1 bed, 1 bath, sleeps 3 Inquire today!
This unit is a unique romantic 1 bedroom with a spiral staircase leading to a cozy loft with a full size bed where you will lay your head after a day of exploring Kailua and Oahu.
The Spiral Nest unit is 300 + square feet and the loft is a cozy 12 x 6 space. The spiral staircase is a bit narrow but can I certainly be navigated for the right people.
We have a full bathroom with a tub and kitchen equiped with everything you will need for simple meals at home.
The unit is located on a beautifully landscaped canal front property where you can relax in the shade or rent a kayak and paddle down to where the canal meets the sea. The canal is home to several friendly and happy ducks and the locals call this street 'Duck Road'.
Kailua beach is just a 3 minute drive or a 10 minute healthy walk to toes in the sand where you can walk for miles, surf, beach comb, body surf or just lay in the Hawaiian sun. This part of Kailua beach is referred to as the 'quiet end' of the beach.
Kawainui Marsh is very close to the home as well and here you will find home to native Hawaiian plants as well as lots of happy ducks and fish.
Kailua town is a quick 3 minute drive away where you will find several places to eat, shop, farmers markets, yoga and so much more.
There are ample bike paths in Kailua to get you to town or the beach.
We have parking for one compact car just outside the unit.
There is a bus stop located within walking distance where you can catch the bus and get around the island.
We welcome you to call this unique place your home away from home during your vacation. E komo mai....come on in!

Simple loft apartment on magical canal!
The apartment itself is modest, but perfect for one person or a couple. The canal access is absolutely enchanting and it was easy to get anywhere from the location! Katie is a sweetheart and the space was clean and rather spacious, with efficiency kitchen. Couldn’t have picked a better place for my needs!!
SMALL BUT COMFORTABLE.
This property was absolutely perfect! It isn't far from Honolulu and many other attractions, but is far enough out that it was perfect for a peaceful, relaxed stay. I stayed here by myself, and felt very safe. The caretaker, Jagy, was great. The place was clean and bright. I would stay at the Spiral Nest again.
Great for a couple in a compact car
The place was exactly as advertised. Cute, compact, clean. As she says you absolutely must have a compact car and be able to climb a narrow stair case.
We felt cozy in our nest !
We stayed there for 6 days and we absolutely loved it !
We didn’t have a car and it was easy to reach by bus. It is then a 15-minute walk to the beach (the beach is gorgeous and not crowded) and a 30-minute walk to town, which didn’t bother us (we usually hitchhiked on our way back home and it worked fine). You can take the pathway going through the marsh to get to town and it is a lovely walk.
What we liked the most was the terrace on which we could eat even when it was raining. There is a lot of greenery and the place really feel serene. Even if the (very nice) landlord lives next door, the arrangement and the plants really give you a sense of privacy. You just need to know that the road isn’t far so you hear the cars but you will soon forget them !
Not worth the money.
Unless you have a compact car parking is very difficult. Very dated furnishings. Queen sheets on full bed made for very uncomfortable sleeping. Not receptacles in loft for nightlight to maneuver spiral staircase. Many sharp edges on steps. Sustained three cuts on head while trying to turn on desk lamp. Futon soiled and uncomfortable. Owner complained to me that motion light stayed on all day. He obviously more concerned over say a few dollars than renter safety at night. Manual light in carport not useful after dark. Their advertising is deceptive.
Hello, I am sorry you feel that you were mislead with the way we advertise the unit. We clearly state that the parking is for a compact car and that there is a small spiral staircase in the unit up to the loft for sleeping. We realize this unit is not for everybody that is why we have those things noted for inquires to see before they book. I reached out to you a couple of times via email to see how your stay was going and I did not hear back from you. I wish you would have told me how you felt as I would have helped you in some way (new sheets, a different parking option, extra lights etc). This unit is very affordable and we think a great deal for a unit like this in Kailua. I do hope you were able to enjoy your time in Kailua regardless of your experience at the Spiral Nest. Regards, Katie
Kailua is a wonderful town with so much to offer. You can walk the beach for miles, body surf, kayak and so much more. The town has wonderful places to eat, shop, farmers markets, yoga and so much to explore! There is the Kawainui March just minutes from the home that is a beautiful place to explore nature in Hawaii. This home is located by a bus stop that can take you around the island. There are great bike paths in Kailua as well.
