I was wondering when this would happen.
Here in Satellite Beach, Airbnb most certainly violates city code. The intention of the rule isn’t really to protect hotel interests, but to protect neighbors from transient traffic. Most suburban neighborhoods have short term lease restrictions for the same reason.
It might be great to make a little side income on an empty property, and it’s certainly great for consumers to find interesting and cheap places to stay — but it sucks for the person living underneath who now lives under a de-facto hotel room.
Curious to see where all of this ends up going.
