Safehouses return in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City. The main difference from the previous game (Grand Theft Auto III) is that the player has to pick up a pink floating cassette tape in order to save the game. At the beginning of the game, a suite at the Ocean View Hotel is automatically given to Tommy for free, but the player cannot save vehicles outside. The player has to purchase other properties for garages.
Safehouses can be bought by picking up a floating green house icon in front of a building for a price.
All safehouses are available to purchase from the beginning of the game. However due to a storm cutting off parts of the city, not all of them are immediately accessible. All safehouses are required to attain 100% completion of the game, costing a combined total of $41,500. In the mobile port, the prices for the safehouses are cut in half.
