It’s not meant to be comprehensive, because the regulations are very numerous, but it’ll give you an excellent picture of what it would take to own a vacation rental in the city.

I should have written this prior to opening up Lux Life Palm Springs, because it would honestly have saved me a ton of grief. I was just a little busy at the time, though, juggling the operations of the short term rental business with our move to Memphis. Hindsight is 20/20, as they say.
