Did Emily and Tyler of Canoga Park know what they were getting into when they answered that Craigslist posting? The Discovery Channel's Monster House crew showed up and turned their innocent suburban home into "Tropical House", featuring a fire-breathing tiki god in the living room, a cavelike bedroom and bamboo galore. If you dream of Gilligan, this tropical-kitsch hideaway could be yours: it's currently listed at $515,000 on ebay. With three bedrooms and a pool, it's a steal, in a washed-up kind of way.
