you are renting. Renters are eligible for either of
two IDs. The ID will determine the level of access
you will have to amenities during your stay in the
- Non-owner "Temporary" Resident IDs
This Non-owner Temporary Resident ID provides full
access to TV amenities. These are particularly beneficial
to golf enthusiasts seeking to book tee-times during
high-season as well as those intending to join groups
and classes. As a renter you are entitled to up to
two IDs per household. This ID is valid for the duration
of the visit (up to three years). You will be required
to pay a fee for this ID.
- Guest IDs
When renting as a group of three or more, "extra"
guests can obtain Guest IDs.
Guest IDs provide access to select amenities and
are issued without charge. During high season (Jan-Mar)
renters with Guest IDs may be wait-listed for classes
and events, giving priority access to residents and
non-residents with temporary resident IDs.
As a renter you need to ask the owner of the home
you are renting for Gate Cards. Gate Cards permit
renters to go about the community freely when going
into a gated area. Your homeowner will provide the
Gate Card. Homeowners obtain the gate cards from the
District office in Lake Sumter Landing. If you lose
the homeowers gate card you will be required to pay
the fee to obtain a new gate card.
