Default Retirement Communities--55+ with rentals

Does anyone know of any 55+ retirement communities with rentals (suitable for singles)? Everything I've checked seems to be geared to buying a home/condo. Not everyone wants to buy a house or condo for retirement. Any thoughts?

I've been researching thevillages.com in Florida where there are hundreds of rental homes, more affordable in the summer months when the heat/humidity is insufferable. Their online forum is: talkofthevillages.com

You hate living with those wild 54 year olds, too?

Take a look at Hamburg Crossing near Asheville, NC. Their website shows two units for rent.

Thanks for the responses. I'm really looking for a denser living arrangement (apartments, attached townhomes) for rent, rather than renting single family homes. Does this exist in an active 55+ community?

Fairfield Glade near Crossville, TN, has some.
Gwin Realty Long Term Rentals: Houses and Condos for Rent in Fairfield Glade and Crossville, TN (http://www.gwinrealty.com/rentlong.html - broken link)
There are two parts to Fairfield Glade: there's a 55+ community which is huge and has condos, townhomes, single family, etc. and there's a golfing resort. They share some of the same amenities, with the 55+ side having community centers and medical centers.
It even has it's own newspapers. Check there for rentals.

My brother and sister-in-law moved from Mass. to The Villages, and they are very, very happy. They didn't care too much about living near the ocean so this was a perfect fit for them. - Judith

Check out Laguna Woods Village not far from Laguna Beach CA. I am also interested in that community and I believe they do have condos for rent.

Thanks again for the responses. I'll check these out. I think there are a lot of us out there, single women looking to retire in a place with lots of activities and opportunities for meeting people, but who are not in a position to buy a house. I appreciate the info.

Robson Ranch in Denton, just north of Fort Worth has rentals along with new homes and pre-owned. If you search Robson Ranch pre-owned, you can find rentals and pre-owned. And there are singles at Robson Ranch.
