Are short-term rentals allowed?

Short-term rentals, such as those listed on Airbnb and similar sites, are prohibited in all residential zones within Diamond Bar.  The Diamond Bar Municipal Code defines a hotel or motel as “facilities with guest rooms or suites, provided with or without kitchen facilities, rented to the general public for transient lodging (less than 30 days).” By definition, a residence being rented to a tenant for fewer than 30 days is, therefore, classified as a hotel/motel, and is not a permissible use in residential zones pursuant to the City’s land use table. For more information, refer to Sec. 22.08.030. and Sec. 22.80.020. of the Diamond Bar Municipal Code.
