The Mrs. Mary Anehe Mendonca Beach Cottage was designed by architect Ray Morris and constructed in 1936. The residence is situated on a point and is a single story, L-shaped, Hawaiian style house. The house features single wall construction with a double pitched, hip roof, and board and batten siding. The residence runs parallel to the beach in roughly an east-west direction. The Mrs. Mary Anehe Mendonca Beach Cottage is significant architectural on a local level as an example of a Hawaiian style beach cottage constructed in Hawaii. In addition, it is significant for its associations with the history of Mokuleia and its development as a beach community.
