A reporter contacted me just after the hurricane for a comment. I was completely speechless. The first I heard of it was from Tikilicious and Steve at the gathering at the Mai Kai when it reopened. It's a huge blow - I'm going to try to stop by this week and take some pictures. Very sad indeed..
Yee-Haw & Aloha,

Apparently there is a big threat of mold in a lot of the units now, and it seems most of these folks aren't insured for that sort of thing. Makes me afraid for this fine old relic. Please keep everyone posted, tiki_kiliki, and thanks for all those terrific photos.

Having gone through the 2004 hurricanes up here in Central Florida- I'd say its at best 50/50 for whether or not that place will get dozed.

Alot of the older places that got damaged up here- apts, hotels, etc, simply sold out to developers, who plowed them to put in new condos.

I still see new doze-jobs going down every week up here along the A1A. The landscape around here is changing pretty quickly as a result of Frances and Jeanne. Not that its necessarily a bad thing in my case, as for the most part the losses weren't anything tiki or overly googie but the Hawaiian Gardens is a really awesome place. I about fainted when I first saw that entry hut.

By the sound of it, that place got it pretty bad, and may very likely fall to the ball.

If enough units are unscathed, it may end up that they just rebuild the damaged ones, but if half or more is getting mold infested.. everyone might just decide to sell out.

Either way, somebody needs to get down there and investigate, as they might be hauling off or tossing out tikis as I write this.

Any update on the fate of Hawaiian Gardens??
I'll be down that way in June and was hoping to swing by and check it out!

Hello Everyone, I am new to Tiki Central. I found you because I was doing a search on my mama's condo and there you were ! I have been going to Hawaiian gardens since the mid 70's when my parents bought their condo and moved from Queen's New York. Dad was actually the president of Phase V in the late 70's and soon after he passed on to Tiki Heaven. I will send some photos as soon as I can. I'm on my way there and need to sell a lot of Mama's things and her condo ! She's going to be 90 this year and can't stay alone anymore but she is still beautiful in heart & spirit. By the way my aunt and uncles' condo, about 20 miles away, was almost blown away and they ended up staying at Hawaiian Gardens last year while their apt was rebuilt so as far as I know HG is holding on strong, blessed.
