Airbnb and Vrbo (“Vacation Rentals By Owner”) give property owners the opportunity to rent out their units to travelers in our great state of Florida. But while these two companies have policies and requirements for the rental units and hosts, by the very nature of the service, they do not have the level of oversight or control that a hotel would have. While most hosts keep their units safe and in good repair, since they want good reviews and future business, some rentals are disastrous and can cause serious harm to guests.
You have the right to a safe visit while you’re in Florida. Airbnb and Vrbo as well as the individual renters should be held liable if you are injured during your stay due to their negligence.
