Looking for a house to rent next summer for a wedding!
I am looking for a multi bedroom house to rent next summer for up to a month (depending on the price) to have our wedding at! We would like it to have beach access. If you have a house you would like to rent for a period of time or if you know someone with something like this please let me know and hopefully we can make a deal. Thank you so much!
This is better addressed on the travel forum as it's not a relocation issue. However, depending on which island you're thinking of, one of your best resources is www.vrbo.com. It's a very easy site to navigate as you pick the island and then enter your dates and all other parameters and the search engine quickly whittles down the options to come up with those fitting your requirements. You deal directly with the owner or the owner's agent, have direct contact for any and all specific questions and have certain guarantees when going through vrbo.
One of the first questions to ask once you've narrowed down your choices (and if it's not mentioned on the site) is its suitability for a wedding reception as some owners don't allow their property to be used for that purpose.
It's also an excellent idea (if you haven't already thought of it) to use the services of a wedding planner on island. There are several highly reputable ones and they'll work within your budget to get all the details taken care of which are difficult to do from off-island from the catering to the officiant to the marriage certificate, etc.
Have fun planning!

Great vacation villa rental company:
VRBO and www.flipkey.com offer vacation rentals in the VI and include properties on STX, STT, STJ and Water island. Anything with beach access and muliple rooms is going to be pricy, even in off season which summer is. Good luck on your search and congrats on your upcoming wedding. Having a wedding planner on island to take care of the details is a very good idea.
PS/You may want to have travel insurance for yourself and advise your guests to do so as summertime is also hurricane season.
Oh yes sorry I am living on St. Croix and planning on having the wedding on this island. I know it's not exactly a relocation issue, I am just using all resources possible, thank you for understanding and for all the help!!
