The Del Perro Beach in the GTA 5 game (based on real-life Santa Monica beach) has so special and unique residential buildings that I had to try to recreate few of them; on the other hand I needed them anyway, as well, in my Los Santos neighborhood. For GTA fans it's a heartwarming special place, too, since this is the location where the main story of the game begins.

All the Del Perro beach houses share the same characteristics: wide balconies with a view to the beach and the ocean; very narrow side-yards because the houses are very close to each other; outdoor stairs, especially spiral stairs, that connect the balconies of different floors; and their rear facade /back door is facing the freeway with the intense car traffic. In GTA 5 we can't see the interiors, only the exteriors, so it has been a challenge for me to find out, what is hiding behind the windows.

The blue house: mid-century modernism
Most of Del Perro houses has been built with the style of the modernism of 1950s-60s; most of them look just as old as well in the game, not in a very good condition. I tried to create a casual, relaxing, "we are on vacation"-type interior. It has 3 floors and I left the 3rd floor unfurnished, to give a free hand what you want to use the empty rooms for, nursery, hobby rooms, anything else.
Lot size: 20 x 20
Price furnished: 85,079
Price unfurnished: 52,126

The yellow house: Spanish colonial
It's not unusual at all in Los Santos that buildings use elements of Spanish colonial style. I chose this beach house to make a try with a bit of Spanish influence. It's big enough for a family with 2 or 3 children; I created a teen room on the 1st floor, and I left, again, the 3rd floor unfurnished for your decision what to use it for. It has a rooftop terrace, too, and thanks to the Island Paradise EP, sims can really sunbathe here if they want.
Lot size: 20 x 20
Price furnished: 106,328
Price unfurnished: 63,250

No CC and no store content are used on these lots; EPs needed: World Adventures, Late Night, Ambitions, Generations, Seasons, Showtime, University Life and Island Paradise. *Edit: User feedback: it works smoothly without Island Paradise, its few objects will be replaced by proxy ones.

Lot Size: 20x20
Lot Price (furnished): 106,328

Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file.
2. Select the .sims3pack file you got from extracting.
3. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
5. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Select the house icon, find the lot in the list, and tick the box next to it. Then press the Install button below the list.
6. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the lot to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
7. Run the game, and find your lot in Edit Town, in the premade lots bin.

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.
