I'm moving to St Croix sight unseen for a period of six months to one year in September. I will be staying in a hotel while I find accommodation (2 bedroom). I plan on traveling with just a couple of suitcases, so I'll be looking for fully furnished accommodations.
There are a couple of things I see come up time and again on this site that I'd like some clarification with. One is the use of a car.
I won't be driving while here. What I'm seeking in terms of location is a beach within walking distance of shops, restaurants etc. Safety is important.
It seems that near, or in Christiansted is preferable because it appears the nightlife is most lively there and things like markets also but as I've said, my information is limited.
In terms of the high season on the island, when is this and is it harder to find rentals during this times?
Almost forgot, do you guys have any suggestions for real estate agents who deal with rentals and have a good rep? That would be terrific.
Thank you in advance for your help. Looking forward to my year of island life.
