The Parker Residence sits on a sloping lot and overlooks Pukihae stream. The single-story, single-wall bungalow has a corrugated metal hip roof with overhanging closed eaves, and an outset, intersecting gable-roofed porch that dominates the left side of the facade.  The structure has vertical tongue and groove walls and double-hung sash window with a single-pane bottom sash, and an upper sash with six panes. The Parker Residence is significant for its associations with the development of Halaulani Place as well as the development of Hilo. In addition, it is a good example of a bungalow constructed in Hawaii in the 1920s.
