Cottage, Studio,1 Bath
About Andrea Young
Great love of the natural beauty and the amazing outdoor lifestyles of Maui brought me here year after year until I decided to purchase this amazing property in one of Maui's best locations.
Andrea Young purchased this Cottage in 2011
Why Andrea Young chose Paia
We are tucked away off the Hana highway in a great residential neighborhood conveniently located between Kahului and Paia. Although we are technically in Paia the locals consider this area Sprecks or Spreckelsvile. The property is very tropical and spacious. Our neighbors across the street are ocean front but public access is a short drive or a 15 minute walk. If you have never kited Maui you have no idea of how spoiled you can be. Warm water, constant trade winds, and at times, world class waves is what this place offers.
What makes this Cottage unique
Quiet location (except for the airplanes from the nearby airport). Easy access to kite beach as you do not need to drive through Paia to get to the house. Property is very tropical with an 80 foot Banyan tree, a large mango tree and other lush greenery surrounding the property. Easy parking as it is a street with very few homes. Great neighborhood for taking walks and the beach is in reasonable walking distance. Public access to beach is a 15 minute walk.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Very beautiful clean property near beach
Fruit trees, shaded patio, comfortable place near beach. Patio even has a surfboard rack. What more do you need?
This is our second time staying at the Sprecks Plantation House and we will definitely be back. We have stayed in both the Plumeria and Mango units. The units are beautifully decorated and have everything you need including very comfortable beds. The kitchens are well appointed and provide all the pots/pans and utensils you need to cook in (including a gas BBQ). The whole complex is meticulously cared for..inside and out.
We had the misfortune of getting a flat tire while we were here. Glen, the owner, happened to be on the property and just jumped in and changed our tire without being asked. What a great guy!
A few bonuses: laundry; miscellaneous beach items for your use (umbrellas; chairs; toys; snorkelling gear); bicycles (it is a very short ride to Baby Beach through the neighbourhood or Kanaha Beach along a bike path)
Some people worry about airplane noise when considering Specklesville. We are light sleepers and sleep with the doors and windows open. Yes, you hear the airplanes...but we did not find them that disruptive. The minor inconvenience of hearing the occasional airplane is far outweighed by the rest of the experience. (Note - you can cut down on the noise if you open only the south facing doors and windows)
Great location for kiteboarding. Few minutes drive to Kite beach. Specks plantation was very clean and quite neighborhood. I would come back and recommend to friends and family.
We are one house back from the ocean. Although you can hear the ocean where there is a swell running the oceanfront lots do not allow access and the closest beach is Sugar Cove or Baby Baldwin.
