Off the Florida Keys
There's a place called Kokomo
That's where you wanna go to get away from it all
Bodies in the sand
Tropical drink melting in your hand
We'll be falling in love
To the rhythm of a steel drum band
Down in Kokomo

Usually I can recognise your style while browsing the downloads, but this time I didn't, it's so very different. I really love the style, and I have to download this, even if it's just for those lovely dining chairs!

Hi sj, I don't have Belladonna installed right now, or I would check it. If the beaches are fairly flat, the lot should work. I was able to place it in the Blue Water Vilage terrain, Moon Islands terrain, and Crescent Island terrain. Thanks for the question.

Oh LadyAngel! thanks so much for noticing the chairs! It took a bunch of tries to get it to look like fabric. I plan to upload to your site with more fabric choices!

Oh I know, you can tell how important bathrooms are right after the first meal served to the neighbors who come to welcome! So glad you like the design. Sjader sent me pictures.

Hope your Sims enjoy it SciBirg! I have a tan little couple living there and think that the little room next to the second bedroom will make a good nursery.

Really!! You live in a nice place Catherine! What could be more lovely than Florida? I've been to the Miami airport, but that's it. Cousin Betty lives in Pensacola, but that's a far cry from Arizona. We always go to California!

bubbajoe, many thanks for your comment! Remember when you remodeled one of my houses, I think it was Futura Point and then you let me see screenshots. I loved that!

So my sim wants a vacation home, but I don't want them to have just any vacation home so I am here and thinking they'd love this Kokomo beach ouse house! The sim is actually a congressperson and ruling patriarch of one of my oldest families and he needs someplace relaxing to take his family for a getaway. This looks perfect!

Edit: So I got some playtime in, and I loved it! I made a little album of what my sim did

I am super in-love with the back deck, and the tropic landscaping. like 80% of the playtime in the house involved the beach or deck. The parents slept in the master on the second floor, the girls shared the extra bedroom on the second, and the son got the third floor to himself. I did minor re-decorating - made the counters blue instead of coral, switched out the dresser in the extra bedroom for a one-tile one and put it in the corner, switched out an end-table lamp with a hula girl lamp, also added a fish tank in the foyer. For some reason the recolors of the paintings didn't work When I went into play, I got the regular fancy teapot art for the ones around the tv so just took them down.

Aw, thanks so much for the update. I'm thrilled that you like the house. I have noticed that some of my cc like bedspreads and painting recolors aren't showing up when I use the Sims2CleanInstaller. I always wondered if they would show up in the lot and now I know that they don't. Wonder why? Of course my download folder is pretty impressively full. Maybe I've over done it. Thanks so much Charmful for writing!
