  • If you live there

Short-term rentals

Rent the home you live in for less than 30 days at a time.

Bed and breakfasts

Rent up to two rooms in the home you live in for less than 30 days at a time and include breakfast.

Long-term rentals

Rent a residential property you own, including an investment property, for 30 days or more at a time.
