    I'm living at Ruth's Place right now.
    She is the BEST landlady I ever stayed with. She picked me up from (and will drop me to) the Airport, takes me anywhere I need to go anytime--grocery, into town, to the banks, to shop/sight see, school!, any day we ask her. FOR FREE. If we ever had problems anytime day or night, just a phone call would make her come over and fix it.
    I'm really glad I'm here beacause I'm paying less than $500 a month (vs a fancier place where you pay $1,200 a month). We get electrcity, water, Air conditioning and a room fan, Cable TV, plus Internet FREE! um...maybe people complaining here lived in a Palace, but if you have any experience traveling or living, and living as a POOR Student which most of us are (with $100,000 or so in loans) then this place is close to heaven in terms of accomodation Yes my studio is smaller than my apartment back in the US, and I have had a few bugs (which die instantly if you spray them & keep your appt clean), but living with Ruth as the landlord tops it because she is seriously the nicest lady ever. I can't comment on the cars b/c I take the AUA bus or walk to campus (like a 15-20 min walk), but you can rent a car from elsewhere that's nice. Ruth lets us take the cars out for anything for FREE. Oh, and on Most Sundays, she picks us all up from campus and takes us to the restaurant right next door, Rosa's where we get to eat a really big and delicious lunch--free agaiN! Courtesy of Ruth and Rosa--who is this little sweet and beautiful Spanish lady. I'm speaking on behalf of the 11 friends I have living here. That's right. We all are really happy with what we have.
    Oh, there's NO Noise I ever heard from near by. Pretty quiet studying.
    So I recommend Ruth's to anyone.

    P.s. If you guys come to AUA, you can ask the Housing Director Pat Ho, ANYTHING, like her views on Any landlord, like Ruth, and hear it from her ok? She told me exactly what I'm telling you, and I was confident in choosing Ruth's Place, and am very happy with my decision.

    (I originally wrote this as a reply to a student complaining about the appts where I'm staying, thought to share the info with you all)...
    You know what guys, Med school is hard, not living in the US with our comfy life style is hard, and pretty much anything worthwhile in life is hard (for the most of us I think), but you have to make the best of it. And you learn patience, and how incredibly strong you are along the way. So I hope at the end you do emerge as a better person, with so much experience, and patience, before you meet your patients.

    GOOD LUCK EVERYONE.
    God bless us & help us.

    Nice advertisement. However, I have a few friends who would say to RUN not walk away from renting from Ruths Place. The living conditions are terrible, and she is known for not giving back deposits. New students are warned! New students are recommended to stay with University housing for as long as possible, and then live in well known, and safer apartments.

    Just adding:

    Hey guys,
    I transferred into AUA so I didn't live on the island before living at Ruth's so I'm unable to comment on other appts.
    I really want to add that bringing the following things below will make your stay much more plesant if you're living at Ruth's:
    1) Scented candles
    2) your own cleaning supplies (antibacterial wipes, sponges, etc). Ruth does clean the appt before you move in but you may have to re-clean it yourself periodically. You also get a mop and broom. And can ask her for anything.
    3) Your own Shower curtains, bed sheets, and pillow (you won't regret it)
    4) liners for drawers/closet.
    5) your own hangers

    A lot of stuff you can purchase from the island but it's costly. Having your own car makes life heaven, or car pool. But taking the bus can be ok too. Just remember you're here to study and not get bothered by other things. It's not America but you WILL return home soon enough.

    Certain things may upset you time to time at Ruth's:
    --power outage once in a while (when all students are home and using their ACs, fans, and microwaves)
    --low water pressure (again when all students are home)
    Ruth's there for anything. I really liked her.

    Most importantly, I highly recommend you have a friend that's living near you or there too because you're going to need all that support for days when you're frustrated with school, living circumstance, or life.

    I hope everyone finds housing they like and can afford.
    I agree with everyone above on checking out where you will live before you pay--if your living envt is impt enough to you to affect studying. ESP NEW STUDENTS!!

    Personally I came in with my mind only on studying and didn't let the small things bother me too much.
    As they say:
    Don't sweat the petty things and don't pet the sweaty things!
    Be safe!
    p.s. You must try the 12 pack of raisin buns sold in the bread isle at Epicurian. They're only 3.75 EC and will make your life heavenly. I got my friends addicted to them too. haha!

    Anyone taking bets that God's Friend here has another name? Rhymes with Ruth?

    Just please check any place before you decide on anything or give deposit money. You never know, you might get lucky and get a nice room/place but don't take unnecessary risks.

    Also some words of encouragement and advice for housing and living in Antigua.

    don't be afraid to bargain with the landlords, or for anything you get from Antiguans, such as food at the market, renting cars, or even or an umbrella spot at the beach. Set standards, be the change! Don't settle for less for your hard earned money, make this place into what you want it to be. Antigua is a beautiful, make the most of staying here.

    That's funny because I didn't know Ruth was a good looking 20 yr old med student or that she had converted to Islam.
