Well it took almost a half of year, but we finally made it to STX. The island is every bit as beautiful as we hoped. Have found a place to stay for the time being, but looking for some place permanent.
Looking for a fully furnished 3 bedroom - 2 bath with a pool (or at least access to a pool)
On the beach would be perfect, but not set in stone. Long term rental. Budget TBD as needed.
Working with a realtor - but FEMA folks are getting everything we've looked at so far. Just the 2 of us, no pets - excellent credit ratings, financially secure and retired -- other than being smokers would be considered by most as perfect tenants. (we didn't smoke in our own home in the states - would never think of smoking inside someone else's here)
I feel like our realtor is doing a good job - but figure it doesn't hurt to put it our there.
Any leads greatly appreciated -
