If it seems a bit familiar, it's because I got lazy...(sort of). This is actually a near perfect copy of my Base Game lot "Palm Vallarta" that I re-built on a beach lot. It really should have been a beach lot to begin with, but unfortunately, I didn't get BV until just recently so it had to wait.
Once I had copied it 100% perfectly, then I set about making it fit the beach environment better. The original color was an off-white but the beach sand made it almost invisible. I needed a color that worked well with both sand and grass. "Coral Pink" looked great from the sea, but looked terrible from the road. I ended up trying about 50 different colors (including some really nice CC) but ended with regular old Maxis Stucco...go figure.
This only CC here is the sea monsters and dinosaur (lot deco) from MTS (I think?) and a couple cars. The blue one is the car I always thought the owner of real-life house like this would drive...my own personal dream car, a 1966 Lamborghini Muira. As luck would have it, I found it over at FreshPrince's site a few nights ago. Cool!!!! Once I had the car, I just had to do this lot, properly, and on a beach.
