I really doubt any immigration office would consider rental income as a qualified retirement source. As a landlord myself for decades, I always anticipate a 10% per year vacancy. I suggest you come up with the required ฿800,000 baht and get it in a Thai bank to season properly.

Is  your government pension enough to meet the 65K per month requirement?
Immigration only accept income from a pension, interest or dividends and may request proof of such.

If you obtain and enter on the Non O Visa, theoretically you can apply for the 1-year extension of stay with 2 x 65K monthly transfers, but you may have to stand your ground and argue your point with a senior IO.
Most IO's request 12 x 65K monthly transfers.

800K in a Thai bank for 2 months is the only method to guarantee success for a 1-year extension.
