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.

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
