Blessed Holiday Season everyone,

I will moving to St. Croix in exactly 5 mths. and I need to know if anyone out there knows about Peppertree or if it's a nice place to live, I understandf it's across from the Hospital and a gated community, it would be nice to know more.

Respect,

Natural

It is a trailer court; single and double wides. Apparently it has a community center and a pool I think. I have never been inside but passing it on the road it looks fairly well maintained..

I thought about moving there but my employer advised against it. Then I started reading the local paper and noticed a good deal of action (shooting, domestic violence) going on there. That was over 2 years ago, I don't know about now.

It was a great, clean, well maintained community. As of now, it is still gated. The pool is small and it's NOT well maintained as it use to before. The community also has a laundry on site with very few washer and dryer. They have their own garbage disposals as well on site. The community's pavement need extreme fixture. The rent is expensive for the amenities you are receiving, community wise. Everything changed ever since new management took over. I never lived in Pepper Tree Terrace, but had friends who lived there. Very few young adults live in the community. Some are not mature and responsible as others. However, it's a quiet community. Lots of hired individuals for the oil refinery live there as well. There's long term and short term leasing.

As per location, it is very convenient. It's across the hospital. You are within walking distance to Sunny Isle shopping center. It consists of a Kmart store, other stores, a theater, fast food restaurants, banks, and other private doctors, including a lab. There's also other few not mentioned. It's very convenient transportation wise. Everything is close by. Ideal location.

As a person living in the states, you'll compare the complex to what you are used to living. Me personally as a Virgin Islander who has lived in the United States for two years, I can see a huge difference.

If you don't find anything else, I think it would be a great start until you settle in and find something more suitable to your likings.

Peppertree seems OK to me. It is technically a "gated community", but don't think upscale. It's pretty basic. I checked it out once for a nurse who contacted me about our apartments, but she wasn't sure she would have a car. It was ideal for her, since she could walk to work and the other places mentioned by yf87. The only thing is they don't supply house wares, TV, cable, electric, etc. So unless you want to run around taking care of all that, not to mention the expense, it may not be the best place to start out. You could ask if they could at least have the electricity on for your arrival and throw a set of sheets and towels in your suitcase for the first night, until you can get over to Kmart, or wherever. They do rent month to month too, so if you hate it, you aren't stuck.

That was over a year and a half ago that I was in there. I don't know how new the new management is, so maybe it's all different now. Do you have their number? http://www.viphonebook.com. This link will be handy for lots of stuff.

With many of my long time resident friends getting nervous with the warm weather that is happening now and what may happen this summer, I question living in a trailer.

Are you referring ot hurricanes? As i wrote in another thread with a similar subject, "There were no problems [at Peppertree Terrace] with Hurricane Omar, and apparently no problems with Hurricane Hugo either."

Omar did not hit us, it went by us and most had some damage even if it was just landscaping damage. I don't think not having any damage after Omar counts at all.

Hugo is another matter, and I doubt anyone stayed in their trailers to wait out Hugo, I'm sure they all went to much safer locations. I seriously doubt they had no problems. But I doubt it would be there if it wiped the whole place out. So if you wanna live there make sure you have good friends with a nice concrete home or be aware of public places you can go to wait out the storm.

If I remember correctly, there was extensive damage at PT from Hugo...We know folks whose trailer was basically demolished...and I don't remember that theirs was "the exception". The hospital across the street was unusable after the storm, and the stories from folks who were inside there during the storm were consistent with what was going on elsewhere...scary.

OK, my bad. Hugo did hit Peppertree Terrace.

Omar did enough damage to STX to count as a real hurricane. Dozens of boats were sunk, some buildings were damaged, electricity was out for days or weeks, but the units at Peppertree Terrace came out fine, according to a friend who lived there at the time. It's reasonably protected against lighter storms.

The winds from Hugo were100 mph more than Omar; Peppertree did not stand a chance.
