Hey there! I am moving to St Croix next month. I've contacted a few real estate companies and am not getting much of a response. I have two dogs coming with me. Does anyone know how I can find listings for private rentals that would allow pets? Thank you!!
Find a pet friendly AIR B.B. rent for a month and hit the ground, meet people at bars and ask for rentals. That’s how we’ve always done it. Check craigslist but be wary of scammers. It took us a month to find a place in STX. I’m kinda picky though.

Don’t let the listing not mentioning that pets are allowed totally discourage you...having been a REALTOR myself for nearly 30 yrs, when I first started looking for a long-term rental here on STT, I told my agent to ignore that on the MLS ticket and let’s focus on the property first. This is because many times a landlord will have that put into the listing to discourage certain breeds or sizes of dogs. True to form, when we found the property I wanted to make an offer on, the landlord was willing to consider my individual dog’s size, age, temperment, etc. So, I’m just sayin’, but agreed it’s a lot tougher with a condo and apartment complex than with a stand-alone single family home. Good luck!
I guess I need a home then my dogs are not small but they're labs so they are smart and gentle breed. Well trained. My rental budget is up to $1500 and I don't need it till December. But I will be down there just myself from end of August through first week in December. So I have some time to look.
Until December I am looking for something short term maybe up to $800 per month. Less if possible. I am working at the hospital so something near there would be good. Any suggestions? The realtors I have spoken to don't have any. Thank you
