This Folk Victorian house is a rambling single-story building, with numerous rooms connected by a roofed lanai. There have been no major alterations or additions to this beach house complex. The A. S. Wilcox beach house is architecturally significant as a good, surviving example of a late nineteenth-/early twentieth-century house in Hawaii, and its association with Albert Spencer Wilcox. Its rambling design and separation of social, cooking, and sleeping functions into detached rooms connected by a lanai is typical of the period.
