I slogged round Second Life yesterday trying to find a rental home to share with you – did I find one? NOPE – ohmymdays why don’t landlords have an office or at least a board showing what they have vacant? I landed in the sea, in peoples homes, on abandoned land but most often just dumped on a sim with no information to guide me to their rentals. It was soul destroying honestly. I was a landlord for eight years, I had an office with up to date boards showing what I had on offer, its not hard to do !

So I wondered if any of our readers were currently renting a home that they felt was good value or stylish etc. If you do drop me a notecard with a link to the rental office and I can scope it out to share ❤

Free & Low Land impact home

Lamp Light FREE skybox

I found this sweet sky home on the market place by Lamp Light. It comes in lovely pale pink tones but is also modify so you could alter that. Primarily there are four rooms, living room, kitchenette style area, bedroom and bathroom.

It also has two stylish round porthole shaped windows with blue sky  clouds – really adds the wow factor. A faux curtain boxes off the bedroom to the bathroom – but really its up to you to utilise the space. Unbelievably only 18Li. You can buy this on the market place for $5L or head to the main store to get it for free – no group join required. Its packaged up and sat on the shelving along with quite a few other gifts.

He’s Back !

So excited to see that Jacob Brenner of Imegica has started making new builds!! I was such a huge fan of his work years ago – so new stuff has made my day. The new LoftFive caught my eye, its just 5Li ! Fantastic texturing gives it a modern vibe. With its huge wood and glass feature window there is plenty of light, there is also a small tiled open plan area that would lend itself to a kitchen or bathroom. Grab a free demo, its a timed demo and you get plenty of time to scope it all out before it goes POOF! (The price is very reasonable @ $349L)

While you are grabbing up demos of the new builds, collect this sweet gift too. Heart wall tile, truly so sweet and just 3Li.

Renting a home in Second Life – $17L per week !

I had a notecard from a lovely lady yesterday – thanking me for showing rental homes – it was super lovely to hear that it had been of help ❤

It made me realise I hadn’t done a rental blog for a while and I think I got ever so lucky today. I found Chasing Dawn Homes – apparently they’ve been renting homes since 2011 – and Id never come across them till today! Basically they have several sets of these $17L per week apartments, each is themed and housed inside a well made location. Above is the marina, moving water, sounds outside, ever so pretty.

I really loved the rainy location (as I live in the UK and I’m used to rain) As I couldn’t find any vacancies I sort of spied through the windows – you get a bed, couch etc (good makes) everything you need to call home.

This is the main office. If you look at where I’m stood, there is a board to register your interest in a home , so you will be alerted of vacancies. To the right of that are the teleporters to take you to each apartment themed area. There are other homes at very inexpensive prices so take a peek at those too.

All you can see – $99L PROMO

Im always stalking the Inverse store on the market place – awaiting their latest intro offer on their newest homes. This one is called “Porto” and I really like it. You’ll need to hurry if you want it as they are pretty fast shelving the offer and then its full price – I got this yesterday and its just a 48 hour thing! You get three versions, unfurnished, furnished with shadows, furnished without shadows. (full furnished with shadows (262 LI) – full furnished without shadows (262 LI) – unfurnished (143 LI)) I like to catch them on a promo then sift through the furniture and grab what I like for my own home – yes I am a scavenger. The build is lovely and as usual most of the furnishings come with menus with adult and PG animations. I wont write any more but the link is below so you can read all about it and grab it while you can.

Renting a home in Second Life – Don’t overlook this !

Decided to look around at the rental homes that are on offer. It never ceases to amaze me how poorly some rental areas are set up ! I landed in water, on deserted beaches and of course – in homes that got me ejected back to my own home *sigh*. If you’re a landlord in Second Life – please please make sure that prospective tenants  land some where even near your office ! Sooo after discounting any that didn’t take me to their rental boards – I landed at Pixel Eye. Right outside the rental office (hurrah!) with easy to read rental boards (hooray). Now you’d be forgiven for thinking you’d landed at a ballroom – as right in the centre of this area is a rather bright gold ballroom. I’m not entirely sure if I like that – BUT – if you can overlook the gold’ness of it all , around the outside are some pretty cool rental homes.

I plumped for this teeny tiny fully furnished cabin , you might recognise the maker as DRD . I was feeling lazy and this one came fully furnished with an additional 100 prims.  Most of the homes were $100L per week with 100 prims, some are a lot bigger than this so take your time and wander around.

I know I would be able to furnished them with the 100 prim allowance and it appeared to be pretty lag free and quiet – if a little lacking in privacy as most were quite close to one another. I suppose it all depends on what you’re looking for really, this might be a good place to socialise with the ballroom being so close. Unless it gets very busy and laggy, Id be able to overlook the ballroom build and the closeness of the other properties for such a reasonable price. I had one small request about moving the rent box and it was dealt with fairly quickly – always a good sign!

Crawl back into your Cave (Free)

I love a home, but even more I love a free unusual home ! Spotted this cave home by Felix for free on the market place. Its deceptively gorgeous and Id actually use it as a home or perhaps a retreat to retire too. The interior is rough stone with nooks and crannies that would suit decorating and adding some cosy touches. Amazingly its only 8Li (that includes the door which is scripted) I plonked it on the hill beside Zans home and it just sort of blended right in.
