The inventory is ~98% accurate. Oddly enough, the build "works" even without the custom baseplate! I had to add a few elements on top of a regular 32x32 plate to outline missing parts. The only other change is an alternative spiral staircase assembly.

This set no. 6416 'Poolside Paradise' (or 'Paradisa Palm Villa' outside of North America) came out in 1992 as part of the "Paradisa" theme's launch.

"Paradisa," with 18 sets released in 1992-'97, was one of LEGO's earliest product lines explicitly marketed at girls (5-12 years). Most notably, it was 100% LEGO System theme, with only standard bricks and minifigures. Every other LEGO collection "for girls," including the ongoing "Friends," had custom figures and accessories, sometimes entirely incompatible with "regular" Lego.

The theme substantially expanded LEGO System's palette, with new colors such as pink, dark pink, and lime green. Of course, "Paradisa" saw a barrage of female minifigs, with new torsos (pink tanktops, lace collars, necklaces) and three custom headpieces (thicker eyelashes, red lipstick, and freckles). A common Ponytail hairpiece (Part #6093) made its debut in "Paradisa," too.

The 'Poolside Paradise,' the third-largest "Paradisa" set, clocked at 211 parts and four minifigs. The model came with a one-of-a-kind 32x32 baseplate mold (literally, only ever used in this set), with a "sunken" blue swimming pool and stone-paved grey driveway. The build also features two Corner Convex panels that pretty much only ever came transparent as part of "Paradisa" sets.

Oddly enough, the cabriolet sports car is primarily black, which was, most certainly, not the typical "Paradisa" color! Every other vehicle across the theme would have a white chassis with pink accents.
