Hello again everyone! Today I'm uploading a new little island home for your tropic loving Sims. This little house is meant primarily for either a single Sim or a married couple. There is one bedroom and two bathrooms as well as a kitchen, living room, and lots of open deck space. The home is built to be placed on Palm Beach, Pirate Island in Isla Paradiso. I wanted to make a home that felt natural and open, built of natural wood with high peaked thatched roofs. The main kitchen and living room are set in their own little building surrounded with large glass windows to let in as much natural light as possible. The bedroom and master bathroom can be reached by a set of stairs to another small hut building. The property is surrounded by thick vegetation giving it a good tropical atmosphere. There is a small dock with a boat so you can sail to the mainland whenever need be.

I hope you enjoy this tropical home. It can make a wonderful vacation home for your Sims or a full time residence if they like smaller living. Either way I hope you like it and have fun placing it in your games.

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.

No problem! This is exactly the kind of tropical feel I'd love in an island house ^^
