The Islander apartment complex in Santa Ana, California is a typical SoCal tiki themed apartment complex.
It has all of the elements that make a great tiki complex.
1. Lots of lush landscaping around the pool and garden paths.
2. It has a central swimming pool. It is very common to see a large A-frame structure around the pool building.
3. This complex has a little history associated with it because it was where storied beachcomber, Mr. Eli Hedley, retired to.
4. When hunting down these complexes today, it is actually pretty rare to still find tikis unless they are an integral part of a struture and can't be removed. The remaining tikis here at the Islander fall into that category. The free standing tikis are long gone or rotted away.
This tiki is still here because he is holding up the roof.
