I found the Island Breeze over a year ago but was unable to gain access to the interior. I appreciate the fact that the original sign still exists though.

Three entrances like this one. Barbed wire and security gates. This time I hung out in the back and waited. Finally someone had to dump trash in the dumpsters out back. I held the gate for him and he let me in.

There's a pool, but no tikis around it. The only tikis left in the whole complex are the posts at this standalone office a-frame:

Same carver who did the tikis and posts at the Islander in Gardena, the Tiki Aloha in Torrance, and the Kala Kai in Lomita.

A view of the carvings on the back of the posts:

I found this a satisfying end to a good day of tiki apartment hunting.
