Newcomers from Vietnam need help !!!
Posted May 17th, 2012 - 12:27 am by from Jakarta, Indonesia (Permalink)
Hello CSers from Pensacola!

I just arrived this beautiful place for 1 week. I am very happy after a lot of efforts to get a US visa and stay here for 12 months !

USA is very different from my country, Vietnam. It's modern, clean, and very very large. People I met are very nice . I love this place much. And I want to take more time to discover around. :)

Although I am enjoying this place I am meeting some difficulties and I need help.

I am living with 5 other people. We are here for an intership/training program. So, we are working at Orange Beach, far from my house (near Lilian Road) around 30 miles. Because we don't have any vehicle so it's very difficult to go to work. We need to rent a house around the working place (Canal Road, Gulf Shore,...). The problem is the real estate company asks us to have credit score or rental history or income. We can not meet this requirement right now. Any suggestion??? Can someone tell me how we can rent a house here in this situation? We need a house with 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms,.. The price is around 700 - 1200 usd/month. Or do you know any useful website for finding a house?

I do appreciate any help.

If you are planning to visit Vietnam, pls tell me. I travel a lot around Vietnam. I can help with some useful information.

Thanks very much in advance!

Here is Craigslist.com. It is a site used for linking people with various needs/offers. I have searched for Gulf Shores, 3 Bedroom, $700-1200 rentals. Click on the links to get information and contact them ASAP. If my search was too narrow, you can expand it on your own time.

If this does not work, you can get a local newspaper from Gulf Shores and search for houses/apartments for rent.

Hope this helps!
