moving down for summer
I will be moving down to St. Croix to intern for the summer. I will need a place to stay from the end of May until the very beginning of August. I will be working in Christiansted and don't want a terribly long commute.
I will be in school until just before I come down to start work and would like to find a place to stay before I arrive. Does anyone know of anyone looking to sublet their apartment for the summer or looking to pick up a roommate for a couple of months, or know of an available apartment. Only thing I really care about is that the apartment be in a safe area. What would be a good area to live it, and can anyone recommend an apartment broker if they don't know of any available apartments. I am reasonably flexible with rent but would not want to spend much over 1200.
Thank you very much.
If anyone could even just suggest a neighborhood or real estate agent who represents apartments I would really appreciate it.

Almost all the real estate agents here have a rental or two and usually someone in each of the major offices handles rentals. I would suggest calling all of them, ask if there is one agent that handles rental properties, other wise they will just transfer you to whatever agent gets new calls for the day. Hovensa has a big project going on this summer and they are snapping up alot of the rentals. I would also try calling some of the smaller hotels and bed and breakfast type places and see if they would give you a monthly price. Otherwise plan on stayin in a hotel at least a week and hitting the pavement hard to find a place. That is how most people have to do it. It is hard to find a apartment at a reasonable price if you are not here.
Call ReMax and ask for DJ - she handles renting the Scotia Bank apartments (right in the middle of C'sted). They are safe and pleasant. Studios and one-bedrooms. They are usually pretty full, but might be worth a call.
