      Hello, a colleague and I are planning to do a four week placement at Peebles hospital during this coming summer. We're looking for accommodation for roughly 6-8 weeks and I was wondering if anyone knows of people who will take lodgers as staying in hotels for this amount of time would be beyond our price range.

      Thanks in advance for the help!

    • family vacation

      Tortola Mar 13, 2014 at 8:42 AM

      I would like to take my family to Tortola (daughter and son in law and teenage grandchildren 16, 17, 19). I would like to stay on the island of Tortola and travel to Virgin Gorda for the day and possibly a day visiting Norman caves and St John. I would like to stay on or very near to a calm, swimming beach where there are water sports activities for my grandchildren. Would you suggest a resort or would a villa be a better idea? On the beach would be preferable. Thank you.

Atm i have found a way with air france and so on and it take 2 days and 1500 Euro per person .. Do you have a idea for a hotel (one of my dreams are the sandcastle at jost va Dyke and (of course) the soggy dollar bar :-)

      ???

      greetings from Germany

    • Getting & Living There

      British Virgin Islands Nov 16, 2011 at 1:48 AM

      Hey you all!

      During January 2012 I am going to BVI. I am citizen of EU - BVI belongs there I suppose.
      I have heared I need return ticket - it's something I didn't expect 'coz I have no idea how long I wanna be there - probably a few months or years. Got any of you experience with this? Can I go there just with one-way ticket? Why it is way?

      As next subject I am interested in living there. Can be on BVI easy life - in meaning - fishing, tearing fruits etc. with low cost. I do not want hotels etc. Just be there. Got a point? Generally - how much cost live there? With minimum expences of course.

      If someone can help me, I really appreciate it. Thanks a lot!

    • Tour to Virgin Gorda from Tortola

      British Virgin Islands Mar 6, 2010 at 5:21 PM

      I am planning a cruise with a day stop in Tortola, and i would like to visit Virgin Gorda. Since there will be probably many tourists who want to do the same tour, i would like to know what is the best way how to secure a participation on this tour - because i dont know if there is a limited capacity of these tours. Is it possible to book the tour via the cruise line prior the beginning of the cruise? Or is it better to take a ferry from Tortola to Virgin gorda instead of an organized tour ? Is it possible to book the ferry some days before the departure day?
      Thanks for every advice

    • Recommended hotel in Tortola for a family vacation

      British Virgin Islands Mar 3, 2010 at 2:41 PM

      Hello, please help me - i am finding a good and cheap hotel in Tortola for a week, ideal for a family with small child. I prefer a hotel on some nice beach, with snorkeling and water sport opportunities (cayacs, paddle boats) , with a grocery and good cheap restaurants close to it. I dont know if Tortola is ideal spot to such vacation, because i have found that:
      - many hotels are secluded and a car is necessary (but i dont want to drive there, because there is left-sided driving and what i have heard also dangerous)
      - prices in restaurants are very high there.
      What about taxis, are they expensive, if i use them daily ? Can i just call some taxi from hotel, or just catch on the road?
      Whats the average prices in an average restaurant there?
      Thank you for every information
