I miss the bougainvillea! I miss the oleander!! I miss the iguanas and the geckos!!! I miss that aqua blue water!!!! I miss the 80 degrees with the soft winds!!!!!

OK. Now that's outta my system. Actually, home is pretty nice too. There's next year to plan. There is a large house...out on the east end.....and maybe......

Sending a special, "Hello!" to STT Resident and Adam. Thanks for the lovely dinners, the great local ambiance of your restaurant, and all the info and suggestions you provided. Give the kitties a pat for me! See ya in about 330 days.
It was lovely to meet you both! 27 degrees? OUCH OUCH OUCH. My skin is goose-bumping just thinking about it - but then I get goosebumps at about 72. So glad you had a good month here and look forward to seeing you on the flip-flop a year from now. Keep in touch! I'll make sure to give Adam your best and be sure to give the felines an extra rub from you. Cheers!

I am a twenty something year old entrepreneur from New York City, who works from home (online business) and is very interested in moving to St Thomas fulltime. A good friend of the family use to have a home on St. Thomas and we use to visit often when i was much younger. I have a few questions and if someone can assist i would be most greatful and appreciative.

Internet Access?? Is it high speed? and if so what is the monthly costs...
Telephone Access?? Reliable I believe, what is the cost...
Wondering if my AT&T iPhone will work on the island on the AT&T network using my minutes... i know Puerto Rico is included i wonder if the USVI are?

Are there car dealerships? or should I ship my car to the Island... Is it necessary to have a car full time?

Thanks for all the help! MUCH APPRECIATED

Your best bet is to go to USVI Moving Center - The Ultimate Resource for Relocating to and Living in the Virgin Islands which is a site specifically designed for people interested in moving to the islands. Between all the general information on there and the active forum all your questions will be quickly answered. Good luck!
