curb appeal on 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 favorite homes 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.  
It has sooo much detail!  
It kind of reminds 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!

This one 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, right? 

Another lovely round porch, 
and back to the hotel!  
I've got lots more to post about the 

Stay tuned!

ciao! fabiana

You chose a charming place to spend your anniversary. I haven't been to Coronado Island in some time, but your photos bring it back.

We went on a business trip/vacation years ago and stayed at the Hotel del Coronado and went biking around to see the houses, too. Fun seeing these again.
