LEE COUNTY, Fla. - With uncertainty looming in the Gulf of Mexico, one local hotel owner is guaranteeing that customers will enjoy a pristine Gulf coast during their vacation.
Lahaina Island Accommodations says travelers will be issued a full refund for their stay if oil reaches beaches here.
The company's owner says this is about being proactive and maintaining good customer service.
"We have folks who say they like that we're putting our money where our mouth is.. that we're taking care of the folks that come," explained Barbara Garfold, owner of Lahaina Island Accommodations.
Their main message? Beaches across southwest Florida are open for business, and the oil slick is not currently affecting beach-goers experience in the southwestern portion of the state.
