Palm Springs Good Neighbor Brochure
GOOD NEIGHBOR BROCHURE- For Vacation Rentals in Palm Springs
WELCOME TO PALM SPRINGS
Palm Springs is world-famous for its warm welcoming of visitors while on vacation. We are pleased you have chosen to spend your vacation in our City. There is so much to see and do. Or, if you choose, just sit back, relax and do nothing at all. Like many of our visitors, you have decided to rent a house or a condominium for your own unique experience. That’s great. There are many benefits to doing that. Perhaps the greatest benefit is the pleasure of residing even for a short stay in one of our beautiful residential neighborhoods. You will be among many permanent residents who value the look and feel of a quiet and safe place to live. They, and the City, will look to you for your help in preserving that sense of peace and quiet. In short, being a vacation renter also means being a good neighbor.
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
This brochure is intended to highlight a few ways you can be a good neighbor and to inform you of The City’s Vacation Rental guidelines during your stay. Please do not create excessive noise or disturbances or engage in disorderly conduct. Consider how you would want your neighbors to behave in your own neighborhood back home. Chances are your Palm Springs neighbors will expect the same of you. A little consideration goes a long way. We ask you to please observe the following City of Palm Springs Rules and Regulations for Vacation Rentals.
WHO’S MAKING ALL THAT NOISE?
• MUSIC is not allowed outside of your Vacation Rental unit. Music may not be heard at the property lines at any time of the day (that includes music coming from inside of the home). Please, don’t bring the speakers outside and crank up the music, even if you think everyone will enjoy it. If your neighbors can hear music, you are in violation of the City Ordinance. There are NO WARNINGS given by the Code Compliance Department
• POOL TIME is one of the most popular activities to enjoy in Palm Springs. Please keep voices and pool activities to a reasonable level. Continued and ongoing screaming for an extended period of time is one way to disturb the neighbors. Please be thoughtful.
• NIGHT TIME hours are between 10pm and 10am. Please consider moving indoors after 10pm. If you choose to be outside, please be considerate of the neighbors and use indoor voices. Please remember our neighborhoods are quiet, surrounded by mountains and voices can easily carry.
• A CALL from the neighbors to the City will bring the Vacation Rental Compliance Officers to your door. Our officers may issue you a citation if you exceed the allowed noise levels or if another violation is observed. So please, keep the noise down and be considerate of the neighbors. You may be on vacation, but other occupants in homes around your vacation home may not be.
WHOSE CAR IS THAT?
Only ONE vehicle per bedroom is allowed at any given time. Utilize driveway and/or garage when PARKING your vehicle before using street parking. And never block any driveway or street access.
HOW MANY GUESTS IN A HOME?
Please abide by the OCCUPANCY limits in the chart below. Day Time occupancy is between 10am and 10pm.
- 3 Bedroom, Max overnight 6 guest, plus 4 daytime guests and 3 cars are allowed
- 4 Bedroom, Max overnight 8 guests, plus 4 daytime guests, and 4 cars are allowed
- 5 Bedroom, Max overnight 10 guests, plus 4 daytime guests, and 5 cars are allowed
Palm Springs requires that all dogs be on a LEASH whenever they are outside, except in the City’s Dog Park. Also, we expect everyone to pick up after their pet. NEVER leave your pet unattended in a vehicle; it is illegal all year long. And just like at home, a barking or whining dog disturbs the neighbors.
WHOSE TURN IS IT TO TAKE OUT THE TRASH?
Palm Springs residents recycle as much as they can and we hope you will too. If you have a blue recycling cart where you are staying, please use it to recycle metal, paper, glass and plastic products. Please DO NOT STORE trash and refuse within PUBLIC VIEW, except in proper containers for the purpose of collection. If you are staying in a house, PSDS will pick up your trash and empty your recycling cart on your scheduled collection day(s). Please do not leave trash or recycling at the curb.
WHAT ELSE SHOULD I KNOW?
Please keep in mind that you may be cited or fined by the City, or even evicted by the owner, for creating a disturbance or for violating other provisions of the City’s Vacation Rental Ordinance. The surrounding neighbors have been given a 24-hour number to CALL should they need to file a complaint.
The owner or agent you are renting from will be able to answer any questions that you may have. Enjoy your stay!
