Owner's reply: Thank you for this lovely feedback, Rebecca, I’m so glad that you and your family enjoyed your stay at the Tropical Beach House! I do understand that the large veranda does have an impact on the lighting levels inside the house - particularly in comparison with the bright sunlight outdoors! However, I do have a plan to improve the situation with the installation of sliding glass doors at the front. Watch this space! I’m not sure that I will ever want to introduce AC into the living room, as well as the bedrooms, since my guests generally spend most of their time outdoors under the veranda and regularly pass through the house to pick up provisions from the kitchen. We look forward to seeing you or your friends again in the near future! :-) Take care, Gavin
