This house was built on one of the beach lots, unfortunately it will loose the "beautiful vista" moodlet during upload.

This house has a 3 car garage, 4 bedrooms - 1 is decorated as a nursery, 3 full bathrooms and a 1/2 bath, a pool and 2 fireplaces. It also has a small "guesthouse" with a bed, small kitchen (well it has a fridge), and a bathroom.

I used the Tiki Set, Storybook Set, and pieces of the Bayside Set all available from the EA Store when decorating the house.

It is on a 4x4 lot. I built this on the lot that the Wolff family lives in a default game.

It costs 227,576 Furnished and 135,135 Unfurnished.

Lot Size: 4x4
Lot Price: 227,576

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.

Very nice house! It's really beautiful, I love the entrance shot. I don't have the Tiki set, though. Would the Tiki objects simply not show up (like in TS2) or would there be an error?

I did not. Thank you very much for the heads up! I just went there and saw it, not sure what I can do about it tho.

Edit: what's weird is that "Beach Villa" is what I called it when I was building it, but I renamed it, maybe the new name didn't take, but it packaged it a "Belle Vista".

leovenancio123 - I think that if you are missing anything included in the house that the game will just substitute something else in place of it.

No problem! I noticed both usernames weren't the same so I thought something was fishy.. You can try reporting it. There's been a lot of cases of creation-theft and people always report it but I'm not sure if it does much but it doesn't hurt to try! I'll report it too to see if they'll take any action if it's more than one person :P

Thanks! I did report it, not sure if they'll do anything about it. I never go to the exchange, so I never would have even known about it, I appreciate you taking the time to let me know, and for reporting it yourself. I'll have to stop by there more often. LOL

i'm not sure if i'm allowed to post this but this is a great house.

but you need the sets to use them

the TS3 store items can be found at that download..

they work.. i use them.. put it in ts3> downloads

and install them like you usually would with something you buy.

if this isn't allowed, delete it.

and no it's not a virus.

this is where i got it from

theres more downloads [the lounge is on page 7 and the new hair and clothes are on 9]
