Incorrect business name on map pin in my listing

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Search results for our vacation rental property (Lighthouse Beach Resort #13)  shows a map with the wrong business name (Windsock Beach Resort) at our location.  See below.

 

That business exists but at a different address.  I've submitted an edit to get that pin located correctly but that name seems to be tied to our business for some reason.  How can I get the map pin to show "Lighthouse Beach Resort !3" instead of "Windsock Beach Resort"?

 

Any help would be appreciated.

Hi Stanley

Are both of these "businesses" vacation rental units? Reason I ask is I don't believe either one should have a GMB listing. As per the guidelines,

Ineligible businesses
The following businesses aren’t eligible for a business listing:
...Rental or for-sale properties, such as vacation homes, model homes or vacant apartments. Sales or leasing offices, however, are eligible for verification....

I didn't see that exception as I just followed directions. Ours is a single
vacation rental property. The other is a hotel and probably is a valid
business listing under this rule. However, it is still incorrectly located.



Thanks for your help.

Well I've been trying to set up a Google+ page for my Vacation Rental and I keep hitting roadblocks. Get this... first of all, they refuse to let me create a new "Google My Business" page without using a real address. Obviously I'm not putting my home's real address in there because there is apparently no way to hide it once you do. Roadblock #1.
Anyone have a workaround?
Thanks!!
