After years of running a successful medieval-themed resort in Dragon Valley, Isla Paradiso-born Mahina and Kamani began to miss the sandy beaches and laid-back coastal vibe they’d loved as kids. But, rather than return to their original town, they decided to try somewhere new. When Kamani’s little sister Kina called to tell him all about the wonderful time she was having in her new home of Barnacle Bay, they knew they’d found the place.
Mahina couldn’t be happier. She loves spending time outdoors, harvesting tasty produce from the community garden right next to their new home, swimming in the sea, and meeting new people. The sale of the resort brought in a tidy sum, and money’s certainly not tight, but Mahina still likes to keep herself busy by painting and selling her creations to local galleries.
Kamani’s also having a great time. The food at the Dragon Valley resort had become world-renowned thanks to his culinary expertise, and he had no trouble landing the top position at one of Barnacle Bay’s five-star restaurants. In his spare time, he likes to go for walks with his family or head down to the local art center to work on his sculpting.
Mahina and Kamani’s son Akoni is very excited about his new home too. He saw a boat out on the sea one day and has decided he wants to be a sailor when he grows up.
Shortly after the move, the family has adopted a beautiful golden retriever called Nani. Kamani always wanted a dog, but his seven day work week in at the resort Dragon Valley meant he never had the time before. Nani is playful, loyal, and well-behaved. She enjoys swimming and hunting. All credit for Nani’s appearance goes to LittleV, who kindly gave me permission to include her pets with my households. Here is the link to the original dog of hers I used if you don’t plan to download this family but would still like a CAS version of her.
Mahina, Kamani, Akoni, and Nani live at 436 Tidal Terrace in a house called Tidal Retreat.
The kitchen has big windows that allow Kamani to enjoy a lovely sea view while he’s cooking.

Overview of the ground floor.
The master bedroom is located upstairs on the first floor. It has a little balcony with a view of the sea.
On either side of the master bedroom, you’ll find its en suite bathroom and Akoni’s nursery. The nursery is uncluttered because toddlers tend to need a lot of floor space. There is room to teach walking and talking and to play with toys from the chest, but you may have to direct him manually to the middle of the room first or sometimes he’ll try to go downstairs.
The garage has been converted into a multi-purpose space, featuring a painting area and plant room for Mahina, a place for Nani’s food bowl and toys, an additional bathroom, and a single bedroom for Akoni to use when he grows up into a child.

What really sold the family on the house was the relaxing outdoor pool area connecting the main house to the converted garage. Mahina and Nani both love to swim in the pool, and the view from the loungers is really wonderful, particularly at sunrise.
