Having problems with the A/C appliance at the beach

The central AC was too far gone to be repaired so the owner had several portable units in the dwelling for us to use

We had never gone this far south in the past before, however we heard the beaches were stunning, so we took a chance! We leaped in the car, and researched our destination through Google over the course of the 6 hour drive. I prefer smart cellphones! We were able to scout the town, book an Air BnB, make supper reservations, and figure out which beaches we wanted to visit the most. We also checked the weather report, which didn’t look promising, however we hoped for the best. The dwelling we rented wasn’t exactly the beachfront view it promised, and it was ancient and creaky, too. We got inside and it was so muggy I went directly for the control unit. Much to my chagrin, the central AC was legitimately unresponsive, and from the looks of the dust on it, it had been broken for a fairly long time. I called up the owner and asked why it wasn’t stated that this place had no cooling, which would have been a deal breaker for us renting it in the first place. The owner told myself and others to simply calm down, and to look in the front closet where I was able to locate a portable air conditioner appliance approximately the size of a suitcase. The central AC was too far gone to be repaired so the owner had several portable units in the dwelling for us to use. This was not ideal, because a single one of these units is easily only powerful enough for cooling down a single room. It’s sort of a hassle, however it’s better than no air conditioner appliance at all, so we had to make it work.
