Short-term rentals (STRs) are also known as vacation rentals, and are lodgings that provide guest accommodation for less than 30 consecutive days. In order to preserve housing for long-term residents, STRs are only permitted in resort-zoned areas and a couple of specific apartment-zoned areas.
There are two types of STR:
- Bed and breakfast homes (B&Bs) – The homeowner or permanent resident is present during the transient stay. Up to two rooms may be rented, with a maximum of two adult transient occupants per room.
- Transient vacation units (TVUs) – Commonly known as whole home or unhosted rentals. A maximum of two adult transient occupants are allowed per room.
