What Condos Allow Large Dogs
Hello all, I am looking to purchase and move to st croix and wanting to know if anyone knows of condos that allow large dogs. I have a 8 year old black lab her name is mahi and she is like my child.
Thanks for your time
It's rare to find any condo associations that allows any pets at all, much less a large dog as they tend to have a size limit (30 lbs.) If they do. I can only think of one association here in St. Thomas that would allow a larger dog and that would have to be with board approval.
Glad you're bringing your pup but it will make it more difficult to find what you want.
Try contacting a stx realtor to help in your search.
The condo association in stt that allows dogs larger than 30 lbs with board approval is called Caret Bay Villas. They are pretty pricy.
A 2x2.5 is currently on market for $350k and a 4x3.5 is listed for $585k which is the lowest price I've seen in awhile for a 4 bed unit. It's a smaller duplex complex out on the north side of island and each unit has its own pool.
Chris, have you spent any time on STX or made a pre-move visit? The general advice is always to rent for at least a year before thinking of purchasing property on any of the islands. Just getting down to the basics, island living isn't for everyone (not always apparent initially), the attrition rate of newcomers is very high, and purchasing property in an unknown area and slow moving market isn't a good idea at all. Best advice is for you and the pooch to settle into a rental and island living before thinking of making such a commitment. Good luck!
Thanks so much for all the feedback it is great to have a great group of people willing to help, I have made it to st Thomas and st johns have not placed foot on st croix yet.. We both are in the corp world of banking and finance.. I got my captains licence three years ago and would like to put it to work down there. I moved to south Florida 18 years ago and looking for something different .. I was going to move to key west which is a very small island but then I saw the prices in the usvi was cheaper
I am at a loss for the name, it will come sometime. But, I sat on a plane next to a man a few years back and he was bringing his 120 lb Doberman and he was renting a condo for 6 months while working here. The condos are just past Salt River. They are nice.
I'll have the name when someone responds or it comes to me the name, sorry!
I do agree with OldTart, rent first. It's a big island and you may not want to live in certain areas once you get here and get a circle of friends!
