The Kahikinui House is a one-story wooden structure raised about two feet above grade on stone footings. Covered partially with boards and battens, the house has a shingled gable roof. The Kahikinui House is being recommended for reserve status based on a combination of architectural and historical interest. Little is known of the exact start of Kahikinui Ranch, although it was probably the first large ranch in the dry, south part of the island.
