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.

It's so beautiful and romantic, I cannot resist grabbing it
I'll use it for insane sims since they're are able to fish in the pools (and actually catch stuff! lol)

I love all the little details in this build. Awesome! It looks so realistic and will perfectly fit into the new world of the Island Paradise EP. Thank you for this lovely creation and for sharing with us.

This is amazing - I tried to build a houseboat myself, but I don´t have an idea how you let sink the walls into the swimmingpool. If you want, please give me a hint. :-)

This is absolutely amazing!! Now you can build as a fully functional houseboat in Island Paradise, but this is still fabulous as it is. Awesome job!
