3 bedroom rentals

Possibly moving soon to St Croix. My husband is an emergency room RN. We will be moving with our 21 year old daughter. Wondering what the cost is for a 3 bedroom condo in the Christiansted area. Nice..possible oceanfront.
If you are lucky enough to find one, funished, ocean front, expect to pay over $3000/month with a long term lease. The refinery is about to open and they plan to hire 2000. They will need housing. Never mind the temporary workers to repair the island. Cars will also be at a premium.
My brother owns Olympic RAC and everything is rented out. Same with the others.
Agree with others regarding giving you a heads-up that you might encounter limited supply of rentals and higher costs due to limited availability and demand. Part of this is some properties were damaged so off the market for now; and the other part is that people on island for recovery work are renting available hotel rooms, vacation rentals, apartments etc.
You might need to be creative to find something.
Try our other website's message board, VIMovingCenter, its geared to residents and people that want to move. Here is the link: http://www.vimovingcenter.com/talk/. Also if your husband is moving for an already secured job or as a travel nurse, find out if the hospital or agency that is sending him to St. Croix, can assists with housing. They sometimes did this prior to the hurricanes. Try some real estate agents. They will know what houses are available for rent or can try to find something. And the newspaper is usually a good option too, worth trying: the St. Croix Avis is not online; but the Island Trader Crucian edition is at http://www.virginislandsdailynews.com/eedition/islandtrader/.
