more. For the price it was perfect!"

"After my inquiry, Ron called and assured me that we (2 50+ and 2 teens) would absolutely be thrilled with Pukalani. He was right! As others have stated: the unit is top notch, everything needed is there, views across the golf course to the water below are fantastic (not many golfers hit the green, btw), the pool is appropriately sized and very nice, the grounds are immaculate, the fitness center is adjacent and well-equipped, and it is quiet. We explored the whole island and this was a central location to begin our treks. Good food is around the corner (Duke's, others). For a more-than-satisfying breakfast, try the Loco Moco's at the Feral Pig. The south shore (Poipu) has interesting shops and the Beach House was a superb place to celebrate the spouse's 50th. Rafting the Na Pali coast was an adventurous outing that saw great topography, waterfalls, sea caves and spinner dolphins. Best of all was coming back to a great home base that met our expectations-----and then some. Thanks for sharing Pukalani Ron!"

"My husband and I stayed at the Lincoln's villa in Kauai for our honeymoon. We were thrilled to find it on VRBO, but we were in awe when we actually stepped foot in the rental. It was stunning! Much nicer than many hotels we've stayed in plus the added bonus of laundry and kitchenette! It's the perfect location, you have a beach, restaurants and activities all within walking distance and it's a great central starting point if you're going to go explore the rest of the island. The view from the villa of Kalapaki beach is beautiful; we loved watching the early morning surfers and listening to the sounds of the waves at night. The Lincoln's were extremely accomodating! With the amenities they provided we were able to snorkel, boogie board, and spend hours on the beach using the towels and beach chairs they have for their guests. We didn't want to leave! I would absolutely recommend this rental! And we definitely plan on visiting again!"
