    love the location and the view, but the inside has a lot of problems. I hate the zebra rug for starters, and likewise the ceiling over it. Interesting what they've done with the KLM bottles. I hate the stairs with the painted trees and bird houses, too.

    I had a collection of those KLM bottles but they went AWOL over the years. Bugger. The house is great but remove all the hideous furnishings.

    Just because you're offended doesn't mean you're right.

    Skinned carcass lain out in front of a Buddha - aiming for "eclectic"?

    Liked the red paint in the kitchen/dining, and everything about the pink pseudo-outside dining area.

    Ugh, HATE the kitchen. Was it a Bordello in it's past life?
