Humuhumu’s description

Kimo's Iki Tiki Ahi Hale is the home tiki bar of James & Brigitte Crawford in Morgan Hill, California, just south of San Jose. The couple built the space in March 2016, after being inspired by attending the South San Francisco Bay Area Home Tiki Bar Crawl in 2015. It's in a free-standing 16'x20' building in their backyard, built from the ground up by the couple. Kimo is Hawaiian for Jim, and the bar's name roughly translates to "Jim's Little Tiki Firehouse," a nod to Kimo's work as a fire chief.
The decor and design in the space include nods to Disneyland's Adventureland, The Enchanted Tiki Room

Themed Attraction
, the couple's English bulldogs, and Kimo's fire service career. There are over 65 rums, a lava wall, a surfing bulldog, an elevated fire truck, and 80% of the art on display comes from artists the couple considers to be friends and ohana. The couple loves having pu pus and cocktails as an excuse to gather, and has accommodated small crowds of 2-8 people all the way up to large parties of 25-65 people.
Brigitte says, "E Komo Mai is our motto, let us know when you are in the area and we would love to share a night at Kimo's with you!"

Great couple who built the bar with their own money on the residence they were allowed to live on which was on state property. Local news puffed the story up to make it sound news worthy but Kimo's supervisors knew about the private man cave all along. They asked him to take it down once the news tried to make a story about it. Unfortunate.

Built on State Property. It was all over the news how he misused State funds to get the thing built. Really low class.
