Apartment in Christiansted for December 2013 ?

My wife and I are tired of the short, dark days of December in the States and are considering spending next December in the tropics. Is it possible to rent an apartment in downtown Christiansted for a month? We are in our early 70s and would prefer not to drive every day but rent a car by the day for side trips, so we would like to be near restaurants and a grocery store. Is this a feasible plan? Can anyone suggest apartment rental agencies?

Boy, do I hear you about the short Decembers days! And this year our weather in Boston has just been very overcast or dreary or rainy most of those short days so I feel like I've been in the dark all month!

I'm scratching my head about where to suggest you stay in a rental apartment. There are no grocery stores within a reasonable walking distance from downtown C'sted. One thought is the complex called Schooner Bay which is in the Gallows Bay area and near the Schooner Bay market and several restaurants. You could also get a cab to go out to dinner in C'sted. You might try looking on www.vrbo.com for some ideas.

Hoping Crabgroupie will come on and give you another idea...

I've been waiting on someone with more knowledge than me to jump in with suggestions Carol. The access to a grocery is the sticking point and you are more familiar than I am but would HOTC be an idea of where to stay?

I think you could walk to Schooner Bay Market (or that newer convenience store) in Gallows Bay from the Schooner Bay condos and I think the HOTC launch may make a trip to the Gallows Bay dock for HOTC guests to walk over to the shops. Cathy would know better about that...

You can walk to Schooner from town, we have done it many times. HOTC probably would be more expensive than an apt. and they do not have full kitchens, but some might be able to make do.

Perhaps look at Craig's list http://virgin.craigslist.org/

or the Crusian Trader …newspaperdirect.com/epaper/viewer.aspx

or VI Moving Center Classifieds http://www.vimovingcenter.com/talk/list.php?5

good luck
