Short Term Rentals
In 2018 the City of Seaside adopted regulations to permit and allow Short Term Rentals in the City of Seaside. This program currently only allows licenses to operators who can provide proof that they were operating a STR prior to April of 2018. hose that were not operating prior to that date, are not eligible for a license at this time.
If you are found to be operating a short term rental without a license, you will be issued a citation of up to $1,000 per day.

Heads up Seaside Short Term Rental Operators:
Monterey County Health issued a clarification about how STR’s can operate during Shelter-In-Place. Please read the order and make sure you are in compliance.
