What is a Short-Term Rental?

A short-term rental is defined in the Port Angeles Municipal Code as lodging or guest rooms used, rented, or occupied for guest sleeping purposes for 30 days or less and that contain kitchen facilities, including but not limited to, refrigerators, stoves, and ovens. This definition includes dwelling units used, rented, or hired out for vacation homes or short-term rentals that allow guests to stay for 30 days or less. 

Dwelling units used, rented, or hired out for longer than 30 days are considered long-term rentals.
