It's almost always the same arguments for and against short term rentals:
Homeowners say that renting out a spare bedroom or an entire residence to vacationers is a great way to meet new people and earn extra cash. But municipalities, residents and homeowner groups see vacation rentals as nuisances and potential safety risks that should be banned or at least regulated.
Melinda Morgan, 49, of Fort Lauderdale said vacation renters in her neighborhood routinely blast loud music and party in the street. They also speed through the area, she said, prompting her to put up a sign to remind drivers that children are playing.
"These people are on vacation, so they have different hours and attitudes than the rest of us," Morgan said.
Bob Jasinski, who lives near a vacation rental in Fort Lauderdale's Riverside Park, says he has constant traffic on his dead-end street from renters, taxis and cleaning crews. He isn't opposed to the rentals but does want them regulated.
Susan Thomas, a resident of the Colee Hammock neighborhood in Fort Lauderdale, said she had to call police last year to deal with disorderly tenants occupying the vacation rental across the street.
