I have previously reviewed Specks Plantation House, this is an updated review as a new owner has renovated and updated the house.
I have stayed here multiple times now for over 15 years and it is better then ever. For reference, I have also stayed in Kihei and Kaanapali for a good contrast. I prefer this location and area.
New reno's include new granite counter-tops, flooring, paint and appliances, furniture, beds and couches. Wifi is free and patio spaces and barbecues are ample sized. The cutlery was new as was the linens. All the studios are of ample size for a couple, the couch folds out of extra sleeping space for the a child or two perhaps , but 2 couple would be cramped.
I recommend this place for a quiet Maui experience , close to the action BUT away from the resorts and busy beaches.
BUT , while sprecks house is a great find the location is this spots trump card as its on Maui northshore.It is on the gateway to the best sightseeing that Maui has to offer!
Example, going to drive the Hana highway? Well, its a long all day dawn to dusk activity , that you should not rush, and Spreckshouse is right on the Hana highway.
If your staying in Kihei you spend approx 15 minutes just getting to the Spreckshouse area. Makena is 30 minutes away and Kaanapali a full hour!! The same goes for driving up to Haleakala. The start of the drive up to Haleakala is just 3 minutes away. The Iao valley? a right turn out on the Hana highway and straight through Kahului and Wailuku.
Now thats easy! no time wasted.
Looking for some of the best of old Maui? well a good sample of that can be found out your door, a left turn on the Hana highway , one minute up to Paia town. Want more ? A right turn through Paia , brings you to Makawao town, another 10 minutes up the road. Both are Maui must do's as both towns offer shops, art galleries , and highly rated inexpensive restaurants.
Beach time? Its a one minute drive to Baldwin Beach. This is my personal favourite as its uncrowded on a busy day, over a mile long. Lifeguards are on duty at the far east end, ( day hours only) and an unsupervised but safe sheltered pool on the other closest to spreckshouse.
One thing about this beach and any Hawaiian beach , always be careful it can get rough, but its beauty is that it is as elemental and wild as a Maui beach gets!
Kiter, windsurfer or surfer? Hey.....you are on the northshore!
The one downside and a warning is that there is airport noise from Kahului airport, this can go into the early evening, with the occasional plane later at night , but we got used to it. There is no traffic noise or street noise to speak of.

My summary , like crowds? Lots of noise, BEWARE dont go to Sprecks Plantation House! Like a gateway to adventure living in a local quiet Maui neighborhood at an affordable price ?

This is the spot.

The truth is if you have never been here before, you will fall in love with Maui. You will see more of what others do not see in the crowded touristy big resorts. Some of those people never leave those resorts...pity...they ever really see Maui.

The bottom line is this for a given length of stay , you will save money and as such you will be back.....much sooner.

Room Tip: Having stayed in all the suites , we liked the mango studio space the best, with a Lanai ( patio) on both sides of the studio.

My girlfriend and I just stayed at the Sprecks Plantation House for two weeks. It was in a great location if you are a kitesurfer, as you could bike to Kite Beach or a short drive into the town of Paia. The place was new, nice, and modern, but also had tons of "Hawaii Character." I would highly recommend this spot if you are looking to stay in the Paia area on Maui.

We will be back!

I was in Maui for almsot 3 weeks for work and Sprecks Plantation was perfect. It is so close to Paia and Kahului. The Hibiscus Suite was clean, perfectly furnished and all newly renovated. The wak to Baby Beach and Sugar Cover is just 10 minutes away. Couldn't ask for a better spot and looking forward to going back and will tell my friends.

For us, Sprecklesville and Sprecks Plantation House was the perfect base for our two week stay in Maui. We're active and were not looking for accomodations we would necessarily spend a lot of time in. Sprecks is central to windsurfing beaches, close to Paia (which we love), close to the Haleakala Crater (which we road our bikes up!) and close to Kahalui (which we frequented for beer runs and fresh seafood). That said, the facilities at the Plantation House fit the bill - recently reno'd as mentioned by others, and with amenities like gas bbq's, outdoor showers and laundry which made life easy. All in all, highly recommended.

Immaculate, peaceful, private and beautiful! I was in Plumeria suite for a month. It was spacious and had everything I needed and wanted.The owner, Carolyn is welcoming and kind. Her kitty, Puddy greets everyone in the driveway at night. Close to the airport, Paia, surfing beaches, and walking distance to baby beach for those with little ones.Easy to get to Lahaina and Kihei from here.Some airplane noise, no traffic noise at all; mostly just the wind in the trees and bird-sounds..
Not for those who require ocean vista from their rooms or for the party types---although both experiences are not far from here
