My spot in Florida

Looking for some thoughts from the group. I got a little burnt out looking for places to stay when we go to Florida to visit my son and now twin grand babies. We have a portfolio of properties in PA and have run some Air BB properties for some time, so we decided it was time to start buying in Florida. Our first purchase is a small bungalow in a historic fishing village of Aripeka. The benefit to this property for me is that it sits on a very large private lot. We plan to put in the equivalent of a pull through site in the property with full hook ups. There will be a pavilion with outdoor kitchen/dining and living area. We will set the house up as an Air BB with its own separate private outdoor space. I am thinking we could rent out our private RV space when we are not using it. My question is where would be the best to advertise the RV space for people looking for a place to stay in the area. We all know how hard it can be especially in the winter to find spots in Florida so if this works out I would like to actually buy more properties to do the same thing. I appreciate any input that you all can provide.

I'm sure you're going to run afoul of zoning regulations.

Zoning is one thing I looked into. My journey started looking for a lot on the water that I could just have utilities on to hook up RV when we are there. We found that if we have a property with a permanent home on the site we can have our RV set up on the property.

I have a family member who rents her RV on AirB&B. Weve found numerous others on Hipcamp.

Two issues. 1)Waterfront houses are vulnerable to flooding in hurricanes. Insurance is absurdly expensive for them. 2) while we were allowed to have an RV pad and stored our coach there, the town would not allow anyone to live in it. Strictly enforced by code enforcement and he visited us numerous times to check.
When we went full time, we sold the house and bought an RV lot in a nice but reasonably priced resort. It's there whenever we want it, the park does the mowing, forwards our mail, and we have a ligitamet address for banks etc. We also can just turn the key and evacuate for hurricanes without worrying about dealing with storm damage.

Aripeka and Hernando County have been changing a lot in the past several years. Hernando County only allows living in an RV in RV parks or for a period of up to 6 months if there is no building on the property 00 this rules you out.
You can also have friends/family visit in an RV on your property for a period of 2 weeks, if the zoning permits it . I think your plan to rent out your RV site will fail if a neighbor decides to complain as saying renter are friends/family is pushing it. See Below :

Non-resident: When a recreation vehicle is used as transportation of visitors to this county to visit
friends or relatives who are residing in this county, the recreation vehicle may be used on the premises
of the visited family for a period not to exceed fourteen (14) days.
The visiting party must file an application giving their name and location with the Administrative
Official within two (2) working days of arrival.



Good luck and maybe if you keep under the radar, you'll be ok
