Vacation Rentals


This information serves as a reminder of the restrictions and obligations you have within the Village of Key Biscayne as a registered short-term rental property owner. 


Those single-family homes registered as short-term rentals must adhere to the minimum rental period of 15 continuous days.  While a property of this type may rent for a longer period, a shorter rental period is prohibited.  Condominium units within associations that contain regulations for short-term rentals must abide by the particular by-laws of the condominium association.

Additionally, responsibilities may apply to your property in order to maintain the quality of the surroundings.  The property owner must manage or relay these responsibilities to each renter so that the value and character of the neighborhood is maintained.
