There are houses and he has lived there to this time. Six houses are there, five of which are under Kauliokamoa's care and this property had been given to him by his parents-in-law and they live there together.

Kano, sworn by the Word of God and reltated, I have seen this place during the time of Poli. I had seen Kauliokamoa living there in the year 1828 and he is living there at the present time. It has been enclosed and there are 6 houses, 4 of which are for the property possessors, 2 for Kauliokamoa himself, 1 of which is broken and he is thinking of building a new house. The boundaries are just as Apii has related to you. That is what I have known.
