Short-Term Rentals


In May of 2022, the Town Council passed an ordinance regulating how short-term rentals will operate on the Island. The ordinance, which applies to privately owned residential property used as vacation homes and short-term rentals for a rental period of less than 30 days, goes into effect on January 2023.

The Town will begin accepting applications for permits through its short-term rental permitting portal on January 3, 2023.

Informational Meetings

The Town will host two informational sessions to educate short-term rental unit owners and property managers about the Town's new requirements and regulations for short-term rentals.

Beginning January 2023, short-term rental owners are required to have a permit in addition to a business license to operate within Town limits.
