Vacation / Short-term Rentals
Vacation/short-term rentals (less than six months and one day) have become popular alternatives to traditional hotels. However, pursuant to the Miami Beach City Code (Miami Beach Land Development Regulation – Chapter 142, Article IV, Division 3) vacation/short-term rentals are prohibited in all single-family homes and in many multi-family housing buildings in certain zoning districts of Miami Beach. (See Short-term Rental Map)Approved vacation/short-term rentals have the proper licenses and/or certificates of use that permits the activity.If a building or unit is found to be operating a short-term rental illegally, tenants/visitors will be evicted and fines will apply to the owner.
