5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW, 1/11/2014
Reviewer: Rob (Providence, RI)

Concise and to the point. Everything you need to know about living on the island from how to register your car to who to call to for water. Written and produced by islanders...I know that because by chance I happened to connect with one by email while I was investigating property insurance. We are preparing to move to the island and I have read it three times. Highly recommended!!!

Reviewer: Leah (Tallahassee, FL)

I could not have ordered a more perfect book. My boyfriend and I are planning a move and have been researching the islands quite a bit. Let me tell you, even after our own research, there is no better guide to the islands! This book answers all of our questions and even ones we didn't know we had! I could not be more thankful for the information that we have found from reading. VITraders, y'all definitely hit it out of the park with this one! Thank you!!!

I want to compliment you on the quality of the Settler's Guide and the very prompt shipping service of my order. I received it yesterday and I'm very pleased with the information. I think it can save us from making some wrong decisions about moving there. I highly recomend that anyone seriously intrested in moving to the Virgin Islands and that wants straight facts - needs to purchase this book.

It is a phenomenal source of information; and anyone considering relocating or even just visiting won't be disappointed in the investment. It is the best $15.95 that I have spent in a long time!

Reviewer: (, )

I am considering moving to the USVI and this book was helpful in that it did not dissuade me with negatives about island living. It is informative, thorough and a great resource.
