Airbnb and rentals are ruining The Villages

To the Editor:

Had I known people could rent out their homes or buy homes for the intent to rent I would have never purchased. If we aren’t a secure private 55 and over community we aren’t special at all. I also didn’t know a 80-year-old husband could die and his 35-year-old wife could set up shop. We may as well take the gates down. They serve no purpose anymore even if someone hasn’t knocked them down already.
