Classic Kama’aina Beach House in Old Spreckelsville
Beach house. These are two words in the English language that are bound to evoke a flood of positive memories. Thoughts of times spent with friends and family playing in the sand, sun and salt water flood through the mind. Nights spent on the porch listening to the palm fronds swaying in the breeze and surf crashing in the distance. This Spreckelsville home offers an opportunity to create a whole new series of memories with friends and family. Located within a two minute walk of Baby Beach, this Kama’aina Style Hawaiian Beach House offers boatloads of charm, great indoor and outdoor living spaces, a sterling location and a relaxed lifestyle.
The home itself has three bedrooms and two bathrooms. Built in 1957, it retains the charm of the old Kama’aina style. Big windows in the living room provide views of the lushly landscaped back yards. A front porch provides glimpses of the ocean and a nice place for breakfast, coffee or a quiet read. Recent updates have added modern conveniences. Efficient and quiet split system a/c systems keep things cool on the hottest days. The sellers created two indoor/outdoor bathrooms with showers and tubs outside. An impressive walk in dressing area with built in vanities and dressers were added to the master suite. The kitchen has new appliances and an island was added for additional preparation space. A brick lanai covered by a trellis is a great space to enjoy the back yard and listen to the breeze and the surf.
The closest beach is literally a couple hundred yards from the front door. Baby Beach is one of the most family friendly spots on the North Shore of Maui. A reef just offshore of the sand provides a sheltered swimming area on all but the biggest of surf days. Baby beach turns to Baldwin Beach. Baldwin is the best walking beach on this side of the island. There is also a good spot for kite boarding right where Baby Beach and Baldwin meet. Additionally, there are a number of wave riding spots in the neighborhood for all manner of wave craft. Whether you want your time in the sand and surf to be blissful relaxation or an adrenaline rush, you have options just a few minutes walk from home.
Access to the beach isn’t your only convenience. The home is also a five minute walk to the Maui Country club. Downtown Paia and its assorted shops, restaurants and yoga studios are just a few minutes drive. Movie theaters, big box stores, the Maui Arts and Cultural Center and other Central Maui amenities are ten minutes away in the other direction. A number of the island’s best schools are within twenty minutes drive of the house.
