The natives set up this nice house on a private stretch of beach as a guest house for castaways and a getaway for stressed-out tribe members. It's one of the best places around to slow down and enjoy the peace of island life.

The Village Residence is a residential lot on Felicity Island in The Sims Castaway Stories and eventually becomes the "final" home of the main character and their new spouse in Shipwrecked and Single. The hut itself is a long walk from the lot entrance and consists of a completely walled in kitchen/living room with dining on an uncovered deck overlooking an inlet from the sea. Following the deck inwards and down a flight of stairs you come to another hut in which contains a bedroom/bathroom suite. The player's raft constructed earlier in the game will remain in the lot and can be used to travel to isolated places such as The Volcano Shores.

Although Fangaloka Manave proclaims it "their best hut", it is initially rather small and definitely not constructed with a couple in mind. However, it is the largest residential lot in the game and after the story ends you can modify it to your heart's content.

The hut's design can become a problem since it's only constructed with arches, thus townies and NPCs can walk in the house and interact with its Sims and objects even when not greeted or invited, and can stay for days and only leave by asking them to leave or saying goodbye, which bothers some players, so replacing the arches with doors is recommended. Also it's furnished with cheap furnishings and are not enough for two newly married Sims, since for example the bed is enough for only one person and when tried to be replaced the size of the room has to be expanded.
