I took our family on a week long tropical getaway during the month of January, all of us wanted to be in close proximity to the beach. Unfortunately, accommodations that are very close to the ocean are extremely high-priced. I couldn’t afford a luxury resort with all of the amenities. After a whole bunch of research, I found a home in a great location that was within our price range. Since the majority of us planned to spend our time on the beach, I wasn’t worried with luxury sleeping arrangements. The home was a particularly slim fit for a family of more than four. With the couch pulled out into a bed, we barely had room to open all of our suitcases at the same time. The mini coffee pot and oven didn’t work, and the refrigerator wasn’t particularly cold. There was a limited supply of hot water for showering, and the pipes made loud rattling sounds all night long. However, we were all very thankful that the air conditioner unit worked and kept the tiny home nice and cool. The air system was really outdated, yet still put out a tremendous amount of cool air. It gave only a couple of options, on or off, and there was no ability to regulate the temperature. The air conditioning system was permanently installed into an exterior wall, and set close to the floor. The temperature near the floor was far colder than near the ceiling. Our feet were constantly super cold, while our heads felt much warmer. Despite the lack of luxury in our condo, our family had a great trip.
