About Pamela Neff

Juan and I moved from Alaska to Maui in 1987. Well fell in love with this neighborhood, and bought our ranch-style home in 1994. Our dream was to build a vacation rental cottage on the top to help us with our retirement plan. We did not realize how much fun we would have meeting people from all around the world who love Maui and the cottage as much as we do.

Pamela Neff purchased this cottage in 1994

Why Pamela Neff chose Kihei

If you like to wake up to the birds singing, and enjoy the sunrise over the mountain....if you like a quiet, private setting, the Kihei Treehouse Cottage is for you. If you like the convenience of shopping, restaurants, beach, fresh fruit and vegetable stand, and gourmet shops within walking distance, you have found the right place.

What makes this cottage unique

We are fully equipped with everything we can think of that will make your stay memorable and enjoyable. From the luxurious sheets, to the sharp knives, the cottage is not just equipped. It is equipped with top of the line amenities.

Mahalo to Pamela andJuan for making us feel the aloha spirit in their "treehouse" . The views were splendid and the location was perfect for exploring the far reaches of the island. Thank you to Juan for naming all of the trees in the yard ! we hope to make it back yearly. Mahalo

Quiet retreat

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the Kihei treehouse. It was clean, the bathroom and kitchen were well stocked, and the king-size bed was very comfortable. There’s large windows that allow for lovely breezes and hearing the birds in the mornings. The house is on a corner lot, but the neighborhood is quiet. It’s about a 10 minute walk to the water to watch the sunset and there’s a nice paved path by the water for strolls. It’s also close to many restaurants, shopping, etc.

Private, quiet and well stocked "Treehouse"

  • 5 of 5

The "Treehouse" is located in a residential area so it is away from the noise associated with tourist spots. Still within walking distance of downtown Kihei which has outstanding beaches, shopping and dining.

The owners, Juan and Pam, are hospitable and very nice. They live below the "Treehouse" but we never heard them.

The "Treehouse" is beautiful inside as shown in the photos. Immaculate. Great views from the windows of the trees. Spacious lanai which we used in the mornings.

This was the best stocked rental we've stayed in. There was a generous supply of basic food items such as coffee, spices, condiments, salad dressings and frozen lemon juice to make lemonade. Additionally, the owners provided an abundance of essentials such as laundry detergent, dishwasher soap, plastic storage bags, plastic wrap, aluminum foil and so on. This seems like a minor point until you run out of something and find out how expensive these basics are in Maui.

My husband and I stayed here 8 nights. It was a great base to visit all the spots in Maui..

Excellent Kihei Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5

Mahalo for Kihei Treehouse Cottage, the perfect base for our Maui adventures. This was our fifth time taking a vacation rental here and it was hands down the quietest neighborhood we have experienced in Kihei. It is conveniently located to the many good restaurants in Kihei and Wailea, our favorite beaches in Wailea and Makena, and the fine Kihei Aquatic Center (for lap swimmers like myself). All of Maui's attractions, including Maui Ocean Center, Lahaina, and Upcountry/Kula are just a brief drive away.

The cottage itself is well appointed and maintained, and equipped with everything needed both domestically (even dishwasher and icemaker!) and recreationally - beach chairs, umbrella, boogie boards and bikes. We particularly enjoyed the morning birdsong and sunsets from the private lanai.

Pam and Juan are gracious hosts, and we would not hesitate recommending the Treehouse or returning ourselves.

Maui at it best

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at the lovely treehouse for 11 days. What more can we say than others have already said. It's in a great location in Maui, very close to the best beaches and restaurants. Near a highway so other parts of island are easily accessible too. Suite had everything we needed, full size kitchen, very comfortable bed and private. Pam was a very accommodating host. We loved it and would stay here again. Aloha!
