About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Our second home is located 100 feet above the Pacific Ocean, with mountain views across the bay, and two ocean front golf holes of the 18 hole Jack Nicklaus Kiele, now called Hokuala, golf course in front of you. Even the back door has a great view of the 38 acre Kauai Lagoons with manicured grounds and secluded walking trails. Our home is called 'Pukalani' which is Hawaiian for 'Heaven's Door.' The minute you walk through the door, you will see 'Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away'. You will know you are in paradise. Kauai has many fun activities, but you will find it hard to leave the beauty and amenities of Pukalani. Our condo is the perfect place to stay if you are attending a meeting or event at the Marriott Kauai Beach Club. We are just a short walk or shorter drive to the Marriott Hotel. Why stay in a hotel room when you can be staying in a new two bedroom condo with a gourmet kitchen and breath taking views.

This is the only villa at the Marriott Grand Residence at Kauai Lagoons offered for rental. Our rental fee is a great bargain compared to renting a hotel room, so book early to guarantee a reservation and your perfect dream vacation.

Also a free shuttle is available for pick up and return to the Marriott Hotel and the airport.

We are fully comply with Hawaii state law. Hawaii state Tax ID# is 044-262-6048-01, my email address is and contact phone # is 309-826-2311.

We welcome you to our island home. Ron and Alice

About Ron Wesbecher

My wife and I live in the flat area of Central Illinois. We fell in love with Kauai on our first visit in 1976 and have been back many times since then. We purchased this new condo in 2009 as a place to renew our spirit each year, and also to entertain our children and grandchildren. We know Pukalani will do the same for you.

Ron Wesbecher purchased this villa in 2009

Why Ron Wesbecher chose Līhuʻe

For years on our annual vacations to Kauai, we would take walks by this location and stop and marvel at the beauty of the view. Finally after 12 years of waiting, Marriott built this beautiful condo on the location we have loved for so many years. We purchased early and obtained what we feel is the best view.

What makes this villa unique

The condo is close to great shopping, airport, movies, local farmer's markets, yet it feels so remote and peaceful. The full gourmet kitchen makes dining in a pleasure with a spectacular view. We also enjoy walking the beautiful trails along the Lagoons and watching for wildlife and showy tropical flowers. The ocean is located just outside our door. Free parking is behind our building and only a few steps from our second story condo. Steps and an elevator or available for easy access.

You can't beat this Hawaiian view!!!

VRBO Bear stayed here

May 31, 2016

Accurately titled Pualani or “Heaven’s Door” in Hawaiian, we could not have dreamed of a more incredible property for our vacation. We spent 6 beautiful days at Pukalani and did not want to leave. Everything from the breathtaking views to the beautifully decorated condo made this a trip to remember. The condo had everything we needed and more in terms of amenities and looked even better than the photos. We spent most of our time sitting on the balcony admiring the scenery. Afternoons were spent exploring the island, hiking the Na Pali coastline, taking in some sun at the beach, and snorkeling along the coastline in clear blue water. We thoroughly enjoyed each minute we spent here and would often come home early to enjoy time on the balcony and watch the sunset. Ron, the property owner, left a welcome packet at the airport through our car rental company with clear instructions on how to access the property including ideas of what type of activities to book while we were in Kauai and nearby farmer’s markets. Thank you for allowing us the chance to enjoy this piece of paradise!

Beautiful condo in convenient location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great relaxing stay with 2 adult couples and a five year old. The five year old slept on the pull out which worked out fine. We loved eating meals and enjoying the view from the lanai. We also did some of the family activities at the resort and found the staff really friendly and fun. The location is very central to conveniences in Lihue and lots of day trips around the island. Overall great stay!

This was our first time to use VRBO in Kauai and this condo didn't disappoint! This condo was better than described and had everything and anything that we needed. We travel often and are used to staying at 5 star resorts. This one was one of the best. The condo had a ton of room and felt at home with all the great amenities. The information we were given before hand was excellent and very detailed. We will miss the amazing view and breeze on the balcony each day over looking the golf course and ocean. Ron, the owner called while were staying just to check in and make sure everything was ok which was much appreciated. Oh yes, Ron even late us have a late check out which was very cool! What a great 50th birthday surprise! Thanks to Ron and your management company for making our trip perfect.

Great Property!

  • 5 of 5

2nd floor condo unit on the Kalani Pu'u resort complex. It has spectacular views of the 14th hole, Hokuala Golf Course and entrance to Nawiliwili Harbor where cruise ships enter and exit ever day. The unit is beautifully furnished by the owner and includes all the necessities for dining in or on the large deck. There is a very nice kid friendly pool and BBQ area in the complex located 2 buildings from where this unit is located. The closest beach is located on the resort complex at the Kauai Marriott which is accessible by a 5 minute shuttle or car ride. Thank you for allowing us to enjoy your home for a week!

That VRBO Bear knows the best places!

  • 5 of 5

Every detail was thought of to make sure our week was perfect! We loved the view and the ease of getting our luggage upstairs and back downstairs when we left (elevator and luggage carts). The grounds are beautiful, the gym is so close and we ejoyed the walking paths.

This is the second property I've booked where the VRBO bear has stayed, the first was in Boston (247506) and it's fun following that fuzzy guy around. He knows how to pick vacation rentals!

The rental management company and the owners created an easy booking process and have maintained the property to perfection. One thing I appreciated was the short to-do list upon checking out. We weren't required to do towels or bedding before check out as in other vacation rentals and this made our stay like a real vacation.

Not sure if anyone else mentioned this but when the trades blow they hit the front door and make the spookiest noise! There were nights we had to close the bedroom door in order to block out that howling but that was just one little downside to an otherwise perfect week long stay!

What a beautiful condo!
