A Vacation Home Rental means one dwelling unit, including either the primary single-family home, one unit of a duplex, or a single condominium unit, rented for the purpose of overnight lodging for a period or not less than one night and not more than 30 days other than ongoing month-to-month tenancy granted to the same renter for the same unit (El Dorado County Ordinance §5.56.030)
Rentals of over 30-days are considered long-term rentals and are subject to California’s civil Landlord-Tenant laws. Long-term rentals are not regulated under the County’s VHR Ordinances.
Often, what some would consider a VHR violation isn’t one according to the VHR ordinance. (Here) The ordinance sets specific violations to be enforced; some are directed towards the renter and some are directed toward the owner.
