Charlotte County Safety Plan for Short-Term Vacation Rentals Revised

Charlotte County's safety plan for short-term vacation rentals, which was approved on May 20, has been revised. The revised plan was approved June 14, the Florida Department of Business & Professional Regulations. The plan outlines guidelines for reservations, health and safety of guests, and cleanliness of the properties.

A few guidelines from the revised Charlotte County safety plan include:

  • Reservations will not be permitted, nor new guests accepted for check-in from areas identified by Gov. DeSantis through executive orders as high-risk (currently Connecticut, New Jersey and New York). Areas may be added or deleted based upon further executive orders by the governor without the need for further amendment of the plan.
  • Reservations from international travelers will not be accepted.
  • The limit on number of guests in each rental will be no more than 10 and expand in accordance with state guidelines as we enter new phases.

The initial plan stated reservations from in-state areas identified by Florida's governor as COVID-19 hot spots were to be avoided for the next 45 days. These restrictions began May 18 and expired July 2.

The plan is subject to change. For the latest updates and complete overview of Charlotte County's safety plan for short-term vacation rentals visit www.rentals-reopen.com.
