Palm Springs Rental Ordinance

Palm Springs has a strictly enforced vacation rental home city ordinance. These rules govern every vacation rental reservation booked in the city of Palm Springs. These are highlights and major concerns regarding vacation rental homes that the city addresses:
No music outside. Ever. If you are playing music inside, the doors must be closed.

  • People Noise during the day is permissible but must be measured and reasonable. Daytime is considered 10:00 am to 9:00 pm*
  • After 9:00 pm, start winding down the outdoor activities. If you are outside after 9:00 pm, it should sound as though you are not.
  • After 10:00 pm, you should be inside the home with the doors closed. The neighbors expect the usual silence a neighborhood would afford them. Even 2 or 3 people causally talking in the hot tub can be clearly audible to the neighbors and after 10:00 pm, that is not acceptable.

*The city ordinance mandates all pool and people noise must stop at 10:00 pm. However, in an over-abundance of caution and constant goal of the ultimate respect to our homes' neighbors, RELAX PALM SPRINGS chooses to operate with a more conservative noise curfew of 9:00 PM.

The city does limit the number of cars that can be parked at the property at any given time. The number of cars is set based on the number of bedrooms the home you rented offers. Please ask us if you haven't determined what that limit is. Carpool where appropriate.

The city limits the number of guests that may spend the night in each home as well as the number of visitors you may host during the day. Daytime is defined as 10:00 am to 9:00 pm. Both limits are strictly enforced and the maximum number of daytime guests include the overnight guest count. This is the maximum number of guests that may ever be on property at one time during the day. If you have rented a home, the limits are fully disclosed in the rental agreement. If you are considering different homes and have yet to book, feel free to ask us so that we can property identify the homes to suit your group's needs.

Each and every home has large trash and recycling bins. The city will come on property and pull the cans to the street and return them to the property when trash has been collected. The collection schedule is posted in the house. Please remove your trash throughout your stay to make for an efficient collection of debris. Remember that these are residential homes and have limited trash space... when on vacation you can make far more trash in one weekend than you would in every-day life over an entire week. We hope guests consider this when planning their holiday.
