curb appeal ~ coronado island

My husband and I celebrated our anniversary this weekend on Coronado Island.  We brought our bikes and enjoyed a lovely and cool day biking around the island.  After eating a yummy breakfast at Clayton's, we explored the beautiful, historic neighborhood right next to the Hotel del Coronado.  

This home has a vintage bike out front used to permanently display geraniums.  

One of my favorites was this white one.

They love their water polo players on the island.  We saw quite a few homes with this same sign out in front!.

Beach-front craftsman style. 

This home was incredible to see in person.  So much detail!  It kind of reminded me of the house in the movie Sunset Boulevard, probably from the same era. 

I love the round porch with the black and white balloon shades - wow!

Reminds me of Beverly Hills, pink and gated.

This historic house is known as the Baby Del
a mini version of the Hotel Del.  

Not such a bad location, huh? 

Another lovely round porch, and back to the hotel!  
I've got lots more to post about the Hotel Del and San Diego...Stay tuned!

ciao! fabiana
