Lesley DeMuth City Clerk ldemuth@mygulfport.us (727) 893‐1012

The City of Gulfport does allow for short term rental use, but only in certain zoning districts.  The zoning districts where short term rental use is an allowed use must list transient accommodations as either a permitted use or a conditional use. If transient accommodations use is listed within a zoning district, the regulation for such a use is through the definition section of the zoning code, Chapter 22, Zoning.  Outside of these areas, the minimum rental time is one month and no more than three times per year. Here is a map with the permitted and conditional uses.  Please consult the municode for specifics regarding the zoning districts.

Sec. 110-842. – Short-term vacation rental minimum requirements.

Short term vacation rentals shall be permitted in all residential zoning districts provided they are in compliance with this section. No person shall rent or lease all or any portion of a dwelling unit as a short-term vacation rental, as defined in this article, without initially and then on a continuing basis:

(1)Obtaining a Florida Department of Revenue certificate of registration for purposes of collecting and remitting tourist development taxes, sales surtaxes, and transient rental taxes, if applicable; and

(2)Obtaining a Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation license as a transient public lodging establishment, if applicable; and

(3)After first securing a certificate from the department of revenue, and a license from the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation, if applicable, an applicant may then obtain a business tax receipt from the City of Indian Rocks Beach pursuant to chapter 58 of the city’s Code of Ordinances.

Upon initial adoption of this section, owners of short term vacation rentals shall have 45 days to submit documentary evidence to the City of Indian Rocks Beach evidencing their individual efforts to register with the Florida Department of Revenue in compliance with this section. In the event items (1) or (2) above are not applicable to the property, the property owner shall provide a written statement and any supporting documentation setting forth the reason the requirement does not apply. The city manager or his/her designee shall make a final determination as to the applicability of these minimum requirements for a short term vacation rental.

These requirements will not be imposed so as to affect contracts that pre-exist the effective date of this chapter.

(c) Annual inspections may be made by the city through appointment with the vacation rental owner or agent, as applicable. If a city inspector has made an appointment with vacation rental owner or agent, as applicable, for an inspection, and the city inspector is unable to complete the inspection as a result of an action or inaction of the vacation rental owner or agent, or an occupant of the vacation rental, the vacation rental owner shall be charged a “re-inspection” fee totaling $75.00. The re-inspection fee shall be paid prior to scheduling the re-inspection. In addition, failure of a vacation rental owner or agent, as applicable, to make the vacation rental available for an inspection within 20 days after notification by the city in writing that the city is ready to conduct an inspection, shall be a violation of this chapter punishable by a fine as provided for in section 1-15 of this Code. Such violation shall continue until the inspection is accomplished. Each day that such violation continues may be deemed a separate violation.

(3) Advertising requirement. All advertising for vacation rental units shall identify the city-issued business tax receipt number associated with the advertised rental property. The vacation business tax receipt number shall be included on all advertising, including, but not limited to print and internet-based advertising.

The City has adopted regulations for short term rentals. Below is a summary list. The City’s rules do not replace or alter any requirements imposed by the State of Florida, including any requirements for state licensure or state sales tax. These rules also do not affect additional regulations prescribed by Home Owners Associations (HOAs), Property Owners Associations (POAs) or other deed restrictions. It is the property owner’s responsibility to comply with any state, HOA, POA, or deed requirements or face potential enforcement or penalties from those authorities. The City, however, does not enforce the state’s licensure or sales tax requirements or HOA, POA, or deed restrictions.

SUMMARY OF CITY RULES FOR SHORT TERM RENTALS

Minimum Standards. The property must meet the minimum standards set forth in the Florida Building Code, the Florida Fire Code, the Florida Life Safety Code; and the City’s Comprehensive Development CodeAs a short term rental, the fire code requires a high hazard inspection be performed annually.
Swimming Pools. If the property has a swimming pool, spas or hot tubs, such features must comply with the standards of the Residential Swimming Pool Safety Act (found in Chapter 515 of Florida Statutes).
Fire extinguisher. Portable fire extinguishers must be installed on each floor of the property in open areas or with appropriate markings showing the location.

Designated Responsible Party Posting. The name and telephone number of the responsible party must either be posted on the front exterior of the property in an area visible to the public or associated with the property through the City’s alarm decal system. This person must be available twenty-four (24) hours a day, seven (7) days a week and capable of directly responding, or directing a designated agent to directly respond to and resolve any issues or concerns with the short term rental. If necessary, the designated responsible party must be willing and able to come to the short-term vacation rental unit within two (2) hours following notification to address any issue that is not capable of being addressed via telephone.
Maximum Occupancy. The maximum number of guests cannot exceed 1 person per 150 gross square feet of air-conditioned living space.
Parking. One off-street parking space must be available per three guests. Garage spaces may count toward this requirement if the garage is open (i.e. unobstructed) and made available to guests for parking.
Other standards. The property must otherwise comply with all other standards contained the City’s Code of Ordinances and Comprehensive Development Code (including requirements related to noise, and nuisances). Visit Largo’s Code of Ordinances to learn more about Largo’s noise regulations.

 

Okay, got it! What do I do now?

1. Contact Largo Fire Rescue to schedule your High Hazard Inspection. The cost of such inspections $100 as prescribed by the City’s fee ordinance. This inspection must be conducted annually per the Florida Fire Code.

2. Designate your responsible party. This can be either be done by posting the name and telephone number on the exterior of the property, in an area visible to the public or this can be accomplished by adding this information to the City’s alarm decal system. An example of a Responsible Party External Notice is available online.

