Get ready for bottomless mai tais: Nothing says summer like a great outdoor Tiki bar.
Just the idea quickly conjures up ocean breezes rustling through a palm-thatched roof while you sip a frothy drink, perhaps with a pineapple wedge garnishing the rim.
But you don’t have to go on a fancy vacation to belly up to one of these bars. You can enjoy your fruity cocktails year-round if you wind up with one of these half-dozen homes that come with Tiki bars and are on the market right now.
They’re all located in vacation destinations throughout the country, so if you own one, you could always rent it out for a little help with the mortgage payments.
Owning a home with its own outdoor tropical paradise might seem like a dream, but consider the options below. Your Tiki bar fantasy might just be within reach.
Bar and spa: Nothing makes every day feel like a vacation like a retreat in sunny San Diego. This palm-filled Tiki bar even has a hot tub right next to the counter, perfect for sipping a cold drink while soaking in jetted water.
The rest of the house ain’t bad either. It features four bedrooms and three baths, plus a rooftop deck with a fire pit and ocean views. The spacious primary suite comes with a balcony.
And here’s the icing on the coconut cake: There’s a two-bedroom, 1.5-bath accessory dwelling unit above a three-car garage. It’s currently rented out for $3,000 a month. This sweet income is due to the property’s location in Ocean Beach, where you can see the fireworks from Sea World and walk to all the great shops and restaurants the area has to offer.
Party in the back: The front exterior of this stately contemporary home doesn’t hint that the backyard is party central, with its thatch-roofed bar. This festive feature happens to sit on a private pier on Lake Conroe.
The property is part of the golf course community in Bentwater. It comes with a sun deck, a heated saltwater pool, a boathouse with a lift, and a sweet patio.
The interior of the four-bedroom, 3.5-bath, 3,457-square-foot home sports a nautical yet elegant aesthetic. Large windows across the back of the home offer water views. And there’s a chef’s kitchen, a first-floor primary suite, and an upstairs game room with a gas fireplace and a balcony.
Resort-style getaway: A waterfall, putting green, pool, lagoon, pier, Tiki bar—this waterfront home has all the resort-style amenities most people could ever desire.
The backyard comes with a private dock on a spring-fed lake, a lagoon-style heated pool with a rock waterfall and jets, and a three-hole putting green.
The thatched-roof Tiki bar is held up by barrels and comes equipped with a sink, a small fridge, and electrical hookups.
Inside the 1,892-square-foot house, there are three bedrooms, two baths, a billiard room, and a garage with an electric charging station. The home comes with hurricane protection.
Downtown compound: This spread contains two homes, a Tiki bar, a workshop, a garage, and a large deck with a hot tub.
The front home is a tastefully updated, three-bedroom, brick ranch. The back house is a two-story with two bedrooms and two baths, previously used as a short-term rental.
The Tiki bar sits between the homes, as does a wood-burning grill specially designed for an oyster roast.
The property comes fully furnished and is within walking distance of the Brooklyn Arts Center, Live Oak Pavilion, and just about everything else that makes downtown Wilmington so special.
Double delight: The owners love Tiki bars so much that they added two—one inside and one out—to their two-bedroom, 2.5-bath house. So when the weather is less than perfect, you can take the party inside. More cocktails for everyone!
Enhancing the vacation vibe of this 3,193-square-foot home is its location just across the street from the white-sand beaches of the Gulf of Mexico. Wrap-around porches offer spectacular water views.
Inside the colorful main house, you’ll find a kitchen with an island, a spiffed-up primary suite with dual closets and a luxe bath, and a gorgeous room at the top of the stairs with 360-degree views.
The property includes a saltwater pool and a guest cottage.
Better than a sports bar: With this newly built Tiki bar featuring a large-screen TV and full-size refrigerator-freezer, along with an oversized pool and hot tub, you’ll never need to leave. The high-quality outdoor sound system can serenade you with Jimmy Buffett tunes day and night.
Of course, the inside is comfy, too. The three-bedroom, 2.5-bath 1,758-square-foot home has been remodeled for rental purposes. You could make it your private getaway or offer it up as a short-term rental.
It’s located in the Matanzas Preserve, which is just a short walk or bike ride of Fort Meyers Beach and the Times Square Area, where there are shops, restaurants, and activities along 7 miles of coastline.
