Mini Topal Hideaway, a Vacation Paradise for the Budget-Minded Adventurer! (Stay Moist Mansion)

Recently, I wanted to try to create a tropical paradise on a plot without any natural water in it at all, for fun and the challenge of it, and then later for a DDA Guild Challenge as well. Thus the "Mini" Topal Hideaway was born! A vacation paradise for the budget-minded adventurer, complete with an elevated pool deck; protected coral reef lagoon; two stretches of white sand beach; a red rock beach; and a living/kitchen cabana, bathroom cabana, and two separate bedroom cabanas perched on the steep sides of the dormant volcanic island! (Brought to you at Stay Moist Mansion, enabled by the Essential Housing Tools addon by @R_K ).

Upon first entering the plot, visitors arrive underwater, inside the coral reef lagoon:

After swimming to the surface, visitors are treated to their first sight of the island's white sand beaches, shaded cabana's, colorful vegetation, and rich tidal pools. From the lagoon, there is also access to the island's wild, red sand beach:

Following the sandy path down the beach leads to the beginning of the access path to the island's accommodations. The first amenity accessible by the path is the island's pool deck and outdoor living space:

Next, vacationers will pass the first of two bedrooms, which overlooks the secluded east beach and bleached coral falls:

Continuing down the volcanic path leads to the centralized kitchen/living cabana, with attached bathroom:

At the end of the path, visitors will find the second bedroom, a two-room suite and balcony overlooking the coral lagoon, western beach, and boat dock:
