My husband plus I run a small corporation of renting beachside bungalows to tourists.
It is seasonal work, as you might imagine, with 6 months of heavy corporation followed by many months of almost no corporation at allâ€¦ During the stressed season we both stay booked always. My husband handles the bookings plus the paperwork, while I am the handyman plus make sure all of our properties stay in tip-top condition. Last summer time was our sixth year in business, plus our busiest season to date! There were a lot of troubles, though, including a rash of a/c thefts that cost us a lot of currency. You think how in major hotels the rooms all have big a/cs built right into the walls? Those are genuinely luxurious, however worth it because they are the best for cooling down a small space, plus they are almost impossible to steal. In our beachside bungalows the walls are too thin, plus the power grid too weak, to support all of those Heating plus A/C units. Instead we use the small, portable a/cs that you can mount in a window using easy brackets. These are low in cost plus supply adequate cooling for the guests, so everybody wins! Recently we l earned the major negative of these air conditioning system units, that being how small they are makes them genuinely straight-forward to steal. It is not our guests stealing the a/cs, of course, it is people stealing the units from the outside. Being mounted in the window sill means that the a/cs are exposed to the outside, plus straight-forward to rip off the brackets.
