    Some questions

    I have been thinking about doing an extended stay within the next 12-18 months. to "Try it out" I was thinking maybe a month?

    Looking for a few options. grassrootsnegril.com was posted in another thread. Has anyone stayed there? How "Far away" is it?

    Also, what are some other options?

    My main concerns are

    Saftey
    Cost
    Location



    Transportation would also be a main concern of mine. I would definitely NOT want to take a taxi every time. I would want to drive myself for convenience as well as site seeing.

    Is there a good place to rent a car for a long period of time, or would it be cheaper to buy a hoopdie and sell it prior to leaving?


    Anything else anyone can think of that would be helpful would be great?

    Rob and Lisa, or anyone else who lives there full time or stays there for an extended period. What's the average cost per day would you say to live comfortably but not like a king?

    Hello :
    A good plan ! I can offer a luxuriously equipped {everything !] one bedroom apartment [sleeps 6, if you need], 200 meters from Hi-Lo, 900 meters from the beach. This should answer your taxi question. You walk a little and hire a taxi when need. High security, beauriful view, quiet area [if you try to stay ON the beach - you will know why I stress quiet]. The cost is $ 1,000 per month [US or Ca -up to you.
    See my" to buy or to rent" post.
    Regards

    Flip, don't buy a car just for a month visit, LOL. Rent a scooter? Rent a car when you have siteseeing days planned?

    I think grassroots is pretty far out west end road, near Out Of Town Pastry?

    If you are up to walking some but not long distances, finding a place between town and say, Ella Drive would be pretty walkable. I like being able to walk to town and catching a taxi to the beach or Sav from there.

    Walter, is your place in Redground? I walked up Hermitage Rd recently and noticed a place that looked kind of like yours.

    Hi Lola :
    Yes, you have good memory ! Maybe it is the colour, maybe the sign on the front gate, I am happy we get noticed. Answering your questions :
    - security - there is a charming Rotwailer/German Shepperd dog who can make it to the front gate in 2 seconds. A thief wouldn't ! Seriously, the most important security factor is that there are always people there. Very peacefull and professional tenants, half of them working evenings. And there is my wife there most of the time. All this, combined with bright security lights, grills and cameras makes it a safe place.
    - The long term tenancy apartment currently vacant is a 2 bedroom, 2 batroom - recently renovated, cold and hot water [assured !], washing machine hook up,etc. Rent is $JA 30,000/mth or $JA 35,000/mth with AC. It has been completely wired, a solid window installed and we can have AC installed in a week.
    - A vacation type units are shown at www.negrilluxuryapartments.com We ask for $ [US or CAN-up to you] 500/week, 800/2 weeks, 1,000/month. Book a flight, call me, and examine the other one.
    Regards

    Re: Some questions

    Hello Walter,
    I was looking at your apartments, we will be arriving Dec. 26th. for a 2 month stay and was wondering if it would be possible to stop by and get a tour? Next trip may be 3 months. We currently are renting a studio in a brand new home of Westland Mtn. Road but nothing is incl. No bedding, drapes ( I need dark ), AC (not that I really need it but it's nice to have) just to cool the room down before sleeping. I would rather bring donations in my suitcase than bedding ect. Jan. 10th to April 1 2015. would be our next visit. I have your local phone # and will call once I get situated. Thanks
