Two of my long term tenants are leaving Koala Beach, and it is sad because I don’t have a huge turn over with tenants, so I’m used to see the same people logging in and having random little chats with from time to time.
It also means I have two of my smaller rentals up for grab soon. The Bee house which I’ll probably renamed because it is one of my original parcels since the homestead and Liss has been living in it for about 10 months or more.
Then I have the Bora Bora house which I probably will also rename. It took me a while to find the perfect beach cabin for this parcel. I was unhappy with the previous which had only be rented a couple of times. As soon as I got this one set up, it was rented within a couple of days. I wish I could have re-textured the wall, but, oh, well, “modify” rights don’t mean much sometimes on Second Life.
Both houses will be furnished as always but you’re welcome to return any of the furniture. You’re allowed to rez a skybox, but since there is very little prims, it’s not recommended.
One year of Aussie Shores Estate is fast approaching and I’m excited. First, it has to be a time of celebration. Second, it amazes me when thinking back about how Koala Beach started and how it looks like now.
Technically, Koala Beach is over a year old as I started by renting a homestead from a rental estate. When Linden Lab announced prices going down for regions, it was the best time to cut off the middle man and get my own on the 13th of July 2018. I had three tenants at the time and they followed suit.
Over the pat year, Koala Beach and the rentals have changed many times. Some say (I wouldn’t dare pointing fingers at Kahlan …) I’m hard to please, but the fact was Koala Beach wasn’t aligned with my vision, and sometimes it is hard to get a vision out of your head.
Fortunately, I have amazing tenants and friends who have helped build a better region. It wasn’t easy and there’s still lots of work to be done – or I always find something to do, but Koala Beach has reached a point where I’m satisfied with it. A few months back, I wasn’t online much because it bugged me
This is one of my favorite small build made by bauwerk at 22769. I saw it when visiting a sim and loved it so much I had to get one. I was pleasantly surprised when I found it on MP for only 500L. Being a Rare gacha, I was expecting to have to pay much more. Mr T was the first one to rent that parcel. Although at the time he was after a small parcel, when I moved Koala Beach from the homestead to a full region, he requested a slightly bigger build. I was then left with the option to add the Fisherman’s shack somewhere else.
I found the perfect spot which is kinda below my house, but still remains as private is it can be, and away from the main areas, so it is a perfect retreat.
A new tenant came in and gave it a complete overall. She only rented to decorate the place, then left a few month later, leaving it decorated.
The only decor I removed was the remnants of Halloween, expecting the owner to come and clean it up, but she hasn’t. I usually return stuff if left, but she has done such an amazing job, I couldn’t do it.
The rental has approximately 400 prims once you remove all furniture. The build and landscape have to remain. A skybox is allowed. Rental price is 500L per week. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact me in-world or via email. I am more than happy to help (if I’m awake and close to my computer).

Love the privacy here, the confidence that I can relax in a peaceful environment
I found Koala Beach through friends! And everyone on the island has welcomed me as a friend, too. The quality of the furniture and landscaping is top-notch. Everything I needed was already right there. Very convenient! The owner is super-friendly and polite, and I always felt values as a member of the community. I love the privacy here, the confidence that I can relax in a peaceful environment while entertaining guests and friends.

Why would you recommend Koala Beach? Koala Beach is a great turnkey solution to have a superior home experience with the latest accommodations.
It looked intriguing on someones picks, so I flew over to check it out.
I have lived at Koala shores for a number of months now and really love the scenic setting. The landscaping is beautiful and the Australian theme adds to its charm. Having lived on other beach places previously, this has been my favorite, with great positioning of the houses and public spaces that are fun to use. I felt at right at home from the first day, with friendly Australian neighbors and Pris, who is around frequently and willing to help promptly. I love my house, feeling idyllically serene looking out onto the ocean.
Why would you recommend Koala Beach? Great setting and feels serene, without all the houses crowded together.
Beautiful; neighbours are super friendly & welcoming
The house that I had rented was well designed & you can see all the little details & thoughts put into it. It's not overly priced & it's a chilled spot where you can just have your own space & not be bothered by anything happening in the area. Pris is awesome, I had returned the entire house within hours of moving in (because I'm clumsy like that) & she returned it instantly even though our time difference is insane, (I'm from London, SL+8h). She also explained to me the ways of renting land etc since I was new to SL. What’s your favourite thing about Koala Beach? -everythingggg, the public space is awesome too - my friends that I have invited have all loved the scenery, layout etc. If there was anything you would change about Koala Beach, what would it be? -nothing! Why would you recommend Koala Beach? -helll yeaaaaaa! 100%
Having fun while doing business is possible.
Aussies Shores is a work in progress created by Australians with a touch of French background.
MY NAME IS...
Aussie Shores started with a small idea, that developed into something bigger. Mainly, I rented a homestead because I wanted all the prims to myself, then decided it was a boring idea, although I still wanted lots of prims … I've no intention of building a huge empire so that I can focus on a more personal approach, and have lots of fun. Quality over quantity. The plan is to have a few sims to represent different Aussie lifestyle aspects. Aussie Shores has become a big family of friends and I'm so grateful for the amazing people I've met so far and for the ones to come.
