I second David's caution in re to sneaking by the HOA, and would advice not to do that. Taylor a purchase around your rental needs, this way you are safer.
I don't handle rental inquiries per se, but from what i see and hear, at least European renters have a very strong preference towards certain locations. Please give me a call at your convenience or email me if I can assist you.
All the best,

Fanfare - you would have to inform the HOA that there is a renter for security purposes... you would lose access to the common areas and even the gates (in the gated sections). You would also have to allow the HOA to approve them or you may be fined by the association. Some are stricter than others.
West Boca is nice...very family friendly and definitely a newer area in many ways. I would also look at Boca Isles, Boca Falls and Saturnia as viable alternatives.
You are right about ease of renting - West Boca especially Mission Bay does have its share of short term (6mo) renters due to the tennis center attracting youth from around the country for professional level training...but East would have higher insurance and/or condo fees!
I will be in my office tomorrow morning and would be happy to discuss these areas with you specifically targetting properties you are wanting to pursue.
Also the link below will show you everything for sale AND lease in Mission Bay.
(ps... Zillow is a terrible resource for valuation as it does not differentiate between viable and not-viable comps)
