The Best Summer Lodging Options for Quebec Snowbirds

Every year, many Quebec snowbirds leave Florida to come back to spend the summer in Quebec. These snow birds often find themselves looking for temporary accommodation in their home province. In this article, we will present the different accommodation options available to you and explain why temporary home rental is the wisest choice to make the most of your summer stay.

Opt for a permanent pied-à-terre in Quebec

In Quebec, many Quebec snowbirds prefer to maintain a main residence in the province to simplify their summer return. This solution has many advantages, such as the pleasure of finding a familiar environment, furniture and personal items each time you stay. In addition, it allows you to maintain a close link with your loved ones and to keep a fixed address for the various administrative procedures.

However, it is important to consider the expenses associated with this option. Indeed, the costs of maintenance, heating, insurance and property taxes continue to accumulate even when you are abroad. Thus, it is essential to carefully assess whether the benefits provided by a permanent pied-à-terre compensate for these additional costs. In some cases, it may be wiser to consider temporary alternatives to take full advantage of his summer stay without worrying about the responsibilities associated with the property.

Occasional rental of apartments and houses

The first possibility of accommodation for snowbirds is in the rental of apartments or houses. Many online platforms, such as Kijiji, LesPAC or Airbnb, make it easy to find properties to rent for varying periods, ranging from a few days to several months. This flexibility allows us to adapt to your specific housing needs. However, it may turn out difficult to find a property that meets your expectations, especially in terms of comfort, location and budget. Indeed, depending on the length of your stay, the costs for this type of accommodation can explode. In addition, competition with long-term tenants can make finding suitable housing even more difficult.

Motels and hotels, an option for snowbirds?

Motels and hotels are a viable alternative for temporary accommodation. This option has the advantage of offering a certain degree of comfort and practicality thanks to the services offered, such as room cleaning and 24-hour reception. However, for a stay of several months, the costs can quickly become substantial and weigh on your budget. In addition, hotel rooms generally have a limited surface area, which limits living space and can compromise your comfort. In addition, they do not always have an equipped kitchen, which can constrain autonomy in meal preparation and make the stay of Quebec snowbirds less pleasant.
