Prior to the MCA Board of Directors vote to amend the Restrictions last December, said homes could be rented only for at least two months and no more than twice within a 12-month period. Please note, however, that under Sarasota County zoning, a home rented for less than 30 days cannot be rented again for at least another 30 days.
