    There is a fireplace heater that is sufficient to keep you warm. We did not notice an A/C but felt like we did not need it because the cottage is very cool and the plants and trees act as canopy against the sun's heat.

    Aloha, Yes, the temperature in the outdoor shower has been monitored and adjusted since those occasional concerns were mentioned.