Remember, the designated responsible party can be the owner, a property management company, or another person over 18, and must be available 24/7 to resolve any issues or concerns with the short termrental.

3. Post required information for your rental guests. You can use this external posting which contains important safety information for your guests and is required to be posted in a conspicuous location within each rental unit.

4. That’s all, and happy hosting!

Residential uses means, for the purpose of these regulations, single‐family, child foster home, community residential home, garage apartment,
duplex, multifamily, town house, boarding and rooming house, domiciliary and retirement home, and nursing home, which are available for
occupancy on no less than a monthly basis, or for less than a monthly basis three or fewer times in any consecutive 365‐day period. A use which
meets the definition of “transient accommodation use” is not considered a residential use for the purposes of this chapter. [at 16.90.020.3. ‐
Definitions.]

Transient accommodation uses means a building containing one or more transient accommodation units, one or more of which is occupied by one
or more persons, or offered or advertised as being available for such occupancy, when the right of occupancy is for a term less than monthly, such
right of occupancy being available more than three times in any consecutive 365‐day period. The determination that a property is being used as a
transient accommodation use is made without regard to the form of ownership of the property or unit, or whether the occupant has a direct or an
indirect ownership interest in the property or unit; and without regard to whether the right of occupancy arises from a rental agreement, other
agreement, or the payment of consideration. The term “transient accommodation uses” includes but is not limited to hotels, motels, recreational
vehicle parks, tourist lodging facilities, resort condominiums, resort dwellings, vacation resorts, and dwelling units occupied or available for
occupancy on an interval ownership or “time share” basis, when any of the above are made available for occupancy more than three times in any
consecutive 365‐day period and the right of occupancy is for a term less than monthly.
The term “transient accommodation uses” does not include any of the following uses if such use otherwise complies with the applicable
requirements of the City and is licensed by the State of Florida, if such licensing is required by law: bed and breakfast homes, community residential
homes, nursing homes, rehabilitation facilities for persons with drug, alcohol, or physical impairments, respite care facilities for persons with
terminal illnesses and their families, short‐term/emergency housing or long term housing where allowed by this chapter, and child foster homes.
The term “transient accommodation uses” does not include a guest house dwelling, when one or both of the sleeping rooms are located as a
permitted accessory use within and incidental to the primary residential structure and the primary residential structure is owned by a natural
person and occupied by the owner. A use which is otherwise a residential use is not considered a “transient accommodations use” solely because it
is occupied by members of the owner’s family, a housekeeper or caretaker, or guests who reside on the premises without paying rent or other
consideration for such occupancy. The term “transient accommodation uses” does not prohibit the owner of a residential dwelling unit from
occupying the dwelling unit as infrequently as the owner may desire. [ibid.]
Subsequently in the code, the only use that approximates vacation rental is a bed and breakfast, which is not permitted for a residential
neighborhood.

Dwelling, tourist means a single‐family, two‐family or multifamily dwelling which is used as a tourist dwelling. A residential dwelling shall be
considered a tourist dwelling according to the following criteria:

(1) If the single‐family, two‐family or multifamily dwelling is subject to or operates under any arrangement plan or design whereby the use of the
dwelling or unit in the dwelling has been segmented over time so that owners, lessees or holders (regardless of the form of ownership or the form
in which the right to use is expressed) of such unit has a recurring exclusive right to use either that dwelling or unit or another unit in the same
dwelling according to a predetermined fixed schedule and only if the schedule would permit in any one year a change or turnover of occupancy six
or more times, it shall be considered a tourist dwelling.

(2) If the single‐family, two‐family or multifamily dwelling operates under or is subject to an arrangement plan or design whereby sleeping
accommodations and sanitary facilities in the dwelling or in a unit in the dwelling are offered to the public or reserved to private parties, or are
advertised as being available, and the use thereof by members of the public or private parties is primarily on a daily, weekly, monthly or seasonal
basis, it shall be considered a tourist dwelling. Provided that when the dwelling or unit in the dwelling is the legal domicile, and/or the sole
permanent residence of the occupant, occupants, and/or guest(s), a rebuttable presumption arises that the dwelling or unit in the dwelling is not
being used as a tourist dwelling. Provided further that if the turnover in occupancy of such dwelling or unit in the dwelling does not change more
frequently than six times or more in any continuous 12‐month period, then a rebuttable presumption shall arise that the dwelling or unit in the
dwelling is not being used as a tourist dwelling. In determining whether a property is used as a tourist dwelling, such determination shall be made
without regard to the form of ownership of the dwelling or unit in the dwelling, or whether the occupant, or occupants, has or have a direct or
indirect ownership interest in the dwelling or unit; and without regard to whether the right of occupancy arises from a rental agreement other
agreement, or the payment of consideration.

(3) In addition to the above, if a single‐family dwelling located in the RU‐75 land use district is operated or used in such a way that it has a turnover
in occupancy of more than two times in any one year, it shall create a rebuttable presumption that such single‐family dwelling is a tourist dwelling

2. Applicability. Nothing herein shall be construed to affect the validity or to otherwise prevent the enforcement of deed restrictions, or other similar instruments which, either explicitly or implicitly prohibit vacation rentals within a subdivision, planned unit development, condominium, or MPUD Master Planned Unit Development.

3. Existing Nonconformities. Certain vacation rentals were eligible for nonconforming (grandfathered) status in accordance with Ordinance No. 99-21 and are on file with the County Administrator or designee.
