Moving for the summer

May 03, 2006 06:33PM

Hello everyone,
I'm also thinking of moving to one of the U.S Virgin Islands for June, July and August. Any suggestions about the best way to find an afforadable place to rent.....and is it okay to deal with job hunting once I get there? I'd appreciate any advice.....there's a lot to think about, but I totally want to do this!!! Thanks

The Island Trader is the best way to find an apartment. Many people on island will not rent to you until you are on island. But some will, so give it a shot.

go to the VI Daily News Site


Then click on the Island Trader Link under special supplements.

If you have no luck with the island trader, try talking to ronnie on this site, he has longer short term rentals available at


he always seems to help alot of the newbies.

Also try rochelle ellicks place, she is a sweet lady.


Good Luck, and please do tons of research before you make the big move. Try to read the entire message board, it will be your best resource.
