Best family friendly areas to live on St Thomas .
We are planning a move to St Thomas next summer with our two sons, 17 and 11. (Our original landing spot was Cane Garden Bay on Tortola, but for business reasons, we are making a switch. This means starting over in the info gathering department.) What areas/neighborhoods are most desirable? The boys will most likely go to Antilles, if that helps narrow the things down a bit.
Thanks so much,
Probably cowpet bay, anchorage, east end locations near yacht club.
You can also check Montessori school for your youngest. You really don't want to be driving from north side to Antilles, twice a day, plus back and forth to work. Too much commuting.
We don't have neighborhoods like in the states.
If you live on south side of island, Frenchman bay, you'll be closer to Antilles school but I find it pretty hot. Depends on the property tho and your budget.
Best thing to do is decide where kids will go to school and where you'll be working, then decide on a convenient commuting location that suits your needs.
When do you plan to move?
The whole question of "desirable" neighborhoods and areas is virtually impossible to answer and, as Alana said, best advice is to fix on the school and the work location and go from there. If you're not familiar with the island, best to work with a local realtor. Are you planning on a PMV (pre move visit)?
