Advertising of short term residential rentals is prohibited in Monterey neighborhoods. Enforcement of Monterey City Code (MCC), Section § 22-19.5 "Advertisement of short-term rentals" ordinance is in effect. You can report addresses that are potentially in violation. The City of Monterey is working with Host Compliance, a leading provider of short-term rental compliance monitoring and enforcement solutions for local governments. Host Compliance offers two ways you can report addresses that are potentially in violation: a short term rental telephone hotline - 435-STR-HELP (787-7357) - and an online form to submit your complaint - https://hostcompliance.com/tips. Both reporting options are available 24 hours a day/seven days a week for neighbors to report non-emergency problems related to short-term rental properties.
