Top Seasonal Rentals at Florida Retirement Communities

Knowing where the seasonal rentals are can be a big help for those wanting to get away in winter to a warmer climate.

A seasonal rental at a retirement community is different from a vacation rental.  There aren't as many of them and you need to reserve early before the season starts.  You also need to know the days you want to stay when you call.

September is about the last chance to get a seasonal rental at retirement communities.  If you missed out this year, keep this information handy for next year.

Seasonal rentals are structured to be easy for snowbirds to get away.   That is why most are fully furnished and there is no minimum lease term.

Seasonal rentals at retirement communities offer you more than a vacation condo as there are services that appeal to seniors such as transportation, meals, and social activities.  Some offer assisted living options for those needing those services.

In most cases, all you need is your food and clothes.
