I am anticipating accepting a position on the island (STT) and will be needing a apartment. From the looks of things it is pretty expensive to get in with the 1st, and last month rent so I will probably need to stay at a resident inn, are there places like that on STT? Please advise, thank you.

It's usually 1st, last AND security, so it can get pretty pricey...when is your anticipated move? I have a two bedroom apartment, with the master bedroom, that has AC and doorwall to the deck, available for $750/mo, no lease, no last, no security, just $750/mo, pay as you go, and please give me 30 days notice to leave...PM if you interested...just above Limetree Beach on the Southside...

I take it that this is in St. Thomas? I just want to be clear, I am not familiar with the Island at all. Also is it close to transportation, I will not have a car and I see that bikes are not feesible on the Island.

Yes, it is STT. If you do not have transportation, you may want to look for a place that is convenient to transportation to your job location.
North and Southsides of island do not have any public transportation. West end can be quite the commute if your job is on east end tho they do have bus service. How reliable that will be, is hard to say.

Sorry, Marty but if she has to catch rides to work and back, the Lime Tree area may not be the best spot. East End/Red Hook/Nazareth is probably the most user friendly area to live in terms of being able to catch the safari buses back and forth, if one is without their own transportation.

I see people catching rides at the top of the hill (by Antilles School's MCM complex) every morning...I often pick them up, myself, depending on which way I am heading when I'm in my car...and, since I often drive one of my two Harley's, the car may be available to borrow...
