Aaaargh! Photos, who has photos !? Did it change owners? Anyone left there that was there in the heyday?



Bigbro,

I came across this amazing postcard on flickr showing the original apartment grounds.

Painted storyboard A-Frames, a big Tiki mask on the wall and outrigger beams.







The incredible pool lobby.



The back of the card.

Indeed, what a find! I knew SOMETHING must exist of the glory days of this place. Ironically, Zulu Magoo had just found a copy of this card last week (turns out it's the same one). It is most gratifying to see proof of the PNG painted gables, and the outrigger beams. And that Moai mask on the building - and be wondering about some of the other details that are too hard to make out...

Oh to find good quality photos of this Tiki village in its original state! In size and A-frame multitude it surely was one of the most spectacular Polynesian apartment complexes ever built. I took the opportunity to visit when attending Tiki Oasis 12, and paradise girl showed me an original brochure she borrowed from one of the older tenants:





I also took some more photos of the building and rec room:



Imagine this A-frame face fully painted as in the postcard above!:


Side view of the rec room building:


Interior of rec room:


From the pool side:


From the 2nd level:


And of course, the last surviving outrigger (as shown on other buildings on the postcard):

DC amazing, I would have killed to have those for my SD talk, that building has/had so much potential.
