The Helene Morgan Residence is a single story, Hawaiian style duplex with a pair of double-pitched hipped roofs with overhanging eaves and exposed rafter tails. Presently, the house is a single family dwelling, but originally it was two separate laid out units connected by a passage. The duplex sits on a raised, post and pier, foundation with lava rocks at the base. The house is located on a flat lot in a residential neighborhood at the end of Waikiki within walking distance of the beach and Kapiolani Park. Located along Diamond Head Road, the property sits below Leahi, the peak of which can be seen from the property, and is part of the Diamond Head Terrace subdivision, which was platted in the early 1920s.
