Rental lots are special lots where Sims can not live in, but can rent and go for a vacation for 1–7 days. While on a vacation, rental lots can not be accessed in build mode without using the bb.enablefreebuildcheat and are only available in the aforementioned vacation worlds. There are five rental lots in the campground neighborhood of Granite Falls and four in the Puerto Llamante Marketplace and Belomisia Jungle neighborhoods of Selvadorada, with each of them having a different cost of Simoleons per day. The daily cost to rent a rental lot is directly dependent on the total value of the lot - the more expensive the lot, the more it costs to rent per day.
Rental lots are very similar to residential lots in many ways, but there are some differences between the two. Sims can use any facilities such as showers, stoves, computers, etc., to their own extent. Sims can also call for some services such as pizza delivery, maids and repairmen, but some services such as nannies and adoption will not work. Massages[TS4:SD] will also only work if the required objects are present on the rental lot, which have to be manually added by the player in build mode. In The Sims 4: Parenthood, Sims can freely volunteer with other household members on a rental lot. And while Sims cannot "live" in rental lots, they can technically reside there forever if the player keeps extending the vacation time indefinitely. However, this requires a constant income of money in large amounts. There is also no penalty for doing so. Sims can stop their vacation on a rental lot and return to their home world at any point in time.
Like with residential lots, rental lots do not have any special requirements to make them work properly.
Campground is the only lot in the campground neighborhood specifically made for camping. It includes a picnic table with a grill, a horseshoe pit and a campfire. However, the campfire does not include any chairs, so the player has to bring their own or buy one from a ranger station. It is the only lot that does not have any sleeping related objects, or a bathroom. Luckily, however, a toilet stall is located very close to this lot. It is also the cheapest lot in the neighborhood.
Lakeside Retreat is the most expensive rental lot in the campground neighborhood, both in lot value and cost of rent. It is a two-story building with four bedrooms, all having somewhat expensive beds, and three bathrooms with moderate toilets and showers. The house has a huge open kitchen and living room, with a fireplace and a small radio. A small terrace is also located on the first floor and a big terrace on the second floor. In the backyard, there is a horseshoe pit and a campfire for Sims to tell stories and roast marshmallows or hot dogs. The only electronic objects in the house are two radios, one located in one of the bedrooms with the other one in the living room, which seemingly prompts the player to have other ways to entertain their Sims.
Forest Hideaway is a big and the second most expensive lot in the campground neighborhood. It includes two bedrooms with quite uncomfortable beds and two bathrooms. A big open kitchen and living room is located downstairs, with a fireplace and a cheap television. A small terrace located upstairs also includes a game table, while a terrace downstairs has a small table and a portable cooler. The backyard includes a horseshoe pit, a barbecue and a campfire.
Riverside Retreat is a small one-story house designed for at most two Sims. It features one bedroom and one bathroom. There is also an open kitchen and a living room, with a small cheap television and a cheap fridge. The kitchen does not include any stoves, so Sims have to cook their food by using either a barbecue located in front of the house or the campfire in the backyard. Outside there is also a horseshoe pit and an outdoor shower, alongside a game table and a portable cooler in the front porch.
Green Getaway is another small one-story house also designed for at most two Sims. It is basically a more expensive version of Riverside Retreat, as it includes pretty much the same features: one bedroom and one bathroom with an open kitchen and living room, that include a cheap television and a cheap fridge. There are also no stoves either, which forces Sims to cook by using a barbecue or a campfire, both of which are located outside. The backyard also includes a horseshoe pit and a portable cooler, while a game table can be found on the front porch. However, unlike in Riverside Retreat, Sims do not have to shower outside and can use a bathtub located inside.
