How can I confirm the validity of vacation rentals?

In today’s web-based environment, it has become very easy for illegal vacation rentals to be advertised on various types of social media. The City of Key West strongly recommends that the general public confirm the validity of licensed vacation rentals prior to sending payment to the advertiser.

Additional information regarding transient rentals can be found within the City municipal code. Please email the Licensing Division if you have any questions as to the validity of an advertised vacation rental property.
