PLEASE NOTE: Providing Rental Leads is not normally a part of our business however, we have received so many requests for Senior Rental information that we decided to provide this 7-Step Plan to help you find Senior Rentals. If you change your mind about renting and decide to purchase a home instead, please click on "Age 55+ Communities" above. We would love to help you find your dream home in one of our great Active Adult Communities. Good Luck!



Step 1- Craigslist:
Read this whole paragraph first and then Click-on > San Diego Craigslist to get to the San Diego Craigslist webpage. To show only North County Senior Rentals; first make sure that the top row of boxes contains the words "San Diego > North SD County > Housing > apts/housing for rent." The "Search" box has a hand-held magnifier symbol. This is very important> In the Search box, type the North County city where you want to live followed by the word “Senior."  For example, type in "Oceanside Senior" or a different North County city and Senior possibly: San Marcos Senior, Carlsbad Senior, Fallbrook Senior, Escondido Senior, Rancho Bernardo Senior, Vista Senior, etc.). Then hit the ENTER key. This should provide you with a list of rentals that are available in senior communities in that city. If you are looking for a furnished rental, in the search box type the preferred city and "Furnished" or "Senior Furnished" (For example type "Carlsbad Furnished" or Carlsbad Senior Furnished").

Note: You may also "Post" an ad on Craigslist- Describe what you are looking for and ask if anyone has rentals available that meet your requirements.


Step 2- Senior Housing Guide:

Click on >  After Senior Housing Guide.  Enter: Location and Housing Type.


Step 3- Senior Apartment Guide:

Click on > Senior Apartment Guide. Enter: Location and click on the city that comes up on the left side of the page.


Step 4- City Sponsored Affordable Housing  (May have a waiting list):

Click on > Affordable Apartments in San Marcos, Affordable Senior Apartments in Carlsbad, Affordable Housing in:  Oceanside, Vista and Escondido.


Step 5- Drive Around our Active Adult Communities and look for "For Rent" signs:
f all of the above steps fail, rive to our Active Adult communities and look for rentals. Click on>  Senior Communities and scroll down to a Senior Community that interests you.

Click on that Senior Community then look for "MAP" and click on it (it is usually located in the "Its Great Location" section). The Oceana Senior Communities are slightly different than the other community web pages. For the Oceana communities, you can access a map by clicking-on the underlined Oceana community name such as "Original Oceana." In the upper left-hand corner of each map, you will find the address of the entrance to the Senior Community. Drive to and enter the community of interest. If possible, check at the gate or club house for rental information and then drive around looking at the available rentals and look for "For Rent" signs. Don't forget to look for signs posted in the windows of condos.

Please email if you would like to receive a pdf copy of a location guide to all 76 of our Age 55+ communities.

Note: If it is a guarded-gated community, go to the guard house and tell the person there what you are looking for and ask permission to enter. If the gate is closed or there is no one available at a guard house, park and wait for a resident to open the gate and then tell them what you are looking for and ask for permission to follow them in. It should be noted that Mobile Home Parks where the residents rent the spaces may not allow owners to offer their homes for rent. Mobile Home Parks where the resident owns the land however may have some rentals available.
