Be a duck in Kailua

Why did the duck cross the road? To get to Kainui Canal.

They don’t call Kainui Road “Duck Road” for nothing—this is where many ducks cross to get to the canal on the other side. And now, there’s a new listing that opens up to the canal so you can get there, too. (Click here for details.)

Technically, this home is 55 years old, but it’s been renovated many times over the years (with the last and biggest one done in the last five). The result is a house with a very open, “old Hawaiiana” ambience, but with modern elements.

At 3,162 square feet, it’s got three bedrooms and three bathrooms, plus a spiral staircase leading up to one-bedroom, one-bathroom guest quarters with its own lanai.

The best part is outside: The lot is a spacious10,934 square feet and features a large lava rock pool with a waterfall. It’s got a free-form shape to make it look like a natural, tropical water element.

If you’re more into the great outdoors, you can step off the yard and into the canal to kayak or stand-up paddle straight out to the ocean.

Money talk: $1,259,000 fee simple
