So, what happens when the renter puts out 14 pink flamingos in the front yard, and somebody complains. The renter gets the letter of complaint and just throws it away.

I’m guessing very few short term renters are given keys to the mailboxes, so the complaint letter will likely go to the owner.

My guess would be you get a 140 post thread with half saying it's o.k.
and the complainers should mind their own business. And half saying don't break the rules you agreed to when you bought here.

Maybe 1 or 2 saying "Taste like chicken!"

I live in a nice neighborhood with nice neighbors. An AB&B would be like living next to a hotel. Not a very nice thing to do to the neighbors.

I agree for the most part. But some people would not be able to carry the expense without renting.

I am not crazy about renters, although there are many wonderful people who rent here. I just think that it is a slippery slope.

I wholeheartedly agree. We recently toured On Top of the World in Ocala and they only allow rentals that are a minimum of 6 months and one week and a maximum of one year. They also have real gated, secured roads. Both of these are very attractive to us. I don't think we are interested in moving there in particular but I am sure other communities do the same thing in case we ever decide to move.

The developer here loves the short term rentals because it helps to expose The Villages to a lot more people and thus may result in sales and the fact that they own a very robust rental company where they earn a lot of money in commissions managing those rentals.

Default From The Viewpoint of a Potential Future Villager

As a potential future Villager who has rented several times, how would someone get a taste of what it is like to be a Villager without renting 1, 2 or even 3 times before buying? Sure there is the Lifestyle program (which I did a few years ago), but I don't know if I would contemplate a 1,200 mile move from the Midwest to The Villages based on one Lifestyle visit.

Outside of the Lifestyle program, how do people in their mid to late 50's and up who are still working full time get to experience The Villages' lifestyle unless they rent for 2 or 3 weeks? Even if someone has worked for the same employer for 30 years, most people in the 55 to 62 age group who work in the private sector are getting at most 6 weeks of vacation, unless they are teachers with more extended summer vacation time.

Sorry for the rant, but as someone who can only rent in The Villages on a short term basis as I still hold a full time job with only so much vacation time, just wanted to get another viewpoint across. Maybe I will be a Villager in a few years based on the great rental experiences I have had in TV.

Could you provide a link to this?

Many posters have said "rent for a few months in The Villages before buying so you can find the best location for yourself". Other posters seem to really dislike rentals; perhaps they have had a bad experience with a renter in their neighborhood.

Outside of the Lifestyle program, how do people in their mid to late 50's and up who are still working full time get to experience The Villages unless they rent for 2 or 3 weeks? Even if someone has worked for the same employer for 30 years, most people in the 55 to 62 age group are getting at most 6 weeks of vacation, unless they are teachers with summers off.

Thanks for the input, Schaumburger. I for one hope you do move here some day; you'd be a wonderful addition to the community.
