I found the rental agent quite charming though there was a bit of a language barrier.
I was just going to see the island and didn’t speak the local tongue.
The lady spoke a bit of English and managed to rent me a little bungalow on the beach for a few afternoons. My hotel had been closed down indefinitely rendering our reservations useless. I was lucky to get any arena on such short notice. The structure was on the edge of the sand, a hundred meters from the water. It had electricity, but shockingly came without a cooling system. Call me a correct entitled American, however I just assumed any rental locale I paid money for would come with a cooling system. I was pretty steamed about a lack of cooling, but it occured to me with the money I had saved from the hotel reservations, I’d just buy a small cooling component for the arena. It turns out that a local hardware store sold a small, portable cooling unit, just enough to cool down a room at a time. It cost me a few hundred bucks, but that was actually the best money I ever spent, because that cooling component was the best, and as our trip winded up, I saw it fit to leave the cooling system in the rental home for the next people to use. It was really small plus portable, although I still didn’t want to fuss with carrying a cooling component onto an airplane. My hope was the next renters value the unit.
