Looking to Rent / Borrow Pack N' Play or Crib

Hello,
I will be in St. Croix from Sept. 22 - Oct. 19th. I have a 14 month old and will need some kind of accommodation for her, ideally a pack n' play (with sheets?) as it is easiest. If we can't find a pack n' play I suppose a crib would work (and be more work in set up, break down and transport). Please let me know if you can help!
Also we will be in St. Thomas from Oct. 19 - Oct. 22nd and will be looking for the same accommodation for our 14th month old.
Thank you!

It would be best to buy a pack and play here or bring one with you unless where you are staying has them

this may sound crazy but try Dial Rent To Own. I've seen something like that in the STT store.

Ditto; it may be easiest to bring one with you. The little pack up play pens that double as beds are relatively inexpensive, can fit even some 3 year olds as a portable place to sleep, can be covered with mosquito netting, and, as baby equipment, can usually be checked as airline baggage with no cost.

But also, as suggested, it may be a good idea to check out K-Mart if possible.

Best,

i assume you checked with your property manager??? - many times they either retain (or suggest) the services of a baby gear rental service, or will rent it to you themselves...

best to you,

Thanks folks, I'll probably get one at kmart when I get there. Is kmart also the best place to get mosquito netting? Or can you get that some where else too?
