    Cupecoy Beach Club is a block from campus, right across Atlantis Casino; about a 5 minute walk.

    The apartments I've been in there have all been very nice, but I know some were pretty pricey as far as rent goes.

    Haven't heard too much in the way of complaint from the people I knew who lived there, but check with people currently on island...their info may be more up to date!

    i'm there. it's a 3 minute walk to campus. sort of pricey, but not obscenely so, compared to most of the near campus housing. my apartment has a kitchen. some do, some don't. what you do get is very good security, a so-so weight/workout room, quiet neighbors, beautiful landscaping, a very nice swimming pool with a swim up bar--if that's your kinda thing--plus, another bar, The Cliffhanger, located on the ocean side of the apartments. It's a 2 minute walk to Cupecoy Beach, and 5 minutes to Mullet Bay Beach. All units are individually owned, so each landlord may have specific things you can and can't do. For example, some allow pets, mine don't. I plan to spend my entire time here at CBC.

    i have been to cupecoy beach resorts, some of my daughtters friends moved in april, they have a very large 3 bedroom unit, great kitchen -sunken living room with sliding glass doors that lead to a patio - apartment also has a washer and dryer. Very nice place. , my daughter will be residing there come august, being kicked out of dorms for the arrival of the first semester students - AUC used to hold a lottery system at the end of each semester for students that wanted to stay in dorms, but the incoming class for august is very large and from what i understand only a few select 3 rd semester students were allowed to stay. I am not sure if second semester kids were ask to vacate. TYLER TEXAS is correct as usual-- The weight /workout room is so-so as he stated but it is more than auc has. Pool is gorgeous - I was pleasantly surprised at the security - What i could not figure out was where do you park you car? and i forgot to ask -

    First of all, you are the most insightful person to ever post on VMD, but I digress. The deal w/the parking is that each condo owner gets 1 parking spot, regardless of whether he's split his place into 2 or 3 units. I bought my car from my landlords, so I get their space when they're not here. Beyond that, you can park on the street in front, which isn't all that bad as your car would at least be within earshot of the gaurds, and w/in view of the casino cafe until 2am. And, if someone sideswipes your island car, big deal, it was ugly to begin with. Or, you can park up at the school's parking lot where it's reasonably, by island standards, secure. CBC just finished repaving and slightly enlarging the parking in the rear, but i have no idea if that changes the parking policy.

    IMHO, Cupecoy is the nicest complex that is close to school. Other apartments are either individually owned or Solutions managed. Individual owners cannot be counted on to actually have your place clean when you move in, nor are they accountable for basic repairs. I have never personally dealt with Solutions, but I haven't heard many good things.

    Cupecoy Beach Club is the safest, cleanest, most comfortable place. I'd have moved there if I had given it more thought.

    I live in a privately owned unit in Cote Azur, which was beautifully remodeled for $800/month (American cabinets, stone marble looking floors, leather couch). Not much on the side of square footage, but it is one of the more nicely decorated and clean apartments I have ever lived in. With any privately owned condo unit, it is best to check them first. One unit can look like a high-end plush urban condo, and the unit next door can look like it doubled as a chicken coop. One the outside, they appear to be exactly the same. It is best to check the unit before renting.

    So true. Also, get in touch with students who have rented from that particular land lord before to get their opinions before throwing down any of your hard-borrowed student loan money.

    Make sure that all renovations and/or work to be done on your unit is DONE BEFORE you move in....otherwise it will never happen.

    Cupecoy

    I lived at Cupecoy Beach Club the entire time I was in SXM. It's a great place to live. I had a 2bedroom/2.5bath ~1400sqfeet, washer/dryer. Safe, close to campus, quiet. I would definately live there again.
