Remove duplicate incorrect business

Our guest house wind-rose is located in Gordons Bay about 45km from Cape Town / South Africa. Unfortunately there is a WindRose (mind the missing dash) guest house in Rondebosch (much closer to Cape Town) on Google Maps at -33.9708569,18.4883952 which does not exist but uses our address details. This might have been an error in the past but how to remove this location safely without ours affected?

Thanks in advance!

Peter

Hi @Peter V, do you have a link to the "other" WindRose listing on Google Maps? I can't locate it.

 

Thanks

Solved. Google maps team obviously removed it same day after I classified as duplicate and ownership issue. Never expected they would act so fast and my maps listing is still fine.

Our guests won't drive 35km in the wrong direction and call us where the guest house is 😉
