San Diego, CA - Tiki House

Ran across this listing and thought it had a great MCM tiki feel. I'm not a realtor and have no financial interest in this one -- just would love to see it go to an appreciative buyer rather than someone who might remuddle it. http://www.weichert.com/36262586/?ldview=ldsummary There are also a few P...

Thanks for the images and suggestions. Yogi Bear & The Three Stooges aren't quite what I was thinking, but I'll investigate La Dolce Henke a bit more. Have heard tunes from it, but admittedly never looked at it as a whole to see what it's overall inspiration was. Keep 'em comin', and thanks again!
