The Abandoned Bungalows are located in the deep ocean south of Vice City. The location itself consists of three medium-sized stilt houses, with one of them being destroyed. The area is unusual, and players investigating it have had a myriad of sightings related to the sea monsters of Vice City, such as the Megalodon Shark and the Sea Monster. The bungalows themselves are located not too far away from the sunken Libertine Lines cargo ship. What caused the third bungalow to be destroyed is unknown, but it could possibly have been a sea creature. However, it may have been just a design choice by Rockstar, as the area also serves as a unique stunt jump and hidden package location.
Ironically, they are based on a group of wood stilt houses located one mile south of Cape Florida on sandbanks of the Safety Valve, on the edge of Biscayne Bay in Miami-Dade County, Florida, known as Stiltsville. Surprisingly, the location is also interlinked with local folk tales and supernatural sightings. They were destroyed by violent hurricanes throughout their history.
