The Lee County Tourist Development Council (TDC) and the Visitor & Convention Bureau (VCB) have developed the following Guidelines to assist Lee County properties to determine whether they are eligible to be placed on the VCB's Web site and/or in the Official Visitor Guide.
All owners requesting accommodations listings must be licensed with the State of Florida department of Business and Professional Regulation, pursuant to Chapter 509, Florida Statues, and must be a Lee County Bed Tax Collector.
Accommodations must have a local phone number and address, where guests may contact the owners if there is a problem with the unit, etc. or where Lee County may contact the owner regarding the renter, should there be a need to do so.
Listings are for properties with at least four units. Single units are not eligible.
The units must be handled locally. If the units are listed with a property management company, the Visitor Guide and Web listings will be under the main property management company.
Units must be rented on a year-round/short-term basis. Short-term refers to properties being rented for six months or less.
NOTE: The Visitor & Convention Bureau has no legal requirements to include anyone in its Visitor Guide or its Web site.
DIRECTIONS FOR APPLICATION:
Email the property name, address, phone, fax, main contact person, and Clerk of Courts tax account number to Courtney Hersl at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Your account will be checked. When cleared, we will begin the data collection process. If your property meets the above criteria, you will be provided contact information for Miles Media so that they can begin the data collection process for your business.
