May I Vacation Rent My Naples Gulf Access Home?

As a Broker of Naples Gulf Access properties, I am frequently asked if it’s possible to vacation rent one’s home.  In Naples, the short answer is yes, provided you report the required sales (6%) and tourist tax (4% in Collier County).  On the State level, cities and counties cannot prohibit vacation rentals, or regulate the duration or frequency of the rentals.  Local governments may license and inspect properties, and issue citations for noise and rules infractions.  Despite nothing in Florida Law prohibiting vacation rentals,  some local Florida Governments, like those in Miami-Dade County, are still trying to pass local Ordinances against vacation rentals.

The anti-vacation rental crowed argues their right to quiet enjoyment of their properties are infringed by wild vacation parties.  The pro vacation rentals contend they have a constitutional right to rent out the property, and it’s a huge driver of the economy.  One report that found the vacation-rental industry generated $1.2 billion in revenue through rentals to 6.6 million guests in Florida last year.  This proposed law seems to subdue the opposition to Naples Gulf Access vacation rentals.  The House Commerce Committee on Thursday approved the proposal HB 1011.  The proposed changes would ban ordinances that specifically target vacation rentals. Cities and counties would still be allowed to pass ordinances dealing with noise, parking and trash, so long as they apply to all properties fairly.

Bill sponsor Jason Fischer, R-Jacksonville, said the bill “doesn’t prevent local governments from dealing with issues,” such as “the party house” and noise issues, who said, “Make no mistake, this bill doesn’t do anything to change the power of local governments when it comes to dealing with good-neighbor policies that affect the neighborhood.”

The next steps is the House plan is headed to the floor for a vote. A Senate version SB 1128, sponsored by Sen. Manny Diaz Jr., R-Hialeah, needs to clear one more committee before it then goes to the Senate.  Naples Gulf Access will provide updates on this Bill, so please stay tuned.
