About The Game
Help create vacation homes for clients on all-new resort islands
Join Lottie’s Paradise Planning team and travel to a distant group of beautiful resort islands with a diverse set of landscapes. Choose from a variety of islands, with different terrain and climates and find one that matches your client’s vision. Then start designing and make their vacation dreams come true. Just wait until you see the look on your clients’ faces after you reveal the vacation home decorated just for them.
Add personalized touches to your client’s resort island
Customize everything from home exteriors and interiors, the yard and even customize the weather to either be sunny or rainy. Handpick the picture-book spot for your resort creation and use the Paradise Planning team’s expansive inventory to deck out vacation homes without being limited to your own inventory, recipes, or resources. The editing tools make decorating a snap! It’s a breeze to go back and redecorate as you like, so change and rearrange to your heart’s content.
As you design more vacation homes for your clients, facilities like a café and school will open up around the Paradise Planning office. Decorate these into inviting locales, choose roles for different characters, then watch your clients spend time together. Why not stop by and check in to see how things are going in paradise?
You can up your design game on your own island, too! Design options that you acquire while working as a Paradise Planning team member can be used on your island as they become available. Build partition walls and pillars, set the mood with lighting, and add soundscapes to both your residents’ homes as well as your own.
Share your masterpieces with friends
Take in-game photos of your designs and add them to your portfolio. Show them to other characters and you may get more requests to create vacation homes! Share the photos with other players using the in-game Showroom in the Happy Home Network app and they can tour your personally-designed resort islands or you can go tour theirs for some relaxation and inspiration.
