Sea-Monkeys Bait & Switch: Restitution at Hokulani Golf Villas

My First Bait and Switch Circa 1971

I once ordered Sea Monkeys from the back of a comic book. This was pre internet where you had to mail an order form along with some cash and wait and wait and wait. I spent hours fawning over the lively cartoon advertisement and couldn’t wait to have these magical creatures in my own bedroom, with tiaras and wands, dancing and playing in their elaborate subaquatic castles.

Imagine my horror when the package arrived nearly a month later and the Sea Monkeys were little more than freeze dried microscopic insects – barely visible grey shrimp-like larvae in a sterile plastic “aquarium” that looked more like a specimen collector. My dreams were crushed. It was my first taste of Bait and Switch. Instant pets! Yeah right.

What About Those Beautiful Real Estate Development Model Suites?

Sometimes when you are looking at Real Estate developments, they have these super buffed out model suites that have been meticulously art directed by talented designers. You walk in the door and are immediately enchanted. (Despite the wax museum-ish plastic fruit and cheese plate.) So you sign on the dotted line and your house gets built.

What was once a mere dot on the map is now brought into form – pristine white walls, and you move your bachelor pad/college furniture in – and voila! – you have a much uglier version of what you fell in love with.

Here at Hokulani Golf Villas, we have 3 such beautiful models to show you, and yes, they are meticulously and gorgeously buffed out by Wendy and Jessica of HUE Interiors, (and we even have a tasty looking plastic cheese plate), but here’s the great thing – two of the models are actually for sale! (Why not 3? Because someone already bought one!)

Not only are they for sale, but the gorgeous contents are also available for purchase separately. (Packages starting at roughly $60,000.) So you can actually buy what you see, instead of a vague “artist’s concept.” So feast your retinas on the following overview of Villa 51, and if you like what you see, contact me and let’s make it happen. Simple!

If I bought this model home I’d have one big bowl full of happiness! And I bet they allow pets too, even sea-monkeys.
