U.S. Virgin Islands Homes for Rent
The U.S. Virgin Islands is composed of three main islands: St. Croix, St. John, and St. Thomas. Each island is filled with stunning views of the gorgeous turquoise-blue Caribbean Sea, white sand beaches, and plenty of unique foliage, but each island has its own unique personality. St. Thomas is perfect for those who want that island living experience with all the comforts and amenities of living in a more populated area. St. John, the smallest of the three major islands, is ideal for nature lovers as almost two-thirds of the island is part of the Virgin Islands National Park. The third island, St. Croix, is a great choice for people who are seeking a change of scenery that comes with a vibrant culture, delicious food scene, and a rich history that they want to be part of. With all those wonderful things, it's no wonder thousands of people flock to the U.S. Virgin Islands for vacation every year! And of those thousands of vacationers, there are always some people who find that they could really get used to island life in the long term and decide to make it their home.
Due to the size of the islands, the amount of U.S. Virgin Islands homes for rent is relatively small. There's much less long-term rental inventory available as so many properties are utilized for vacation rentals which means that the prices on long-term rentals tend to be more expensive. So shopping around is important if you're looking for a long-term rental home on the island of your choice within your budget. Thanks to the Internet, you don't need to be on the islands to start checking out properties, you can visit a few of the many different realty sites to see what's available and contact an agent on the island to either schedule tours for yourself when you come to visit or video walkthroughs if possible so you feel confident in the property you plan to live in.

There are long-term rentals available on all three of the major islands and with a little bit of searching, you should be able to find something that suits your preferences.
