Next time you find yourself in the Los Angeles suburb of Whittier, you are in for a real tiki treat. Your first stop, should of course be Oceanic Arts to shop and browse all of the incredible Polynesian Pop items, décor and materials they have for sale. However, when you are done shopping, before you jump back onto the California freeways, make a quick detour 10 minutes south along Whittier Boulevard and you will find the beautiful Hali Kalani apartments.
The main entrance into the complex leads thru this beautifully maintained A-Frame.
I love the way the concrete stairs slabs that lead up to the door are offset from each other.
Here are the only remaining tikis I found in the complex. It appears that a local tikiphile lives here.

It wouldn’t be Southern California without the palm trees and giant albino bird of paradise plants to provide the lush tropical atmosphere.
If you want to stop by for a visit, you can find the Hali Kalani Apartments at 10041 Scott Avenue in Whittier, California.
