Default Family Moving to St. Lucia

Hi all,

My Family and I are moving to St. Lucia on 12 May 2012. I have a son and a daughter 5 and 3 years old respectively. I have looked at a few schools for them and short listed it to International School of St. Lucia. Does anyone have any suggestions on alternatives or experience with ISSL? We were also looking to live in the North or North West of the island, any suggestions on help with finding a real estate agent for these areas? Any information on cost of living: average utilities; rent (2 bed apart); average food bill; average salary etc:
Thank you
Navin

Hi NavinG, to be honest it all depends on your lifestyle. You have to be more specific and state exactly what you are looking for. Have you secured a job and want to know what the average salary is in that particular profession and scale ? St Lucia is nice and the north is well developed however it comes at a cost. You should find a reasonably priced two bed apartment, but again it depends what you want from this, sea view, pool, security etc ? Some food products in the supermarket are comparable with the Uk, some even more expensive. Locally produced stuff is cheaper. finding a real estate agent is easy enough and no doubt some will offer their services to you after reading this post. Have you checked the Montessori school in the area, I would have thought that would be more age appropriate for your children ?

Thank you. I am a chartered accountant, so wanted to know what the average salary is for an experienced CA. We are looking for an apartment between EC$1,500 and EC $2,000, the north was recommended but I guess for obvious reasons. What is the name of the Montessori in the area? You are very helpful. Thank you.
