Leave it alone! Any restrictions would be an intrusion of private property rights, period. We did vacation rentals of our Marco Island home and condo for many years up to 2004. When the market peaked we sold and took our money and rental buisness to California. This market became to saturated with rentals after the boom as it is today with many unexperenced owners desperatly taking any renter they can get. This is were the problem is--in order to attract the best renters and reduce problems you must have high rental standards and practices in place (handling it yourself personally NOT with a realestate company). All of our years in the Marco Island and The San Francisco Bay area the number of complaints or problems involving nightly/weekly rentals comprised not even a blip. Yes, enforce noise and parking ordinances. But no don't add any more obstacle's in an already tough rental market here. This is a resort island r-e-l-a-x. Anyhow, how many annual renters are you going to get here that will be able to pay enough for the owner to even come close to breaking even-answer=NONE. It's a tough market here with prices and Competition don't make it any tougher. We live here-just don't do buisness here anymore. We have never had any problems with any vacation rental here on Marco-never! City council--leave it alone already.
