Island Living for One Month - Island recommendations...

Jump to last reply

We are a family of 4 with 2 small children that want to move to a Carribean island!
We have decided to do a 6 week trial run on an island to see if we actually can handle it.
Not having visited most of the islands, can anyone recommend an island for us to chekck out. We do not want anything too touristy but with small children we still want good health care and the basics.
This is what we are specifically are looking for:
- 2 bdrm apartment with pool for under $800 a month
- safe (family) neighborhoods - low crime rate on island!!
- walking distance to beaches and markets
- good bus system (or reasonable car rental rate)
- nice snorkel and swim beaches
- clean water
- english preferred but not necessary
We are open to suggestions of islands and specific areas on these islands!
Any thoughts on this or direction to other forum threads is MUCHLY appreciated!
Thanks in advance!
:)
