Honeymooners and surfers of any age love this spot! Your secluded hide-away in nature with access through private 'tree tunnel' adjacent to 26 acre pasture - home to neighbors' horses.

Unique rustic redwood cabin (with hotplate, microwave, toaster oven, fridge etc) in the treetops, just ten minutes from sunny Poipu (voted best beach in the United States), and twenty minutes to the sunny west side with its beautiful beaches.

About The Owner

Neil was born in Wales and has lived on Kauai since 1980. He designed and built Kauaitreehouses in various stages beginning in the early 90's. Neil met Sharon, who was born in South Africa in December 2003. Now married - they relish the opportunity to share this unique slice of the beautiful island of Kauai - a place which is such an incredible delight and privilege to call home.

The Owner purchased this cabin in 1990

Why The Owner chose Kalaheo

Neil bought the land because he loved it. While it has a rural feel, is beautiful, and is quiet (off a cul de sac), it is very central and 'civilization' is but a few minutes drive. Also, being in the hills it is lush and cooler,...the latter in summer...is an absolute blessing!

What makes this cabin unique

Ability to enjoy an 'authentic' Kauaian experience. Owner built and he lives on the property and will gladly talk story and share his ideas on must sees and do's. Surrounded by trees and abundant bird life...and yet within ten minutes you can be on the popular beaches of sunny Poipu.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This was the best vacation and staying here was an absolute joy! Neil told great stories and shared many things about the local scene that helped us a great deal. Wish we could have visited with Sharon. We will be back! Aloha! All our best

Loved it. Then hated it.

  • out of 5
I hesitated writing this review because my BF and I are torn about the place. I've decided to write it because I wish I had been provided this info when deciding where to stay. We recently stayed at the treehouse during our week long vacation. We arrived and immediately felt at home in the cute little cabin in the trees. We found it easily with the instructions we were given. In fact, the first few days were pretty good. Loved the outdoor shower, the hammock... The privacy. We used the boogie boards, chairs and cooler at the various beaches - so that was really nice. We had no power for a day, listened to some nearby construction occasionally and were woken up by the roosters crowing early each morning - none of this was a big deal. However.... Things changed for the worse around day 4. That was when the bugs seemed to really come out and I'm not sure why - we kept the place tidy, had limited food in the house and cleaned every morning. I understand that the place is meant to be rustic and that there are lots of bugs in Hawaii. I get that. However, when they interfere with ones health and sanity, there's a problem. We were eaten by insects at night by tiny aphid-like bugs because they were able to get through the screens on the windows. We'd wake up covered in welts from the bug bites. The mosquitos and giant spiders in the house weren't a huge deal either. However, laying down in bed and spotting a cockroach in the bedding I pulled the comforter over me was absolutely terrifying. This was the breaking point for me. Unfortunately, this wasn't the only run- in with cockroaches during our stay. In retrospect I wish we had booked elsewhere. I'm disappointed our trip was spoiled by this experience - we will be definitely staying elsewhere upon our return to Kauai. If you decide to stay here we recommend you bring a tent to set up inside so at least you can get a good night's sleep.

We felt extremely welcomed!

  • 5 out of 5
From the moment we arrived, we were greeted by the owner and shown all the amenities. He and his wife are extremely friendly and likable people! They have thought through everything, down to the small details.
It has a very welcoming and cozy feeling. The outdoor shower is very romantic and always warm. The bedding was clean and we had all our essential towels. The kitchenette is perfect for a short stay.
It was a little more like "camping" than I had expected (ie. a few bugs and mosquitoes here and there) but he provided bug spray and candles to counter those minor annoyances.
Overall, the experience was incredible! I would return in a heartbeat. We went for the second week of our honeymoon and there was an obvious difference from our stay in the resort for the first week. It was extremely peaceful and relaxing.
All I can say is, "thank you for your hospitality!"

Owner's Response: One of the joys of living on a beautiful island up here in the trees is being able to meet wonderful young people embarking on a new chapter of married life - you were a particularly special couple and we wish you much happiness and many enriching and memorable times together! Thank you for staying with us - you are so very welcome back at any time, and perhaps next time you'll try our oceanview unit over on Puu Road

Wonderful owners

  • 5 out of 5
The owners are terrific people who really want their guests to have a wonderful visit. I came up against a last minute paperwork complication getting a car and only discovered the problem the day before our flight. Neil found out and called me in the middle of the night to say that he was picking us up at the airport. He helped me find a vehicle and saved us a couple hundred dollars we would have lost on the activities we had scheduled (No four star Hotel concierge ever went to those lengths to help us out of a bind.) They checked in with us occasionally to make sure we had what we needed, and Sharon was great with little maps to help us find the specialty food store for my 16 year old son. Staying in this rustic and charming tree house was a dream come true for my son, and yes...the outdoor shower is steamy and wonderful! Spent two full weeks at this location and will do so again if we visit Kauai. We found the location to be ideal because it is higher in elevation and therefore cooler during the day when we needed a brief respite from our adventures. We visited so many beaches, and per Niel's recommendation took a trip up to Anini beach on our last day for snorkeling (June 16). BEST we had seen within a protected reef and while surface snorkeling only. Thank you helping us get the ball rolling on our fantastic vacation full of adventures! We will never forget you.Y&A

Beautiful treehouse

  • 5 out of 5
We had an amazing honeymoon stay in the treehouse. It's very cozy and stocked with anything you need. The outdoor shower is unique and refreshing on a hot Kauai day. We spent a lot of time out on the lanai playing cards and relaxing. Neil was very helpful and kind.

Best Place to Stay on Kauai!

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed at the Kauai Tree house for our honeymoon and it was absolutely perfect! It looks just like the pictures and had everything as described. Talk with Neil if you can, he is full of knowledge; we wish we would have had more time to talk with him. Rent a convertible, this is the BEST way to see the island, its SOOOOOO beautiful. We highly recommend Na Pali zodiac raft tours with Joe, Ziplinging, Poi’Pu Beach and make sure you get a Puka Dog! YUMMY

Thank You Sharon and Neil for the fabulous stay!
We will for sure be back again!

What an absolute Jem of a place!

  • 5 out of 5
This past January found us staying at this quaint little place for 3 nights, and boy do we wish we stayed longer! The house is warm and inviting and has a fabulous outdoor shower that was just the ticket to the Aloha Experience. (Seriously- being outside with a hot shower and stargazing is something nobody should miss out on!) The place is completely stocked for staying there; it has a full size fridge (which is nice) with plenty of cooking supplies to shower towels. Even the furniture was lovely, gave it that nice hawaiian island feeling. Crickets gently put you to sleep at night and waking up to birds singing away in the treetops… What a great little spot this place is! Neil is more than ready to help out with any questions/concerns you have (we had none, this place was easy!) He also is a great resource for local insider knowledge- make sure to ask his opinion on activities you are doing, he makes great suggestions. Great little coffee and breakfast place 5 minutes down the road, make sure to check it out. Overall it was an incredible experience staying there from the place to the people and if he hadn’t been booked we would have stayed longer (which is our biggest regret, make sure to book early!) When I come back there is no question about where I’m staying at! Thanks Neil and Sharon for sharing such a great place to all!
