Marco Island, FL


Outsiders not welcomed at Marco Island - 7/3/2016
I have been coming to Marco Island for the past couple of years to spend the 4th of July with my family in this beautiful city, but never again. From what we learned there is a big push by the locals to block families that live out of town from legally renting another homeowner's house to spend time vacationing. In less then 30 hours the cops were called to the house three times. Two times because of parking related issues which there are similar situations in other homes in the neiborhood and one call was made on the "assumption" that my family was going to set off fireworks. Yes an assumption! The call was made at 8am on July 2nd. The policemen were very nice and courteous and admitted they hated making these types of visits but they were just doing their job. We were advised that if they were called again they would be forced to issue citations. We also noticed some of the neighbors spying and looking into the home as if we were trouble. It is clear to us that Hispanic and Black families are not welcomed by the mostly white 60+ aged local residents. Hard working families that can obviously afford spending time in one of the costliest cities in FL. I also feel bad for the homeowners that rent their nice homes because of the revenue loss they will suffer from people being harassed and chased out of the city. I will make sure I spend by hard earned money somewhere else next year. Marco Island residents should be ashamed and embarrased of this behavior. The most ironic part of this whole issue is that we, the FL residents, are being chased out of a neighborhood in which most of them are out of towners themselves. The house we rented is actually owned by New Yorker not living in FL.
