House built of kauila wood which once stood on the street in Honolulu which still bears the name of the building. It served as large council chamber or reception room for the King of Hawaii. drawn at the meeting of King Kamehameha III and Kinau with the French Captain Du Petit Thouars of the frigate La Venus and the British Captain Edward Belcher of the sloop-of-war Sulphur in which Thouars demanded equal protection for the French and Catholics in Hawaii. Present at this conference were the King, his sister Nahienaena, his wife Kalama, Kuakini (possibly asleep in the chair), Hoapili, Boki, Liliha, Kinau and other chiefs possibly including Francisco de Paula Marín which according to Thouars are drawn in "fair likeness". Thouars, calling it Queen Kinau's house, described the structure in his book Voyage autour du monde sur la frégate la Vénus, pendant les années 1836-1839:

La case de la reine, dans laquelle nous eûmes nos conférences avec les chefs, est une des plus belles; elle est située à l'E., sous les murs du fort, et auprès du bord de la mer. Cette maison, bâtie en bois et couverte d'herbes sèches, est placée au milieu d'une enceinte fermée d'une palissade. La plate-forme sur laquelle elle repose est élevée au dessus du sol de la cour d'environ 30 centimètres, et elle est entourée, extérieurement, d'une galerie couverte qui la rend plus agréable. Sa forme, à l'intérieur, est celle d'un rectangle allongé; dans l'un des bouts, il y a un appartement formé par une cloison en planches qui ne s'élève pas jusqu'au toit. Cette pièce sert de chambre à coucher; dans le reste de l'aire de la case, et à l'autre extrémité , il y a une portion du sol élevée de 28 à 30 centimètres, qui est recouverte de plusieurs nattes: c'est sur cette espèce de grand divan que se placent les dames; elles s'y tiennent couchées sur un côté ou suite ventre : c'est ainsi qu'elles reçoivent et se tiennent pour causer et faire salon.
