Hello everyone!

So you may have noticed that I have a liking to beach houses. Well I decided that I wanted to build a home that would really have a truly tropical feel to it! And so, I present to you Tropic Tides. This two bedroom residence is inspired by homes and hotels built in many tropical areas with thatched roofs and small open air hut style buildings. The rooms of this house are split into different small buildings, each made with tropical wooden walls, topped with a thatched roof, and furnished with items that will bring the island feel indoors. There are two bedrooms in the house, one main bedroom and a smaller bedroom with two single beds. Between them is the main bathroom. The covered walkways then lead you to the kitchen, living room, and small back lounge deck where you can sit and read while enjoying the tropical breeze. In front of the home are two boat docks and the stairs leading to the path back to the main road. There is lots of lush vegetation surrounding the property and the crystal clear waters below it offer a clear view at whatever aquatic life may happen to swim by.

This lot was built and designed to be placed on Crystal Cove in Isla Paradiso. Originally it is the Crystal Waters Beach.

I hope you enjoy this lush little residence! It was so fun to build and play around in and I hope your Sims can enjoy living the island life inside of it as well

Thanks! I believe that if I were to live on an island I'd live in a house like this

This is awesome. I've been looking around for water huts to replace the one set I had that came with the Suvadiva Resort World. Great job decorating. Love it. Thank you so much.

This is among the most attractive lots I've seen so far. I don't have Island Paradise installed at the moment, recent re-install of Windows & everything else and I'm slowly putting Sims3 back in bit by bit & starting out from scratch. When IP does go in though, I definitely want this lot in there. Thanks for making this and sharing it with us, much appreciated. Just a quick question; could this be used with Sunlit Tides, or was it designed specifically for Isla Paradiso with it's deeper water and the new features of the expansion?

It was built to mostly fit in crystal water beach in isla paradiso. But you can always experiment in other places and see if it works. It just may!

Okay I gotcha. I'll give it a blast in Sunlit Tides, see how it goes. If you have that SC, you probably already know, the big problem with that one - large as it is - is finding some space in there build anything. If I can fit it in somewhere, I'll let you know how it goes. Thanks again for the share.

This lot is awesome, thank you so much. I'm using it to play Isla Paradiso for the first time. (I've used it as a vacation world before.)

I only have two small issues. One, I had to put a door at the kitchen unit, instead of an arch, as sims were routing all the way to the back bedrooms and those doors upon arrival. I set the kitchen as the front door.
Also, when the paperkids bring the newspaper, they swim to the middle and drop it on the sand next to the living room, instead of at the front by the mailbox. Easy to fix as I just click and drag the paper to where I want it. I'm not sure how to fix that, though.

Thank you for this awesome home!
