"Paradise Flats" Series
This is a series of more modern styled houses that you might find in hotter climates such as beaches or desert type areas, some are beach houses I made (but never uploaded) in TS2 and am remaking for TS3.

Hasta La Villa
For those'a times wenna your sim justa hasta!

3 Bedroom
2 Bathroom
Kitchen / dinning room
Livingroom areas
Rear patio area with BBQ Grill facility and bar

Lot Size: 30x30
Lot Price: $81,243 (F) / $52,224 (Unf)

Side Notes
This is a medium / large house, could probably fit up to 6 sims comfortably if they're willing to share bedrooms! The study could probably be converted into a 4th bedroom too since there is a bookcase downstairs already, and the desk / computer put in the upstairs hallway.

Have done some basic testing, everything seems in order (all objects seem to be accessable so far as I could see). If anyone finds any issues please let me know and I'll try to correct them as promptly as possible.

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 cheat, it's a game option called "Free rotate" .. choose the "pick up" tool then hold down the ALT key, instead of clicking once to pick up an object you click and hold the mouse button too and as you move the mouse around the object it will rotate freely, it won't snap to the 45 degree angle. You can also pick up anb object and hold the ALT key to place objects on the floor without them snapping onto the grid.

Hope that makes sense and helps
