This is the home on Marco Island which is owned by James and Ann Mardis.  They spend 3-4 months at this home and rent it the rest of the year.

Marco Island officials said they knew they would be sued when they passed the vacation rental ordinance, and now it is happening. Last week the Florida Association of Realtors filed a 143-page lawsuit against the city of Marco Island claiming that the ordinance is illegal.

The ordinance requires single family home rental properties to be used for less than 30 days at a time to be registered with the city and conform to a series of stringent regulations.

The Florida Association of Realtors had lengthy lists in the lawsuit of why they say it is illegal including:

The vacation rental ordinance only applies to single family homes in the residential (RSF) zoning making it an Equal Rights violation.
