Get down to business and choose your villager as a client

Go to the office and tell Lottie you’re ready to go. In our case, it was at the start of the DLC content, so we were told to go to the beach and find a client.

When we went out, our favorite boyfriend, Paolo, was relaxing on the beach. We just followed the step of talking to him, of registering him as a client. You then go through the standard process: there’s a room type meeting, you pick a destination island, and off you go!

Be creative and make a perfect vacation home

The following is the standard format for the DLC. You visit the site and design the house, interior and exterior, according to their requirements.

In our case, snack-lover Paolo wanted a professional-style kitchen, so we fitted it out with the ‘recommended’ furniture, including a dining area. Yes, you can probably do something a little more elegant!

Once you’re done with the job, you return to the office, get paid and voila, your islander has the vacation home of their dreams! You also don’t have to worry about finding them for the flight home, they seem to be coming back on their own.
