    I don't mind the exterior, I love the views, but the decor is hideous. The bathroom is especially awful and looks like someone has vomited exorcist-style and then allowed mold to grow on it.

    The wallpaper is probably the worst I've seen. The views are simply magnificent and I'd trash most of the interior and re-do. Love the pool area.

    I love the Moroccan influence, the beautiful tiles on the fountain and the pool is gorgeous.

    But yeah, the decor, the furniture, the wallpaper and whatever the fuck kind of lighting fixture that is in the pic below--that's all hideous.

    Just let me have it, I'd have it done in a week. Starting with the bathroom, curtains & assorted wallpaper...

    I don't think that is a fixture, I think it's the corner of the room.

    it's really weird, like some kind of moorish art deco folly. wouldn't want to live there but at the same time it should be preserved.

    I like the outside, the views, the spaces, etc.

    The decor, well...that is another question. But that is the easiest thing to change, too.

    I have been to Lake Elsinore-do not remember anything about this place though. Probably because I was only a teenager.
    Don't slap me, cause I'm not in the mood!

    Ah, okay. That totally threw me. Unfortunately it's still ugly.
