Humuhumu’s description

Polynesian Gardens Condominiums is a large, multi-building housing complex in southern Florida with Polynesian theming, including Witco furniture and art. Built in 1974, the amenities for residents include not just a swimming pool and billiards tables, but a regulation, four-lane bowling alley—each lane ends in the mouth of a giant tiki head. The lobby has beautiful painted murals of bathing Polynesian maidens, and a massive oil lamp sculpture. The condominium complex initially targeted Jewish people, especially the large population of people moving to southern Florida from colder northern climes. When the condos were first being marketed, actress Eve Arden's name was used, but it's unclear if she was an owner, investor, or was only lending her name to the property.
