Longport now considering restrictions on short-term rentals. Commissioners may soon mandate a 7-day, minimum rental stay.
Currently, Longport has NO minimum rental stay. Visitors can rent for as little as one night.
According to Press of AC, local Realtors would like to see a minimum stay of 1 or 2 weeks written into the ordinance.
Without proper guidelines and enforcement, short-term rental websites like Airbnb and VRBO can quickly turn a Downbeach neighborhood into a multi-unit motel business managed by absentee landlords.

I live in Longport. We have several homes that rent their properties all summer long. We are ALL overwhelmed with cars.
Us locals can’t even park in front of our own house. Plus, loud kid parties that are not supervised with liquor.
The Mayor and Police say there are no issues… Shame on them.
All of our neighbors have called and filed report for all of this ..And no action taken.
Its all about the money… realtors & town stuffing there pockets.. What happen to our quiet Longport neighborhood?
Us locals pay taxes.
All neighbors want stricter regulations and better enforcement of those yearly rental rules.
