Anybody can direct me or refer someone or a legit website that can help to find an apartment in florida for the next winter?

New to all this and try to avoid any possible scam.

Thanks in advance

I know nothing about it, but I wonder whether this might be helpful.

Lots of options, airbnb, VRBO, Kijiji (Canadians renting their unit). Look for AIRBNB "superhosts", and VRBO owners who have been listed and reviewed for a long time. The last time I rented an apt in Florida I met the lady in person who was advertising it on Kijiji and we were able to qualify each other for the rental. Just remember that if a listing seems to be too good to be true, it may well be!

For Kijiji you will see ads appearing later in the summer, it is too early right now. Remember that the rates are usually in US dollars even though they are advertising in Canada. Some of the owners rent their units for cash, without collecting FL state taxes, and to avoid paying taxes on the income. If you avoid booking fees, taxes, and even cleaning fees by doing it yourself, you can save some money on these deals but there is some risk as well with this type of arrangement. The lady we booked from asked us to represent ourselves as non-paying friends if anyone asked, but no ever did.

Might also be a no-rental condo.
