Good job, Kate. I must say they did a very respectful job with the color on those hallway panel Tikis. As I was still making up my mind about the one by the pool...


.....it struck me that I had seen this type before...right on my front porch!:



Now we have proof positive that the Kona Kai/ Kona Pali carver was the same than the one who did the Playa del Rey Polynesian Village Apartments, because this puppy came to me (via detour) from there. I had always referred to him as the clown Tiki because of his nose. Luckily they didn't paint it red! The Playa del Rey Tikis by the way were the only ones painted straight black, together with the Shelter Isle Apts Tikis (also by the same carver), about which I will post here soon.

A number of insanely large Cell Phone pics [2560 x 1920 pixels!] of the Kona-Kai, showing the Tikis are still being taken care of, but could you a little TLC:

I don't have the charm of Tiki Kate, so I didn't finagle my way inside to take better interior pictures.
