Charlotte County has reopened Short-Term Vacation Rentals
State Approves Charlotte County Safety Plan to Reopen Short-Term Vacation RentalsOn May 20, the Florida Department of Business & Professional Regulations approved Charlotte County's safety plan to reopen short-term vacation rentals.
Submitted on May 18, the plan outlines guidelines for reservations, health and safety of guests and cleanliness of the properties.
The Charlotte County economy has suffered greatly over the last few months, with many vacation rental owners having had no income coming in since the short-term rental ban was enacted on March 28. With restrictions on short term approvals now lifted, vacation rental owners are looking optimistically ahead.
Vacation rentals will now be permitted to take bookings over the Memorial Day weekend and afterwards, allowing Owners to begin to recover from the financial hardships endured as a result of COVID-19.
The guidelines from Charlotte County's safety plan include:
- Vacation rentals reservations and stays will be allowed from all U.S. states with COVID-19 case rate less than
700 cases/100,000 residents
- Reservations from areas identified by Florida's governor as COVID-19 hot spots through executive orders are to
be avoided for the next 45 days
- Reservations from international travelers are not yet accepted
"We are thrilled to have vacation rentals reopen," said Keith Farlow, co-owner of Farlow's On The Water. "Having visitors able to stay in our short-term rentals is the next level of economic recovery for our area. As a restaurant owner, we see and appreciate that dining out is part of the vacation experience."
