Hello, I am 25 year old male living in Colorado, and am really pursuing a change of scenery and peace of mind. My fiancee recently passed away and i cant stand all the memories walking around this town. I am really trying to find people who have done this same thing and moved there to start over and be happy again. I am a hard worker and do not care what kind of job i get. Although I am a professional golfer and know the business side very well and would think i could eventually get on at a course. I know there are many people my age that move there and work serving and hotel jobs but i want to know how they got in and what were the steps they took to finding living quarters. If its renting a 1 bedroom or some jobs have quarters or finding a place with a random. I have done a ton of research on the island and cost and all that and i live very easy so i am not too concerned on the expenses i know i will do what it takes to survive if that means 2 jobs. So i guess I am asking for help on people to contact or how people my age have gone out and made this move happen. So i would greatly appreciate any info from people that have done my same thing or not i really would love contacts and info thanks a bunch!
do you have an island in mind
stt is the busier of the islands stx is the more laid back
make sure you read the posts on here too, they are a wealth of information
there are two main golf courses on stx, the carambola and the buccaneer
I havent fully commited to either one yet. I am trying to get in contact with the pro at buccaneer currently. I guess what would prbly make me decide on an island is where it would be easier for me to find somewhere to live. I really do not have a preferance on either one i will take it for what it is and love it no matter what. Or which one is more fun during hurricane season 🙂 jk
we get hurricanes. i was not here during hugo but i know plenty of people who were. some places on island did not have power for up to 8 months. no cable for some for even longer. i have only been through one , omar, we got our power back the next day with minimal damage. a few leaks and stuff like that. we were lucky others were without power for a month or more.
a young person might have more fun on stt. i have visited stt but i like it here better than there.
just do a lot of reading on here and ask more questions
I'm not necessarily looking for just fun i want tranquility and happiness, and the reason i brought up hurricanes is i have an atmospheric science degree and focused on hurricanes. Right now i need help with linking to how other people in my situation have done it and what steps they took and how they found their living and job situations?!
