Short Term Vacation Rentals

Pursuant to Executive Order 20-123 signed by Governor DeSantis on May 15, 2020 with an effective date of 12:01 a.m. on Monday, May 18, 2020, the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation (DPBR) issued minimum recommended standards for vacation rentals accepting guests.
These actions allowed Counties to seek approval to operate vacation rentals with a written request from the County Administrator and the county’s safety plan for vacation rental operations submitted to the DBPR Secretary.
Collier County’s request for approval and safety plan was approved on May 21, 2020. A copy of the Collier County safety plan can be found here.
For information and guidance for vacation rentals pursuant to Executive Order 20-123, please review the Department of Business and Professional Regulation (DPBR) Recommended Safety Measures and Best Practices for Vacation Rentals.
