Anyone renting their Vail property, or seeking to rent a property in Vail, for less than a consecutive thirty-day period should be aware of the town’s requirements for short-term rentals. These requirements apply regardless of how the properties are marketed – through a management company, on-line such as VRBO and Airbnb, newspaper, or word of mouth.

The application process includes the requirement of a signed affidavit acknowledging life safety, parking, trash, and noise regulations. It also includes the designation of a local property contact within a 60 minute distance of the short term rental unit. If the owner lives within that distance they may self-designate as the local contact. The local contact must be available 24/7 week to respond to complaints. Short-term rental properties are required to have individual Town of Vail sales tax licenses and file periodic returns.

We strongly recommend reading the adopted Ordinance prior to applying for your registration.
