A coalition lead by Carmel Valley Association has achieved a Consensus Position on Short-Term Rentals and Home Stays.  The Planning Commission Staff also has an Ordinance which has similarities and differences.  The Consensus Position and the current Planning Commission Staff positions are compared here.

 In summary:

The only allowable form of Short-Term Rental will be a “Home Stay”  (except in Big Sur), and only to the extent of the number of “Visitor Serving Units” allowed in the Land Use Plans.  Innovative Enforcement that relieves the burden on neighbors and Home Stay operators alike.
