Eva Skinner, it sounds like you have a very uncooperative and unfriendly neighbor. The owner is the problem, not the fact that there are short term rentals. Good owners/neighbors engage in good vetting and neighbor practices to do their best that short term, or long term guests for that matter, don't impose on fellow members of the community. I represent an organization in Los Angeles trying to grasp with the same issues that are being dealt with not only in Pacific Beach. We have a lot of push back in beach communities like Venice. Like in Pacific Beach, many of the issues are from bars, those who migrate to the area and issues that have arisen long before online portals. Mind you not before short term rentals, which have been around as long as every one of those homes by the beach. The answer is isn't eliminating short term rentals, but reasonably seeing their being fully incorporated into the economy so that all gain the most benefit. Short term rentals can generate considerable TOT revenue for communities. It generates sales tax revenue with increased tourism and other travel. It increases employment. Limiting the number of days of short term rentals only limits potential benefits. It doesn't help anyone ultimately and can severely hurt some. Keep in mind, some are resorting to this to keep their home; whether they are renting a room within it or the place itself. Others have built this as their livelihood in a far more challenging time to be an entrepreneur. Robert St.Genis Director of Operations, LASTRA
