When we visited Charleston we knew we wanted more than a pair of hotel rooms but between price and availability we weren’t able to find what we wanted in a hotel property. So eventually we landed at a Wyndham Vacation Rental on the Isle of Palms. It was laid out perfectly with two bedrooms, two bathrooms a small kitchen and a living space with enough comfy chairs for everyone AND free wireless internet. The unit over looked a pool, was a short walk to the beach and was part of a larger resort that offered bike rentals and other amenities. In a word, it was perfect.
Well, there was this one thing. Um, whoever decorated the space had some REALLY interesting tastes. The overall theme was Key West Modern which really makes sense given the location and the setting, but the execution was well, kitchy.
The bedroom I shared had a nautical theme. IN YO FACE, OVER THE TOP NAUTICAL YO!
These gems hung out in the kitchen, I’d hate to disturb this lovely just to get a cookie.
They looked out on the living space, inhabited by a wicker couch with cushions in a loud Hawaiian shirt pattern. Sorry, not photo as it was usually occupied :).
This? This is the piece de resistance. It is hung just outside the kitchen door, so I suspect it is an attempt at preventing vacation over indulgence (as if the cookie jar wasn’t enough), but it kind of gives me the creeps especially since I kept resting my hand on her bum as I looked for a light switch (turns out the switch was on the inside).
There was one item I just loved.
Because really who cares about time when you’re on vacation?
