And here are all of the entries, by Bungalow Number. Judging was by Exodio with input from Mrs. Salifax. Please note that a Bungalow is considered a one or two story building with a porch, and if a second story exists, it is typically a half-sized floor with an angled roof. I tried to be objective as well as appreciating the aesthetics of each entry in their own right. This was very difficult to judge but I had a great time doing it, and seeing what was built.

A functional and simple Bungalow that inspires a feel of rustic Island living. Capturing a barebones style, the detail on the exterior structure of this is great. This would be a great vacation stay for someone who wanted to feel the ocean breeze and put aside the complexity of modern life. Great designed Bungalow, with a half roof on the second floor and a porch to look out over the water from. No frills interior for the roughing it guest.
Overall Score: 8.3
Not an entry. Tiny Bungalow. Very cute.
Acting like Exodio will not get you extra points. Incomplete build is incomplete.
Overall Score: 1.0
An impressive edifice stretching up over the beach, this squared off three story home away from home is loaded with details and rooms. Points were deducted for not being a traditional Bungalow style, but this is a welcome addition to the Resort offerings. Featuring 3 bedrooms, a full kitchen, bathroom, living room and shower, one would be comfortable with all the amenities while visiting the Island.
Overall Score: 9.0
Another impressively built three story, this entry feels open and airy throughout. Focused around a back porch designed to sit and eat and sit some more, one could spend many evenings relaxing and listening to the included Parrot as the sun goes down. Open areas upstairs allow the kids and adults to relax together, and there are plenty of beds. Capped off with a third floor balcony, this is the lap of Island luxury.
Overall Score: 9.3
The next in the skyscraper district of Bungalows, this entry has an impressive start and is laid out very functionally inside. The first floor is well planned and has a dining area, sitting room and a small bookshelf. Upstairs feels unfinished though, with no decor to speak of in the bedroom or third floor. The designer is welcome to come back and take another crack at the inside once the contest grounds have been opened back up to the public!
Overall Score: 6.3
A cute Bungalow with a great color scheme, this entry has far more detail and room inside than what is suggested by the exterior! A great little breakfast area, rear boat launch, and a cozy upstairs gives a nice feel for the guest looking for a simple yet comfortable stay.
Overall Score: 9.0
Another smaller entry, the plain looking but interesting exterior hides a sweeping interior that is spacious and colorful. The back porch looks out over the water and is a great place to relax and enjoy the Island breeze. Lots of hangings make this feel like a true Island getaway.
Overall Score: 8.7
A great start, it looks like Froggo went the way of Uncle Salifax and forgot to finish his entry. Come back and finish up someday!
Overall Score: 3.3
Everything about this entry says "WOW". The colors, the choice of detail, the contrast, and especially the aquarium in the ceiling. A back porch to sit and enjoy, and grill out some fish, completes this one roomed Bungalow.
Overall Score: 9.7
This one has it all. Great jungle looking exterior with loads of details, a colorful interior to match, and tons of neat little details throughout. This is a fantastic show piece for the Resort, and the amount of thought put into this shows. A nice porch around the Bungalow, a great over the sea balcony with kitchenette and seats to enjoy the view from. Great experience overall for the discerning guest.
Overall Score: 10.0

This colorful entry is a lot of fun. Lots of little details pepper the Bungalow, from the kitchenette area and treat filled table to the little beach area on top of the roof. The sitting area downstairs is open and inviting, but not as open as the bedroom area upstairs. This would be a great place for a family with rugrats running around enjoying the mishmash of color and style!
Overall Score: 9.7
And open and rounded hut type Bungalow, this story and a half has the trimmings of an Island Paradise from the colorful carpets to the hangings to the open walls. A quick climb up and around the back ladder lets one enjoy the ocean breeze from the straw topped roof.
Overall Score: 9.3
This Bungalow could belong to Peter Pan and the Lost Boys. Full of leaves and decorative hangings, this simple dwelling would be a great place for a rugged outdoors type looking to experience all the joys of the open Island air.
Overall Score: 8.7
