I'm checking out S.C. to stay from Oct. to May.

I'm an American author and lecturer and I usually drive from Canada in the summer to Fl. in the winter. This year I'm looking for a change, A city that is closer to Ontario and warm enough for me in the winter months. I've been checking out cities and Aiken looks promising. For one reason it's close to Ga. And still closer if I still want to work in Fl.

Does anyone know of someone who has a house or condo to rent at a reasonable price. Maybe the same rent as if I was to rent an apt. I've check apts out, and they range from $550. to 700. One bedroom is sufficient for me or two bedroom house. Apt's can be iffy to rent when one does not want a 12 month lease. I'm also open to renting a room in a quite house.

please email me at : tara@tararae444.com

I'm leaving Ontario end of Oct. so not much time.

Thank you for your help in this matter.

A surprising number of Canadians live in Aiken, either full-time or as winter residents. Your competition for winter lodgings will be very wealthy horsepeople and their service staff. Small apts are taken for thoroughbred trainers and riders.

Aiken is across the Savannah River from Augusta, GA, but it is not close to Florida.

My advice to you is that you spend some time with wikipedia.

I know it's another 400 mi. to Fl. But better than driving the 3 days it normally takes.

I sure hope you are wrong about not finding a place to stay. Something usually comes up as I teach, "Intention is a map for the mind". So I'm putting that intention out there.

If Aiken is what you say, how about another town nearby. I've also check out Anderson.

tks for answering.

Hi Mike: P.S. I'm an American. I just like staying in Brockville Ont. as it has great lakes and casinos.

Augusta, Ga, is nearby to Aiken and, being a larger place, may have more availability. Here's a couple of ideas - maybe you could negotiate a longer term.

Stevedec, I'm wondering if they mean $550-700/month not per week!!!

I would guess in FL you could find something that inexpensive in some locations. I may be wrong, but that's the first impression I got in reading this post.

No, it's per week, because I've actually stayed in one of them, but, as I say, ask what they might do for a longer stay.

No Steve, I meant the original poster, that's what they want to pay per month, not per week. I'm betting they don't want to pay $2,000 per month.

I know those would be accurate prices in SC/GA where there are events that take place, even a little low for some locations in our area.

Have you considered the Beaufort, SC area? Prices might not be any better, but it is worth a try.
