English: ʻĀinahau was the royal estate of Princess Victoria Kaʻiulani, heir to the throne of the Kingdom of Hawaiʻi. Located in Waikīkī, the 10 acre (40,000 m²) estate was deeded to the toddler Kaʻiulani by her godmother, Princess Ruth Keʻelikolani. Archibald Cleghorn, Kaʻiulani's Scottish father and former royal governor of Oʻahu, built a two-story home on the estate. It was furnished with two grand pianos, elaborate brocade chairs, gold and glass cabinets and fixtures. Also, there were various art collections displayed on the walls and rooms. From ʻĀinahau, the Cleghorn family would entertain Hawaiʻi's prestigious social circles. In Hawaiian, "ʻĀinahau" means, "the cool place". The name was chosen by Princess Likelike and she composed a song Ainahau.
