How busy is your quiet little beach community in October mid/late October?

Any tips on house renting? Just grind VRBO?

Mid/Late October is a great time to visit. Businesses for the most part are still sorta operating on their summer hours. It's not crazy crowded and it is generally still warm enough to enjoy the beach and boating. GREAT fishing.

Rental rates can vary. Some places are still using their summer rates and some are using their off season rates during October. So it definitely helps to compare rates.

October is also a really popular month for weddings down here. Mine is going to be late July, which pretty much cancels out having an outdoor wedding.

However, October is also a big hurricane month. So when planning a vacation don't be surprised if a hurricane decides to pop up and fuck things up for you.

Pretty much all of it. Although, I mostly surf fish, and fall is a great time for surf fishing. Plus you can drive on the beach in the fall, so it makes it easier to get your fishing gear on the beach.

^^^We were able to rent a place on Sunset Beach for a month from mid-October to mid-November for what it costs for a week in July. It was great. Played lots of golf, did some fishing, and felt like a local, if only for a little while.

Full disclosure, my dad and my inlaws stayed the entire month, and me, my wife and little girl went ever weekend for 4 weekends straight, with one long weekend in there.

Sawahash pretty much nailed it, but I also like Red Fish and Amos Mosquitos in AB. Wednesday nights is locals night. Used to be buy one get one entree, but I think they changed it to 40% off back in the fall. Of course that deal is only good up until May.
Shucking Shack is ok too. They've got decent beers on tap.
