Inexpensive lodging?

I'm trying to organize a pre-move visit to STT for early August. I'm not poor, but I'm not rich either, and of course I'd like to save the cash for the eventual move and investment in a local business. So I was wondering if anyone here in this forum can recommend some inexpensive (but safe) lodging. I will be traveling with my 16 year old daughter, and I'm looking for about a week to 10 days. I'm looking for something in or very near the Red Hook area, as that is where I believe my job skills can be used to the most advantage. Thanks for your help...

There's really not much around the Red Hook area but you could take a look at Two Sandals By The Sea which is a B&B a five minute drive from Red Hook in Estate Nazareth. A very nice area and the prices are reasonable.

I know someone with a condo in Sapphire Village; she uses it for vacation rentals but considering that your trip is off season I'm sure you can get a good rate. I stayed there for 4 days last October and it was perfect. Also like a 5 min drive from Red Hook. Contact info is at work but if I can find it, I'll post.

First place I'd look is VBRO. Since your coming in august you may be able to arrange a strong discount for studio condos. check out sapphire village & magen's point. Offer $900 for 10 days. See what shakes out.

Not close to Red Hook but 100% recommend Ronnie at The Crystal Palace - a valuable source if you are considering moving

I have stayed here - walking distance to Red Hook and very well kept , comfortable and clean lodging - affordable too. The Treetops units are the ones in Red Hook.

The Green Iguana is a great place to stay - not in Red Hook though. It's in downtown but you can catch the safari to Red Hook for a few dollars. It is where we lived for a week until we found an apt, very affordable. And the managers Gwen and John have so much knowledge of the island to help you out

Don't forget when calculating that the hotel tax is now 10%. A lot of websites are outdated and still list the old 8% rate.

Thanks for everyone's help, here and in the PM's. VRBO seems to be a good resource. Found some studios/1bedrooms for as low as $80/night in Sapphire Village. Anyone have any input on this location? I know Sapphire Beach is highly rated for snorkeling, which I need to do lots of! At those prices, I may even stay longer. Hoping the owners/managers respond quickly.

Sapphire is fine, especially for $80 a night. Don't expect 5 star. The stuidos are small. But, you will have a small kitchen and privacy. I would recommend a car. Make the best deal you can for a small compact.

Just so you know Sapphire Village is not "beach front", You'll need to walk down thru the complex's parking lots to access the beach. The complex has a pool. Sometimes securtiy is posted at the gate. Your 16 year old can walk alone down to beach or pool during the day. If you need to go on daytime intrviews or take care of business she will be fine at the complex. You may or may not have wi-fi in the unit. Bring books. (She shouldn't go alone later at night.) For your purposes, it's a smart choice.
