Beautiful Spreckeslville Home
It has been a busy month of new listings for the Maui Real Estate Team. We just brought another home to market in Spreckelsville on Maui’s North Shore. This luxury home features 3 beds, 3.5 baths and 2,680 square feet of living space. There is also a detached two car garage with a storage and office area.
The home in the Sprecks V subdivision is chock full of amenities. Here are a few features that stand out:
- Ten foot ceilings
- Gourmet kitchen with black granite counters, custom cherry cabinets and top of the line appliances
- Imperial plaster walls
- Stained concrete and bamboo flooring
- Panoramic Haleakala Views from the second story
The home builder utilized a number of energy conservation features. The home was constructed with insulated concrete forms. Combined with energy conserving windows, the home stays cooler on warm days. On demand hot water also helps to keep down utility costs.
The location of his home is arguably its greatest amenity. 10 Ulupua is close to Maui Country Club, Baby Beach and Sugar Cove. That translates to convenient access to surfing, kitesurfing, windsurfing, SUPing, tennis, golf, running, beach walks or relaxation. It is hard to find a better location on Maui for an active outdoor lifestyle. The convenience extends beyond outdoor time. The property is less than 10 minutes to the airport and other Central Maui amenities. The shops, restaurants and yoga studios of Paia are a short bike ride from the home’s front door.
This Spreckelsville Luxury Home is offered for $1,742,000. Check out the 10 Ulupua Listing Page for additional photos and details on the property. Contact The Maui Real Estate Team to discuss the property or to arrange a showing. You can search the current inventory of Spreckeslville Real Estate Listings on MauiRealEstate.com.

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.
This Spreckelsville Beach House is being offered for $3,900,000. Check out the 204 Kealakai Place listing page for more photos and details. Contact the Maui Real Estate Team to arrange a showing. The opportunity for good times and great memories is yours.

Spreckelsville Maui Real Estate Update
With the year coming to an end, we wanted to start taking a look at different communities around the island and how they performed in 2012. The first market we wanted to tackle is the North Shore community of Spreckelsville. Spreckelsville has a Paia mailing address, but it is a neighborhood unto itself. The community consists of higher end properties ranging from executive homes along the Maui Country Club golf course to multi-million dollar oceanfront estates. “Sprecks” is also home to Sugar Cove, the only beachfront condominium complex on the North Shore. Sprecks is a popular community both for kama’aina and second home owners. Owners in the area are drawn to the central location, beaches, access to Paia, proximity to the country club and the water sports accessible just offshore. Windsurfing, kitesurfing, surfing, SUP, body boarding and just plain beach walking are all available at the beaches and offshore reefs of Spreckelsville. The map below shows the location of the 2012 Spreckelsville real estate sales marked by blue pins and the current active real estate listings marked by green.
