Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
There are several lawsuits right now since FL law prevents cities from regulating short term rentals, but Miami Beach is the area where they have been enforcing their local short term rental ordinance. Here is the map of the area showing where short term rentals are allowed and where they are not:
Generally, short term rentals in south beach would be deemed illegal, but that is presuming you are actually caught and it is hard to prove or catch people doing this.

Thanks for the answer but what does the law say about renting out rooms in your own apartment on airbnb?
Expert:  Law Educator, Esq. replied 8 months ago.
Thank you for your reply.
The law says nothing specifically about you renting just a room in your own apartment if you are going to be there, it is all about short term rentals and even renting a room in your apartment is a short term rental, just more difficult for you to get caught if you are there at the same time.
