    • Medical elective accommodation.

      by medic91 Online Now Mar 30, 2014 at 1:52 PM

      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

      by ajjls35 Online Now 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.

    • help on where to stay..

      by Victoruruguay Online Now Jul 17, 2006 at 7:22 AM

      Hi everybody,
      My wife and me are planning our first trip to BVI, we've been to several islands in the past and never yet to this location.
      We like to be as close to the beach as possible and also with calm waters, we like snorkeling and sunbathing, I read there is surfing on the island ? I guess we should be on the opposite side ?...which side is calm and which one is rough ?.
      Any help you can give us will certainly be appreciated, we are coming from Uruguay (South America), both in our 40's.
      If you want you can answer directly to my email at :, or if not I'll check again here, this is my first time in this forum.
      Many thanks.
