Hi everyone! Today I am bringing you a fun little build I put together earlier today. This is based on images I've seen of island homes and tropical residences in Fiji and Bali. I love the looks of these homes, with tall thatched roofs and open air rooms, and wanted to build one in my game. I built this home on the hidden island called Plumbob Island in Isla Paradiso. However, this lot will work just fine on any 64x64 size lot you place in the ocean. The layout is simple for this home, as it is only one bedroom and one bathroom with a connected kitchen and living room. There is a large wrap around porch around the entire home and the walls are open air to let the tropical breeze through. There is also a long swimming pool and hot tub for your Sims to dip into on a warm evening. They can also relax on the beach under a cabana or take a swim for seashells or to advance their fishing skills. You may also note that there is no television in the home. You can add one if you wish, but I say if you live in a tropical environment with so many fun things to do around you, don't sit around watching television!

Anyway! I really hope you enjoy this little island lot and have fun with it in your games! Happy Simming!

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file.
2. Select the .sims3pack file you got from extracting.
3. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
5. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Select the house icon, find the lot in the list, and tick the box next to it. Then press the Install button below the list.
6. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the lot to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
7. Run the game, and find your lot in Edit Town, in the premade lots bin.

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.
