Short-Term Rentals in Huntington Beach

Short-term rentals have become very popular in the last few years.  Short-term rentals are defined as a residential unit rented for a term of thirty (30) or fewer consecutive nights.  On December 21, 2020, the Huntington Beach City Council voted to approve Ordinance No. 4224 amending the Huntington Beach Municipal Code (HBMC) by adding Chapter 5.120 Short-Term Rentals (STRs).

 

Final approval of Ordinance No. 4224 (Short-Term Rentals) was on January 19, 2021.  The Ordinance was effective on February 19, 2021.  The STR Permit fee resolution was adopted on March 1, 2021.
