The house has high ceilings and is open plan. It will cost you a bomb to keep it cool, which will probably be impossible given it's openness. Or you can sit there in 30+ degree heat for 9 months of the year.
I lived there briefly, there was no issue with temperature. It's a very open building and well shaded. You have the mountains in front of you and a nice breeze.

There was a pool house as well for added shade while in the garden. Nice quiet ceiling fans evenly distributed that were all on count down timers so would not stand on all day even if you forgot to turn them off. Also AC in each bedroom which we used only at night.

I can't comment on the price but it was a really nice place :)

Might I ask why you chose to live here. Your post doesn't sound like you are brimming with enthusiasm.
Sunshine every day was a novelty when I first arrived, now it's just boring. You need cool cloudy days to appreciate the sunny ones which I why I like the rainy season. But the incessant heat is taking it's toll, plus a few other things I cannot tolerate on a long term basis. That's why I am looking to move on, once Covid is over.

People say that but if they ever go home to a nice cold crisp day they realise why they left in the first place!

Having just spent 5 months in NZ I'd agree with that.

Every year in the rainy season we have one or two periods with UK style weather. They usually last a week or so. Guess it's left overs from tropical storms from the Pacific.

Low ceilings, grey clouds, endless drizzling rain, temperatures dropping to low twenties (OK, not very UK-like). It starts as a relieve. The dust is washed out of the air, the air becomes fresher than ever.... But then.... Everything is wet, all's dripping, dust becomes mud, going out is difficult, mold becomes an issue. Sheer horror. You can't even burn your garbage which is a national pastime in the provinces at 5 PM (that's a plus for air quality though).

Next time we have one of those I will let you know so you can experience some of that weather and return on a sunny day in full appreciation.
