Waves crashing against the beach, Skies above as blue as the ocean, White sand below your feet. Who could want more? Escape to the Beach Dwellings where all your dreams will come true.

This 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom villa was built on a 2x3 lot and is priced at $19,763. It is unfurnished with an open floor plan downstairs.


A very special thanks to Tiko for his (or her :-S) extremely helpful tutorial on TSR that explains how to put houses in neighborhood water. Please read this to get the beach effect!

It is so very nice to be able to have beachy lots, even though I don't have Bon Voyage. At least my Sims can wade in the surf!

I do hate to be the annoying one who writes this, but I am having the worst time trying to get the Georgian French doors! I keep getting that stupid notice on WinRar, no matter which house I download, and no matter if I wait, try again, re-check for all files, etc. I keep getting blue flashing doors! (I got blue flashing windows on another download.)

Might be a few things. Perhaps the door needs something that I don't have. No real problem. Unlike some house downloads, this didn't crash because of the temperamental doors ... just flashed. I replaced the doors with something else. I'll try to check the creator's page to see if the doors needed something ... a mesh, an EP ... something.

Oh, well. Even with different doors, your lots look fantastic! I like the "real" look of the rooms. They're just the right size for a starter house. Yet even my budget-conscious Simmies can enjoy a waterfront property. (Too bad one can't do this in real life. "Budget-conscious" and "waterfront" are two terms that usually don't go well together.) Thanks for uploading them!

Note .... Perhaps one might need the ORIGINAL MGM set for this to work; not only the add-ons. Because of the high-poly count and my groaning DL folder, I will probably stick with my "Kind of Georgian" substitutes, but those who might be having a similar problem might want to be aware of this.
