I love the Shelter Island area. I go fishing out of Point Loma and always try to stop by the various Tiki places when I am down there.

Here is a nice postcard with a night-time shot of the Half Moon Inn


And the back of the card

I took the family down to San Diego for the Charger/Bronco game this weekend and stayed at the Half Moon Inn for the first time. Fun place with the kids and a pool-side room.

There were a couple of nice masks inside the lobby with the great entrance.








There are still a few old tikis hanging around the pool area ...







They even added a new Tiki by the pool.



I was walking down a pathway towards the outdoor concert area and to my surprise found this guy (note the curious on-lookers!).



This tiki and fountain are located next to the old putting green area.



Went to happy hour at the Backstage Lounge which is in the old restaurant building. Still a great A-Frame. Good happy hour food at half price but bad Mai Tais, so we walked over to the Bali Hai for some real drinks.

Forgot to post this Tiki from the recent trip. He is outside of the pool area.





Found this matchbook with a nice Tiki illustration.

Picked up this older brochure from the Half Moon Inn.


A rendering from the room rate card.



Nice shot of San Diego from Shelter Island, you can see the Bali Hai Restaurant on the left side.


Some more images from the brochure.



They had a Tiki Tram to give you rides around Shelter Island!

Here are two of the tiki poles. This post is an April 2007 restoration of Shutterfly photos and I no longer remember the poles' exact placement, but one was in the pool area and shot from outside the pool fence.






This place is paradise! Still quite a few Tikis! Great pool, right off the bay so virtually surrounded by water, albeit not necessarily by a beach, and every room has an incredible A-Frame decor! And, right by the Bali Hai.

But, alas, no more bike rentals.

I picked up a matchbook from the very early period of the Half Moon Inn.

Here is an interesting piece of Shelter Island history: As evidenced by this architectural rendering, the Half Moon Inn initially was supposed to house a Steve Crane Ports of Call, as other Sheratons did. Now that would have been an added bonus!





Interesting indeed, Bigbro. Must have been close to happening, I spoted this standard Kon Tiki Ports menu that listed a Ports O Half Moon, Shelter Island location of the inside!







It is an early menu and there were other Kon Tiki/Ports o Call locations that opened after it was printed, wonder why this one fell through? Man that would have been something, right down the street from the Bali Hai!
