The Kamaunu Residence was built in 1931. The house has a hipped roof, casement windows, and is elevated on a post on block foundation that is covered with vertical wood slates. The interior features tongue and groove paneling and much of the original materials including windows, doors, built-ins, and hardware. The Kamaunu Residence is significant for its association with the early development of Hawaiian Homelands homesteads in Nanakuli. It is a rare example of a draftsman designed and carpenter constructed house built in the area in the early 1930s.
