In this guide, we'll be showing you all GTA Vice City Safehouses, when and where to get them and what benefits each of them offers

On your journey to finishing Grand Theft Auto Vice City, you’ll need safehouses to get a 100% completion of the game. In this guide, we’ll be showing you where to find all the safehouses in GTA Vice City.

GTA Vice City Safehouses

Safehouses in GTA Vice City, as the name implies, provide a safe space with a variety of features. Some safehouses can provide weapons, while others have outfit icons. A few safehouses will have free weapons you can pick up.

However, in order to save your game in GTA VC, a player must pick a pink cassette tape. There are a total of nine safehouses located throughout Vice City. As you progress through the story, new safehouses will become available.

Each safehouse in GTA Vice City Definitive Edition has its own unique set of features and conditions for unlocking. A safehouse can be purchased by picking the floating greenhouse icon in front of a building.

A list of all safehouses in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City is included below, along with information on how to unlock them.

Safehouse # 1 – Ocean View Hotel

It is located on Ocean Beach in GTAVC. The Ocean View Hotel is the first safehouse you’ll come across at the start of the game, and the player is automatically given a suite there for free.

The drawback of this safehouse is that it lacks garage capacity of its own, which means that vehicles cannot be parked outside the Ocean View Hotel. You’ll need to purchase separate property for garages if you want to park.

Various weapons can be obtained by collecting Hidden Packages along the corridor and within the hotel suite. These include:

  • Body Armor x10 Packages
  • Chainsaw x20 Packages
  • Colt Python x30 Packages
  • Flamethrower x40 Packages
  • PSG-1 laser scope sniper rifle x50 Packages
  • Minigun x60 Packages
  • Rocket launcher x70 Packages

Safehouse # 2 – Vercetti Estate

Vercetti Estate is the GTA Vice City’s second safehouse, located on Starfish Island. It is completely free, but in order to access it, you must first complete the Rub Out Mission. In contrast to the Ocean View Hotel, it has a garage that can accommodate two vehicles.

Ricardo’s office/Tommy’s room is located on the second floor of Vercetti Estate. When the game is completed, a Frankie shirt will be available in the room.

A modest subterranean room is the armory of the Mansion which houses Health, Body Armor, a Pump Action Shotgun, and an M4.

The mansion’s roof has a Maverick perched above a helipad. There are additional explosive barrels strewn throughout the lowest level of the roof.

Safehouse # 3 – 3321 Vice Point

3321 Vice Point is a safehouse located at the Vice Point. It is available after the beginning of the game. However, you’ll have to buy it for $2500.  The 3321 Vice Point doesn’t have any garage capacity.

On the east side of the safehouse, a random road vehicle will spawn. This house can be purchased in GTA VC to facilitate shop thefts.

Safehouse # 4 – Links View Apartment

Links View Apartment is another safehouse in the Vice Point neighborhood in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City. You can purchase it for $6,000 after the beginning of the storyline. This safehouse has a single-vehicle garage.

1102 Washington Street is a safehouse found at Washington Beach. After the beginning of the storyline in GTA Vice City, you’ll have to spend $3,000 to gain access to this safehouse.
