Rancho Mirage has launched a hotline for residents to file anonymous complaints about vacation rentals.
This new ordinance will allow residents to disclose homes that are rented not in accordance with the rule allowing vacation rentals as long as they are at 28 days at the time.
For vacation rentals under that time line, the owners have to register with the city, get a city business license and pay for transient occupancy tax.
Also made clear that the occupancy cannot be more than 2 guests per bedroom.
What is going to happen to all the “party houses” and their owners? Of course this is now starting a polemic among a good number of such homes. Interesting to see if the other desert Cities will follow.
