    i have no problem with lukewarm showers for a few times, but i do like to be "almost scaled" every now and again

    when we stay at bananas apartments we take our showers late afternoon.
    the water is comfortably almost hot.

    Coming back to Toronto, I always get a brain freeze when I first drink the tap water.

    I think I would be okay with that since I use just past cold when I shower while in Aruba ( even at home my water would chase out a normal person), but if you are renting a place you would think the renters would supply some sort of heater for your water.....so not to go too far off the subject, but I wonder now if the on-the-water villas in Savaneta have water heaters...??
    Good luck with finding a solution to your hot water problem...let us know how you solved (or not) it !!!!!

    Well... turns out boiling a pot of water for every shower isn't so bad after all compared to freezing in the shower!

    Can't you bathe in the pool or the ocean? When we stayed at the Ren Marina one time, the pool water was about 95 degrees, it was like swimming in chlorinated sweat. Just use a soap that doesn't lather up so you don't draw attention

    It's more like taking a bath standing up and using heated water out of buckets. Not the easiest and you have to be quick so the water stays warm during your "bath". Would recommend getting a portable shower head to make it easier.
