Short-term Rentals

In recent years, the City of Temecula has seen a rapid increase in the number of short-term rentals that are listed on various websites. Residents have expressed both support and concern about the impact of short-term rentals on our local community.

At this juncture, the City of Temecula is developing an updated short-term rental ordinance. 

What is a short-term rental?

A short-term rental is considered a dwelling unit which is shared, in whole or in part, for temporary occupancy for periods of up to 30 consecutive days. Short-term rentals are often done as a way to generate rental income by the owner of the dwelling unit.

Upcoming Meetings (UPDATED 07/01/19)

Due to unforeseen scheduling difficulties, the short-term rental discussion scheduled for the July 9, 2019, City Council meeting will be rescheduled to a future date.

The future date will be communicated, once scheduled.
