    My favorite time of year once all the snowbirds go home. I do feel for the businesses but damn it is so nice and tranquil

    Most of the Canadians here are owners, but the ones that do rent pay anywhere from$1000/mo to $1200/mo for and 1bdr/1ba in season. That probably is towards to lower end for oceanfront, but I think there are others cheaper. There's so many units available for rent here. Supply exceeds demand.

    Such are my observations of being here since 2003.
    I'm curious as to why the slow season doesn't extend to Christmas. I would have thought with kids in school during the fall, not a ton of vacationing gets done plus it's not that terribly cold in most places. Any thoughts as to why?

    It does extend to Christmas. In fact, it extends until after New Years. In the past, some tourists snowbirds started arriving in November. Not very many anymore.

    lots of snowbirds where i live. few years ago canadians were arriving as early as october/november. this time many arrived in december/january. i've heard that some are bothered by migration issues and they do not want to stay too long.

    I've heard quite a few American and Canadian snowbirds express concern about overstaying and not being permitted to re-enter next year.

    It actually does extend till Christmas. Low season officially starts after Easter. In mid-October Canadians celebrate their Thanksgiving and some of the snowbirds start coming back then. At the end of November the Americans celebrate their Thanksgiving and some of them start coming back. These are mostly the snowbirds that stay for 6 months. Most people wait until after Christmas to visit. In reality, high season is only about 12 weeks of solid business.
