The Short-Term Rental Policy* and amendment regarding Penalties for Short-Term Rental Violations* outline just a few things to know so that we can all safely live, play and visit in Winter Park. It requires owners to register their units before listing on VRBO, AirBNB or other similar sites. Owners are also required to pay a $150 registration fee, approved in Resolution 1850 (find more about fees here). Every owner is required to register their property, even if the unit is managed by a property manager. Registration forms can be accessed on the MUNIRevs website at the links below. Users will need to either log in or register to access the registration forms.
Beginning on October 31, 2021, all short-term rentals must now be registered with the Town of Winter Park. Short-term rental properties are required to be registered prior to any advertising or short-term renting. The registration number must be prominently displayed in all advertising for any short-term rental property.
All short-term rental registrations have the same expiration date of September 30. The registration is not pro-rated.
