The rental agent was really nice.
There was a bit of a language barrier, because we were just visiting the island and didn’t speak the local tongue.
She spoke a bit of English, however, so we were able to rent a little bungalow on the beach for a few days. Our hotel had been closed down for some reason, our reservations now worthless, so we were lucky to get any place on such short notice. The bungalow was on the edge of the sand, a hundred meters from the water. It had electricity, but we were shocked to find there was no air conditioning. Call me a typical entitled American, but I just assumed any rental place I paid money for would come with air conditioning. I was pretty steamed about a lack of cooling, but my husband pointed out that with the money we had saved from the hotel reservations, we could just buy a small AC unit for the place. It turns out that a local hardware store sold a small, portable air conditioner, just enough to cool down one room at a time. It cost two hundred bucks, and I have to say it was the best two hundred bucks I ever spent, because that cooling was invaluable. When our trip was over, we decided to leave the air conditioner in the rental house for the next people to use. It was very small and portable, but we still didn’t want to fuss with carrying an air conditioner onto an airplane! Hopefully the next renters appreciate our gift.
