I was checking out some old LMs for a place to take some pictures and I stumbled on this absolutely simple and yet stunning rental sim.
The sim is called Baja Norte and it’s a blogger, moocher, beach lover, renters delight. I haven’t rented a property here because for a small fee of 250Lds you can join the Baja Norte group and not only use the stunning decor items but also rezz your own props and poses if you feel the need to. It would be good to join as the fee which is a one off helps towards this great sim but it’s not compulsory as you are free to use the facilities even if you’re not a group member.
Obviously it goes without saying if you do decide to join the group so you can rezz poses and props to watch the prims! and OMG clean up after yourself! Faith and I used to run a very successful and enjoyable rental sim but the cleaning up of other people’s prims was a pain in the bum.
Although there is more than enough places for people just to sit and chat and chill and so you may never need or want to rezz anything.
I had a mooch around the homes the note that is sent out does ask you not to enter a rented property which goes without saying but there are some vacancies esp the ones on the top of the hill. At 250 a week these are bargain prices homes and although you only get 50Prims you will just not need them at all. The whole sim is your playground and all you need is a few prims for some personal items.
Now I’m not a 100% sure if all of the homes come furnished already I’m pretty sure this was one of the Vacant homes and this is the standard to expect, it’s all quality items. I’ll be back and I’ll have a recheck.
All these photos were taken in the sims own Windlight setting which is subtle moody and beachy at the same time, you of course can use whatever setting you want.
As I said the reason I’m not going to rent a home here is because I’m going to join the Baja Norte group and now since our own sim is very much Autumnal and grassy I have somewhere to flash the flesh and surf. This is a busy sim with plenty of people wandering, sitting and probably mugging for the camera and yet it is so quiet and people are just having a relaxing and fun time. I sat on a log with my new log and even though there was 2 male AVs near to me we just sat and did our own thing. If I didn’t rent my own sim I’d move here and I know fine well Faith would also in a heartbeat.
Must mention the brilliant person behind all of this because she won’t be making money from the rentals here as she’s asking for so little so basically she’s done this just for the joy of giving to people in SL. Lauren Bentham is her name and her surname might be familiar to a lot of people because she’s the owner of Bentham Manor and more. I can’t believe that high is the sky is a packed shop/forest/woodland/build of spooky and ethereal items to buy for your home although most things are set out in a themed setting ie a spooky woodland most of what you see is for sale but check out her Flickr link as a picture shows you much better than I can write.
