It is, but I've been in at least one west facing lanai home where there is practically no shade in the late afternoon.

Our large lanai faces west-northwest, so the sun goes directly into our house late in the afternoon during the summer.

We have shades just inside the screen on our lanai, so when the sun is a problem, we lower the shades. The shades cost $3K and they are well worth it.

We don't have shades over the screen in the lanai. We have vertical blinds on the windows and the sliding door that line the back of the house which faces north west. The sun never streams into the house from the lanai because the lanai roof blocks the sun. We tilt the vertical blinds when the sun streams into the back of the house which is not protected by the lanai roof.

I would like some opinions on how much of a negative this will be and can this be minimized by screening and shading to block out the sun. If you have a west facing lanai, please let me know if this is a serious problem.
Homes are square. One side of your home will face each of the four directions. Our home front is east, so we see the sunrise at breakfast. The lanai, on the back is out of the sun till the afternoon.

I lived on a private country club golf course for 13 years and would never do it again, there is absolutely no privacy on your lanai if there is a cart path in front of it, even worse if the tee box is near. People would actually walk over to our deck and ask if I could give them a beer, throwing trash on the ground that would end up in our yard, constant foul language and even urinating on the tee area, more than once I called the police for that dirty trick. After 13 years I had enough. A west facing lanai is nothing compared to living on a golf course.
