Minnesota Couple Looking For A Place (no kids or pets)

Hello,

My wife and I are looking for a 2 to 3 bedroom house -condo - villa - apartment.
We are in the process of moving to STX permanently, but we want to rent for the first 6 months up to possibly one year, while seeking a house to purchase on the island. We are open to any style of accommodation, provided its not a party central rental.

About us; we are in our later 40's, no kids, no pets, clean, quiet, responsible, very respectful of others property, and their privacy. We are also financially secure. We are seeking a rental/place that matches the way we are.

Am I expecting too much? If so, contacting me would be a waste of your time. Obviously, rental amount would depend your place, and what amenities are available. But, before I throw out numbers, I want to see what you have to offer, and go from there.

We will be on island December 1st, 2010. If we sound like a renter you would like to have, then let's talk!

Thank you for viewing my post, and have a great day!

Hmm, Mill Harbour - no offense, but I was told (they could be wrong) that it might not be the best fit for what I am seeking, thanks anyways Sauceress. I do appreciate your help.

I also want to thank the 15 other people who PM'ed me Monday morning, I am a bit overwhelmed at the moment.

Mill Harbour must be a huge place . . .

five out of the 19 PM's were from there, and the rental rates seemed to be the lowest of the replies, I think my turn off was the bar on site.
But that's just my preference, I'm sure if you're into that it's a great place, in fact twenty years ago, for me, that would have been convenient amenity, or if on vacation.

I'm just curious, what is the largest rental complex (outside of a hotel/motel) on the island, anyone know?

Peace,

Sundial

The bar is not really "on site".

I'll join the crowd, as my hubby (born in Sleep Eye raised in Litchfield) & I just purchased our second @ Mill Harbour. We live here, and love it! Smuggler's Cove is both a restaurant and bar. If you have not rented as of yet, feel free to contact us. Our rental is completely redone, 3 bdrm, 3 bath, w/ 3 galleries overlooking the Caribbean & our lagoon.

Hi Sundial,
I've been on vacation, so apologize for the delay in responding to your post. I'm actually still on vaca, but decided it was time to get back to work. I have a small apartment complex 3 miles west of downtown Christiansted. We rent both short and long term, but not vacation rentals. Our niche is more people relocating to the island, like yourself.

You may have seen our website, since I have an ad on the forum, so at the risk of being redundant, please take a look at http://www.virginislandsrentals.com for lots of pictures, information, rental rates and availability.

I expect to have a spacious two bedroom, two bath, fully furnished unit open for the first of Dec. The rate varies according to length of stay, and we are currently offering it at $1350 for a 6-12 month term. Dish Satellite TV, wireless Internet and garbage removal on site are included. Electric and water are additional, but already on, so you don't need to deal with it.

Lots more on the website, and please take a look at the page for Apartments and at the top, click on 2 Bdrm 5A. Be sure to look over the FAQ's, too. Lots of good, need to know, info.

Thanks for looking, and if interested, please email me at casita37@hotmail.com.

If you are looking for more upscale, try Villa Madeleine. All units have their own pool. Also you may like The Reef, it has a golf course. You can see condo rentals at St Croix Property Mgmt website and also Coldwell Banker VI website.

...oops, forgot Coakley Bay. Great views and pool, but people eating at the restaurant have a view of you...

I probably should have mentioned we will rent for a shorter term, too. A very popular length of rental is about 3 months. That gives you a chance to get to know the island a little better, get a job, if applicable, and decide exactly what part of the island is best for you. It's not a long commitment, but it's long enough you aren't living out of a suitcase while you explore.

The 2/2 apt. for 3 months would be $1500 per month
1 or 2 months at $1800 per month
Minimum 1 month rental

Thanks,

HI,

We have a wonderful, very private 2/2 home with amazing views of Sandy point and the cruise ship pier and a nice pool, gated and secure, that is available for $2200 a month. It is not for sale, so you would not be disturbed by customers looking at the house. I would be happy to send you photos and other info. We also have a nice 3/2 on the east end with a pool, Buck Island views, also very private and secure - for $2500 a month.

My email address is kim@email.vi.

Would love to help you!

Good day,

A big thanks to everyone for your posts and PM's, I'm sorry if I did not reply directly to you, as I said, it was a bit overwhelming, yet very positive.

After careful consideration, we've tentatively found a place that had everything we were seeking. We will be on island Dec 1st, and hope the unit is acceptable, however, it's hard to be certain without seeing it first.

Again, many thanks for your time and posts, it was much appreciated, I look forward to having you all as neighbors soon!

Sundial

ps - I've been watching the news/weather . . . hope everyone is safe and dry8-)
